Build Quality
Overall Design Scoring

Where the Cuisinart TOA-60 Air Fryer Toaster Oven shines most is in its simplistic design. Even though it only offers a few features, it does them all justice.

The oven features a powerful top-mounted convection fan and six nichrome heating elements, all powered with 1800 W. From our understanding, these two are the main factors behind the oven’s excellent performance.

The Black+Decker CTO6335S has a sturdy construction. Standouts for us were the baking pan plus broiling rack combo and the quartz heating elements.

Usability Comparison

User Control
Ease of Use
Overall Usability Scoring

Due to its simplistic approach, the Cuisinart TOA-60 Air Fryer Toaster Oven doesn’t offer many usability features. However, it also doesn’t pose any problems.

For example, the oven lacks the automatic features and the ability to precisely adjust time and temperature that most digital units otherwise have. Nonetheless, its cooking performance is more than worth these minor inconveniences.

The Black+Decker CTO6335S has an easy-to-use control panel. However, it doesn’t have any features that encompass convenience. Even the automatic preheat feature isn’t very useful. In addition, its door and buttons are a bit dodgy.

Overall Performance Scoring

All of the Cuisinart TOA-60 Convection Toaster Oven Air Fryer’s results are in the top tier among our collected data. A big win for the oven’s performance is its steady and stable temperature. Combined with the fact that the convection fan is always deployed, it consistently produced excellent test dishes. Even though it doesn’t have a rotisserie kit for our Whole Roasted Chicken test, it still performed in a splendid manner.

The Black+Decker CTO6335S performed quite well in most of our test dishes except for the baked french fries. We speculated that 1500 W wasn’t able to heat the elements fast enough to keep up with the oven’s large capacity.

While the Black+Decker CTO6335S did well in our performance tests, it suffered defeat against the consistently excellent results of the Cuisinart TOA-60. Looking at the results in the baking french fries test, it’s only more evident that 1500 W wasn’t enough to power the heating elements to accommodate the Black+Decker’s large capacity.

Despite both having a convection system, not only is the Cuisinart’s stronger but it also uses a higher 1800 Watts of power. The four quartz heating elements of the Black+Decker weren’t able to help in this battle against the more common 6 nichrome ones of the Cuisinart.

The Cuisinart’s straightforward and simplistic construction highlights the investment in an excellent design and extremely durable material. The Black+Decker edges out a bit in the exterior department with its tamper-resistant casing and an LCD display with an automatic preheat feature.

However, the outer shell of the Cuisinart doesn’t get as hot as quickly as the Black+Decker’s. Moreover, the 100% analog control of the Cuisinart is way more reliable in terms of responsiveness and more intuitive to use.

Besides the standard baking pan and rack, the Black+Decker further has a broiling rack while the Cuisinart comes with an air fryer basket. Both have a slide-out crumb tray and not much to offer in terms of usability.

The Black+Decker CTO6335S is still a good budget large countertop convection toaster oven for beginner and seasoned home cooks. Meanwhile, the Cuisinart TOA-60 is our definitive choice for the best medium-sized countertop convection toaster oven.
