SEE ALL 424 TOASTER OVEN REVIEWS

Rating  This toaster oven has an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars

Size– This toaster oven measures approximately 16 by 17-3/4 by 9-5/8 inches

Watts– 1500

Convection– Yes

Features- This toaster oven featues a pizza/bake setting(up to 500 degrees F) as well as broil, toast, and convection settings; there are bagel, reheat, and defrost buttons. It has electronic touchpad controls, a clock and oven timers. Shade control with heat sensor maintains precise oven temperature while in use. It comes with a baking pan and broiler tray.

Overall Review- 89% of the reviews for this toaster oven are very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. This is one of those fabulous toaster ovens that is able to take the place of your full-sized oven for many tasks. Some people use this toaster oven as their "everyday" oven and use the full-sized oven for holidays and entertaining.

This Cuisinart toaster oven is very roomy; it can accommodate a 12" pizza! All the settings are digital and easy to use. It is beautifully designed and has a solid, sturdy feel of quality to it. The temperature stays constant, even and accurate due to it's convection fan. Most of the reviews reflect these positive aspects.

So what are the issues mentioned in the other 11% of reviews? There is no interior light; it can be difficult to see all the way into the toaster oven. The crumb tray is in the back making it inconvenient to empty. Although the handle stays cool to the touch while in use, the door does not. Many reviews mention burns as a result.

The tray on this Cuisinart toaster oven doesn't automatically come out when the door opens; this is one issue mentioned in the reviews. Some people saw this as a non-issue (after all, your full-sized oven is the same way) while others saw this as a huge problem and safety issue. A few people complained that it is noisy; a common complaint on toaster ovens equipped with convection fans. Most people felt the noise was minimal and the even baking offered by the convection feature more than makes up for it.

Overall, this is a great toaster oven that can do a lot for you. There are 424 detailed customer reviews available, written by real people who have used this Cuisinart toaster oven. See All 424 Cuisinart Toaster Oven Reviews

Rating- This toaster oven has an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars

Size– This toaster oven measures approximately 16 by 17-3/4 by 9-5/8 inches

Watts– 1500

Convection– No

Features- This toaster oven features pizza/bake, broil, and toast options; it also has bagel, reheat, and defrost buttons. It featues electronic touch-pad controls, a clock and oven timers.

Overall Review- An impressive 91% of the reviews for this Cuisinart toaster oven are very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. The reviews paint picture of a well-built, sturdy toaster oven with a solid look and feel. It is both stylish and functional. The toaster oven heats up quickly and cooks evenly. It is rather large (fits a 12 inch pizza) which some reviews bill as a pro while others feel this is a con.

There are a few negative aspects to this toaster oven that you will find scattered throughout the reviews. The door gets very hot. Although the handle does stay cool, many find this to be a burn hazard. There is no interior light and the rack does not automatically eject when the door is opened. The crumb tray is located in the back of the toaster oven, making cleaning less than convenient.

The timer on this toaster oven is very loud. Some reviews praise this feature (makes it easier to hear) while others despise it's loudness, some reveiws even compare it to a smoke alarm. There is no way to disarm or quiet the timer; something to keep in mind if you like to cook while people sleep nearby.

The digital controls are not as user friendly or intuitive as some those found on other toaster ovens. If you are technically impaired, this may not be the best toaster oven for you.

All in all, the reviews show this to be a good toaster oven able to take the place of your full-sized oven for most tasks, saving you time and energy costs.

Rating- This toaster oven has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars

Size– This toaster oven measures approximately 16.2 x 18.8 x 11 inches

Watts– 1800

Convection– Yes

Features- This toaster oven comes with a baking pan/drip pan, broiling rack, wire rack, front removable slide-out crumb tray, and a clutter-free cord wrap. The auto slide out rack allows for easy removal of food.

Overall Review- 77% of the reviews for this Cuisinart toaster oven are very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. If you remove two negative reviews that will be highlighted in the next paragraph, the number of very positive reviews gets even better.

First, one review was expressing quite a lot of anger at the lack of a timer when using the baking function. There is a timer and auto shut-off when utilizing the toasting feature. It seems puzzling that some people expect more out of a less expensive counter top oven than a standard full-sized built-in oven that costs much more. Granted, a timer would be nice, but ask yourself if you have ever been able to use normal ovens without auto shut-off in the past. If you answered "yes," you may want to consider this toaster oven and use a different timing device. The second negative review issue involved a chemical taste and smell when using the toaster oven the first few times. This is common, and most toaster oven manuals recommend a "burn off" before preparing food in the oven. The "burn off" involves running the toaster oven at a high temperature until all fumes subside. After this is done once, it will never need to be done again.

The majority of reviews for this Cuisinart toaster oven paint a picture of a solid, well-constructed appliance that does everything you want a toaster oven to do. This is a beautiful toaster oven that will look great on your countertop. The rack is large (11 inches by 11 inches,) allowing versatility in use. This Cuisinart toaster oven bakes and toasts very well.

    I just ordered this unit based upon the three glowing reviews, especially about the toasting performance. Then I started to think about, hey, I didn’t see a timer on this thing! So I went back on the site, zoomed in on the picture, an no timer. That’s why the reviewers commented on “no ticking sound.” So you put in your meal, crank up the temp, turn it to broil and get sidetracked. The only way you’ll remember is when you discover the kitchen is on fire? Not good. It is downright dangerous, if not stupid, to not have a timer on a small appliance like this that gets as hot as any toaster oven does.

    Si I canceled the order and I’m back to spend another hour or two trying to find a toaster oven that doesn’t have a bunch of one-star reviews. How hard could it be to build a decent toaster oven? Our present one is a KRUPS, five years old, works like new, is amazing. BUT we have had to replace the touch-pad three times already and it needs it again. So guess what? The number one complaint on every Krups toaster oven is the the touch pads fall apart. They just keep on making an inferior part like that?

    Still looking.

    UPDATE:

    OK, so I agonize over reviews before buying something as simple as a toaster oven. I guess I mush like doing that or I wouldn’t do it. It was dismaying to me to read the reviews on literally dozens of toaster ovens only to discover that not one was devoid of some pretty major issues. I would think that after so many years of designing such a simple appliance, somebody would have gotten it right by now, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

    Back to the Cuisinart in question, I did finally buy this one, but only because it had the fewest complaints. One reason for this might be that it had only three reviews, all from people who were using it as a toaster and not as an oven. One ever remarked that one reason for her choice was the lack of a “ticking timer.” I assumed that the timer was electronic rather than mechanical like on similar Cuisinart models, but alas, rather than electronic or mechanical, the timer was simply absent.

    So here’s my update: This thing is a terrific toaster. Bagels, toast, open-face sandwiches, whatever. It toasts evenly and just does it right, as proclaimed in the other reviews. The oven part works fine, too, and we kind of got around the no-timer issue by leaving a kitchen timer with a loud bell right by the toaster oven. So now I just make sure I am within hearing range of the timer when I do my 12-minute pizza.

    I still hold that the missing timer is a HUGE design flaw, but one that I would rather deal with than having one of the others that either catches on fire, the glass door cracks, the handle gets hot enough to cause serious burns, it burns everything you put in it, the touch pad falls apart in a few months, ad nauseam. One other issue with this one, just as a caution, is that the back of the oven gets hot enough to melt the insulation off of the power cord, so make sure you don’t bunch up the cord behind the oven and push the oven up against a wall. Actually, you need to intentionally NOT push it up against any surface that is intolerant to extreme heat, because (another flaw?) this oven does not have the protrusions on the back that keep the hot back panel away from a wall as many other toaster ovens do.

    I changed my one-star to two.
