Pretty good toaster oven. We got the B&D counter-top toaster oven to replace an aging GE unit that suffered a broken top burner that could not be repaired. The B&D unit has served excellently for toasting, top browning my Eggs (Benedict) Arnold and baking potatoes. It's also very easy to clean with its front slide out crumb tray. My only criticism is that the dial markings are a bit small for these myopic old eyes, and the "constant-on" timer function isn't labeled. Once one learns the proper dial settings, it's a great product.
Best Basic Toaster Oven. This is a fine basic Toaster Oven for a great price. It's great for toasting, making quesadillas, baking potatoes, broiling meatballs. This is my second Black and Decker Toaster Oven; my first would have lasted many more years had I not clean the inside and ruined the top heating element. This model was is the closest to my previous, smaller, model. this is a good size for a smaller kitchen, as it leaves plenty of counter space in front of the toaster. I have only two nit-picky criticisms, one, there are too many control knobs in my opinion, my previous model did all the same things but had only 2 knobs. and two, the inside arm that moves the rack in-and-out of the oven is too short, if the rack is moved too far out you need to push it back in with either your finger (ouch-hot!) or some other object. I hope they extend the arm further out in their next version so that it will work better!
Product improved over older models. Got my new toaster oven last week to replace an older model and I am pleased with its features. The knobs have been redesigned and are much easier to turn. It even has a removable tray for cleaning up crumbs. This is so much easier than opening the bottom and tilting the oven like my old one. I have to say it still doesn't toast bread as nice as a toaster but I am certainly happy enough with how the toast comes out. One feature that needs addressing yet is the "stay on" feature. It shouldn't be located near the off selection but it is. However since the knobs are easier to turn, I have less worry about going too far and overturning the off cycle.
compact and efficient, excellent value. We like this toaster oven very much. It has all the features we need. We got our daughter one for Christmas. However, the newer model does not have the small hooks attached to the door that pull the rack out part way. This is a very convenient feature and we wonder why it was eliminated.
Save money with this great product. Save money by buying and using this toaster oven? You bet! All too often, we heat up our big oven to roast a small piece of meat, heat a loaf of bread or bake a pie. Rarely do we use the entire oven. This countertop oven preheats quickly, browns and roasts meats nicely, and bakes smaller items perfectly using a lot less energy than our conventional (and even convection) ovens. Oh, and it makes great toast, too! In these days when every penny counts, it only makes sense to use a space and energy efficient product like this!
BEST TOASTER OVEN. I HAVE PURCHASED SEVERAL OF THESE TOASTER OVENS AND HAVE BEEN USING THE SAME ONE FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE SO MANY CHOICES OUT THERE, THIS IS THE BEST IN IT'S CLASS. THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER MODELS BY B&D THAT LOOK SIMILAR, BUT THIS ONE IS THE BEST; PLEASE KEEP THIS DESIGN, IT HAS THE BEST FUNCTIONALITY. THANKS!
