The Bella toaster oven is a great performer, albeit a lesser known brand than some of the other choices reviewed here.  It has 5 preset settings and simple dials which make it very easy to use.

Design and Features

The Bella toaster oven has a 12 liter capacity and measures 15.55 by 10.83 by 8.23 inches.

The simple dials and stylish brushed metal design make this an attractive toaster oven and one you would be happy to place on display in your kitchen.  It has five preset functions (bake, toast, broil, bagel and warm) which are very user-friendly as you simply select the appropriate setting for the type of cooking required.

In addition, it has a 30-minute timer, ready indicator light, cool touch handle (nice safety feature!) AND a toast shade selector to guarantee you perfectly cooked toast every time.

Bella Toaster Oven Performance

With a 1,200 watt power output, and quartz heating technology, the Bella toaster oven cooked evenly and quickly when we put it through a range of tests including chicken, toast, salmon, bagels and a 9 inch pizza.

There is also an external crumb tray which we really liked as it makes keeping the Bella toaster oven clean an absolute breeze.

As with most toaster ovens, the exterior does get pretty hot when cooking so you will need to ensure that there is sufficient space around the top and back of the toaster oven.

Verdict

Overall, we were impressed with the Bella toaster ovens because it’s easy to use, toasts well in all five of the preset settings and the removable crumb tray makes cleaning a breeze.
