Retro toaster oven overview

retro toaster oven

Toaster is one of the most practical and often used appliance in my home. In a moment you can have great warm breakfast or a snack, what else do you need in your kitchen at the moment except for a coffee machine? Couple month ago I visited my friend and noticed that she had toaster oven, instead of usual toasted as I did. I wouldn’t be me if I did not try myself this small oven immediately. Main difference is that it takes double the place of usual toaster, but it is as well has twice much functionality. First of all it is an oven. With a capacity of 22 liters it will do not only toasts, but as well cakes, pizzas and whatever you wish to do. As I am fan of retro design I decided to review retro toaster oven.

Retro Toaster Ovens

Classical toaster oven, with a capacity of 18 – 22 liters. It is rather a small thing, with weight of around 15 lbs, and dimensions: L 19 x W 15 x H 11. Usually they go with four stage heating selectors: Upper Heating / Lower Heating / Upper & Lower Heating / OFF. Adjustable temperature between 200°F – 450°F.


  • heats extremely fast, compare to a big oven.
  • size

  • temperature sensibility. I would not recommend baking some temperature sensitive dishes.

Functionality: you can make two 12″ pizzas or 6 slides of toast, bake a cake or some dinner.

2 in 1 Toasters

Here is what you get in 2 in 1 toaster aka oven. Compact 2-in-1 appliance, in which top slot works like traditional 2-slice toaster and below is an oven that fits 2 16 pizza slices or 2 personal pizzas.

Due to the toaster capacity of the oven is smaller and will probably not work for a cake. But who need a cake when you can grill cheese or make a pizza? :)

Another option of 2in1 toaster is Dual Function Breakfast Station Toaster and Coffee. Toaster features 2 extra-wide slots for toasts, bagels, waffles, and more. And additionally you have a single-serve coffee maker that brews up to 8 oz. of your favorite brew and includes removable, reusable filter basket. Great isn’t it? :)

One more options is Hot Dog Roller and Toaster Oven.

Multifunctional 3 in 1 Toaster Ovens

Multifunctional retro toaster oven is a truly striking thing. I would recommend it for students and for a small apartment kitchen. Its functionality is really something. So Let’s have a closer look at 3-in-1 Family Size Breakfast Station. What do you have for a size of 19.8 x 12.5 x 11.5 inches and weight of ~ 15 lbs.

4-Cup Coffee Maker

Brew 4-cups of coffee quickly and easily while you prepare the perfect breakfast.

Nonstick Griddle

Cook eggs and your favorite breakfast meats on the large nonstick griddle. Plus, some models have the non-stick coating which makes clean up a breeze.

4-Slice Toaster Oven

Make 4-slices of toast at once to complete your perfect family-sized breakfast.

In this multi-function oven you can prepare all your favorite foods. Can you imagine cooking burgers on the griddle while simultaneously toasting buns in the oven, or bake 7-inch pizzas, and even reheat leftovers!  And all these on 30 sq. cm?

As you can see those retro toaster ovens are indeed very functional and might add a touch of old-fashioned flare to your kitchen.
