    Great features, high quality

    - Electronic controls easy to use and has a "preheat" function that beeps to let you know when to put food in - Compact (about the size of a small microwave) yet still fits a 12" pizza - Includes both a wire rack and baking pan so you can cook two things at the same time - High-end look and quality, won't turn brown like white or silver painted toaster ovens - Bottom elements not covered for easy cleaning - Has a "warm" feature to keep just-cooked items from getting cold while you may be preparing other food - 1800 watts, much more than most competitors - Convection fan for faster cooking It's amazing how other brands (C*sinart, D*longhi, Br*ville) charge more money for ovens without electronic controls, no convection fans, have less wattage (1300-1400w) for longer cooking times or are even smaller. At the regular price of $99 this is a great deal, so if you get it on sale it's an outstanding deal! I use this for everything--chicken, baking brownies, anything--no reason to waste energy using your full-size stove. Just a couple of notes: 1. A fan is always on while running to keep the electronics cool--it is NOT the convection fan, which is separate. In one way, it can be a good reminder that it is on since most toaster ovens are quiet. 2. Display is always "active" with some function blinking (usually bake). While barely noticeable and certainly doesn't use any more power, it's just unusual.

    Great but died within a year

    This is tough for me to review. It worked wonderfully when it worked, and the settings were intuitive & easy to figure out. Great at making toast, cooking pizza, and baking muffins. Somewhere around 9-10 months of owning it, it would emit a smell of burning electronics after turning the bake function on, and the convection fan was not turning on when it should have. I would stick something in there to make it turn, and it would turn and the smell went away. This progressively happened more and more often, until one day I went to plug it in and it just did not turn on at all. So having it come with a 2-year warranty was beyond helpful. HOWEVER... when calling the warranty number, you find out it is one of those contracted help desk situations located in another country. After fussing with someone who I could hardly understand, and them telling me I should try plugging it into another outlet, they finally decided to issue the refund. That's the only option you get is a refund- after emailing them a picture of them item# and the unit with the cord cut. I decided the refund was the better option. I loved the oven itself, but, my one, BIG gripe about it is that the instructions insist you unplug it at all times when not in use. My household used this a lot, so that was pretty inconvenient, and I'll admit...it didn't happen all the time. So maybe that's why it died early? Too much use and/or not unplugging? (otherwise the electronics were always on) Anyway, TL;DR: Probably an awesome choice if you aren't going to be using it on almost a daily basis, as we were!

    Better than expected

    I kind of only bought this item because it was on sale at the same time I was buying something else that was on sale. Since I've started using it, I haven't been disappointed. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it's not an exact science to narrowing down the time it takes vs what it would take in a conventional oven especially given that I always use the convection cooking setting. It cooks so much faster for most of the items that I've used it for that I came close to over cooking them but since I don't cook often, it was no set it and forget it so I was there watching it cook. So far I have no complaints. I foolishly punctured the plastic covering the baking sheet with my finger and cut myself on the bottom of it. There's no reason that it should be that sharp but I take it as user error. I got this on sale at half price so I'm going to upgrade that 4 to a 5 star because of the value even with the reason I was going to take a star. If I paid regular price, I'd give it 4 stars.

    This is actually a great toaster oven! You can't beat it for the price. It has lots of room, an easily removable crumb tray, actual convection, and lots of useful settings. Like the more expensive Breville units, it has a "bagel" setting which toasts the tops and warms the bottoms. It toasts uniformly, and its convection bake setting yields very good results. The only real downsides to it are: Its "beep" sound is far too loud. It is loud enough to wake people up who are still sleeping. There's also no "off" position. The display backlight and illumination around the buttons eventually turn off after a period of not being used, but "Power" button would have been a much better idea. I also would have preferred a knob to select the mode instead of a pushbutton (if you accidentally go past your desired setting, you have to push the button a bunch of times to wrap around again to the setting you missed).

    I bought my Bella Toaster oven on January 26 2018. I have loved this item up until this morning when I turned it on and heard a zzzzzzzz noise and saw a flash of light come from the right front bottom of the toaster oven. Needless to say it shorted out and no longer works. I called Best Buy thinking they would swap it out since it is only 10 months old and came with a 2 year warranty. To my surprise they told me I would have to ship it back to Bella for service since I didn't buy their extended Protection agreement. The cost of shipping this and waiting for another unit or repair of this unit isn't worth the money or hassle. Needless to say I will never buy another Bella product again. I'm now out $70.00 (got it on sale) and will have to buy another toaster oven. This just proves the old saying "you get what you pay for."

    Great Oven but loud...

    First off, this toaster oven is a really nice product. It's build quality and design are top notch. Plus, the unit has a ton of different modes and is an actual convection oven, although it doesn't straight out advertise it. That being said, my biggest gripe with the product is how loud it is. Not loud in the sense of cooking, but loud in that the beeping it does to let you know it's preheated, or done cooking, or even just selecting different modes and temperatures is obnoxious. And there is no way to turn it down. If there was, I'd give it 5 stars in a heart beat. It even preheats like a real oven so you can keep to the actual cook time of food instead of having to guess with traditional toaster ovens. Overall, great product, just loud.

    Seems to Work Well

    Not sure I can add anything to this that hasn't already been mentioned. Pros: 1. Just the right size. I wanted something just big enough to cook 12" frozen pizzas but nothing bigger. 2. Quiet when running. 3. Just enough presets to do what we need. 4. Only gets warm at the door. Cabinet stays fairly cool. Cons: 1. Agree with others. 4 setting for toast is too long. 2 setting seems about right (4 setting for bagels seems just about right). 2. Also agree with others. Would be nice if controls and display offered a bit more flexibilty. Wish it had an "off" button and a backlight when not in use would have been nice. Would also be nice to be able too adjust and save preset levels. Recommended.

    I brought this oven exactly 11 months ago and since every time we use it a smell of burning plastic always arose until one day stop working I calm the 1800 number in the website of bella for the Warranty and I have to wait for 20min to spoke with a representative after that they give me another phone number I have to call then I call and they give me a case number and email address where I have to send the poof of purchase and picture of the item then they told me they don't have this item available for replacement anymore and because I use some best buy rewards they can reimburse the money I pay but only the cash no the rewards so never ever ever buy a item like this again !!!

    Great value for toaster oven when on sale

    Over all, I really liked the oven. I liked the pre-heat function and digital controls. It beeps to let you know it has pre-heated. The temperature seems to hold true to the digital gage. It's also a nice size (not too big, but will still handle a 12" pizza). Easy to understand and set the controls. I returned it because I cut my finger on the bottom of the broiler tray (not the crumb tray) as it was very sharp on the bottom where the metal was pressed together. Would have kept it, if they had included a coated broiler pan with no sharp edges. Just need to be careful when cleaning or file the edges.

    As of this writing, I have only had it for a little over a week. So far, so good. Specs say it does not have convection oven setting, however there is a convection mode. Easy controls, very good digital display, easy to read, numerous handy preset controls. Preheats oven and lets you know when to put in your food. I was at first concerned that it would get too hot, however it is cool on top and all the sides, which works for me as newly installed under cabinet lighting will not get scorched. Of course the oven glass door does get hot, the handle is sturdy and stays cool. Looks good and seems very well made. Easy to clean. Worth every penny at regular price, I lucked out and purchased it at the Black Friday sale price. Toasts bread well too!!!

    This is a huge toaster oven and I can't imagine much that you'd normally use an appliance like this for that won't fit in it. This thing is hot! I have to turn the toaster settings down from the default of 4 to 2 ever single time, otherwise my toasted items burn. I wish it would remember previous settings. It is loud, especially when using it as a convection oven. Using it as a toaster is still somewhat noisy, but nothing I can't live with. It seems to be a good toaster oven for the price point. I'm happy with it.

    It works as it is supposed to. I wish there was a temperature control for the toasting function....setting it on 2 needs a little more time, 3 is over toasted, only temp option for toast is 450. I also wish it would remember which toast setting you used last, instead of needing to chose it every time. It also sticks out on my counter more than I would like due to cord plug size and where my wall plug is (middle of the toaster oven). Other than that all is great!! Toasts and cooks well.

    I have used the toaster several times on English muffins and it does a great job. I have not used the oven function as yet. While the controls are intuitive, it is best if you read the short instruction booklet to get a better handle on how the unit works. One thing that you need to know is that the top of the unit will get very hot. The manual says NOT to put anything on the top. The sides will not be as hot as the top. Allow several inches of clearance around the unit.

    I have found out thAt microwave are very unhealthy to the human body so I decide to get rid of mine and get a toaster oven and I decide to choose this one. Upon returning home I read the instructions set it up and everything defrost something and cook something in it and it came out great. I was very surprised about the accuracy of the heat and everything that The oven sends out and the confined space that has for such a big platform to cook on it provides extra room for everything else.

    nice oven, but no broiler top pan included.

    Oven seems to work well and looks nice, but the one we received only had the drip pan and an open grill for toast, but no broiler top pan like what you need to put burgers on and be able to turn them over when cooking. The open grill lets the burger fall through when cooking. Was the top pan missing from our order?? or was none included? Also, wish they had designed and included a manual shut-off button, instead of making you wait for the oven to turn itself off.

    What a great toaster oven...had purchased one at local department store on Black Friday and stopped by Best Buy and ran into this new Bella 6 Slice model and the rest is history. Luxury, spacious toaster and convection oven for half price Black Friday steal. Easy to operate and baked 12 inch pizza out the box. Love the digital display and presetting modes that are adjustable. Make sure you go to Bella site and register product for 2 year warranty.

    Great Toaster Oven

    By far the best Toaster Oven we have ever owned. After my old Oster oven broke I bought another Oster brand without doing any research. After 2 months we gave it away. It was awful. We really like the multi-function button for toast, bagels, baking, pizza and more. The "little more" button which adds more time, is a nice touch too. Contrary to one of the reviews I read, this toaster oven does have a convection on-off button. Solidly built and a good looking appliance.

    I bought it because my whole kitchen is black stainless steel. The oven only has a black stainless looking front. It seems cheaply built, my crumb tray is already rusted. Stainless steel doesn't rust. It's only a few weeks old and I'm regretting this purchase. Another thing I hate, it's easy to accidentally turn the oven on but difficult to shut it off. It seems to stay on after you hit the cancel button

    I bought this for my Mother-In-Law. She uses this almost everyday vs. heating up the oven. Its great because she is able to cook things in here for 4 people very easily without heating the whole kitchen up. I was a little disappointed that the top heating elements stopped working just over a year, however Bella stands by their product with a 2 year warranty and I will be exchanging for the same item because she loves it so much.

    Our prior toaster oven was just not cutting it anymore and was taking almost 10 minutes just to toast bread. This unit was easy to setup and has a digital screen that really simplifies anything you want to do. Already used it for baking some stuffed mushrooms which came out great and for toasting (only took about 3 minutes). Just a word of warning that it is a fairly large unit as it is made for 6 slices of toast. So, if you are looking for something compact, this might not be the best option.
