Title: Small fast acting conveyor toaster oven

Abstract: A toaster oven has a double wall housing with an air space between the double walls. The inner one of the double walls has a plurality of openings therein arranged above and below heating elements inside the oven. Inside the oven, an air divertor having a pair of spaced parallel walls is positioned adjacent each opening. One of the spaced plates has perforations so that an air stream in the air space between the double walls is driven through the openings, the space between the parallel plates, and out the perforations. A food product is located to receive the air emerging from the perforations. The individual perforations have a funnel shape in order to concentrate the emerging air and better paint the surface of the food product.
