Breville BOV450XL vs Toshiba AC25CEW-BS Toaster Oven

Overall Verdict

Although the Breville BOV450XL Mini Smart Toaster Oven was our best small unit, it just paled in comparison to the Toshiba AC25CEW-BS Toaster Oven—our best value unit. It doesn’t help the Breville that it has a higher price but a smaller size and less practical features than the Toshiba.

Interestingly, the Breville actually did better in toasting bread and baking french fries, both of which required the maxim 450°F, thanks to its higher power draw of 1800 W. However, the deciding differences lay in the Toshiba’s ability to excel at baking pizza thanks to the oven's nichrome heating elements and a convection system. Moreover, its rotisserie kit helped the Toshiba an extra edge in roasting whole chickens.

Both units have similar levels of build quality, but the Breville stands out slightly with its non-stick interior coating that makes cleaning easier than the Toshiba. They both have straightforward user control and not any note-worthy convenience features.

The Toshiba, overall, offers more value all aspects, including performance, design, and usability. Nonetheless, the Breville is still a decent unit that takes up little space in your kitchen.
