Toaster Oven Modification for PCB Reflow

This is a video on a toaster oven modification for PCB reflow purposes. I got a toaster oven at Walmart for $20 and added a reflow controller called the Controleo from For folks who don't know what reflowing is, you can read about it here. I wanted to  make some PCBs at home using SMD components, and decided to give this project a try.

The Controleo setup was pretty painless and inexpensive. If you do decide to do this modification, please do so at your own risk. AC voltages can bite you if handled improperly. Happy reflowing!!


  1. Hello,

    I can't find any contact info in the site so forgive me for using the comment section. I'm Algen, I work with engineering website and would love to have your website featured as a site of the day on EEWeb. Is this of interest to you?

    Hope to hear from you soon.



    1. Apologies for the very tardy response. Please use the contact form to contact us. Thanks.

  2. How much did the entire thing cost?

  3. The very standard toaster oven obtainable has a number of heat configurations that you can use depending on what you are cooking.

  4. I'll review this blog as An and it demonstrates how much exertion has been put into this.Emily
