Quiz time.  What is the drawer under your oven used for?  If you said to store cookie and baking sheets you'd be wrong.  Believe it or not, the handy little drawer is supposed to be used to keep food warm.  The warming drawer is designed to keep hot food hot while you get the rest of your dinner ready. Although it can keep freshly cooked food hot, it isn't designed to reheat or cook food and depending on the manufacturer, can actually control humidity levels, which may be great for warming bread.  As with any item that can be damaged due to heat, if you do use the bottom drawer for storage, make sure they are not made of paper, plastic or anything that can melt or catch fire.
