Baking cookies in a convection oven is so easy that you can let your kids do it. High end convection ovens even have a self-eject tray, so that the kids do not have to reach inside and burn their little fingers. Because your oven is small, there is no wasted energy even if you want just a few cookies to satisfy a sudden craving. Be careful to get them out when done, they will be cooked much faster than in a regular oven.
A bot of luxury – chocolate fondue
Melting chocolate can be a hit or miss job. If you try to cook it on the stove top, it can burn or turn into lumps. Your convection toaster oven will do the job with no mess and no fuss. Use a shallow heat-proof ceramic dish that you can put straight on the table, and let your guests dig in. Melted chocolate, also called chocolate fondue, works best if you dip strawberries, pieces of pineapples or papayas in it. Cookies work fine too.
Make your own trail mix
Many health-conscious people like to make their own mix of nuts, to avoid harmful chemicals that are often used as preservatives in commercial packages. Just throw a bunch of mixed nuts on a shallow cookie tray and roast them for a few minutes in your convection toaster oven. You can experiment with flavors by adding anything you like, from salt to vanilla.
Pizza for breakfast
Warming up pizza was never easier than with your convection toaster oven. Usually, you end up getting a soggy piece left over from last night, with limp veggies and hard cheese. Your convection toaster oven will make that warmed up piece taste like it is freshly baked, with nicely melted cheese and wonderful, crunchy crust.
Save money on kids crayons
Crayons do not last long. Kids love them, but they break easily and their bits and pieces end up collecting dust in kids’ drawers and under the bed. Since they are made of wax, the broken bits can be easily melted in your convection oven, and re-made in any shape or size you like. Make appropriate forms out of sturdy aluminum foils and fill them with broken bits. Few minutes in your convection oven on 250 degrees and they will melt and fuse. Once cooled, let kids play with them until they are again in bits and pieces, and then start all over.
