Innovative convection technology

Traditionally, toaster ovens deliver the heat from one central area which usually results in uneven cooking at sometimes, and might burn the dish. The Hamilton Beach Easy Reach Oven with Convection has been invested with the innovative convection technology. This comprises of a top and a bottom heating element plus a built-in fan.

Together, they deliver hot air throughout the interior space for even cooking and best results. However, one can always chose between the traditional operation, to bake cakes or other soft cooked items, and convection operation for crisp pizza crust or cookies.

Larger capacity

Hamilton Beach Easy Reach Toaster Oven spacious enough to house a 12 inch pizza, toast up to 6 bread slices at a time or broil the hamburgers. Once ready the food is easily accessible unlike the regular toasters which do not pop the toast high enough. A curved glass door lets you view your food while it is being cooked. Larger door and roll-top allows more working space and convenient access.

It is even easier to use through three intuitive controls. The top dial allows you to select temperature, the other one lets you choose between toast broil and bake and the last one is for time selection. Cleanup is easy with a slide out crumb tray.
