Build Quality
Overall Design Scoring

The Toshiba Toaster Oven AC25CEW is light, sturdy, and boasts a good design that encompasses its accessories. Features that stand out for us are its many ventilation holes, sturdy stands, and lightweight structure.

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.

Usability Comparison

User Control
Ease of Use
Overall Usability Scoring

The Toshiba AC25CEW Toaster Oven isn’t difficult to use but it’s not particularly convenient either. The accessories show signs of attention to detail but not so much the user interaction.

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.

Overall Performance Scoring

The Toshiba Toaster Oven AC25CEW did well in all of our performance tests, mainly thanks to its convection system. It also got plus points for the convenient accessories, putting it above many of the same-sized units, e.g., the Hamilton Beach 31127D.

We thought its results in toasting bread, roasting a whole chicken, and baking french fries could have been better with a higher power output though. Surprisingly, it was excellent at baking pizza despite its 1500 W of power.

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 Toshiba AC25CEW-BS Convection Toaster Oven and the Ninja Foodi XL Pro Air Fryer Toaster Oven (DT201) both present in our top list under different categories. Looking at the overall score, the Ninja—as our best large pick— is definitely the winner. However, the Toshiba offers a lot of value in all aspects including design, usability, and especially performance at more than half the price.

The Toshiba has ventilation slats on all sides which is helpful in keeping the oven from overheating. Meanwhile, the Ninja has a thicker casing for better heat insulation.

The AC25CEW-BS has four nichrome heating elements which is less than what the Foodi XL Pro has but still enough for its size. However, it lacks the internal lighting that the Ninja has.

The Toshiba has a straightforward control panel that accomplishes what it set out to do. The Ninja, however, has much better-designed cooking presets and more freedom for control with its toggle switches. Both toaster ovens have an unobstructed cooking chamber and a slide-out crumb tray so they can be cleaned as easily as one another.

For its price, the Toshiba delivered a very solid performance in our cooking tests. The Ninja did perform better with its higher power output and strongest convection settings but that didn’t take away from the Toshiba.
