Do you think you could get by with no oven in your kitchen? You may think you need an oven. I haven’t had one for some time. Instead I use small appliances that use less space and less energy.
The original reason I had apartment maintenance come take my oven was so that I could fit a washer into my kitchen. The kind that hooks up to your sink faucet. And I don’t regret it.
I’ve been getting some questions I will answer here. The electric skillet you see above will take the place of my stove top.
It is a Presto Fold Away. Which means you can make it smaller to store. The inside can be taken out and washed.
This one got high ratings at every online store I checked. It was under $50.
I bought mine from Walmart.com.

I have been debating on and reviewing toaster/convection ovens for a month. I do a LOT of research before I buy. The one that seems to get the best ratings is not cheap. Average: $249. But there are smaller ones and other brands.
I don’t know that I will get one. But will show you the top of the line and best rated, made in Australia. It is from a company called Breville.
Here’s what Amazon.com says:
1800-watt convection toaster oven with 0.8-cubic-foot nonstick interior

control over the heat; 9 pre-set functions. Blue back-lit LCD screen
