    It was red and the right size. Also works well.

    Not sure why they show a bagel in it other then to show it has a wide slot. It does not have a bagel setting or a broiler setting, so both side of bagel get toasted. Does toast just fine. Oven is big enough for about 2 pieces of bread, so is slot. Tried baking a cheese sandwich. Didn't turn out to well. Probably too much butter. Can't think of what else to use the oven for except for reheating pizza. Mainly got it for my mother to use as she has toast in the morning, so needed something that would be easy enough for her to figure out, since it was her Christmas gift. After a couple of tries she's got it.

    Worst Hamilton Beach I've Ever Had

    This was a replacement for my old Hamilton Beach Toaster Oven. I was updating my kitchen and although my oven worked perfectly, it was/looked old. Size mattered, so this was the same size to work well in my small kitchen. That's all I have to say about it that's good. It's nothing but a tin can with heating elements; inconsistent toasting results and THE most annoying beeping when it's done ruining your bread! It is so cheap!! If you have the space, buy anything else. The toaster/oven design is perfect for us; but honestly, I think I'd rather have just a good toaster. HB, this one is the pits. Sorry the quality has gone down so much.

    Versatile, but small.

    I bought this for a small, temporary apartment as I am going through a divorce. I wanted something that won't take up much counter space while giving me versatility. It does exactly that. However, I wish the toaster oven part was larger. I don't see how you can get more than one slice of an average size of pizza or more than one personal pizzas as the description indicates. This is nice for a dorm room or a small apartment for one or two people. It's also a little pricey. ($36.99) Fortunately, I used Reward Zone coupons-and caught it on sale. It's still nicer than the one that I replaced it with.

    i would love to recomend this to a friend, however i cannot properly do so at this time. the toater works great, however! the oven does not work 90% of the time. i have to push the toaster lever to get the thing to run. not sure if itss a manufactures issue or if it broke in transit to the store. i have used the toaster probably 20 or more times since i bought it, and have only gotten the oven to work once, without using the toaster lever.

    Some improvements over previous model and one not-

    Really like this new model. We've been using our old one for about 20 years. One great improvement is that the bottom snaps out for easy cleaning. A disappointment is that the knobs have hard to see "marker" slots in them instead of pointers or a drop of paint. We painted the slots for greatly improved visibility. There is a "I'm done" beeper, but it is too quiet to hear if there is ANY background noise. Would I buy another? Yes.

    Awesome toastation

    I enjoy the toaststation. As an on the go family, we eat breakfast more often now because we can just pop in a waffle and heat up sausage at the same time. Or during lunch bake some wings, chicken, and fries. It also compliments my other appliances and decrease room for clutter. The different temperatures allows us to enjoy our meals however we prefer, some like it just warm and others like it toasty. Overall I love the toaststation. Sorry to sound like a commercial actress, but I really do love this item. LOL :)!

    This is the third Toastation that I have bought. I had the red one and decided to redo my kitchen and purchased the black for a better match. I have had my red one for 8 years and did not need to do any research when purchasing a new toaster oven. It is amazing and is a must have. My sister in law liked mine, so I purchased her one as a gift. I love the look and functionalities of this product!

    Nice Toaster Oven

    We're gald we bought this, even though the oven has limited space. It is not for people who want this to substitute for a regular oven. The toasting function is the best and the crumb tray is at the bottom and rermovable so it's easy to keep clean. If toasting is what you really want, with occasional warming of small things in the oven, this may be for you.

    Very small cooking space, but large outside box.

    I was very disappointed with the toaster. It takes a long time to heat up. If you want to cook 4 pieces of toast you have to use both the top and bottom. The outside of the box takes up a significant amount of counter space but the interior cooking space is very small. A large piece of pizza would be difficult to fit in it. I returned this to the store as it did not meet any of my expectations.

    We have limited counter space and missed our toaster oven. This gives you a small toasteroven and a traditional toaster. Oven space is really small but cooks very well. Overall size is just larger than a good sized toaster. I held back a star because the oven is so small. Love it other than that. Great for pizza rolls, frozen fries, toast with cheese, etc. just nothing thicker than 2 inches or so.

    Just OK for Small Spaces

    It toasts very unevenly and the oven section is very small vertically, so pot pies do not fit in as they touch the base of the toasting element. However, this is the smallest combo of toaster and oven I could find. The black has a strange grey trim, so I swapped for the red. I thought the trim was beige, but it is grey too. Just OK if you want something not too big.

    Pretty good product. Does a great job on toast and the oven does a pizza reheat very well. But not a full size toaster oven. I bought it to replace my standard size toaster oven when moving to a much smaller kitchen. Takes up little counter space. BUT the oven aspect is pretty small. one large slice of pizza at a time.

    So far it's working great except sometimes bread comes out toasted ok and sometimes a little under toasted were I have to do it twice! Then it's to toasted. I figured it out that it has to be a bit before number 3 to be ok but even then it does that! I've only used the oven once and it burned a little the bread my mom was making. Maybe it was to high I'm assuming

    Great Toaster/Toaster Oven

    This Toaster/Toaster oven works great for me. I use it both to toast my Artesian bread, and I use it to heat up my pieces of pizza or Chick'n Tenders (vegetarian chicken tenders) or anything else that is flat. It takes up very little room on my countertop. I am really happy with my purchase!

    Top Toaster part works fine. The oven part cooks the outside of food fast and inside of food is still cold and not cooks. If you set for longer the food would be burnt and still cold inside. Set oven for lower temp for longer kinda defeats the purpose. Might as well use reg oven and save space.

    I had to return the original cause the door wasn’t staying up while using oven. I returned it to the store cause I was in my return period and they sent me a new one. I haven’t tried it yet to see if the door was solid on this one yet but as soon as I do, I will update this review.

    Excellent Countertop Appliance

    This takes up barely more space than a regular pop-up toaster, yet the oven part is large enough for most one-meal needs. It's too small to cook a pizza, but great for smaller items. The pop-up feature for toast is also great. It makes better, more evenly browned toast than many toaster ovens I have used.

    Nice small toaster for vacation home

    I bought this toaster for my beach condo because the kitchen is very small. This doesn't take up much space and looks nice. Matches all the stainless appliance in my kitchen. Makes a nice beep sound when you put a piece of toast in and when it is done. I gave it 4 stars because the bottom 1/3 of the toast doesn't get toasted for some reason.

    Bought this to cut down on countertop clutter. I like toast with butter made in the broiler while my wife prefers traditional toast made in a toaster with butter added afterward. This has suited both our options and eliminated 1 appliance from the counter.

    It's been a good replacement for us. I don't know why it needs three control knobs, and it's a little noisy, but otherwise good. We did decide for this model because the picture showed the rack being pulled forward when the door opened. Apparently that feature is no longer part of the model and no one mentioned. A little disappointed; fine anyway, though.
