    WTF, they are both boxes that get hot, right?

    Therefore I can cook my stuff in the toaster, and get the same effects.




    Point being....I don't want to wait forever for the real oven to preheat to 450.

    Hard to cook a pie or a roast in one of those things, good for my frozen waffles though.

    Yeah, I'm talking about a 'side dish', not main course.

    I normally use the oven, but I guess I should use the toaster more often.

    I fired up the oven.

    :c

    I believe a real oven is much larger.

    Regular oven works much better, but I use my toaster oven more often.

    I use conventional oven for dinner, and other bigger projects, and the toaster for most everything else.

    I ended up going with the real oven.



    I just 'Trust' it more than the toaster oven. :(

    I use my toaster oven a lot, especially when it's hot outside. It heats up and cools down much more quickly. It seems to do a fine job.

    I'm totally safety first, and always take the paperplates off the top of the toaster prior to use, and make sure that there are no combustibles anywhere in the immediate area. :grad:

    Toaster ovens are made for reheating pizza.

    Put some wax on top of it and make it a THC scent-si
