Toaster Oven Perfection: A Smarter Way to Cook on a Smaller Scale

We rated this book:


This book aims to use the toaster over to cook meals for primarily two people. As the recipes have been tested, readers will have fewer issues with scaling recipes or adapting them for toaster ovens.

The recipes cover a wide variety of meals including main dishes for dinner, breakfast, sides, sandwiches, and desserts. Most of the savory recipes are not purely vegan. Each recipe spans a double-page and has a color picture of the finished product. In addition, each recipe has a header titled “Why This Recipe Works” which provides insight into the recipe’s intent or methodology. This section is helpful – especially for those readers who feel the urge to modify recipes – as it holds suggestions for which modifications may (or may not) work. A useful addendum is a section that ranks salient performance characteristics of several popular toaster ovens – something like the ranking one expects from Consumer Report.

Most of the recipes are fairly standard ones, and can be prepared easily. The utility is that America’s Test Kitchen has tried these recipes giving readers a viable starting point. I recommended this book for those cooking for one or two people.
