Celebrating Mom #6: Kalorik 15L Toaster Oven {Review & Giveaway}

Kalorik{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Beau!}

I think that it goes without saying that this Mother's Day, moms everywhere should be spending their time relaxing with their feet up.

After having breakfast in bed.

While waiting to go to their massage appointment.

So, when it comes to a perfect present, why not choose one that will make Mom's life easier the other 364 days? Let's face it, moms everywhere spend a great deal of time taking care of their families, so if there is a way to save time and effort by investing in a superior product for your home, that's a gift that keeps on giving.

With that in mind, the name to turn to that is synonymous with fine engineering, unique product development and top-of-the-line small electric appliances that are sure to make Mom happy is none other than Kalorik.

small kitchen appliancesEstablished in Belgium more than 80 years ago, Kalorik's successes over the years with their innovative and quality items have made them a current leader in their industry. Their commitment to new trends in product development to their meticulous care for detail to their cutting edge manufacturing facilities have made them a well-known and trusted company worldwide.

Looking over the large variety of products that Kalorik has to offer, from blenders to slow cookers to waffle makers, there were quite a few that I knew would be a great addition to my kitchen. However, when the 15L Toaster Oven arrived, there was no doubt that it was exactly what we were lacking around here.

Kalorik toaster ovenHaving never owned a toaster oven (and I've really only used one a handful of times), this was one appliance that seemed like it could do it all. Why spend the time and cost of turning on my oven for something small if I didn't need to? Why stand at the stove to make a toasted sandwich if I could just pop it right into this handy machine?

Pulling the OV31513 out of the box, right away I thought the 15-liter capacity was going to be just right for small meals yet it wasn't going to take up half of my counter.

toaster ovenCompletely user-friendly, all that is really required for this toaster oven is to open the heat-resistant glass door and decide what you are going to toast, broil or bake.

toaster oven controlsFeaturing three dials for setting the temperature (up to 450°), function, and timer (up to 30 minutes) and accessories such as a broiling pan, broiling rack, wire rack, and slide-out crumb tray, my kitchen has been better off from the day that this arrived.

Perfect for anything from toasting up to four slices of bread at time for breakfast to baking a casserole or a 9-inch pizza for dinner, Kalorik has included just enough features to make this 1500-watt toaster oven fast and convenient while still being so intuitive that anyone can use it.

15L toaster ovenBeing that during meal preparation I am typically multitasking, the ability to preheat this toaster oven very quickly is extremely helpful. Plus, with the option of having the heat stay continuously on or to use the timer and have it turn off automatically after a set number of minutes, I know that my food will always be cooked correctly.

And, due to how fast I am able to make toast, heat up an appetizer or bake an individual-size pizza (which taste so much better this way rather than mushy from the microwave), it cuts down on the amount of time spent in the kitchen and away from eating with my family.

When it's time to clean up, the nonstick interior is easy to wipe off and the slide-out crumb tray removes most of the mess in one easy motion.

toaster oven crumb trayTo keep up with the demands of any busy household, Kalorik's 15L Toaster Oven has proven to be convenient, high quality and nearly foolproof. The attractive stainless steel and 15¾" x 9¼" size match well in nearly any kitchen and there is even a one-year limited warranty that comes along with your purchase just in case you're not satisfied.

With an MSRP of $149.99, right now the OV31513 retails for $89.99 and can be purchased directly from Kalorik - what a great idea for a practical yet enjoyable gift for Mother's Day! And, thanks to the generosity of Kalorik, one person will soon be able to toast, bake, and broil quickly and easily as well, because...

One lucky person will win a 15L Toaster Oven from Kalorik!
