Toaster Ovens

I need a toaster oven. The kind where you open the door and slide your food onto a mini rack or sheet. What to look for? Which features are must have? Which brands are the best bang for your buck? It doesn't have to be fancy WS or LST stuff...just Target or Walmart is fine!

  1. Well, I just bought an Oster, I think, at Target, 6 slice with convection, the convection oven works well, better than my old B&D under cabinet mount toaster oven. However, it is very slow and not very good at toasting bread. So, I think if you want a toaster, get a 4 slice toaster oven, recently heard praise here about the Panasonic Quartz toaster oven. If you want an oven, the Oster is fine, nice controls, good timer.
