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.

Featuring a standard design of a small toaster oven, the Black+Decker TO1760SS has all the basic features, with no noticeable strengths and weaknesses. The quartz heating elements may appeal to you if you want to opt for energy-saving devices.

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.

Due to its small size, the Black+Decker has some obvious limitations when it comes to features of usability, especially compared to our top choices. For example, it has no non-stick coating to help with cleaning, and the control panel has a lot of room for errors. Moreover, its advertised advanced technologies are more misses than hits.

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 Black+Decker TO1760SS performed to various degrees throughout our four tests. It was at its best toasting bread despite a minor inconvenience from the timer. With baking pizza, french fries, and roasting a whole chicken, however, the oven’s low power output affected the results by quite a lot.

Comfee Toaster Oven (CFO-BB101) and the Black and Decker 4 Slice Toaster Oven (TO1760SS) are two standard, small units. The latter costs a bit more but in return, has a slightly better overall score than the former.

Both toaster ovens only have two quartz heating elements and a few analog control dials. The aspect that separates them is the fact that the Black+Decker has a much higher build quality than the Comfee.

The Black+Decker has a thicker casing for better heat insulation. Its dials are also firmer and easier to precisely adjust than the Comfee’s.

The Comfee does stand out with its detachable crumb tray which usually helps with cleaning the inside. However, the Comfee’s cooking chamber is so small that the tray doesn’t help much.

Both toaster ovens have relatively low power outputs and no convection system. The Comfee scored higher than the Hamilton in roasting whole chicken and baking fries but lower in baking pizza. What really brought down the Comfee was its bad toast results—a test that takes up a large portion of our evaluation.
