The weeks go by so quickly, and it’s Tuesday once again. I hope you liked my first Tuesday tip last week and this new weekly post. I have fallen in love with the S’well bottles and how cold they keep the water, so now I must hint to my family that it would make a nice birthday present. But, on to today’s tip; it is a small kitchen appliance that I’m not sure how we have lived without it for so long.
As you have guessed my tip for today involves a toaster oven and how our family uses this small appliance just like my husband did in his bachelor days! For years, we had a little conventional toaster that stopped working many times, and somehow I was able to fix it. Finally, it officially stopped working about three months ago, and my husband had a mini celebration with our kids! Well, instead of replacing it with another toaster, I decided to take the plunge and buy a toaster oven. My brother owns a Breville, and he is incredibly thorough on researching everything he buys. So, I listened to his advice, and we are now the proud owners of a Breville Toaster Oven. We have found that we use it for practically everything. It not only toasts bread but warms up food beautifully. And the surprising thing is that it is cooks food quicker than our oven since it has a significantly smaller area to heat up. Also, have you noticed that microwaves will heat up a pizza quickly, but it zaps all the moist out of it, and it turns hard and tough to eat. The toaster oven bakes things and keeps food moist like a conventional oven.
The Breville Toaster Oven that we own has three levels for the rack; top is for broiling, the middle is for toast, and the bottom is for baking. Also, the oven has words inscribed on the oven, so you know which setting you will need for whatever you are cooking. The oven is pretty intuitive and easy to use.
The clean up is quick and easy since the bottom tray slides out. Just a little soap and water and it’s cleaned. No scary bottom that holds all the old food crumbs that I saw with my husband’s oven! Do you remember how nasty the bottom was on those old toaster ovens?
Just the other day, my husband and I realized that our Breville oven is one of the top appliances that we use the most in our kitchen! I’m very pleased with our purchase, and I hope this helps you if you were thinking of buying this excellent appliance.
