Oster French Door vs Ninja Foodi XL Pro Toaster Oven

Overall Verdict

The Oster French Door (TSSTTVFDDG) and the Ninja Foodi XL Pro (DT201) are two of the largest toaster ovens on our roster. At first glance, the Oster is slightly larger and also more expensive than the Ninja. However, our tests showed that the former was inferior to the latter in every aspect of evaluation.

Exterior-wise, the Oster has ventilation slats on all sides that we like. Its glass french door with cool-touch door handles also stood out well.

Unfortunately, the main thing pulling the Oster behind is its build quality. Its buttons require a lot of force to register and the french door can slam shut if your hands slip. On the other hand, the Ninja’s door hinge is firm and its buttons are responsive and intuitive to use.

The Oster also has no extra features to help with conveniences like toggle switches, other information besides timer and input temperature, or a slide-out crumb tray—which the Ninja does. Performance-wise, the Oster wasn’t equipped with a high power output and powerful convection system to deliver the utmost cooking capabilities like the Ninja.
