Toaster Oven - Convection vs. Infrared

JayCook | Oct 19, 201508:58 AM     3

Looking to get a toaster oven and wasn't sure which was the better choice. I found this blog: http://thesweethome.com/reviews/the-b.... They recommend:

Convection - http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-TOB-2...

Infared - http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-NB-G1...

Obviously the use will primarily be for toasting bread, bagels, frozen food, etc. However, we also don't have a microwave, and I'd love to use a toaster oven as a replacement for that. Ultimately, we wanted a microwave just to reheat food... but this can be done in a toaster oven.

However, can it be done in the infrared toaster oven? It seems, to me, that the convection oven might be better suited for that? It is double the cost... but it's larger and comes with a bunch of accessories. We might not need the size or all the accessories I suppose. Though, the larger size makes it easier to reheat more food.

Anyway, what would you guys suggest?
