Even foodie snobs will find dignity in using this Cuisinart tob-195 toaster oven. This state-of-the-art technology is basically everything a cook want, and Cuisinart is actually doing an injustice by branding it as a “toaster oven”, since one would rather call it a legitimate range that can also toast bread or a bagel, if it wasn’t because of its small size. It is one of the rare instances where the “toaster” stage has well been exceeded.

Cuisinart TOB-195 Reviews
The reviews for the Cuisinart TOB-195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven Broiler are mainly 5 star, some 4 star, and very few 1, 2, or 3 star. It is just a very popular oven. “Cuisinart is doing this oven a marketable disservice by labeling it a “toaster” oven. Rather, this is a full fledged oven (in reduced size) that also happens to toast your bread too”.
Overall, this kitchen appliance is greatly designed, and features an electronic control pad that is easy to use. The LCD display is a must have. Because of its size, it takes only a few minutes for the toaster oven to warm up to the right temperature, and the digital control ensure that the oven always stays at the right temperature. An almost perfect kitchen item if it wasn’t because of the crumb tray that has to be pulled from the back.
