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 Oster TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2 has a simple and sturdy design, plus a convenient slide-out crumb tray. The large interior houses a togglable lightbulb and convection system. A consistent disadvantage that this oven has is its low wattage compared to something like the Ninja DT201.

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.

While the digital control panel of the Oster TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2 is straightforward and easy to use, its buttons can be more responsive. In addition to that, having to press Cancel before changing functions can get annoying.

The convection fan isn’t all-applicable, but it’s not a problem. On the other hand, the oven’s design features, including its accessories, make cleaning an effortless exercise.

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 strongest performance aspect of the Oster TSSTTVMNDG-SHP-2 was the even coloring on our test dishes, thanks to its convection system. However, it didn’t meet the mark in baking frozen french fries.

This was probably due to the low power output combined with the large capacity, unlike the picks on our best toaster oven list. Moreover, having only two tray positions made it tricky to get the toast done right on both sides.

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.
