Apart of the obvious ones like being cheaper and smaller than a conventional one, there are also a few other reasons around for buying a smaller table top oven, commonly called a mini oven. The first is:
Mini Ovens are green
No, I don’t mean in color and design, you will be hard pressed to find one in this color! They are more likely available in white or metal. I mean in the use of energy and other resources. No matter if you believe in global warming or if you believe that global warming was invented by a guy with the initials A.G., saving money on electricity bills should be always a strong argument for everybody. In the end, and in the current economical situation especially, saving money is decisively a good thing to strive for! So, when firing on a small oven for small task instead of using a conventional one for the same, you will save money on your electricity and energy bill plus recuperating the initial investment in them in a short time.
Mini Ovens are cool
No, again, I don’t mean their looks, I mean that they emit considerably less heat as a conventional and normal sized oven. Just think about this: You have a slice of pizza leftover from yesterdays dinner. What do you prefer? To quickly (hey, that is actually point 3!) reheat it in a small oven that doesn’t heat up your kitchen much and operates with the optimal amount of energy for the task, or to heat up an oven that is several times larger than needed for the task and heats up your kitchen (think summer!) unbearable? How to you prefer to cook, in sweating heat or in a, relatively cool, environment?
Mini Ovens are fast
Fast and quick to heat up, fast and quick to cool down, ready to be cleaned rather sooner then later. In short, these smallish ovens are great time savers! So, no matter what type of mini oven you buy, the reasons are the same for every one.
