Good Toaster Oven. If you are looking for a reasonably priced toaster oven, i would recommend this one from black and decker. We have used it for grilled cheese and other sandwiches. I was hoping it would be a littler smaller so that I could keep it on the counter space, but while it is small, it isn't something that I want to keep out. I unfortunately have to store it when we are not using it.
I have never had a ... I have never had a toaster oven before. I have used it to make garlic bread and warm up sandwiches. It works fine, but I do think it should have more specific directions on how it works, and/or a recipe book included for some guidance. It took me awhile to figure out how to make the garlic bread the first time, but it was very good..
Works better than expected. I wasn't sure what to expect with this, being my first toaster oven I have owned. I was delightfully surprised at how much you can actually make in this toaster oven. It handles many things that a full size oven can, without throwing a bunch of extra heat into your kitchen. Works great for warming up leftovers, and also frozen dinners. The only complaint I have is the inconsistency between the top and bottom when making toast, but it's not enough for me to not recommend this product. Overall good product, solid construction and design.
I have made several ... I have made several things in the toaster oven all turning out great. This is the first toaster oven I have ever used and was impressed with what I have made so far. Would definitely recommend it. The oven is small. If you have a family bigger than 2 people, I would suggest a bigger oven.
The waffle iron does a ... The waffle iron does a great job cooking waffles. The indicator light is a good judge for when the waffles are ready. I prefer an extra crisp waffle so I leave it in the iron for another minute or so. The only problem I have encountered is the right side hinge pin has broke. I am currently trying to locate a replacement.
One of the best irons I've ever owned. This iron is heavy enough that it made ironing easy without applying much pressure. The display and settings were good and clear. The one problem was that it worked fine during the warranty period but barely made it past two years, although it was never dropped, before the water reservoir began leaking when it was stored properly on its heel. Great while it lasted.
IR1040SC Type 1 Iron. I like this iron. I have two comments to make about design. The line to indicate water fill 'max' is on the left only. I'm lefthanded. When I pour from the left, I can't see the max line. I have the model with red accent - very attractive - but very difficult to see the water line. Otherwise, I think this model is great. Thanks.
GOOD iron BUT.... We love this iron BUT this is the second one we have purchased and they BOTH have lasted just a little over a year. Long enough for warranty to run out. They have both had problems where the cord goes into the body of the iron. The cord/wire breaks there where it pivots going into the iron.
The best Iron I've ever used. As a kid it was my chore, in a family of 13 children to do the ironing. Particularly, I was tasked to iron my Dad's shirts and pants as required for his work day. I didn't mind doing it and quite frankly it was one of the better chores we were expected to do in a rather large family, dishes being one of the worst. However, it did pay in future through my military career considering we needed to stand inspections and formations and I recieved payment from some of the guys to iron their uniforms as well as my own. I'm now in my mid-fifties and have had several irons over those many years but none that compare to this one. My kids got it for me on my last birthday and I do use it every day for either myself, one of the kids, and even my wife who never did like to iron. It heats very quickly, it has steam on demand no matter what temperature you set and it usually presses on the first pass. It has the right weight ratio and a very good range of temperature setting to handle new and older clothing materials. I have not been solicited for this opinion but I find very few products that I can rave about and this is one I'm proud to go on the record to endorse.
Great iron! We got this iron about 4 years ago and it performs wonderfully. My wife says this is the best iron she has ever used and even with my limited experience ironing I have similar thoughts. Good weight, good digital and mechanical controls, good features and good build quality. The iron is heavy enough to actually do the work of pressing the clothes and you have to do is push it back and forth while the ironing board fights with gravity. My wife has very small hands (her gloves look like they belong to an 8 year old girl) and she has no problems using it. After 4 years of use I am only getting around to cleaning it now for the first time (must be the soft water in Toronto to go along with our soft heads). I went to the B&D site to see if they had the manual in PDF format for the iron so that I could clean the steam vents properly and they did! Upon finding the manual, I felt compelled to write this review after reading all the less than sterling experiences folks have had with this beastie; not to challenge their feedback at all but to offer that at least one user has had better luck. It may be that quality has been uneven on the production line for this model, how much I could not possible say, and that either we have been lucky or they have been unlucky; or both.
