What dishes can I use in a Electric Toaster Oven???

Hi

I've just bought an electric toaster oven. What dishes can I use, please? I just want to warm food. Clay plates? Metal plates? Glass plates?

I don't intend to use it to cook.

Thanks :)

I'd say anything that says oven-safe would be acceptable. If you're just going to use it to warm foods, those should be just fine.

I think I would us metal trays until I know the thermostat is as it should be. Mine tends to be hotter than the thermostat should be so I'm glad I did not start with glass. With glass I set the temp about 50 degrees lower.

Cover the metal tray in foil -- easier to clean.

I wouldn't use any plates of any kind. It's not like a microwave, it's a real oven, just scaled down.
