The rapidity in which a toaster oven can provide a hot meal rivals that of a microwave oven. Considering that toaster ovens are much more versatile than microwave ovens, the countertop appliance may even have an edge in the convenience department. And it browns food, too, adding flavor where the microwave cannot.

The Frigidaire FPCO06D7MS Professional Convection Toaster Oven offers a quick-cooking option for fast and easy meal-making. Featuring four heating elements (two quartz and two halogen), the countertop appliance gives users control over how they prepare meals. An infrared heating feature allows for fast preheating and a reduction for overall cooking time, while a convection fan provides even heating.

All the familiar features consumers have come to expect from well-designed countertop toaster ovens are present: bake, broil, toast, reheat, and warm. Additionally, specialized cooking modes include settings for pizza, bagels, and even cookies. A large LCD display adds a modern flair and is easy to read, allowing for no-hassle mode selection. Measuring less than 1 foot tall, with a footprint of 14 inches by about 18 inches, the appliance is comparable in size to that other ubiquitous countertop oven--but just try making toast in the microwave.
