Nice Multi Function Toaster Oven

Summary: This oven, while a little large, does perform as it states. I have never owned a toaster oven myself, but have had experience with the one at work which is a HB as well. I would recommend this to others.
Summary: Admittedly I have not put any research into toaster ovens. But I bought this one yesterday thinking that you could put 6 pieces of bread into a "6 slice oven" and unfortunately 4 fit perfectly.
Summary: A couple of years ago I was doing very well in life. I had a well paying job in financial services and was engaged to be married to my college sweetheart. However, one thing I didn't have was a well-functioning toaster, let alone a highly versatile and productive toaster oven. One morning before heading out to work, I decided to have one of my favourite snacks, a warm toasted bagel with crunchy peanut butter.
Summary: I bought this to replace one that finally wore out. If you are going to use this only as a toaster, I would suggest you just buy a regular toaster as it takes a long time to toast-almost 10 mins. and you have to keep watch it doesn't burn if you use the timer. The same with baking. Also, the directions tell you to unplug after using as it could be a fire hazard. It does the job, but don't rely on the timer.
Summary: Toasts and bakes well. I just toasted an english muffin and it came out fine. (didn't understand review about not toasting). Makes nice, crispy (not burnt) waffles. Oven gets hot fast (less pre-heat time). Compact size (I live in an apartment so that's important). I gave it only 4 stars because it's not too attractive. But, it works well!
Summary: This is my first toaster oven. Wanted something simple, easy to use for baking pizza and rewarming slices. This one serves that purpose. Easy to clean. I use al. foil under slices so there's no clean-up at all.
Summary: I just bought this item and it seems to work fine. The dial toaster function is different from a push button but is is just as handy, plus you can more easily set the toast time to your preference. Another handy feature of the timer is that it can be used as a TIMER ONLY. Just set the temperature to zero and use the timer for up to 30 minutes, a real bonus in a small kitchen with limited counter space.
Summary: After shopping carefully online and off, I bought this item at JC Penney on March 25, 2006. Penney's stated regular price is $69.99, with a sale price of $49.99, the same price Amazon is currently charging. It replaces a 10-year old Black & Decker, primarily because I read several reviews suggesting a dramatic drop in the quality of B&D small kitchen appliances and that Hamilton Beach was performing well.
