I’ve owned the Panasonic FlashXpress Toaster Oven for the past few years now and purchased it based on a recommendation from our friend Melinda.
This is an incredible and small toaster oven that is not terribly expensive for an appliance ($119).
What makes this toaster oven special? Well it does not have a traditional heating element. It uses infra red light which means it heats up nearly instantly. It takes a bit of getting used to as the thing is super bright when the heating element is on.
I am impatient when I am hungry and this toaster oven is super fast.
How does it work? Here is what Panasonic has to say.
Panasonic FlashXpress G110P compact toaster oven technology featuring double infrared ray heater for cooking up to 40% faster than conventional toaster ovens, instant heat eliminates preheating.
I really love this product. It essentially goes from off to hot in seconds
It now comes on black too!
