Countertop oven for bread making
Does anybody have experience with baking bread in a countertop/ toaster oven?
We have to choose a smaller oven for my mum (she would replace her old Whirpool countertop oven - with microwave and convection), but I have no idea what is the minimal inside volume, so she can use it for baking bread. There are models from 26 - 40 litres (0.9-1.4 Cuft). Would it be possible to make a loaf from 500g flour or only smaller? What is the minimal inside hight so that the loaf has enough space to expand? And when baking in such a small oven with lower + upper heating is it still necessary to steam? How?
I am looking for a European mark (maybe German) but will be grateful for any hint!
