Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bobonthis DO NOT BUY
Piece of garbage. Timer broke after 3 uses and then unable to use oven. Once timer breaks, oven is nothing but a paper weight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Darleen Love this oven
This is the second convection toaster oven of this make and model we have owned. First oven lasted approximately 5 years. This size is perfect fr baking meals for 2 people without using large oven. Favorite meal: meatloaf.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheyenne Very Nice Toaster Oven
This toaster oven came in a timely manner. It is very nice looking and just the right size to fit on my counter top in a small apartment. Works well and a good value.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by quartznono do not buy quartz elements
Both quartz elements on bottom of unit burnt out, only cooks from the top so you can't even make toast. Only made it past the first year (warranty). Cheaper to replace whole unit but never with quartz and probably not Black & Decker. I also have a toaster with 6 quartz elements, 3 top 3 bottom and all 3 bottom elements have stopped working on that also. ughhhh

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by renata1 Excellent Product
The toaster oven is compact ,but does the same job that a full sized oven does. I use it almost daily. My only criticism is that the door does not stay open on its own. It has to be propped up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cboater Works Well, As hoped and Expected
Currently own a B&D toaster oven with no convection. Wanted to upgrade to acquire convection capability while still having the ability to toast. A little disappointed that I cannot fit a 9" baking dish in the oven and that I will have to buy an 8" brownie pan. Otherwise, the product works quite well for toasting, browning, baking anything that fits inside. Love the convection feature which helps cook things evenly without having to move the items to higher/lower trays or rotate them during baking. The toaster oven is also quite attractive, a good thing since it sits on a counter in the open.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stella Quality has gone downhill over the years
The oven is a nice, compact size, but not without its problems. It does not seem to get as hot on the outside as others have mentioned. Maybe that's because the door does not close all the way... There is about a 3/8-1/2" opening. The glass front is curved, and seems to match the curvature of the front opening. Maybe the return spring is too weak to hold the door closed, or the hinge is bent. Either way, it is a problem.
I washed the metal drip pan with soap and water with a soft scrubby sponge, as per the instructions, and whatever coating was on the pan started peeling off. Hmmmm... My old B&D toaster oven came with real aluminum pans and accessories.
The convection fan makes moaning and rattling sounds. I've already requested a return, and have ordered another. I have had good experiences with Black & Decker in the past. This oven was a replacement of another slightly smaller toaster oven I have had for more than 20 years. Only recently has it started to not heat up past about 250F. I gave the insides a good clean, but it just doesn't work like it used to. My old oven has a door switch. When opened, the oven turned off, this new one stays on. Too bad they have abandoned the classic thermostatically controlled toaster function. I just don't see a lot of toasting in my future with this new oven if I have to watch the toast to keep it from burning.
I looked quite a bit for an replacement, and chose Black & Decker over other brands for a few reasons. Their ovens are one of the only brands that have a protective guard over the heating elements to prevent spills and food burning into the element surface. This oven has four evenly spaced elements unlike some brands with only one element on top. The thermostat seems accurate. I placed my oven thermometer from my big oven on the grate, and set the temperature dial for 350F. The oven clicked off just as the temperature was approaching 350F. As it cycled on and off, the temperature stayed within 25 degrees of 350F. There is a lot to like about this oven. My hope is this particular oven just turned out to be a dud.
Another reason for the two-star review is the lack of replacement parts. There are many reports of broken knobs, and every appliance repair part site lists most all replacement parts as "obsolete" or "unavailable from manufacturer" OK, I get it, you want me to order the parts directly from B&D, but these ovens are not even listed at the B&D parts website. Really!?! I can understand if I was looking for parts for a 10 year or even a five year old oven. I feel it is ridiculous not to offer replacement parts for an oven in current production.
I understand this is not a commercial convection oven. It does do a better job of even cooking with the small amount of air-flow from the noisy fan. Cooks bacon on a rack just fine. Good for warming up leftovers, and I cooked a whole (small) chicken; I would recommend a cut up chicken instead for even cooking. Overall is has potential to be a great little counter-top oven. It just seems quality has suffered, and longevity of the product will not be as useful as products manufactured, in years past, in the USA.
