Review BLACK and DECKER Countertop Convection Toaster Oven CTO6335S
The convection feature circulates hot air allowing faster and more even cooking results. The temperature can be set to any degree up to 450 in 5 degree increments. The manual is very clear regarding cooking times for different foods; it is advised to adhere to these instructions in order to perfect the cooking process. There are presets that can be used, and the times can be changed if you see fit. Like the previous unit though, caution should be used as parts of the door handle can get pretty hot and possibly pose a burn hazard.

- Fits a 12-inch pizza
- 120-Minute Timer

Black & Decker CTO6335S Review of Pros and Cons
You will surely be satisfied with the performance of this oven, its ease of use being one of its most valuable. Its controls are extremely intuitive, and, as any Black and Decker CTO6335S review will show, this is great news for users who do not care much about or do not have the time to read the instructions that usually come with any product of this type.
The four heating elements provide optimum and even interior heating and cooking. There are shields for each individual element, meant to protect it from breaks, cracks, and food.
Convection cooking allows food to be cooked faster, using lower temperatures than with traditional cooking, which means that more vitamins, enzymes and other nutrients remain in the food and get into your body.
The automatic timer has a generous range of settings that can cover up to 120 minutes, which is enough time to cook almost anything.
No Black & Decker CTO6335S toaster oven review would be complete without mentioning the preset cooking functions, which are very convenient to use for anyone. You can choose from six such functions and can start cooking in a minute, without worrying about adjusting further settings.
Last but not least, the removable crumb tray located on the front of the device, just under the door, is great for cleaning the device. It can be easily removed, and all the mess accumulated there can be cleaned up. Thanks to its design, the crumb tray will not let anything drop on your countertop, so you do not have to worry about cleaning the area around the oven too frequently.
When it comes to cons, you may find a Black & Decker CTO6335S review or two complaining about the door of the oven, which has no spring attached and could slam onto the counter. On the other hand, a spring attached to the door could make it slam onto the body of the oven itself and could led to glass breaking, which is also something to avoid. You will just have to be a little more attentive when opening and closing the oven door.
You will also notice that the LCD display screen is not backlit and may be difficult to read when there is no external lighting, but you are not going to start cooking in the dark, are you?
As for the too quiet sound of the Black & Decker CTO6335S Countertop Convection Oven alert, you will come to appreciate it when your loved ones are sleeping or working and you do not want to disturb them.
A very high mark was given to the crumb tray system which, as shown by almost every Black & Decker CTO6335S review, is very easy to handle and prevents crumbles from being caught in the oven’s door like it happens with other devices.
A convection cooking oven is a useful tool in the kitchen of any household, as it allows faster cooking and provides healthier food than traditional cooking, which needs oil and longer preparation times that destroy nutrients. To conclude this Black & Decker CTO6335S review, this is the device that will allow you to cook healthy delicious meals faster and with less effort.
