I really like my Black & Decker TRO1000 Toaster Oven. I have been using this toaster oven for nearly two years and itís still going strong. I have never used this toaster over as a toaster because I have a good stand alone toaster that I use regularly.

I use this toaster oven at least three to four time a week and sometimes more. It does a great job of baking and broiling. I bought some bake ware thatís made especially for toaster ovens but when it arrived I was disappointed because all the pieces were made of non-coated aluminum. I donít like to cook in plain aluminum so I went on a hunt for stainless steel and porcelain bake ware that would fit in my toaster oven. It was a very long frustrating search. Most of the bake ware was either too long or too wide to fit inside of my toaster oven. I finally found a couple off glass and corning ware items that would fit, but I still havenít found a toaster oven sized baking pan in stainless steel or porcelain.

The dials on this toaster oven are very straight forward and simple to use. The oven temperature dial goes from 200 to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and it shows the equivalent temperatures in centigrade. Once the dial has reached the 500 degree point, it becomes a little harder to turn it further to the broil position. This is a good feature because it helps to prevent the user from accidentally broiling items that they want to bake at high temperatures. There is a small push button that puts the toaster oven into toasting mode and thereís a dial beneath it that can be set to light, medium, or dark, depending on how you want your toast. There's also a top brown setting that's good good for browning things like casseroles and pastries. This is the economy model so it doesnít have a timer like the more expensive models.

This toaster oven has a slide out crumb pan that catches toast crumbs, and drippings from baking and broiling. This makes cleaning this appliance easier, but thoroughly cleaning it is still a small chore. There is stainless steel trim on the inside of the oven that gets baked on grease and food splatters. I use a steel wool soap pad to clean the trim and it comes out like new. The rest of the interior has to be cleaned with warm soapy water and sometimes I have rub pretty hard to get some burnt on splatters off, but cleaning is not unseasonably difficult. The exterior is also cleaned with soapy water but some grease stains are nearly impossible to remove from the rough plastic finish on both sides of the toaster oven.

Itís really nice to be able to put in a couple of lamb chops and broil them to perfection in a few minutes without heating up a big oven and the entire kitchen. For baking small items like a chicken or meat loaf, or macaroni and cheese, itís absolutely great. This toaster oven has helped me to cook and eat healthier. Instead of frying a lot of foods, like bacon and breakfast sausage, I put them into my toaster oven, turn it to broil, and a few minutes later I have nearly fat free, crispy bacon, hamburgers, sausage, steaks, chicken, chops, ECT.

My biggest complaint about this toaster oven is itís interior size. If it were just a little larger inside, it could accommodate many standard sized bake ware items. Overall, I think this toaster oven is quite a bargain and almost a necessity for one or two person households.
