When I immigrated to the USA in 1974 a toaster oven was a small kitchen appliance that was new to me. Today the toaster oven is still selling like hotcakes, although it still can not make them. Yet.
The phrase “buy me once” is an ever increasing trend in today’s eco-friendly customer’s minds. For me, the best toaster oven is also the best toaster oven for toast! Toast for me and many others is the primary reason for purchasing this small, versatile, kitchen appliance.

Toaster ovens with convection heat
Convection heat inside a oven is a fancy name for a fan that circulates heat inside the toaster oven. Convected heat is the same as circulated heat. A small fan inside the toaster oven accomplishes the task of convection heat. A convection oven often results in a more even and faster cooking process.
