Build Quality
Overall Design Scoring

The Ninja DT201 shows a high build quality in all of its design features from the exterior and interior to the included accessories. What stood out to us the most was the powerful convection system and the number of heating elements. We couldn’t confirm the accuracy of the Ninja’s claim that it had ‘up to ten times the convection power’ of a traditional full-size convection oven, though.

The Cosori CO130-AO has a lot of design features, all of which are of high build quality. A few that stood out to us were the clear LED display, powerful convection system, large cooking space, high power output, and handy accessories like the rotisserie kit and air fryer basket. If we were trying to be nitpicky, we’d say the interior can be improved with a non-stick coating like the Breville BOV845BSS.

Usability Comparison

User Control
Ease of Use
Overall Usability Scoring

The straightforward control panel on the Ninja DT201 allowed for easy adjusting and readjusting of the cooking settings. Moreover, the informative display combined with distinguished buttons removed all of the guesswork when it came to operating the oven.

The oven’s practical cooking functions shined all the more in combination with the 2-level even cooking feature. The oven’s interior could be improved with a coating for easier cleaning, though.

A well-designed automatic preheat phase, simple toggle options, and practical cooking functions gave the Cosori CO130-AO a good score. The cooking chamber as well as accessories could have better coatings to make them easier to clean, though. As an additional minor inconvenience, the oven doesn’t have a pause-resume mechanism upon opening and closing the oven door.

Overall Performance Scoring

The Ninja DT201 performed differently on each of our tests but even at its worst, it still gave good results. We were most impressed with the oven’s ability to quickly reach and maintain its temperature despite the large cooking chamber. This could be attributed to the oven’s high power output, powerful convection system, and a total of 5 heating elements.

With these factors, you don’t even need to turn food during cooking, especially if you incorporate the air fryer basket. Interestingly, this was one of the few units where we felt increasing the food amounts would lead to even better results.

The Cosori CO130-AO, on average, performed great throughout all of our tests. It made full use of its high power output of 1800 W and its powerful convection system. To us, these were some of the main grounds for establishing the product’s value for the money. The included rotisserie kit and air fryer basket were also very helpful in our Whole Roasted Chicken and Baked French Fries tests, respectively.

The Ninja Foodi XL Pro Air Fryer Toaster Oven (DT201) and the Cosori Air Fryer Toaster Oven (CO130-AO) are two top contenders on our list. They are the reigning champions in their respective category—the first one is our best large pick and the second one is our definitive best-to-buy pick.

Score-wise, their fight ended with marginal differences with the victory going over to the Ninja. The Cosori got its title by having a significantly cheaper price and equal performance to the Ninja. Meanwhile, the Ninja was chosen for its extra large capacity and the ability to utilize it with its ‘two-level even cooking’ feature.

The Cosori had a higher design score from having ventilation slats on all sides, which help with overheat protection. Usability-wise, however, the Foodie XL Pro scored higher by having what the Cosori already had—an informative digital display, intuitive buttons, numerous cooking presets, and additional toggle switches—just more well-designed.

Both units actually tied in their average performance score. The Ninja won in toasting bread and roasting chicken while the Cosori evened the playing field in baking pizza and fries. They both have the same power output and used similar accessories so it was hard to point out why they performed better in different tests.
