Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven

For a lot of people, a Cuisinart Air Fryer isn’t their first air fryer.Many start off with a cheap small one to make sure they are going to like air frying. This is a mistake! The Cuisinart TOA-60 Air Fryer toaster Oven and the Cuisinart AFR-25 have been game changing for foodies falling in love with air fryers. So, to help you navigate this, we put together four Cuisinart air fryer reviews, buying recommendations, links to discounts, FAQs and products specifications.

A small, throw away air fryer will waste your money, counter space and time. Some $30 machine that only fries a half pound of food won’t give you the right experience. If you buy Cuisinart Appliances, then it is because you know that the best food doesn’t come from the cheapest kitchen tools.

The Surprising Joys of Air Frying

Air frying is amazing. Everyone talks about the health benefits, but it is very convenience and clean too. You can make fried foods every day without health issues, oil splatters and long cleanups.

I was late to the air frying game. My wife just bought a Cuisinart air fryer one day and spring it on us, talking about health…blah, blah, blah. When I learned that air fryers pump hot air over the food, I was worried it would be tasteless and dry.

I was totally wrong. Air frying is a healthier way to prepare delicious fried favorites. Things don’t taste exactly like an oil fryer, particularly battered items. But it really is amazing. During football season I make wings in it. I dry the wings, spray with oil and then mix with homemade buffalo sauce.

We have a total of four Cuisinart air fryer reviews below as part of our 2020 Cuisinart Buyers Guide which includes Cuisinart Toasters and Cuisinart Coffee Makers. Here we look at the Cuisinart TOA-60, TOA-65 and TOA-28 models in depth. We also review the Cuisinart AFR-25, which is the only one in the list that’s a pure air fryer.

Cuisinart TOA-60 Review

Our first Cuisinart air fryer toaster oven review is the best known, Cuisinart TOA60 air fryer. The “Cuisinart TOA-60 convection toaster oven air fryer with light” is quite a mouthful. It should be, because the TOA60 is a full-sized toaster oven with built-in airfryer that replaces a whole kitchen full of appliances.

The Cuisinart TOA-60 convection toaster oven air fryer bakes, broils, toasts and is also an air fryer. In total, the Cuisinart TOA-60 air fryer toaster oven has 7 Functions; these are Air Fry, convection baking, convection broiling, oven baking, broiling, warming and toasting.

The Cuisinart TOA-60 air fryer comes with an adjustable thermostat, 60-minute timer and auto shutoff feature. It has a toast shade selector timer that works pretty well so you can control how dark you want your toast. It is large enough to Air Fry up to 3lbs, toast 6 slices of bread, bake a 4lb chicken or 12″ pizza (11″ Pizza Stone sold separately).

Some Cuisinart TOA-60 convection toaster oven air fryer reviews focus on the controls. But, we found easy and intuitive.

If you want a second, third or twentieth opinion then read the Cuisinart TOA-60 reviews by Amazon customers and see what you think. They are pretty vocal about the Cuisinart air fryer.

Using the Cuisinart TOA-60

It also comes with an oven rack, bake pan and a basket for air frying. Cuisinart Air Fryers all use the same “Whisper Quiet Operation” system which makes them all reasonable quiet.

It seems like all four air fryer models use the same 1800-watt element. We couldn’t confirm it with the TOA-28 but event the stand along AFR-25 is an 1800-watt machine.

This is a lot more than cheaper, 1500-watt models. The Cuisinart TOA-60 dimensions are 15.50 x 16.00 x 14.00 inches and it weighs 21 pounds. It has a 0.6 cubic foot interior.

The full specifications are down the page a bit. Our Cuisinart TOA-60 review found the nonstick easy-clean interior easy to clean up. The exterior can be wiped down with a clean cloth or mild detergent.

Cuisinart TOA-65 Review

The Cuisinart TOA-65 is the top of the line and worth every penny. It does the most of any Cuisinart air fryer toaster oven and cooks the most food.

Unlike the first air fryer we bought, the Cuisinart TOA-65 fries up to 3 pounds of food at one time, That’s lots of wings for game day! It also warms at low temperature so you can proof dough or dehydrate foods. The Cuisinart TOA-65 toaster oven functions are excellent, this thing cooks anything. It has built in programs for pizza, roast, bake, broil, toast, bagel, dual cook, reheat and a warming function.

The digital display is large and easy to read. The Cuisinart TOA-65 has a lot of functions, so you probably will need to look at the instructions once or twice. However, it does have intuitive options. You can adjust the Cuisinart TOA-65, selecting presets programs and the temperature.

Cuisinart TOA-65 Low Temperature Settings

You can use the low temperature setting to slow cook, proof dough, dehydrate fruits, vegetables or meats or braise. Air Fry function and presets take the guesswork out of things like broiling vegetables, frying wings, French fries and chicken nuggets.

The temperature range goes from 80°F to 450°F, which starts lower than any oven I ever owned and goes up high enough for nearly any cooking. Like the TOA-60, the Cuisinart TOA-65 has an 0.6 cu. ft. capacity.

That is enough to air fry up to 3 pounds of food, roast a 4 lb. chicken, toast 6 bagel halves, or bake a 12″ pizza.

Cuisinart TOA-28

Like the TOA-60 and TAO-65 the Cuisinart TOA-28 is a whole set of kitchen appliances built into one, it is just much ore compact. It is best for small spaces and if you need a lot less cooking capacity. This is an important point. Don’t buy any Cuisinart toaster oven air fryer if it isn’t going to do the job. If you have a large family or host a lot of parties, buy a larger model.

The TOA-65 is 17 x 21.7 x 15.8 inches and the Cuisinart TOA-28 is only 12.5 x 15.5 x 11.5. But it packs an amazing amount into that space.

The Cuisinart TOA-28 air fryer will cook up to 2.5 lb. or food, toast 4 slices of bread or bake a 3 lb. Chicken. That may sound like a lot, but a pound is a large serving of Buffalo wings for one or two people. So, you are not going to throw your Super Bowl party with just a TOA-28. This is better for a small family or, maybe a second home or an RV where space matters a lot.

Cuisinart TOA-60 vs TOA-65

It is a little newer and much less well known than the TOA60. Like the TOA60, this Cuisinart air fryer oven has an 1800-watt motor that is pretty quiet. Our Cuisinart TOA-65 review gives the TOA65 higher marks in almost every category. With this many features and capacity, it does take some effort to master all its functions. So, break with tradition and pick up the user manual.

In a Cuisinart TOA-60 vs TOA-65 comparison, we would spend the few extra dollars and get the Cuisinart TOA-65.

Cuisinart TOA-28 Compact Air Fryer

Cuisinart TOA-28 Compact Air Fryer
The TOA-28 is a compact version of the TOA-60 but is also missing some functions settings.

One area it is a tad weak is toasting. This air fryer only has a three-shade toast timer so choose your toast light, medium or dark.

For more TOA-28 reviews click this link. You can see what hundreds of real customers say about this compact air fryer.

The Cuisinart TOA-28 air fryer has six functions. They are convection bake, convection broil, air fry, toast, bagel and the warm setting, which has more uses than you think. Like the larger models, the heat range is from “warm” to 450°f and the TOA28 has a 60-minute timer with automatic shutoff. It comes with an air fry basket, wire rack, baking pan and a crumb tray which are all easy to clean.

The Cuisinart TOA-28 is the last Cuisinart air fryer toaster oven on our list. The AFR-25 below is only an air fryer.  We like the Cuisinart TOA-28, it has most of the same functionality of the bigger models, with 6 functions and temperatures up to 450°F. Just make sure it will feed your whole gang.

Cuisinart Air Fryer Review

Cuisinart AFR-25

Unlike the last three models, the Cuisinart AFR-25 is just an air fryer. So, there is no convection baking, convection broiling, oven baking, broiling, warming or toasting. No dehydrating or proofing dough. In short, this is a (very good) one trick pony and is a good choice is you don’t do those other things or already love the appliances that do them.

The Cuisinart AFR-25 air fryer has the smaller capacity, like the TOA-28 air fryer. It will cook 2.5 lb. of food, which again is very good but mot enough for many parties. The Cuisinart AFR-25 air fryer has much simpler controls. It just has two knobs, so you really don’t need a book to learn to use it. Just turn one knob to regulate the temperature, and the other to set the timer.

Like the Cuisinart air fryer/toaster ovens above the AFR25 has an adjustable timer up to 60 minutes and the same temperature range (Warm to 450ºF). It has the same 1800-watt motor and we didn’t see any difference in the operating noise levels. Every Cuisinart air fryer operates pretty quietly.

Cuisinart AFR-25 Air Fryer Only

Cuisinart AFR-25 review air fryer model
The Cuisinart AFR-25 is a dedicated air fryer so make sure you don’t need any of the other functions the TOA models have.

The Cuisinart AFR-25 has the same brushed stainless-steel look as other Cuisinart appliances and it looks good, is durable and reasonably easy to clean. The nonstick interior and stainless-steel wipe clean with a damp cloth or mild cleaner. The AFR-25 comes with an Air Fry Basket, baking pan and a drip tray. You don’t really need to buy any accessories.

Cuisinart Air Fryer Reviews

The Cuisinart TOA-60, TOA-65 and TOA-28 are really versatile machines. They are toaster ovens, air fryers, small ovens for baking and broiling too.
