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.
