Hello
Im looking for a new toaster oven. Ive contacted Hamilton Beach ( several times lol to make sure) and was curious if anyone is currently using one. Below are the emails I received back and although they continually say there are NO coatings, you never know if the person actually checked and I cant take a risk. So I thought if anyone uses one or has one they know for sure is safe let me know.

1st email
"

I have a Hamilton Beach toaster oven as well, and a different rep also told me it was free of (insert many things here, because I asked about as many of them as I could think of, by chemical name!)

I can find the thread where I posted their emails:

The first post is the text of the email I sent them (so you can see which compounds I asked about) and the next is the email replies I got!

Is that the air fryer ? Does that work well?
Never used it for air frying but yeah, I guess it is! Works fine. My mom put a bagel with butter on it in it this weekend though and didn’t put it on the included tray and the butter dripped on the heating element and took a couple days to burn off, which was miserable!

Note; my parrots are not on the same floor of my house as the kitchen, so even if it were somehow hazardous I’ll never know. However, I feel pretty good about the assurances I was given and think it’s safe. I didn’t know before looking into it, for example, that toasters had nonstick parts, so I actually probably had a really UNSAFE toaster before I realized and replaced it with this new one!
