1. Dash Convection Toaster Oven

We are big fans of Dash appliances, and their toaster oven is another goodie from the brand. Despite its compact size (16.8 x 13.3 x 16.1 inches), it can toast, bake, broil, and even air-fry our favorite snacks. It’s also incredibly easy to use, comes with six pre-set settings, and includes accessories like an air-fry basket, baking pan, and a rotisserie skewer.

Cleanup is a breeze (I own one, trust me!), thanks to the nonstick interior of this KitchenAid oven.
