Cuisinart TOB-40N Classic vs Cosori Air Fryer Toaster Oven

Overall Verdict

The Cuisinart TOB-40N Custom Classic Toaster Oven lost everything against the Cosori Air Fryer Toaster Oven (CO130-AO). Its only saving grace was it good performance score despite not having convection.

Nonetheless, the Cuisinart just couldn’t compare with the Cosori’s excellent scores. At the same power draw, the Cosori has more heating elements and a convection system to ace all of our cooking tests, including toasting bread, baking pizza, roasting whole chicken, and air-frying fries. It also has a rotisserie kit and an air-fryer basket to cover more cooking methods.

Design-wise, the Cuisinart only has the standard features that are not of very high quality. Meanwhile, the Cosori has an intricate control panel with an informative digital display, intuitive buttons, and toggle switches for convection settings, lighting, and temperature conversion. The Cuisinart has a large cooking chamber for a medium size but doesn’t make full use of the space like an actual large size like the Cosori.
