The match between the Toshiba AC25CEW-BS Digital Convection Toaster Oven and the Oster French Door Digital Convection Toaster Oven (TSSTTVFDDG) shows that the largest size doesn’t necessarily bring the best value. The Toshiba is smaller but with higher scores in all aspects and at a lower price.

In terms of design features, the Toshiba and the Oster pretty much go toe to toe. The Toshiba has side carrying handles and more air ventilation slats while the Oster has a unique French door and a thicker casing.

The Oster has more nichrome heating elements and an interior light while the Toshiba doesn’t. However, the Toshiba has a higher build quality shown in its more informative LCD and more responsive buttons. It also comes with a rotisserie kit that’s rare for its price range.

Both toaster ovens have the same power draw, so the Toshiba’s smaller cooking chamber actually allowed it to faster reach and better maintain the desired temperature. As a result, it scored better than the Oster in almost all of our performance tests except for roasting a whole chicken where the Oster ended up with just the right internal temperature.
