If you’re using your toaster oven only for making toast, tuna melts, and Bagel Bites, you’re not getting the most out of it. In recent years, toaster oven technology has improved so much that they’re now considered a small, secondary oven. They bake, roast, broil, reheat, and keep food warm. And they’re so convenient to use: They preheat quickly, they're easy to clean, and they won’t heat up kitchens on hot days. Just last night I made dinner for myself—miso salmon, broccoli rabe, and sweet potatoes—using only the toaster oven.
When we purchased our winning toaster oven, it came with a few pieces of cooking equipment: an enameled baking pan, an enameled broiling rack, and a nonstick pizza pan. But if you want to utilize the full potential of your toaster oven, these three pieces of add-on equipment will make your life easier.
