Best Buy

"Small but powerful," "the Swiss Amy knife of small ovens" and "this thing is huge" are just a few of the things people are saying about the Calphalon Quartz Heat Countertop Oven in verified purchase reviews. And the highly-rated model is currently half off at Best Buy for today only as its Deal of the Day. 

This sleek-looking oven sports more heat and cook space than your average countertop oven. A faster preheat will give your range oven a much-needed break -- saving on energy costs (not to mention time and hassle). This Calphalon unit comes with a handy dehydration rack for making jerky and other healthy snacks, along with a pizza pan large enough to make a 12-inch pie.
