Countertop Stainless Steel Ovens with no reference to non-stick elements, 2020 Editor’s Top Picks

Our web search indicates to best avoid having non-stick coating on countertop oven appliances particularly, the interior of the oven. Non-stick coatings made from man-made chemicals PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene, a plastic compound; well known brand is Teflon) and PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic Acid, aka c8, a synthethic compound that is also used in making PTFE) are found to have carcinogenic properties that could pose significant health risks from the use of products treated with coatings containing these chemicals; seems that most countertop ovens that make reference to non-stick interiors are coated with materials made from PTFE/PFOA/PFAs. Would not recommend cooking or heating highly acidic food or liquids for long cooking durations on stainless steel containers with nickel. Note that it may be more work to clean the interior of ovens without non-stick coating.
