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!
Donâ€™t wash in Dishwasher. This unit does a nice job of cooking rice, but I donâ€™t recommend putting any parts in the dishwasher to be cleaned. The bowl will oxidize since it is Aluminum and the lid handle will fall apart due to the heat in drying the dishes in the dishwasher. Wash both parts by hand and enjoy buying cheaper rice to feed your family.
Love it! We lived over seas and bought our first rice cooker (it was this same brand and everything). When we moved home we had to leave it behind but immediately went out and bought ourselves the same one! We just like it that much. It has been perfect for the two of us and makes enough if someone visits. I would highly recommend one !!!
Awesome, easy & fast! I've been looking for this kind of rice cooker for a long time. As we all know, microwave food is not good for health, may cause cancer. Therefore, I was trying to search around the world to look for this rice cooker. It works perfectly fine and I can steam my food at the same time when I cook the rice. It only takes 15 mins and I can have nice and warm lunch. I use this at work. Except the only thing is do not leave it in the cooker for too long, because the rice will get burn a little bit; not a big deal. Good buy!
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!
Best Toaster Oven EVER at this price point. I can't say enough about this toaster oven. Having owned several different brands over the years, this is BY FAR the best I've ever had. The design is wonderful from an engineering standpoint in that there are no traditional heating elements. Why is this a plus? Traditional heating elements will eventually build up resistance as evidenced by having to run your older toaster through two or more cycles to make toast when it took only one cycle when new. You'll never have that problem with the Flash Express because it essentially uses high intensity light bulbs to toast and cook. If a bulb should ever burn out you simply replace it. No tools or instructions are needed and no disassembly is required. With the traditional heating element design, you throw the toaster/toaster oven out when it gets "tired" but your Panasonic can be re-born with a simple bulb change. I should mention that I still own my original FlashExpress as well and after about 7 years, I have never had a bulb need replacing so it is one durable appliance. I like that there is no need for pre-heating so by the time your old toaster oven is pre-heated, your meal is almost done with the FlashExpress. I liked it so much that I bought one for my Mom who is a retired cook. She goes through toaster ovens almost yearly because she has the entire family to her home (20-30 people) every Sunday for either brunch or dinner. Let's just say she pretty much requires commercial quality and this Panasonic delivers. She too, has said this is by far the best toaster oven she has ever owned and she's in her 80's so you can imagine how many she's sent to the scrap pile in her time. If you're thinking of buying one, do not hesitate!
