How can all of you be talking about...
on December 28, 2005
...the toaster oven I love so much? I'm surprised by all the very negative reviews. I've found this to be one of the most useful tools in my kitchen and can't remember what I did without one. I've had the chance to use many different toaster ovens over the years (at work and in homes) and I never thought I'd purchase one. I ended up wanting one to toast bagels in because I was getting sick of digging them out of the toaster and then one day I saw one of my children digging one out of the toaster with a fork. I went shopping for a toaster oven the very next day. I wanted one that would toast from both sides and one that looked like it wouldn't be the devil to clean.
Now I use my toaster oven for many things, so many more than just toasting a bagel now and then, and I think many of you who have written negative reviews must lack imagination in the ways that you can put this kitchen appliance to pratical use. It's not that hard to operate! Even my children know where to set the dial to get the perfect toast for them.
Then I laugh at the one thing many of you bought it for--the looks!! That's hysterical! It's the one thing that almost made me NOT buy this toaster oven. Now, after 2 years of use, I have gotten used to its looks. It still looks practically new too, since it cleans up so easily.
I like it so much I am looking for another one for my dad for Christmas. That's how I came upon these many negative reviews and had to respond because I find it hard to believe you are talking about the same toaster oven that has changed my negative opinion about toaster ovens into a very positive one.
