2.0 out of 5 stars 10 inches not 9 inches won't fit my toaster oven1, September 8, 2014
High quality, but this is 10 inches not 9 inches and won't fit my toaster oven that has a pizza "bump" in back and is supposed to bake a 9 inch pizza. See my picture! Posted separately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fits a 9" pizza - but not a 9" pizza pan, September 8, 2014
There is something ironic about a pizza oven that states that it fits a 9" pizza - but won't fit the pan for a 9" pizza!

This is the slickest use of "exact words" in marketing I have seen in a long time. Note that it says it "fits a 9" pizza". Not the pan to hold it!

This comes up because I ordered a 9" pizza pan at the same time - this one: Browne Foodservice 575349 Thermalloy Aluminum Perforated Pizza Pan, 9-Inch

Unfortunately, the pan itself is 10"! I will post pictures to show.

As for toasting, this is naturally not as good as a toaster in terms of evenness of toasting, BUT you can top-toast only (turn it to broil mode) which a toaster can't generally do.

It only has single quartz heating tubes on top and bottom, not doubles like the more expensive toaster ovens, but they work pretty well thanks to them going up extra bright compared to others I've had, and thereby radiating more heat more evenly, even though from a single tube.

This is too short, from top to bottom, to hold a loaf pan. Also, more likely to slightly brown the tops of cookies due to that ultra-bright heating tube. I recommend the Black and Decker with convection heating Black & Decker CTO4500S Perfect Broil Convection Toaster Oven for baking, which works with loaf pans and doesn't singe the top of our baked goods.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't open., September 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Absolutely unusable, couldn't even get them to open - and I've purchased and used many others of same design here on Amazon. I just though $2.99 would get you something that actually works these days.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great start, but then...., September 3, 2014
GREAT start, but went down hill quickly. Good art work. Coming out as a movie, and might be good in that medium.

3.0 out of 5 stars Probably great for fleas, but despite recommendations, not the first choice for head lice, September 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Probably superb for fleas - I would have killed for one the time I lived with a cat lady - but not so good for head lice. It WILL capture and trap any of the wily adults fleeing from this WMD (weapon of mass (louse) destruction) but is woefully inadequate for harvesting the eggs which, if left in place, will later harvest your kids. Again.

For eggs and nits (the Alien-like abandoned egg husks) you want the absolutely incredible "Nit Free Terminator Lice Comb," which is so good that patient daily use "terminated" the entire louse population without ever resorting to chemicals.

4.0 out of 5 stars The "coarse" side is surprisingly effective. Rapal is a better buy when it comes to the "fine," ceramic rods treatment., September 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
4.5 star. MUCH more expensive than the semi-disposable Rapala sharpener also sold by Amazon, BUT the "Coarse Carbide" side doesn't clog, unlike the ceramic rods (coarse or fine) in the Rapala and other competing similar shaped utility sharpeners. Also, the Coarse Carbide side cuts a new edge very quickly (note that I wouldn't use this side on a good pocket knife, it takes off too much metal, but it is superb for inexpensive kitchen knives that have way too much chromium in them).

I use the coarse side very carefully to set up the edge, then one swipe through the ceramic rod, "fine" side to smooth it out a little.

The coarse side is VERY aggressive and will burr your blade if you aren't careful - you will then need to carefully re-swipe once or twice or thrice.

If you like a good tomato cutter, skipping the "fine" side leaves the blade naturally rough enough (microscopically serrated as it were) to bite through the tomato skin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clog quickly, but even viewed as "disposable" much cheaper than professional sharpenings., September 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a good value as a "disposable" sharpener. By the nature of the design - ceramic rods in an inaccessible location - this is good for a limited number of sharpenings, since the pores in the ceramic rods will clog with metal from the blade released during the sharpening process. Classic Crock Sticks and Smiths ceramic rods can be cleaned with scouring powder and a sponge, or with a special "eraser," but as I said the tiny rods in these are inaccessible.

That being said, even using one of these once is cheaper than a single professional sharpening, and I can usually get 4-8 sharpenings out of one of these, or 1 excellent one for your favorite pocket knife.

5.0 out of 5 stars Industrial grade., September 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
High quality, a little big (but my wife is small, a carpet layer might love it). At first I didn't want to buy it, due to its much higher cost than the competition, but I think it is worth the $20. Unlike a garden kneeler, this is designed for daily use for hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best I've found so far, September 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Work as promised - the felt doesn't scratch the floor, and the lip of the caster cup keeps the sofa post from slipping out - unless you lift a corner up. These and other casters or pads are not designed for moving sofas etc. all the time to sweep behind - the felt will pick up grit from normal floor dust and become abrasive over time - but to prevent a nasty hardwood floor gouge from a guest stumbling against a corner of the sofa, you need something like this - trust me, I know from bitter experience.

2.0 out of 5 stars Neither first nor second would fit, September 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Had to replace the first because it wouldn't fit my Cricket Lumia 630, then the second wouldn't fit either. Just a little undersized. I've bought other stuff from Amzer and it makes great cases that have always fit in the past, looks like Nokia changed the specs when they rolled into production, and Amzer hasn't caught up yet. When I have time I will contact Amzer directly because I sure would like one that fits.
