Does "OK" as an oven, but as a toaster it's just a ridiculously dumb design. The tray is too close to the heating coil on the bottom, it burns the bottom of anything you try to toast. If you try to put something tall in, the top will get burned as well.

There are 2 spots you can put the tray in, one so close to the top it'll burn the top, and the other too close to the bottom. I bet it would work just fine for bread had they made it so you could put the tray in between the 2 spots but it's poorly designed.

The only thing you can do is dial down the temperature setting to near 350 and keep moving your toast around, the actual toast setting just completely burns a stripe in the middle of everything.

For its super-low price, you'd think you can't go wrong with this toaster oven. But once you've used it a few times you'll wish you had bought another one.

Unlike a lot of other toaster ovens which have 4 heating elements, this one has only two - one on top, one on bottom. This causes the heat to be concentrated near the elements, and food that is close to them will often burn or scorch. Avoiding burning is a constant challenge. Lesson learned: when buying a toaster oven, make sure it has at least 4 heating elements.

This oven consumes 1000W of power - which is less than most others, so it cooks a bit slower - which I wouldn't mind if it didn't scorch the food. But the timer and thermostat work well. It's super-small so doesn't take up much space on the countertop. But be careful because the sides and top get very hot.

This must be a completely different model than the previous one I bought at Wal-mart two years ago (lowest option, 20$ price) as this one fails to heat nearly as hot as mine did. Maybe the outlets at my new house don't supply enough wattage or something, but I've tried two separate outlets now and the toaster oven keeps turning on and off to stay at a heat that is no where near 400, but possibly 300 degrees.

Now for toast, they are right, you have to put it on a low level and get light toast or it will burn that toast. This toaster bakes biscuits though. Also can make a little pan of corn bread

This is not very very large, but it is a very nice size. I am going to try to bake chicken in it and a steak. I will let you know . I have had it for 6 months and toast, its ok, but the oven part is great. Another thing you could do is cook the toast on the oven setting.

Do not put the oven on high cook cause it will not cook the center.

Its not perfect, but if you on a budget and its hot as crazy outside, then this will work for small meals.

Update: I made a steak in it, it was a hassle though but I like my steak well down, and it was pretty good.

This is a no-frills, affordable toaster oven that does the job! The settings are easy and the oven heats up quickly. I've made a variety of foods from this oven- roasted vegetables, baked fish, toast, and much more! This oven really makes my life much easier when I am lazy to cook. Most of the time it heats pretty evenly and I haven't had any problems with unevenly heated toast. One time that I did notice uneven baking though, was when I tried to bake chocolate chip cookies and I noticed that some parts of the cookies were more brown than others. I wouldn't use this oven for serious baking, but for simple daily use I really love this oven. Surprisingly, this oven works way better than my old Black & Decker oven that cost more than this one.

Ughhhhh. I got this as a birthday gift from my mother-in-law and it's TERRIBLE. I can't return it because it will hurt her feelings but this thing is a total piece of junk. The temperature adjustment is not terribly precise and the door won't close all the way!! I guess that explains the temperature adjustment issue. But even when I attempted to hold it shut, the temperature just didn't work like it should. At first I thought it was something I was doing wrong but nope. The door on the thing is just junky. It's about half an inch off and I tried to adjust it but it doesn't fix. It's a total hazard!!! This thing also has an in accurate timer. I don't know if I got a flawed one, but they really need to do some quality control on their toaster ovens. This thing is total garbage.
