Cuisinart Toaster Oven

Large toaster ovens with good value


A Cuisinart toaster oven is a nice option if you are looking for good value for the money. Cuisinart makes four models that passed our screening tests. All of them are large toaster ovens (they hold a 12" pizza). Let's look at them in more detail.

Cuisinart TOB-155 Toaster Oven

This is a 1500 watt, 6 slice toaster oven with 0.6 cubic foot capacity. Exterior dimensions are 17-3/4" wide, 16" deep, and 9-5/8" high.

This oven is not a convection oven. If you want a Cuisinart convection toaster oven, see the other models on this page.

It has electronic touchpad controls, which are located conveniently just below the door. However, the usability of the controls is not as good as some manual controls. One person noted that you have to use 4 different buttons to toast a piece of frozen bread.

The crumb tray is also inconveniently located in the back of the toaster oven. You have to move the oven to remove the tray.

Cuisinart TOB-195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven Broiler

This Cuisinart toaster oven is like the TOB-155 model, except that it uses convection. There is a small price difference between the two models, making this oven the preferred model.

Like the TOB-155, the TOB-195 has the same exterior and interior dimensions. The controls are very similar, too.

Cuisinart Convection/Broiler Toaster Oven

This oven is slightly smaller than the other two, but has the same interior capacity.

Toaster oven reviews indicate this model has intuitive controls and accurate temperature inside the oven. Overall, it seems to be a good option.

Cuisinart BRK-200 Brick Oven Deluxe

This is the most expensive model of Cuisinart toaster oven that passed our screening tests. You should read a few reviews for yourself and check the ratings for the latest information. Some reviews indicated problems, but there wasn't enough information to rule out this oven.

At 1700 watts and able to go to 500 F, this oven is larger than the others. It has a removable baking stone and 2 wire racks for multi-level cooking.

Unlike the other models, this one has an oven light for viewing the interior.

Overall, the Cuisinart TOB-195 convection toaster oven seems to be the best buy for the money.
