Good Question: What's The Best Toaster Oven?

Dear Kitchen,

I'm hoping you can provide a recommendation for a good toaster oven. I got rid of my years-old, $10 bargain-buy toaster oven when I moved.

I'm looking for a reliable, medium-sized toaster oven that is under $100 and is easy to use and clean. Am I seeking the impossible?

Thanks for your question. Toaster ovens are great in the summer. They don't heat up the kitchen like the oven and they heat up much quicker.

We have a few tips to get you started and we're sure readers will add more suggestions in the comments. Have you seen this list from Good Housekeeping? They suggest toaster ovens from Rival, Oster, and Hamilton Beach. recommends the $79.99 T-Fal Avante. "This model, with convection feature and four-position oven rack, does well as an oven," says Consumer Reports (subscription required).
