I recently had to replace my ancient Black and Decker toaster oven, I bought the Black and Decker Toaster/Convection oven. It was the sturdiest of those that I looked at in the store, the rest (smaller) seemed to be just too flimsy.
The one downside is that it is noisy, the convection ovens do make more noise due to the fan that the smaller toaster ovens.
It does cook well, and is bigger than the standard toaster oven, so you can fit larger food in it.

I have the KitchenAid counter oven from Target, and it has taken over for my propane oven for the most part. I've only had it since December, so have no idea how long it will last. Its Euro Pro predecessor only lasted three years. The Black and Decker before that lasted for more than fifteen; and the Norelco before that lasted about seven.
You should do an internet search for reviews and evaluations. I have some friends who have a very odd toaster oven with a bread warmer on top. They love it, and they only bought it after extensive research. I probably wouldn't have bought the KitchenAid if I'd done the same, but I've had KitchenAid appliances from years past that have been well made. Of course they were/are all from before everything was out-sourced to offshore.
