Cooking with a convection toaster oven produces faster cooking than in a regular oven by using fans to force heat through the oven and surround the food rather than the heat coming only from the top or bottom. Pork chops, a lean cut of pork loin, are succulent and juicy when broiled in a convection oven. Low in calories and high in protein, pork chops are an excellent source of B vitamins. For a healthy dinner prepared quickly, your convection toaster oven is an essential kitchen aid to broil pork chops.
