The Best All Around Toaster Oven

The uses for a toaster oven go way beyond making toast. A good toaster oven functions as a small second oven, and can even take the place of your big oven—it can handle a 4-pound chicken or bake potatoes or a batch of cookies, and it preheats faster, uses less energy, and is easy to clean. Toaster ovens make quick work of toasting nuts or bread crumbs, and are ideal for roasting a vegetable side dish, baking an 8-inch square cake, or broiling a few fillets of fish. They’re even handy for holidays or parties when you need more cooking space, and they won’t heat up your kitchen as your full-size oven would on hot days. We baked 10 batches of cookies, broiled 100 asparagus spears, roasted 10 chickens, and toasted a whopping 860 slices of bread to find the very best toaster oven.

Breville Smart Oven

WINNER - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Testers loved this machine, which had a slimmer, more compact footprint and shorter stature than other models and therefore took up less room on our counters. Its cooking basket was roomy enough for 1 pound of food and had a completely nonstick coating. We also liked that the bottom of the basket could be removed for even deeper cleaning, if needed. Its digital controls and dial-operated menu made setting the time and temperature easy and intuitive. It stopped cooking as soon as the set time was up, and its drawer-like design allowed us to remove food without exposing our hands to the heating element.

How We Tested Toaster Ovens

We selected 10 toaster ovens, priced from about $40 to about $270, based on information about availability and popularity provided by major manufacturers. All but one of the toaster ovens had convection capability. We made toast and prepared Best Baked Potatoes, Simple Broiled Asparagus, Weeknight Roast Chicken, slice-and-bake sugar cookies, tuna melts, and frozen pepperoni pizza in each model. We used thermocouples to track the accuracy of each oven when set to 350 degrees over 2 hours, and tested how well various baking pans and sheets fit in each oven. Finally, we evaluated the user-friendliness of each oven, noting how intuitive the ovens were to operate and how easy they were to clean. We also made 365 slices of toast in our winning oven to evaluate its durability over a year of simulated use.
