Summary: OBVIOUSLY-NO QUALITY CONTROL FOR THIS UNIT. THE BOTTOM HEATING ELEMENT DID NOT WORK-OUT OF THE BOX-WHICH MAKES IT A BROILER-NOT A TOASTER OVEN. SENT IT BACK FOR FULL CREDIT. MOST DISSAPOINTING, SINCE THE ONE I WAS REPLACING WAS AN OLDER MODEL DELONGHI TOASTER OVEN.
Summary: Tell seller did their best to make sure we had a good product. I don't like the toaster oven at all. It burns the toast on about 1/2 of the bottom. I would recommend the seller but not the product.
Summary: Spent a long time looking for a toaster. I was tired of all the look alikes. So when I saw this DeLonghi, I knew I liked it just was not sure if it would function and last. Well I can tell you that this is Nothing like an ordinary toaster. Looks and works great. Adds character to your kitchen.
Summary: Please, please, please don't buy this product! How it is still available is beyond me. Our oven (about a year old) got stuck in the "on" position during toasting this morning. We noticed this and so we unplugged it (the only way to turn it off at this point, very dangerous). A couple of minutes later, while unplugged, the glass on the front blew up and shattered all over my kitchen countertop and floor!
Excellent product, well designed and works superbly!

Summary: Excellent product - I was replacing the exact model which lasted me 7 years or so, and I used it daily and often more than once. The only thing that ever broke was one dial button, which they replaced under warranty. I kept the dial buttons from the oven I am replacing, just in case so I have extras, and I only needed to replace because I had used it way beyond any reasonable expectation.
Summary: Delonghi has been the worst company to deal with. Not only did they sell me a hazardous appliance but they will not respond to phone calls or emails regarding warranty. The glass door on this oven exploded while I was cooking chicken nuggets. I only had the oven for 3 months when it exploded. I paid over $80 for it and will never buy another Delonghi product again.
Summary: It's a lot cheaper built than the oven I bought 3 years ago. I bought this as a gift. The oven pan and drip tray are so small and shallow, almost worthless. I should have investigated this further. I probably also would have bought something else. The toast bake control, is really poorly designed and I don't think will last long. Glad I bought the extended warranty.
Summary: I have had and liked DeLonghi toaster ovens in the past and bought this one based on that performance history, plus it's good looks. This model however, takes A CENTURY to toast or broil anything. It has one heating element on the top and one on the bottom, but they more or less ring the outer area of the oven, so there is no coverage over the main center rack space. In short, this toaster oven is TERRIBLE! You can do much better.
