Thought the toaster oven was small when it arrived. A"nd the reason for that is: I had never had nor used a toaster oven before and my lst roommate brought one into the ohouse. I don't know what brand it was, but we came to love it and used it all the time. Then my roommie moved out and took her toaster oven with her. I wanted to replace it, and did it via O.com, which never fails to satisfy.
So, not buying it in person was difficult to judge, and it is smaller, but is more than adequate for our needs. The only thing I miss is the slide out tray for easy cleaning, loved that feature and miss it in this one.
The oven has a nice look, but as we've often heard, looks aren't everything. The first thing I attempted to bake was a potato, which called for an hour at 450 degrees. Bingo! The timer is mechanical with a max of FIFTEEN MINUTES! This means you have to be paying attention & run back to the kitchen 3 times to wind the timer back up to continue the cooking process.
The timer itself sounds like one of those old fashioned wind up alarm clocks that ticks loud enough to be very annoying. Since I bought the oven mainly to keep from having to use the full size one for smaller items, I am quite disappointed.
Was looking to replace my ugly black 2-slice toaster and came across this FIND! The white matches my kitchen, the ability to toast 4-slices meets my growing family's demands, the size doesnt take up much space at all, the oven feature is awesome for little snacks without warming my whole oven, the benefits go on... and all for the right price. I just wish I found this toasteroven sooner. It's one of the best finds from OverStock.com. No complaints here.
Toasts & bakes well - and quickly! Some of these toasters take so long to toast that you have to start toasting before the eggs are even out of the refrigerator. Not so with this one! It is quick & efficient. My only negative comment is that it is smaller than I expected. I guess I should have looked at the measurements before ordering. But the product works well & I am satisfied with it's performance. I also wanted a white toaster oven for my white kitchen - it blends well.
This toaster oven is very small, so it is good that it dose not take up much counter space. I would not have bought it if I had more room.
It just toasts and broil as indicated, so if one want one that also bakes this is not the one. It puts out a lot of heat, I guess they all do.
