The snowflake is the Defrost setting...not for making snow cones.

Bummer. I was hoping for a snow cone setting when I ordered it.

And my toaster oven came in a day early. It's sitting in it's spot all plugged in. It's a LOT smaller than I thought it would be. I pressed some buttons and turned some knobs and decided I better read the owners' manual. I'm not quite sure what the snowflake button does. I'm hoping the manual is in forty languages. I've never seen a toaster oven operating manual so thick before. But then I don't think I've ever seen a toaster oven operating manual period before.
What kind of toaster oven, Pac? I'm looking for a good small one. The one I have only has dials and occasionally sticks in the on position, but it is nice and small.

Zhiz, if you're looking for small, I just got the Breville Mini, a smaller version of what Pac got. Have been playing with it, and it fits great on the counter and seems perfect for 1or 2 people.

Yes, I ended up with the Breville Compact, like my toaster oven thread said. I'm making croutons as we speak. Whoo-Hoo.
The settings are probably more technical than I needed. I'm not sure about this warm up stuff... I already had my own internal clock for that, but it seems kind of neat.

Ah, but look at the long time we did have to use it starting 1919 or somewhere around that year.

So true. The Cubs fans deserve a medal for their undying support and hope for a miracle. Maybe someday. After all Boston got their miracle. So you know it can happen.

Quick question then.
The first batch was done. The timer had run out. I hurried up and got another batch ready while the oven was still hot and it took me twenty minutes to get the oven back on

After much fooling around; will the oven only run when the last thing you set is the timer? It didn't seem to be doing anything with the temp diplayed, even in red, but when I reset the timer and just left it alone for a while it finally started counting down. And I know it must have had to reheat by then, but it didn't say it preheating.

It should start counting down once it's at temp. I haven't yet, used mine to do a second pan or dish so I hadn't noticed a delay between cycles. I do know it cools quickly. Sorry not much help.
