Summary: When using the toaster oven it gets very hot on the outside. You have to be careful not to leave the cord too close. Always unplug after use or you can accidentally touch a button or knob and the applliance may get too hot or burn. Because it gets so hot it can burn counter top.
Excerpt: We use this toaster oven every day, about 5 times a day, since sept 2009 and we absolutely love it. Our first one actually died last year (lower element broke), so we bought another of the same as replacement. I have read the negative reviews and have not experienced such dissatisfaction. On my end, both toaster ovens purchased worked perfectly fine - no problem whatsoever.
Excerpt: After having both a cheap black & decker and an expensive krupps toaster oven that were both equally a waste of money, this toaster oven I would unreservedly recommend. This toasts perfectly and lasts. Buy it when it goes on sale for half price.
Excerpt: Bought it because it was on special(99.99$) and my old one , another brand, the coil burned. I can cook anything in it. When I am alone for supper it come in really handy and it doesn't heat up the kitchen, like an oven would do. It shines and looks really good on my counter!
Excerpt: Door, sticks and won't close properly Clock is worthless and gains 30 minutes every 12 hours. Temperature when set for 350 might get to 210 by a cooking thermometer placed inside. This is our second one and I won't even bother to get it replaced again. Not worth its weight in scrap metal. Wouldn't take one if they were free.
Excerpt: This Toaster Oven deserves it's good ratings. It does a decent job of toasting bread. The digital toast setting controls are intuitive and work. The user control panel works as it should. This is a quiet unit. The end of toast cycle has a low soft non intrusive beep. On the Oven settings, the temperature is spot on. The fan (Convection) Setting is great. Not only is the fan near silent, but the even distrubution of the heat is fantastic.
Excerpt: I recieved this toaster oven as a gift. I have not liked it since the first time I used it. I hate that you have to reset it everytime you use the timer or if you want to switch it to the convection feature. I didn't even have it 2 weeks & the oven light stopped working. I contacted the company & it took 2 e-mails before they even got back to me. I asked them how to change the light & they told me that it cannot be changed & it would have to be serviced.
