This Cuisinart TOB-40 Custom Classic Toaster Oven Broiler offers several functions and uses without taking up too much room on the countertop. It can accommodate an 11 inch pizza, two full bagels or a couple of large sandwiches. This makes it a good option for cooking for one or a couple in a small space. If you want plenty of function without sacrificing a lot of kitchen room, this is a good option.
This Cuisinart TOB-40 comes with a slide out oven rack that makes it easy to remove hot food. It also has a broiling rack that puts foods closer to the broiler for efficient broiling. There’s a drip pan to catch messes. The entire interior of this unit is non-stick so it’s very easy to keep it clean.
Three easy to use dials offer total customization. You can choose the setting from bagel, bake, toast or broil and set the heat to your desired level. For toast you can select by darkness shade to get exactly what you want.
Perfect Middle Ground
If you’re in the market for a quality toaster oven but you don’t want to spend a fortune or give up too much room in your kitchen, this model is a great middle ground. It stands up to the larger, more expensive options in cooking quality.
Easy to Use
The easy to turn dials are simple and basic. There aren’t a lot of bells and whistles, but this toaster oven gets the job done so you can get on with your day. This Cuisinart is easy to understand with all the basic functions you need.
Quality Product, Works Well
The Cuisinart TOB-40 is a quality product that evenly toasts and efficiently cooks. It may be more basic than some other models, but for the basic features, it’s a highly reliable choice.
This oven doesn’t feature a timer, which makes it a poor option for a standard oven replacement. If you’re looking for something that you can use to bake a cake or roast a whole chicken, you should consider a larger model with a timer.
Cracked Heating Elements
The most common issue reported with this Cuisinart toaster oven is that the heating elements can crack. This usually happens after a year or so of constant use, and it can be repaired if you send the unit to the manufacturer.
If you are a single person or a couple looking for a toaster oven with a small footprint, this is a great option. You won’t be able to bake a cake or a family-size pizza in it, but you can have delicious broiled sandwiches and quick, easy snacks every day. If you are looking for a standard oven replacement, consider a different model. Although this is a quality toaster oven, the heating elements can crack after a while of constant use.
