We are so excited about our Brylane 10-in-1 Toaster! My husband has been telling me that we need a toaster oven for over a year now, but I've been really resistant because I don't like having appliances that only have one function. In our last place it seemed like our entire counter space was taken up by toasters, panini makers, griddles, steamers, etc. When I came across this 10-in-1 toaster, it seemed like the perfect appliance for us. After using it for almost two weeks, I can't stop telling people how much we love it! We've tried almost every function already.
10 Functions of the Brylane Toaster:
One of the first things we noticed when we assembled this toaster is that the inside of the oven is much larger than typical toaster ovens, which makes it easy to fit in anything we want to cook. The first few days we tried the the toast, bake, and steam functions to prepare dinner. Our toasted tomato mozzarella bread appetizers and steamed fish with crispy potatoes were super easy to make, cooked evenly, and tasted delicious. Our evening snack of fresh baked chocolate chunk cookies made the house smell amazing. As an added bonus, we only had one appliance to clean.
We also tried baking a calzone in the toaster oven to see how it would compare to our regular oven. The calzone came out perfectly. Personally, I prefer using the toaster oven to the regular oven because it all seems so much easier and I can easily keep an eye on it as it cooks.
For the past two mornings my husband has been waking me up to a bacon and egg breakfast on the griddle. He finds the griddle portion of the toaster oven easy to use and especially easy to clean. As we get more comfortable with each function, we've become multi-taskers. He uses the warming function to warm up our buttermilk biscuits while he cooks the bacon and eggs. I love waking up to that!
Tonight we are in the process of roasting pork loin and steaming veggies. We typically use a crock pot for pork loin, so I'm really excited to see how it turns out. With all of the different features and functions of this toaster oven, it's helped us to spice up our dinners and try things we haven't tried in a while. Our meat is marinating in the refrigerator as we speak for kabobs later this week!
I always try to list the cons as well as the pros, but this toaster oven makes it difficult to find any cons. The only con I can come up with so far is the fact that making regular toast takes longer in the toaster oven than in our toaster. Overall, we absolutely love this 10-in-1 Toaster Oven and highly recommend it!
