- If you’ve been following my reviews for a while, then you know that I love starting them on a high note with the best of the best, and that’s exactly what I’ll do in this enumeration.
- Breville BOV450XL Mini Smart Oven retails with Smart element IQ, which are heating elements of the highest quality in the realm of toaster ovens. They will deliver precise and stable heat throughout the cooking process to ensure perfect results at all times. While testing the appliance, it delivered perfectly and evenly toasted slices in less than 2 minutes. That said, these heating elements also present a slight challenge. To accommodate their high quality, you’re required to adjust the timer accordingly, so your meals do not come out burned. The other choice is to pick from the eight settings that have already been fit on the appliance. These settings include roast, broil, bake, toast, bagel, pizza, reheat, and cookies – and picking one of them allows the appliance to set the time and temperature that is required to deliver the best results.
- Speaking of the eight settings, the reheat setting will allow you to warm up your leftovers in less than 30 seconds and the bagel setting will allow you to toast only the cut side of your bagel slices. It also does it in a way that the outside comes out crusty, but the inside remains warm and soft. If you’ve never baked with a toaster oven before and think that you’ll be using the setting repeatedly in the future, then here is a detailed guide on how to bake using a toaster oven.
- After putting your meal in the toaster oven, setting the time required, and adjusting the temperature accordingly, you can go on doing something else, such as preparing your coffee or folding your clothes. When the timer runs out and your meal is ready to eat, it will automatically switch off and let out a beeping noise to notify you. If you’re too held up and cannot get to the appliance right away, don’t worry either. It will keep your food warm until you’re ready to retrieve it.
- As you will see on the toaster oven’s page on Amazon, the appliance also retails with a 1-year limited product warranty. If that doesn’t prove that Breville has faith in the machine they’re selling you, then I don’t know what will. In the package you’ll also find a removable crumb tray. This is the part of the tool that will be responsible for collecting all the dirt and debris that fall off of your cooked meals – which in turn makes cleaning a breeze. To clean the removable crumb tray, simply take it out, empty its content in a sink or trash bin, and wipe it off using a damp cloth. When you’re done doing that, put it back into the appliance and go on with the cooking. For more thorough cleaning, check out this detailed guide on how to clean the interior of a toaster oven.

- Thanks to its powerful build, this Mueller Austria Toaster Oven delivered the most consistent quality compared to the other toaster ovens I tested. All the slices it made were golden brown all over without any white lines or patches, and the appliance maintained this level of quality even after multiple, back to back batches.
- The masterpiece has also been fitted with four different cooking functions, namely baking, keeping food warm, toasting, and broiling. Couple this with its three rack positions and you have one of the best reliable toaster ovens. For those not accustomed to how a toaster ovens works, the three rack positions will allow you to deliver just the right amount of heat to your meals. If the food you’re cooking requires a lot of heat, then you can place it on the highest rack position that is the closest to the heating elements. If your meal requires a small amount of heat, however, then you can place it on the bottom rack position that is the furthest from the heating elements.
- What’s more? You can even use all three rack positions at the same time when preparing meals that don’t need a high temperature. For instance, sometimes I use my Mueller Austria Toaster Oven’s top rack to cook cookies while cheese is melting on the bottom rack. That said, ensure you do not open the glass door until all foods are readily cooked. Doing this lets out the hot air inside the appliance, which in turn, increases the cooking time by a huge percentage.

- Delivers perfectly and evenly cooked meals

- The first thing you’ll notice after visiting Comfee’ CFO-BB102 Toaster Oven’s product page is that it retails in three different colors, namely white, stainless steel, and black. This makes it the perfect gift if you have a loved one’s special occasion coming up (wedding or party) because you can get the appliance in their favorite color. The second thing is its one-year product warranty. If it runs into any problems within the first year of acquiring it, then the company will fix or replace it, at no extra cost to you. To make sure that the company will hold up their end of the bargain, I reviewed Comfee’s customer service rating, and I have to say, I was impressed. They’re available 24/7 – 365.
- The appliance also retails with a 30-minute timer, a non-stick interior, flexible rack positions, and three different cooking functions (toast, broil, and bake.) All these settings in one appliance make it one of the best high-end toaster ovens out there today.
- Very versatile

- This list would be incomplete if we hadn’t included a masterpiece from Black+Decker. The brand has been around since 1910, and if more than a century in the industry proves anything, it’s that they know what their customers require – and that’s exactly what this Black+Decker TO1313SBD Toaster Oven delivers.
- If you love toasters with retro designs, then you’ll love this masterpiece. But don’t let its design fool you into thinking that it’s subpar in the cooking department. For starters, it had been fitted with an even toast technology. This implies that its interior has been specifically designed to blow hot air around and ensure each meal comes out evenly cooked and in a timely manner. The toaster oven has also been fitted with a temperature adjustment knob, a 30-minute timer, and an auto shut off feature: all of which improve its reliability.

- From the product’s image above, I’m sure you can tell that Hamilton Beach 31344D Toaster Oven’s glass door opens up and out of the way. This ensures that you do not spill anything on it while retrieving your food, which in turn makes cleaning the glass door easier.
- It has also been fitted with two rack positions and three cooking functions (toast, broil, and bake.) The cool to the touch exterior will make sure all the heat is trapped inside the toaster oven to ensure faster cooking times, which at the same time protecting those who come into contact with the appliance.
- Offers two rack positions
- Spacious interior that can serve a standard family
- Easy to use and clean

- I know this stroke of genius is not from the most reputable toaster oven brands, but if you give it a chance, I promise it will surprise you. I used it to toast more than 50 artisan bread slices back to back, and the last one to go into the appliance came out just as perfectly toasted as the first one to go in.
- The appliance also boasts an interior bulb. This will light up during operations, which will allow you to track the cooking progress of all your meals. If you see that your food is perfectly browned but the timer you had set hasn’t run out yet, you can simply retreat it and avoid overcooking.
- Has a simple design

I know your goal is to choose the best 4-slice toaster oven that can deliver perfectly toasted slices in a timely manner. But as my reviews insinuate, that doesn’t mean you should neglect other features that will improve your cooking experiences in the long run, such as multiple rack positions, removable crumb trays, non-stick interiors, consistency, durability, ease of use, and more.
Better yet, as I promised at the beginning of the post, I’ll mention my favorite from the list above for those who are having a hard time making a final, educated decision. If I were to choose, I’d pick the Breville BOV450XL Toaster Oven as the best four-slice toaster ovens. This masterpiece delivered all the features I just mentioned above, and it is also durable.
