Viewpoints recommends three toaster ovens as top choices:
Best Overall: Toaster Ovens – Basic
Breville The Compact Smart Oven BOV650XL ($180)
Rated 97 | 18+ reviews
Several reviewers got this as a gift and didn’t know what to expect. The verdict, though, is nearly unanimous. The Breville compact toaster oven (smaller sibling to Breville’s convection BOV800XL) is “absolutely reliable.”
“… with the high price does come very good quality. We hesitate to even call this a toaster oven … It is so much more. We didn’t have a working kitchen through a long period of renovation and this Breville could not have been more of a savior to us.” —WC3, Glendale, CA, Reviewer since 2011
Best Overall: Toaster Ovens – Convection
Breville The Smart Oven Convection BOV800XL ($250)
Rated 98 | 30+ reviews
A bit larger than most toaster ovens, The Smart Oven by Breville bakes with convection heat and is in a class by itself. Is it possible to be in love with a toaster oven? Reviewers use words like “awesome” and “amazing” to describe its “top-of-the-line” features. A worthy splurge.
“I actually use it much more often than my regular oven … I cannot think of anything bad to say about the Breville Smart oven. It is probably the best kitchen purchase I have ever made!” —fitzie2, Perrysburg, OH, Reviewer since 2009
Best Value: Toaster Ovens – Convection
Black & Decker Convection Toast-R-Oven with Rotisserie CTO7100B ($100)
Rated 88 | 66+ reviews
Recommended as best for pizza, broiling or baking, the Black & Decker Convection Toast-R-Oven with Rotisserie packs much functionality for the price. This mighty toaster oven makes “the perfect housewarming or wedding gift.”
“Not your standard toaster oven! It is lightweight and attractive. It cooks food evenly. It doesn’t take up much counter space and is very easy to clean.”–christmassnow09, Lancaster, NY, Reviewer since 2010
