The Black & Decker TO1303SB 4-Slice Toaster Oven is a kitchen counter classic, which allows you to get your cooking done perfectly, even when in a hurry. This toaster oven measures 10 x 15.5 x 8.4 inches, and weighs about 8.9 pounds. This toaster oven is reasonably capable and is the best alternative to a full-sized oven.

You can use it to toast bread relatively even, or re-heat your food items. You can also use it effectively as a broiler for small food items. Making toast items in the Black & Decker TO1303SB 4-Slice Toaster Oven is more exciting as compared to using a traditional toaster.

 

Features

 

This toaster oven has a number of welcoming features and functions. It has a 30 minute timer and exclusive toasting technology. Its internal space is efficient and it allows you to cook in four different modes. The following features enhance the efficiency of the Black & Decker TO1303SB 4-Slice Toaster Oven:

  • 30-minute timer with stay-on function – This feature allows you to set the most appropriate cooking time for your menu items, and cook exactly to your specifications. Once your food is cooked, the timer automatically goes off to prevent any possible cases of burned food.
  • Exclusive even toast technology – Allows you to prepare your menu items in the most appropriate manner, without having to worry about the quality of your toasts, bakes, or broils.
  • Four modes of cooking – You can warm, broil, toast or bake your foods using this toaster oven. When using the warm and broil mode, only the top heating elements are used. However, the bake and toast mode uses both heating elements. The broil and bake functions are enhanced by the inclusion of a baking pan and the broil rack.
  • Efficient internal space – You can prepare up to four slices of bread, or a 9” pizza. The huge internal space makes the cooking process very efficient since you don’t have to cook several times in small amounts.

 

Advantages

  • Easy to use with the three dials – function, time, temperature – that are easy to set, since the toaster oven is accompanied by a quick start sheet to guide new users. These dials are appropriately positioned on the toaster oven, to match their intended function.
  • The removable crumb tray located at the bottom, the sliding rack and the drip tray positioned below the rack are easy to clean.
  • You can use this toaster oven for small baking and broiling needs, especially for a small number of people. Since it consumes less power when compared to the large electric oven, you will cut on your energy bills.
  • The short power cord measuring about 2’ long enhances safety levels when the toaster oven is in use.

Despite the merits of this toaster oven, some users have reported how the handle of the toaster gets loose quickly within a short period of use.

Black and Decker does a great job in designing toaster ovens and other small appliances. Specifically, the Black & Decker TO1303SB 4-Slice Toaster Oven is designed to take up minimum space on your counter top but still, provide sufficient cooking space. This oven does a decent job on warming, toasting, baking, and broiling your food items and comes adequately priced.
