Can I Put Parchment Paper or Glass in a Toaster Oven?

I love toaster ovens and advocate their use often, but if you do choose to get one, make sure you know how to use it. A toaster oven — unlike a microwave — uses heating coils, so if you’re not careful, it might turn into a fire hazard.

Two biggest questions I get are:

Can I put parchment paper in a toaster oven?

I strongly recommend against using parchment or wax paper. Parchment paper is a fire hazard even in ovens, and more so with toaster ovens because the heating elements are closer to the food.

Instead, use a non-hazardous mat like a Silpat. If you don’t want one, use aluminum foil (cautiously).

Can you put a glass dish in toaster oven? Can Pyrex go in a toaster oven?

Actually, the majority of manufacturers specifically prohibit the use of glassware — even Pyrex — because they explode. Use stoneware or metal bakeware instead.

Hope this was helpful!

Love,

G.
