My parents finally approve of a toaster oven! My parents have been complaining about the performance of toaster ovens for 40 years, since I was a child. I read the reviews of others online and ordered mom and dad this toaster oven and they love it. The very first I have ever seen repeated smiles from ear to ear; they have real bragging rights. The whole family is experiencing "toaster envy". Finally they have given their seal of approval. They love the speed, even toasting, inside light, slim width yet roomy inside size and ease of use. Unlike the past toasters it does it does not blow the fuse when they are running other appliances in the kitchen - Happy, happy, happy!
Best toaster oven going for 12 years +. We bought one of these about 12 years ago and it was wonderful. Then Panasonic stopped selling it, but after several years they returned with a slightly modified model at a higher cost. We bought it for my mother in law's apartment, and this is her primary cooking element. Both ovens have been working flawlessly
the best and only 9" square Toaster Oven. The best Toaster Oven on the Market. The only one that is 9" square. Perfect for 4 pieces of bread. Easy to operate. Platinum finish. Quality constructed. Do not ever change this size. When this one wares out, it's this one I want to buy again. No other. Thank You for engineering correctly. Uses just the right amount of counter space and easy to clean. Love it!
The best toaster oven on the market. I tried two other well-known brands and returned them both. I found this one on the internet and ordered directly from Panasonic. It arrived quickly and I have been enjoying it ever since. I love the interior light and the perfect way it operates. I have recommended it to all my friends. My only suggestion would be to have an automatic shut off.
Roll reheat & pizza features. Roll reheat is excellent for reheat sweet roll without getting burn top. Using roll reheat 2 or 3 times for sweet roll brings roll back to life, just like from fresh oven. Frozen pizza feature give fresh oven bake pizza taste. I own this oven for more than 10 years. It was discontinued for sometimes. It comes back within the last couple years. I am glad to see Panasonic makes it available again. I just bought two for my sons. Everyone has one for good enjoyment of day old bakery sweet roll.
Some bad, but a lot of good. Overall the build quality seems a bit flimsy for a toaster oven in this price range. Thin gauge metal, throughout with mediocre plating. Painted exterior rather than stainless. Weak looking wire rack and crumb tray. But it sounds like folks have been using it for years with no problems, so time will tell. It does a terrific job of toasting bread. More even browning than any of my dedicated toasters. It also does a great job of reheating rolls, sandwiches, chicken pieces, pizza, etc. And since it doesn't need pre-heating, you can have a snack in half the time it takes with a full sized oven. And it doesn't turn the food into a rubbery consistency as does a microwave. Fairly easy to clean, and easy to use once you get used to it. One note--only cook foods that are designed to be heated in an oven. I tried hash brown pattys and if failed dismally to brown them. Then I looked at the directions on the package and discovered that they should only be pan fried. My bad. Another brand heated up and browned just fine.
