- I won’t lie to you. The first thing that attracted me to this professional toaster oven is its door design as you can see in the image above. The single pull handle will open both doors with ease and convenience, which will come in handy when you’re holding things in one hand and don’t have anywhere to put them down on.

The removable drip tray will catch all the excess oil removed from your meals.
