The unit has built-in defrost, bagel and reheat buttons to make life easier. To make the best use of the convection option, experience users suggest using a temperature 25 degrees lower than what is specified in the recipe for optimum results.

Breville BOV800XL vs Cuisinart TOB-195

Often discussed alongside the Cuisinart TOB195, Breville BOV800XL is a powerful toaster oven with 1800 watts power. The toasting and baking options are aided by its built-in technology, Element IQ. Like the TOB195, it also has a broad array of cooking options and has high capacity.

However, there are some noticeable differences between the two. First of all, the Cuisinart’s crumb tray can only be accessed from the rear, whereas the Breville oven’s crumb tray is located in the front and can be slid out.

Moreover, the Breville model is entirely built of stainless steel, and the TOB195 is not. A common complaint about the TOB is that the region behind the door handle tends to get overheated, a problem not seen in the Breville BOV.

Users have also found the Breville oven’s controls to be more user-friendly and easier to figure out compared to Cuisinart.

Cuisinart TOB-195 vs TOB-135

The TOB-135 is another toaster oven from this brand that customers love. Compared to the TOB-195, this particular oven has a more traditional look with the controls affixed to the side of the door.

The TOB-195 has gone entirely digital with a digital touch interface. However, the TOB-135’s controls are not entirely digital. It still has a dial to control and program specific functions. Many consider the controls of the TOB-135 more user-friendly due to this.

Additionally, the TOB-135 has a blue backlit LED display that makes it easier to see the controls. Both come with top and bottom heating options, along with the bagel option that ensures a crispy top and a soft bottom.

In terms of performance, the models are evenly matched and can roast, grill and bake really well. Due to the more traditional design, the TOB-135 has the advantage of familiarity that many users love.
