The Cuisinart TOB-155 Toaster Oven Broiler bakes, broils and toasts foods as large as a chicken or a 12-inch pizza. Consumers say it heats evenly and accurately, and is easy to use and clean. Some, however, complain that the oven doesn't automatically shut off when the timer sounds. Others say the design of the door handle can lead to burned fingers and knuckles.
Doubles as a second oven. At least one user says this Cuisinart toaster oven is large enough to be used as a backup oven. It has a 0.6 cubic foot capacity and can toast six slices of bread at a time. Its three cooking options -- pizza/bake, broil and toast -- are praised for cooking and toasting evenly. Some owners wish the oven would shut off when the timer sounds, and complain about burnt fingers when pulling on the handle and accidentally touching the door. The TOB-155 comes with a three-year warranty.
Simple to operate. The Toaster Oven Broiler's one-touch controls make it easy to operate and its Exact Heat sensor maintains a precise oven temperature. It beeps five times and turns off when the toasting cycle finishes, and will shut off automatically after four hours. The Cuisinart has a two-position rack with a safety-stop feature, clock and oven timer.
The TOB-155 is easy to clean thanks to a nonstick interior and a crumb tray that pulls out from the back, users say.
Stainless-steel good looks. Owners like the looks of the TOB-155 Toaster Oven Broiler. It has stainless steel front panels, a brushed chrome commercial-style handle and a matte black exterior. The control panel is arranged along the bottom of the oven with clearly marked buttons and LCD. A cord storage area keeps everything neat.
Some consumers complain about the Cuisinart's large footprint; others say it isn't as big as they thought it would be. A number of users report that the metal trim on the oven door heats up during use and poses a burn risk.
