Is there a difference between an air fryer and a toaster oven?
Convection microwaves and toaster ovens are both common kitchen appliances used to reheat or cook certain foods. While toaster ovens simply heat items from the outside, convection microwaves function as toaster ovens and microwave heaters.
The answer is yes. Air fryers are capable of toasting food, which is one of the main features of a toaster oven. However, an air fryer has many more features that overcast the limited functionality of a toaster oven. But there are limitations to air fryers as well.
Energy Efficiency Although the power consumption of an air fryer is usually higher than that of a toaster oven, to calculate the performance in terms of usage time compared to power usage, the air fryer is still more energy efficient than the toaster oven.
How to ‘Fry’ Food in a Toaster Oven. Convection toaster ovens can air-fry in the same way a convection oven can.
Energy Efficiency Toaster ovens use more energy (1,200-1,800 watts) compared to microwaves (700-1,300 watts). Further, since toaster ovens have longer cooking times, that energy will be used for an extended period. The microwave is a more energy-efficient appliance, regardless of EnergyStar certification or not.
Bread. If you put bread in a microwave you won’t end up with a ruined microwave, just a ruined piece of bread. After more than 10 or so seconds in a microwave, enough moisture leaves the bread to make it a hard, stale, chewy mess.
Simply put, a toaster oven uses a heating element to heat food through convection. Meanwhile, a microwave oven uses electromagnetic radiation that excites the water molecules in the food, which causes it to heat up.
Air fryers are better for cooking smaller items quickly and with a crispier texture. Toaster ovens are better for cooking larger items and at a more controlled rate. There is no better machine.
