Summary: My old Black & Decker toaster oven gave up the ghost recently after about 25 years of dedicated service. Now that I'm 25 years older, I figured I'd splurge a bit and get a fancier replacement; if I don't cook too much artery-clogging food in it, I might enjoy the new one another 25 years.
Summary: This toaster does everything well. I have been using it for over a month with none of the problems that I have seen some complaints about. The broiler works great for pizza or bagels. The toast function works great and toasts both sides of the bread.
Summary: We've had this toaster before and everything about the size and performance fit very well with our family. It's rather large and takes up a lot of counter space but it can hold a tremendous amount of food.
Summary: After having a small cheap toaster oven, the Krups is a dream. It toasts evenly and heats quickly. The extra size allows larger dishes, yet the exterior is not overwhelmingly large. It doesn't take much more room. It even came with a pair of tongs to retrieve hot items which the kids love.
High quality appliance that performs exceptionally well
4 November 2008
Summary: I was hesitant at first to invest in a toaster oven at this price point, but I can honestly say it's worth every penny. It does everything well. My biggest complaint with other toasters is that they don't adjust to being cold or hot at the start of a toast cycle. Not this one.
Summary: This is quality equipment, it has a timer, convection, toaster, etc.. It is so precise for baking. A little expensive but well worth it, if you use everyday, you'll come out way ahead, not to mention the daily pleasure every time you use it. Hope this help...
