Summary: I was looking for a small appliance that could toast thick slices of bread and bagels, but I also needed to warm or toast muffins, sandwiches, and other small items. After reading the reviews on Amazon, I was able to decide that this was exactly what I was looking for. True, you cannot put anything very high in the oven or it will burn the top of it, but after I got used to using it, all was fine.
Summary: I seriously considered to get this product, but what stopped me was the high shipping prize by Target = $10.88! So, I bought the Hamilton Beach 22708H Toastation instead, which has the same prize of $37.88, but free shipping! That's a 30% difference in prize, and I could not find any difference in the quality. Just the design is slightly different, probably manufactured exclusively for Target.
Fine Value, but you might be disappointed if you are downgrading

Summary: I had a fancier toaster oven from Delonghi that I loved and used daily for almost 9 years. I also paid more three times more for it. So for a third of that price, I got this toaster and think it is a good value. Toasts bagels and breads pretty quickly, and evenly enough. I think it might even be faster than my old one, which is nice when you're running late like I always seem to be.
Summary: I bought this toaster oven despite some polarized reviews on various sites. I wanted a SMALL toaster oven. I listed Pros and Cons below, but let me explain. The packaging and handling was rough on this little toaster, as it had a dent. The box was sealed by manufacturer, but it looked like it was originally handled with very little care. No problem, the dent popped out and it looks normal now. The controls are very simple. It toasted quickly.
Summary: Fantastic time saver for parents of young cooks. While I was concerned about my 5th grader using the large gas oven to cook chicken nuggets and french fries, this new toaster/oven is just her size. The baking tray holds just the right amount for her and her six year old sister. The tray is not heavy and bulky like conventional cookie sheets and thus less chance of burning herself. I only wish there was a timer on the toaster/oven.
Summary: I bought this toaster about a week ago after searching hard for the smallest toaster oven I could find that simply does the "classic" things (toast /reheat/ fish sticks etc., not trying to actually cook a meal) and I am quite happy with it. At first I burnt the tops of a couple things I was heating, like a mini pizza, but I realized it simply cooked quicker than my old toaster oven and needed less time. That's a GOOD thing. The toast element is WONDERFUL.
Summary: Really like this toaster. Toast slot fits big bagels/slices of bread and does a great job. My only gripe is with the height of the inside of the oven. If ONLY they added another inch or two! Food baking in the oven tends to be too close to the heating element, overcooking the top. Tried to bake with 2 ramekins and the top came out a little burnt. Other than that, this is a great toaster. Cute, doesn't take up to much room and simple to use.
Toasts, bakes, seems to have solved some eariler model design problems

Summary: After having an expensive toaster that I loved go bad on me (a Braun) and finding out that Braun no longer will be selling them so they could not replace it, I had to find one that would do the job as well. The Toastation had the same size single slot as the Braun, so I figured I would try it. While it does not toast quite as evenly as the Braun did, it is reasonably close.
