Black+Decker TO1313SBD Toaster Oven-Review

Overview

The Black + Decker TO1313SBD toaster oven is a great choice for people who are short on counter space. It has four cooking functions and a 30-minute timer. It's also ideal for reheating food, as it often tastes a lot better than reheating food in a microwave.

The Black and Decker TO1303SB doesn’t have a convection feature, which is ideal for baking because it ensures heat is evenly distributed throughout the toaster oven. The lack of a convection feature may mean that food takes a bit longer to cook.

Black + Decker TO1313SBD Toaster Functions

Toaster

This toaster oven has four functions: Bake, Broil, Toast, and Keep Warm. The Toast setting requires the user to choose how light/dark they want their toast to be by using the Timer dial. The Timer dial has these symbols below to help you customize your toast, but it may take a few tries to get it just right for you.

30 Minute Timer

This oven has a 30-minute cooking timer, which is ideal for people who want to quickly cook a pizza or reheat leftovers. If you need to cook food for longer than 30 minutes, you can reset the timer or use the Stay-On Function.

The timer on the oven makes a ticking noise while your food cooks. After the timer has finished, it makes a bell sound to alert you. It's important to note that some users have found that the timer doesn't always turn off automatically after the timer has finished, so it's important to take your food out immediately and turn it off manually.

Stay-On Function

Functions

The 30-minute cooking timer is designed to alert you when your food is ready. If you need to cook for longer than 30 minutes, you can use the Stay-On Function.

Ease of Use

Easy to Clean

The toaster oven has a manual function that requires users to turn a dial to the desired temperature and then to the function they want. There is also a timer that can be set for up to 10 minutes.

The function dial on the toaster oven is easy to turn and can be mistakenly turned onto the Stay-On function, causing a potential fire hazard. To avoid this, it is important to take notice of where you turn the dial to when switching the toaster oven off.

Design

Three Dials

This product has three dials which can be used to set the time, temperature and cooking function. Some toaster ovens have buttons and an LCD screen, but people with conditions such as arthritis may find it hard to use these.

Writing Around Dials

The dials on the toaster oven have writing around them to indicate the temperature, cooking function, or timer. Some people have complained that the writing is too small and difficult to read.

Rack

The Cuisinart TOB-260N1 does not have an auto-eject rack, making it a little harder to remove food without burning yourself.

Warranty

The Black + Decker BDH2000PL is a cordless hand vacuum that comes with a two-year warranty. Customers have found the customer service to be helpful if they have any issues during the warranty period.

Accessories

Accessories

The included accessories with this toaster oven are a baking pan and a broiler pan. Some customers have complained that the pans stain easily, but this can be avoided by taking care not to put them in the dishwasher. Overall, the pans are made from good quality materials.

What We Liked:
  • The Black N Decker toaster oven is a great value for the price.
  • It comes with both a baking and broiling pan, and the stay-on function keeps your food warm until you're ready to eat.
  • You can also customize the toast setting to your liking.
  • The toaster oven is small enough to fit on any kitchen counter, and it has four cooking functions.
What We Disliked:
  • The Black N Decker Smart Oven has a 30-minute timer, and a complicated process to turn it on and use it.
  • However, the quality of the accessories is poor, and it does not have a convection feature.

Bottom Line

The Black + Decker Spacemaker toaster oven has mixed reviews, with people either loving it or hating it. People love how affordable and small it is, but they don't love the fact that it is difficult to use, that it is easy to accidentally turn the Timer dial to 'Stay-On', and how hot the handle gets.
