Pros Great at heating food, great at Hot Pockets,Easy to use, solid valueRunner-up at the best frozen burritoSpeedy, decent at frozen burritosEasy to use
Cons Expensive, poor frozen burrito performanceNot the fastest, doesn’t heat extremely evenlyUneven heating of leftovers, overall unremarkable performanceExpensive, difficult to useMediocre performance, expensive
Bottom Line Expensive, but delivers a great performance overallWhile it couldn’t claim the top spot, the Toshiba is a good value choice that did decently well in most of our testsSecond-rate microwave for the priceQuick to heat, but had to wave at the competition as it got passed by trying to figure itself outEasy to use pricey microwave, but got zapped down by the competition
