6 Best Toaster Ovens of 2022

We updated this article in December 2022 to ensure the information reflected current prices, features and more. Our original top-rated picks selected by the Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances and Innovation Lab remain the same.

Toaster ovens take up minimal space, can replace several kitchen appliances like your toaster and air fryer (Check out these combo air fryer toaster ovens!) and shorten cooking times, especially when you use the convection setting. In addition to toasting bread and bagels, they can cook whole chickens and roast vegetables. Since most toaster ovens don’t require preheating, they’re great for the summer months when you don’t want to heat up your entire kitchen with your full-size oven. They're also energy efficient and use as little as half the energy of a conventional oven.

In the Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances and Innovation Lab, we've tested about 60 toaster ovens in the past 10 years. We test to see which ones can produce the most even, golden brown toast in the shortest amount of time. We also melt cheese on open-faced sandwiches, bake cakes and air fry chicken wings if there is an air fry setting. Here are our top picks for the best toaster ovens you can buy in 2022 based on testing.
