Do you use your toaster oven to toast bread?

    I tried it several times & ended up buying a toaster. I found it practically impossible to do!
    While a toaster oven is good for doing most things, & can be used as a 2nd oven, plus it saves you from having to heat up your regular size oven, toasting bread is not one of my favorite things to do in the toaster oven.

    Don't get me wrong,I like it for other things. It can be used if your main oven is full, or for making hot snacks, or for making a holiday meal, for small cakes, roasts, steaks & a few pieces of chicken, but Not for making toast..

    What is your opinion on this? :wink:

    Like you I did use a toaster oven for quite a long time. In the end my son and daughter begged me to get a toaster. They are right of course - its quicker and more even. I was simply trying to save counter space! I do use the toaster oven for quite a lot of things though - sausages, bacon, cheese on toast etc.

    We do. I bought a Breville toaster oven last year as my wife uses one almost daily. It was a little pricey but had great reviews. If you use the proper settings and move the shelf around for what you are making, it works quite well.

    The kids who I babysit were over for a weekend. I tried heating some frozen waffles for their breakfast. They got too hard in the oven & the toaster oven faired no better..
    I said; Enough is enough!! So while I was out getting a drip coffee maker, I figured that I'd get a new toaster as well.

    The problem of making toast had happily ended!! :wink:
