New toaster oven

i too am looking to replace my old, but reliable black and decker toaster oven. the more i read, the more confused i get. explosions, burned toast, shattering glass doors, non-user friendly, noisy, and breaking after 6 months are just some of the complaints. then i started reading about the health issues attached to the easy-clean interior coatings! it is almost enough to make me give up on a toasted bagel! the breville sounds good, but i would really prefer a smaller sized model. any thoughts or sugggestions??

toaster oven recommendation

thanks for your recommendation. i did some research and noticed that more than a few people noted that although they LOVED their smart oven initially, one of the heating elements stopped working about 1 1/2 - 2 years in. i guess you did not experience this?

toaster oven recommendation

after many years of service, my toaster oven needs to be replaced. any suggestions? i don't need to be able to cook a 12 inch pizza; 4 slices of bread at a time is fine. i'm looking for a smaller size one rather than a mini-oven!
what ever happened to the good old days when you just bought an inexpensive black and decker and it lasted forever?

Doris & Ed's Closed

I saw a full page ad in a local paper( can't recall the name, but i pick it up free all over Red Bank) from Doris and Ed's. It stated that they were rebuilding and would re-open, but didn't say when.

la cashina- matawan?

i ate there about 10 years ago, but have not been back. the fact that it can remain open there makes me wonder if the food is better than okay. i was hoping someone had some more current information.

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION-Monmouth county

looking for a great place for a birthday dinner, with about 10 adults (including one vegetarian) and possibly a toddler who is good in restaurants, but is still, after all, less than 2 years old. BYOB would be nice, great food, "some privacy" so that we don't have to sit right on top of another party, some ambiance???--- too much to ask?-- any suggestions?

tender greens clone

While in San Diego, i ate at a restaurant called Tender Greens. it had interesting salads and sandwiches, delicious soups, and simple entrees. The food was fresh, tasty, well- prepared, and reasonable, and pleased both vegetarians and meat-eaters. Does anyone know of any restaurants like this in the monmouth county area?

bella sera, matawan

has anyone ever eaten at bella sera? it is located in a strip mall on rt. 34 in aberdeen, between a liquor store and a walk-in doctor's office-- not very promising, but i saw several people walking in with bottles of wine the other day.

any other suggestions for BYOB in the area?
