Would not buy this if I had to do over again.

Summary: Thought that this was a great idea. However, the toaster doesn't toast the bread evenly. The edges burn no matter what you set the toaster on, rather disappointed. The toaster was the main reason I bought this, oven was a bonus.
Summary: It is not an great toaster nor a great toaster oven. I needed something I could easily lift in and out of a cupboard as I did not want to keep the appliance on my countertop. If I were willing to keep it out all the time I'd choose a larger model. Ho ... wever, it doesworks reasonably well and as it is a very good compromise of my needs I am thrilled with this appliance.
Summary: This is a great small appliance to own because it performs multiple functions yet takes up a small space. We do line the bottom tray with foil for easy cleanup. We've had one in our kitchen for several years now and just bought a second one for our camper trailer.
Summary: Although this is a good idea, there are a lot of practical shortcomings to this toaster oven. Firstly, the absence of a timer on the oven function is a big mistake. Secondly, the oven itself is so small that it is impossible to even heat french bread without singing the top. This makes the item unusable as anything other than a toaster. The toaster function is only adequate. i.e. anything other than a standard piece of toast or a bagel gets stuck in the toaster opening.
