  1. Ever since I threw out my 35-year-old Proctor-Silex 6 years ago (still working but badly rusted), I have not been able to get a brown sear on broiled burgers and steaks. I spent a month choosing an under-$100 replacement. The Waring Pro WTO450 should have done the job. 1500 watts. A wraparound top heating element. A door that stays open 1 inch for continuous broiling temp. Huge choice of rack positions. It toasts and bakes perfectly. But broil? It simply does not get hot enough. Why did the old 1000-1500 watt toaster ovens broil so well? Have you personally been able to get a brown sear on any unit? Do I have to spend a fortune to broil? There seems to have been a loss of interest in broiling versus grilling. Few reviews mention it except to note the presence of a broil function. Why the change?

    1. After reading through a zillion customer reviews, the most common essay-type responses I read were from customers complaining about the declining quality in newer toaster ovens. It’s a shame and it is unfortunately happening to some degree in just about every industry out there. I wish I had a better explanation for you, but it seems like all companies keep finding new ways of getting cheaper materials (profit driven instead of quality driven). So while your Waring Pro may be running at a higher wattage, the heating elements may not be as effective at transmitting that energy into heat. Just a wild guess. I did notice that the Black+Decker TO3250XSB received a lot of positive feedback about the broil option. It will run you about 70 bucks but is a pretty big oven (8 slices) and was my favorite (alongside the Mueller model) outlined in the review. Otherwise, yes, unfortunately you may have to invest a little (kind of a lot) more money on a toaster oven that works more as a secondary oven (like a Breville or a Wolf). The COSORI CO130-AO is also an awesome oven with a ton of great broiler feedback, but it will cost you around $200. I did just create a pretty extensive review on the Wolf elite. It’s a lot of money, but I haven’t been able to find any legitimate complaints from people. (only complaints reflecting people’s poor researching abilities). I really hope this helps. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you

      Cheers!
