If there was an award for “person who uses an air fryer the most,” I would have a serious shot at winning it. I’m not kidding—I use it for everything.

I regularly roast crispy chicken, bake salmon, heat leftovers, whip up my meal kit recipes (more about that here), and even bake cookies. Besides making mealtime quick and easy, air fryers have allowed me to ignore my massive 1960s-era oven in my New York City apartment (a.k.a. the appliance that turns my home into a sauna anytime I switch it on).

Since so much of my cooking centers around air-frying, I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to test out Our Place’s newest aesthetically pleasing product: the Wonder Oven. A week or so later, the lovely sandy-colored 6-in-1 air fryer and toaster oven arrived at my door—and I couldn’t wait to see if it was just as enjoyable and simple to use as I’d heard. After getting well-acquainted with it, here are my thoughts on the buzzy appliance.

What makes the Our Place Wonder Oven stand out

Our Place is known for making top-notch products that get the job done and look good while doing so (pastel-colored Dutch ovens, pretty multifunctional pans and pots you actually want to leave on the stove—need we say more?). Because of this, I wasn’t surprised to find many noteworthy features that make the Wonder Oven a must-have:

Attractive design

This may be one of the nicest looking air fryer combos on the market right now. Most other options are bulky with a monotonous design, and often look like something you’d find on a spaceship (and not in a fun, fantastical way). The Wonder Oven, design-wise, is the opposite—it’s compact, chic, and looks nice sitting on a kitchen countertop. It also comes in a few different colors, like char (gray), steam (a sandy beige), blue salt, and the limited edition spice (pale pink orange).

It also reminds me a bit of an Easy Bake Oven (maybe it’s the ding when the timer is up), which was one of my favorite toys growing up, so that’s a nostalgic bonus.

Easy to use

The Wonder Oven is very straightforward, with just three dials—one for temperature, one for cooking function, and one that works as a timer. After setting it up, all you have to do is adjust each knob to your desired temperature (200 to 400 degrees), function (air-fry, bake, roast, toast, reheat, and broil), and time (0 to 60 minutes). I was honestly taken aback by how easy it was to operate—the first time I used the oven, I kept rechecking the manual and googling “how-to instructions” to ensure I didn’t accidentally skip anything. If you’re someone who shies away from excess smart technology or digital interfaces in your appliances, you’ll appreciate the Wonder Oven’s simplicity.

Multifunctional design

Multifunctionality is a bit of a theme at Our Place (cue the do-it-all Always Pans), and the Wonder Oven doesn’t disappoint in this area. This countertop appliance can air-fry tofu, bake salmon, broil meat, roast veggies, toast bread, reheat restaurant leftovers, and so much more. It heats up in around two minutes (score!) and uses a 360-degree design to blast food with hot air from all angles.

One of its coolest details is its steam-infusion technology, which can work in tandem with any cooking function. All you have to do is pour a teaspoon or two of water into the inlet, and it helps prevent food from drying out during the cooking process. Tip: This feature is especially useful when heating up leftovers or giving extra life to day-old bread.

Spacious yet compact

Another aspect I love about the Wonder Oven is its clever use of space. It has two levels, so you can cook different dishes simultaneously, which is a time-saving game-changer. For example, I can roast a protein on the wire rack and cook vegetables on the baking sheet below. (In contrast, my previous air fryer only had one layer, and it took twice as long to prepare dinner.)

That said, even though the Wonder Oven is spacious, it doesn’t have a large footprint. At 11.6 inches high, 10.6 inches in depth, and 11.5 inches wide, the Wonder Oven is a manageable size that seamlessly fits on my small Manhattan countertop. Plus, it doesn’t hit the bottom of my cabinets, and has plenty of space to spare.

Reasonably priced

The Wonder Oven costs $195, which I found to be slightly below average for a dual air fryer and toaster oven (around $250). As someone who is basically using this product in place of an oven, I personally think you get a pretty great value for the price.


Normally the accessories that come with kitchen appliances aren’t anything to write home about, but that’s not the case with the Wonder Oven. I was (literally) ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the bonus gadgets, which include a sleek air fryer basket, a nifty wire rack, and a handy crumb tray. There’s also a nonstick ceramic-coated sheet pan—and when I used it to make salmon, the food slid right off when it was time to plate. What’s more, each accessory felt durable and high-quality.

Should you buy the Wonder Oven?

If you’re like me and use an air fryer for anything and everything, the Wonder Oven would make a great addition to your kitchen. Not only does it come chock-full of cooking functions and accessories, but it’s also pretty freaking cute. Additionally, the price is competitive, especially considering the appliance offers six gadgets in one. Lastly, its multilayer capability could work great for both smaller and larger households, since you can whip up multiple dishes and sides at once. The only caveat (and it’s a teensy one) that I have is that it’s a bit tricky to get the timer to the exact minute you want it to—so if you prefer timing precision, you may want to opt for an air fryer with a digital interface. Other than that, the Wonder Oven is exactly what I’d imagined it to be—wonderful.
