When my husband and I moved in to our first apartment, there were two thing the previous owner left behind: a baking sheet and a toaster. Last year when I made some bacon-wrapped scallops the bacon grease finally killed that old baking sheet. These past few weeks Mercury went retrograde which turns anything related to communications and anything electrical upside down. As a result, it totally attacked my life, including my toaster.
My old reliable toaster has finally given up the ghost, along with my camera. I am not usually sentimental over stuff but these two losses suck!
I asked people on my Facebook Group for advice on buying a toaster and there ended up being a great suggestion, why don’t I buy a toaster oven instead? Well, that sparked a long and fascinating dialogue and love/hate discussion on toaster ovens.
Now that it is a little safer to be near electronics, I really need to replace Mercury’s last and final (I hope) victim in my home. I would love to get your advice! Toasters are not inexpensive, so for close to the same price I could get a toaster oven. That way I could also cook and bake in the summer which I can’t do right now.
What do you think? Toaster ovens: love ’em or hate ’em? Feel free to be absolutely and brutally honest.
