We all could use some help in the kitchen to make things easier and less of a hassle. A toaster oven can really help you cut down your workload and make things more efficient. Using less energy than a conventional sized oven, countertop ovens are really starting to pick up in popularity and for good reason. There are so many uses for a toaster oven that can be beneficial to your cooking experience. If you love to cook like we do, then getting one of these for your family is really going to pay off in the long run.
We have searched long and hard to find the top convection toaster ovens and have narrowed it down to the top 3 ovens that will allow you to best take advantage of what convection cooking has to offer. Below are toaster ovens that should help you transform your kitchen into a more efficient area of your home and allow to you enjoy your food without having to work so hard to prepare it.
Cuisinart TOB-260N Chef’s Convection Oven
This is a relatively new entry into the toaster oven arena but it is already getting some very high reviews from owners. Cuisinart is one of the premier small kitchen appliance makers and they do a really good job making some outstanding countertop ovens. The TOB-260N has 1875 watts of power, which is the most in its class. It features two separate convection settings, one for baking, and speed convection feature that allows you to skip the preheating process.
All Cuisinart ovens feature their “Exact Heat” technology that helps produce even results. It is a very big countertop oven so you will want to make sure that you have the space for it. It has digital control display that looks to rival Breville ovens. Overall this is a very robust convection oven that takes our top spot.
Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven
In a very close second place comes this very highly owner rated oven from Breville. We love their appliances because of their design quality and their advanced features. The BOV800XL is a great example of their eye for detail when it comes to user convenience. This model comes with 9 preset cooking functions including a convection setting. The fan in this oven blows at an even an quiet pace and works as advertised. With enough room for 6 slices of toast, this oven has the capability of cooking rather large meals and can replace a lot of what you may use your full sized oven for.
It also has a modern look and an easy on the eyes LCD display that we like. The only knock on this model is that it does not have an interior light which we think is a major oversight. It is, however, a very capable toaster oven despite some of its minor quarks. It is also the most expensive oven in our top 3 and will cost you around $250.
KitchenAid KCO273 Series
KitchenAid stepped up their game to create an equally modern convection oven that has gotten some rave reviews from owners. The KCO273SS is similar to the other ovens on our list in but functionality and styling. It is a little less than the Breville BOV800XL and can be purchased somewhere around $200, which for its features and performance is a really good price.
If you are always looking for something new and improved for your kitchen or you are just looking for a way to reduce some of your workload while saving a little money along the way, getting a convection oven for your countertop is a smart option. Not only will you save time while preparing your favorite recipes for your family, you will end up spending less time and energy while doing it.
These are just a few of the top of the line models that we recommend. Of course, these won’t fit into everyone’s budget. Luckily there are quite a few high quality options out there that won’t break the bank. If you can afford to splurge a little then the ovens above are well worth their price.
