Rating- the Maxi-Matic ETO-730B has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars
Size– it measures 16.5 x 13.2 x 22.2 inches
Watts – 1500
Convection – Yes
Features- Includes broiling pan, wire rack and slide out crumb tray
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.
This is a large unit; it can bake a twelve inch pizza. This model does not get overly hot like most toaster ovens that cost less than $100. 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 set 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.

Overall Review- 66% of the toaster oven reviews for the Black & Decker CTO4500S are very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. The majority of users found this model to be very affordable and versatile. They liked having an alternative to their full-sized oven for small meals and snacks. They enjoy the more even baking that comes with the convection feature.
32% of the reviews were written by consumers that were not nearly as pleased with this Black and Decker unit. The complaints were varied. Many people feel the settings are difficult to see and the knobs are hard to turn. The exterior gets very hot while the unit is in use, leading to frequent burns when not being careful. This is a common complaint with cheaper units; they are not as well-insulated as the more expensive models. Many people feel the convection fan is excessively loud.
This is a very small unit; even with the "pizza bump" it can only accommodate a 9 inch pizza. Some see this as a pro (takes up less counter space) while others are disappointed.
Overall, this is a very economical appliance. It works well for it's price. If you want a high quality toaster oven that can work as well as your main oven only on a smaller scale, you will need to spend more.

Overall Review- A disappointing 20% of the toaster oven reviews for this Cuisinart model are very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. This is part of Cuisinart's budget line and that is certainly reflected in the reviews.
Although you should not expect the same level of quality in a inexpensive toaster oven as you would in a high-end model, there are certain things that are not excusable. One such issue that is repeated throughout the reviews: a defective heating element which turns on randomly. Many of the reviews tell of this appliance beginning a cooking cycle without anyone touching or even being near it. This is truly unsafe and we would recommend avoiding this toaster oven. Should you decide to take your chances with this model, be sure to unplug it when it is not in use. See 56 customer reviews for this Cuisinart Toaster Oven
Rating- the Sanyo SK-CV8S has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 stars
Size– this unit measures approximately 12-4/5 by 20-1/5 by 10-1/5 inches
Features- It offers 6 cooking functions–bake, convection bake, toast, broil, defrost, and pizza. It has a 6-position oven rack for versatility plus 6 shade settings, adjustable temperature and a 4-hour timer
Overall Review- 46% of the toaster oven reviews for the Sanyo SK-CV8s are very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. That is not exactly a high enough percentage to instill a sense of confidence regarding this product.
The negative reviews are due to a high level of product defects, such as complete heating element failure or the door hinge breaking. Those reviews generally acknowledge an initial satisfaction with this appliance, until product failure did occur. One must wonder if the roughly half of consumers that rated this toaster oven positively just haven't used the product enough for it to break yet? The positive reviews do say that this toaster oven bakes very evenly and is large enough to take the place of a full-sized oven most of the time. This Sanyo model also features 6 different positions for the baking rack, adding to the versatility of this unit.The high temperature available (500 degrees F) makes this toaster oven ideal for broiling.

Overall Review- 63% of the toaster oven reviews for this Farberware model are very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. That number is dragged down by one review written by someone who received a defective unit. Buying through this site protects you from that problem. We have partnered with Amazon and all sales go through them. They will replace any defective products within 30 days and they even pay for the return shipping. If you remove the one negative review that resulted from receiving a defective product (that person did NOT buy from Amazon,) the number of people who left very favorable reviews jumps to 71%, a much more respectable number.
Those positive reviews paint a picture of an appliance that is a good value for the money. This Farberware unit is small enough to easily fit in your kitchen, yet large enough to take the place of your full-sized oven for many cooking tasks. Many people enjoy the simplicity of the easy to use old-fashioned knobs, rather than the new digital controls found on other models.See 8 Toaster Oven Reviews
