What experts liked
Tailor made for breads, individual pizzas, leftovers, and frozen foods, the infrared elements heat instantly and efficiently with no preheating required, and deliver fast results.
- Foodal
The double Infrared light cooks food up to 40 percent faster.
- Delish
When you don’t have enough time on your hands, the compact Panasonic FlashXpress (appx. $117) can come to the rescue. It cooks up to 40 percent quicker than other models, thanks to ceramic and quartz heating elements that don’t require preheating.
- Wiki EZ Vid
The Panasonic FlashXpress Toaster Oven employs a double infrared heating system that cooks faster than other toaster ovens. The established presets nearly guarantee well-cooked food.
- CNET
Not only is Panasonic's toaster the smallest oven on this roundup, it's also a powerful addition to your kitchen that uses infrared technology to eliminate the need for it to preheat, thus cooking your food 40 percent faster than traditional convection ovens.
- Bustle
It makes use of double-infrared technology (both ceramic and quartz elements provide near and far heating, respectively) which does two important things: it eliminates the need to preheat the unit (or if you’d prefer to look at it another way, the annoying wait for the toaster to get hot), and it cooks food as much as 40% faster than normal heating elements.
- Groom and Style
This compact toaster oven was among the best at evenly toasting bread, baking cookies, and bringing frozen foods to life. It performed as well as or better than competitors that cost significantly more.
- The New York Times
The take home from this is that it does not need much space on your kitchen counter, but it can make you 4 bread toasts or 9-inch pizza at once.
- The Brilliant Kitchen
Yes, there is an interior light, but it is not a normal interior light. The top near-infrared light cooks food but it also doubles as an interior light. You can press the LIGHT button to temporarily turn it on so yo can see inside without opening the door.
- Amy Says Cook
What experts didn't like
Some users on Amazon have noted that the power button (and others) fail after some use. Several reviewers report they need to repeatedly push, continuously hold down, or wiggle and jiggle the buttons to get them engaged.
- Foodal
The Panasonic is on the small side, so don’t expect it to accommodate a 9-inch pizza. Also, the buttons are fiddly, the temperature setting is calibrated for Celsius, and the timer only goes up to 25 minutes.
- CNET
This Panasonic isn’t a substitute for your kitchen oven; it doesn’t have a convection function, and it isn’t meant for baking bread or roasting meat.
- Groom and Style
For accomplishing bigger tasks, consider getting our other picks
- The New York Times
Limited interior space that can’t roast a chicken for instance.
- The Brilliant Kitchen
There is no convection cooking.

An Overview On Toaster Ovens

If you’ve never used a toaster oven, the first thing you need to know is that it’s not a toaster. Mind you, you can make toast with it, but that’s hardly its only use or even the primary one. Depending on the household, it can fill a surprisingly wide gap between the microwave and a traditional oven. Need your snacks warmed up quickly, but hate that microwave sogginess? Need your potatoes, pies or side dishes baked while your main course is taking up the oven? The toaster oven is a perfect solution, and it does all that while using less power.

Depending on the size of the toaster oven, it can even be used to cook those main dishes. Many models have modes tailored to pizza, for instance. The same goes for baked goods like cookies, cupcakes and bread, which toaster ovens are particularly good at in small batches. And finally, they’re a life-saver when foods need thawing out quickly.

How does it do all this? The heating methods vary depending on the model. Like traditional ovens, many toaster ovens use convection heating or at least offer it as an option for baking. That essentially means there’s a fan inside the oven to circulate the heat, and while it’s not as crucial in a small area as it is with a full-size oven, convection does generally mean things will cook more evenly. Other models make up for the lack of convection with multiple heating elements placed around the oven, like the Panasonic FlashXpress Compact Toaster Oven and its “double infrared heating.”

As you might imagine, an appliance that heats all these foods is going to get dirty. Luckily, most models are as easy to clean out as a traditional toaster, if not easier. There’s generally a tray at the bottom that catches crumbs, melted cheese or other debris. Pull it out and wipe it down, and most of your cleaning is done.

DWYM Fun Fact

Toasters and toaster ovens may be a relatively modern appliance, but humans have been making toast for nearly as long as they’ve been grinding grain to make bread. We know that the ancient Romans toasted their bread not so much to enjoy it with jam and butter, but to preserve it.

Once other options were presented, it didn’t take long for people to get tired of charring their bread over an open flame. Just 14 years after Thomas Edison’s first light bulb, Scotsman Alan MacMasters gave the world the first electric toaster in 1893. It took another couple decades for the pop-up toaster to appear on the scene, courtesy of Charles Strife in 1919.

The Toaster Oven Buying Guide

  • The primary thing you’ll want to consider when buying a toaster oven is size. Bigger is not necessarily better, especially if you’ve got limited counter space and you’re primarily using it to heat up snacks. If you’re making the occasional meal with it, scan the “quick-select” settings for a general idea of what a particular model can handle, but also check the measurements. Just because there’s a “pizza” setting doesn’t necessarily mean you can fit a large pizza inside. Many larger toaster ovens also include multiple racks, which is a plus for baking cookies or making toast for large groups.
  • Another quick way to gauge what meals a toaster oven can handle is to take a quick look at the maximum setting on the timer. If it only goes up to 20 minutes or so, that means it’s not exactly built for roasting a turkey.
  • Convection heating is a big plus, but may not be a total necessity if you’re just warming up bagels. The wattage can tell you a lot about how powerful the heating element is, with 1500 being a good median. Of course, that high wattage setting will also mean it’s using more power, which can defeat the purpose if you’re using it to save energy on side dishes and reheats.
  • Just like regular ovens, most toaster ovens will need time to reheat, though it generally won’t take nearly as long as their larger counterparts. Check reviews to see how long that tends to be. Some models with alternative heating elements power on with almost no preheat at all, which can be a big plus for those on the go.
  • Finally, consider the cleanup. Most models do have a crumb tray to catch all the cooking debris, but some can be easier to remove than others. As for the rest of the interior, non-stick stainless steel or similar materials are a plus. Something that gets this much use is going to see its share of stains.
