Overall Review- 74% of the toaster oven reviews for this Maxi-Matic model are very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. The reviews show this appliance to be a great value; it is just under $70 and ships for free yet performs more like the higher end toaster ovens.
Reviewers say the convection feature works well and leads to food that is cooked quickly and evenly. It is not too loud, especially compared to cheaper models. There is always going to be some noise associated with an appliance that uses a fan to circulate air.
This is a large unit; it can bake a twelve inch round pizza. This model does not get overly hot like most toaster ovens that cost less than $100, but there will be a considerable amount of external heat. The removable crumb tray is in the front, making it easy to clean. This is a great "everyday oven" for those who normally only cook for one or two people.
One thing to mention: you must select a temperature when toasting, unlike most models that just have a "toast setting" with a pre-determined factory-set temperature. This allows you to customize your appliance to toast things the way you like them toasted. The only problem is that the manual does not give a recommended toasting temperature, leaving some users not knowing where to begin. A quick call to Maxi-Matic reveals 350 degrees to be the recommended toasting temperature. You may lower or raise the temperature based on your personal preferences.
There are some users who feel this unit is not well-built. However, the majority of people feel it is indeed well-built for its price range. It all comes down to expectations. This is a relatively inexpensive model and expectations ought to be formed accordingly.
