Overall Review- Only 61% of the toaster oven reviews for this Hamilton Beach model (22708) are very positive and paired with a 4 or 5 star rating. Those reviews tell of a handy 2 in 1 appliance that gets the job done without devouring large amounts of counter space. The makers of this combo unit decided to separate the baking and toasting functions so that each could perform optimally. The majority of reviewers feel this has been accomplished.
The authors of the other 39% of the reviews feel that this countertop appliance falls short in both the toasting and oven functions. Toast is sometimes able to fall through to the oven portion of this appliance; you can't toast and bake at the same time. Both the oven and toaster are prone to "hot spots" that burn portions of the food before the rest is done. Hot spots are a common problem on inexpensive models; that isn't something specific to this particular unit. The oven portion is small compared to many other models. Think carefully about how much cooking space you need before settling on this unit. Overall, this is a very well-priced unit that won't take up a lot of room on your countertop.
