Very strange user design. When the temperature-based toaster setting is reached, the toast pops up with a loud mechanical sound; that is, the cycle completes and there's an obvious signal to the user, and that's a good thing. When the pop-up happens, power to the heating elements is shut off, also a good thing. Additionally, when the toasting cycle completes, an audible ping or bell sound occurs, although this sound is unneeded because the pop-up action is already loud enough. On the other hand, the oven function has no automatic function of any kind (other than the temp setting), no timer, no auto temp shut-off, no audible signal. So for toasting, this appliance produces two redundant indications of 'doneness' plus a, temp-based automatic function; but for oven 'doneness' it produces zero indications. Result is that the user is more likely to burn whatever is in the oven. Yes, the toaster function operates like a toaster, and the oven function operates like an oven, but when the functions are combined into one appliance, the designers should recognize the need to make the operation of each function more similar than they are. I like the product except for the lack of design for real-world user operation.
