"It's a classic counter top addition and is sure to add versatility and efficiency to your daily cooking needs."
The TO1303SB from Black+Decker is an extremely affordable, functional and reliable 4-slice toaster oven that’s compact in size and in price. Costing between $20 and $30, this toaster oven is one of the cheapest you can buy, but that’s not to say it scrimps on quality. Black+Decker is one of the leading brands in the field of small kitchen appliances, so you can rest assured that you will receive nothing short of excellence if you buy this high-quality toaster oven. It's a classic counter top addition and is sure to add versatility and efficiency to your daily cooking needs.
The stylish appearance of the TO1303SB is thanks to its sleek stainless and black finish. Durability has been factored into the design, with stainless steel being the sturdiest material to make small kitchen appliances like toaster ovens, stand the test of time. With such a simple but sophisticated finish, the TO1303SB will have no problem blending into your kitchen and will complement any interior design. This toaster oven comes with a small footprint, measuring just 14.5 x 8.8 x 10.8 inches and weighing 7.5 pounds, so it’s little enough to fit in smaller sized kitchens where countertop space might be minimal. The TO1303SB also comes with a sizeable durable glass window to clearly see your food during the cooking process, which further highlights Black+Decker’s efforts to bring you a robust, top-quality toaster oven.
The curved interior can fit up to four slices of toast which isn’t as much as the usual 6-slice toast capacity from other toaster ovens on the market, but it’s still a useful quantity to toast in one go, especially from such a compact appliance. The exterior of the TO1303SB is easy to clean, and the three dials located on the front of the toaster oven are sleek and comfortable to use. There is also a removable crumb tray which is located at the front of the toaster oven for better usability, as most high-quality toaster ovens have. Finally, this toaster oven also comes with a red indicator light which glows red when the appliance is switched on, which is a simple but effective way to let you know when it’s off or on, saving you money and energy efficiency.
At such an affordable price, you’ll be pleased to know that the TO1303SB toaster oven comes with numerous features that give its more expensive competitors a run for their money. Firstly, this toaster oven isn’t a convection oven like most others on the market; instead, it uses Black+Decker’s exclusive EvenToast Technology, which (you guessed it) evenly toasts up to four slices of bread at a time. This process improves heat distribution inside the toaster oven, to give up to 30% more even toasting than leading brands on the market. This is impressive stuff from Black+Decker and shows you don’t have to follow the crowd to make something amazing. If you want a toaster oven that uses this technology to give the perfectly even toasted bread, then the TO1303SB is well worth considering just on that basis, not to mention the price.
This toaster oven comes with four cooking functions which are broil, bake, toast and keep warm. This last function is an excellent one to have as it gives you the ability to keep your food at optimum temperature until you’re ready to tuck in, something which other toaster oven models don’t have. Although there are only four options to choose from when it comes to cooking options, you can still cook anything you want, so you get to decide how long you cook the food. Although it isn’t jam-packed with highly technical features and numerous cooking options, it’s exceptionally good value for money and still delivers on quality cooking and premium design.
Ease of Use

Black+Decker have included a toast rack, bake pan and broil rack with this toaster oven, so you have everything you could need to start cooking with it. The compact size of this toaster oven probably means it’s unlikely it will fit any of your regular trays and racks in, but the beauty is you just don’t need to! The TO1303SB has been designed to be as easy to use as possible, so once you’ve got the hang of it, it will provide you with endless cooking use. It comes with three dials located on the front of the toaster oven; the top one is for temperature, the middle one is for cooking function, and the lower one is where you can set the timer and optimum toastiness. They do look a little confusing to begin with, but you’ll get used to them in no time. This toaster oven is also easy to keep clean because of the smooth finish that can be wiped clean, as well the removable crumb tray that means you can clear it away before it starts to burn.
