POSITIVES:

The Oster TSSTTVXLDG Extra Large Digital Toaster Oven has many appealing features. Its best quality is its size: it will hold a 16 pizza, 14 slices of bread, or a 12-pound turkey. The Convection setting allows for even browning. The hot air circulates through the interior just like a full-sized oven, so meats come out juicy, crusts crispy, and vegetables tender. The convection feature means less cooking time and a lower oven temperature. This model preheats faster than a regular, full-size oven. It also cools off faster, which is nice in the summer. The transparent glass door allows you to keep an eye on the food, while not allowing heat to escape. Two buttons regulate the temperature and timer. The toast shade setting has 6 different shades from light to dark. Even a child can make perfect toast with this appliance.

NEGATIVES:

This toaster oven is HOT. The exterior, especially, heats up; so does the glass door. The Oster TSSTTVXLDG Extra Large Digital Toaster Oven requires 6 clearance on all sides, and you mustn't put insulation in contact with the outside of the unit. Where the handle attaches to the top of the door, it becomes very hot, necessitating the use of oven mitts or gloves. The handle is heavy, and the oven door tends to hit the counter when you open it, which may cause it to shatter the glass isn't shatterproof. On the plus side, the hot top surface of the model makes a handy plate warmer. The oven also tends to cook unevenly, becoming hotter in the rear, so you may have to rotate your pizza. The racks are not too strong and may bend with the weight of a roast. A few other, minor negatives: the thing takes up a lot of counter space.The clock tends to gain time and is unreliable. The timer can't be set for more than 90 minutes, so if you want to cook something, like a roast, longer, you have to reset it. The cord is short (24), and there is no light inside the oven. If you want to take a look at some other options before making a final decision, check out the Black & Decker TO1303SB 4-Slice Toaster Oven or the Cuisinart TOB-100 Compact Digital Toaster Oven Broiler.
