This is the one I have: http://www.amazon.com/Hamilton-Beach.../dp/B0039BJ3JG

I like it a lot. I had bought a couple of cheaper, smaller ones before this, but they were crap.

When the timer is up, it shuts itself off, it has convection, and it has a temperature probe for roasting meats to temp. Works great for us.

I love my Breville, so many uses, it's used at least twice a week. Yep, a bit pricey, but it is a workhorse.

When did we get them, PF? CG asked, and I don't remember.

Wow, has it been that long ago? I guess time flies whether or not you're having fun.

I'm going to keep my eye on the Breville for when my much used Cuisinart TO bites the dust. It's around 8 years old. I use it a couple of times a week and it's still going strong.

Like you Liz, I live alone - toaster ovens are great! Especially here in the desert when it's 110+ in the summer. I'll go days, even weeks, without turning on the big oven.

I'll consider it. A good one costs a lot for me, but wasting good money on a no good piece of crap is worse.

My T&T Cuisinart 'just keeps ticking'. I have my sights on a Breville for when it dies.
