Factors To Consider
- Retro Look
- Toast Slices
- Internal Capacity
- Temperature Range
- Hot-To-The-Touch Degree
Every good retro toaster oven should ooze nostalgic appeal but not in such a way that it looks tacky or kitsch. Weigh up the aesthetics of any prospective purchase to find the perfect fit for your existing style but don’t forsake the technical capabilities, capacity, and general performance for looks alone.
At the very least, a toaster oven should toast, bake, broil, and reheat food. Roasting, convection baking, air frying, and other convenient smart modes such as pre-programmed settings for pizza, bagels, or the like are all extras and not essential to all shoppers.
The number of slices of bread that can be toasted will be a prime consideration for most households. Always consider the bread slice capacity alongside the internal capacity and general toasting performance to pick out a toaster oven that delivers a good balance of practical functionality.
Very few compact toaster ovens will accommodate a standard 9 x 13-inch baking pan. If you see yourself toasting, baking, broiling, air frying, or roasting in anything other than the cookware provided with the retro toaster oven in question, ensure that it’ll fit in the unit you’re planning to buy. Handles are all too often overlooked when assessing size. We have specified the internal capacity as ‘Width x Height x Depth’ across all retro toaster overviews.
All of the retro toaster ovens reviewed reach a maximum temperature of 450°F, but there’s a variable fluctuation depending on the brand. More important to consider than the top end is the lowest temperature because this determines how well your oven will be able to keep food warm and reheat food. Too high of a low-end setting means that certain food will crisp up too quickly to reheat all the way throughout without frequent turning.
While not entirely true for all toaster ovens, the higher the wattage, the better the baking, convection baking, air frying, broiling and roasting performance and efficiency, which means less cooking time in most cases. There are certain energy-efficient models that offer astounding performance with a low power draw, but this is rare. Most retro toaster ovens are powered by between 1200 and 1800 watts.
We have sorted each retro toaster oven according to ‘Ultra Hot,’ ‘Very Hot,’ ‘Hot,’ and ‘Somewhat Hot.’ The degree of heat radiated by each unit will determine its placement and suitability for use in households where children are present. A little heat is to be expected, but some toaster ovens get so hot that they’ll instantly scorch the skin.
We’ve rated performance according to toasting, baking, broiling, roasting, air frying, and reheating on a scale of ‘Excellent,’ ‘Very Good,’ ‘Good,’ ‘Reasonable,’ and ‘Poor’ as applicable to each retro toaster oven.
Efficiency is an indication of how fast each toaster oven reaches any given temperature setting. Efficiency has been ranked according to ‘High,’ ‘Moderate,’ ‘Fair,’ and ‘Poor.’
The ten best retro toaster ovens available range in price between about $73 and $160, with the average large capacity retro toaster going for around $100 to $140.
Shoppers should expect to find a one-year warranty from almost all retro toaster ovens save for one or two scattered brands like Cuisinart and Feekaa.
Top Best Retro Toaster Ovens Reviewed
Style-conscious cooks outfitting their quintessential retro kitchen will find the best options out there on this list of the ten best retro toaster ovens. Whether you’re buying for looks alone, quick and easy crunchy toast, or reheating or cooking frozen pizza, we’ve got everything you need to know to make the ideal pick coming up.
Nostalgia RTOV2RR Retro Convection Toaster Oven
|Retro Look||Diner Red Or Aqua With Bold Black Handle With Retro Text & Styling||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Very Hot|
|Settings||Bake, Toast, Convection Bake, Broil||Performance||Reasonable Toasting, Very Good Baking, Very Good Convection Baking, Excellent Broiling|
|Internal Capacity||12 x 8 x10 Inches||Affordability||Affordable|
|Temperature Range||200-450°F||Warranty||1 Year|
With a mammoth capacity and classic striking style offered across two different color schemes, the Nostalgia RTOV2RR Retro Convection Toaster Oven is easily one of the best available. Unfortunately, standard 9 x 13-inch and 9 x 12-inch pans do not fit. The largest is 8 x 8 inch. That said, there’s enough room to for two large pizzas or toast twelve slices of bread between the two racks. The front of the unit remains cool to the touch, and the window is heat resistant, ensuring food is always visible. There is, however, slight heat loss which can be felt toward the top, which gets hot enough to scorch the skin.
From a built-in 60-minute timer and easy cleaning to a total retro aesthetic with dials, vintage logo, and trim that’s among the most visually striking seen, the Nostalgia RTOV2RR Retro Convection Toaster Oven is an impressive, affordable buy that has it all. There are only two minor nuances. Toast comes out very brown, even on a low setting. Take care to only turn the dial a fraction of a notch if you want yours lightly toasted. Lastly, setting midway temperatures like 325°F or 375°F can be tricky using the dial but can be accomplished nonetheless. Nostalgia has a matching drip coffee maker and toaster available for keen shoppers, although most will find that both the aqua and red design suit a wide variety of retro-styled items.
Deco Chef 24 Quart Stainless Steel Toaster Oven
|Retro Look||Black, Red Or Stainless Steel With Bold Handles, Digital Display & Dials||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Very Hot|
|Settings||Fries, Pizza, Bread, Cake, Chicken, Steak, Rotisserie, Fish, Dehydration, Keep Warm||Performance||Very Good Air Frying, Excellent Toasting, Excellent Baking, Good Broiling, Very Good Roasting, Good Reheating|
|Internal Capacity||13 x 12.36 x 8.75 Inches||Affordability||Affordable|
|Temperature Range||170-450°F||Warranty||1 Year|
The Deco Chef Red 24 Quart Stainless Steel Toaster Oven is an impressive machine at a great price. Fortunately, very few compromises are made in terms of performance, and the build quality is also solid. Deco Chef appliances are made in China but exhibit surprisingly high durability. The temperatures reported are spot on despite the considerable heat that the toaster oven radiates. Only the limited interior size that restricts regular-sized baking pans limits this excellent toaster oven’s place in this review. Also, it takes longer than one would hope to heat up.
While initially confusing to some, the controls are simple and straightforward thanks to the aid of the large, easy-to-read display. Air frying/convection performance is outstanding. Unlike most competing retro toaster ovens, this outstanding appliance from Deco Chef even offers a rotisserie that can handle up to a 5-pound chicken. It’s not the most attention-grabbing 50s, 60s, or 70s chic some may be hunting for, but the black and red designs are more than retro enough for most kitchens.
Galanz Large 6-Slice True Convection Toaster Oven
|Retro Look||Bebop Blue Or Red||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Hot|
|Settings||Bake, Toast, Roast, Broil, Pizza, Dehydrate, Keep Warm, Convection||Performance||Reasonable Toasting, Good Baking, Very Good Broiling, Very Good Convection Baking, Very Good Roasting, Reasonable Dehydration, Reasonable Reheating|
|Internal Capacity||12 x 8 x 10 Inches||Affordability||Affordable|
|Temperature Range||200-450°F||Warranty||1 Year|
Both the blue and red Galanz Large 6-Slice True Convection Toaster oven designs are excellent matches for any retro kitchen. At first, the compact unit appears to offer less capacity than its roomy interior actually has. A standard 9 x 13-inch baking pan fits perfectly as long as it doesn’t have any handles and there are two rack positions. The minimum temperature setting is a little higher than most competing models, but the reheating performance when using the built-in preset is consequently fantastic. An indicator light combined with heat-resistant glass ensures your food is in clear view while cooking.
Unfortunately, the retro-styled six-slice toaster ovens from Galanz do not offer an air fry mode specifically. It’s only the higher-end 1800-watt models from Galanz that air fry but none have vintage aesthetics. Excellent convection performance and lightning-quick heating times can, however, be expected. Toasting performance is good, but the upper element does appear to be slightly hotter than the bottom, and while it reaches a high heat atop the unit externally, the radiant heat elsewhere is low. There are bigger, better options out there, but at this price range, you’ll struggle to find a better-priced retro toaster oven that compares to the overall quality of this design.
Hauswirt Countertop Convection Oven
|Retro Look||Enameled White Exterior With Vintage-Esque Top Rounded Corners, Large Window, White Dials With Red Trim (No Digital Display) , Large Broad Silver Handle||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Somewhat Hot|
|Settings||Warm, Broil, Bake, Convection Bake, Air Fry, Rotate||Performance||Good Air Frying, Good Toasting, Good Baking, Good Broiling, Good Reheating|
|Internal Capacity||12 x 8 x 14||Affordability||Mid-Range|
|Temperature Range||200-450°F||Warranty||1 Year|
As another toaster oven that wasn’t specifically designed for a retro kitchen, the Hauswirt XL Countertop Convection Oven in ivory sure suits a vintage aesthetic well. The entire unit is built from food-grade stainless steel coated in a gorgeous ivory-colored enamel. Every last aspect of the basic exterior and interior build screams quality. Even the glass is both thickened and heat resistant. Toasting, air frying dehydrating, and reheating performance are all above average, but baking, convection baking, and broiling are significantly underpowered and typically take several minutes longer than recipes specify. The only other frequent complaint is that the Hauswirt oven is very loud.
One should keep in mind that Hauswirk has designed this unit to leverage the power of multiple heating elements instead of sheer wattage. The massive capacity toaster oven capable of handling a 5-pound chicken, two 12-inch pizzas, or twelve slices of bread simultaneously is powered by 1200 watts spread across four upper and two lower PID heating tubes. A fitted NTC sensor ensures precise air circulation, thus lifting efficiency above almost any other unit tested. This is a toaster oven that heats up in record time while delivering superb rear retention. Those who don’t mind a slight wait while roasting or baking may find the Hauwirk XL Countertop to be one of the best options out there, especially for those who value efficiency.
Elite Gourmet ETO1200BL Americana Retro Countertop Toaster Oven
|Retro Look||Rounded Cornered Polished Americana Mint Blue Or Black Enameled Design||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Somewhat Hot|
|Settings||Keep Warm, Bake, Broil, Toast||Performance||Excellent Toasting, Good Baking, Good Broiling, Reasonable Reheating|
|Internal Capacity||9.75 x 9.5 x 7.75 Inches||Affordability||Affordable|
|Temperature Range||200-480°F||Warranty||1 Year|
Although also available in black, the mint blue Elite Gourmet Americana Retro Toaster oven in either four or six-slice capacity instantly conveys a 50s diner feel. This well-designed unit should be a top consideration if you can survive with a four-slice toaster oven. There’s enough space to handle a 9-inch personal pizza, an 8 x 9-inch baking tray, or a similarly sized casserole dish. A built-in timer with automatic shutoff ticks away audibly, and the end-of-cycle buzzer lets you know your food is done without being unnecessarily noisy. Overall, the Elite Americana Retro Toaster oven is a competitively priced, well-manufactured unit.
The build quality is impressive when considering the affordability. For example, the cooking tray is enamel coated instead of featuring Teflon. Toasting is noticeably quicker than a toaster, and despite the slight radiant heat, baking, broiling, and roasting only require a few minutes longer than most recipes specify. Still, the exterior never reaches scorching hot as some ovens do. Remember, there’s no convection, just a top, and bottom element. This being said, shoppers on the lookout for a toaster oven alone should definitely give this one a look. As far as straight toaster ovens go, the performance is really good.
Luby Convection Toaster Oven
|Retro Look||Enameled Red And Black With Curved Reflective Handle Dial-Based Controls||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Ultra-Hot|
|Settings||Toast, Bake, Broil||Performance||Excellent Toasting, Very Good Baking, Excellent Reheating|
|Internal Capacity||16.375 x 15.875 x 8.5 Inches||Affordability||Affordable|
|Temperature Range||150-450°F||Warranty||1 Year|
The Luby Convection Toaster Oven offers simple controls and reliable operation while carrying a rich red enameled exterior that’s likely to last many years without rusting or showing any sign of wear and tear. It’s also a far heavier toaster oven than most of the other units reviewed despite having a rather small interior. Still, a 3-pound chicken fits comfortably, which equates to enough room for a 10-inch pizza. Reheating and/or keeping food warm is a breeze thanks to the low minimum temperature that can be selected.
Despite the exterior getting so hot that it can easily melt plasticware standing too close, toast comes out evenly browned on both sides regardless of whether a single slice or full batch is made. Broiling is also outstanding, while baking is surprisingly good if running a little hot. The majority of users report having to shorten the duration of their baking times. Pick the Luby Convection Toaster Oven if you’re looking for a simple, easy-to-use unit with flawless toasting and great all-around capabilities.
Costway Toaster Oven
|Retro Look||Green Or Silver Compact Oven With Large Window, Rounded Corners And Dial-Based Controls||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Ultra-Hot|
|Settings||Air Fry, Wings, Toast, Bake, Pizza, Dehydrate, Warm||Performance||Reasonable Air Frying, Excellent Toasting, Very Good Baking, Good Reheating|
|Internal Capacity||12 x 11.5 x 7.5 Inches||Affordability||Mid-Range|
|Temperature Range||250-450°F||Warranty||1 Year|
The Costway Toaster Oven is a compact appliance that packs a surprising amount of space. Standard-sized bakeware doesn’t fit, but you do, of course, get a dishwasher-safe fry basket, oven rack, and baking pan with the unit. Cute best describes this functional toaster oven’s retro look, and it is also packed with functional features. There’s an eight-minute toast timer and a regular sixty-minute timer with audible notification. An interior light ensures everything is illuminated at all times. A heat-insulating handle almost makes up for the ultra-hot temperature that the exterior reaches. It’s not the best air fryer around, but not due to the results, which are pretty good, actually.
Although advertised as a dehydrator, the high minimum temperature vastly limits its capabilities, and proofing dough is out of the question. Still, at 250°F, you’ll be able to dehydrate tomatoes, bananas, and most other fruits but not quite perfectly. Also, food warms up fast but often too fast, resulting in a crispy exterior. It’s a little higher priced than competing ovens with its specifications, but we’d expect this is mainly due to the tiny footprint in combination with reliable heating. If the look grabs you and you need the space, shop Costway but don’t place it near any other appliances.
DAWAD Air Fryer Toaster Oven
|Retro Look||Stainless Steel With Clean White Exterior Finish, Vintage-Esque Top Rounded Corners, Large Window, Brushed Silver Dials & Handle (No Digital Display)||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Very Hot|
|Settings||Air Fry, Broil, Air Broil, Bake, Air Bake, Toast, Warm||Performance||Excellent Air Frying, Reasonable Toasting, Good Baking, Very Good Broiling, Very Good Reheating|
|Internal Capacity||12.6 x 11.81 x 7.48 Inches||Affordability||Expensive|
|Temperature Range||Keep Warm – 450°F||Warranty||1 Year|
While the Dawad Convection Toaster Oven wasn’t specifically designed to deliver a retro look, it does fulfill the criteria wonderfully. A basic but impactful design style featuring supremely easy-to-use dials and a large clear glass window that leaves food in clear view while cooking makes for a gorgeous unit. The efficiency of Dawad’s toaster oven is exceptional. It heats up far faster than the vast majority of the competition. Its air frying will also wow you. Fries come out crispy, air frying as if cooked in a high-end dedicated appliance in fifteen minutes flat. Dual heating tubes and two fans grant amazing convection and air fryer performance.
Like most of the compact units reviewed, a standard baking tray doesn’t fit, but an 8 x 8-inch fills the entire interior comfortably. Stainless steel construction throughout the entire unit and provided accessories make cleanup a breeze even though there’s no non-stick coating to be found. About the only issue we have with the otherwise impressive Dawad Convection Toaster Oven is that when it one-day packs in, it’s unlikely you’re going to be able to get it repaired by an authorized repair agent. There’s simply no presence for the company online. Shoppers are, however, awarded one of the easiest to use great-looking ovens at a reasonable price. It even comes with its own thirty-three-recipe recipe book.
Feekaa Air Fryer Toaster Oven XL
|Retro Look||Black With Vintage-Esque Top Rounded Corners, Large Window, Gold Dials Only (No Digital Display) & Large Broad Gold Handle||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Very Hot|
|Settings||Toast, Air Fry, Broil, Warm, Bake, Rotisserie and Convection Bake||Performance||Excellent Air Frying, Excellent Toasting, Reasonable Baking, Reasonable Broiling, Good Reheating|
|Internal Capacity||12.5 x 11.75 x 7.25 Inches||Affordability||Mid-Range|
|Temperature Range||0-450°F||Warranty||30 Day Free Replacement + 1 Year Warranty|
The Feekaa Air Fryer Toaster Oven with a built-in rotisserie offers powerful convection performance and an extra roomy interior. The oven looks bigger than it is but still isn’t too bad, seeing that it holds a 12-inch pizza with a little room leftover. Gold knobs upon a black exterior create a striking appearance that’ll suit any retro kitchen well. There’s no digital display in sight which will be a big drawcard for retro fans. New owners will be won over by the excellent air frying, baking, and broiling performance, but the oven isn’t without its own set of problems as it’s not the most efficient around.
The only prevailing issue that prospective shoppers should consider is that Feekaa temperatures aren’t very accurate. Whilst baking, the oven doesn’t ever reach the full 450°F. Instead, it runs roughly 40°F colder than reported. In air fryer mode and convection bake mode, the temperature gets hotter, reaching around 430°F. Also, power consumption is pretty high when considering that it doesn’t hit the maximum temperature reported. With this in mind, there are no serious performance flaws to note. Food comes out great no matter which setting you’re using, but, as noted, meals will take a few minutes longer than the recipe asks for.
Cuisinart Compact Airfry Toaster Oven
|Retro Look||Stainless Steel With Vintage-Esque Rounded Top Corners, Large Window & Dials Only, No Digital Display||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Somewhat Hot|
|Settings||Toast, Air Fry, Broil, Warm, Bake, Rotisserie and Convection Bake||Performance||Good Air Frying, Very Good Toasting, Fair Baking, Fair Broiling, Poor Reheating|
|Internal Capacity||3 x 9 x 11||Affordability||Mid-Range|
|Temperature Range||Warm-450°F||Warranty||3 Year|
Cuisinart is renowned for creating some of the best quality kitchen appliances available. The Cuisinart Compact Airfry Toaster Oven is no exception if arriving a little bit small compared to competitors. It certainly isn’t the biggest at just four slice capacity or roughly 2.5 pounds of food. Toasting performance is, however, pretty fantastic while toasting a full batch. There’s even a toast shade selector timer built-in. The rest of the functions are all reasonable, but a prevailing problem is the efficiency. It takes far longer for this toaster oven to heat up than similar-sized units. Also, reheating takes far longer than one would hope for.
Patient users are fortunately rewarded with a three-year warranty, and, as mentioned, Cuisinart products are known to last. Complete control over the heat is offered through the dial-based controls, but this unfortunately also means that setting repeat temperatures is tricky due to a lack of notch markers being provided. For fans of the brand who only need a toaster oven for one or two people, the Cuisinart Compact Airfry Toaster Oven is a reliable choice that wasn’t specifically designed to be retro but sure will match the modern vintage kitchen to a tee.
Aside from the top ten retro toaster ovens reviewed above, here is a look at the best retro toaster oven and a selection of breakfast stations that may be of interest to vintage fans.
Best Affordable Retro Toaster Oven
Those shopping for the cheapest toaster oven possible will find outstanding value and performance from Hamilton Beach’s 4-Slice Toaster Oven. In its price range, no other retro-styled countertop toaster oven can compare. Hamilton Beach also has a six-slice model with an alternate design that’s just as classic for just a few dollars more. Here’s the breakdown, but we urge you to check out our wrap-up of the best toasters if you’re also on the hunt for a matching, low-cost accompaniment to this remarkably cheap lasting buy.
Hamilton Beach 4 Slice Toaster Oven
|Retro Look||Rich Deep Red With Large Dials Only, No Digital Display||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Somewhat Hot|
|Settings||Broil, Keep Warm, Bake, Bagel, Toast||Performance||Excellent Toasting, Good Broiling, Reasonable Baking, Reasonable Reheating|
|Internal Capacity||4 x 11 x 9||Affordability||Very Affordable|
|Temperature Range||150-450°F||Warranty||1 Year|
Most shoppers who are strolling the isles on the lookout for the perfect retro toaster oven to conjure up the ideal essence of nostalgia that their kitchen needs normally don’t have to have the biggest ovens out there. Those who value safe-saving modern design with unmistakable stylings from yesteryear may find exactly what they need in breakfast stations. Breakfast stations combine a toaster oven, drip coffee maker, and griddle into a single unit for the ultimate combination of compact design and chic appeal. Here’s a brief look at the best breakfast station available.
Nostalgia BST3AQ Breakfast Station
|Retro Look||Compact Aqua Counterop All-In-One Station With Bold Trim & Rounded Corners||Hot-To-The-Touch Degree||Very Hot|
|Settings||Grill, Toast/Bake, Warm/Heat||Performance||Excellent Grilling, Reasonable Toasting, Reasonable Baking, Reasonable Reheating, Good Coffee Making|
|Internal Capacity||Exact Dimensions Unknown||Affordability||Mid-Range|
|Temperature Range||Fixed Temperature – Cannot Change Heat Level (Unspecified Temperature, Invariable)||Warranty||1 Year|
The Nostalgia Breakfast Station in aqua, pink or red, is both functional and gorgeous despite not being made from premier-class materials. From the dial-based controls to overall polish, the entire look screams 50s diner. It has an oven that accommodates four slices of toast or a 7-inch pizza, and a half-hour timer is built-in. Grilling, toasting, baking, warming, and reheating performance are all good enough to surprise the most discerning critics. The griddle comes with a tempered glass lid and is supremely non-stick, and the four-cup coffee carafe is also high quality. At under the price, there’s every reason to want to cook your breakfast and brew coffee simultaneously. Even clean-up is easy.
Frequently Asked Questions
The best retro toaster oven with air fryer capabilities comes down to a tie between the Deco Chef 24 Quart Stainless Steel Toaster Oven and the Galanz Large 6-Slice True Convection Toaster Oven. The Hauswirt Countertop Convection Oven, COMFEE Retro Air Fryer Toaster Oven, Costway Toaster Oven, DAWAD Air Fryer Toaster Oven, Feekaa Air Fryer Toaster Oven XL, and the Cuisinart Compact Airfry Toaster Oven all feature air frying but the results aren’t quite as good as the top two contenders. Only the DAWAD & Feekaa units come close but still don’t quite reach the level of excellence exhibited by Galanz and Deco Chef.
Breville is largely accepted and the overwhelming best manufacturer of high-quality toaster ovens. Unfortunately, no Breville models are designed with a retro look. Ninja Foodi and Oster are just as highly regarded but also do not sell any vintage-themed appliances. Out of the top ten retro toaster ovens reviewed, the best build quality and general manufacturing can be expected from Nostalgia, Cuisinart, and Galanz.
