My counter top oven ♥

Hi Everyone! I hope the new week is treating you well! It's still freezing here, but at least the sun is shining and the snow is melting so we are getting there.  Spring is slowly creeping up on us! 

So today I wanted to give you a closer look at my counter top oven.  After I showed a picture of it last week a few of you had questions on it.  

I decided she deserved her own post (yes, I love it that much! : ) 

When we moved I downsized my kitchen quite a bit. We have just about everything we once had except the space is a little bit smaller.  One thing  we decided to omit was an oven.  Of course we have full access to my parents kitchen downstairs, but I really missed having my own oven. (and my legs were feeling the burn running up and down the stairs every time I wanted to bake something - which is alot: ) 

For Christmas my parents got us this counter top one and I absolutely love it! ♥

I've cooked dinners, desserts, & snacks in it.  Don't  be fooled, this is not your regular toaster oven!  

The brand is Oster.  You can get it on Amazon for under $100. 

Here's a shot of the settings.  You can definitely use it as an everyday toaster. I don't do that because when I'm not using it I put it away.  If I had more counter space I would keep it out all the time but for me it's easier to just take it out when I need it.  

Oh - and it's pretty lightweight.  I can lug it around all by myself without any problems ♥ 

Yesterday I roasted sausages!  

I baked them at 350 degrees for one hour.  They came out delicious!  ♥

(sometimes I do baked potatoes too!)

I also made brownies.  You can easily fit a 9x13 baking dish without any issues. 


Pizza is a snap! There is a pizza setting on it but honestly I haven't used it.  I just cook it at 450 degrees for 15 minutes just like it used to in my full size oven ♥ 

The one thing I will say is you should keep an eye on certain things, that they don't brown too much.  I think because the space is smaller the heat is more intense.  This took me a few tries to get the hang of it, but once I learned what to be careful of I've had no problems.  

 I highly recommend this oven if you have a small kitchen or if you just want an extra oven in the house! I can totally roast a chicken in here, which I will be doing soon!  ♥

I love anything that makes my life easier! Xx
