Summary: This was a gift and when i opened it thought the design was nice, but after plugging it in and waiting a few monutes with the oven on 400 I began to smell a wire burning. The outside and back of the oven got so hot it melted its own power cord which was touching the back of oven. The whole outside of this oven is so hot I cant believe they have not recalled it. Terrible around children.....DONT BUY IT.....
Summary: When Mom's old Sunbeam toaster oven bit the dust after several years, I bought her another brand at one of the "big" stores and it was a disaster. When I found this one on ebay - almost identical to the model she had - I jumped on it. And my mother is delighted. She is a senior citizen recovering from two life-threatening illnesses and this little oven is great for her snacks. It bakes biscuits beautifully, makes great cheese toast and rewarms wonderfully too.
Summary: My fiance and I purchased this toaster oven on a whim at a garage sale for $3 and we really couldn't be happier with it. For the price of this toaster oven (even at retail price) you get a great deal. It just so happens the our oven ignitor went out a few days after we purchased this toaster oven, so it became a saving grace. It actually finished off cooking our meal for my sister's birthday, which only baked half way before our oven went out!
Summary: this was a horrible purchase; I have had a toaster oven for over 20 years with no problems (Black & Decker). While visiting my daughter in her new apt., I asked if she'd like a toaster oven. She said sure, I purchased and had it shipped directly to her. Thought the Sunbeam brand was reputable. It has caught fire several times - with no crumbs hanging around the bottom. Of course, by the time I found this out, allotted time to return had expired.
Summary: There is only leg to push it in and out. It catches the tray but won't allow the door to shut when the tray is it in it. Both the rack and the tray are not working. The tray doesn't fit properly in the oven, its too big and catches on the side, it does not slide in and out like its supposed to.
Summary: I love this oven for its compactness and cute appearance. But beware! The minute dial will turn past "off" and the oven will stay on when you think you it is turned off. Sometimes I walk out of the kitchen when I am cooking, but thank God I was in the kitchen, just happened to look inside the toaster and saw flames!! We were seconds away from a big fire. I would not purchase this product, and I plan to contact the company to find out why it has not been recalled.
Summary: Ours broke for no apparent reason. Lasted about six months. Super cheaply made. Designed so it could easily be left permanently on until your house burned down seemingly. Does look kind of cute though.
Summary: We purchased this model after carefully checking out other brands. What a mistake! It browns the top of the bread unevenly while burning the bottom! There is no automatic turn-off if the door is opened and, like several other reviewers, we agree that it is poorly made, cheap construction. Don't buy it!
