i am intending to get a used toaster oven as would not be using for cooking and poison myself...haha...

not looking for perfect answer but to get some sensing...thank you
just buy the cheapo oven toaster. It's more that enough to do the job. Just make sure your piece can fit right in. If your sculpt is large scale, obviously you need to bake it in pieces.

I see a lot of you guys asking about super sculpey being toxic. Can you bake sculpts in the same oven that you cook in. Obviously not at the same time though

Yes you can but Sculpey does release chemicals which are known to irritate skin. Many of us who've used it for years get itchy hands after prolonged use.
I put my sculpts in oven roasting bags to bake them. They're clear plastic bags that don't melt and will contain the chemicals. You can find them in the grocery store.
