The top 10 toaster ovens of 2015 include Black & Decker?s Toast-R-Oven, Breville?s Smart Oven, Cuisinart?s TOB-40, DeLonghi?s DO 1289, Frigidaire?s Professional, Hamilton Beach?s Set & Forget, Kenmore?s Elite, KitchenAid?s 12-inch Convection Countertop, Oster?s Large Digital and Panasonic?s FlashXpress, according to Top Ten Reviews. All 10 models receive strong ratings.
Black & Decker?s Toast-R-Oven is one of the largest on the market, capable of heating up a casserole dish or a 12-inch pizza. The oven offers a range of cooking features, including broiling, reheating and convection cooking, which circulates heat for more even results. Especially of note is the oven?s rotisserie feature, which heats food from the side while continuously rotating it.
Breville?s Smart Oven is another large toaster that also packs a variety of features. The unit?s spacious interior features three rack levels, allowing users to adjust the level based on the dish that?s being cooked. The oven also offers nine presets for cooking common foods such as toast, bagels, pizza and cookies. Users praise the oven's intuitive interface and powerful cooking ability, while noting that its price is steep compared to many other models.
Cuisinart?s TOB-40 wins praise as a value-priced model that cuts down on some features but not on performance. The unit is reliable for toasting and reheating, but its lack of convection cooking makes it less useful for other types of food. For the price, however, the Cuisinart is a practical choice.
