Roomy interior

If your toaster oven leaves you feeling cramped, then you'll love the size of the Pressure Oven. It'll fit six slices of toast, a 12-inch pizza, and even a 14-pound turkey.

Pressure seal

If you want to use the oven's pressure cooking capabilities, you'll need to close a gasket on the top of the unit to seal the heat in.

Seal the door, too

Once the vent on top is sealed, you'll close the door and pull a lever to seal it shut as well. When cooking is complete, you'll need to vent the heat from the top of the unit to avoid scalding yourself when unsealing the door.

Remember that 14-pound turkey I mentioned? In pressure cooking mode, the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven promises to cook it in less than an hour, with brown, crispy skin and perfectly juicy meat.
