Calaphon’s Performance Cool Touch oven is a countertop oven that uses quartz heating, but keeps the outer surface 75% cooler than ordinary toaster ovens, so you can touch the surface and use the top for storage without burning anything or anyone. Usually $300, the. Not only is this only the third time it’s been on sale in a year, but it’s also within $10 of the all-time low price of $200.
This toaster oven is chock-full of cool tech, like a gorgeous high-contrast LCD and touchscreen interface. It has a dozen cooking functions, like toast, bake, roast, broil, pizza, cookies and proofing (). You can also “stack” baking commands for one-step unattended cooking, such as going from bake to broil automatically.
The oven can fit a 12-inch pizza and comes with a baking pan, dehydrator basket, wire rack and pizza pan.
And incidentally, if you’re looking for something a little cheaper, theat Best Buy, which is $50 off the regular price. It lacks some of the cooking functions you’ll find in the Cool Touch oven (it has eight rather than 12) and you can’t program one-step baking commands. But it’s the same size as the more expensive model and is $60 cheaper.
