Bought this at local Sears, but returned it one day later. After unboxing and plugging it in, the screen showed 30 minute cook, I hit the start/stop button thinking it would clear the cooking time, but no, it just started cooking. After hitting the button several times, even holding it for a few seconds with no success at clearing the screen, I pulled out the manual. Found that after each use, either cook/broil/toast, you are instructed to unplug the unit. Seriously? However, after seeing how the controls work, I understand why. There is no way to clear the display, (like you would be able to do on a microwave) so it is always ready to either cook or toast. if you were to accidently hit the start button, it would start heating up. If you hold the button as instructed to, it doesn't clear to zero, it clears the current time back to the default time, which is 30 min for cook. If I want to change it to 5 min, I have to hit the arrow key repeatedly, and each time you hit any of the buttons, it sounds an extremely loud beep with each push. Seems trivial, but I am not sure why it needs to be THAT loud! (and was surprised no other reviewers mentioned this!)
This toaster oven has a perfectly timed toasting cycle for the perfect toast. The controls are all digital & easy to use. It's great for baking or toasting. The inside is a little larger than other brands. I searched for a toaster oven with push buttons, & this is perfect. It's very easy to clean. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

I bought this oven a little over a month ago, it works well though it is small. Not much height. It's easy to use and seems to be a good quality product.
I love this toaster I bought from the Sears home goods department. It is small and does not take up a lot of counter space but it is perfect for cooking or reheating small meals. In browns food just like your oven without having to heat up the entire kitchen. It also came with a pizza stone to reheat pizza just like it was freshly delivered.
its more smaller than u think, even the tray from my $20 black and deckar would not go inside it, was 1 inch wider and deeper, button feel cheap, but it turned on and seemed to work fine, if you got it cheap dont complain, it looks like it will do the el jobo...

Can't beat this for $20 after rebate. I've used it to make a variety of items, including pizza, chicken, broiling steak and more. If you're only cooking for one person, this is nice to have and much quicker than using the regular oven.
Uneven toasting is my biggest complaint. Burnt toast is not good even if it's only partial. Also misleading is that only the front of the toaster is stainless steel, the rest is black enamel. On the annoying side, why the heck do they have to sound four loud beeps when the toast is done. Could they add a mute button please? I returned this and got a cheap 30 dollar Black And Decker and I am much happier. One ding at the end of toasting is definitely better, especially at 6 am.
I was sick of my old B&D toaster oven burning the toast every morning. This, being digital, took the guess work out of it. It is easy for the kids to operate and is very stylish also.
We have this as a built in which was installed by our builder. I love it! Easy to use and food cooks or warms evenly. I use the Start button feature of automatically adding 30 seconds when I'm warming up a dish. The "speed" buttons for specific foods make cooking in a microwave much simplier.

Heats well, but buttons do not work for how they are described in manual. I cannot set the timer. And if I need it to cook longer, It shuts off. And if I want to shut it off earlier because food is done, the button is supposed to be pressed and then shuts off the machine, but that does not work. I have to pull out the plug to shut it off. Not sure if it is defective but the buttons do not work as the manual describes. Frustrating. I expected better from Kenmore.
We got this toaster oven on sell, and what a deal! It comes with a cooking pan, and a personal size pizza stone. It is easy to use which is important for kids. It is worth it at full price, and a steal on sell.
I feel bad even giving this thing one star, but you have to rate it in order to submit... Owned one of these for about two months. You would think, "Gee, I'll have some toast this morning." Only to find this worthless hunk of metal couldn't cause a fire let alone toast some bread. Difficult to program and no memory so every time you touch it you have to adjust it. Either buy a dial toaster oven or just do what we did, get a two slice toaster (although it isn't easy finding one with just a press and go feature anymore). When did we stop thinking a better mouse trap has be be created? Skip the technology and go basic!

I read the reviews. It is a matter of reading the book. Pizza stone calls to season 2 time with oil and heating it up between oiling.. Then every time you cook with stone you rub with olive oil. I use what oil I have and the Pizza slide off easily. The timer is ok but again the book tells you how to set it than after you practice a few times its easy. It times up to 30 minnues then shuts off. I find that suffecient. Usually 15 minutes is fine for.Pizza. I will test other item and have a great time doing so.
