My Mom has what she calls a counter top oven (she refuses to replace her broken oven) and really enjoys. They make me nervous. Plus, my kitchen is tiny and really no room for more than the toaster. So, I use the oven sparingly in the summer.
Another dream item for a future kitchen is a double oven, where one of the ovens is smaller than the other -- not two full-size ovens.
Also, I'd have to agree with the suggestion of a microwave - it is what I use for warming leftovers and actually for some of my frozen veggies.
