I have written on my love for toaster ovens on numerous occasions: even though some see them as outdated and inefficient, I am very much in favor of them. They have made my life so much easier that between my Breville and my microwave I don’t ever use the wall oven.
If you’re a busy mom, a student in a dorm, a white collar worker who’d rather spend their time not cooking, please try a toaster oven. I assure you you will never go back.
Today, I’ve decided to conclude my series on toaster ovens with a hall of fame-type post. I am listing the best toaster ovens out there on the market so that you don’t need to do any research. Here goes:
Best for a Family of One or Two: Panasonic FlashXPress NB-G110P
Here is my review of the Panasonic FlashXPress Compact.
|✅||No preheating, faster heating, even cooking|
|❎||Not powerful enough for baking or broiling|
Best Bang for Buck: Oster Digital 6 Slice
Here is my review of the Oster Digital Toaster Oven.
|✅||Ease of use|
|✅||Great interior light|
|✅||Two devices in one|
|❎||Toasting is surprisingly bad|
|❎||No light-up controls|
Best Budget Pick: Black&Decker 4 Slice (TO1760SS)
|✅||Gets the basic jobs done|
|✅||Easy to clean|
|❎||Indicators on the knobs are hard to read|
|❎||Gets very hot|
Here are a couple of links to other toaster ovens that I have reviewed:
- Hamilton Beach Easy Reach – this one is probably the prettiest I have owned. 8/10.
- Proctor Silex – very peculiar. Something that my parents love because it’s mechanic and retro-styled. 7/10. (Read that one to see my worst photos of a product to date!)
- Rosewill RHTO 13001 – avoid at all costs. Chinese pseudo-brand with shattering glass and toxic fumes. 1/10.
Wonder why I have so much experience with so many different toaster ovens? One reason: I have a massive shiny object syndrome. I buy something, try it out, and even if I like it for most part, whenever I see an ad for another new super duper thing™, I buy it and flip the old one on eBay. And yet whenever I buy something, I think this time it’s the one… Every. Time. Sigh.
Anyway, I hope you will benefit from my experience with these toaster ovens! Reach out to me to let me know what you think.
Love and peace,
