One thing that we’re absolutely convinced of here at Kitchen Authority is that you don’t need to spend a fortune on a great toaster oven. We’ve got a complete guide to toaster ovens if you are looking to compare toaster oven brands and models.
We do think, however, that you ought to buy a bigger model, if you have the room for it, that can better cater to a family.
Our favorite family toaster oven of 2019 is the Kenmore 4606 6-Slice Convection Toaster Oven.
Our Review Criteria
Size is important for ovens and this is a big toaster oven. 6 slices is considered to be a “big” toaster oven (though if you really want to spend a lot of money there are bigger models, still, but we are talking hundreds of more dollars).
You can comfortably roast a decent sized chicken or joint of beef in this model.
On the functionality front, this is a big step up from our other favorite toaster oven models. Not only do you get broiling, baking, and toasting but you get some really awesome digital rather than analog controls.
You’re in control and it’s really easy to get exactly what you want out of this Kenmore model.
Price is important and this is not the cheapest model that we’ve reviewed but it is without a doubt the best value model we’ve reviewed. The extra cash provides for much better functionality and a much larger oven.
Kenmore doesn’t make bad products and you won’t be surprised to learn that this is also a substantial piece of kit that isn’t going to let you down when you need it.
I would think it would last for a decade or more.
Something To Make In Your Toaster Oven
Who doesn’t love chocolate brownies? They’re nearly as American as apple pie, right?
My family absolutely loves them.
This Kenmore 4606 6-Slice Convection Toaster Oven is simply the best family toaster oven out there. It’s great value and has all the bells and whistles that you want without spending a fortune.
