No toaster oven cause no health problems unless you burn your food or bread in it and then eat it. Burnt food is not good for you.


Benefits of the Toaster Oven
We bought a toaster oven off Craigslist for just $ 20, and I love it for the fol­low­ing reasons:

1. Heats food slowly and nat­u­rally like a stan­dard oven.
2. Uses less elec­tric­ity than stan­dard oven – for a small family, you can bake prac­ti­cally any­thing in it for far less time, because it doesn’t have to heat up such a large space, as in an oven. This results in using less elec­tric­ity (although the dif­fer­ences are not dras­ti­cally sig­nif­i­cant). I bake casseroles, toast bread, reheat left­overs, and thaw food (on those for­get­ful days!) all in my toaster oven!

3. Sim­pli­fies your kitchen – no need for a toaster or a microwave, and even an oven at times! Why do we need so many dif­fer­ent appli­ances and gad­gets? Why not sim­plify by choic­ing options that can accom­plish two or more tasks in one!
4. Don’t have to heat up the whole kitchen! Espe­cially on a hot day, this is a great alter­na­tive than the oven!
5. Works as a warm­ing oven- keep already cooked food warm before serv­ing! Another advan­tage is when you have mul­ti­ple things need­ing to be baked, when need­ing to cook two things at dif­fer­ent tem­per­a­tures -
6. Easy clean up! If some­thing spills, you simply pull out the tray!
7. Great for small places and rea­son­ably priced!

Just some things to consider…


Microwaves are thought to destroy and deform food mol­e­cules. In fact, one study pub­lished in the Jour­nal of the Sci­ence of Food and Agri­cul­ture found that broc­coli “zapped” in the microwave with a little water lost up to 97 per­cent of the ben­e­fi­cial antiox­i­dant chem­i­cals it contains.

So what’s the rush to pos­si­bly destroy some of the nutri­tional value of your food? Other con­cerns have been pos­si­ble con­nec­tion to cancer, brain tumors, immune system defi­cien­cies, and the list goes on. There is indeed much con­tro­versy over the health con­cerns of microwaves, and I am not totally con­vinced of the harm­ful­ness of its use, but I am just pro­vid­ing some food for thought, and maybe we should all step back and con­sider. Why would Russia ban the use of microwaves in 1976? Inter­est­ing to note.

Why won’t my fish sticks cook in a toaster oven? Help?

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.

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.

can i bake brownies in toaster oven?

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.

Which is more economical – gas oven or electric 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.
