I love the compact size of this toaster oven. It is small enough for the counter, yet strong on performance. Even Heating I love the fact that this toaster oven cooks the food evenly whether you are using the rotissierre to roast a chicken or other meats. I like the fact that it melts cheese evenly without burning. Safety I feel very safe using this toaster oven. Of course with any other product that has coils that heat to cook food, you have to pay attention to what you are doing. Oven mitts should be worn at all times to prevent burns. Ease of Cleaning This toaster oven is very easy to clean. That is, if you wipe up your spills as soon as they occur. Without cleaning it up as soon as it happens creates a build up. This becomes baked on and can be bothersome to try and remove. Durability This toaster oven gets used on a daily basis by at least one of us in the household. We can count on it to cook the food fast without turning on the oven for small meals. Design I love the fact that this toaster oven is compact enough to fit on the counter. It has lots on interior space which even enables me to roast a small chicken.
