I hate having a *garage* or driveway full of appliances on the countertop.....
We use a toaster oven for toasting and just reheating of some stuff.
I have a large fancy Panasonic microwave that sits in the garage as I don't use it much.
Man, do I miss having a ~toaster~ though. There is just a extra toast level a good toaster does for breads and bagels that a toaster oven won't do it for me.
