This in essence is a family centric toaster oven that offers an interior big enough to accommodate from a family-size 16-inch frozen or take-and-bake pizza to a whole chicken, a 13-by-9-inch casserole, or a pan of bread sticks or cinnamon rolls. In fact, you could fit up to 14 slices of bread at a time. It will hold almost anything you want. Some ovens say they can handle a standard casserole dish, but only if there is no rim and the pan itself is very thin. This extra-large oven can easily handle a single casserole dish, and can almost handle a second one. We can safely say that the Oster TSSTTVXLDG has really been intended for large families.
A removable baking pan and broil rack for baking, broiling and grilling and a two removable wire racks comes with it. It has two oven racks that allow multi-level cooking options.
To make things simple, the manufacturer of this oven opted to use digital controls making the novice and experienced home chef alike to operate this oven with ease. To make a selection, just simply press the desired option from the selection. Functions include Toast, Bake, Broil, Warm, Defrost, and Pizza. There is also a setting that uses turbo convection-heat technology called Convection Bake. With Convection Bake, hot air circulates throughout the oven’s interior, just like with a high-end full-size oven. In theory, this should give you juicy meat and flavorful, gently cooked vegetables, as well as crispy edges and flakey crusts.
And as expected from a digital control panel, a Temp button with up and down arrows for increasing or decreasing the cooking temperature (from 150 to 450 degrees F) is included. A timer button is present as well which gives you a maximum of 90 minute cook time. The time is displayed in a form of a digital clock displaying the time of the day as well.
Furthermore, as expected, the oven sports a large, fully transparent, glass door that makes it possible to keep an eye on cooking food. It doesn’t let the heat escape as well according to the manufacturer.
As far as my opinion is concern, the built quality of this oven looks great. This is one of the biggest toasters available. You can fit huge amounts of food in there at a time. The downside to this is that toasting is uneven and slow, a problem for many toaster ovens. The cooking is good, though, and the convection oven works nicely. This toaster oven may quickly replace your regular oven for most daily cooking needs.
With all the upsides, there will always be a downside. The convection fan of this toaster oven is loud, and gets louder at higher temperatures. And just like any other toaster, the exterior gets very hot. Toasting is sometimes uneven.
Also, it should have been better if they have included a child lockout feature that basically locks the control panel so that children cannot use the microwave unsupervised. It also lacks an auto defrost feature, that I guess is too much to ask for its price tag.
Overall, this Oster TSSTTVXLDG Toaster Oven is a great value for your money. With all the features and functions that was mentioned above, I can say that it’s actually like getting something more than what you have paid for. Online feedback of users is very positive as well. So I think this is definitely a best buy.
To wrap things up, I can say that at $99.50, the Oster TSSTTVXLDG Toaster Oven delivers decent features, convection cooking and extra-large capacity for a great value.
