      David,

      I've seen many people ask about their hub recently, and they all have some things in common.

      1. It's a sales hub.  There are several things that are featured that are in a particular category. The descriptions all seem to come from Amazon or the manufacturer.

      2.  The Hubber does not recommend a particular product, or tell you the pros or cons or provide any other information that can't be found on Amazon.

      3.. The Hubber does not actually seem to have owned any of the products, or at least doesn't mention any personal experience with any of these products.

      4.  There is a bunch of links to other hubs that have nothing to do with the hub.

      On your hub, there are some grammar mistakes.  Your second paragraph ends with a semicolon and your third paragraph ends without any punctuation.

      While it is possible to write sales hubs here, I hope you will consider writing other types of hubs.
      To fix this one, remove the links at the bottom of the hub to your other hubs.  Add personal experience to help figure out what features are important and what the difference is between the different  brand names. What kinds of things do YOU make with YOUR toaster oven?

      You're not allowed to post links to Hubs in the forums, except in the "Improving Your Hub" section which is the right place to ask this question - but don't worry, I'm guessing a moderator will move this thread for you at some point. 

      My feedback:

      All you do in this Hub is explain the main features of each product without doing anything to help the reader decide which to choose.  Your descriptions read like you've just lifted them from a brochure about the product.    I'd be rewriting them to highlight the important features rather than the specs, e.g. each product could have a section "Choose this toaster oven if...." listing, in bullet points, the kind of users or situations that oven is best for.  Alternatively, your last paragraph could have a table listing the pros and cons of each model - for which you also need to read reviews on Amazon and other review sites to discover what they are!!

    I don't use toaster ovens.  I remember the old ones that you really didn't do much with, and they were energy zappers, meaning they ran up the electric bill something terrible.  You could have chosen one, maybe one that you, a friend, family member has and do a review on that one.  Convection ovens are popular.  There are convection toaster ovens as well.  You could do a comparison between a toaster oven and a convection toaster oven including price comparison, etc.   My choice is a microwave.  Which is better and why?

    Hit the internet for customer reviews, Consumer reports, Good Housekeeping, Consumer product safety.  Take notes then put your notes into your own words.

    I read Amazon customer revews and add things like: Customer reviews:
    Out of x number of customers, this product had x number of reviews.  Most liked. Those who gave a 3 star rating or lower liked the product for the same reasons as most users did, but this was what they did not like.  You will be surprised at some of the reasons that people will give a product a 3 star or below rating.  Color not same as photo.  Instructions difficult to understand. They thought item was bigger than it actually is, etc.

    Some excellent advice here.  Well done. 

    I do use a toaster oven, it is one of the one zillion things in the kitchen.  Well, my wife uses it.  The main thing she uses it for these days is for hot rolls and hot bread, such as garlic breads.

      I use a toaster oven every morning. It takes up valuable counter space, but we think it is worth it.
