Choosing the best 3-in-1 toaster oven sounds like a straightforward task, but there are hundreds of factors that one needs to take into account before making the final decision to get rid of their hard-earned cash. For instance, the best 3-in-1 toaster oven should be fast, it should brown your meals evenly (on all sides), it should be powerful, and spacious enough to accommodate any family’s needs. On top of this, the appliance’s exterior surface should stay cool to the touch during operations and be easy to clean. To confirm the latter, the surface should not show fingerprints after use.
That said, as expected, all these features are hard to test unless you have physical access to the appliance, and that’s why I decided to take it upon myself to test different appliances and create a shortlist of the best 5 that can meet (or even exceed) my needs and expectations.
Without wasting any more of your time, let’s skip to the main section of the post and look at the best 3-in-1 toaster ovens today.

- As the first 3-in-1 toaster oven, this high-end and reliable Nostalgia toaster oven’s performance stood out above the rest. Its stylish design retails in two different colors, pearl white and aqua. This makes it the perfect gift option if you have a loved one’s special occasion (wedding or birthday party) coming up because you can get it in the recipient’s favorite color. Its aesthetic design will also blend in with any home’s interior décor. I recently placed it on my restaurant’s counter, and I can rest assured that 4 out of 5 customers have something to say about its design.
- In the cooking department, NOSTALGIA BSET300WH Toaster Oven doesn’t disappoint either. The appliance retails with a cool to the touch exterior, which has two advantages. First, it means that the appliance has been perfectly insulated so hot air does not reach the surface. This trapped, hot air then helps the appliance deliver perfectly cooked meals in a timely manner. Secondly, a cool to the touch exterior also protects anyone that accidentally comes into contact with the appliance while it’s in operation. This is a must-have feature especially if you have children running around in your household.
- From the product’s image above, you can also see that the appliance retails with a griddle on the top and a coffee maker on the side. The coffee maker can brew up to 3 big cups of coffee at a time. It will also be ready in less than four minutes, which means you can enjoy your first cup as you wait for the rest of your food to cook. Note that the coffee maker retails with a reusable filter and a coffee scoop. Regarding the family-sized griddle, it will allow you to prepare omelets, fry eggs, hash browns, bacons, sausages, pancakes, and many more breakfast options. Regardless of what you’re preparing, ensure you close the lid on the top side, so heat does not escape.
- The toaster oven portion boasts a 30-minute timer and a spacious interior that you can use to fit a 7-inch pizza, up to four slices of artisan bread, or cookies, casseroles, and other meals. After placing your food inside the appliance, setting the time you think it’ll take, and picking the appropriate setting, you can move on to work on other things. When the timer runs out, the appliance will turn off instantly and keep the food warm until you’re ready to come and retrieve it.
- Boasts an aesthetic design
- Retails in two different colors
- Easy to use and clean
- Compact and portable
- Boasts a cool to the touch exterior
- Evenly cooks all meals
- Powerful enough to deliver consistent results even after hours of usage
- Sunpentown is one of the most renowned brands in the realm of kitchen appliances, and since its founding in Taiwan in 1985, the company has become synonymous with durability. This SUNPENTOWN Breakfast Maker proves just that.
- The first hitting that attracted me to this product while reviewing it was the fact it retails with a one-year parts and labor warranty. If that doesn’t show the brand’s faith in the product, they are selling you, then I do not know what does. Besides its durability, it also offers a five-liter capacity toaster oven. This should be more than enough to handle the needs of a standard family. My cousin even uses hers to prepare thanksgiving meals without a hassle.
- Another feature of this appliance worth noting is its speed and the quality of its heating elements. While reviewing the product, the brand mentioned that its heating elements are of the highest quality and that customers should slightly adjust for this while preparing meals: and after putting the appliance to test myself, I have to say, I agree. Meals that needed a combination of 20 minutes and 130 degrees to prepare in a regular toaster oven only needed 115 degrees to cook (for the same duration of time) in this model. Using 130 degrees meant I had to reduce the time to ten minutes.
- So, if you’re scouring the internet for the fastest toaster oven, then this SUNPENTOWN Breakfast Maker could be what you’re looking for.
- Made of stainless-steel metal to ensure durability
- Its glass door is made of heat resistant glass and comes with a 15 minutes timer
- Boasts a 5-liter capacity toaster oven and 4 cups coffee maker
- Easy to use even for total beginners
- The feet are anti-skid
- The exterior surface remains cool to the touch during operations
- Very versatile
- Lightweight and portable
- The third 3-in-1 toaster oven in this enumeration is also from Sunpentown. That’s another proof that the company knows what it’s doing. But what sets this one apart from the previous product?
- Well, when I visited the manufacturer’s page, they claimed that this appliance had been designed with commercial purposes in mind, and the first thing that rang off in my mind was, “If it can handle the needs of a restaurant, then it can certainly handle anything a family throws in it.”
- After the package arrived from Amazon, I put the appliance to the test, and I have to say, it certainly qualified as one of the best restaurant toaster ovens.
- Sunpentown’s customer service is also available 24/7, so if the product runs into any issues, you can instantly get in touch with one of their agents and get help.

When the time you’ve set on the timer runs out, the appliance will automatically shut off to prevent overcooking.

- As you can see from the image above, the product retails with two rack levels to improve your flexibility in the kitchen. The top-level will allow you to place your meal closer to the heating elements whereas the lower rack will allow you to do the opposite. You can even use both to prepare two different meals at the same time.
- Boasts a top non-stick frying pan that is easy to clean

Regardless of what your family’s needs and requirements are, I am confident that at least one of these masterpieces above will meet them. With that in mind, if you’ve found the one, you’ll introduce to your family next, then I urge you to go ahead and place an order right away.
If you’re still having a hard time making the final decision, however, I suggest you try out the first, NOSTALGIA BSET300WH. It will require a small learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll love its versatility, ease of cleaning, durability, sturdiness, futuristic features, and more.
