I bought this Black & Decker toaster oven to replace a very similar one that was finally worn out. I am very pleased with this oven. It's a regular toaster oven (not convection) and heats up quickly. It's roomy inside because it has the same dimensions as my old one. The knobs are easy to turn and it doesn't burn food. I have used it to toast English muffins and regular bread so far, but plan to use it to bake items and warm up food in the near future. The outside dimensions are approximately 17 inches ( across the back) x 16 1-2 inches across the top x 9 1/2 inches from the bottom to the top. It measures about just smidge over 11 inches from the back of the unit to the front. The only slight disappointment is the baking pan and broiler that came with this toaster oven are much lighter than the ones that came with my Black & Decker ******* that was bought it in 2006 before companies began to economize like they have in recent years. The good news is that my baking & broiler pans from the ******* fit perfectly inside this unit, so I will definitely hang onto them. If you have you are looking to replace the ****** model, it has been long been discontinued. This model actually replaced the one I had, but this was the only place I could find this model. It is not even available from ******. I think it's a great toaster oven for the money and am very pleased!
