Black+Decker CTO6335S vs Ninja Foodi XL Pro Toaster Oven Side-by-Side Comparison

Black+Decker CTO6335S vs Ninja Foodi XL Pro Toaster Oven

Overall Verdict

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.
