5.0 out of 5 stars Love this toaster oven April 3 2014
By Miriam
Verified Purchase
I was intrigued by the way the door went up instead of down and it has proven to be a great toaster oven. It is really easy to put things in and take things out when it gets hot. I wish it had a control that let you have only the top or only the bottom element on but both are always on - great for toast and pizza, not so good for small cakes etc. But I love it's size and we mostly use it for toast.

3.0 out of 5 stars Compact, Multi-purpose Small Appliance ... Sept. 26 2013
By delicateflower152 - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
The "Hamilton Beach 31334 Easy Reach Toaster Oven, Metallic" is a compact, multi-purpose small appliance that may prove useful in your kitchen. Having a footprint that is no larger than the Kitchenaid KMT400 toaster, it should fit into most appliance garages as well as into standard kitchen cabinets having higher shelves.

With the rolling door closed, the "Hamilton Beach 31334 Easy Reach Toaster Oven" measures approximately 16 " wide X 8 " high X 11 " deep. With the rolling door opened, this small appliance measures approximately 16 " wide X 10 " high X 10" deep.

The door that rolls up, rather than swinging down or out, makes this small appliance well suited for more narrow countertops. Easy removal for cleaning is another plus.

The "Hamilton Beach 31334 Easy Reach Toaster Oven" does a very nice job toasting whole grain, artisan breads. The interior - approximately 10 " X 9" - easily accommodates odd sizes and thicknesses of breads and rolls. The description states this toaster oven will accommodate four slices. It seems those slices would have to be smaller than average or would have to touch each other in order for four to fit. The darkness indicator dial is small and somewhat difficult to read; it would improve this product if it were clearer and more precise.

Baking in the "Hamilton Beach 31334 Easy Reach Toaster Oven" is a somewhat hit-or-miss proposition. The lack of precision on the timer and temperature controls has an impact on both baking time and product appearance. You will have to experiment to determine the appropriate time and temperature settings in order to produce acceptable results.

If you have only a small item to brown, the broiling function may be useful. However, you will want to watch your food carefully to prevent burning - another downside of the less than precise control knobs.

All three functions on the "Hamilton Beach 31334 Easy Reach Toaster Oven" cause this small appliance's exterior to become extremely hot. Air temperature around the unit went from 77.5 degrees to 88 degrees when I toasted bread. The surface temperature went from 77.5 degrees to 285 degrees! I used a Thermapen Instant Read Thermometer to measure the temperatures. The sides as well as the top might easily burn one's skin. Should anyone, particularly children and the elderly, who both have delicate skin, accidentally touch the exterior after the unit has been on they could easily sustain a severe burn.

The "Hamilton Beach 31334 Easy Reach Toaster Oven" might be suitable for some seeking a compact toaster oven. However, individuals, who desire an appliance having more accurate controls and better insulation, would do well to look at other models of toaster oven.

4.0 out of 5 stars Toasts exceptionally well Sept. 24 2013
By Kathleen San Martino - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This toaster oven is great for small jobs. The picture of the pizza cooking in this toaster oven is very deceiving because only a small personal-sized pizza no larger than 9" x 10" will fit. The depth (front to back) is 11-1/2" if you include the handle and knobs on back; width is 15-1/2"; and height is 9". The cord length is 33".

This toaster will easily fit four slices of bread. I toasted two slices of rye bread and the toast came out fantastic; crisp and dry the way rye bread usually toasts. It was toasted evenly on both sides except that the bottom sides of the bread had the rack lines, which is expected. It actually toasted better than any actual toaster I've ever owned and I always disliked using a toaster oven to toast bread.

Below are the PROS and CONS from my perspective.

PROS
It has a small footprint.

The top comes off easily for washing.

The unit's roll top makes it easy to reach what is cooking.

The price is reasonable in my opinion.

It toasts very well.

It comes with a crumb tray, rack, and baking pan that can be easily removed and cleaned.

A broiling option is available by using the high rack position in the oven and selecting the broil feature.

CONS:
The dials use mechanical timing so for the duration of the toasting cycle, there's a ticking sound from the timer.

The timer always has to be rotated beyond 10 minutes and then turned back to the time desired if the cooking, broiling, or toasting time is less than 10 minutes.

The timer has a maximum capacity of 30 minutes so if what's being cooked requires a longer time, it will have to be set two or three times during the cooking process.

The silver "paint" on the dial faceplate is slightly bubbled on the unit I received for review.

In summary, I think this is a great buy for those who need a toaster oven for small jobs or do not have much kitchen space. It's also cute, squat, and retro looking.

1.0 out of 5 stars Recall this product immediately! Door shattered during use! Jan. 29 2014
By Wilton Mui - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
So I bought this only 1 month ago! I was heating up some food in the toaster oven at 425 deg F for 10 minutes. While I was in the shower, I heard a little explosion and shattering glass. I rushed out and found that the toaster oven door shattered and sent glass flying about 5 feet away. Yes I will take a refund, no I don't want to pay for the return shipping, and no I do not want a replacement. And yes I filed a report with the Consumer Product Safety Commission. On a less serious note, my dinner was ruined, so it'd be nice if I could get a gift certificate to Chipotle or something.

2.0 out of 5 stars Warning - Big gap around the oven door, so not good for baking. No toast-setting , so not good for toasting Oct. 17 2013
By Pat - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
(1) There is a big gap around the oven door when the door is closed. I think oven doors should close better for baking. This is part of the design of this model, I can' t imagine why.

(2) You have to reset the toast setting every time you toast. This is part of the design. The persnickety process for resetting the toast setting (every time you make toast!) is not something you can do early in the morning without putting on your glasses. You have to turn the dial smoothly clockwise past a quarter-turn, then force the knob back counter-clockwise until the almost invisible indicator arrow points somewhere in between the 45-degree angle, black toast, and the 30-degree angle, raw toast. You may get perfect toast one time, but you cannot save the setting for the next time.

I can't see myself trying to teach my houseguests to use this toaster oven. An eight-year-old child can use most toaster ovens, but cannot exert enough force to turn the knob counter-clockwise on this one.

Apart from the functionality, the toaster oven is very cute, and the grey color goes perfectly with stainless steel. The big viewing window is nice, so that you can diligently watch the 5-minute toasting process, which you will have to do, since there is no usable toast setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Toaster Oven May 4 2014
By Vicky - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Okay......This Hamilton Beach Model 31334 was $29.99 and was shipped for FREE! Let me repeat that - - $29.00 and shipped for FREE! After reading the reviews, I thought, "WTF" and ordered it. The merchant was great - the oven arrived literally in a day and a half. No damage.

I'm not a newbie when it comes to toaster ovens. Both my parents worked and retired from Black and Decker and of course, we had B&D's "new fangled" toaster oven back in the 60's. With their employee discount, my Mom always had the current model - passing the rest down to their RV, the "rec room" as well as my brother, me and assorted friends and relatives. So I am more than familiar with toaster ovens - and that's all I wanted - a toaster oven and I wanted it to fit in my appliance garage which is 14" deep. The Hamilton Beach Easy-Reach Toaster Oven filled all my wants and needs.

The measurements have been stated in other reviews, however I measured the actual baking rack and it is 9 1/8" wide and 10 7/8" deep. Hopefully the included photos will provide additional information.

1. The oven fits perfectly in the appliance garage.

2. Of course, the baking rack does not pull out automatically when the door is opened, however you can see that I have pulled the rack out and it is still secure within the oven.

3. As for the interior BAKING space, I have stacked two k-cups on the baking pan and there is still plenty of space. (I didn't measure because I am a visual person and this works better in my opinion)

4. Included is also a photo of the oven while on. You can see the heating elements and what I like is that they are protected by a metal "shroud" not just on the area where food might spatter on them, but also on the other side which means they are fully protected if something does spill - it will not spill on the heating element so clean up will be easy.

5. Several reviews have mentioned that the temperatures and times are hard to read on the knobs. I have tried to get a clear photo, however, the overhead kitchen light creates a glare over the top knob. What you will actually see is that the top knob indicators will be as clear as the bottom knob. As for complaints that temps are hard to set.......Geez, if you want to make toast - turn the top knob all the way to the right and set the indicator ON THE PICTURE OF A PIECE OF TOAST then turn the lower knob to the right to THE PICTURES OF A LIGHT TOAST OR DARK TOAST.

6. Several reviews have mentioned that the door has a gap on the side. What I did was "tweak" the lower edge of the door and now there is no gap. Just use a little "American Ingenuity" to make a very minor adjustment.

7. So far the oven has toasted PERFECT toast and bagels, and roasted a pan of yummy potatoes that were perfectly browned. The oven heats up like my other toaster ovens did, I didn't get much older waiting for my toast!

8. Timer Ticking: For Pete's Sake - it TICKS while operating and it also DINGS when it's finished. I guess at 63 years old, my hearing is not as sensitive as some, but then again I don't have my head on the counter top in front of the toaster, either!

9. The best thing is the way the toaster door opens. When opened, it is totally out of the way which allows for the actual top of the toaster to be recessed somewhat so that the top of your hand doesn't get burned if you reach in. To me, this is a major improvement in the actual design of toaster ovens and a great design if the toaster oven needs to set on a shelf.

10. By the way, the "Chef's Planet 401 Nonstick Toaster Oven Liner" sold by Amazon fits perfectly on the pull out crumb tray with no cutting or sizing and the crumb tray pulls out easily for cleaning.

Long story short: My husband says I over researched and over thought this purchase and about drove him crazy. I feel that I made the best purchase that fit my wants and needs, and does exactly what a toaster oven should do and what the manufacturer featured in it's ad/product description says it will do.
