Overall Review- 80% of the reviews for the this T-Fal toaster oven were very positive and accompanied by a four or five star rating. This oven has decent insulation (which means the outside doesn't get as hot as some of the cheaper models.) This toaster oven has high quality heating elements which offer more even cooking than those which have the typical long, red hot bars which tend to overcook the food closest to them. The crumb tray is in the front, which makes clean up easy. The controls are intuitive and easy to use. The upper oven, or warmer, adds versatility to this toaster oven. Many reviews are from home cooks who have used this toaster oven for years and still report that it works perfectly.
Out of the negative comments, the most shocking involve the glass shattering. This happened to seven people. That boils down to 2% or 1 out of 50! A little too high to instill customer confidence in the strength of glass used. Toaster Oven Reviews contacted T-FAl and asked for an explanation. T-Fal claims the issue arises when harsh cleansers or sponges are used, which compromise the strength of the glass. They state in the owner's manual that these types of cleaners and cleaning supplies should never be used. T-Fal also uses tempered glass, which minimizes the risk of injury should the glass break.
Other issues brought up in the negative reviews include no interior light, the clock is difficult to see, and the include baking dish has a cheap feel to it. Overall, this is a good toaster oven that is able to take the place of a full-sized oven in most two-person households. See 322 Customer Reviews for this toaster oven
