As something many of us do every day, cooking can get pretty monotonous, even for the most enthusiastic home cook. Our comfort foods lose their appeal and those viral TikTok recipes don’t turn out as magically as they do online. When time in the kitchen starts to drag, simplify your daily meal preparation by incorporating a smart oven.
Considered expensive kitchen items due to their typically high price tag, smart ovens come with a number of neat features, which is why you’ll often see them with “12-in-1” or similar functions impressive. However, they are called “smart” for a reason. These devices essentially replace several kitchen appliances and can fry, reheat, bake, broil, roast, cook whole rotisserie chickens, and more. And thanks to their convection technology, you can let them do all the work without worrying about overcooking or undercooking your food.
Many popular kitchen appliance brands have their own smart ovens, including Breville, Cosori and Calphalon, so it’s likely that your brand of choice has one that you can introduce into your kitchen. Below, we’ve rounded up the 6 best smart ovens you can buy online, according to some reviewers who made the investment — and never turned on their regular oven again.
