Overall Review- 75% of the reviews for this Krups toaster oven are very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. Those positive reviews portray a toaster oven with solid, quality construction. The digital controls are intuitive and easy to use. The quartz heating elements on this toaster oven allow it to heat very quickly and evenly. It's a large toaster oven, big enough to fit a twelve inch pizza. The crumb tray makes this model easy to clean. All in all, those 75% of favorable reviews say this is a wonderful toaster oven that can take the place of your full sized oven for most tasks, saving you time and energy costs. This is the toaster oven most recommended by consumer reports organizations and cooking groups, and with good reason.
The other 25% of the reviews paint a completely different picture. A lot of the negative reviews were based on the included baking pan, which has a very cheap non-stick coating which peels off even with hand washing. Although there is no excuse for such an expensive toaster oven to cheap out on the accessories, you can circumvent this problem by purchasing a toaster oven baking dish set separately. Other negative reviews focused on the inability of the toaster oven to be set in 1 degree increments. You are only able to change the temperature by 5 degrees at a time. So 350 degrees, 355, 360, etc…, but no 357 degrees. This is probably not a problem for most home cooks, but something you should be aware of before buying.
