Excellent toaster! Bought this for my wife. At first, very hesitant because of infrared. After trying several different types of toast, bagels, frozen, non-frozen, she is extremely happy at how well it cooks. I think most reviewers make a judgment on the surface of the toast but she is happy that the inside of the toast is nicely cooked and not mushy. As for the size, she hates big toaster oven. This one is the most compact out there that still toast 4 toasts.
An excellent toaster oven. With a nearly idiot proof control panel you'll find it's toaster is better than your old pop-up type, faster too. The oven performs flawlessly. I couldn't imagine spending twice as much for other brands or lesser amounts and be frustrated again. Thanks Panasonic, you nailed it.
Love it now, was not sure at first. Toaster came delivered double boxed and perfect condition. Read directions and toasted my first bagel in it and it did not toast the top, even with the dark setting. After a couple of bagels and english muffins I was disappointed. Then my mother used the included tray to toast a bagel and it came out perfect, I had been placing them in the toaster but not on the tray, just like i always have with prior toasters. So, problem solved, bagel on the tray on default setting and I am extremely happy with this little toaster. It seems to need the tray where other regular toasters do not, who knew. I think its perfect size for us and we love it.
Little Dynamo! Took a chance after seeing the love so many had for this toaster oven online. I figured if folks were looking for parts, it must be good! lol It doesn't disappoint! As long as you aren't trying to replace your full size oven, this is the ticket. Everything, from toast to cookies, leftover pizza slices to waffles, comes out perfectly crisp on the outside and moist & steamy inside. Also, it looks so cool! Like a robot I saw on a cartoon movie. ;) Buy it! You won't be sorry!
Best toaster oven. This is our third FlashXpress. The first was taken out a few years back by a huge power surge during a hurricane. The replacement only lasted a couple years, and we had an annoying problem with the power button until one of the heating elements partly died. Hopefully this new one will last as long as our first one did. Otherwise, we've found these units to work extraordinarily well. They toast evenly almost end to end. It's better at reheating rolls, soft pretzels, and pizza than anything else we know. They're great for frozen waffles and egg rolls. Cooking times are dramatically reduced because there's no need to preheat. In short, it's the best toaster / mini oven we've ever used.
