Build Quality
Overall Design Scoring

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

The Ninja DT201 shows a high build quality in all of its design features from the exterior and interior to the included accessories. What stood out to us the most was the powerful convection system and the number of heating elements. We couldn’t confirm the accuracy of the Ninja’s claim that it had ‘up to ten times the convection power’ of a traditional full-size convection oven, though.

Usability Comparison

User Control
Ease of Use
Overall Usability Scoring

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.

The straightforward control panel on the Ninja DT201 allowed for easy adjusting and readjusting of the cooking settings. Moreover, the informative display combined with distinguished buttons removed all of the guesswork when it came to operating the oven.

The oven’s practical cooking functions shined all the more in combination with the 2-level even cooking feature. The oven’s interior could be improved with a coating for easier cleaning, though.

Overall Performance Scoring

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.

The Ninja DT201 performed differently on each of our tests but even at its worst, it still gave good results. We were most impressed with the oven’s ability to quickly reach and maintain its temperature despite the large cooking chamber. This could be attributed to the oven’s high power output, powerful convection system, and a total of 5 heating elements.

With these factors, you don’t even need to turn food during cooking, especially if you incorporate the air fryer basket. Interestingly, this was one of the few units where we felt increasing the food amounts would lead to even better results.

Both the Black+Decker CTO6335S and the Ninja Foodi XL Pro (DT201) are large digital convection toaster ovens. The differences between them are the reasons why the first one is our best budget choice while the second is our best large pick.

The CTO6335S scored above average in every aspect, with a low price to boot. On the other hand, the Foodi XL Pro has excellent scores in all departments. Although it’s true that the Ninja is priced three times more.

The DT201 has a larger capacity, more detailed digital display, more toggles switches, and more accessories. Moreover, the Ninja’s higher power output and more powerful convection allowed it to pull ahead in all of our tests, whether it’s toasting bread, roasting chicken, or air frying fries.

The two units’ results in baking pizza are quite even, but we have no doubt that the Ninja would have a higher score if the tested food was fresh pizza.
