What Do Owners Say About The Oster TSSTTVMNDG?

 

The Good:

Interior Space of Oster TSSTTVMNDG

Large Interior Space – In my research, I found that this oven has almost the largest Interior in its price range. However, with large capacity this oven doesn’t cost much of your counter space and easily accommodates on your counter top with ease of use. Large capacity also provides an ease of cooking bigger meals and foods that need more space to fit in your regular toaster ovens.

Safe Door Handle – Owners love the design of door handle for the reason that although the body gets hot while operating like most other ovens, the door handle is perfectly safe to touch and your hands won’t get burned.

Versatile – Most owners praise this toaster oven for its high performance on its multifunction like toasting, baking, heating and defrosting. It does every job excellently. Its convection technology provides a good cooking experience where foods get cooked evenly and saves time and energy. Some owners replace their regular oven by this oven for defrosting something, toasting nuts, warming leftovers.

Digital Timer – The 90 minutes digital timer brings much convenience to owners. It allows you cooking continuously without setting the timer again and again or manually shutting off the oven since it is an automatic timer and the oven turns off automatically once the time runs out.

 

What Could Be Better:

Hot Housing – The unit housing being of stainless steel tends to get hot when working, which an oven is meant to be, but still poses a risk of burns, so one needs to be careful while operating this product when it is still hot or working. Use the safe door handle to avoid these problems. Some owners also suggest that it would be nice if the unit had a door switch to turn off the convection fan because when the door was opened it would blow the hot air out.

Electrical Hazard – This oven comes with a two wire powering system without a ground option making it a risky option in case any electrical short circuit occurs. They think this is a serious drawback of this product. However, some owners point out it is caused by incorrect use because this oven has a polarized plug. Polarized plug is used to keep the electricity going into the appliance where its’ supposed to go and keeps user from getting shocked while touching and using it. So if you use the oven in the right manner that it was designed to be then you will not be shocked.

 

Who Should Buy Oster TSSTTVMNDG Digital Large Capacity Toaster Oven?

Having a large family or parties and get-togethers more often? This indeed is the right choice for you.

 

Who Should Not Buy This Toaster Oven?

Consider this product carefully if you have an open kitchen counter since it tends to go hot and owners point out its exposed back poses more burns and fire risks especially if there are any minors around.

 

Summary:

Overall it’s a good product with multiple cooking options, extensive timer and temperature, digital controls. It is enhanced with convection cooking technology and lit interior compartment with multiple racking options. Durable stainless steel housing and enamel treated rack and pan tends to make it a strong product.
