We toast 6++ bagels daily in the pop up toaster section. We use the oven for roasting nuts, afternoon snacks, personal-size batches of cookies, etc. PRO: No ding to report cooking is finished. My only wish is that we could toast 4 slices at once. <br /><br />It is compact yet versatile. Red is a fun color too. We owned this for 5-6 years before it finally just died with a power surge in our kitchen.
