This is my first toaster oven and I'm in love. Heats quickly, easy to use and works very well. I've baked pizza, and quiche, toasted fresh and frozen bread, broiled meats and fish and all have worked well. It's been easy to clean as well. The only cons I can say about it is that when a fairly heavy load is placed on the top position rack, the rack has slipped out of place twice....kind of messy with quiche. It may be something I'm doing wrong...have not read the book to figure it out and it vibrates noisily when using convection function. Still, I'm buying a second one for a gift.
