I was first introduced to the Cuisinart from a friend. She highly recommended this particular model. When I decided to purchase another toaster oven that I could use for more than just toast, I purchased another brand, because of the price. Well needless to say, you get what you pay for. I returned the other one immediately, because not only was it really big, but it did not have the features the Cuisinart has. I took my friends advice and decided to purchase the Cuisinart. I really love this oven! I use it instead of my large oven when I am cooking for just me and my husband. I not only use it for toast, but for baking cornbread, biscuits, casseroles, & pizzas. It may not be a big deal to some people for the oven to let you know when it has reached the desired temperature, but it is important to me and the Cusinart does just that. It doesn't take long for the oven to reach the desired temperature. That was another negative thing about the other oven I returned. It took a long time to get hot. The Cuisinart is very easy to use. I really love my Cuisinart and highly recommend it!
I gave this oven to my daughter for a gift and she commented on loving the controls; easy to see and use. The size fit perfectly in the space she has, meaning it serves her purposes without taking up a lot of room.

This is my first review for overstock.com. I received this toaster 4 days after ordering. Although it says refurbished, upon opening the box, I do not see any visual defects. We toasted bread the second morning. The toast was wonderful, crispy outside but still moist inside. I have also made some BBQ meat with this oven, it cooks faster than my big oven. With no sales tax and $12 cheaper than my local *****, I think this is a great buy.
