Toaster ovens are considered an almost essential kitchen staple in homes all across the world. The Black & Decker 4-Slice Toaster Oven (model # TO1332SBD) is a great addition to any kitchen, especially for people who are constantly on the go.
This Black & Decker model comes with a great feature called Even Toast, which is a technology that improves the distribution of the interior heat so that the food you’re warming gets the right amount of heat all around.
Because it has a curved interior this helps with that even distribution of heat. The curved interior also allows you to fit in four slices of toast at a time so you can make more at once.
This is especially helpful if you have a large family or have guests over. This toaster oven can also heat a pizza that’s up to nine inches in diameter. Or it can heat up an eight inch square cake.
So that means, you can make a main meal as well as a delicious dessert! The toaster oven comes with broil, toast, keep warm, and bake options. It also has a half hour timer, which can even stay on longer if you need it to.
This allows for longer baking times and keeps your food warm if you can’t get it out of the toaster oven as soon as it’s done. You can set the timer and the oven will signal a sound when the timer does happen to run out.
There’s a light indicator for when the oven is in use and also features an audible sound the oven lets out when the food is cooked. This model has a maximum temperature of 450 degrees.
You can safely use the higher temperatures without overheating the food. As an added safety feature, the exterior of the oven won’t get too hot for you to touch either. Although the exterior door becomes warm when the oven is in use, the door handle remains cool.
Included in the toaster oven is a broil rack, but it’s not adjustable. The oven also comes with a bake pan that’s removable. Clean up is made easy with a removable crumb tray that helps to keep crumbs off your counter.
This Black & Decker model comes with a two-year warranty. The cord is relatively short, which is great for those with little kids because it makes it more difficult to be pulled off the counter.
The door of the toaster oven is easy to open and close, but it doesn’t have a latch or make a noise when it shuts, so it needs to be checked to make sure that it’s completely shut.
The oven is compact and fits nicely on a counter, even in little kitchens. It’s also lightweight, which makes it easy to move around on counters or put out of sight when not in use.
The toaster heats up plenty of different frozen foods, including waffles, chicken nuggets, pizza, and more. However, for some frozen foods, a bit of baking time may need to be added.
