Sometimes, a conventional oven is not available for use when you need it. Roaster ovens are smaller, more portable, and easy to use. They also have the added benefit of being able to sit on your counter without taking up too much space. Despite their name, roaster ovens bake just as well as conventional ovens. Baking a cake is easily achievable in one, though not many recipes exist for such a feat.
