    I had a bagel with cream cheese last night, first time ever having cream cheese on a bagel. Now Im debating whether to buy a toaster or a toaster over to make them. Ive used toasters in the past and but not much experience with a toaster over. They have one at the chow hall but its slow and doesnt toast evenly on both sides, is this typical of most toaster ovens or just a crappy one.
  2. We actually have a toaster and a toaster oven in my house, since the toaster oven was a 'gift'. :p

    As for which one I prefer? Personally, I like the toaster oven more.. I don't find one side is more or less cooked than the other and its nice because you have more options of what to cook in it, where-as a toaster is mainly bread and bagels.. so to answer your question, that secondrate toaster oven you used shouldn't leave bad impressions with you :ninja:

    My vote goes to toaster oven.

    I have a nice Dualit toaster that has wide slots for bagels and does a wonderful job.

    If I want to toast something more than bread products...that's why I have an oven with a broil setting.

    Besides, Unless you have unlimited counter space, a toaster oven is just another poorly designed appliance to add to the clutter the more important appliances, the coffee maker, bean grinder, Waring blender, etc.

    I also use the broiler feature on our oven for items that won't fit in the toaster.

  6. +1. I'll use the toaster oven if there's more to toast than just one bagle at a time, but I find the toaster oven takes quite a long time to toast something, compared to the toaster. Takes longer to heat up, and then the bagle/bread/whatever is farther from the elements than in a toaster. My vote: Get a toaster with the wide slots.

    ..Mmmm...creamcheese.... Good choice. ;)

    (P.S. Had a heck of a time trying not to spell it "over" instead of oven. I feel for ya, man! Fingers just didn't want to go where they're supposed to. Stupid Fingers!) :D

    Toaster Oven. I can cook stuff with it. Marinate some chicken and toss it in there. Can't do that on a toaster.
