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.
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: 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.
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.
