Top customer reviews
The construction seems very sturdy and while the sides and top do heat up a bit (which the instruction manual warns about) it's not nearly as bad as I was expecting based on some of the reviews on here, nor have I ever found the handle to be hot at all. As long as you make sure there's a couple inches of clearance around it I don't think the heat should be an issue during normal use. Now obviously if you're planning to leave it on for hours at a time then it will likely heat up more, but what would you expect from a $60 toaster? It's obviously not a full replacement for a traditional oven, nor does it claim to be.
Also, I wanted to clarify that this toaster oven most certainly DOES turn off on its own if you turn the knob past 20 minutes before setting it to the desired time. It is kind of a silly quirk but given that that instruction is printed not only in the owner's manual but also on the unit itself next to the timer, people really only have themselves to blame if they don't follow it.
All in all, I've found this product to be more than a match for my small-scale toasting and baking needs and I am very happy with my purchase. It's great to be able to make food without having to turn on my big energy-hogging oven, especially during the summer. The one thing I wish was different is that the timer knob is only marked every 10 minutes - it would be nice if it at least had 5-minute marks.
**Edit: It's been 3 years since I bought this toaster oven and it's still going strong. As it's gotten older it's started to take longer to heat up which can be annoying, but it's still useful and has never had any mechanical problems**
The convection blower is from one side of the oven so I felt the need to turn the food at least once for even cooking. Toast needed to be turned over to toast both sides evenly otherwise one side was nicely browned but the other side barely toasted. That's one thing I was hoping to improve on from my older toaster oven.
I tried baking 4 of my favorite Morning Star veggie burgers in this oven. I've always done them in the oven although cooking directions on the package are for microwave or grilling. I preheated to 400, as I always do with my stove oven, and put them in to bake for 15 or 20 mins (can't remember which). They didn't reached the required internal temp of 160 degrees...actually they still felt cool in the center. I had to bake them for another 15 mins plus I felt the need to cover them so they didn't dry out from the convection blower. Perhaps using the toaster option would have been better. For me it would have been quicker and easier, preheat time and all, to do it the way I always do in my stove oven. I also tried baking a chicken breast which I would have been happier with if baked in the oven.
I'll note that the drip/baking pan and broiler rack are rather flimsy aluminum but I guess most are these days. Aside from that, the oven seems to be well built, sturdy, and it's a nice looking appliance. All and all this oven is not for me. I think it's a matter of personal preference. Some won't be bothered by the hot exterior. They'll get used to making perfect toast after a little experimentation. After baking various dishes a few times, they'll learn the ins and outs of baking with convection and might love this oven. I can't say it's a bad item..thus the 3 stars. I can only say it's just not my cup of tea so I'm sticking with a conventional toaster oven. I very much appreciate Amazon's hassle free handling of my return and quick refund.
The quality and appearance are great for the price. So far we've only used it for toasting and it does a good job, better for two pieces at a time but ok for four, it just browns a little more on the edges closest to the heating elements, rotate 'em halfway through the cycle and they're uniformly browned.
I'd only deduct minor points for two things ...... It would be nice to have a light inside. It would be nice if the rack didn't tilt down when you pulled it out but that's not a kill factor either.
I give it 4 stars because 5 is perfect, this isn't perfect but it's real close! We like it a lot, especially for the price. If you buy it do yourself a favor and set it up outside to burn it in, it does smoke a little and throws off enough fumes to smell up your kitchen the first time you use it.
