Toaster Oven With 2 Racks

A toaster oven with 2 racks can save you much time since it can cook more food at one go. For example, you don’t have to do 2 rounds if you need to bake 2 pizzas for a larger family. This will not only save you time but also energy. However, such toaster ovens will tend to be bigger and the height is also slightly taller to accommodate the 2 rack slots. Below are a few toaster ovens with 2 racks to give you more cooking flexibility.

Hamilton Beach 31104 Countertop Oven

hamilton beach toaster oven with 2 racks

The Hamilton Beach 31104 is a pretty popular toaster oven because it comes with 2 additional cooking modes apart from the usual Bake, Broil and Toast. These are Convection and Rotisserie. While Convection can be found in many other toaster oven models, the Rotisserie function is less common. This Hamilton Beach Countertop Oven is one of the few that has included Rotisserie in its cooking modes for juicier and tastier meat.

The Rotisserie can fit a 5-lb chicken. The wire racks can take 2 12″ pizzas or 9″ x 13″ casseroles. It operates using 3 knobs with a 2-hour timer.

Value For Money Buy

We find the Hamilton Beach 31104 Countertop Oven to be an economical buy. For less than $100, you are getting the Convection and Rotisserie functions. As comparison, the Cuisinart TOB-200 Rotisserie Convection Toaster Oven will set you back over $150. While you can get a rotisserie toaster oven for much less than this Hamilton Beach unit, the cheaper ones would probably be missing the Convection feature. On top of that, 2 cooking racks, 2 baking pans, a broiler rack and rotisserie accessories are also included in the package.

Oster Extra Large Digital Countertop Oven

The Oster Extra Large Countertop Digital Oven TSSTTVDGXL-SHP is more expensive than the Hamilton Beach 31104 above but the difference is the former is a digital model. It uses touchpad control with a display screen. The Oster unit is also larger as it can fit 16″ pizzas compared to the usual 12″ and 13″.

However, it doesn’t have a Rotisserie function like the Hamilton Beach does. But it has a Defrost feature apart from Convection, Bake, Warm, Broil, Pizza and Toast. It also comes with 2 racks for doing multi-level cooking.

Large Capacity Countertop Oven

You probably can’t get any countertop toaster oven with 2 racks that is larger than the Oster TSSTTVDGXL-SHP. The interior dimensions are 15.75″ (W) x 16.36″ (D). The height from the lower rack to the upper heat element is 6.85″. While most toaster ovens will fit 4 to 8 slices of bread, this one can accommodate 14 slices of bread.

Hence, if you have a large family and need something big that can cook 2 large pizzas at the same time, this Oster toaster oven will the one to buy.

Nostalgia Retro Series 6-Slice Convection Toaster Oven

Nostalgia Retro Series Convection Toaster Oven

From contemporary models above, we go back in time to a retro design with the Nostalgia Retro Series 6-Slice Convection Toaster Oven. This one is a 1500-watt appliance with Bake, Convection, Broil and Toast/Pizza functions. Being retro in design, it uses dials to control the temperature, cooking function and timer. This toaster oven with 2 racks can fit 12″ pizzas in its interior.

The timer runs up to 60 minutes but there is a Stay On function for dishes that need longer cooking times. When the cooking cycle is up, the timer gives off an old-fashion “ding” as warning. 2 nickel-plated racks, an aluminum baking pan and a crumb tray go together inside this Nostalgia Retro Series Toaster Oven package.

For A Whimsical Look

This is one of the few red toaster ovens in the market for those who like a different look for their kitchen. For a retro design, you can match it with other appliances and items from the same company like kitchen clock, kettle, coffeemaker and blender.

While people may buy it for the looks, the Nostalgia Retro Series Toaster Oven does have pretty good ratings and reviews from buyers online. So, chances are you are not only getting a retro toaster oven that looks good but also functions well. The only problem is the the small lettering against the red background may be difficult to read for those with poorer eyesight.

Cuisinart TOB-260N Chef’s Toaster Convection Oven

cuisinart tob-260n

From cheaper toaster ovens, we will now take a look at the more expensive Cuisinart TOB-260N Chef’s Toaster Convection Oven which is the same as the TOB-260. This high end model has 15 cooking functions with programable settings that are stored in the oven’s memory for convenient retrieval. Being a digital model, you can customise the number of slices of bread, temperature and time for your toasting or cooking.

==> Check Price

The interior can fit a 13″ pizza or roast a 5-lb chicken. While it can fit 9 slices of bread, these are small slices. There are 4 rack positions and you are given 2 racks for multi-level cooking. You will also get a baking pan, broiling pan and pizza stone out of the box.

Why Should You Pay So Much?

The Cuisinart TOB-260N is actually cheaper than its main competitor, the Breville BOV845BSS Smart Oven Pro, at the time of writing. But compared to the 3 toaster ovens above, it will still seem overpriced.

But you get what you pay for because there are definitely more features built into this Cuisinart toaster oven to give you optimum cooking results. The Exact Heat sensor is there to maintain more precise temperature. The Always Even Toast Shade Control will help to give more consistent toasting performance. These are part of the technology that adds to the cost of the appliance.

Apart from that, the varied cooking functions also ensures you can cook a wider variety of recipes. The Dual Cook makes it possible to try recipes that demand different cooking modes and temperatures. The Speed Convection cuts down on cooking time with no pre-heating required. Hence, you might need to pay much more than a Hamilton Beach or Oster toaster oven, but the Cuisinart TOB-260N has features that you can never find on the cheaper models.

A Note On Buying Toaster Oven With 2 Racks

Bear in mind that many toaster ovens come with 2 or more rack slots. But that doesn’t mean that you will get more than 1 wire rack to go with the corresponding number of slots. Most toaster ovens will only provide 1 wire rack. If you need more, you will have to order them separately. Sometimes, it may also be difficult to buy the rack separately because they may not be widely available.

All the models shown above are toaster ovens with 2 racks included at the time of writing. You don’t have to worry about getting an additional rack and you can be sure that they will fit as they are part of the package.
