Toaster Ovens Buying Guide

Refine By

Toaster ovens do so much more than toast bread. They perform a variety of functions, including baking, roasting, reheating, even broiling. And because some include a temperature control that will heat up to 450°F, they offer fantastic versatility.

Types of Toaster Ovens

Types of Toaster Ovens

Whether you’re baking pizza, heating leftovers, roasting meat, defrosting frozen vegetables, or, of course, making toast, a toaster oven can meet your needs. Since a toaster oven uses less energy, it can be a good, economical substitute for a full oven, especially when cooking for just one or two people. A glass door makes it easy to watch the browning progress of foods. Digital displays and touchpad controls are up-to-date features that beat knobs and analog controls. If you like to bake, a toaster/convection oven combination is an option worth considering.

Regular

Originally used to toast bread, these small units are now used for so much more -- reheating, baking, roasting, broiling, and so on. From simple units to those with multiple functions, these units can serve as a substitute for a full-size oven if cooking for one, two, or a few.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

When buying a toaster oven, recognize all its uses so you get the most for your money. Beyond just toasting, some of these small units have the capability to reheat, bake, roast and more. Perfect for small families, this appliance heats quickly and can stand in for small tasks. Factor in the other small appliances you own or plan to acquire to decide whether a toaster oven is a necessity or just a nice-to-have extra, especially if you’re short on counter space in your kitchen.

Size

Most toaster ovens are small and compact, but think about the amount of countertop space you have. Check out the venting system to make sure you have room to pull it away from the wall if needed.

Functions

More than just toasting, these compact oven are now designed to reheat, bake, roast, and broil. Simply choose a function, and the oven adjusts temperatures and times as needed.

Timer/indicator

Many models have an audible indicator that sounds when heating is complete. This is handy, as food doneness should be monitored and cooking time adjusted as needed.

Defrost

Some models offer a defrost cycle and have the capacity to calculate the additional time it will take when cooking food from frozen.

Preprogramming

Although some models have temperatures and times programmed for particular types of cooking, it is essential that you can adjust the heat as well as the cooking time.

Auto shut-off

When a programmed cooking cycle is complete or when the time runs out, some models automatically shut off. This keeps food from burning if you are not available to remove it promptly.

Keep warm

In case you are not able to get to the food as soon as it is done heating, a “keep-warm” option is nice to have.

Racks

Most toaster ovens have two rack slots, and some slots are labeled for proper placement for a set function.

Crumb tray

A removable crumb tray is a must with toaster ovens to corral the inevitable crumbs that fall from breads, sandwiches, etc. For thorough cleaning, make sure the crumb tray actually comes all the way out of the oven.

Baking trays

Baking trays that are included with some toaster oven models are a nice bonus.
