What are the Toaster Oven Cooking Times?

    Make sure to calibrate the oven first!

 

The toaster oven cooking times are very different then conventional oven's cooking times because the conventional oven temperature varies plus or minus 25 degrees as with a toaster oven temperature varies plus or minus 5 degrees. You are more likely to burn your food in a conventional oven than a toaster oven.

Below is the formula I use when cooking in my Black and Decker toaster oven without the drip pan. I don't pre-heat the toaster oven before I cook. I just put my item to cook in the toaster oven and set the timer.

Here is my formula:
Oven Cooking Time on back of box X 1.5 = toaster oven cooking time (starting point)

Microwave Time on back of box X 8 X 1.5 =  toaster oven cooking time (starting point)

Add 20 to 30 minutes if you are using a metal bowl or metal pan.

Real Sample 1: Cake Mix half the height of a 8" x 8" in a aluminum pan, not using the cooking pan that came with the oven. From one cake mix, you will be able to make 2 - 8" x 8" x 2" cakes.
(350-375 degrees Fahrenheit)
30 mins x 1.5 = 45 minutes cooking time

Real Sample 2: Baking Cookies, using the cooking pan that came with the oven.
(350-375 degrees Fahrenheit)
12 mins x 1.5 = 18 minutes cooking time (I cooked this for 20 mins)

Real Sample 3: Frozen TV Dinner, using the cooking pan that came with the oven.
(400 degrees Fahrenheit)
45 mins x 1.5 = 67 minutes cooking time

Real Sample 4: Frozen Pumpkin Pie, not using the cooking pan that came with the oven.
(375 degrees Fahrenheit)
70 mins x 1.5 = 105 minutes cooking time (I cooked this for 1 hr 30 mins)

Real Sample 5: Frozen Oven Roasted Chicken Teriyaki Bowl, not using the cooking pan that came with the oven, putting everything from the paper bowl in a metal bowl, covered on top with aluminum foil. Use the paper bowl to push everything flat as possible on the metal bowl so it will fit in the oven.
(400 degrees Fahrenheit)
6.5 x 8 x 1.5 = 78 minutes cooking time (I cooked this for 1 hr 25 mins)

Real Sample 5: A medium size bake potato, not using the cooking pan that came with the oven. Wrap the potato in aluminum foil and put it in the middle of the oven.
(400 degrees Fahrenheit)
60 mins x 1.5 = 90 minutes cooking time (1 hr 36 mins)


YES! ALL these samples above I use everyday and every time I cook in my Black and Decker toaster oven.

The cake mix above I mix in a bowl and put half in one 8" x 8" aluminum pan and the other mix in other 8" x 8" aluminum pan. I weight the mix out to make sure it is even. While one cake is being cooked I put the other pan in the refrigerator.

 

Below is the same one I have. I have been using this model for over 2 years now. One thing you ALLWAYS need to remember is make sure when you use the timer that you hear the clicking sound, if not it will stead on all the time unless you turn it off. This happened to me a few times after after 2 years of using this oven. I did not burn anything but I did over cook some cookies.

When I say this: "not using the cooking pan that came with the oven". What I am taking about is the pan below that is sitting on top of the cooking rack and drip pan. I ONLY use this pan to cook cookies or put my TV dinner on it.

This is the BLACK+DECKER 4-Slice Toaster Oven with Natural Convection, Black, TO1750SB. It cost about $50.00 to $60.00
