Best bang-for-your buck countertop oven?
So, I've convinced my husband that we should swap our microwave for one of those new toaster ovens that acts like a mini oven, meaning it can broil, roast, etc. I like to roast and broil things and I bake but my oven is really old and takes forever to heat up (and heats up the whole apartment - not great in the summer).
There are so many options now -Cuisinart, Breville, KitchenAid, Oster, Black & Decker - ranging from $50 to $400. I'm overwhelmed.
I'd like to use this contraption as a mini oven - and I'd really like to broil stuff (fish, peppers). I don't want it to be enormous but it also doesn't have to be tiny (I'd really like to be able to cook dinner for four in it). I don't mind paying for something fancy that won't break and gives me lots of options (one of the Brevilles claims to be an air fryer) but I also don't want waste money.
Any advice for me?
