  • broken handle
    Don't buy this toaster oven. The door was stuck and the handle broke off before I even got to use it one time. I have returned it and bought something else. ...more info
  • Excellent Cheap Toaster Oven! Very Happy!:)
    I got my Proctor-Silex Black Toaster Oven 2 weeks ago. I've baked cookies and heated up links and lunch meat in it about 6 or 7 times. The cookies are a wonderful crispy texture. I had to adjust slightly the temperature (350 to 325), no biggy. I love the look, the size is compact, the black/silver matches my appliances and the price is unbeatable for the quality. I like that the door slides up and they even thought of a way to slide in reverse to clean the inside. I just love it!...more info
  • one of a kind
    This is a wonderful toaster oven. We have a child with disabilities that can reach on top of the counters. Most ovens have a pull down door, this one rolls back. Being a roll back deters children from opening....more info
  • Good value for price
    I wanted a simple toaster oven to make toast and heat up open sandwiches - nothing fancy- nothing expensive It was hard to find because everything has a convection oven (which I didnt' need) which drives the price up into a range I didn't want to pay. This oven meets my needs - it toasts well and quickly - fits 4 slices very tightly (is a little smaller/shorter height inside than I expected.) Easy to see the toast due to rounded door design - I think it was worth the money....more info
  • Great if you need a separate gluten-free oven or just want to save power.
    In an effort to save on power costs, I bought this to bake in, rather than heating up my whole (in Texas) townhouse. I also have a relative with celiac who lives in a non-gluten-free home, and I wanted to try to develop recipes that she could make for herself separately while the gluten-eaters are doing their own cooking. A toaster oven like this is fantastic for that purpose. So far, I have baked fish, peanutbutter cookies, falafel, homemade gluten-free pizza crust, lentil casserole, tostadas, gluten-free bread in a pyrex bread pan, and gluten-free brownies in this. I think you could also use this for gluten-free chicken bites and fish sticks.

    It heats up fast; it comes with a pan that fits in the oven and an easy-to-remove crumb tray; there are no odd chemical smells, and the slide-down front cover saves space on the countertop (it only takes up the space of the actual toaster oven, not the counter space in front of the oven as well.) More importantly, it has a timer that will turn the oven off when 15 minutes are up; that's very helpful if you're one of those people who tends to wonder about leaving appliances on, or you actually do leave appliances on.

    I'm only giving it four stars, though--it will brown and bake with very little mess--but it doesn't toast bread, even though it has little bread icons and a 'toast' setting. It is, however, good for crisping up storebought gluten-free bread that has gotten a little too solid. So, I'd give it four and a half stars, really. It's almost perfect.

    Edit: I figured out how to get it to toast--put in on "Broil" for the amount of time you would toast. I suppose this now gets 4 3/4 stars....more info
  • Toaster/Oven Value Plus
    I had a GE Toaster Oven for over 20 years that seemed indestructable. I researched new ones & decided on the Proctor Silex. It has some very nice features. It's compact (about the same size as the previous GE). The rounded front door has a full glass window which allows you to see everything inside.This window/door rolls up rather than out saving needed counter space in front. The interior has a non-stick finish with chrome wracks for easy cleaning. The warranty is for 2 years. This little Toaster/Oven bakes, broils, & toasts. The interior crumb tray & bake pan could be of better quality stainless (my only criticism). Other than that at the $40 price this one is a winner!...more info
  • The answer to cooking in the summer!
    This is my first toaster oven. I choose this product based on the reviews I read on Amazon.com. I have to say I love this little oven. The fact that the door slides up and over the oven is a real space saver for me. I have only used the oven three times but it has worked great every time. I am looking forward to using it more this Fall when I will make more meals requiring an oven/broiler/toaster....more info
  • phyllis7
    This is a great little toaster/oven for the price. I have limited counter space and the reviews posted by others really helped me to decide on this purchase. I find this appliance to do a fine job on everything I've used it for AND I don't need to heat up the entire kitchen for things that taste better cooked in an oven rather than the microwave. I am very pleased and highly recommend it....more info
  • Love my Toaster Oven
    I've not used my regular oven for a decade now because it's simply too hot (think global warming in Southern California and no central A/C in a 50s apartment with no insulation!). Furthermore, I've not used my Microwave in years due to it being unhealthy. Then my toaster broke down and after plenty of research and reading reviews, I finally decided to get this toaster oven. What a wonderful piece of equipment !!! I love it ! It makes the most perfect garlic and cheese toast and just now I baked one giant chocolate chip cookie with Nestle Toll House dough. Yummie :-) The toaster oven is easy to use and I especially like the "roll back" glass cover which doesn't require "door space" to the front, top or side. The oven is very easy to use, does not require much space and is simply perfect for me....more info
  • No Go as Toaster
    Purchased for use primarily as a toaster, but wanted added convenience of small oven. Did not function well as a toaster at all - only one element top and one on the bottom, toasting unevenly and VERY slowly. Never used the oven function....more info
  • toaster oven
    I researched this purchase and decided on this toaster oven because of its size. I have a small kitchen and this does not take up much counter space. Love the retro style. Like the ease of use...only two knobs to set. The interior size is smaller than I thought it would be. Right now I can only fit a loaf pan inside. My 8x8 glass pans don't fit because of the handles, however, the 8x8 metal pan does. Also, any food cooked in a pan seems to get the top overcooked because it is so close the the heating element. I have solved this by covering with foil the first half of the cooking time. ...more info
  • Great little oven
    This is a good little oven for the money, much better than a regular toaster. I highly recommend...more info
  • You get what you pay for
    We've owned this oven for about 18 months now and I wasn't expected it to be anything special. However this thing has been barely worth keeping. It serves it's main purpose, which is toast and heat things up; and does little else. First of all, about six month ago pieces just started cracking off so now it would be possible to reach inside where the knobs are. The shape of the oven itself is rotund and makes it quite difficult to not take up plenty of counter space even when in a corner. It also has safety problem. The poorly designed handle, which must have been affixed to the side of the glass with rubber cement from the factory, is not attached anymore. So now to prevent myself from burning my hand I need some sort of tool to open the front instead of using the handle. For literally $10-15 more you could buy a better toaster oven, which a.) fits in a corner properly b.) better built c.) won't put your family's health in danger. ...more info
  • Best toaster oven I have had!
    This toaster oven is great! I have cooked cube steaks, warmed pizza, cooked chicken nuggets, and used it to make toast. It does hold 4 slices of bread and it makes the best toast a toaster oven can make (not as good as a toaster of course). I love the size of it and the way the door is. I love that I can see what is going on in there. Very good for the price. ...more info
  • Not bad so far
    I was shocked at how hard it is to buy a decent new toaster oven. My old, very basic White Westinghouse finally shorted out and I fixed it twice, but thought it might be a fire hazard, so started reading reviews. It seems no one likes any toaster oven. All have bad reviews, cheap or expensive. I wanted something a little more advanced than my old one, but nothing fancy. Also, brick and mortar stores carry only a few - most are online and have vague descriptions and you can't see what they look like or how they work.

    I chose this toaster oven because it had the fewest bad reviews I could find on various sites, and mostly 4 or 5 stars otherwise. Some of the bad reviews were about difficulty cleaning, but I think those folks didn't read the manual - the door removes for cleaning.

    We ordered this from Target on Monday and received it on Tuesday. I like to order from Target because if something is wrong, you can return it to the store rather than shipping it somewhere.

    We've used it two days - we basically use our toaster oven several times every single day, so we need one that is hard working. This one seems sturdy, I wish it wasn't plastic, but you need that as I'll explain in a bit. It looks good on the counter, and fits a little more inside than our old one. I like the pull out crumb tray - our old one had the drop down kind. I'm not sure how I like the slide up door - I'm afraid if someone's not careful they'll let it fall down and it will break. But it is kind of handy.

    I also like that it does't have too many controls and that it shuts off with the timer. One person complained of a toaster oven that it didn't go up to 500 degrees. Well, geez, I never use my real oven that high, who would need a toaster oven to go to 500?

    Anyway, we've only had it for two days, but it works fine so far. Seems to be right on with temp. and cooks more quickly than our old one - I have to set things for much less time than I'm used to.

    Caution - this sucker gets HOT. Only the black plastic parts stay cool (hence why you need the plastic). Our old t.oven was metal but did not get so hot on the outside, but it was a much simpler model. The glass and the top get really hot. Only open the door with the handle, and don't bump the top metal part when getting anything out. It might have been nice to have some sort of guard there, at least on the front top edge. It's not easy to get things out of the oven without bumping that.

    I'll update this review if anything significant comes up. I hope this will last as long as our old one....more info
  • Very disappointed...
    I purchased this item because of the positive reviews I've read about it by other users. It arrived in a timely fashion but as I was unpacking it I noticed that the door isn't sliding open. I wasn't sure if it was locked in some way so I kept skimming over the toaster to make sure there wasn't something holding it in a locked position. As I grabbed the handle to use more force I could see the whole body of the toaster flex and bend as if it were going to fall apart. After some time I used both hands to finally pry it open and I have to use quite a bit of force to do so. I was afraid it was going to break in my hands since the door is glass.
    So I tried making some toast. Something seemed to be burning that is related to the door as I saw smoke coming from the doors itself, not from my food. And since the whole unit is incredibly hot now I can't use both hands to pry it open as I did before using it.
    I'm so disgusted as I have tried to do my best to do my research to get an adequately priced toaster by reading reviews. This is a piece of junk and I'm aggravated that I now have to go through the trouble of returning this through the post office and having to pay for postage.
    The door doesn't work, it should have been tested before they sent it off. I am now starting to believe that if a certain model isn't sold in stores like Target or Best Buy for easy carry out the door purchasing that it probably isn't worth bothering with as my situation demonstrates.
    I'd like to give this piece of junk '0' stars. This is the worst purchase experience I've ever had on amazon.com...more info
