hi anne, there are 2 elements on the bottom, both elements heat up when [ toast ] setting is picked,

Bushrat

Country Of Manufacture:
MADE IN CHINA



PRO's:
Size 9 Litres so good for snacks or single meals
Footprint reasonable size, fits well on Kitchen bench
Styling is OK, modern appearance
Weight is very light and easy to move
Easy to clean
Non slip feet work really well
Well Packed with no transit damage

CONS:
1: BUILD; Oven door has no "stop"on it, and the instructions warn not to let the door drop open as this will distort the doors sealing capability. Has a baking dish/tray that sits on a rack, so one would not be able to grill in the usual manner without getting grease and droppings all over the bottom part of the unit (if the tray was not used) The top rear element seems to glow bright red, the top front dull red, and the bottom two elements get hot but no radiant heat at all (see *2 below)
2: COOKING; I bought one yesterday, and bottom elements get warm but not glowing hot enough to toast. Had a pie in the oven for 25 minutes, (cold but not frozen ) as a test, and it was only just warmed. not hot, so I had to finish it off in my large oven. Tonight I baked a potato ( cut into smallish pieces of about 35mm) for the required time at the suggested setting, cooked, but outside was a brown rubbery leather like disaster. During the last 10 minutes took out the spud, and attempted to grill a lamb cutlet and a rissole, again following settings stated in book, some parts burned black, some parts cooked ok. Edible, but only just, took a LONG time and had to be watched at all times. Last test, a slice of toast - set it up as per instructions for toast and stood and watched as the toast cooked (very slowly) to perfection, alas, only on one side.
3: Elements turn on and off constantly, even when on "grill" setting, giving very uneven cooking.



I will not be wasting any more time on this, as in my experience, having been cooking well for over 60 years, it is not anywhere near up to scratch and it will be returned for a refund.
So heartily fed up with buying things that do not work, and then having to go to the trouble and expense of driving back to the store to return them, I have been using Sunbeam appliances for most of my life, but will not be buying anymore .... I at least discovered that my dog enjoys bread toasted on one side.......Zero Stars I am afraid!

Why does it not toast properly on the bottom and why does the window fog up with condensation? Unit is brand new.

I don't know why it's not toasting equally on both sides. Maybe move your toast down one level or maybe your unit is faulty? Condensation is caused when moisture is released when food is heated up, especially in the case of frozen items. You cannot stop that.

You need to ask engineers that question. All I can tell you is it took a lot longer to heat up on even the high settings on temperature knob than my previous model before this one. I had it on really high to heat up a meal that was in fridge ( not the ice freezer ) and after more than 45 minutes it was just barely luke warm. My older model was much better. But none of them lasted very long which was a complete waste of money. As far as condensation, it had smoke coming out of it for quite some time before even putting any food in it and also the following day. Maybe it was a faulty model, but after so many of them having issues and not lasting very long I will not be buying this brand again.

if the cup cake pan fits, sure, but cook on a shorter time and check as it is hotter than regular oven.

Absolutely, my regular oven uses 10.9 kw and the toaster oven uses 1.4 kw. So about a tenth.

There is a removable slide out tray at the bottom which I guess u could cover with foil to catch any fat....

Hi Jean88,

Our larger compact ovens do come with an oven tray which can be used with the wire rack to catch oils and drips. The Mini Bake & Grill currently does not come with this style of tray.
