A toaster oven might be wonderful for those who are trying to make meals during the summer time. Less heating up time implies a cooler kitchen in summer. There are occasions when you will wish to reheat your remaining pizza.

The conventional oven will takes forever to warm up, but a toaster oven eliminates the predicament because of it's fast preheating. There are numerous brands and models you could choose when trying to find a toaster oven. To minimize cleaning, try to find a toaster oven that includes nonstick inner walls and a removable crumb tray.

By having a toaster oven, it is possible to prepare anything from simple toast to sophisticated meals in a brief time. A toaster oven is normally used as a replacement or smaller version of the full size oven. It only needs a shorter period to heat than a standard oven and will cook food faster while reducing costs on electricity bills as well. With several heat and time settings, a convection digital toaster oven will be best suited for almost any cooking practice. Convection cooking moves heat round the food to obtain a more expedient and evenly cooked dish. Generally, durability may be the toughest thing to judge.

Those who actually bought a model will be able to reveal truly what the good and bad points are. For people who have smaller sized kitchens and limited space, a toaster oven is convenient because it is small thus needing less space.  

For example, here are seven ways to use the toaster oven other than making toast.

"Frozen Scones - We've talked before about how you can freeze scone dough and just bake off one or two at a time in the morning. Well, the toaster oven heats up faster and gets the job done. Try these Apricot Yogurt Scones or Grain-Free Lemon and Blueberry Scones.
Lemon Thyme Bruschetta - Make a small batch of these simple appetizers by toasting baguette slices and topping with lemon thyme ricotta drizzled with honey — hors d'oeuvres ready in 10 minutes!
Za'atar Pita Chips - Instead of buying pita chips, make your own!
Indoor S'mores  - A great excuse to make s'mores for two! Leave the top graham cracker off and assemble as usual. Toast until the marshmallows are golden brown and top with remaining graham cracker.
Sweet & Savory Roasted Cashews - A toaster oven is perfect for quickly toasting a batch of nuts.
Chocolate Chip Cookies - Make just two cookies with this recipe — the perfect size for any toaster oven.
Grilled Cheese Sandwich - Swap out making this classic sandwich in a pan for the toaster oven for a no mess dinner. Be sure to flip the sandwich and pay attention to where the heating elements are on your toaster oven to avoid funky toasting!..."

The Influences of Television

by andrea on May 8, 2012

My soon-to-be 3 years old son came up to me one day and suddenly asked for toasts. I thought I heard wrongly because I had never given mention toasts to him before, only sandwiches. So it is a surprise that he knew that word.

As we don't have a toaster since my previous one broke down, I think I should be reading some toaster reviews soon. I did wonder whether he knew what the word meant or he was just repeating something that he heard from his friends in kindergarten.

So I asked him what was "toasts" and he told me, in great detail, mind you, how to make toasts. When I asked him if he heard that from his kindergarten pals, he said no and that he wanted toasts because his favorite cartoon on TV "told" him that toasts were yummy.

And he believed the cartoon character and came to ask me for some. Looks like the TV had more influence on my boy than I had thought it did.

My Kitchen Needs a Toaster Oven

by andrea on May 8, 2012

I've tried to prepare healthy breakfast for my kids every day so that they get the right nutrients for their growing bodies. However, they do not enjoy the breakfast that I make for them. I cannot blame them as I only made boiled vegetables and hard boiled eggs for their breakfast.

Sometimes I make them salad. They kept pestering me for a toaster oven so that they can toast their own bread. I went on the Internet and read some toaster oven reviews to see which model I should buy. With those information from internet, I went out to the nearest store and bought one. It's from the Black Decker brand.

The next morning my kids saw the new toaster oven, they were so happy. From that day, they started toasting their own bread and spread various kinds of jams, chocolate paste and even cheese on them. I guess the boiled vegetable for breakfast has to be stop. It will be replaced by warm, crispy toasted bread. I am glad that my children do not complain about breakfast anymore. I love my children so I want the best for them.
