Question by : Why won’t my fish sticks cook in a toaster oven? Help?
We are trying to cook uncooked fish strips (that came battered) in the toaster oven. The directions said to cook in an oven at 350 for 15-20 mins. It’s been in there for 45 minutes, nothings wrong with the oven and it’s at 400. The batter is cooked fully, yet the inside of the fish looks raw still.. like light brown and a little mushy. The strips are made of haddock, cod and polluck. Whats going wrong?! How to know when it’s done for this mix of fish ugh..
Lol quite intelligent answers so far. I’m actually fine at cooking, but only currently am allowed a toaster oven, not a full oven. Never had a problem like this before. Shh.
Answer by Sprinkles on a Cupcake Maybe the oven is too high. When it is too high, the top burns and the inside stays raw. Maybe try turning it down to 350? Stick a meat thermometer in the middle of one of the fish sticks. The internal temperature should be at least 145*F. If they are 145*F or higher, they are cooked. If they are under 145*F, turn the oven temperature down to 350 and cook them longer.
Question by cutiepie15: can i bake brownies in toaster oven?
i need to make brownies but my oven isnt working. would it work if i put it in the toaster oven instead?
Answer by violet I do that all the time, it saves energy not using the big oven. Its a big toaster oven and bake in it a lot.
Though if you have a small toaster oven, not sure how close the heating elements would be to the brownies. Another idea, if a muffin pan fits in the toaster oven, it will bake faster and less likely to burn on top if using a small toaster oven.
Question by ttth: Which is more economical – gas oven or electric toaster oven?
I am trying a new recipe that requires cooking the meat for 5 hrs. Which is more economical, cooking in a gas oven or in an electric toaster oven?
Thanks for your input everyone. I started cooking in the toaster oven but noticed that the meat was just inches from the heating element, so switched to the gas oven. The meat turned out great, perfect pulled pork. The in-laws were impressed
Answer by Corvato generally the toaster oven would likely be, since it takes much less energy to keep a small enclosure’s temperature than a larger gas oven.
