A convection toaster oven circulates heat around the food to decrease cooking time and use less energy than a regular oven. Baking sweet potatoes in the convection toaster oven takes about 1/3 less time than in a conventional oven, allowing you to enjoy the lower-calorie potato more often. A 3 1/2-oz. sweet potato contains about 141 calories, twice the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A and 42 percent of the recommended amount of vitamin C.
