Oster Convection Toaster Oven The Oster Toaster oven is available in a fire-engine red color and features a convection cooking system and uncomplicated controls meant to provide versatility and space-saving convenience on the kitchen counter.

This model has a decidedly retro appearance with rotary dials, and an industrial-style metal casing with venting slots on the sides. Looks are a bit deceiving in this case, as the oven features a convection fan for faster and more even cooking. This comes in very handy when baking or roasting larger items such as chicken. Be careful, though, as the convection feature can dry out more delicate items like breads when reheating. You can use this to your advantage when dehydrating foods or making croutons for instance. You can actually make your own beef jerky in a toaster oven -- Google some recipes for more info. It's fun to do, and a real money saver.

This model has two oven racks and unfortunately only two rack positions: low and high. Making those six slices of toast is a challenge as they tend to brown unevenly depending on which heating element is closest. A middle rack position would have been an improvement here. The lower rack opens a bit with the door for retrieval of cooked foods, advertised rather boastfully by Oster as an "auto-advance rack". Yes, and if you drop your toast, it will fall "automatically" to to floor. Butter side down of course.

A simple wind-up timer controls cooking and sounds off when finished with a loud bell. This toaster oven rates slightly above average with the online community, with the biggest complaint centering around that uneven toasting limitation. The convection cooking is the most enjoyed feature of this model.

It also comes in stainless steel.
