Cuisinart TOB-40N vs Black+Decker CTO6335S Toaster Oven

Overall Verdict

The Cuisinart TOB-40N and the Black+Decker CTO6335S were worthy adversaries every step of the way. Performance-wise, the Black+Decker won out at baking pizza, french fries, and roasting a whole chicken while the Cuisinart only scored better at making toast. Nonetheless, the actual scores were only marginally different with the edge going to the Black+Decker.

The Cuisinart and the Black+Decker both have 4 heating elements but the former’s are nichrome while the latter’s are quartz. Although the Cuisinart has a higher power rating — 1800 W compared to 1500 W, it doesn’t have a convection system like the Black+Decker.

Both ovens are built sturdy and include slide-out crumb trays, but the Black+Decker stands out with its tamper-resistant casing. Despite having a large cooking chamber for its size category, the Cuisinart just can’t compete with an actual large-sized unit. In addition, the Black+Decker’s various cooking functions and broiling rack can be extra helpful to beginner homecooks.

The easy-grip dials of the Cuisinart are more reliable than its competitor’s buttons though. With the ovens’ similar prices, the Cuisinart’s auto-slide rack and its customized stay-on feature might just win you over.
