Expensive for a toaster oven for sure. In this case, you get what you pay for. No preheating required, even toasting and multiple settings to get it just the way you want it.
We purchased this for a small sandwich shop so we couldn't afford to have a toaster that heated unevenly or wasn't consistent with the toasted level as we need our sandwiches to be exactly the same each purchase. This oven does everything we hoped it would.
I cant attest to the longevity of the item yet but if it needs repairs I will post it here. We did do a lot of research on this model from other people and other sites and all the positive comments were all true, and the only bad thing anyone else had to say was replacement parts were expensive.
If you want easy to use settings, items cooked/toasted exactly the same, time after time with no preheating, then this is the toaster oven for you.
If money isn't a concern, then this should be your choice even if you only use it for toast in the morning with your coffee.
