Not only do they share the same brand, the Oster French Door (TSSTTVFDDG) and the Oster 6 Slice (TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2) are also both large digital convection toaster ovens. After we examined the most minute details, the slightly smaller Oster 6 Slice wins by a hair’s breadth. On a side note, the 6 Slice is also much cheaper.

The two toaster ovens have a similar number of design features but the Oster French Door stands out more and has slightly higher scores. The oven has a sleek brushed stainless steel design and a unique French door to separate it from the more common look of the 6 Slice.

However, the build does make the Oster TSSTTVFDDG harder to carry, especially when it doesn’t have carrying handles like the TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2. Moreover, even though it has the largest cooking chamber among our tested toaster ovens, it only has two rack positions, not enough to make full use of the space.

The two are similar in terms of usability as well. Their control panels are of similar quality although the Oster French Door’s is more aesthetic. The Oster 6 Slice won because it was easier to clean, especially its guide rails and baking pan.

Performance was the decisive winning factor for the Oster 6 Slice. Despite its lower power draw, it had higher scores in almost all of our tests, including toasting bread, baking pizza, and fries, only losing slightly in roasting whole chicken. We suspected the Oster French Door isn’t powerful enough to accommodate such a large cooking space.
