Comparing the Cuisinart TOA-60 Air Fryer Toaster Oven to the Breville Smart Oven Pro (BOV845BSS) brings out the limitations of analog units. However, it also shows that elaborate digital products don’t necessarily perform better than their analog counterparts.

Although the Cuisinart is medium-sized and the Breville is large, the two have a similar number of design features, all of high build quality. In the end, the Breville has a slightly higher score by having one rack position more than the Cuisinart.

Usability-wise, it’s difficult for a simplistic analog model like the Cuisinart to score as high as the Breville. The Cuisinart only has four control dials for time, temperature, functions, toast settings, and a light switch.

The Breville, on the other hand, has various cooking presets and additional toggle switches including temperature conversion and adding time to frozen foods. It also has a non-stick interior for easy cleaning which is a rare feature.

The decisive factor for the Cuisinart’s victory is its performance that made us choose it as our best convection toaster oven. With the same power output, the Cuisinart’s convection system and nichrome heating elements maintained temperatures better and distributed heat more evenly.

As a result, all of its cooking results—toasting bread, roasting whole chicken, baking pizza, and air-frying fries— are in the top tier among our tested toaster oven, better than the Breville’s above average across the board. To top it all off, the Cuisinart is actually cheaper as well.
