The Black & Decker TO3290XSD is an extra-wide toaster oven. It comes in the very popular stainless steel exterior that matches most if not all kitchen décor. Toaster ovens are amazing because they can serve so many different purposes. You can use a toaster to bake, oven fry,  warm up left overs/frozen snacks, or simply toast bread.

The TO3290XSD has dimensions of 13 x 15 x 23.5 inches and weighs less than 16 pounds. Because of its relatively small size (compared to a traditional convection oven) and wide range of utility, you can easily justify a place for it on your counter-top. Below, you will find more information about this toaster oven.

Convenient Low Priced Toaster Oven

There are so many reasons that you might want to buy a toaster oven. We were recently considering buying a toaster oven just to avoid heating up the big oven during the summer months.

If you’ve read any of the other reviews on this site, then you might know that I love appliances that serve multiple functions. They save you time, money, and space. The Black & Decker TO3290XSD eliminates the need for a toaster, and can replace your traditional oven for baking and broiling purposes.

The size is perfect for baking or warming 12 inch pizza pies. You can fit a 9×13 inch pan in this oven, so you can definitely prepare entire “one pot” meal for your family, like this spicy peanut chicken recipe. There are 7 pre-programmed cooking functions to help you make a variety of different meals. The convection fan ensures even distribution of heat throughout. You won’t have to worry about cool spots (parts of the oven that are cooler than the rest of the oven).

This toaster oven is convenient. The digital controls make selecting cooking time, timer, and temperature a breeze. There is a shade timer for toast, and a 120 minute precision timer with auto shutoff. Another benefit of the small dimensions are that the oven will warm up quicker than your traditional oven.

Black & Decker TO3290XSD Compared to Other Toaster Ovens

The Black & Decker TO3290XSD seems to be a decent toaster but you might want to consider a different model that’s been around the block a few times, so to speak. The Black & Decker brand typically makes good small kitchen appliances, but you may want to consider a different brand. So, below take a look at a popular counter top oven from Cuisinart.

VS Cuisinart TOB-135 Deluxe Convection Toaster Oven

The Cuisinart TOB-135 Deluxe convection oven is proven. There is a lot of customer feedback available for this product. Like the Black and Decker above, it can also hold a 12 inch pizza, has a digital control panel, 2 hour timer, stainless steel construction and automatic shutoff. The Cuisinart has nine pre-programmed functions compared to seven for the Black and Decker. These devices are very similar. But I think that the Cuisinart TOB-135 could be the better all around choice.

Summary

Overall, I believe that the Black & Decker TO3290XSD is a top notch machine.  It seems that this is just the latest iteration from a company that has history of making quality toaster ovens. If you aren’t completely sold on this model, there are lots of other quality options out there, including the Cuisinart TOB-135 listed above.
