Can a Countertop Oven Replace a Regular Oven?
Many countertop ovens come with robust features and settings, letting you do as much as a regular oven—and sometimes more. However, they have less capacity for multiple dishes or large meals. Deciding to replace your full-size oven with a countertop version comes down to what and how much you want to make.
Many countertop ovens include features normally found on regular, full-sized ovens, including:
The KitchenAid® Digital Countertop Oven with Air Fry even goes beyond the capabilities of most full-sized ovens. With the No-Flip Air Fry Basket and 360° Air Fry System it's easy to make everything from french fries to delicate fish.
Most households will still want to have a full-sized oven for the larger capacity it provides. Owning both a countertop oven and a regular oven can give you extra flexibility when creating a variety of meals. When you’re making a single-dish meal like a sheet-pan dinner, a countertop oven lets you skip heating your full-sized oven. This means you’re likely to use less energy and spend less time waiting for it to heat up.
A countertop oven is also perfect for cooking multiple dishes with different cooking requirements at the same time. Roast meats using a convection setting in one oven and bake a delicate souffle in the other.
