What buyers say about Hamilton Beach 31436 Sure-Crisp Air Fryer Countertop Toaster Oven
The Hamilton Beach Toaster Oven has a 30 minute timer, knobs are easy to turn, and a roll top lid that keeps the door out of the oven.
I made cookies on both the regular bake method and the convection method, and both turned out well, though as with most other small ovens, it does bake faster than the recipes suggest, so watch you food carefully and check it first a minute or so before the shortest suggested time.
The door that opens up allows for the best access to any toaster oven, it is big enough to cook a 12" pizza, temperature control is excellent, the air fry setting is excellent for browning foods at the end of a cooking cycle, and it hold bigger pans than any toaster oven I have
After he almost set the food on fire in the microwave, I decided to get this because I already microwaved the chicken tenders for a couple minutes to get the inside cooked.
The old one had the door open out and it took up too much counter space, so I used a larger plate or hot pad instead.
Is the element under the cook rack? I have had cheese burn on it in the oven and it is not desirable.
The two uncovered elements are under the cook rack, but I wrap the included baking sheet in foil and place it on a separate rack just beneath the wire rack, which catches all drips, and still allowing my toast to get crispy.
How much clearance is needed for the handle when in open position?
The handle misses it because the front edge of the cabinet is 14-1/16" from the counter. But the bottom of the actual cabinet is recessed 1-7/8" and so there is plenty of room for the handle.
What is the option to stay on setting?
It is very easy to turn off the timer just past the "off" setting, and you can notice it is done in 15 minutes if you timed a cook for 20 minutes.
What are the dimensions?
External dimensions for the appliance are: W: 18.50" - D: 15.0" - H: 9.50".
What is the height with the door open for the 31123D model?
It's from the countertop to the top of the handle when open.
