Take a look at this bakeware. Looks pretty normal, pretty straightforward, yes? Well, it's actually mini bakeware, designed for your toaster oven. And that's a good idea right now, given this ridiculous heat throughout much of the country. Why heat up your oven when you can make muffins in your toaster oven?
We had never seen toaster oven bakeware until we spotted this set at Crate & Barrel. (We're pretty sure that it's made by Chicago Metallic, as it looks just like this branded set.) We love the smaller size of the muffin pan, and the very classy cake pan.
Your toaster oven is such a great tool when it's hot outside like this. You can bake a little cake, or a batch of muffins or cookies, without overheating the kitchen. And if you rely on your toaster oven a lot, then some good-quality toaster oven-sized bakeware might be a worthwhile investment.
