I'm not a newbie when it comes to toaster ovens. Both my parents worked and retired from Black and Decker and of course, we had B&D's "new fangled" toaster oven back in the 60's. With their employee discount, my Mom always had the current model - passing the rest down to their RV, the "rec room" as well as my brother, me and assorted friends and relatives. So I am more than familiar with toaster ovens - and that's all I wanted - a toaster oven and I wanted it to fit in my appliance garage which is 14" deep. The Hamilton Beach Easy-Reach Toaster Oven filled all my wants and needs.
The measurements have been stated in other reviews, however I measured the actual baking rack and it is 9 1/8" wide and 10 7/8" deep. Hopefully the included photos will provide additional information.
1. The oven fits perfectly in the appliance garage. (14" deep by 34" wide with door closed)
2. Of course, the baking rack does not pull out automatically when the door is opened, however you can see that I have pulled the rack out and it is still secure within the oven.
3. As for the interior BAKING space, I have stacked two k-cups on the baking pan and there is still plenty of space. (I didn't measure because I am a visual person and this works better in my opinion)
4. Included is also a photo of the oven while on. You can see the heating elements and what I like is that they are protected by a metal "shroud" not just on the area where food might spatter on them, but also on the other side which means they are fully protected if something does spill - it will not spill on the heating element so clean up will be easy.
5. Several reviews have mentioned that the temperatures and times are hard to read on the knobs. I have tried to get a clear photo, however, the overhead kitchen light creates a glare over the top knob. What you will actually see is that the top knob indicators will be as clear as the bottom knob. As for complaints that temps are hard to set.......Geez, if you want to make toast - turn the top knob all the way to the right and set the indicator ON THE PICTURE OF A PIECE OF TOAST then turn the lower knob to the right to THE PICTURES OF A LIGHT TOAST OR DARK TOAST.
6. Several reviews have mentioned that the door has a gap on the side. What I did was "tweak" the lower edge of the door and now there is no gap. Just use a little "American Ingenuity" to make a very minor adjustment.
7. So far the oven has toasted PERFECT toast and bagels, and roasted a pan of yummy potatoes that were perfectly browned. The oven heats up like my other toaster ovens did, I didn't get much older waiting for my toast!
8. Timer Ticking: For Pete's Sake - it TICKS while operating and it also DINGS when it's finished. I guess at 63 years old, my hearing is not as sensitive as some, but then again I don't have my head on the counter top in front of the toaster, either!
9. The best thing is the way the toaster door opens. When opened, it is totally out of the way which allows for the actual top of the toaster to be recessed somewhat so that the top of your hand doesn't get burned if you reach in. To me, this is a major improvement in the actual design of toaster ovens and a great design if the toaster oven needs to set on a shelf.
10. By the way, the "Chef's Planet 401 Nonstick Toaster Oven Liner" sold by Amazon fits perfectly on the pull out crumb tray with no cutting or sizing and the crumb tray pulls out easily for cleaning.
Long story short: My husband says I over researched and over thought this purchase and about drove him crazy. I feel that I made the best purchase that fit my wants and needs, and does exactly what a toaster oven should do and what the manufacturer featured in it's ad/product description says it will do.
This toaster will easily fit four slices of bread. I toasted two slices of rye bread and the toast came out fantastic; crisp and dry the way rye bread usually toasts. It was toasted evenly on both sides except that the bottom sides of the bread had the rack lines, which is expected. It actually toasted better than any actual toaster I've ever owned and I always disliked using a toaster oven to toast bread.
Below are the PROS and CONS from my perspective.
It has a small footprint.
The top comes off easily for washing.
The unit's roll top makes it easy to reach what is cooking.
The price is reasonable in my opinion.
It toasts very well.
It comes with a crumb tray, rack, and baking pan that can be easily removed and cleaned.
A broiling option is available by using the high rack position in the oven and selecting the broil feature.
The dials use mechanical timing so for the duration of the toasting cycle, there's a ticking sound from the timer.
The timer always has to be rotated beyond 10 minutes and then turned back to the time desired if the cooking, broiling, or toasting time is less than 10 minutes.
The timer has a maximum capacity of 30 minutes so if what's being cooked requires a longer time, it will have to be set two or three times during the cooking process.
The silver "paint" on the dial faceplate is slightly bubbled on the unit I received for review.
In summary, I think this is a great buy for those who need a toaster oven for small jobs or do not have much kitchen space. It's also cute, squat, and retro looking.
