    Physics. A toaster oven has to heat a lot of air around the bread. In a "real" toaster the bread is much closer to the heating elements and gets the bread hotter sooner. That's why someone who loves toast is unlikely to be happy with toast from an oven.

    Well, that saves me a research project and some counter space :-)

    Your wise advice on the toaster oven and slow cooker are much appreciated!

    I've always preferred the texture of dried beans, reconstituted and cooked (slow cooker or otherwise). Much better than canned or frozen IMHO.

    Today I am on my 4th crockpot of tomatoes, cooking them down into pasta sauce. The thing is reall really handy for that.

    It has been a good year for tomatoes.

    I have sausage-kale soup cooking in the IP. I think total cooking time was about 25 minutes.

    I make my homemade spaghetti sauce in the crockpot and it always turns out perfect.
