Streamlined recipes that save time and energy and make your cooking life easier.
A toaster oven can do so much more than make toast! Essentially a countertop oven, it can bake, roast, and broil (some have also convection and air-fryer features)—plus it heats up faster than a regular oven, uses less energy, and takes up less space, making it an efficient way to cook and bake in small batches. With years of experience helping home cooks get the most out of equipment ranging from food processors to skillets, we felt that the toaster oven offered serious untapped potential. In Toaster Oven Perfection we show the many ways to put this appliance to work and offer perfectly scaled-down recipes tested across a range of models to be sure they will work in yours.
FROM BAKED ZITI TO THANKSGIVING STUFFING:
Whether tackling the main event or a side dish (no jostling over space), toaster ovens excel at baking and roasting (proximity to the heat source means better browning). We use every inch of space to create sheet-pan meals for two, oven-fried treats, and comforting casseroles.
MOVE BEYOND TOAST FOR BREAKFAST:
Master easy grab-and-go breakfast sandwiches where all of the components bake on the pan together.
EMBRACE SMALL-BATCH BAKING:
Store slice-and-bake cookie dough in the freezer and bake them off a few at a time so they're always fresh; or pull out a couple of ramekins for easy fruit crisps sized just right.
