i searched around a lot for a good toaster oven that wasn't too expensive or too big. i didn't want any fancy features, mostly just basic toasting, and oven use. this one is great because i can toast 6 slices with enough space, i can broil steaks, i can bake small dishes or treats. it works almost too good. you have to be careful at first to figure out how powerful it is. we've burnt a couple things cause we thought it would take longer to bake, btu it's way faster, which in the end once you figure it all out IS great. I only gave it 4 stars because of the inability to press one button for the "toast" feature. you just have to guess how much time on the "bake" which you can figure out once you try a few times. i'm very happy with it. if you have limited space it may be too big. it's quite tall which was okay for our kitchen, but it may be too big to fit under a counter/cupboard space. i wouldn't want it to be too close to a cupboard either cause the top gets hot.
