Perfectly toasted toast is a necessity. Badly toasted toast — either too light or dark — is a surefire way to start your day on a much sadder note than necessary. And for great toast you’re going to need a great toaster or toaster oven. This bestselling toaster oven on Amazon more than fits the bill — and it’s only $36.

It has almost 8,500 customer reviews (more than 5,500 of which are five stars). It’s available in 4- or 6-slice sizes and comes in silver, black, and white finishes. It’s pretty straightforward, as far as toaster ovens go, with no special features like “dehydrate” or “air fry,” but it toasts, bakes, and broils. Which is, most of the time, all you need.

What else is there to know? Amazon shoppers love this thing. Let’s look at some five-star reviews to find out why.

“My wife and I were using a competitor and the toaster oven shorted out. It was time for a new one. After reading the reviews about this product I was a little apprehensive at first due to the supposed [small] size and thus capacity. Some of the reviewers stated that the interior was smaller than advertised. As far as we found the toaster to be, it’s just as large as our old one, yet the exterior utilizes much less space. This was a Godsend as we have a limited amount of room in our kitchen. Add the fact that my wife was summarily shocked at how well it heated and the control knobs easy to read, this toaster oven performs excellently. I would not hesitate in referring friends, and family to purchase one.”

“This is such a nice little oven. It is easy to clean, simple to use, and heats up quickly without making the room its in super hot. This is perfect for someone with a small apartment as it takes up very little space and allows you to cook basically anything. Money well spent on this.”

“We redecorated our kitchen with new tile backsplash, and this toaster matched it perfectly, works exactly as advertised, and is quick to warm up! We’ve toasted and baked a number of things in it, all have been good. We line the tray with foil each time to keep it clean and saves us from having to clean it. Baked cinnamon rolls last weekend in it! Very happy with it!”
