Compact Counter Cooking
Toaster ovens have come a long way.
Challenged for space but still love to entertain? That's no problem with the new breed of countertop ovens, such as this one from KitchenAid's Architect series. It bakes, broils and toasts, essentially duplicating the capacity of your oven for large dinner parties. It also uses less energy than a traditional oven — perfect for condo dwellers or if you're cooking for one. Silver, retro good looks will work in most kitchens, too.
