I'm still searching for a decent toaster oven. I bought the top of the line Cuisinart about a year ago. The toast is only so-so...browns on the top but not the bottom. I use it mainly as an oven (it has a convection feature) and for that it's very good. It also broils altho I've never used that particular setting. My biggest complaint is that the white finish is chipping & cracking & turning from white to a dingy beige already so it looks like sh*t. There's only DH & I so no one is abusing it. Very disappointed.
I'm semi-tempted by the Panasonic TO ... read the mainly good reviews on Amazon ... it's great looking but it seems small & I'll want to use it as an oven just as I do the Cuisinart. However, the toast function is excellent according to the reviews but the oven maybe not so much (altho some seem to like it).
I'm looking for TO-input! Thanks!
