Microwave Toaster Oven Combo Reviews
After over 200 hours of research and testing, we think the Samsung MG14H3020CM is the best microwave toaster oven combo for most folks, combining the speed and convenience of a microwave oven with the toasting capabilities of a regular toaster oven, and all at a reasonable price.
The Samsung MG14H3020CM is a stylish microwave toaster oven combo that performed brilliantly when cooking everything from popcorn to pizza. The inclusion of a grilling element makes it a real stand-out because it allows you to crisp and brown food such as bagels and pizzas, which is not possible in a conventional microwave.
The digital control panel with LED display and presets make cooking so simple, and once you are done the ceramic enamel interior can be quickly and easily cleaned.
If all you need in a microwave toaster oven combo is a smallish sized unit that can cook a maximum of one or two servings, the Panasonic NB-G110P Flash Xpress Toaster Oven is cheaper than our top pick and can cook food almost as well.
Its quirky design is not to everyone’s taste and it lacks the capacity of the Samsung, but the Panasonic outperforms many of its more expensive competitors and takes up less countertop space.
If you would like a microwave toaster oven combo which allows you to defrost a casserole, bake it and then grill to melt the cheese on top, then the Cuisinart CMW 200 is definitely worth a look: It has a unique “multi-stage” cooking option which automatically switches from one function to another.
It also includes some of the features of the Samsung that we really liked, such as an LCD display with touchpad controls and preset cooking options.
