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.
On the plus side, it cooks well and is easy to operate. However has some serious design problems that could have been easily fixed. First, the rear has a rounded area that protrudes from the rectangular toaster to allow you to fit a round pizza in it. That works well except for one major problem. The rack you put the pizza on is square, so the pizza overhangs a couple of inches beyond the rack into this oval. Pizza are breaking and dumping pizza toppings into the back of the over. The rack could have easily been extended and there wouldn't be an issue. The second design issue is the rack can't go down very far and it makes it impossible to fit anything bigger than a few inches tall. It does cook pizzas very quickly and is great for reheating, but could have easily been much better.
Then the bottom coils stopped heating up enough to Brown the bottom side of the toast. Which hes being no choice but to return the item.
This toaster is the best does just about everything when it comes to making something to eat Love It
First when the item came the box was ripped. Upon opening the box, the item seemed intact. UPon using the product, it did not appear to me that the heating element was working properly. I say this because when I select the bake function at 350 degrees frozen fish sticks or chicken nuggets that should take 15 to minutes to be fully cook through were still soggy. I used an oven thermometer to check the temperature of the toaster oven and the bake function at 350 degrees was only registering 300 on the thermometer.
Bought this same model a number of years ago and really liked it. The new one has easier to read dials which pleased us. And the delivery time was much faster than originally estimated.
Got this item 40min ago. Plugged it in and no heat; no convection fan running. Tried 2 other outlets in my home to verify that is not the electrical. Still nothing. To say that I am aggravated would be a huge understatement. Waiting for customer service to call me back.
