(Best Syndication News) - Panasonic introduced a new NB-G110P FlashXpress Toaster Oven that uses quartz ceramic and infrared heating elements. The new toaster oven is very compact, but still offers large interior cooking space for food. The oven utilizes quartz and ceramic technology that offers double-power infrared cooking. That equates to faster cooking time and more evenly heated food.

The new FlashXpress toaster also has many preset buttons for cooking common food items, which leaves the guesswork out of how long to cook it. The user can also specify their own temperatures and shade of food with the controls on the unit. In addition, a digital timer can be set between 30 seconds and 25 minutes. When the timer is completed, there is a beep sound. The toaster oven also has a built-in light that can be turned on and off from a button on the front control panel. The toaster has a removable crumb tray for easy cleanup.
