Enjoy grilled favorites all year long with the help of this easy-to-use indoor grill and broiler. The countertop appliance features a nonstick die-cast grill plate with a semi-embedded heating element that distributes heat evenly. Turn the thermostat knob to high, medium, or low heat, then cook up anything from steak, chicken, or hamburgers to fish or grilled-cheese sandwiches on the large 12-1/2-by-9-inch grilling surface. It also provides a professional broiler drawer that allows for two-tier cooking--sear food on the top grill plate, then complete the cooking process in the broiler below. Use both the grill plate and the broiler drawer at the same time for double the grilling capacity. Other highlights include a simple on/off switch, an "on" indicator light, a removable broiler drip tray, cord storage, and a micro-safety switch that automatically turns the unit off if the broil plate needs to be re-positioned. A drain cup for oil and grease and a user manual with recipes come included. The indoor grill measures approximately 20-1/2 by 15-3/5 by 7 inches.

I have used the oven for toasting, baking, keep warm & Panini & was very satisfied with each outcome. My DH really likes the Panini's. The toast takes a little longer than a regular toaster, but to me it is worth the wait. It toasts on both sides, unlike most toaster ovens. All in all, I am very pleased & would recommend. Five Star rating.
I decided to buy a new toaster oven because my old one (not all that old) has push controls that are not always responsive and I wanted the old fashioned knobs. This model has knobs. It also looks good along with my other counter top appliances. I like the panini feature because it's useful for several things - e.g., keeping my tortillas flat when I heat them up. And I like the grilling/broiling tray a lot. One reviewer mentioned that it took 10 minutes for toast. I don't have that problem; in fact, a bit the opposite and I have to be careful I don't "over" toast. I do find some uneven heating. The most annoying thing I've found is that there is no timer for the oven on this model. The toast/panini timers are not suitable for timing something in the oven. I was also surprised to learn that there is no convection feature on the oven. And while the blurbs extoll the size of the oven, I find it a bit on the small side; certainly smaller than my older toaster oven. So while I like the oven, I think it's overpriced considering what it doesn't have; viz.; an oven timer and a convection feature, along with a rather small oven. And the crumb tray has to be removed from the back, necessitating moving the oven. Since my older toaster oven has both features this one is lacking, a larger oven, and a front removal crumb tray (and it was cheaper) I've kept it for baking when I want a convection oven with a timer that shuts off the oven when the time is complete but don't want to use my stove.

Had a DeLonghi toaster/oven for 7 years just replaced it with this oven. Love that it includes the panini option which I've already used several times and saves on an extra appliance. Highly recommend this oven!
After a month of use, I'm growing very attached to this toaster. It took the heating element a few weeks to get up to full capacity, and now it's quite good.
Today, I used the panini element to bake/heat corn tortillas. MMM. Excellent, and much easier and healthier than pan fried. I'm loving our homemade Tex-Mex. I've baked in it (brownies), I've toasted in it, I've made panini sandwiches. My son has baked countless frozen pizzas in it by himself (he's a tween).
It's a bit more than a non-panini toaster, but I find that we do use the top grill and that the integration helps us save space.
After a week of use, the heating element seems to be working better than when we first got it.
I'd have to say it's a pretty good toaster oven now that it toasts better and faster. Give it a week to get into condition before jumping to conclusions about its baking power.
We started out by making panini in this toaster. It was great. Then, we tried toasting bread. . .funny . . .it didn't come out quite right and took a long time. Now, we panini our toast.
I also tried making a frozen pizza. It fits well, but didn't bake as well as our older DeLonghi toaster did.
Overall though, it is a nice space saver for those who like toasted sandwiches, and the toast (when paninied) is beautiful. The look of the toaster is also modern and appealing.
Panini function is kind of cool but just to toast something TAKES FOREVER!!! I feel like I'm cursed when it comes to toaster shopping. I finally decided it would be worth it to spend a lot and get a good one and I'm still completely displeased with my toasting experience. If I had endless counter space I'd keep this for the oven and get a good pop-up toaster for toast. But why can't somebody make a decent toaster oven that does both? WHY?!?
We've had this product just a few days, so I'm not yet able to comment on longevity. I plan to use it for more than toast, but so far we've used it just for toast and bagels. Here's what we love (and could not find among a thorough search of other toaster ovens): - It's VERY easy to toast items. We tend to leave the relevant dial on "Toast" - so it's just a simple twist of another dial to desired toasting result (light, med, or dark). This range is very wide, so a change of 1 or 2 mm does not equate to the difference between perfect toasting and burning the toast. Again, this was the case with the other toaster oven we tried, and seems to be a common pitfall of other brands. Also, the dials are comfortable and easy to grip & move. - It takes a while to toast, which could be a negative for some. For us, it means that we don't end up with burnt toast...even if I'm tending to five other things and happen to leave the toast in the oven for a couple minutes after the bell goes off. This could be annoying for a household of just one or two adults, but in a busy family household, it's great. - The device does not give off a ton of heat like the prior toaster oven we tried (and as many reviews of other models complain about), and the handle poses zero danger of burning oneself. This is especially helpful when older children start making their own toast. - I'd been hoping to find a toaster oven that had all of these qualities and also pulled the tray out upon opening the door. This model does not pull the tray out, but I've been able to slide toast out easily without coming into contact with part of the oven. The wire rack is flat, so just make sure to slide it in with the bars resting on top...that way you won't hit the crossbar when sliding the toast out.Read more ›
