The toaster oven is a convenient appliance for those days when you don't need to prepare large portions of food, or you'd rather not heat up the entire kitchen with your oven. It is essentially a smaller, countertop version of your regular oven, albeit less powerful, making it ideal for cooking items at low to medium-high temperatures. The toaster oven works well for waffle fries, and most other types of fries, whether you pick up a bag of precooked frozen fries from the grocery store or make your own from scratch.
