While you may already be familiar with BALMUDA’s stunning, lightweight electric kettle, have you seen its sister product?

The BALMUDA toaster oven is the perfect small countertop appliance for foodies who love convenience and fast cooking times. With four bread modes and an additional oven mode that works for everything from bacon to cookies, this gorgeous piece of kitchen tech heats and bakes various foods to perfection every time. 

From your standard sandwich bread to pizza and pastries, it perfectly crisps the bread to your desired doneness level without going too far.

Also, as previously stated, the BALMUDA toaster oven isn’t limited to just bread. The impressive oven mode comes in three temperature zones to perfectly heat other foods, like lasagna or gratins. Choose from 350, 400 and 450 degrees when setting your desired temperature.

Another way the BALMUDA toaster vastly differs from your standard pop-up toaster is in its revolutionary cooking technology.

With the small 5cc cup provided in the package, users pour water into the toaster at the beginning of the cooking process. After this, the oven heats more rapidly than with air alone. When it comes to toast, this device makes the perfect crispy exterior while maintaining a velvety soft interior. So how is this done? Well, a thin layer of steam surrounds the bread, lightly toasting its surface while preserving its inner moisture and flavor.

This technology, coupled with the precise three temperature zones, create crisp and savory surfaces along with moist and fluffy insides.

With an Amazon customer rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, the BALMUDA toaster oven is a hit among shoppers. In fact, reviewers generally agree that it “makes perfect toast.”

One toast-loving shopper gushed that every piece she put in “came out perfect — soft, moist inside with a nicely toasted, slightly crunchy exterior.”

Another five-star reviewer who was a bit hesitant initially stressed that it’s absolutely “worth the money.”

“Holy moly! Best toast I have ever made,” the shopper wrote. “I did a comparison taste test with the Balmuda toaster vs. my cheap $60 toaster oven. You can really taste the difference.”
