This is one outstanding little toaster oven. We have had our now for about 17 years, and it is finally time to replace it as one of the elements has broken. But up to now it has performed flawlessly.
It's biggest feature is its small footprint. It fits easily into kitchen garages, and the fact it is vertical rather than horizontal makes it a great space user. It has a selector to use the top, bottom or both slots, and (my favorite) a bagel setting, wherein it toasts only the inside. So you can put a bagal in with the centers facing and it will toast them but not the outside.
It's size is not big enough to toast more than 2 pieces or regular bread at a time, although it will handle rather large pieces; it just isn't quite big enough to two side-by-side. I also does a fine job of smaller jobs such as grilled cheese.
You do have to handle it a bit carefully as it gets quite hot from toasting. The door handle is always fine, but the box will get too hot to touch, so you have to insure it is cooled enough before putting it back in the garage. However that happens reasonably quickly.
Overall a fine little toaster, and I hope it comes back soon - I need a replacement, and nothing else comes even close.
