Necessary in my book. I have a countertop toaster oven that I use occasionally for reheating, but it's incredibly uneven due to proximity to the heating elements. Plus, there are things I do in the real oven that I wouldn't consider in a countertop. For example, homemade pizza at 550 in convection mode, I'm not doing that in a countertop unit.

Another key feature of our 'traditional' oven is that it has a warming drawer below the oven. I can't believe how useful that has been while preparing meals. Different dishes aren't ready at the same time? Drop it in the warming drawer and it stays hot. Want to serve food on a warm plate? Drop a stack in the warming drawer while you cook. It's the simplest thing, but it's really convenient.
