Toaster oven incubator?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Has anyone done this successfully?  I found a toastmaster oven with a tray in the bottom for the water.  Has top burner and a wire rack for the eggs.  The door has a full width half inch gap to let air through.  Does it need some holes in the top for ventilation?   I can get humidity as high as seventy five percent.

Is it a model that has a bottom that drops out to dump crumbs, etc? If it is, the doors on those things aren't air tight and I think you would get natural convection ventilation. Have you been able to stabilize the temps?

After seeing the frying pan work, I would say yes you could.

I can regulate temperature.   This is a reversible broiler/toaster, is it best to have the burner above or below the eggs?  If the burner is below it will be heating the water tray first.

I would say below because heat rises. This is interesting. Keep us posted, and much luck.

Hey just wondering if this was successful. I'm thinking about trying it out with my toaster oven for my runner duck eggs smile.png
