- It also comes with an adjustable thermostat, a 60-minute timer, toast shade selector, and an auto shut off feature. The auto shut off feature will be activated when the timer you had set runs out. To improve your flexibility in the kitchen, accessories you’ll find the package from Amazon include an air fryer rack/basket, a baking pan, oven rack, and removable crumb tray.

- Retails in three different colors

- This list would be incomplete without a product from Oster. This Oster TSSTTVGMDG Toaster Oven model boasts a turbo convection baking technology to help it cook faster and more evenly and has also been designed with a spacious interior that can accommodate 6 slices of bread or a 12” pizza.
- As you can see from the image above, the unit also boasts a digital display and 10 pre-programmed cooking functions. These functions include bagel, toast, pizza, bake, broil, cookies, warm, defrost, reheat, and pizza.
- Has been fitted with 2 oven racks so it can cook multiple meals simultaneously

- Founded in Japan close to a century ago (1939), Toshiba has become one of the leading brands around the world when it came to designing kitchen appliances with distinctive styles and advanced technological features.
- This Toshiba Digital Toaster Oven model is no exception. After it arrived from Amazon, the first thing I did was place it in multiple kitchens with different interior decors to test its aesthetics and color combination. Needless to say, the fact it made it to the enumeration means it complemented all of them seamlessly. The next thing I tested on the appliance was its consistency. I acquired 15 loaves of artisan bread and toasted every single slice in the oven back to back without switching it off. If it handled that, then nothing you throw in it from your kitchen can slow it down.
- Also, if you’ve been following my posts for a while, you know that I prefer testing toaster ovens’ consistency using loaves of bread because I’ll have many results to compare from. With that in mind, the last slice to go into the appliance came out just as perfectly toasted as the first one to go in. While testing its consistency, I also noticed the unit’s spacious interior. It has a capacity that can fit an 8 x 12-inch casserole dish, 6 slices of artisan bread, or a 12-inch pizza. I don’t know you, but that is usually sufficient to accommodate my home’s needs. I have four kids (my husband included.)
- While reviewing its abilities online, I also noticed that the company had claimed that the appliance could be safely used around children without worries. So, after the appliance had been in operation for around an hour, I touched its exterior surfaces and they were just as cool as the room’s temperature. This means that the toaster oven has been perfectly insulated, so anyone that comes into contact with it during operations will not sustain any burn injuries. The fact, heat does not reach the exterior surface of the toaster oven also implies that it will be trapped inside the appliance, which will, in turn, result in faster cooking time. Speaking of cooking duration, Toshiba Digital Toaster Oven has been fitted with convection technology. This means it has an inbuilt fan that will blow hot air around inside the appliance for faster and more even cooking. Couple the convection setting with the 1700 watts of power the appliance delivers and you have one of the most reliable toaster ovens.
- It has a digital display that you can use to adjust the temperature (the range goes up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit) and choose from the 10 pre-programmed cook functions, including reheat, warm, defrost, bagel, toast, cookies, pizza, broil, and bake. The reheat setting will warm up your leftover meals in less than a minute whereas the bagel setting will toast only one side of your meals. Also, if you activate the bagel setting, adjust the rack position so your meal can move closer to the active heating elements. That’s why the manufacturing company included three rack positions (for your convenience.)
- Comes from a reputable brand
- Has an LED control you can use to pick from the settings
- Feet are anti-skid even on wet surfaces
- The exterior surface remains cool during operations
- Very powerful and sturdy
- Easy to clean
If I were to pick from the enumeration above, I would choose the Bialetti 35047 Toaster Oven as the best black stainless-steel toaster oven. It will not only look great on any kitchen counter, but it is also easy & safe to use, convenient, functional, reliable, consistent and delivers some of the most delicious meals I’ve ever tasted.
That said, if you had already found a product that best meets your needs and requirements, don’t let me change your mind. Toshiba Digital Toaster Oven simply appealed to my personal preferences and the one you had in mind initially might be more suited for yours.
