Black & Decker Kitchen Tools 6 Slice Convection Toaster Oven
Replaces my regular oven
Used for the first time today. Whisper quiet when I used the convention fan feature and rotisserie together. Much quieter then my old toaster oven. The 450 degree max temperature is hot enough to bake French fries. Because this oven will hold a 12 pizza dish, my regular oven is now obsolete so now I will use this space to store my pots & pans. There is no oven light but at this point I don't see a need for one. I highly recommend this oven hope to see a drop in my power bill.

Another quality purchase
I used this product to make delicious roast chicken all the time. It tastes even better than restaurants'. It's very easy to use and keep the cooking under control. I am glad I bought one.

Power cord too short
Power cord won't even reach the other side of the unit. It will barely reach an outlet 21 inches away. Rotisserie will not do a large chicken. More like a Cornish hen or a pigeon. Only reason we got this is because it was $69. So if you don't plan on using the rotisserie and have on outlet close by this may be ok.

Worst small appliance ever
I have purchased may Black and Decker products in the past but this one is a real piece of junk. The metal is so thin that the heat reflectors below the bottom elements bend and the interior aluminum creaks and grows when heating . The convection fan is real noisy it vibrates and rattles . The extra loud digital beep is real annoying when setting time and temperature. The idea of using cheaper and thinner metal is a real bad one. I would not recommend this product to anyone. This one is going back for a refund.

I purchased one at half price which I consider a great value. The first one I had to return becuase the glass door closes leaving a 3mm gap. It was a truly no hassle return and I got another one within 3 minutes. Kudos Canadian Tire!
We've been using this almost every day for two months now, and our conventional oven has stayed idle ever since 'cos this convection oven is large enough to handle our everyday needs for a family of five.
The hi-tech looking buttons look daunting but my 88-year old dad have learned to master them within 3 days.
The top and sides of the oven feel hot to the touch, but I guess this is the same phenomenon for toaster ovens in this price range. We use the hot oven top to keep other food warm before they are served to make full use of the heat energy dissipated there.
We have since recommended another friend to buy this item while it's on sale again.

Pretty good, except for baking cakes
I bought this oven mainly for two reasons: as a way to quickly warm food, because my husband and I have declared war on microwaves, and because it's just the two of us, so why the heck would I use the big conventional oven when I can save tons of energy with this little one?
As for warming food, toasting and unfreezing, this oven is sensational! It warms pretty fast, and has tons of useful tools and commands.
The electronic panel is a big advantage, since you can easily set the function and the timer - and the oven will warn you when it has finished preheating or when the timer runs out. It also allows you to easily control the temperature.
The downside of this oven is the baking function. It has worked pretty well for meatloaf and cookies, but when it comes to cakes... It doesn't cook evenly, so that the side is cooked, the outside is nearly burned, and the middle remains liquid. I've tried different cake moles, so it's really the oven. Since we bought this on special for half the price, it was still a very good purchase, considering all the other things it does well.
I haven't tried the rotisserie yet, looking forward to that.
As for design, it's really neat, comes with tons of accessories and it does take quite some space, but it's not that bad (it's smaller than a microwave, anyway).

Great Product for the Price
I bought this 1/2 price and have been very pleased. It is heavily used in my house as it is our primary oven for cooking. Often used 2 or 3 times a day for everything from toast to rotisserie chicken it cooks great every time.
I have used the rotisserie for chicken 3 times now. You must use the weights recommended in the manual so the chicken will be the correct size to rotatle properly. I had a slightly larger chicken in and as it rotated it touched the top burner and I had to cook it in a roasting pan instead.
There are only two very minor issues I found compared with previous toaster ovens I have owned. As others have mentioned the cord is very short. It is on the lower left corner (when facing the oven) and doesn't even reach to the right side of the oven. If your outlet is immediately behind or just to the left of the oven you will need to use an extension cord (as I did# as my plug is to the right of the oven.
Also, none of the buttons have temperatures listed, only icons of things like bagels, pizza, cake, toast etc. Until you get used to what these icons mean as far as temperature and time you may want to keep the manual handy. Temperature and time can be adjusted easily.
The rotisserie function and the convection fan work great. People commenting that the convection fan doesn't work may not realize that the fan is only used in the "Bake" #cake icon) function.
Overall this is a great product and I have recommended it to others.

This toaster oven has exceeded my expectations, having used many different brands and models this one has impressed me the most. I've never seen a toaster oven heat up so fast and the one push functions are really convenient. I bought this to replace a brand new one that I wasn't happy with. There are pros and cons but overall this is a great product and I'm pleased with my purchase.

I've had it for a couple of weeks now and have used it many times. The first night I actually used the rotisserie with great success. It is a bit finicky but that would be the same with any rotisserie...just takes practice to get it turning evenly.
The convection oven works great. I just wish it was a bit quieter.
