Apparently inspired by BBC’s The Young Ones, Instructables user lemonie put together a tutorial on how to make your own VHS toaster oven. He includes the following amusing note about safety:

If I thought anyone would attempt this (and they shouldn’t) I’d offer the following warnings:
Ensure the metal parts are earthed (I did)
Do not place it on heat-sensitive surfaces.
Do not place heat-sensitive materials on top of it.
Take care not to touch any hot surfaces.
Do not leave the machine unattended.
