Proctor Silex 31111 Toaster Oven

I’ve never owned a toaster oven before so I wasn’t sure if we should buy one after we got married. As a result, I did a LOT of research on toaster ovens in the past couple of weeks taking into account price, size, and how useful each toaster oven would be. In the end, we decided on the Proctor Silex 31111 toaster oven and now that we have a toaster oven, I feel like it’s one of the greatest inventions ever!

The first step is deciding whether you need a toaster or a toaster oven. Given the versatility of a toaster oven and the fact that small toaster ovens are not much more expensive than toasters, I think a toaster oven is an easy choice assuming you have the counter space for it. Next, you’ll have to decide how big a toaster oven you want. If you want one that is very capable but does not hog up counter space, the Proctor Silex 31111 toaster oven is a big win.

The Proctor Silex 31111 toaster oven’s external dimensions are 9 inches by 14.5 inches by 8.25 inches; that measurement is in terms of length (depth), width, then height. The result is an extremely compact toaster oven. But don’t be fooled by the small size since the space is efficiently allocated, and the Proctor Silex 31111 can hold quite a bit. It easily fits four slices of bread, a 9-inch pizza, or many family-size frozen dishes found in grocery stores.

Besides the space-saving feature, the Proctor Silex 31111 toaster oven is also priced very low. At just over $25, it’s cheaper than some ordinary toasters on the market! Of course, this low price means you won’t find any crazy features on the Proctor Silex 31111, but I consider that an advantage rather than a disadvantage. The toaster oven has two simple-to-use knobs and is very user-friendly. Nevertheless, it still comes with a baking pan for you to bake and/or broil in addition to standard toasting functions.

 

The Main Point

The Proctor Silex 31111 toaster oven is not meant to be a replacement for a traditional oven but if counter space is important and you are preparing meals for just you and your spouse, this toaster oven is a winner. As someone new to toaster ovens and unsure whether to buy one originally, I can look back now and say with confidence that this is one of the best purchases my wife and I have made.
