That said, compact designs weren’t the only things I was looking at while coming up with this list. While I know that’s the reason you decided to click on this post, I also acknowledge that the best small toaster oven has to be:

- If you’re scouring the internet looking for a small unit that will also double up as one of the most aesthetic toaster ovens, then this KBS Toaster Oven could be exactly what you’re looking for. When the package arrived at my doorstep from Amazon, I started by placing the appliance in several kitchen spaces with different interior decors, and it complemented all of them. That said, aesthetics aren’t the only thing this masterpiece has to offer. The unit has been fitted with 8 different preset cooking functions. These include cake, French fry, pizza, chicken, steak, toast, dehydration and thaw.
- The convection setting implies that the appliance has been designed with an inbuilt fan that will blow hot air around inside the appliance for fast and even cooking. That said, if you’ve been using these versatile tools for a while, then you know not all meals are supposed to be cooked using the convection setting. Here is a detailed guide on how to bake using a toaster oven that will better show you the different stages when a convection setting is supposed to be used.
- Inside the package you will receive, you’ll also find 6 different accessories that’ll make your work easier in the kitchen. These accessories include recipes, instruction manuals, an oven rack, a baking pan, an air fryer basket, and a removable crumb tray.
- Another feature of the KBS toaster oven worth noting is its clear see-through glass door. Since the interior of the toaster oven has been fitted with a light bulb, the glass door will allow you to monitor the cooking progress of your meals. This will particularly come in handy when you’re cooking meals you’ve never cooked before. If the timer is still running but you see through the glass door that your meal has been cooked to your liking, you can feel free to switch off the appliance and retrieve your meal.
- Boasts an aesthetic design
- Easy to use and clean
- Package includes a lot of accessories
- Fit with an interior light bulb
- Very versatile
- Fitted with a natural convection
- I first came across this masterpiece while testing products for a review on the best restaurant toaster ovens I was creating a while ago. The product performed so well that I promised myself that I’d always give it a chance when creating a product review guide that fits its functions. Also, if the product performed well enough to use in a restaurant, then you can rest assured that your home’s needs will be a walk in the park for it. Stick with me and I’ll tell you why.
- The first thing I loved about this masterpiece is the fact it retails with heating elements of the highest quality (double infrared heating high-efficiency quartz and ceramic infrared heating elements.) They perform so well that when you visit the product’s page on the manufacturer’s website, one of the things they assure you is that the appliance will adjust the heat intensity depending on the setting you select so it doesn’t overcook your meals.
- Add to that the fact the tool has been fitted with two rack positions for improved flexibility. When preparing meals that didn’t require a higher heat intensity like cookies, I could use both rack positions at the same time to save time.
- Retails from one of the most reputable brands
- Very versatile
- The feet are anti-skid even on wet surfaces
- The exterior surface remains cool to the touch after use
- Easy to use and clean
- The power cord is sufficiently long
- If I’m being honest with you, I didn’t think this product was going to make it into this enumeration. While researching the products online, the first thing I noticed about Comfee’ CFO-BB101 Toaster Oven was its design, which honestly didn’t please me, so I skipped the product right away. However, as I kept reading about other products, the name of this masterpiece kept popping up all over the internet, until at last, I decided to put my biases aside and review the product fairly. To say, what people had to say about it amazed me would be an understatement.
- Some people even mentioned that they had been using the model for years now and that it had never run into any issues. So, I decided to place an order and take it through a series of tests myself. When the package arrived from Amazon, the first thing I tested was its consistency. I went out and acquired 30 loaves of bread, and decided I was going to toast all the slices using the appliance back-to-back, without giving it the chance to rest. Needless to say, the product’s performance exceeded my expectations once again. The last slice to go in came out just as perfectly and evenly cooked as the first one to go in. Better yet, they were all toasted to perfection, with their outsides crusty but their insides soft and warm.
- Another thing I loved about this masterpiece was the fact it retails in three different colors, namely black, silver, and white. This means that if you use this black model and love its performance, you can get it for another person as a gift in a different color.
- Retails in three different colors
- Powerful enough to handle a family’s needs
- Easy to clean, thanks to its removable crumb tray
- Has a built-in timer of 30 minutes
- Delivers delicious meals consistently
- Easy to use
- Do you, like me, like getting appliances with unique designs? Appliances that assure that anyone who sets their eyes on them will have something to say? If your answer to both questions is a big, bold yes, then this Dash DMTO100GBAQ04 Toaster Oven could be what you’re looking for.
- That said, not everyone will like its design. You’ll either love it or hate it. When I came across the product, I showed its image to two of my friends, and while two of us liked the unusual design, my other friend downright hated it. Anyway, if you’re one of those who like it, then I know you’ll be pleased to know that this masterpiece has been backed by a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty. This means that if the product runs into any issues within its first year, the manufacturer will either fix it or replace it for you right away, at no extra cost to you.
- In addition to that, the unit has been fitted with 550 watts of power and the package you will receive will also come with several accessories, including a recipe database access, a recipe book, a crumb tray, an oven rack, and a baking tray. What’s more? If you like the appliance, feel free to get it for a friend as a wedding gift because just like the product we looked at before, this one retails in four different colors, namely yellow, pink, aqua, and red.
- Boasts a unique design
- Backed by a one-year manufacturer’s warranty
- Comes with accessories that improve your flexibility in the kitchen
- The perfect gift if you have a loved one’s wedding or party coming up
- Easy to use even for total beginners
- Suits different kitchens with different interior decors
- Retails from a reputable brand
- The sad truth about toaster ovens is the fact they spend 90 percent of their life sitting idle on our kitchen counters. With that in mind, the least you can do is get a toaster oven that also qualifies as one of the best aesthetic toaster ovens, so while it’s sitting idle on your kitchen counter, it’s also boosting the outlook of your kitchen. That is what motivated me to include this masterpiece from Balmuda in this enumeration. The product boasts a design that looks like it’s straight out of the future.
- The features it has been fitted with didn’t disappoint either. The modes it retails with include oven, pastry, pizza, sandwich bread, and artisan bread mode. I do not know about you, but these are more than enough to handle the needs of my household.
- During my testing sessions, I also noticed that BALMUDA K01M-WS Toaster Oven delivered perfectly and evenly toasted slices in less than 2 minutes. That is as fast as some of the fastest toaster ovens, and I think it’s due to its natural convection design. If you’re not familiar with what a natural convection feature is, it simply implies that unlike convection toaster ovens that retail with inbuilt fans that blow hot air around, toaster ovens with natural convections do not have this fan. Instead, their interiors have been specifically designed to push hot air around (equally) in all directions inside the appliance for fast and even cooking. Just note that the exterior surface tends to get slightly hot during operations.
- Boasts a clean compact design
- Fitted with five different cooking modes
- Retails in three different colors
- Has a cool to the touch exterior
- Cooks fast
- To ensure that this masterpiece can handle anything you throw in it, the manufacturing company, Gourmet, fitted it with 650 watts of power. That isn’t as high as some of the most powerful toaster ovens, but I tested the appliance myself and I can confidently say that the power level is sufficient to handle a family’s needs.
- In addition to its power, Elite Gourmet ETO-224 Toaster Oven also boasts a cool to the touch exterior. I have children in my household, so I always have to ensure that the toaster oven I introduce to my family will be safe to use around them. If you do not know what a cool to the touch exterior implies, it simply means that regardless of how long the appliance stays in operation, its outer surfaces will remain totally cool. This ensures that anyone who comes into contact with it doesn’t sustain any serious burn injuries.
- While protecting everyone in your household, this masterpiece will also reduce the cleaning workload in your kitchen by a significant percentage. The tool has been fitted with a removable crumb tray that will collect all the dirt and debris that fall off of your cooked meals. And to clean the removable crumb tray, all you ought to do is take it out, empty its contents into a bin or sink, and wipe it clean using a damp cloth. For thorough cleaning sessions, check out this guide on how to clean the interior of a toaster oven.
- Another feature worth noting is the fact the appliance retails with a see-through glass. As I noted before, this will allow you to visually track the cooking progress of your meals (this will particularly come in handy when cooking certain meals for the first time.)
- Delivered some of the most delicious toast slices
- Very powerful
- Package includes a wire rack and a bake pan
- Easy to use and clean
If this guide has helped you find a product you think will be a perfect match for your needs, then I urge you to go ahead and place an order right away while stock lasts. However, if like most people, you’re having a hard time making a final decision based on the list alone, I’m still here to help you out.
If I were to pick a product from the list above, I’d pick the Panasonic NB-G110P toaster oven model. The product is aesthetic, versatile, consistent, portable, reliable, and boasts a cool to the touch exterior that will protect everyone in your household.
