Black and Decker 4 Slice vs Oster 6 Slice Convection Oven

Overall Verdict

The Black and Decker 4 Slice (TO1760SS) and the Oster 6 Slice Convection Oven (TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2) have an easy time of it. The comparison demonstrates the key differences between a small and a large toaster oven and explains why the latter typically prevails. The Oster may cost almost twice as much as the Black+Decker, but it offers more real value.

A convection system, an inside light, a slide-out crumb tray, and a digital control panel are all made possible by the Oster's bigger size. More cooking space also means it’s less prone to splashing grease and less of a mess to clean. The Black and Decker, in contrast, only features three analog control dials and a removable crumb tray for cleaning the inside.

Credits where credits due, the Black and Decker did slightly better than the Oster in toasting bread despite a lower power output. We figured the Oster’s cooking chamber was too large for its not-so-high power. However, while baking pizza, whole chickens, and fries, the Oster convection fan offered benefits in terms of getting the proper color and texture.
