A useful addition to any busy kitchen, Oster's TSSTTVXLDG extra-large digital toaster oven--beautifully housed in brushed stainless steel--takes countertop cooking to a whole new level. Whether it's the holidays and relatives are gathering for a celebratory feast, or it's simply a Tuesday night and a quick healthy meal is on the menu, the countertop oven offers a roomy interior and exceptional versatility that not only accommodates, but inspires.
The toaster oven works well as a second oven or as an energy-efficient alternative to turning on the full-size oven, though no need to think small thanks to its extra-large interior. Bake anything from a family-size 16-inch frozen or take-and-bake pizza to a whole chicken, a 13-by-9-inch casserole, or a pan of bread sticks or cinnamon rolls. It can even toast up to 14 slices of bread at a time.
The oven provides a removable baking pan and broil rack for baking, broiling and grilling, as well as two removable wire racks that slide neatly into place. Two oven-rack positions allow for multi-level cooking options--use just one rack in the lower position (great for cooking a tall roast) or both racks simultaneously (better for busting out batches of oatmeal chocolate-chip cookies).
Digital controls keep things simple for both the novice and experienced home chef alike. Simply press the easy-clean touch-pad to make the desired selection. Functions include Toast, Bake, Broil, Warm, Defrost, and Pizza.
There's also a Convection Bake setting that uses turbo convection-heat technology, which means more even browning and faster results--without compromising on quality. With Convection Bake, hot air circulates throughout the oven's interior, just like with a high-end full-size oven, which means it's possible to effortlessly achieve juicy meat and flavorful, gently cooked vegetables, as well as crispy edges and flakey crusts.
Even more, the user-friendly control panel provides a Temp button with up and down arrows for increasing or decreasing the cooking temperature (from 150 to 450 degrees F) and a Timer button with up and down arrows for setting the 90-minute timer, which shuts off automatically once the desired time has ended. The control panel also includes a clock digitally displaying the time of day.
Thoughtfully constructed, the extra-large digital toaster oven sports a large, fully transparent, glass door that makes it possible to keep an eye on cooking food without letting heat escape by having to open the door. It also comes with a full-length cool-touch door handle, a smooth interior that cleans up in a snap, and an external removable crumb tray.
Where to begin? The toaster oven provides a variety of mouthwatering recipes like brie and artichoke bruschetta, cinnamon toast, and honey mustard chicken with spicy pecan cornflake crust, as well as mustard and herb pork tenderloin with roasted potatoes and roasted turkey breast with aromatic vegetables. Attractively housed in brushed stainless steel, the extra-large toaster oven measures 20 inches long by 24 inches wide by 13 inches high.
