Bottom Line

The Waring Pro Toaster Oven & Toaster gives customers two appliances in one. You can bake, roast and toast in the oven while preparing bread or bagels in the attached toaster. Owners also broil steaks, fish or burgers plus cook desserts, but say it takes time to learn how to use all the functions. The toaster's wide slots accommodate English muffins and bagels as well as bread.

Performance

Versatile, 2-in-1 appliance. The Waring Pro Toaster Oven & Toaster bakes, broils and toasts up to four slices of bread. At the same time, the attached toaster can brown two slices of bread, English muffins or bagels. Several owners make note of the oven's aluminized interior that makes it a good choice for those who are wary of nonstick materials.

Some users say the oven is slow, and others say the same of the toaster. A number of owners have trouble getting the toaster handle to stay down. The Waring Pro comes with a one-year warranty.

Ease Of Use

Easy-access controls. Dials at the front of this toaster/oven combo select the function and adjust the thermostat. A timer/toast shade control dial sets cooking time for up to 30 minutes and automatically turns off the oven. Reviewers say that understanding how to use the features takes some time.

Cleaning is easy, owners report: Simply use a damp, soapy cloth or sponge to wipe clean the exterior and interior. Crumb trays for both toaster and oven are a big help, although the trays and rack must be hand-washed.

Appearance

Attractive "retro" look. Some owners say the Waring Pro Toaster Oven & Toaster is too big and takes up a lot of countertop space, but others say it's too small and wish it could hold larger food items. Reviewers like its stainless steel "retro" look with rounded corners, and call it sturdy and durable.
