Having an oven in your modern kitchen is almost as essential as having a rice cooker (an absolute must-have in a Malaysian home) as it expands the range of cuisines you can prepare.
Thanks to the rapid development of oven technology in recent years, an oven now offers endless cooking possibilities. Whether you’re looking for one to help you roast a whole chicken, make homemade pizzas, oven-baked salmon, or air fry your favourite snack, here are the top kitchen ovens in Malaysia you can buy.

Why It's Our Top Pick:
"This oven is for those with limited counter space and who are looking for a basic oven.
The Hanabishi Toaster Oven HA611T offers easy-to-use controls and good toasting functions in a small package. At an affordable price, this oven is our top pick for its user-friendliness and simplicity."
However, due to its petite profile, the toaster oven can toast and reheat food very quickly without using too much energy. Featuring a 60-minute timer with a bell and a temperature range of 100 - 230°C, this oven is easy to operate and should be sufficient for baking and toasting. While this oven lacks fancy presets and settings you’d find in more expensive models, the HA611T is a small and energy-efficient unit that gets things done quickly.
User reviews praise the Hanabishi Toaster Oven’s cute compact Muji style design that offers just the right size to bake a few buns and smaller dishes. Hence, making it a top pick for those who want a simple toaster oven that does not hog up too much kitchen space. However, this compact toaster oven is not a great replacement for your traditional oven as it can't fit a whole sheet of cookies nor food for more than a few people.

The Russell Taylors 23L Oven Toaster OT-23 is a smart choice if you’re looking for a toaster oven with conventional controls and a slightly larger capacity.
In addition to toasting the perfect slice of bread for a hearty breakfast, this toaster oven is also good at broiling, baking, reheating, and keeping food warm.
The OT-23 Oven Toaster comes with four types of settings, a 30-minute timer with auto shutoff, and temperature adjustment of up to 230°C to give you the best possible cooking experience.

Convection ovens have a wide range of uses, but if you plan to bake cookies or buns in this appliance, then you’ll need a model like the highly-rated Midea 42L MEO Electric Oven.
Featuring rotisserie and convection functions, this model is similar to the Khind OT5205 reviewed above, but with a smaller capacity.
Nonetheless, this kitchen appliance can easily replace your full-size oven thanks to its unbeatable performance that lets you bake, broil, roast, toast, and reheat food quickly and consistently with its efficient metallic heating element tubes.

A microwave oven is a versatile appliance, making it a staple in most kitchens.

Featuring a turntable measuring 345mm, it can be used to bake a 6-inch pizza. You can even roast a whole chicken. It has 10 presets that make it easy to steam, bake, grill, etc. Besides, its LED display is easy to read and the dial allows you to set the temperature and timer by simply rotating it.
This oven allows you to adjust a wide temperature range, between 140°C to 230°C. The Child Lock is a nifty safety feature that will prevent any tampering and accidents.
We can’t find much fault with this microwave oven other than the steep price that may make it unattainable for some.

Looking for a versatile appliance? This air fryer oven by Riino is for you.
The first thing you may notice about the Riino AF510T Air Fryer Oven is that it does not come in an oddly shaped huge egg or space capsule. Rather, it features a large boxy shape that will fit more neatly on your kitchen countertop or cabinet.

Best of all, it even comes with 17 pre-set menu functions to help you prepare fuss-free hearty meals with just a push of a button.
Despite the name, the AF510T does more than air frying and baking; the kitchen appliance even has a rotisserie function to help to perfectly roast a small-sized chicken for your family to enjoy.
One thing worth noting though is that the air fryer oven heats up very quickly and your food may burn easily if you forget to check up on it. However, several users suggest reducing the temperature by 10 to 20°C for the same cooking duration to prevent burnt food. Several customers have also commented that the button noise can be a little loud, but otherwise the Riino AF510T oven is a great buy for its versatility.
