If you, like many of us here at Kitchn, also live in a tiny apartment, you might not see the value in small appliances — at least, not in those apart from your basic toaster or blender. After all, why waste your already limited counter space on yet another thing when your oven and microwave could probably carry out the same functions? Well, those who do own such small appliances — namely, toaster ovens — will tell you that the tiny little machines can actually do so much more. The key is to find the right toaster oven for your needs, and for that, we recommend Breville. Perhaps known best for their top-of-the-line coffee machines, they also have a range of popular toaster ovens that you can’t go wrong with.

Contributor Marshall didn’t become a full toaster oven convert until trying Breville’s Smart Oven Pro model, and we found something very similar on sale now for Prime Day. Their Smart Toaster Oven, a more streamlined model, is now 25 percent off, so keep reading to see what makes it perfect for just about every kitchen.

What is the Breville Smart Toaster Oven?

Although we love all the bells and whistles that come with the more hi-tech Smart Oven Pro model, the regular smart toaster oven is more suitable for the home cook who’s just looking to simplify their everyday meal prep process. What makes it so convenient is that it has eight different cooking functions: toast, bake, bagel, roast, reheat, broil, pizza, and cookies. So, whether you’re looking to roast a chicken, warm up last night’s leftovers, or bake dessert for the whole family, this one little machine has you covered. And by little, we mean it’s totally compact! Measuring 16.5 inches wide and just over 10 inches high, it’s not some hulking obstruction that’s going to eat up all your counter space.

As for her own smart oven, Marshall loves its ability to make two different meals at once in half the time, as well as its intuitive design. “The Smart Oven actually makes it easy to toggle between functions — something I’ve never even bothered to do with other toaster ovens,” she wrote. “Things are clearly labeled, and any adjustments within each setting (like number of slices of bread and desired darkness) are easy to figure out as well.”

What Amazon Reviewers are Saying

Average Rating: 4.5/5

“This is our second Breville of the same model. Our first we had for 10+ years, and it was still running, but [our] son loved it so much, he wanted to take it to college, so we bought a new one for us. Easy to use, easy to clean, and just enough settings. We use it more than our oven.” — Jessica

“Not too big, not too small. Roomy enough to get baking pans in and out easily … [I] like not heating up my entire kitchen!” — GG

“This is so easy to use and so much quicker than the oven. Now after a really busy day, I don’t have to wait forever on my food, and I’m having fun experimenting with the types of meals I can make in it.” — Jenny

If you would also like a quicker, more convenient way to make all kinds of delicious meals (or maybe you’re looking for the perfect gift for a relative, friend, or soon-to-be college student), now’s the time to grab your own smart toaster oven. Your kitchen will become all the more functional because of it.
