The battle between the Breville Mini Smart BOV450XL and Ninja Foodi XL Pro DT201 showed that even the best small toaster oven doesn’t stand a chance against the best large model.

These two toaster ovens don’t differ much in terms of build quality. However, the small Breville lacks too many features, especially interior-wise, compared to the large Ninja. As a result, the Ninja far surpasses the Breville regarding design and usability.

The same can be said about their cooking performance. When it comes to roasting a whole chicken, the benefits of having a strong convection system pulled the Ninja way ahead. The Ninja further solidifies its victory with its air fryer basket for air-frying fries compared to the Breville baking fries in a sheet pan.

The Breville managed to barely keep up with the Ninja in the toast test—both having the top tier score of around 8/10. These results can be contributed to both toaster ovens having the same power output. Most toaster ovens don’t deploy convection when toasting, including the Ninja, so the machine doesn’t get the benefit of said feature.

Although both units are digital, the Ninja displays much more detailed information, and its additional features actually improve ease of use, unlike the Breville. Credits where credits due, the Breville is slightly easier to clean thanks to its non-stick interior.
