Cuisinart TOA-60BKS Convection Toaster Oven/Air Fryer Review


Cuisinart TOA-60BKS is an air fryer toaster oven with 0.6 cubic foot interior space and 7 cooking modes: Air fry, convection bake, convection broil, bake, broil, warm and toast. It can do almost anything but is it any good?


Cooking

Cuisinart TOA-60BKS cooks well – get the settings right and food will come out delicious! Sounds simple but at first it really isn’t. You have to use lower temperatures than you would with regular oven so there’s some learning curve. The first few times you cook the results might not be as expected because of this but you get it right fast.

Another thing you will appreciate how quiet it’s. Some air fryer toaster ovens are surprisingly loud when cooking but not this one.

There are some things to complain about too. Some meals you will have to flip midway cooking cycle for both sides to be cooked equally. Another flaw is that sides, top and back can get hot so be careful touching the housing when you are cooking or recently finished.

On the upside Cuisinart TOA-60BKS doesn’t heat up your whole house like a regular sized oven does. It also cooks pretty well so it does the main task of a air fryer toaster oven just fine.


Controls

Control panel features 4 dials: “Off/Oven timer”, “Temperature”, “Cooking function” and “Toast timer (Light/Medium/Dark)”.

The upside of mechanical dials is that they are super simple to use, anyone will intuitively understand how to use the air fryer toaster oven with no prior experience.

The downside is that they aren’t as accurate as digital controls. You can’t really set temperature down to a single degree or cooking time to a single minute, instead you eye it and set them approximately.


Features

Cuisinart TOA-60BKS air fryer toaster oven features nonstick easy-clean Interior and Interior light (can be turned on or off with a button).


Accessories

Cuisinart TOA-60BKS air fryer toaster oven comes with oven rack, baking pan and air fryer basket.


Other

Some consumers have had issues with long-term reliability. The most common issues reported after about a year of ownership are dials breaking or air fryer toaster oven failing altogether. With that being said most consumer feedback is positive.


Verdict

Overall Cuisinart TOA-60BKS is a good air fryer toaster oven. It has some shortcomings however it cooks well, has plenty of cooking modes and isn’t too expensive which is why it’s one of the more popular models.
