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?
