What would you consider a good way to wake up? Rising with the sunlight? Getting a cup of coffee in nice and early, or even having a couple of slices of toast to get your engine running for the day? Well, if your answer was the latter of the aforementioned trio then you could be in luck as this review will be looking at the Panasonic NB-G110P toaster oven and seeing if it can help with your breakfast needs.
This toaster oven is exactly what you need when you wake up hungry in the morning. It is fast. Panasonic’s “FlashXPress” double Infrared light cooks up to 40x quicker than conventional toaster ovens according to the manufacturers, so if you are in a rush this could be the oven for you. There is an easy to use panel on the front which houses the 6 illustrated controls for everything from toasting bread through to cooking frozen foods. The Panasonic has a removable front tray and nonstick interior which both add up to make sure it is an easy clean after it has been used.
The easiest way to describe the design of this toaster oven would be to compare it to a very early computer. The design aesthetics evidently came second to the cooking features when the oven was being created. That being said, the machine is compact and only has a small footprint on the countertop, so cleaning will not pose much of a problem. With dimensions of 13.5 x 13.5 x 14.5 inches the oven can easily be stored away when needed too.
The small size of the machine means that it have no problems fitting in kitchens or utility rooms. The biggest pro with the Panasonic is however the speed at which is can cook bread. It is clever enough to automatically calculate the required cooking time for various foods including bread, bagels and frozen foods, so this is one less worry for you. It’s easy to clean, has a removable crumb tray and even lets you know when your food is ready, so all in all they have managed to fir a lot in a small machine.
Complaints are at a minimum for this oven, but the few there are are in reference to it occasionally breaking and with Panasonic’s apparently poor customer service when customers have tried to rectify this issue. The outward aesthetics may also put some potential buyers off, as it is not even close to being the most attractive oven on the shelves today.
If you are looking for a small machine that will make getting out of bed in the morning and making breakfast that bit easier then this could be the toaster oven for you. It is compact and yet has a large number of features, including the one that sets it apart from its competition, the “FlashXPress” double Infrared light which, if the claims are correct, can cook items of food up to 40x quicker than more conventional methods. The machine may not be much of a looker, but it should suit all of your toasting needs so it is well worth a look!
