Which is better? A toaster oven or a toaster?

Let’s try that again: which do you use more often? A toaster oven or a toaster?

For the vast majority of us normal people out there, the answer to the question above is short and clear: a toaster.

Yes — and that is precisely why most people end up not using them nearly as often as they use toasters.

A toaster is designed to perform a single task.  It is easy (straightforward) to operate.  And in most cases, it comes with only one (or two, at most) nob for operation.  A toaster oven, on the other hand, tries to do too much.
