Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Alexander, and I am currently an Appliance Salesman.
It is rare that I ever find a product that is truly great in this business; however the Cuisinart TOB-195 is one of those rare finds. The Cuisinart TOB-195 is not just a toaster oven, it is a convection toaster oven. Majority people don’t understand how convection exact function works. Convection is a system of cooking in which there is a fan with a heating element in the back of the unit that distributes the heat evenly, ensuring a meal that is faster and entirety cooked.
Cooking a frozen pizza in a regular toaster oven leaves the cheese burnt and the middle frozen and soggy. However, with a convection toaster oven like the Cuisinart TOB-195, you get an even brown every time! Since the fan in the back is blowing out hot air and circulating it evenly throughout the oven, everything you cook comes out great! This toaster oven is like having a high-end oven like a “Wolf” or “Bosch” right in your home, only better because it heats up in less that a quarter of the time!
We have found the cheapest place to buy this cuisinart tob-195 is at Amazon where you can save up to 50 percent.
The Cuisinart TOB-195has shade control with heat sensor maintains precise oven temperature which are able to hold the heat incredibly steady! The Cuisinart TOB-195boasts 1500-watts, which is over 300 more than its GE competitor. The Cuisinart TOB-195 heats up over 4X faster than a conventional toaster oven! Why wait so long to make your food; have it cook better and faster with the Cuisinart TOB-195.
We’ve owned the oven for a little over a month so we can only provide you a small amount of usable information. We did a ton of research on toaster ovens prior to this purchase. The Cuisinart oven was the overall winner as far as reviews went across the web. But, more and more reviews these days are bought and paid for so you don’t know what to believe anymore. This is a legitimate review!
OVEN AESTHETICS & FUNCTIONS:
Nice clean design. Medium size footprint. Stainless steel, looks great on the counter, easy to operate, toasts evenly, timing seems to be exact and it comes with many available cooking options.
COMPLAINTS WE HEARD:
Some people complained about burning their hands on the glass door when opening the door with the handle. Not an issue unless you have monster size hands.
Some people complained about having to empty the crumb tray from the back. Not an issue in our opinion
Some people complained about the loud beeping when cooking is completed. Sounds like a normal beep to us.
Some people complained about how noisy the fan was while using the convection feature. It’s very quiet on our unit.
Some people complained about how BIG the oven is. It appears to be average size, as toaster ovens go, in our opinion.
WHAT WE KNOW TO BE TRUE:
The unit does get HOT on all sides while in use, but seems to cool down quickly after shut down. The unit is dark inside when you peer into it to check on your food. Best to place it in a well lit area. Not really an issue for us, just an observation.
OVERALL RATING We give it five (5) stars and are very satisfied with the product. But, like I said, we’ve only owned it a month!
I have had several toaster ovens in my 48 years of marriage. I purchased theCuisinart 195 in August 2009. I love love love this oven. It preheats quickly. It is by far the best oven on the market. Some reviewers have indicated that they thought they were buying stainless steel oven. If they will note description-it says color -stainless. That does not mean the outside is stainless. The oven is well made. I bought it to be used totally as an oven. I have not toasted in it. I have broiled steaks and baked numerous items. Very satisfied with the oven. You will not go wrong with this one.
