An under-cabinet heat guard, as it sounds, is for mounting a toaster oven underneath a kitchen cabinet just like you might a microwave. For simply placing a toaster oven inside a wooden cabinet, unless the shelf above the toaster oven was extremely close to the top of the toaster oven you don't need a heat shield.

Also know, can you put a toaster oven under a cabinet?

The toaster oven should not be used in a cabinet or cupboard. It needs plenty of air flow and it gets very hot. Put it on the counter.

Likewise, what do you put under a toaster oven? Non Slip Insulated Counter Mat. Non slip counter mat is a favorite from the past, only new and improved. Insulated counter mat protects your expensive countertop and table from hot dishes, and is perfect as a heat-resistant liner underneath your toaster oven, griddle or deep fryer.

People also ask, can you put a toaster oven on a shelf?

Unlike a microwave, the housing of the toaster oven usually gets quite hot and that heat needs to dissipate. If it's mounted too close to the shelf above or to the sides, you do run the real risk of starting a fire. If the toaster is to be used inside that cabinet, dont do it.

Can you put a convection oven in a cabinet?

Convection Cooking In traditional ovens, warm air simply radiates from the top or bottom of the unit toward the food. Other convection ovens contain two heating elements, one at the top of a unit and one at the bottom. No true under-cabinet convection ovens exist.

Where do you store a toaster?

The toaster is regularly used, so it is important to know where to put it in the kitchen. The most convenient spot for it to be placed should be near the range of users. For many people, the perfect place is where the coffee ingredients are located. For some, it can be where the bread and jam are accessible.

Is wood a heat resistant surface?

Truth: Wood is very heat resistant. In fact, engineered stone is much less heat resistant than wood. Solid-surface countertops are not heat resistant at all, and manufacturers warn against setting anything hot on the surface, as it will melt.

The outside of the oven does get very hot. The handle, not so much. It does not heat up the space around it, just become warm to the touch (similar to how the top of a toaster oven would be hot).

Do I need a toaster oven?

If you don't have a lot of counter space, or you'll only be using your toaster oven for making toast and reheating individual portions of leftovers, a small toaster oven is all you'll need. Basic toaster ovens that are on the smaller size are usually economical so even the higher-priced options aren't too high.
