A good way to save on your energy bills is to use a toaster oven. If you're making a small pizza or you just want to bake a few cookies, you'll save a lot of time using this method as well since you don't have to wait for a full size oven to preheat. I also like to use a toaster oven to reheat a lot of my food because microwaves can make things soggy or, in the case of bread, stale. Toaster ovens also serve the function of a toaster, of course, so you don't need to own both. You can purchase a basic toaster oven at Target for about $30. Make sure to purchase one with a built-in timer and automatic shutoff or you will end up forgetting about and burning a lot of your food (I speak from experience!).
