My toaster oven may be the hardest working appliance in my kitchen. I use it for everything – baking a couple of cookies, roasting vegetables, baking bread, cooking bacon, and more. I love that it doesn’t require any preheating, and it doesn’t heat up my kitchen the way my large oven does. This means I’m saving on the cost of heating my big oven as well as the cost of cooling the house back down.
If you don’t have pans that fit in your toaster oven, you can do most things with a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. But you may want to invest in a set of small pans like these:
I have this set and the pans fit perfectly in my toaster oven.
