Because it’s Tuesday: Taoaster vs. Toaster Oven

It’s a feud as old as time. A debate that can turn friends and family against one another. A controversy that refuses to find middle ground…well, apparently except with the oddity to the left that I found at Walmart, but that’s not the point. The point is, everyone has an opinion on which is better to take up space on the kitchen counter: a toaster, or a toaster oven.

I’m firmly in the toaster camp at the moment. Over  a summer living up at college, one of my roommates had a toaster oven. For the entire break, I burned my finger’s on the stupid thing trying to get my toast out in the morning. Now I can already hear the cries about using tongs, and this, that, and the other thing, but in the morning, I like things simple. I shouldn’t have to fear burning. Moving past that, the thing never toasted my bagels, bread, or English muffins evenly.

When it comes down to it, I feel that a toaster oven can be practical. It is great for things like bagel bites, and other such frozen fair. Where it fails is the actual toast department. So, given my druthers, I’ll pick a toaster everytime, and just use a normal oven otherwise.

Still, that’s just my opinion. Where do other people weigh in on this most controversial of debates?

Taking All-In-One to a Whole New Level

As we are now getting into the month of August, I need to think about what to get my mother for her birthday. This is not as easy as it may sound because she is an extremely practical women. Instead of jewelry or flowers, she would rather have a new iron or coffee maker. That said, I started looking around for the right new coffee maker for her (It can’t be to fancy, just nice and simple).

While I was looking around, I came across the Sunpentown 3-in-1 Breakfast Maker. This contraption is the Frankenstein mash-up of a coffee pot, a toaster oven, and a fry pan. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about efficiency, and space conservation; living in a studio apartment myself, but this is mildly frightening. Besides the apparent danger of an open fry pan on top of a toaster oven, you can purchase this “solution” at Walmart for only $39.88. Quality craftsmenship right there.

As much as my mother is practical, I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that this might not be the new coffee maker she wants. I’ll continue my search,but for now, if you are horribly cramped on space, and crave an efficient start to your day, try this new kind of all-in-one….Just don’t come crying to me if your closet sized apartment bursts into flame.
