All week long we’ve been giving away fantastic prizes on Kitchen Explorers.  The fun continues with today’s giveaway of an awesome West Bend Convection Toaster Oven.  I’ve been a big fan of toaster ovens ever since my husband and I were gifted one as a wedding present nearly twelve years ago.  From a practical standpoint I found it easy to use, and it took less energy compared to a regular oven to roast salmon filets or make a snack sized portions of garlic cheese bread.  After using it for ten years our poor appliance died, and it has been on my mind to replace ever since. 

One fortunate Kitchen Explorers reader will win this West Bend Convection Toaster Oven.  From reading about the features alone, I can tell you this is a much nicer appliance than the one we used to have.  I am very excited for one of you to win this!

      My favorite snack is homemade empanadas, I use already made pie crust, you use different fillings like fruit pie filling, hash brown potatoes ham and cheese or just be creative with left -over’s. YUM!

  1. Kay N.

    My most favorite snack is a scone that I have made and frozen….wonderful heated up!!

  2. Kelly Glupker

    I make a batch of cookie dough and keep it in the fridge and only bake what we plan to eat since we love our cookies fresh and warm. Once the kids are in bed I scoop out some dough and bake up a few cookies for my husband and I. It’s our favorite treat! And how awesome it would be to not have to heat up my whole oven to have it!
    Just today I posted on facebook that I was interested in purchasing one of these toaster ovens. How cool it would be if I won this one!

  3. Karly @ Three in Three

    I would have to say my newest favorite in the baked snack category is parmesan crusted zucchinis, which I made for the first time last week! They were healthy and absolutely addictively delicious!

  4. Susan Hummell

    My favorite oven baked snack is reheated pizza. Pizza isn’t the same if reheated in a microwave.

  5. Kat

    My favorite is pita with melted provolone – for some reason it’s the best combo.

  6. Doreen, Houston, MN

    Pecan sticky rolls (actually, any bread/pastry item, since I am definitely a “carb-aholic!!!).

  7. Barb C.

    My favorite oven baked snack is carmel corn that I enjoy making with my mother and my 3 daughters!!!!

  8. carol

    hmm – probably cheese toast or pizza for the kids! I love that you can do small things without heating up the house with the oven and ours is old and yucky!

  9. Amy S.

    I love anything that comes out of my oven. It’s my most used kitchen appliance. Cookies, cakes, brownies….I love them all!

  10. sharon k.

    Just call me Cookie Monster! (My fav is chocolate chip)

  11. Carl

    My beagle, Kirby, loves his homemade pumpkin cranberry dog biscuits. Woof!

  12. Alison

    I like to use my toaster oven to make mini pita pizzas… but my toaster oven is old so I could really use a new one!

  13. Lisa

    cakes & toast, nothing like buttered bread toasted in an oven..a perfect baking machine!

  14. Sara

    We love breadsticks or mini pizzas. But we rarely make them since I don’t have a toaster oven, and using the large oven for a snack is a special treat.

  15. Susan

    Brussels sprouts! No kidding! With a little olive oil and sea salt… mmmmm….

  16. Nancy

    My favorite pizza, the day after! Leftovers in a toaster oven are the best!

  17. Joy

    Sliced delicata squash tossed with a little olive oil, maple syrup, salt and Spanish smoked paprika. Broiled until one side is crisp – sweet, smoky squash chips!

    My favorite is potato skins with melty cheese and herbs 🙂

  19. Glen

    My favorite snack is Pizza. Also my favorite lunch and dinner. Ok, and breakfast 🙂

  20. Michele

    Ever since I was little, I’ve enjoyed the simple pleasure of cheese melted on crackers straight from the oven (with just a little bit of brown on the cheese). Yum.

  21. kym

    Our favorite baked snacks are mommy’s special cupcakes. I use a mixture of several fruits and colors and the kids go crazy over them without realizing they are actually a bit healthier than other cupcakes!!

  22. Charmaine Keel-Brown

    im torn between cookies and cheese sticks.

  23. Jenn Weir

    Favorite? Pizza. The one I don’t feel guilty chowing on? Kale chips.

  25. Julie

    Sliced french loaf topped with a cream cheese and scallion blend, ham, and cheddar. Out of the oven, place a snow pea. Enjoy!

  26. Amy HH

    I don’t have a favorite, that would be too difficult. We love fruit crisps (I make them with a nut topping rather than oatmeal). Cookies are a staple in the house (my 5 year old’s latest creation: walnuts, craisins, raisins, oatmeal, and chocolate chips in a chocolate cookie). Chocolate caramel bars are way up there too.

  27. celeste

    My favorite baked item is home made croutons. they just always taste way better than the store bought ones.

  28. Dianne Wilkie

    toasted cheese and tomatoe open face sandwiches

    Oh I would SO love this I wore my last one out when that’s all I had to bake with for about a year!! Everything you can make in a big oven can be made in one of these! Our favorite I think tho would be home made cinnamon rolls!!

  36. JoAnn

    A toaster oven saves energy when you are baking something small like 1 baked potato.

  37. Monica

    Currently, my favorite oven baked snack is kale chips!!

  38. Terri Boos

    We take left over fajitia shells, drizzle olive oil on them & sprinkle with parmesean cheese. Heat in toaster oven & you have yummy crispy chips for dip!

    We love to cook with our toaster oven and are in need of a new one! Some of our regular toaster oven favorites are bagels, veggie corn dogs, and mini pizzas on English muffins so everyone can customize their own toppings!

    We love to make quesadillas and homemade tortilla chips in the oven or toaster oven. Crispy with little to no oil!

    My childhood memories are of using the toaster oven to make tuna melts. We don’t currently have a toaster oven but that’s what I would make along with provolone cheese melted over bagels.

  49. Jen LF

    Healthy = kale chips
    Indulgent = the old standby, chocolate chip cookies
