I highly suggest toaster ovens and often recommend them to people. However, if you choose to get one, it’s essential to understand how to use it properly.

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.
