I have had this small toaster over for approx 6 mos. and we LOVE it. I got tired of using the gas stove's oven to cook a single chicken breast, or a couple of steaks, and heating the entire apartment when I did. Not to mention the cost of heating a large gas stove oven for a tiny piece of food. So when we needed to replace our toaster, I began looking for a toaster oven. I have always liked Black and Decker small appliances, so I bought this little miracle!
We have made toast, rolls, cookies, biscuits, steaks, fish, chicken, small pizzas and even cakes and brownies in this little oven! We used it all summer long to bake desserts without having to go outside to escape the heat from a gas stove oven. I ADORE IT!! I'm going to attempt my holiday mini cheesecakes in it next week.
It heats up quickly, cooks evenly and is energy efficient when you consider the waste of natural gas to heat an entire oven, as well as keeping a pilot light lit. We unplug it whenever we are not using it because we have limited kitchen counter space and it is placed where the only electrical outlet is, near the kitchen sink. Plus my boyfriend has forgotten to turn it off after making brownies.....so I just unplug it.
I recommend this to anyone who lives alone, has limited space and is looking for a great product!! I'm looking forward to having an extra little oven to make this years holiday meals with! I use an electric roaster oven for the turkey so I can use the stove for baking goodies, but with this also on hand, my homemade rolls will be rolling out with the turkey, dressing and yams at the same time this year!! Its going to help a lot!!
We are getting one for my Aunt for Hanukkah.
Buy it, if not for yourself then for a gift! You will not be sorry!!!
