Summary: This counter top oven is a nice tool for anyone who like fresh toasted bread og for just heating up stuff. I have even baked bread and it came out perfect. It feels a bit cheap and not of very good quality but it works. I give it three stars for performance only.
Summary: I bought this toaster oven about four years ago and my family of six uses it multiple times daily. Our old one was still in good working condition, just not as pretty anymore so I decided to buy a new shiny one. I am just as happy with it and expect to get another four years out of it.
Summary: We've never had this problem it the Black and Decker toaster but after our last one crapped out after 15 years, and reading the reviews on the Oster and having decent luck with the Oster products in the past, we bought a Countertop Toaster. The complaints about the front door being hot is correct. I'll bet you'll burn yourself at least once or more times with this unit.
Summary: UPDATE: My earlier review (4 stars - 1 off for dying sooner than it should have, but 4 because it withstood daily use and always did a great job) is below. When I thought my toaster oven had died, I started browsing Black Friday sales for a replacement. This only reaffirmed my belief that this toaster oven offers a great set of features at a very fair price. It finally occurred to me to try my toaster again - just to be sure it was really dead.
Summary: I've had this toaster oven for about 5 years now, and have been quite happy with it. I use it about 4 days a week. It's not perfect, but I would recommend it, and would buy it again. I use it mainly for baking. It has a big window that gives a good view of your food. There are 2 rack positions, one in the center and one lower. The included baking pan is enameled and very sturdy. The timer and selectors are mechanical and simple to use.
Summary: just be sure to lower the temp and time then what is suggested on food packaging, this thing heats a smaller space so it cooks things quicker and hotter then your normal kitchen sized oven. once you get down pat the temp and time adjusted to whats on the food boxes its awesome.
