Best mini ovens of 2019 – Don’t worry about space!

What features should the best mini ovens of 2019 carry?

If confidence, kind personality and a great sense of humour are the characteristics you can find on a charming person, then what are the features you should expect from the best mini ovens of 2019?

Considering that the oven is the heart of the kitchen and the oven is the centrepiece in it, the oven is an appliance you rely on so much in the daily life. There is no doubt that we all want a trustworthy oven that suits our cooking needs and lifestyle.

The mini ovens are particularly suitable for those who have a small kitchen or on a tight budget, but this does not necessarily mean that the mini ovens are inferior or those who own a high-class built-in oven do not need it. The mini oven serves as a more convenient and energy-saving option and is easier to be cleaned. Plus, food baked is equally scrumptious (if not, better).

The first model on our ‘best mini ovens of 2019’ guide is this Dualit 89200 Mini Oven and we have good reasons.

This mini oven is engineered to do pretty much everything a huge oven can but with a quick heat up time. With a powerful wattage of 1300W, this mini oven heats from room temperature to 180°C in only three minutes, or 230°C in under five minutes.

This compact mini oven only takes a small space in your kitchen but it is big on the inside. The back of the interior is curved, allowing you to accommodate larger circular dishes and making it your best helper when you are preparing meals for large numbers.

Other than the traditional hot air that bakes everything from cookies to chicken, this Dualit mini ovens offers a convection function that uses a fan to allow a faster baking, making it especially suitable for foods such as brownies and jacket potatoes.

Its double glazed heavy duty glass door not only gives you a great cooking control on your food but also helps in maximising its degree of insulation. In the delivery box, you will also see a pizza pan, a wire shelf and a grill pan and rack to be used in conjunction with its grill, bake, defrost and convection cooking functions.

The controls are easy to use too – there are three rotary dials that control the function, temperature (100-230°C) and cooking time (0 to 120 minutes) respectively. A bell will notify you when the cooking time has elapsed.

One area we particularly like the top of the oven – its top heats up during cooking and can be used as a plate warming area. Also, cleaning couldn’t be easier with this Dualit mini oven as all parts are non-stick and the removable crumb-drip tray is of full-width.
