Toaster oven query

sueatmo | Mar 18, 2009 04:18 PM

I am thinking of buying a toaster oven, an appliance I have never owned or used, ever. The reasons I want to buy one are so i can toast more than 2 slices of bread at a time and so I can do small baking jobs without heating up the kitchen (such as toasting nuts, or roasting garlic.)

I checked Bed Bath and Beyond today and found 2 Cuisinarts which might fit the bill. I wonder if any Chowhounds out there own either model. What do you think of them? The 2 models I am interested in are: Model # TOB-60 and Model #TOB-195. I am leaning toward the first and least expensive. This is the model with dials on the side, not the model with the touchpad controls below.

I wonder if the convection works well, if the oven gets hot enough underneath to scorch my laminate countertop, and if the oven in general performs as expected.

Am I overlooking a better candidate?

I have not found many reviews about these ovens.

Thanks!
