What We Like the Most
First of all, the oven has a compact design and is ready to be placed in any limited space. Second, the way of working. It is super quiet and easy to use. Third, the thing that touches me is its size. It is small in size but is a jackpot. Apart from a toaster, it can be used for multiple cooking purposes.
The Comfee toaster oven is best suited for people having limited counter space. In contrast, COMFEE’s 4-slice small toaster oven CFO-BB101 was with some fan issues and temperature adjustments. Also, it was a bit expensive. Comparatively, in the new one, they have made enough temperature adjustments for cooking food evenly, and have upgraded the fan which now works smoothly and silently.
Moreover, the new version of Comfee has a short cord. There is a need for an extension to connect it to the power otherwise the cord touches the back of the oven. All in all, it is the best production of comfee’ and is fit to be carried anywhere because of its small size and requires low wattage of 1000 watts. It could be a smart addition to your camping luggage.

What We Like the Most
The Courant toaster oven is well manufactured having many features that I liked. Among them, the feature I liked the most is the new addition of its temperature control and heating process. Also, the improvement in the drip pan helps keep the oven clean.
If you are looking for a countertop oven for your small house, then the Courant toaster oven best suits your choice. It is small in size but is in a standing position that allows you to put 4 slices of bread in a single timer. Comparatively, the GE Mechanical toaster oven is also one that is beautifully engineered, and works perfectly but is expensive and not suitable for people who love camping. Because it is around 1800 watts which means it will need a lot of power. But in Courant Toaster Oven, they have made some changes like more temperature control and a modified drip tray.
The Courant toaster oven hots faster and can toast quickly. This is an awesome improvement. In addition, having a big glass window enables you to see through it while baking anything inside. One thing that I noticed in this version is its control knobs. They are cheaply manufactured as they dropped down in the second month after buying. So that needs improvement too. As a whole, it is one of the precisely manufactured toaster ovens that is inexpensive and is fit to be used anywhere.

Because it has low power requirement and works too fast. Its 400-degree of only temperature provides fast meals. Comparatively, the Instant Omni Plus has some problems with its legs and overheating. The handle got so much hot that needs to be wrapped before opening.
Furthermore, the problems that I found in Instant Omni Plus have been resolved in the new one. It now works fine without any of the major problems. One thing still needs to be fixed is its temperature. Having only a temperature of 400 degrees makes it difficult for people who need a lower temperature. This made it out of the reach of children.

The most important part is its 3-in-1 features. You can bake, toast, or can make coffee at the same time. In addition, the 500-wattage power marks it as the best camping toaster oven.
The Elite Gourmet Americana 3-in-1 is a great addition to my camping stuff. I was a bit confused between Elite Gourmet Americana and the Red Nostalgia BST3RR. I have bought both for having a closer look. After carefully studying different parts, I concluded that both are perfect for camping. The only difference that I noticed is the size. The former is almost 3X deeper than the latter.
Furthermore, Elite Gourmet Americana is multi-dimensional. You can use it as a toaster, baking oven, or coffee maker. Offers 3 different cooking methods. The only drip I found is that it is having no temperature control. With a little carelessness, you can burn your cookies.

5. Amazon Basics 2 Slice Toaster – Best for Toasting
|Dimensions||4″ D x 1″ W x 1″ H|
What We Like the Most
First of all, the Amazon basic 2-slice toaster oven is lightly weighted, which makes it handier. The second thing that I liked the most is that it’s cheaper and has low wattage. With the same power and features, you might not find any toaster oven for camping or kitchen.
With so many options for a toaster oven for a home in the market, it might confuse the person without hands-on experience. Amazon’s basic 2-slice toaster oven is one with a compact size and demanding features. It is different from other toaster ovens in that its only feature is toasting. Having a low wattage of 900 watts can be helpful at any place anywhere.
Besides, the only downside that I have noticed is the control dots. They are much smaller and might get difficult to read in a dark room. Overall, it is much cheaper than its counterpart having the same features. Can perfectly adjust on your counter and cooks food evenly all the time. Amazon basic is a 2-slice toaster oven that would be a perfect addition to your kitchen arena.

6. BLACK+DECKER 2-Slice Toaster – Best and Cheap Toaster
|Dimensions||5″ D x 6.1″ W x 9.5″ H|
What We Like the Most
The feature that I liked the most is first its bagel feature to cook the corner of the edges. Second, its temperature control. One is manual or the extent to which you need to brown, and the second is automatic. Leave everything to the toaster to calculate the thickness and adjust the temperature accordingly.
The more you come down the list the finer the product you will get. The Black and Decker 2-slice toaster oven is yet another great addition to your kitchen. It is portable and has much more easy controls than Amazon basic 2 slice. Comparatively, Black ad Decker is a few dollars more expensive than the former. Furthermore, having bright red color and easy operation makes it more demanding for the people.
Having low wattage power of 800 watts, comparatively to 900 watts of Amazon Basic, gives an edge for having the best low wattage toaster oven. It could be your best camping partner that will keep your belly full anywhere in the world. The toaster cooks food evenly at the cost of low wattage with a bagel function that will toast the edges of the bagels. Further, having two options for browning the bread; one is the shade option and another is automatic, depending upon the thickness of the bread.
- Can accommodate all sizes of toast.
- Removable crumb tray which makes it easy to clean.
- Bright red color having easy controls.
- Need an extension because of its short power cord.
7. Hamilton Beach Toaster Oven – Best for Family Gatherings
|Dimensions||15″ D x 18.5″ W x 9.5″ H|
|Capacity||12” Pizza or 6 Slices of Bread|
What We Like the Most
First of all, is the opening of the door. Second is its cheaper price with all those features that you might get in an expensive one. The third is the control knobs. They are professionally made and are much easy to understand.
Hamilton Beach Countertop Toaster Oven is the best microwave under $100. With a wide area, having a capacity of about 12” pizza is fit to deliver timely food to a whole family. Comparatively to others on the list, this microwave is not one from the low wattage microwave but I have added it to the list to give some twist to the topic. Having a mysterious opening of the door by sliding it to the top saves space as compared to contemporary microwaves.
In addition, the toaster oven has a convection, bake, toast, and broil setting. With all such features, Hamilton beach is cheaper than any other having the same features. This would be an interesting addition to your kitchen having lesser weight and being portable. One thing you need to be careful of is that when used for a longer duration, the exterior might get hotter and may cause damage. So, keep it away from the young ones, especially when used for a longer time.
- 1 x baking tray
- 1 x baking rack
- The upward opening of the door makes room in a limited space.
- Have a convection fan with top and bottom heating elements, which offers bake, broil, and toast.

- Comparatively, the convection fan is a little louder.

What We Like the Most
The best part that I liked the most is its temperature adjustment. Because many of us have problems with temperature adjustment and burn food. The second is its control knobs. They are easy to use and understand. Can be used by anyone at home.
Cooking had never been easy if you don’t have the right appliances. With the new Nostalgia RTOV2RR toaster oven you can add taste to your recipes and also deep cooking. The oven comes in dark red having a small window to see through while having a compact and portable design. Wide enough to hold a large 12” pizza easily. Comparatively, Nostalgia RTOV2RR is more advanced than its counterparts in terms of heating elements, compactness, and temperature control.
Apart from that, the control knobs work perfectly but have a bit issue when used at night because of the no backlight. A backlight would be a great addition if done in the new editions. Moreover, offers a variety of cooking methods; bake, broil, toast, and convection bake. You can adjust the temperature up to 450 degrees and a maximum time limit of 60 minutes. Wholly, this RTOV2RR is one of the best editions of Nostalgia microwaves and could be your next cooking partner.

9. Elite Gourmet ETO236 Toaster Oven – Best for Students
|Dimensions||7.5″ D x 13.25″ W x 6.5″ H|
What We Like the Most
The best part is it heat controlling. Broiling and baking features at such a cheaper price are worth it for people having tight budgets.
Elite Gourmet ETO236 is a nice 2-slice toaster oven. Larger than it is shown in the picture. The toaster could be used for baking and toasting purposes. Elite Gourmet is simple in outlook and easy to use than my previous Black and Decker. It has simple controls and easy cooking methods. With a wide internal area and non-stick material, it is easy to clean and doesn’t require much effort.
Furthermore, the only drawback is the gap between the shelves and the tray. The oil from the food drips when pulling out. Unlike other toaster ovens, here the temperature adjustment is manual up to 450 degrees. You need to adjust the temperature accordingly. Moreover, the toaster oven isn’t recommended for baking clay. All that aside, it is beautifully built and is worth well the price.
- 1 x non-stick bae pan
- 1 x wire rack
- Can be adjusted in a very limited space
- Have low power of 650 watts which consumes little but works perfectly

What We Liked the Most
The best part is its wonderful design and easy controls. Also, it is much quieter than other ovens which are something interesting. You can now have a chance to eat hot food silently in the mid of the night.
In the world of microwaves and toaster ovens, Black and Decker becomes my first priority. I am using toaster ovens quite for a long time. The last that I used was Black+Decker TO3290XSBD Toaster Oven. At first, it was working perfectly, but with each passing day, I was noticing a temperature issue and overheating. Then I decided to have an updated one and received my new BLACK+DECKER CTO6335S. They have made many improvements. It is wonderful, easy to use, maintains a constant temperature, and looks excellent on the counter.
Moreover, the alarm is considerably quieter than it was previously, as is the buttons’ sound. It can be used without disturbing anyone. The absence of a spring in the door is my lone complaint, which hasn’t changed. As a result, you must manually lower it or it will crash into the counter. With so many pros at such a cheap price is unable to beat it.
- 1 x removable crumb tray
- The alarm system is super quiet.
- Through convection heating technology, all of the food cooks uniformly.
- Having 5 cooking modes provides a variety of cooking procedures.

Best Low Wattage Toaster Oven – Buyer’s Guide
Capacity is the first thing to consider before buying a toaster oven. Having a 2-slice toaster oven will not help you when it’s time for guests. Also, if you are having a big family, it too will make a problem as it will take a bulk of time while preparing anything. So, to make things run smoothly without any extra wastage of time COMFEE’s toaster oven would be better to feed any number of family members or guests.
Next to capacity, there comes the size or overall dimensions. If you are tight on space and want to have a toaster oven that beautifully fits your limited kitchen arena, then you need to think smart. Smart enough to buy such type of oven that can attend the whole of your family and also holds a limited space. So, in such cases, go for an oven having a depth of at least 10” or Elite Gourmet Americana EBK8810BL if you are going with my recommendations.
Talking about the wattage, it depends upon your selection. You need to decide the purpose of buying a toaster oven. The greater the wattage, the speedy it will work. But one thing needs to be remembered, greater wattage power can also cause a major dent in your electricity bill. I would recommend Elite Gourmet ETO236 650 watts which work perfectly for small families. Also, you can go with your choice but make sure you are selecting the one with wattage power ranging from 800-1400 watts. Such power is enough for small to big families.
The oven comes with a variety of functions. Some have all of the functions like; bake, toast, broil, bagel, pizza, cookies, or warm. While others have very limited functions or can only toast. So, it depends upon your choice and selection that what type of oven you need. First of all, decide your purpose then make a list of the functions that are to be used in the processes. I would recommend Black and Decker CTO6335S which is a jackpot to have all the functions.
Non-Stick Ceramic and Zinc Coating
Talking about the exterior of the oven. My recommendation would be non-stick ceramic and zinc coating. Ceramic coating is considered non-toxic and much safer than PTFE and PFOA coatings. Second, they are easy to clean and safe. On the other side, zinc coating provides durability and helps in heat and energy distribution. They aren’t toxic too, except when heated up to their boiling point.
There are also some features that people miss the most while buying an oven. They are more concerned about the cooking process rather than the minor thing in the process. For example; toaster ovens with air fry, defrost cycle, automatic shut-off, reheat, toast shade, interior light, temperature setting, timer, display, and infrared heating features like the one in our list Hamilton Beach Toaster Oven. Also, make sure that you have all the trays that you need while using an oven for any purpose.
Here comes the conclusion about the low-watt toaster oven that I am recommending. These ovens will give your life a rebirth, a sigh of relief. Whether you are a traveler or buying one for your home or office, any of these can be your best partners. Now it depends upon your selection and the purpose of use to select the one that best suits you.
If you are going with my recommendations, I will prefer Elite Gourmet Americana EBK8810BL for home or office use and COMFEE’ Toaster Oven or BLACK+DECKER 2-Slice Toaster as your traveling companions. I use them and are working perfectly. Else, you can go with your choice. Stay blessed and happy shopping.
