The toaster oven is difficult to clean and the shelf is not easy to come out. Also, directions say to move the nob to 10 to start heating but the nob gets stuck and does not turn back to desired time. It works very nicely and toasts great. The difficulty in turning the nob was the reason I gave it two stars.
The toast-r oven was our source of heat for food for the last 10 days of using our newly occupied cottage. The range and microwave were late for installation and the toast-r oven did the job for us. Very happy to have had it.

The setting for 'toast' leaves you guessing, as there is no 'light, medium, dark' indicator. You need to experiment, which is a waste of time not available in the morning rush. I kept the unit, but would have passed had I known in advance.
Great price and good toaster. Would have rated it Excellent except once the timer is set you cannot cancel by turning the knob to off. It has to time itself out. That is a problem because my toaster is in a "garage cabinet" and I would like to shut the door when finished toasting. Now I have to wait until it's timed out and cooled off. But great for the price since I do not make toast that often.
After 12 years my old Black and Decker wore out. I ordered this one and although it looks nice and works great, you have to turn a dial timer every time to make toast. It's a pain and will probably quit working quickly. If you use it as an oven, you have to remember to set the temperature dial back to 450 so when you toast, it works, also the timer only goes for 30 minutes.
I read a lot of reviews about this product and saw many reviews about the timer knob being hard to turn. I thought, "How hard could they be to turn?" so I ordered it. They were so difficult that I had to use a rubber jar opener pad to turn the knob. I was so disappointed! To make toast, you turn the timer past 10 then back to desired toast setting. It was almost impossible. Then, unfortunately, the timer didn't work. It just stayed on. I'm sure that problem was a defect in the product I received but I planned on returning it anyhow since the knob was so hard to turn. Overstock's wonderful customer service helped me with everything. This oven is made by a good company so I took a chance. I'm sad to say I was disappointed.
