There are never stupid questions… and I have an apartment size stove. They’re half the size of a regular one.

You’ll need to tweak it a bit for the toaster oven. They don’t have the same capabilities as a conventional oven.

Usually if you’re cooking something, they’ll have directions on the package that will show how to cook it in each type of oven that you might have.

I find my toaster oven takes aproximately the same time/temp as the conventional oven instructions (if there’s no separate toaster oven instructions), I just make super sure of doneness because I find sometimes the heat isn’t as even. It’s super convenient for one or two people and great in the summer because it heats up the kitchen way less. It also preheats faster! (Mine’s a cheapo one though, maybe a better one would be more consistant)

i have a big toaster oven that’s convection so i find it cooks things a bit quicker.  of course the heat up time is quicker too.

I usually use the same time/temp as the conventional oven instructions as well.  Just watch your food and check for doneness.  Also you may need to cover some things lightly with foil so it doesn’t get burnt.  I find that some times because the heating element is closer to the food in a toaster oven, things can burn or get a little too crispy.  Not all the time, just some times.  Just tent with some foil if you notice this starting to happen. Happy toaster oven-ing! 🙂

We have both a regular oven and a toaster oven and I don’t find any difference in the cooking temps/times.

I actually find that the toaster oven tends to cook things a little faster.  It might be because the food is closer to the heating unit than in the large oven.

I used to have a mini-oven that also had 3 rings on the top.  I loved it!  It cooked ever so slightly quicker – you just need to keep an eye on it the first few uses, just like any new oven really, just until you get used to how it cooks.  IN actualy fact, sometimes I miss that oven…

Hahaha…I was wondering if this was going to be a question about a broiler, because that definitely happened to be a couple of weeks ago (who knew that the broiler in a gas oven was different than one in an electric? by the way, ours is broken).
