Really fast and delicious (and bad for you, full of carbs and fat).
To flip it, place a plate upside down over the pan. Flip the two of them while holding the plate securely against the pan. Lift the pan off the plate, then slide the potatoes from the plate back into the pan.

Gimp, it's time for soft tofu and egg custards.

Take some soft tofu, simmer it in a little dashi, then add a little tamari soy sauce and mirin.

Beat some flavorful broth into eggs (maybe one cup of broth for two eggs), then put in a cup, cover with foil, and steam for 15 minutes or so.

CM had a terrific cheese department, but what we really miss is Antonelli's.

SY,

I need to get out more with the wife. I checked out their website. I'll put it down as a 'must visit' for the two of us.

Heading off to get my first good toaster oven. The others in the past have been such a disappoinment so I'm ready to bite the bullet and go for it. They have a super deal on at a local store right now so...

See ya.

I have never understood this toaster-oven terminology!

Don't you guys have built-in double ovens / grills?

OK, so I've had a hour to play with this unit. I must say it's rather impressive. I like the ceramic elements, the convection is quiet, the preheat is fast. The temperature is stabilized by a built in 'rheostat' so it's about as stable as is possible.

I'm getting a better idea of why I wanted to go this route.
