You know the toaster oven: it gives forth deliciousness every day. The familiarity afforded by the device invites versatility; as food cooks inside, a glance or two may lead to inspiration. The blank canvas that is a slice of toast or a bagel practically begs for additional ingredients to be piled on. Sooner or later, it's going to happen; all that is needed is to get to the food.

The Hamilton Beach 31334 Easy-Reach 4-Slice Toaster Oven ($49.99) makes it easy to access whatever happens to be on the menu. With bake, broil, and toast settings, the countertop appliance serves up a trio of features that allow for infinite possibilities. Complete with a bake pan and a broil rack that is adjustable to two settings, the toaster oven supplies the versatility to get the job done. But it's the roll-top door that opens up the possibilities here.

Featuring a distinctive mechanism that provides easy access to the food inside, the toaster oven is made for those who like to play with their food. For those who prefer a less interactive experience, an integrated 30-minute timer offers an easy way to passively keep track of the cooking. And don't worry: even though the appliance can bake and broil so many different combinations, it's still OK to just make toast.
