Summary

The Cuisinart TOB-40N Custom Classic Toaster Oven Broiler is attractive and comes with a toast rack and pan. Some claim that the price is low, but the matter of fact is that the unit is rather expensive. The rest of the product is fine, especially some features like always even toast, extra wide interior, and separate knobs for temperature, functions, and toasting.

The extra wide space to accommodate up to 11” pizza or 6 slices of toasts while consuming 1800 watts of power tells the story of powerful features of this toaster oven. The Cuisinart TOB-40N Custom Classic Toaster Oven Broiler is designed to handle tasks ranging from just keeping the food warm to tough cooking jobs with all basic features.

Despite its wide interior, the toaster oven has a compact design and comes with stainless steel construction. The design is simple and it looks cool. The manufacturer claims it’s a performer and a versatile and durable kitchen appliance, but we will examine facts to conclude if the claims are true.

Great Temperature Control – Separate Knobs

The Cuisinart Custom Classic Toaster Oven Broiler comes with 4 basic set of functions, which are toast, bagel, bake, and broil functions. The bagel function is usually missing in the appliances of this class as it requires a unit to stop heating from one side so that you can taste the soft side as well as crunchy from another side.

The temperature control is improved and it has a separate knob, which is adjustable between 150-450 degrees and Broils on the maximum. The special thing about this toaster is the toasting feature, which is able to deliver uniform shades, precisely, on the both sides. The toast shade knob is also separate, unlike other models with integrated timer settings.

The “Always Even” shade control is an exclusive feature that screens the toasting temperature and adjusts the time accordingly. This results in precise shades every time, great for those who have always been struggling with uniform shades.

Smart Design – Smart Functions

Once you set function to toast or bagel, simply press the toast/bagel button in the bottom so that toaster can start the task. The Cuisinart TOB-40N was designed keeping every aspect of handling toaster oven in mind. It has auto slide-out rack which comes out when you pull the door knob.

With this feature, you can handle hot rack or slices without burning your fingers during reloading or removal of food. It has a cool touch handle. This part is more vulnerable to heat and it is also very frequently used and remains cool. The soft rubber on knobs allow good grip, it was steel in previous ovens, which used to slip with wet hands. The crumb tray slides out real nice & easy and it is made of non-stick material, making cleaning really easy. T

he indicator light glows to confirm task processing and turns off when done. However, be very careful with the heating elements as they are uncovered. They do have shock protective foil, but crumbs, food debris, oil or water can stick on them. You may damage them while cleaning so extra care is recommended.
