Black+Decker CTO6335S vs Hamilton Beach 31127D Toaster Oven

Overall Verdict

The Black+Decker CTO6335S and the Hamilton Beach 31127D went back and forth throughout our performance tests with the former getting a narrow victory. The Black+Decker scored lower on toasting bread then made a comeback baking pizza and fries. A decisive blow, however, was dealt in the chicken-roasting test.

The Black+Decker has a power rating of 1500 W and four quartz heating elements. That isn’t very different from the Hamilton’s 1400 W and four nichrome heating elements. While the Hamilton may run at a steadier temperature, helping it perform better at toasting, it lacks its counterpart’s convection system that improves heat distribution.

Design-wise, the Hamilton uses durable stainless steel and has a neat roll-top door but the Black+Decker edges it out with its tamper-resistant exterior and a slide-out crumb tray. Its extra cooking functions are also more useful to beginner cooks. The Hamilton does have a useful stay-on feature that we thought was worth a few points.

Choose the Black+Decker CTO6335S if you want a large convection toaster oven that won’t cost an arm and a leg. If you don’t need the size, though, the sturdy, medium-sized Hamilton Beach 31127D is also inexpensive.
