Cooking with Dash Chef Series 7-in-1 Convection Toaster Oven
Dash Chef Series convection toaster oven cooks quite well. Almost everything is made delicious and juicy. It has 7 cooking modes: warm, toast, air fry, broil, bake, convection bake and rotisserie.
Toasting and baking modes work great. Air Fry mode works great most of the time but ocasionally results might be less than perfect with some foods. Broiler cooking mode is decent but not great as well.
Dash Chef Series convection toaster oven comes with rotisserie accessories so you can cook a small chicken or cornish hen. The rotisserie feature works great and results are delicious.
Are there convection toaster ovens that cook better? There are however they are also more expensive and sometimes less versatile than Dash DAFT2350 Chef Series. For example Cuisinart TOB-260N1 typically retails at higher price and doesn’t have rotisserie feature. June Oven is the perfect convection oven however it’s far too expensive for most.

Most convection toaster ovens have digital controls but not this one. Dash DAFT2350 is equipped with old-school mechanical knobs and no display screen.
