Kitchen Must-Haves:


Toaster Oven

Toaster ovens are small electric ovens that have toast as well as bake functions. They have a front door that in most cases must be opened manually, a wire rack for toasting, and a removable baking tray. Most toaster ovens are larger than regular toasters but, although on a smaller scale, they can perform most of the functions of a full size oven. Most toaster ovens have built in timers but you should keep an eye on your food as it cooks. Since they are smaller they may cook food faster than conventional ovens. Keep toaster away from water while plugged in and remove each part to clean as needed. Clean the inside with a damp sponge or cloth. Never put the oven in water to clean. You should also avoid using an extension cord to plug in your toaster. Use appropriate protection when removing your food from the oven.


Cost to buy:

Toaster ovens come in various sizes and range in price from $20.00 to $100.00.


Where to find:

New toaster ovens can be found at any store that sells small kitchen appliances like Target or Walmart. They can also often be found used at thrift stores or garage sales for under $20.


Useful accessories:

Oven mitts or potholders.

Our Experience:
Sweet Tomatoes is a good, healthy alternative to traditional buffet style dining. The food was displayed in a colorful and appetizing manner. The different selections of food were clearly labeled and fresh. The atmosphere was awesome. The service was good and the staff was friendly. The hostess and cashier were helpful and knowledgeable. The restaurant was very clean (including the bathrooms) and accessible. The manager was very friendly. He came over and asked us how the food and service were. Overall our experience at Sweet Tomatoes was great.

The Food:
There were several types of tossed salads, including Garden, Spinach, BLT, and Caesar. They also had prepared salads like potato salad and macaroni salad. Other offerings on the salad buffet included baked potatoes, fresh fruit, yogurt, and bakery items. there was a wide selection of toppings for the salads and potatoes. Included with the meal is an all-you-can-eat soup bar with 2-3 different soups offered daily, pasta dishes, breads, ice cream and frozen yogurt with lots of yummy toppings, and brownies. We tried the BLT salad, the macaroni salad, the Caesar salad, the potato leek soup, and red potatoes. We also had a build-your-own salad with a variety of great toppings.

Our Rating:
Overall we give the restaurant a big 3-circle rating. We liked the food selection and the fact that it was very tasty and fresh. We really loved the style and colors. We feel it was worth the money. For those who have never been to Sweet Tomatoes, we recommend you to visit.
