Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by poodlesRock Finally, great toast!
I bought this because I've been disappointed in every conventional toaster I've ever bought. This makes the best toast I've ever had, evenly toasted all over, and dark as I want it. Also reheats food nicely. Read the directions on when to use the tray vs. just the rack. This infra-red heating is different, but I like it. I read the reviews and I wanted to try this one. I am very happy. Looks nice and doesn't take up a lot of room on the counter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TPen Effective, Efficient and Good Looking with a Small Footprint
I have an awesome, gourmet kitchen with multiple ovens and I love to cook large meals....about twice a year, (slight exaggeration). The rest of the time I want healthy, fast and easy meals. I wanted an oven that was good looking enough to leave out all of the time, small enough not to crowd my counter space and that would cook reliably. This oven fits my needs and I am very happy with my purchase. The oven is different from the traditional. The light used for cooking is blindingly bright. It also flashes a lot and is disturbing. The cooking temperature scale varies from the norm. There is no broiler setting. The oven does not generate heat like a regular toaster oven and coupled with its low profile I can safely use this oven without moving it out from under the overhead cabinet. The controls are very easy to use. Food does not cook more quickly than in other ovens but toast does. I always select a temp one increment higher than a recipe calls for. Nothing has ever burned, (amazing), and everything I've cooked in the oven has tasted good. I love this toaster oven and I use it everyday.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrResearch so far so good
Have only used this toaster oven for making toast, warming up my frozen bagels, and a slice of frozen pizza. Does all this well while taking up a small footprint on my counter. Tech support was good answering my questions and noting that the directions could be better regarding the power button which does not go off automatically (you turn it off). Also the cord should come out of the back-- I route mine under the front and around the left side to the socket on my backsplash. One more thing-- if you set the timer for the half minute, the .5 is smaller and, consequently looks strange. I'm glad oven rack is attached to the door.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lrs1249 Interior way too small
Unfortunately did not meet my needs. I should have read product information more carefully. Does not seem to be an "oven" at all. Will toast (2 slices) or reheat foods. I wanted something to replace my previous toaster oven which would actually cook casseroles, cakes, small roasts, etc.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toasty Love it!
I don't do many reviews--but since our Under-cabinet mount toaster of many years quit I haven't found one that I liked.
This one is great! I really like the full functions and simplicity of use. I have toast every morning--all I have to do is press "ON" and "TOAST" and I have perfect toast every time. Afterwards, I press "OFF" and know it won't continue heating. Toasting is always spot-on. The side of toast towards the back does get slighly darker than the front, but not enough to matter. If you prefer lighter/darker toast you can change setting easily. I have also cooked frozen pizza with another one-touch button that was perfect; and baked corn-bread in small cast-iron skillett with manual temperature setting (even though the footprint is smaller than most toaster-ovens).
I really like the "On-Off" button to make sure the power is OFF when we leave (small red LED indicates when power is on).
Oven is bright when heating (see pic) but not as blinding as this pic seems--you can see the food as it cooks. In addition to being convenient, it increases safety as it is impossible for oven to be heating and one not know it (if you are in the room that is).

I've had this toaster oven about 6 weeks now and I love it! It replaced a big old ugly toaster oven and a regular toaster, leaving me with much more counter space. I had never heard of an infared toaster oven before I started searching for a replacement for my old toaster oven but decided to give it a try after seeing all the good reviews. I've had no problems with it. It toasts bread very quickly and evenly. I use it mostly for toast and reheating leftovers, dinner rolls, etc. It heats food very quickly, is easy to use, and looks great on the counter too. It is very small but that's what I wanted in order to save counter space.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fastersnackster I saw the light!
O.K. first the cons- this toaster oven will not accept a large pizza, only the smaller 9" ones.
- the learning curve is steeper than a regular resistance heat oven.
-it will only toast four pieces of bread at a time
-the light is very bright, it will light up a dark kitchen
The pros are- this unit is fast, I can cook most items in about 40% less time
- this unit cooks with light, so there is no pre-heating of the oven.
-this unit is more energy efficient because it cooks with light
-it makes toast, frozen waffles, fish sticks, hash browns, biscuits, and cinnamon rolls well
-it has a smaller footprint than most ovens
-it is basically silent in operation

Love all the features, nice and compact and seems to be very well made. One of the few times I bought the extended warranty and hope I don't need to use it. First time I did an online order with HD and well satisfied.
