The Breville BOV450XL Mini Smart and the Oster French Door Convection Toaster Oven (TSSTTVFDDG), interestingly, have similar overall scores. Here’s the catch though, the first one is small while the second is extra large and they also have similar prices.

The Breville’s higher power output allowed it to score higher in baking fries and especially toasting bread—our most crucial performance test—earning it the decisive edge to win against the Oster. On the other hand, the Oster’s nichrome heating elements and convection system allowed it to beat the Breville in baking pizza and roasting whole chicken.

The two toaster ovens have equal scores in terms of design. The Breville has a higher build quality shown in its thicker casing and well-designed control panel. Meanwhile, the Oster evened out the score with its convection system, interior light, and distinguished french door.

Both units were simple to use, but none were particularly convenient. The Breville has a non-stick interior coating for easy cleaning while the Oster’s large cooking chamber makes it easy to work around in general. The Oster’s flat buttons don’t respond as well and the information displayed on the LCD isn’t as detailed as the Breville’s.
