If you own a toaster oven, chances are, you're not using it for much more than heating up a couple slices of whole-wheat bread or an English muffin. Maybe that's because, like us, you weren't even aware of just how much a good countertop convection toaster oven can do for you.
Trust us: This 1,800 watt "smart oven" is a real game changer. To start, it makes a whole lot more than toast. Like your full-sized oven, it can bake pizza, roast whole chickens and bake cookies. And, it speeds your cooking time by as much as 30 percent. There are nine menu functions that suggest the ideal temperature and time for everything you want to cook—and remember what you chose for the next use. We say, pretty smart indeed.
