Positives

The Kenmore 4 slice Digital Toaster Oven can toast up to four slices of bread or a pizza up to nine inches. Clean up is easy and efficient to do due to its easily reachable spaces and small size. When cooking pizza the 4 slice does a great job with being even and well cooked. The digital settings are basic and easy to work with. No confusion using them at all.

Negative

Unfortunately the Kenmore 4 slice Digital Toaster Oven has far too many negatives to count. The biggest problem is that it cooks food unevenly with some parts of the food being cooked and another part still frozen. A big design flaw is that every time after using the 4 slice for ether cooking/broiling and toasting, you are instructed to unplug the unit in order to clear the display so you can use the oven again. This shouldn’t be an issue but for some reason Kenmore decided to design the 4 slice like this. If you hold the button as instructed to, it doesn’t clear to zero. It will clear the current time back to the default time, which is 30 min for cooking.

Summary

The Kenmore 4 slice Digital Toaster Oven is a great toaster in theory with its ability to use Quartz heating technology and convection giving it the capabilities of a real oven. It can cook a pizza well and settings are easy enough to work with. However none of these are enough to save the 4 slice. It suffers from bad design such as unplugging it to clear the settings and the worst being uneven cooking with anything other then pizza. The 4 slice isn’t the worst toaster out there but there are better ones to buy. This is one is worth skipping.
