This handy kitchen appliance, the Welbuilt Toaster Oven/Broiler is a great asset to have ready on your counter. It toasts bread, bagels, english muffins, etc, without jamming or getting stuck in a traditional pop-up toaster. The timer can be set for as little or as long as you need it to go, no more forgetting to check a setting and realizing your toast is now a crispy brown instead of a light golden toast. Another neat thing about this appliance is the broiler aspect. If you want only the top part of whatever you are cooking toasted, use the broiler. I have made many pizza bagels this way with only the top part "toasting" and melting the cheese and warming the sauce and meat. It's a great fast way to make a quick meal, without the mess and energy using a full size broiler would consume. The downside to this as a toaster, which is what I primarily use it for, is that it has to "warm up". The first toast I make in it takes quite a bit longer to toast in the morning than the second batch, which takes about half the time (more or less if my bread is frozen).
