5 Best Toaster Ovens 2020

A toaster oven can be imagined as a downscaled version of a regular oven. It is usually used for baking toast, hence its name. Also many models are exactly the same size as a toaster.

These ovens are a very useful investment, and higher-class models can replace an entire kitchen with their functionality. This is especially true for loners or people who don’t cook much – in their case the small oven can do everything they need.

There are pretty many of these devices on the market, and they range wildly by price, volume and functionality. To pick the right model you will have to make up your mind with size and abilities, and then price. However, to make this choice easier for you, we have put together a list of five best models.

This model boasts an IQ-Element, which controls 4 heating surfaces of quartz and makes the heat spread evenly and in the correct amounts. The overall power of the heating elements is 1800 watts, which is plenty enough for any dish to be heated or cooked quickly.

The cooker has 8 distinct functions for different breads and cookies, and it can also heat up cold food.

Even though the name implies it is a miniature device, it fits 4 large toasts or 4 pizzas, 11 inch diameter.

The LCD screen is backlit, so it is very easy to read anytime. While the toaster is cooking something, the screen glows orange, but once it is finished, it turns blue.

The insides of the device are painted with a non-sticking surfacing, which makes it easy to clean.

The manufacturer provides a year-long warranty.

Pros:

  • Very convenient, easy to use controls, combined with a lighted screen
  • Compact size, will fit in a small kitchen
  • Proven to have very even heating

Cons:

  • The only real con is the loud clicking noise it makes, but that is an essential part of its work

The digital controls can be seen on a bright display with blue lighting, and all the buttons are highlighted with LEDs as well.

You can open either of the two doors at will and place up to six slices of bread or pizzas inside. The fact there are 4 positions for the rack makes for cooking many dishes at once – there are two wire grates included, and you can place them anywhere in the stove.

There is an air circulator inside it, which allows the food to be cooked faster. The circulation lets you receive full-flavoured meats in shorter time. The spit rotator lets you cook grilled chicken.

The top and bottom heating elements are separate, and the device controls them independently, maintaining an even amount of heat inside the oven. If the oven is not used in 60 minutes, it turns off for safety reasons. The Maximum temperature is 450 fahrenheit.

All the exterior decorative elements and also the door frame, are made of stainless steel. This material is very easy to wipe off and keep clean.

The crumb tray slides out and makes the cleaning job very easy.

Pros:

  • Makes excellent rotisseries, especially chicken
  • Very easy to clean – all surfaces wipe easily
  • Overall very sturdy build

Cons:

  • As the exterior gets very hot when cooking, take care not to touch it, and not to put it near something burnable.
