According to CNet, some of the best-reviewed countertop convection ovens, as of 2015, are the Breville Smart Oven, Cuisinart CSO-300 Combo Steam and Convection Oven and the Panasonic FlashXpress. The Breville Smart Oven has also received winning reviews on The Sweet Home site. Some of the qualities that make this countertop convection oven a fan-favorite is its five quartz heating elements, its roominess?able to fit a cake pan, pizza or a whole chicken?and its even cooking. The smart aspect of the oven is the heating Element IQ feature that changes how and what heating elements are being used depending on whether it's roasting, toasting or baking.
The Cuisinart CSO-300 Combo Steam and Convection Oven also makes the list for its steaming capabilities and built-in water reservoir. It also reheats leftovers well. However, as one of the higher priced ovens, it can't always outcook less expensive ovens to make the price difference worth it. The Panasonic FlashXpress is a fairly inexpensive convection oven that has quick cooking times and performed well in cooking tests. The only downside is its relatively small size.
