You have to hit the "run" button multiple times before it will start. So far that's only an annoyance but I'm wondering how long it will last.

But the last time I had a toaster oven, I noticed too much heat leaked out through the glass door. I did an experiment and even though the big oven took more time and power to heat the food, the toaster oven heated the kitchen three degrees more.
I want a toaster oven that heats the inside of the oven a lot, and the outside of the oven not-so-much. I'm also on a budget.
