For years my mother had one of these. In the summer time when it was too hot to heat up the kitchen, she would use it as a hot plate. After she died, I took posession (SP?) of it, then my sister took it and now her oldest daughter has it.

All the inexpensive toaster ovens I've owned will toast the top of the bread fine, but the underside only gets half toasted.

Speaking of toasters, I own a Cuisinart one but those little buttons labeled Bagel, Defrost and Reheat do absolutely nothing.

We've had 3 toaster ovens over the years. When the 3rd one malfunctioned, we didn't bother to replace it, although they were very convenient, I prefer the pop-up toaster for toasting. Very occasionally I use a grill (broiler in American-speak), but you have to keep turning the bread to make sure it toasts evenly.

It is huge.
I read an article today that this holiday season, $16 billion dollars will be spent on unwanted gifts.

When the kids were all small, I got tired of the fights as to who was going to get their toast first. So I purchased a four slicer. Enough toast on the first cooking so that every kids got at least one slice while waiting for their second piece.
