As someone who has an undying passion for baking, finding a perfect toaster oven would be what I have always dreamed of. I bake cakes, pastries, buns and pizzas all the time, and large batches of them because there is often not enough to go around. The Oster TSSTTVMNDG made my life easier by being very affordable and the best large toaster oven ever.
Designed in simple black and made stylish with slightly curved sides and a digital control panel, the Oster TSSTTVMNDG has a wide interior that fits enough for a family. Not only can this spacious toaster oven take a 13-inch by 9-inch pan, it will also allow you to roast a whole chicken.
This large toaster oven is perfect for casseroles, pizzas, and any other large servings of food. Large roast? Pizza? Just adjust the broil rack with the two rack positions inside the toaster oven.
The digital control panel is conveniently placed on the right hand side of the toaster oven (though perhaps not so conveniently for left handers,) with simple and intuitive buttons for the timer, temperature and functions. There are also Start and Stop buttons as this is not a dial-and-start toaster oven.
Choose from a range of cooking functions available: Toast, Bake, Broil, Warm, Defrost and Pizza. The Convection Bake is my favorite. When I choose this function, the toaster oven cooks with the convection fan on, and I’m assured that the baking or cooking will be done more evenly and quickly.
For the veteran bakers and cooks, you don’t have to follow what the toaster oven thinks is the best temperature and time for baking or broiling. Just select Bake, Broil or Convection Bake, and when the toaster oven shows the preset time and temperature, you may adjust them to your own recipe.
The temperature ranges from 150 to 450F, which is a decent range, though it may be rather annoying that degrees may be added or removed only one by one. This toaster oven heats up accurately though, and holds heat well for efficient cooking.
What I really appreciate is the integrated interior light inside the toaster oven, which comes on automatically when cooking starts. You may switch it off or turn it on by pressing the Light button. I wish all toaster ovens included this. As for cleaning, it’s easy and the toaster oven comes with a crumb tray just like many others.
One thing that this large toaster oven doesn’t do well is toast, and that’s expected. The heating elements are too far away. This is not a toaster oven meant for toast. For that you should get either a pop up toaster or a good 2 slice toaster oven.
The Oster TSSTTVMNDG has everything I want from a slick design to simple controls and top performance. It is modern, durable, and powerful. Best of all, it is really affordable for such a large convection toaster oven of its kind. Click here to get this toaster oven with free shipping.
