Recommended Posts

Sure, we've got some nice history with the CSO, and the Anova, and the Blumlein.

 

But - has anyone checked lately and seen how many different countertop steam ovens are now on the market?

 

Whynter makes one...

Whynter TSO-488GB Grande 40 Quart Capacity Counter-Top Multi-Function Convection Steam Oven, Black Stainless Steel (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)

 

Balmuda...https://us.balmuda.com/collections/toaster

 

Tovala Gen 2 Smart Steam Large Countertop WiFi Oven (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)

 

AUG Steam Oven with Convection and Grill, 8 Functions Combi, Black and Stainless Steel (eG-friendly Amazon.com link)

 

There must be others, but does anyone have any experience with these lesser-known brands?

the Whynter looks very interesting

 

its width is almost the length of one of my

 

1/2 sheet pans.   Im guessing the difference is about 0.2 "

 

if this oven works well , fine

 

but that 0.2 " won't change that

 

but it would make it more versatile 

 

re 1/2 sheet pan.

 

as far as I can tell , it has no WiFi and no App.

 

that's a good thing i think 

 

but some of the negative reviews 

 

( there are not many review )  said the door does not fully seal

 

and steam leaks out.

 

also the electronics for one person lasted 3 weeks

 

and there is little to no customer support

 

that person had to send it back to amazon

 

@ $ 27 shipping fee.

 

too bad.   this looked really good

Amazon Prime makes so much sense when it comes to dealing with Amazon - aside from free shipping there's music, video and ebook access included - am I the only one who noticed this???

I know what @rotuts is saying but I have drunk Jeff's Flavor Aid.  @rotuts's loss.  Without Prime I would have spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars in shipping charges per year.

 

Now where is my free spaceflight?

Since our Steam Girl #2 is on the way to the great oven graveyard in the sky (at some point), I've been checking some of the online reviews of various products.

 

Cuisinart and Breville show up quite frequently, though various models...

Breville Smart Oven

A more expensive, medium-size option

The Smart Oven maintains temperature remarkably well. But it’s slower at preheating, doesn’t toast as evenly, and costs more than our main picks.

Cuisinart Chef’s Convection Toaster Oven TOB-260N1

The best large toaster oven

This Cuisinart model provides impressively even cooking, a whopping nine-slice toast capacity, a three-year warranty, and some useful accessories.

 

 

This one shows up in a few...

Panasonic FlashXpress Toaster Oven

The best small toaster oven

This compact toaster oven was among the best at evenly toasting bread, baking cookies, and bringing frozen foods to life. It performed as well as or better than competitors that cost significantly more.

 

 

All the above from Wirecutter.
