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.
