    This particular product has nine programmable settings but the nifty
    part is that you have the ability to tailor those settings for your cooking needs.

    Bacon, sour cream, onion, garlic and Cheddar cheese come together with the corn in a very mouth-watering
    way. It also means the handle will always stay cool
    to the touch, good news for anyone who has ever been burned by a cheap toaster oven.
