We had a DeLonghi convection toaster oven for almost 10 years before I accidentally broke a heating element on it. We had a good experience with that unit but I did a LOT of research before picking this unit. Here are the pros/cons we have found with this unit after using it daily for 2 weeks: Pros: - Love the combo of digital settings but easy-to-use and intuitive knob to select the function & temperature. It's not 1-click fully digitized like some models but very easy. - Interior light really useful for baking. - Toast settings work great, was done perfectly time after time. - Unit is compact/not too tall but has plenty of space on interior, well-designed. - Looks great & matches other stainless steel appliances. - Oven timer & smart cookie functions also work really well after getting a feel for them - probably gets things done a bit faster than per recipes, not uncommon for convection ovens. - We love the blue digital display & clock - our microwave is integrated into our stove as a drawer so the clock is not visible unless you're standing over the stove. The clock on this unit can be read easily from 15-20 feet away. - Trays slide in & out easily, including the bottom crumb tray. - Included pans and racks are high quality, don't feel flimsy. Have seen reviews for other brands where this is an issue. - Auto shut-off is a godsend for my wife, who has a real talent for burning food. Sorry honey! :-) Cons: - It does take longer to toast things than I would have expected, 4 to 5 minutes vs. maybe 3 minutes with our previous one. But it comes out so perfect I don't mind, especially since it's "set & forget". - The door spring is a bit too strong, it really snaps shut with a bang if you don't gently close it. Summary: When I bought this unit I was wondering whether the price point would provide value - it was $30-40 more than similar ovens with a few less features (like auto shutoff and interior light) but also $50 less than some of the top of line units from other brands. Very happy with this decision, definitely got a lot more than we would have with a $100 option. It feels like we bought top of the line & paid less.

My teenage boys and I were very impressed when this arrived. It's very attractive, and the black dial setting even has a blue LED type light that glows when in use. I love this because my refrigerator has the same blue in its LED screen! I couldn't be happier with this product and it was a great price too.
