In this regard, is baking in a toaster oven the same as a regular oven?

The short answer is yes! A toaster oven can replace a regular oven. In fact, when it comes to weighing the distinctions between a toaster and a regular oven, it is all about the fan. Unlike a regular oven, a toaster oven retails with a fan that circulates heat, making the temperature inside more even.

Also Know, how fast do toaster ovens heat up? There you have it! An average toaster oven takes around 5-6 minutes to preheat to 450°F (232°C) while a larger one like the Cuisinart takes only slightly longer. In most cases, expect a preheat time of close to 5 minutes.
