Toaster Ovens: Hot, Fast, and Good
Sure, you can use a toaster oven to heat up multiple slices of toast, but toaster ovens are capable of so much more. The possibilities are limited only by your culinary imagination: you can bake pizzas, pastries, French fries, veggies, poultry, beef, fish, bagels – you might be surprised at how many different foods you can prepare. Since a toaster oven heats up faster than a regular oven you’ll tend to use it more often than its larger cousin, and with a relatively small footprint they can fit almost anywhere in your kitchen. Choose from brands like KitchenAid, Hamilton Beach, Cuisinart, Breville, and Black & Decker.
Convection Toaster Ovens
Standard toaster ovens use radiant heating to cook food, employing a few heating elements to radiate heat directly onto the dish. Convection heating, on the other hand, uses radiant heating and also heats the air inside the oven and blows it across the food, bathing your meal in super-hot air and cooking it evenly on all sides. As a result convection toaster ovens tend to cook faster, more evenly, and can operate at lower temperatures.
