Is very friendly using and food really cooks rapidly.
Just got it and so far it is working great. Fits perfect on my counter,
Looked like a quality oven but my main reason for returning it before even using it was that the writing for the control knobs was so small it was near impossible to read without putting on glasses and even then all of the different setting readings were still difficult to read.
I bought this because I am tired of the quartz tube toaster ovens that work very slowly and inconsistently. This unit has the thinner heating element we used to call a cal-rod. So far it works very well. The one thing I have to remember is that for oven, preheating is necessary. Without preheating, the rod gets very hot during the temperature ramp up and might burn the surface of the food. Toasting has been fairly consistent. Haven't done any broiling yet. It would be really nice if the knobs had a white line on them to indicate where they are pointed. The black raised spot on a black knob isn't very visible, depending on the room lighting. Let's see, where's my white paint!
No more hot kitchen on hot days. Toast comes out perfectly. Made meatloaf, bbq chicken, broiled salmon, roasted veggies, etc.
All with ease and all cooked just right. No more lifting pan from oven. Just slide pan out. Fits perfectly on the counter of my small kitchen.
This is by far the very best toaster oven, I love it, and all Cuisinart products!!! Its attractive and doesn't take up a large part of my counter, and its affordable. I also have this oven at my condo in Florida and wouldn't consider any other product. Its perfect for toasting, baking and roasting with great results (and I've done all three) and I love the fact I don't have to start my large stove oven. If in doubt, this is the perfect purchase.
