Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Berniki Timer Knobs keep breaking!
This is the second one that I've had - the timer knob stops working after a while. It will stop ticking right before it reaches "off" and the heat will stay on, which ends up burning whatever's inside

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dot g Product improved over older models
Got my new toaster oven last week to replace an older model and I am pleased with its features. The knobs have been redesigned and are much easier to turn. It even has a removable tray for cleaning up crumbs. This is so much easier than opening the bottom and tilting the oven like my old one.
I have to say it still doesn't toast bread as nice as a toaster but I am certainly happy enough with how the toast comes out.
One feature that needs addressing yet is the "stay on" feature. It shouldn't be located near the off selection but it is. However since the knobs are easier to turn, I have less worry about going too far and overturning the off cycle.

Had mine 4.5 years and can't live without it!!! Used daily for toasting, baking chix, chops, mini muffins, broiling crocks of French onion soup, keeping service plates hot, and holding foods to temp. Not tall enough for souffles though.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by toast52 Send it back to the lab for re-design
After 15 years with my previous B&D toaster oven, the heating element burned out, and I purchased this new one. I am disappointed with all the features. The writing on the face of the toaster oven for the functions and the temperatures is too small to read. Also B&D used white type against a black background. I have to use reading glasses and a flashlight to see the print. You have to guess at the amount of toasting based on 2 small and hard to see icons. Unlike the older TOs that shut off when you opened the door, this model continues to cook if the timer is still running. You have to manually shut it off or wait for the timer. I miss my old toaster oven.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NowhateBandD Poor substitute for earlier model that I loved
I replaced an old style Black and Decker that I had used for years with this model. With the older model, I could turn a knob to indicate how brown I wanted my toast to be. I then punched the button and the oven toasted for the amount of time corresponding to the first setting and turned off. With this model, you turn a knob to indicate how long to toast your bread. There isn't a whole of lot of room to choose, and we usually either wind up with bread that isn't toasted or is burned. I hate this product and wonder why they had to redesign a product that worked great and lasted forever with a piece of junk!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I-hate-my-toaster DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!
My family and I have had this toaster for a good 6 months now I would say, and that's about how long it's taken to actually toast a piece of bread without completely burning it on the first try.
--Because it uses knobs, it's very difficult to pin point what setting you've exactly set it to. Not to mention, it doesn't always seem very accurate.
However, if one is looking for a toaster oven solely to bake say, chicken nuggets, it's perfectly fine since it has a 'stay on' knob setting.
I like to toast things. Therefore, I hate this toaster oven with a passion. Do not buy it, you will end up wanting to chuck it out the window, or smash it with the nearest heavy object.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by M It is difficult to set the cooking setting
I just purchased this product and I find that I am having a hard time setting it. My family and I have burnt bagels and toast because the we can not see or get a feel for what the setting should be. I feel that setting and then turning the dial like the instructions state will just lead to that knob breaking in the future.
It is a poorly designed product. I can not believe that people use this product and don't get frustrated or mad.
I would not recommend this to anyone and while I have just purchased this product I will be looking to buy another.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NTheGadgetGuy 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.
