Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Easy to access the interior
Its door is designed to make it easy to access its interior. To open, you roll the door to the back, and thanks to its quarter-circle shape, which opens up the front entirely and the top partly, it gives you a lot of open space to get your food, add ingredients, clean the interior, and so on.
Pro Very convenient door design
The door is very convenient to operate and saves a lot of counter space. Instead of opening outwards, which leaves the door hanging or extending beyond the counter top, its door rolls to the back. The quarter-circle door design allows you to add stuff into the toaster and slide its crumb out tray easily.
Pro Does not take much space
It has a very small footprint, making it perfectly sized for small kitchens.
While other toaster ovens cost over $100 (even $600 or more), this compact appliance costs only around $30 for small baking, toasting, broiling, and reheating needs. This is definitely an affordable option for your toaster oven needs.
Pro Multifunction cooker
You can bake, toast, and broil using this appliance.
Pro Spacious enough
Although it is slightly smaller than other high-end toaster ovens, it can fit a 9-inch pizza and able to toast 4 slices at once.
Pro Available in two colors: gray and red
There are two colors to choose from: gray or red. You can select whichever complements your kitchen.
Con Timer has only 30 minutes maximum duration
If you are cooking food that requires over 30 minutes of cooking time, this can be a problem because the timer is only up to 30 minutes. For food requiring around an hour of cooking time, this will be not much of a problem because you need to add more time only once, but for food requiring over 1 hour of cooking time, that would mean resetting the timer two or more times in one cooking. That can be tiresome to do because you have to keep one ear on the oven timer all the time to make sure that you reset the timer as soon as it is up.
Con Loud ticking sound
You can hear the timer's ticking from afar. It is quite loud and can be annoying.
