    Has anyone ever made cornbread on the stove instead of the oven? I don't think I can get the toaster oven hot enough to bake it without burning either the top or the bottom.

    After waaaaaay too much math and discussion in another forum, the results are in. Using a plug in electric kettle is not only faster than a stove top kettle, but it uses a lot less power. So much, that it would save $14.52 per year.
