Cuisinart TOB-195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven Broiler, Stainless Review

Small countertop ovens make baking, broiling or reheating foods more convenient for the home chief these days. No longer do we have to waste energy and create too much heat in the kitchen when we use a large oven for a small dish. A smaller more energy efficient countertop appliance makes sense when you are only cooking for one or two and not a whole family. While I was doing research for small countertop ovens, I discovered the popular Cuisinart TOB-195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven Broiler. This review looks at just some of the things I like about it and why.

Convenient Controls

Having to figure out the temperature and time to bake or heat up a dish isn’t a problem anymore because the Cuisinart TOB-195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven Broiler gives you several preset choices. It includes buttons for pizza/baking, toasting, bagel, convection, bagel, reheating and defrosting. The touchpad is ergonomically located below the oven glass door for easy access. What I find very useful to have is the built in timer and clock, which many other brands of countertop toaster ovens decide not to include. Having a built in timer that automatically turns off the oven when the baking is done lets you walk away without having to worry about burning your dish.

Looks Good In Any Kitchen

Have you seen the other toaster ovens out there? I’m sure they do their job well, but I personally don’t think they look as good as the Cuisinart TOB-195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven Broiler. I believe the Cuisinart stainless steel look will look good in anyone’s kitchen no matter what the colors of the tiles, walls, cabinetry and countertops are. The stainless steel appearance gives the oven a professional and contemporary feel and will complement the other appliances. This oven should not be stored away but siting on the counter to be used and admired.

Customer Reviews and Ratings

Before I make any purchase, I usually find out what other people think about the product. Only after I read an unbiased review will I feel confident about purchasing something. On a well known shopping site, 366 customer gave the Cuisinart TOB-195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven Broiler an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars.
