    Life changing. SERIOUSLY!

    Best Buy's Deal of the Day combined with their great return policy has opened me up to taking some chances on purchasing products that I otherwise might not consider. This Insignia Toaster Oven might be the best "chance" I've ever taken in this regard. I had never used a toaster oven and didn't know much about them. For the price, I figured it wouldn't hurt to pick it up and try it out. Worst case scenario I could just return it. This thing has literally changed my life! I have a small gas oven in my apartment, and I hate the hassle of cooking with it because of how hot it makes my apartment. Plus I often only have very small portions of things to cook at one time anyway. I'm not going to turn on the oven to cook a small portion of something and would instead cook a larger portion (that gets refrigerated and reheated in the microwave-boo!!!!!) or just not cook at all. Well now, I cook/bake the majority of stuff in my Insignia toaster oven because it gives me the advantage of cooking smaller portions quicker, using up less energy, AND by not heating up my apartment. It cooks just as well as my oven, and it bakes things better than my oven because of the fact that it's cooking from the top and bottom. The heating tube on the top puts some really nice crusts on the various things I bake. I purchased some small cast iron pans and other toaster oven sized cookie sheets and pans, and now I can literally cook almost anything I need in this toaster oven. The adjustable timer and adjustable temperature settings are great. My ONLY gripe with this unit is that there's room for two cooking racks, but it only comes with one. I contacted Insignia, and they said there's no way to order another one. I also couldn't find a rack online that was the exact dimensions of the Insignia Toaster Oven rack. I came up with a solution on my own though by purchasing two small racks and connecting them together into one to make a second rack for the toaster oven. I'm very satisfied with this purchase. Hope this review helps. Thanks. Matthew 7:12

    This unit replaces a 15 year old oster. It is smaller then my last unit but I don't need to cook a pizza in it. (Does not fit a pizza) It toasts very evenly and accurately using the dial darkness settings. Be sure to follow the directions and burn off the oils left in the machine after manufacturing. It stinks to high heaven so open a window. Once the smell is gone it works great. I am surprised for the price I paid how nice this unit looks and operates.

    Perfectly good Toaster Oven

    I was looking for a toaster oven to basically toast things and occasionally do a little broiling (e.g. melt cheese on a sandwich). This one works fine for those things. I have never used it for oven types of cooking. The only things I don't like are its lack of a removable crumb tray and it doesn't automatically turn off when you open the door. Toasting is great - browns evenly on both sides and it's a good size. Excellent choice if you want a smaller oven and you don't need all the bells and whistles on more expensive units.

    I had bought a bigger conv. toaster earlier in the year and it wasn't meeting my needs. This little gem does just what I was looking for, It makes great toast and grille cheese. Top and bottom burner come on quickly and cook like they should. The dial settings are easy to use and seem to be very accurate. It browns beautifully. it has a small footprint. Perfect for a single person household.

    A good oven-toaster at a very reasonable price!

    This toaster toasts 4 slices of bread in just two or three minutes. The toaster setting was a little confusing as it is separate from the timer (oven) setting. The done-ness icons on the toaster setting knob are fairly accurate. I turn the knob 180 degrees for medium done toast. The oven also works well. It has both temperature and timer control knobs. There is a control knob to select Toast/Oven/Grill. A good oven-toaster at a very reasonable price!

    Well, this is my first toaster. That being said, this review might not stand well against those of the people that have owned more than this toaster. This is great for bagels, toast and frozen waffles or reheating pizza or apple pie or just about anything. The only problem that I have with it is that it states "4-Slice Oven" and if that is bread, I just don't see it. I caught this on sale for $19.99 so you really can't be it at that price.

    WE WERE limited to toaster that had vents on right side. Our 20 year old toaster was great, but died. The newer products have a different control system. Once we go used to it , it was fine.When you toast a bagel on the tray, the bottom gets toasted too. Only down side:, old toaster when you opened door power shut off At $20 is is a steal . It is well worth the $40 we paid

    This toaster oven was purchased at the very low price of $19.99 + tax when it was on sale. I have generally used this oven to toast bread and roast nuts. It accomplishes both tasks very well. My one minor annoyance is that the crumb tray does not fully slide out and separate from the oven. Instead it's hinged at the bottom with a small knob to pull the tray open.

    I love having a toaster oven and was looking to upgrade my 10+ year old one with something a little bit bigger. This ended up being perfect for what I had in mind. It's large enough to cook single serving pizzas, but not so big that it takes up too much counter space. The stainless steel finish gives it a high-end look for a great price.

    IT IS A GREAT TOASTER AND OVEN. IT DOES WHAT IT IS SUPPOSED TO DO. THE SIZE IS JUST RIGHT FOR THE AVERAGE KITCHEN. THE LESS BULKY SIZE MAKES IT A GREAT CHOICE FOR A FAMILY OF 3. YOU CAN STORE IT AWAY IN A CABINET IF YOU LIKE. THIS UNIT TOASTS BREAD WITH EASE AND EVENLY. I ALSO USED IT TO REHEAT OVEN ROASTED CHICKEN AND IT CAME OUT WONDERFUL.

    I purchased this product because I wanted a toaster but also wanted a toaster oven. It gets both jobs done. Not bad for the price and it doesn't take up too much space. The only reason I'm giving this product 3 stars is because when I am toasting bread there is smoke that comes out of the top of the oven which has me a little on the defense.

    I purchased this when it was one of Best Buy's Deal of the Day sale. What a fantastic great buy! It has so many uses, but my favorite is pizza muffins! I definitely recommend this little toaster oven if you have limited space. Great for those single frozen pizzas too!

    I bought this toaster oven because of its small size. I have a very small kitchen with very little counter space and even less storage. Most toaster ovens are larger... this one is just perfect! It works very well and is easy to operate. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase!

    I read the reviews on this toaster and having a shoe string budget, decided to take the plunge. I couldn't be anymore pleased with the purchase. Basic functionality required for a toaster oven with various degree settings. Save your money and get this instead.

    My last toaster stopped toasting on the top side, so picked this up instead. So far it's decent. Not the most even toast marks but it's pretty good. Heats up quick. Minus one star for not having a crumb tray on the bottom. Solve by putting a layer of foil cut to size.

    I bought this toaster oven because of previous reviews and because I needed a stand-in for my oven for the hot summer. It's performed beautifully so far, better even than the microwave for rewarming things like leftover pizza and biscuits and keeping them crisp. Great purchase!

    After using the toaster oven several days. I was finally able to get the new smell out of it. I think it was due to the black paint. Hopefully there is no toxicity now that there is no smell. This is when I finally started toasting. Even toasting on both sides. About 4 min. Great timer.

    I use this for basics and works really well. First I don't get it totally, but once you know how to calculate temperature and time depending on the food it's very useful. Not that big, so only works with small amounts of food.

    Heats up fast and looks slick. Easy to clean. I like the buttons and hand bars. I use it everyday to toast bagel n toast and it does a fantastic job. Definitely would buy this sharing and would recommend to others. It's a good product for the price for sure

    I was a bit surprised when I saw the box but decided to give it a try anyway. It'll fit a personal size pizza no problem, you can even squeeze in a 10", but that's about it. It heats up very fast which is a plus. Overall happy!
