The area on the kitchen counter traditionally reserved for the toaster no longer has that reservation as it has been deservedly overtaken by more-productive toaster ovens. This is to be expected as heating up a slice of pizza in an upright toaster is clearly not a good idea. What is a good idea, though, is using the same area on the counter to cook rotisserie chicken.

Of course, trying to cook rotisserie chicken in a regular toaster oven isn't a very good idea either, but luckily there is a solution. The Wolfgang Puck Dual Convection Oven with Rotisserie & Baking Drawer is an all-in-one solution for cooking a variety of items. Featuring two different cooking compartments, the 1,500-watt appliance is able to handle most baking tasks--and then some.

The upper compartment has a 0.8-cubic-foot capacity and the lower drawer can accommodate a 12-inch pizza. A host of functions ensure the ability for users to take control over whatever they may be cooking. They include: defrost, keep-warm, standard-bake, convection-bake, slow cook, roast, broil and rotisserie. Accessories are provided to assist with the desired mode and these include two baking racks, two crumb trays, one drip/baking pan, one broil pan insert, and the rotisserie set, which consists of two forks, a spit, and a removal tool.

Complete with an updated design, which features a cool-blue display and intuitive controls, the countertop not only gets an upgrade in ability, but also appearance, too. And don't worry--it still makes toast.
