WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TOASTER OVEN AND A COUNTERTOP OVEN?
The differences between a toaster oven and a countertop oven may appear slight, but the effects can be large for your kitchen. When it comes to determining which countertop appliance best fits your space best or which cooking methods you want to prioritize, consider comparing size and features.
Size: In comparison to a traditional toaster oven, countertop ovens are larger in size and thus can be used to cook entire meals. Toaster oven capacity will vary from 0.3 cubic feet to 1.0 cubic feet, whereas some countertop ovens can fit an entire 9x13 baking pan.
Features: Both toaster ovens and countertop ovens come equipped with baking and cooking capabilities. However, by heating to higher temperatures than toaster ovens, countertop ovens come equipped with unique features, such as roasting, broiling and, with select models, convection cooking. Select KitchenAid® countertop ovens offer additional versatility with settings like proof for bread bakers, dehydrate for making foods like homemade jerky and air fry for healthier alternatives to deep fried favorites.
