A toaster oven can be a very convenient appliance if you live in a small space. Not only will it toast your bread, but it will also bake your most favorite pie or heat up last night’s pizza.
I am a 26 year old individual and I live in a one- bedroom apartment that I had to furnish myself. The kitchen is very small and there is little space for me to buy all the kitchen products out there. I have a full schedule and no spare time to cook during the day (except for the weekends). So all I need is the essential appliances that can heat my food or cook occasional meals.
I decided to buy the Breville Smart Oven. The salesman advised that it was the best toaster oven out there so far. It uses little electricity and performs adequately. Indeed, he was right. I use it to toast my bread in the morning for breakfast. It takes about 3 minutes for my bread to reach the golden color and crunchy texture. Other functions include reheating your food, roasting, baking etc. This toaster oven does the deed. It costs around $250. Not that bad for a multi-usage product. (Check out here)
However, if you are opting for a smaller and much cheaper toaster oven, then the Waring Pro Digital Convection Oven might be the right option for you.It costs just under $100. It might be a better option if you are on a budget. This toaster oven has less options than the Breville one. It probably won’t bake your standard pie, but it will toast your bread and heat your pizza. My friend bought this toaster oven and is very happy with it. Personally, I need something much bigger and more performing because I cook more than she does.
So there you have it- two toaster ovens -choose your pick and you will not be disappointed.
