I haven't found a toaster oven yet that doesn't dry out toast more than a toaster does. Probably because the coils are further away and it takes longer. You need to start liking lighter toast and it will be better.
Have never used a toaster oven before. The toast was way too crispy even on a med setting. I can handle using the toaster for toast. Finding out now how it does on convection - bake with raw meat balls.

I'm really hoping Shrek will be apt to use it to fix his meals while I am at work since "I don't see any reason to heat up the entire oven for a meal for myself." Trying to get him to eat healthier is making me crazy.

That's what I thought. That was my biggest complaint with my toaster oven, but I didn't want to drag out a toaster all the time just for toast. I think I just got used to it being drier, but not toasting quite as dark helps, too.

LOL! Toast should not cause bleeding gums, specially since I am on a blood thinner. The meatballs were...okay. I hope I get the hang of it soon.

Hope you do too, PF! Sounds like a cool appliance!

Good gravy, I have enough silver colored chains to encircle the globe at least 3 times. Have no idea what Mom was thinking. Why would anyone need all these necklaces??? One is at least 8 ft long.

Good point! Bleeding gums are for flossing

I don't eat a lot of sliced bread so I keep a loaf in the freezer. Two slices go in the toaster over frozen solid and come out nicely toasted.

How long and at what temp? By the time it preheats I can have toast from the toaster and it doesn't inflict damage.

You're supposed to preheat a toaster oven before you make toast?
I never bothered. I don't preheat a regular toaster. Maybe that's why we are getting different results.
