One thing I’ve learned in my extensive personal research into toaster ovens is that, with very few exceptions, you need to spend about $200 to get a good one. Sure, there are hundreds of cheap metal boxes with three knobs that will (inconsistently) brown your bread or heat up a slice of pizza, but when it comes to features, speed, and above all, consistency, you really do get what you pay for.
That logic certainly applies to the Cuisinart Chef’s Toaster Convection Oven, which is marked down to $220 today on Amazon. Instead of fiddly knobs, you get a digital screen with precise information. Rather than two small heating elements, you get five, plus convection fans to distribute that heat evenly. And while cheap toasters might hold two or four pieces of bread, this can easily accommodate up to six standard slices (or nine if they’re small), and customize the toast time to achieve your preferred level of doneness. Yes, it’s an investment, but as I said before, you get what you pay for. [Cuisinart Chef’s Toaster Convection Oven, $220]
