Toaster Oven With Toaster On Top

A toaster oven can toast and bake. But some people still prefer a toaster to toast their bread because it is easy to use and fast. They will leave the oven for pizzas and other snacks. So if you have an appliance that combines the 2, it should be a bestseller. The Hamilton Beach Toastation is one such wining formula. It is a toaster oven with toaster on top.

Hamilton Beach 22708 Toastation Review

Hamilton Beach 22708 Toastation

The Hamilton Beach 22708 Toastation is a 2 slice toaster and mini oven. It is the older version of the model 22720 but it used to sell for a higher price than the newer design. But since then, the price has dropped and at the time of this review, it is cheaper and seems to be a better value buy. After all, the features are more or less the same. Only the appearance looks a bit different and the height of the newer model is just a tad taller.

This is a 1300-watt toaster oven with 6 toast shade options and temperature settings that go up to 450°F. It is simple to use with a selector lever to switch between Toast and Oven. When you slide the switch to Oven, the 1.5″ toasting slot will close off to prevent heat from escaping through the top. Then, you can select your temperature dial and begin baking.

The good thing about the Hamilton Beach 22708 Toastation is that:

  • This toaster oven with toaster combo is compact. It is a space-saving appliance as the width is only about 16″ wide. On top that, you don’t have to give up space for a separate toaster and a countertop oven. You only need a small space for a single appliance that serves 2 functions.
  • This model is cheap. You don’t have spend over $100 for it unlike buying a Breville. At the time of writing, you can get this for less than $30 (price subject to change) which makes it one of the cheapest toaster ovens in the market. It is in the same price range of the 4-slice Black & Decker TO1303SB.
  • The rack will get pulled out as the door is opened. In fact, many larger toaster ovens do not have an auto-eject rack. Those that have are generally more expensive than the Toastation like the Cuisinart TOB-40.
  • There is a Cancel button to eject your toast mid-cycle. If you notice your toast is getting too dark to your liking, pushing the Cancel button will make it pop up.

This toaster oven with toaster slot on top also has its disadvantages:

  • The toaster slot could be a little narrow for some. If you are used to thicker bread slices, they could get stuck in between the slot.
  • The oven portion is small. If you are thinking of cooking full-sized meals for a family, this is the last toaster oven you should buy. It is more suitable for snacks and appetisers. At most, it is enough only for a 1-person meal.
  • This unit does not have a timer. If you are the forgetful type, you are definitely better off with a toaster oven with a timer like the Black & Decker TO1332SBD. Otherwise, you will be burning your food and causing a fire hazard.

The bottomline is this Hamilton Beach toaster oven with toaster built in is worth the price paid as long as you are aware of its small size and limited features. It is ideal for apartments and dorm rooms.

So, it is lucky that you can have a choice of colors for your Toastation. The Hamilton Beach 22708 Toastation is a black color model. You can have a red toaster oven with toaster on top with the model 22703. Both share the same features except for the color.

If you are not fussy about the color, then you can pick the cheaper one at the time of purchase. Sometimes, both models may retail at different prices. So, do take note and compare the prices prior to purchase.
