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.
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 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.

Got this at Walmart. It has two levels, but I haven't used the lower one. The top toasts just two sides, just in the middle. It is dangerous to take the toast out... Read morePublished on January 31, 2014 by IDMA
