Ninja Foodi XL Pro vs Oster TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2 Toaster Oven

Overall Verdict

The Ninja Foodi XL Pro (DT201) and the Oster TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2 are both large digital convection toaster ovens. While the Oster is a decent unit, it just can’t compete with the Ninja—our best large toaster oven. The Foodi XL Pro is more than twice the price of the Oster but also larger and has significantly higher scores.

The TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2 does have similar exterior features including ventilation slats and a slide-out crumb tray. However, it only has the standard interior features for its price range, which wasn’t enough.

Usability-wise, the Oster can toggle its interior light but not its convection setting. On the other hand, the Ninja has a much more informative digital display as well as more expansive and intuitive control.

The biggest drawback for the Oster lies in build quality. Its casing is not very thick, so heat insulation won’t be as good as the Ninja. Its buttons also, more often than not, require some work to register properly.

With a lower power output and weaker convection, the Oster just can’t give the foods the caramelized look and crispy texture that the Ninja can. It’s quite funny that those two weaknesses made the food less prone to fat splashes so cleaning was less of a hassle.
