Pros:Even toasting and cooking, deep and wide cavity.

Cons:Tough to install and controls don't allow for fine tuning toasting times.

The Bottom Line: A good addition to the kitchen, but there are probably better out there.


We had a Black and Decker under the cabinet mounted toaster oven for many years and absolutely loved it. We never once had a problem with it until the knobs broke and we had to use a binder clip to set the oven temperature. It was time for a new one and Black and Decker had recently released this new model.

So far, mixed reviews.

First, the positive.
1) Heating: It's a powerful toaster oven with a quick heat up time and steady, even heat throughout. I no longer get burnt patches where the heating elements are hotter than in other places.
2) Size: it has a very deep and wide tray--about 3 inches deeper that the one we replaced without a noticeable increase in space used in the kitchen. The toaster oven measures approximately 19-4/5 by 12-8/9 by 15-1/5 inches
3) Space Savings: as advertised, getting the toaster off the counter and placing it under the cabinet is very convenient.
4) Cleaning: glass door is easy to wipe down and the drop out catch tray can be cleaned quickly. This oven stays much cleaner than our previous version.

The Downside
1) Very tough to install--the instructions are a pain, the measurments aren't easy to follow and the holes don't line up with the previously installed holder. Once the bracket is in, I spent ten minutes trying to get the toaste to snap into place--I thought I was going to end up with duct tape holding it up.
2) Poor Controls: there is no simple 'darker vs ligher' setting, but rather it's controlled by the amount of time you wish to leave it in there. The toast timer has 5 minute increments marked on it, which makes it very difficult to set the oven to toast, say, a piece of bread. So as long as you don't want to do somethign wild, like make toast, it's fine.

Overall, we're pretty happy with the purchase, but hope Black and Decker improves this model in the coming years (but doesn't change the size so the old bracke still works).
