- If you have checked out my guide on ‘how to pick the best toaster ovens’, then you remember that one of the main points I emphasized is that you should always start by separating them according to their manufacturing companies and only pick those retailing from reputable brands. That is because, unlike lesser-known brands, leading brands have a reputation to maintain which means they will go above and beyond to ensure that all their units perform as advertised. This Cuisinart Steam & Convection Oven is one of such appliances.
- The fact that Cuisinart is best known for its ability to combine retro designs and futuristic features in all their toaster oven models has been perfectly reflected in this masterpiece. It doesn’t disappoint in the cooking department either. As you will notice after visiting the product’s page on Amazon, the unit has been fitted with 1800 watts of power that will allow it to handle anything your family throws in it.
- The unit has also been fitted with a specialized bread proofing technology that will allow you to bake bread better and faster while at the same time improving moisture retention. Couple these settings with the 120-minute timer and the wide temperature range that the unit delivers, and you have a steam oven that also easily qualifies as one of the best reliable toaster ovens.
- Very powerful
- Lightweight and portable
- Boasts a compact design to help you save on space
- Has a large interior design that can accommodate a 4.5 lbs. chicken
- A specialized bread proofing setting included
- Easy to use and clean
- If the Cuisinart model wasn’t sufficiently powerful for your liking, then here is a slightly more powerful steam toaster oven I’m sure will catch your attention. This F.BLUMLEIN Steam Convection Oven delivers 1550 watts of power and has also been fitted with a convection setting to back up this power level. If you are new to the realm of toaster ovens and do not know what a convection setting is, it simply implies that the unit retails with an inbuilt fan that will blow hot air around inside the appliance for fast and even cooking.
- It has also been fitted with 10 different cooking functions, namely defrost, preheat, sterilization, fermentation, convection oven, grill, hi-temp steam, steam, and combi (convection+grill+steam.) If these do not make the unit the most versatile unit in this enumeration, then I do not know what does.
- If you have children in your household and you’re looking for a unit that will allow them to prepare a meal without a hassle, then this appliance is also what you are looking for. After acquiring mine, I operated it once before my daughter who had never used a toaster oven and that was enough to get her up to speed. She can now prepare whatever she desires using the appliance without a hassle.
- Has a cool and aesthetic design
- Easy to use even for total beginners
- Is anti-slide even on wet surfaces
- Very powerful
- Sturdy and durable
- Fitted with 10 different cooking functions
- Will cook fast and deliver delicious results
- Not all of us care about aesthetics or all the bells and whistles. Some of us only care about investing in a simple unit that can deliver as advertised, and that is exactly what this Tovala Gen 2 Smart Steam Oven delivers. Even though the unit only retails with five different cooking settings (toast, steam, reheat, bake, and broil), it executes all of them perfectly.
- The only downside I found on this unit is that it only retails in one color (this black shade above), but if that doesn’t faze you or you think it’ll perfectly blend in with your kitchen interior décor, then I promise you are in luck.
- As you will notice on the first button on the top right corner of the appliance, the unit has also been fitted with a ‘scan’ setting, a feature that will come in handy when you’re preparing meals you have never prepared before. Use the scan setting to scan the barcode on hundreds of different groceries (trader joe’s frozen foods) to cook them perfectly at the touch of a button.
- If the appliance automatically recognizes the meal, it will adjust the temperature and timer to levels that ensure perfect results. Add to this the fact that the manufacturing company has also included a library of chef’s recipes on the appliance, and you have one of the most reliable toaster ovens out there today. The library of recipes will also come in handy if you’d like to learn about new meals, you’ve never thought about preparing before. After using the recipes for a while, you can feel free to customize and make them your own.
- Backed by a one year and 30-day satisfaction
- The feet are anti-skid even on wet surfaces
- Very versatile
- Will cook faster than most regular toaster ovens
- Fitted with 5 cooking modes
- Can scan meals and automatically prepare them for you
- Do you have a loved one’s birthday party or wedding coming up and you are looking for the best present toaster oven you can get them? If yes, then this BALMUDA The Toaster | Steam Oven could be exactly what you are looking for.
- The unit retails in three different colors, namely black, gray, and white. The fact you have different choices to pick from improves your chances of getting the unit in the recipient’s favorite color. If you will get the appliance for yourself, then the same thing applies. You’ll be in a great position to invest in a unit that perfectly matches your kitchen’s interior décor.
- In addition to its aesthetics, it also performed exceptionally in the cooking department. For starters, the unit has been fitted with a revolutionary heating technology. This means that the appliance will rapidly heat the air and develop the meal with a thin layer of steam. This allows the toaster oven to lightly toast the surface of your meals while keeping the interior flavor and moisture from escaping.
- Boasts a clear compact design
- Retails with a revolutionary technology
- Easy to use and clean

- The power cord is sufficiently long

- The last, but by no means the least steam toaster oven in our detailed guide is the Elite Gourmet ERO-2008NFFP. I’ll be honest with you, the thing that most impressed me about this tool wasn’t its performance. It was its ability to clean easily.
- Note though; this doesn’t mean that the product will disappoint in any sense of the word in the cooking department, NO. It simply means that its ease of cleaning isn’t something I was used to seeing in most toaster ovens. To ensure that it can handle everything you throw in it, Elite Gourmet (the manufacturing company), has fitted this masterpiece with 1500 watts of power and a wide temperature range going up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Inside the package you will receive from Amazon, you’ll find several accessories including a rotisserie spit, fork assembly, rotisserie removal tongs, slide-out crumb tray, pan removable handle clip, roasting pan, and a wire grill rack.
