Hamilton Beach Easy Reach Oven Review

toaster oven

The reason that I wanted to check out this toaster oven is because of my propensity for receiving burn marks on my knuckles from reaching into toaster ovens to re-adjust the items that always seem to burn in the back while the items in the front get under cooked. I know better, but always seem to think I can get away with reaching in and then… singe… that top heating element gets me almost every time! We tend to use a toaster oven a lot, especially in warmer weather, since it’s convenient and pre-heats faster than a big oven. But, the “chicks dig scars” isn’t so true when they’re on your own hands and look more like age spots. So, when I saw this rolling top toaster oven, I was more than intrigued.

Hamilton Beach Easy Reach Oven Review

Here’s a few things we found out about this oven.

  • The lid worked really smooth, super easy to open & close. Actually, too easy for the men over here who showed me how it banged at each end of opening.


  • The oven would be great if you are tight on counter space since it only measures approximately 16″x11″x9″ and no extra room is needed when you open the lid.


  • It holds an 8″x8″ pan, a 9″ pizza or 4 slices of toast. For us, that’s small since we are used to a 6 slice toaster oven.


  • The roll top cover (#easyreach) allows for you to carefully add toppings to your dish. But, in reality, you are only given a few extra inches of reach than with a conventional pull open door.

  • The roll top, a crumb tray and wire rack are all removable for easy cleaning. Being able to soak the glass cover could be a plus for messy cooks like me.

  • Good heat retention and even browning properties were both realized while making these Nutella brownies. I didn’t even need to rotate the pan while cooking.
