Advantages

 

Thanks to its roomy interior and wide temperature range, the Oster TSSTTVDGXL is one of the most versatile and efficient toaster ovens out there. Few models can rival the speed and quality of it when it comes to preparing larger meals.

prosFront Access Removable Crumb Tray

A sliding crumb tray is located at the bottom of the toaster oven to catch food debris that may fall from the food racks. It can be slid out easily from the front for easy cleaning.

prosEasy-clean Interior

The interior walls of the Oster TSSTTVDGXL can be wiped clean with a piece of damp cloth due to its non-stick nature.

prosCompatible with Third Party Accessories

If you want extra accessories to complement the original set, you have a wide range of third party goods to choose from. One of the most popular accessories is OvenStuff Non-stick 6-piece Toaster Oven Baking Panset that includes 7.7″ pizza pans (2), 8.5″ x 6.5″ cookie pan (1), cooling rack (1), 8.5″ x 6.5″ two piece fat-a-way bake and broil pan (1).

prosEnergy-efficient

Full-sized ovens are not very efficient for cooking small to medium-sized meals. Being an extra large toaster oven, the Oster TSSTTVDGXL can be a replacement countertop oven that save over 50% of the energy used to cook the same meal in a conventional electric oven.

 

What Could be Better?

 

consLack of Interior Light

Some consumers may find it inconvenient to check cooking progress as the model does not come with an interior light bulb. This can be circumvented by placing a mini torch light in the kitchen for occasional monitoring.

consShort Power Cord

Apart from that one of the most common complaints is the short power cord that only spans slightly more than 2 feet long. You may need an extension cable if your power socket is not on the correct side. However, it can’t really be avoided as all toaster ovens have such a short cord due to safety regulations.

 

The Bottom line

 

Being one of the household names, Oster definitely does a good job designing home appliances and especially toaster ovens. The Oster TSSTTVDGXL Extra Large Digital Countertop Oven is designed to take up the limited space on your countertop but at the same time excels at toasting, baking, broiling and heating food at a very affordable price tag.
