Hi, I am Chef Zara. In this post, I will guide you through the best Toaster Oven Cookbooks.

I love discovering new food and cooking with friends and family. One of the most common questions that I often get is for cookbook recommendations. I have created this guide for friends, family, and new friends alike. I hope that you enjoy our site.

Everyone should have one!

Initially, the toaster oven was designed to supplement the conventional oven, but on a much smaller and more efficient scale. It is full of little buttons and nobs that let you toast, bake, broil, and warm. It comes with an easy-to-clean, side-out tray; it fits conveniently on your countertop right next to your coffee maker and will preheat in a fraction of the time of your conventional oven. It is the perfect solution for those coming home after a long day of work and who are just looking for something easy that will get their food ready quickly and not require extensive clean-up afterward. This compact gem will still reheat your pizza, cook up a hot dog, and of course, toast your toast; however, as is demonstrated in the following cookbooks, it continues to do much more, and it remains a must-have in any kitchen. 

Check out our top 10 Toaster Oven Cookbooks!


1. 101 Things to Do with a Toaster Oven

Why We Love It ❀️ 

The throwback design of this toaster oven cookbook harkens back to the early days of the toaster oven and bringing on a wonderful sense of nostalgia in the process. In addition to the aesthetics, the author, Donna Kelly, makes sure to include a wide variety of vegetarian options for those looking to avoid meat, pork, and chicken.

What the Readers Are Saying πŸ‘‚

“Just what I needed. Easy to follow and good recipes. I now love my toaster oven” -Don Campbell

Review πŸ“–

This toaster oven cookbook is bare-bones in its presentation, and we are fine with that. Kelly does a wonderful job of keeping things simple without all the bells and whistles, which many readers who are not looking to be overwhelmed will find very appealing. The recipes consist of an essential ingredients list and easy-to-follow directions designed to help you achieve a delicious meal in a snap. With side dishes like Chicken enchilada stacks, heavenly halibut, and baked chicken curry, you’ll feel like you’re a worldly chef.  


2. Cooking with the Oster Countertop Toaster Oven, A Quick-Start Cookbook

Why We Love It ❀️ 

Tara Adams not only provides a tutorial on the best practices in the care and operation of the Oster Countertop toaster Oven, but she also goes a bit deeper into the health benefits of preparing healthy meals (check out our guide on the Best Healthy Asian Cookbooks) with the ease of toaster oven cooking. 

What the Readers Are Saying πŸ‘‚

“This had all the recipe I was looking for.” -Gladys

Review πŸ“–

With 101 recipes, pro tips, and illustrated instructions, Tara Adams takes meal prep to a new level. In her toaster oven cookbook, Adams demonstrates that anyone can use a toaster oven to do more than just toast by including a wide array of delicious recipes from avocado and poached spinach eggs, to balsamic roasted chicken, to pesto and white wine salmon! Honestly, have you ever considered white wine salmon in a toaster oven? Tara has.


3. Hamilton Beach Toaster Oven Cookbook for Beginners

Why We Love It ❀️ 

Jenny Frank’s toaster oven cookbook provides all of the basics to put together some very flavorful dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but Frank has also taken into account the vegetarian and vegan (check out our guide on the Best Southern Vegan Cookbooks) community with a long list of culinary options. 

What the Readers Are Saying πŸ‘‚

“This book has given me a new appreciation for my toaster oven!” –Heather 

Review πŸ“–

As the title states, this is a cookbook for beginners, but that doesn’t mean that the recipes are overly bland and basic. Of course, we know about using a toaster oven for those simple and quick snacks like Pepperoni roll-ups, hot dogs, and french fries, but we had not considered the elaborate broiled flank steak with herb oil, classic rack of lamb, and even vegan yogurt cornbread, yet those unique offerings and many more are available here in Jenny Frank’s toaster oven cookbook. Jenny also provides more basic instructional advice about cleaning, safety tips, and rationale as to why the Hamilton Beach Toaster Oven is a step above the rest. 


4. Pop It in the Toaster Oven

Why We Love It ❀️ 

This may be one of the most comprehensive and educational toaster oven cookbooks on the market today! Lois does not miss a beat in her presentation and delivery of some of the yummiest dishes.

What the Readers Are Saying πŸ‘‚

“Cooking in a toaster oven is the bomb, especially when you’re pressed for time and you don’t want to mess up your kitchen; this book was a must”-Amazon Customer

Review πŸ“–

What’s not to say about this toaster oven cookbook? Lois Dewitt has created an incredible work of tasty toaster oven recipes prepared most easily and conveniently that will make you consider tossing your convection out the window. She also goes into depth with a complete tutorial on the toaster oven itself, the history, the slew of options, and even the proper utensils for this little gem.

Looking for those little ways to cut down on fat and sugar intake and create dishes with a healthier mindset? This fantastic toaster oven cookbook also includes a “replace with” section that provides you with replacement options for everything from butter and sugar to bacon and ground beef!


5. Toaster Oven Takeover

What the Readers Are SayingπŸ‘‚

“I’ve had my toaster oven for a while but wanted to branch out with more meals made in it. This cookbook fits the bill perfectly.”-Linda

Review πŸ“–

If you are looking for easy and delicious, then you’ve come to the right place. Wyss and Moore have put together a toaster oven cookbook for those looking to create great-tasting meals in a short amount of time with little mess and clean-up required. Start off easy with buttered poppy seed bread and work your way up to cheesy chicken-stuffed shells. Time for dessert; a serving of German chocolate cake (check out our guide on the Best Scone Cookbooks), perhaps? It’s up to you! All recipes are laid out in a clear and easy-to-grasp manner, providing you the guidance necessary to create your very own culinary masterpiece. 


6. BLACK+DECKER Toast Oven Cookbook for Beginners

Why We Love It ❀️ 

While many toaster oven cookbooks have a decent number of recipes, Sandy Crawford’s book has 800! 

What the Readers Are Saying πŸ‘‚

 “I liked this recipe book to be used for cooking tips in a toaster oven. There were very good ideas” -Penny

Review πŸ“–

Sandy Crawford has gone above and beyond here with this toaster oven cookbook. Besides the detailed tutorial on the toaster oven itself, how it works, tips, and matters that need attention, she follows with not 100 recipes; not 200 recipes, not even 300 recipes. Sandy Crawford has put together a remarkable 800 recipes for your dining pleasure! From cinnamon rolls and bagels to more complex dishes like oat and walnut salmon and turkey tetrazzini with mushrooms, this cookbook does not disappoint. And, of course, don’t forget the bread pudding and cinnamon oatmeal cookies!  


7. Hamilton Beach Convection Countertop Toaster Oven Cookbook

Why We Love It ❀️ 

This toaster oven cookbook does an excellent job of providing a wide variety of exciting and easy-to-make recipes. It also gives you basic instructional advice and all you need to know regarding the best settings, proper care, and cleaning of your Hamilton Beach product. 

What the Readers Are Saying πŸ‘‚

“This book has some great recipes” Loretta L.

If you want to whip something up on the quick that is both easy to prepare and healthy, then this toaster oven cookbook is for you. The recipes are laid out clearly and concisely, making it easy to get things moving on your way to a fabulous meal in 30-minutes or less.

8. Toaster Oven Perfection

Why We Love It ❀️ 

What’s not to love about America’s Test Kitchen? (check out our guide on the Best America’s Test Kitchen Cookbooks) Year after year, they have proven to be an authority in the product testing space and have now continued that excellence with this toaster oven cookbook.

What the Readers Are Saying πŸ‘‚

“The recipes are so easy to make and just enough for two servings. Love all the ideas it has given me.”-Renee N.

Review πŸ“–

With this being a very helpful book by America’s Test Kitchen, you can expect a masterclass in every toaster oven, and that’s precisely what they provide. But in addition to detailing all the possibilities of this countertop workhorse, including the anatomy of the toaster oven and extensive, side-by-side testing of all the top brands, they provide you with fantastic recipes for any occasion, morning, noon, or night. From their sheet pan meals with eggs, toast, biscuits, sausage, and potatoes to their Roasted boneless short rib, roasted chicken breasts, spice-crusted sirloin steak, and no broil baked ziti, the magicians at ATK deliver. 


9. Black+Decker Toaster Oven Cookbook 2021

Why We Love It ❀️ 

Breakfast, meats, poultry, fish, and seafood entrees-what more can you ask for? Okay, how about bread and soups? Not enough for you? What about a plethora of yummy desserts? (check out our guide on the Best Italian Dessert Cookbooks) It’s all here for you!

What the Readers Are Saying πŸ‘‚

“Straightforward directions and some yummy main dishes. This toaster oven took the place of the regular oven for me.”-Amalois

Review πŸ“–

It is clear that Rachael Gerbert is dedicated to the finer points and is passionate about her toaster oven cookbook. Not only does she rave about her Black and Decker toaster oven, its many features; its convenience of it; the ease of cleaning, but she has also created and developed some of the tastiest recipes as well. From Dijon Rosemary chicken breasts minted balsamic lamb chops to lemon torte with cream cheese frosting for dessert, Gerbert has left no stone unturned. This toaster oven cookbook will be an excellent addition to your kitchen!


10. 150 Best Toaster Oven Recipes 

Why We Love It ❀️ 

We love just how Linda Stephen draws upon her years as both a professional chef and culinary school owner to create 150 recipes that are not only easy to make but also will satisfy even the most demanding food critic. 

What the Readers Are Saying πŸ‘‚

“Wide-ranging recipes allow the space and energy saving toaster oven to be used for so much more than just toasting.”-Makeup Junkie

Review πŸ“–

This is a time when we must think of quality over quantity. Even though professional chef Linda Stephen’s toaster oven cookbook may not offer as many recipes as other cookbooks on this list, it is the quality of her best recipes that puts her over the top. Linda does not see the toaster oven as a gimmick item sitting next to the coffee maker; she equates it to the very professional oven that she’s prepared high-end dishes in for years, and so she treats it as such. Whether it is the quick and easy items like deli tuna melts or BBQ meatballs or a delicacy like Salmon on Satay, Linda doesn’t hesitate to give her big convection oven the night off in favor of her handy toaster oven. 


Final thoughts

The toaster oven has been a mainstay on the countertops of many a home for decades. Even though this little invention started as a limited supplement to the conventional oven, it has progressed to become something of a necessity for its tiny stature, capabilities, and convenience. It is not overly complicated. These toaster oven cookbooks have demonstrated that these small appliances can kick out many of the same tasty dishes as any conventional oven. They do so more quickly and efficiently, making life that much easier for those just coming home from a long-days haul and who are on the hunt for something quick without all the mess. There are many cookbooks about toaster ovens written by Asian and American magazines (check out our guide on the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook); due to the popularity of this electrical appliance, we hope you have found the Toaster Oven cookbook that fits what you need.
