I've been thinking about buying a toaster (or toaster-convection) oven for the summer, since most of the cooking done in my house is for two people. Plus, our gas oven can make the house hotter than it is outside. Ick.
Anyone have suggestions for a particular kind of toaster oven? Good or bad experiences with them? Anything you would or wouldn't make in one?
I have the "Small Batch Baking" Cookbook by Debby Maugans-Nakos, but I've been hesitant to try it because it seems like a waste of energy to heat up the oven for six cookies or two biscuits.
Also, I do have a microwave oven but I hardly use it for anything but for reheating, thawing, popcorn, and the occasional Gardenburger. I've never really liked how microwaves cook food; it seems to make everything dry. If anyone has had success with microwave cooking I'd be glad to hear that too!
