Overall Review- 89% of the toaster oven reviews for this Cuisinart model (TOB-195) were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. This is one of those fabulous appliances that is able to take the place of your full-sized oven for many tasks. Some people use this handy countertop appliance as their "everyday" oven and use the energy-hogging full-sized oven for holidays and entertaining.
This Cuisinart model is quite spacious; it can accommodate a 12" pizza! All the settings are digital. The reviews show the controls to be very intuitive and user-friendly. This toaster oven is beautifully designed and has a solid, sturdy feel of quality to it. The interior temperature stays constant, even and accurate due to it's convection fan.
So what are the issues mentioned in the other 10% of reviews? There is no interior light; it can be difficult to see all the way into the toaster oven. This is true of most toaster ovens. Check out the Frigidaire FPCO06D7MS if an interior light is important to you. The crumb tray is located in the back of the unit making it inconvenient to empty. Although the handle stays cool to the touch while in use, the door of the toaster oven 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. Some people writing reviews see 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 appliances 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.
