Cuisinart TOA60 Toaster & Toaster Oven Review

We preheated all of the toaster ovens to 450°F or 500°F, depending on the temperature range available. We only kept the garlic bread in the toaster ovens until the optimal color and texture were achieved. The broiling time ranged from one minute to two minutes and 30 seconds. The Cuisinart toaster oven also employs many features that promote cuisinart air fryer oven a positive user experience. The buttons are easy to press and allow you to choose which aspect of cooking you want to control, including shade, temperature, and timer. The selector is a dial that is easy to turn and highlights the buttons below if they’re available for your selected function allowing you to adjust values quickly.

By omitting this feature, they made it more difficult for us to set accurate times and temperatures. The Cuisinart doesn’t have the Breville’s sleek curves, and it’s actually a bit bigger than the Breville, so this isn’t the toaster oven for a small kitchen with limited counter space. It has the same 1800 wattage and capacity, easily accommodating a 13-inch pizza, a standard cupcake tin or six pieces of toast. Even before cooking anything, the Breville was stunning just to look at. The brushed stainless steel gave it a sharp, sleek look that made all of its competitors pale in comparison aesthetically.

Also great is the Cuisinart – TOB-260N1 Chef’s Convection, which is almost identical to the Breville in features and performance, but it’s about one-third less expensive. We evaluated how easy it was to set up and use and how convenient it was to clean. We also looked at what customers who bought it have to say and compared it to other popular air fryers, ovens and Cuisinart products. This Cuisinart TOA-60 Air Fryer Toaster Oven offers seven functions, including air frying, broiling, toasting and oven cooking. Made to rival even the best toaster ovens, this is pretty impressive considering its neat compact size, a feature that makes it ideal if you’ve got a small kitchen.

You can also buy replacement oven racks, air fryer baskets and baking trays from the Cuisinart website. Over the next few days, we air fried hand-cut French fries and roast potatoes, which were golden brown, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Theoretically the air basket and baking tray combination allows air to circulate right around the food, so there’s no need to toss halfway through. However, we did find that a quick toss midway through cooking helped to brown food more evenly. In all settings, the oven timer will ring out to indicate an end to the cooking time, and the Air Fryer Mini Oven will stop cooking your food.

The instruction book has recipes and helpful charts for successful air frying and dehydrating. Two handles at the base of the oven allow for easy lifting, while the glass door lets you keep a careful eye on your food during cooking. A pull-out crumb tray at the base of the oven is easy to miss unless you check the manual. Inside is an oven rack, baking tray and airfryer basket, all stainless steel.
