That's me. I have never owned a toaster oven before. Even growing up we always had toaster that held your bread slices upright, with the hot "grill" pressed up against the bread. I never understood why people had toaster ovens, I mean, how could the toast get toasted with out the hot "grill" being pressed up against both sides of the bread. I didn't know they were actual ovens. OVENS! Who knew?!?! Hysterically and sadly, even after my friend Jenn
mentioned to me that she made cookies in her toaster oven, I was like, "okay, crazy, you make cookies in your toaster, right!"
I couldn't imagine they were good. Then, I asked for one for Christmas. Why? Because I wanted to make chicken fries for the kids in them. I was tired of using toaster bags in my stand up toaster. When asking for a toaster oven, I was sure to include that it must have a broiler, because I may use it for toast, chicken fries and homemade garlic bread. Get all the use out of it that I can, right? Man. Iamanidiot. THIS THING ROCKS. It's an oven, people. I have made taquitos, chicken nuggets, garlic bread AND toast. All in the 2 days that I opened the box. It's like having two ovens, I feel like I have a DE-LUXE kitchen now. I bake and cook almost everyday...this is going down as one of the best gifts of all time.
While I am reviewing my Christmas gifts, I'm going to tell you about another MUST HAVE FOR 2007. The Research Alarm Clock
ITSELF. Not only does it set itself...it allows a different alarm time for each day of the week. Not sold yet? When you snooze your alarm clock, it actually blinks, to remind you that it's snoozing. You know, sometimes you have the OHMYGOD moment where you think you shut it off? Those moments no longer exists. How much does this bad boy cost? TWENTY BUCKS.
