    Regular slice of bread? A "toaster" may have an advantage.

    But try THIS with a "toaster"! :

    * 1.5 inch thick slice of any loaf of bread? T.Ov.

    * Half loaf,sliced length-wise? T.Ov.

    * Half loaf,sliced any way,with cheese? T.Ov.

    * Half loaf,sliced any way,w/ ingredeants T.Ov.

    * Pastries warmed up? T.Ov.

    * Warm up pizza? T.Ov.

    * BAKE a pizza? T.Ov.

    * Make Garlic bread? T.Ov.

    * Re Heat any meal? T.Ov.

    * Cook chicken? T.Ov.

    * Cook Pork chops?

    * Cook Pork steaks? T.Ov.

    * Cook Pork loin? T.Ov.

    * Cook Pork roast? T.Ov.

    * Cook Steak? T.Ov.

    * Cook Beef roast? T.Ov.

    OK, don't want to get too carried away...

    I've owned "toaster ovens" for the last 8 years and have not paid more than $75 for any of them. (Paid $15 for my first T.O. and it lasted over 16 months)

    And, yes, I've done all the above listed "cooking" in my curent toaster oven.

    Toaster oven is better because you could cook/heat up/ toast other things besides just like bread, bagles, and english muffins. For example, if you wanted to toast a baguette, you could toast the whole thing instead of a couple slices at a time. And you can cook anything in a toaster oven that you can cook in a regular oven that will fit. Also, you can make cheese toast in a toaster oven.

    You can do more in the toaster oven. You can make personal pizzas or any other frozen food that has toaster oven instructions. By using the toaster oven, it uses a lot less electricity than a normal oven. Plus also because it is smaller, it takes less time.

    With a toaster - all you can do is toast bread, bagels, english muffins and any other bread product!

    A toaster oven is a mulitasker.

    Broil

    Bake

    Toast

    Reheat

    Prep frozen entree's

    Roast nuts

    Crisp leftovers.

    Use for baking small quantities when you don't want to start the large kitchen oven (extra electricity and heat)

    A toaster just toasts!

    I like the toaster for making toast and bagels.

    I like the toaster oven for cooking and baking everthing that would go into an oven, only in smaller quanity and size.

    I have a Hamilton Beach convection with rotisserie toaster oven. Bake cookies, cakes. Cook rotisserie chicken, casseroles, any other dishes.

    a toaster is good for bread or bagel but a toaster oven is great for cheese toast or cinnamon toast or anything with toppings (things you couldn't put in a standard toaster because they would cause a fire)...a toaster oven you can toast, bake or broil in....a toaster you only can toast in...

    You can bake in most toaster ovens such as pies and cookies.

    You only make toast in a toaster.

    Toaster can toast bread, toaster ovens can cook and reheat things like leftover pizza that wouldn't fit in a toaster.
