During the competition with the Oster TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2 Digital Convection Toaster Oven, the Toshiba AC25CEW-BS Digital Convection Toaster Oven once again proved itself as our best-value pick. The Toshiba is slightly smaller and cheaper than the Oster but has substantially higher scores.

Both units have a similar convection system and four nichrome heating elements, so the Toshiba’s higher power output allowed it to significantly pull ahead in toasting bread and baking pizza. However, roasting a whole chicken didn’t require as high a temperature, so the two toaster ovens had an even score. Moreover, the difference in power wasn’t enough to make a noticable difference in baking french fries.

Design-wise, the Toshiba had a more sturdy build and more durable material. Although both units were digital, the Toshiba’s LCD displayed the information more thoroughly. In addition, the Toshiba’s buttons were also more responsive than the Oster’s.

Overall, the Toshiba AC25CEW-BS Toaster Oven gives you more bangfor your buck. Nonetheless, the Oster TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2 Digital Convection Toaster Oven is still a decent, simple, and robust large unit.
