I have been cooking for about 50 yrs. . Once toaster ovens first came out I owned one. Had many in my time. This is the best I have ever used (that is not a commercial one) . I have had it for about 8 months now . Use it everyday from baking to broiling and even making Pizza. Never had a problem with it . Controls are easy to use and see. The best part is it is easy to clean. From burnt on cheese from that dripping pizza to grease from broiling. Whatever the finish is , it's great. Just a well make item. If you need an everyday toaster over this is it.
the slots for the racks are higher than the older model Kenmore toaster oven. This one cannot hold a chicken leg or a piece of meat. It touches the top of the oven. Baking is impossible. really a shame. It looks good. Just cannot work as an oven making it useless for me. A good example of clueless about what made Sears great!
All of my home appliances are Kenmore products and I am pleased with them all. Since my old toaster had stopped working, I needed to buy a new one, and honestly I couldn't find anything better than a 6-slice convection Kenmore toaster. I am as pleased with the toaster as I have been with all other Kenmore stuffs I have. Thank you for making them.
Our toaster oven worked well for 4-5 months then one day the middle button which controls bake time and temperature quit working. I still use it for baking just have to be ingenious by using the other controls. I can use roast for 60 minutes 350o or use Pizza for 400F and just keep renewing after the time lapses. I figure it would cost too much to replace the one control.
Easy to clean . Doesn't make house hot in the summer like regular stove and easier for my teenagers to use
I've owned this toaster oven for a few years now and it's still going strong. We use it everyday.
Do not purchase this item. The wiring inside burned up 21 months after purchase, still within the warranty period. They want to send me the exact same model AND charge me S&H for it. This model will not be in my house again -- it could have caused a fire.
This toaster oven I'd perfect. It has a great high end look and looks amazing in the kitchen. I love the bright red color and it cooks perfectly. Now I don't have to use my oven for simple side dishes
This product cooks food fine...no issues with that. The only issue I have is that the outside of the machine gets super hot. My boyfriend gave himself a nice burn on the finger. And we have to move the machine out from near the kitchen wall when in use or else the cord starts to burn. It gets so hot on the outside that it made my kitchen smell like rubber from the electrical cord! That's scary. DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN!!! If you're an adult and you buy this for adults to use, just make sure the power cord does not touch the machine AT ALL or you will have a wonderful burnt rubber smell in your kitchen!
Bought this to replace an aging under-cabinet model where replacement under-cabinet models on the market were priced too high. Simple to use, but took a few tries to determine the toast setting I prefer. Outside of unit gets too hot.
I do not want to turn on the big ranger oven every time I want to heat up just a slice of pizza, this toaster oven is great, it heats up quickly and toasts/bakes evenly.
Great item to have in kitchen for quick use
Great value,very nice appearance,lots of cooking room and very loud 3 beeps when cooking is finished.
Love the look, the size and the brand. Turned on for 5 minutes ib 450 for 5 mini bagel pizza bites. They almost bunt. Love how fast it worked but it was so hot on the outside. It took about 30 minutes to cool down. So hot, I'm afraid my 6 year old or any of us getting hurt. The surface was scorching for a very long time and was way too hot.
Wire rack spaced to far apart and not built to accommodate a pizza.
The oven has a cutout to hold a round pizza but yet the rack doesn't fill any of the cutout. Causes the pizza to droop and make a mess of the oven.
Door doesn't really close all the way. Heats well. Great for frozen snacks from Trader Joes.
I really love this oven but I can't use it because it states you can only have this oven on the circuit by itself. It kept blowing my outlet and would not even toast bread. It's a shame because I want it but don't want to spend more money on an electrician to use it. It has to go back... Sorry!
I am so glad I purchased this toaster oven from kenmore it was the missing piece in our kitchen set. We recently bough a new oven and fridge and dishwasher but we have been waiting on a toaster oven for space issues ! The toaster oven heats up fast and easy to clean and fits perfectly with our kitchen style !
Very happy with this toaster oven. It's a substantial size and very versatile. Toasts to perfection. Just be careful the outside gets very hot (as with all toaster ovens)
It takes the place of my regular oven in a smaller version.I am able to do most everything like bake a cake, broil a steak or just toast some bread.
Really like this machine - functional yet attractive in my kitchen.
I love the look of this toaster oven plus it comes in about 4 different colors. It works properly and comes with extra racks to roast meat. One consideration you may have is that the oven doesn't have a button to stay on. It's always set on a time but I like that so that I won't forget to turn it off!!
