Build Quality
Overall Design Scoring

While being compact, the Comfee CFO-BB101 has a good capacity compared to the similar-sized Hamilton Beach 31401. Moreover, it still has all the standard exterior features, plus a neat detachable crumb tray. However, it’s very lacking in terms of the interior even though it uses quartz heating elements. Its overall construction also leaves a lot to be desired.

The Toshiba Toaster Oven AC25CEW is light, sturdy, and boasts a good design that encompasses its accessories. Features that stand out for us are its many ventilation holes, sturdy stands, and lightweight structure.

Usability Comparison

User Control
Ease of Use
Overall Usability Scoring

The Comfee CFO-BB101 doesn’t have anything strong going for it in terms of usability. The simple control has some drawbacks and doesn’t provide much convenience. However, a detachable crumb tray makes it easier to clean the oven, especially if the oven is of this size.

The Toshiba AC25CEW Toaster Oven isn’t difficult to use but it’s not particularly convenient either. The accessories show signs of attention to detail but not so much the user interaction.

Overall Performance Scoring

The Comfee CFO-BB101 has only two heating elements, and this often resulted in uneven coloring on our test dishes. Our speculation was that the low power output hinders the oven’s performance in test dishes that require a high temperature (> 400°F), including pizza and fries. One solution could be to decrease the amount of food compared to what we used for our test amount.

In addition, it was hard to input an exact temperature and time due to the limited settings on the control knob, especially for making toast. A small unit that doesn’t have temperature and control problems is the Breville BOV450XL.

The Toshiba Toaster Oven AC25CEW did well in all of our performance tests, mainly thanks to its convection system. It also got plus points for the convenient accessories, putting it above many of the same-sized units, e.g., the Hamilton Beach 31127D.

We thought its results in toasting bread, roasting a whole chicken, and baking french fries could have been better with a higher power output though. Surprisingly, it was excellent at baking pizza despite its 1500 W of power.

The COMFEE CFO-BB101 Compact Toaster Oven simply paled in comparison to the Toshiba AC25CEW-BS Digital Convection Toaster Oven. The former costs only around half as much, but is also only about half as large and scores only about half as high as the latter.

On our tests, the Toshiba was better at making all the foods including toast, pizza, a whole chicken, and french fries. The reasons could be contributed to the Toshiba having a convection system, more heating elements, and most of all, a higher power draw.

The Comfee not only lack the features above but also has a lower build quality shown in its thin casing. While the Toshiba didn’t stand out in terms of convenience, its LCD and control buttons were much more precise and easy to use than the Comfee’s analog dials.

Still, the Comfee CFO-BB101 serves its functions, saves space, and doesn’t use a lot of energy. Meanwhile, the Toshiba AC25CEW-BS gives you more back for your buck; in fact, it’s our pick for the best-value toaster oven.
