Breaking it down

Performance

Convection-quality cooking, without convection. In one professional test, the Panasonic NB-G110P Flash Xpress Toaster Oven held its own against a field of convection toaster ovens, all of which cooked food faster than traditional toaster ovens. It needs no preheating, instantly reaching whatever temperature you set it to. Instead of convection, this Panasonic toaster oven uses infrared technology that users say does a beautiful job, in particular, of browning and putting a crust on food. The NB-G110 also cooks through very well, leaving no cold or frozen spots even in tough challenges -- like a frozen block of lasagna. Quite a few reviewers wish it had a dedicated broil function, but most have found various ways around that.

Ease of use

Very simple. We saw no complaints from users about any ease-of-use issues with the Panasonic NB-G110P Flash Xpress Toaster Oven. All say it's very simple and intuitive; and the six presets for toast, waffles, rolls, pizza, quick cook and hash browns make it even easier. In one professional test, it receives an Excellent rating for ease of use. It has an on/off button and you have to turn it on before you use it -- which is unusual -- and then you need to remember to turn it back off. However, it does have an auto shutoff that turns off the heat when the cooking is done. To clean, just wipe down with a wet cloth.

Appearance/durability

Small capacity. Possibly the most important thing to know about the Panasonic NB-G110P Flash Xpress is that it's a compact toaster oven. In fact, the only real complaint we saw about this appliance is that it's small, with a cavity that has limited height. It cannot cook a whole chicken (even a small one), or bake anything larger than about 9-inches in diameter. However, while that's a "con" in the eyes of some owners, even more say that's a "pro" and why they opted for this toaster oven in the first place -- it takes up less space in their kitchen. Most love the looks of the NB-G110 too, describing it as "funky," "space-aged," or "high tech." This is the silver version, but it also comes in white as the Panasonic NB-G110PW (Est. $120).
