Inside, you can comfortably fit a family-sized chicken or a small turkey. The interior dimensions of the Oster TSSTTVDGXL-SHP is approximately 15.5″ (W) x 15.5 (D) x 9.5″ (H), so it can accommodate a 9″ x 13″ pan.

There are 7 cooking functions bundled together with this unit – toast, bake, convection, broil, pizza, warm and defrost. The controls are digital with the display screen right at the top of the panel. Below the function keys are the timer and temperature arrow buttons. The timer runs up to a maximum of 90 minutes. Once the countdown is completed, the oven will beep a few times to warn you that your food is ready. It will also automatically shut off the heating elements then.

You can speed up your cooking with the turbo convection cooking function. With a temperature range of 200°F to 450°F, you can also adjust your heat level at 25°F increments for more precise cooking. There are 2 rack positions inside the oven and you can do multi-level cooking to save time. Unfortunately, the rack does not auto-eject when the door is opened. You will have to pull it out manually.

The Stop/Cancel button allows you to cancel your cooking cycle at any time. There is an internal removable crumb tray and easy clean interior wall for fast clean up after cooking is done.

Should You Buy The Oster TSSTTVDGXL-SHP Extra Large Toaster Oven?

Pros
  1. oster tssttvdgxl-shpLarge capacity – Not many toaster ovens have such a large interior to accommodate meals for a bigger family. Many are 6-slice toaster ovens which are not enough to cook bigger servings, especially when there are guests to be fed. The Oster TSSTTVDGXL-SHP is one of the very few that can fit 14 slices of bread or two 16″ pizzas in one batch.
  2. Two racks – There are two oven racks included in the package when most other models would require you to purchase it separately. The two racks make it possible to do multi-level cooking simultaneously.
  3. Cooks evenly and quickly – The even heating makes food come out nicely cooked and tasty. Food still remain moist rather than dried out with the heat. The unit gets hot enough as per your temperature setting and heats up quickly. It is functional and effective as many buyers have attested in their online reviews, that it can take over almost all of your big oven’s tasks.
  4. Defrost function – The ability to defrost your frozen stuff is another great feature that this toaster oven has. You will no longer need to use your microwave for this task. Very few toaster ovens actually has this function with the Oster TSSTTVMNDG being one of the few apart from this model here.
Cons
  1. 90-minute timer – This means you will need to reset the timer if your recipes demand a longer cooking time. It is a minor inconvenience but a lot of models actually have a 2-hour timer for a slightly longer timer setting. One example is the Cuisinart TOB-135.
  2. Care needed when opening the door – The door slams down onto the counter if you are not careful. There is no hinge to support it once it is opened wide and hence, you will need to be careful when opening the glass door each time.
  3. Short cord – This is a very common complaint from buyers. The cord is slightly over 2 feet long only while the the appliance itself is already 21″ wide. So, if you have your power outlet on the wrong side, it can be a stretch to get it to reach the socket. In other words, you are limted as to where you can place this appliance in your kitchen due to the short cord. However, as we understand it, all toaster ovens do have such a short cord due to safety regulations.

This Oster digital toaster oven is not for everyone. The size is both a plus and a drawback, depending on what you are looking for in a countertop oven. If you are thinking of doing away with your big oven, then this might be a good replacement. But if you are only cooking simple meals for a person or two and you are also looking for a unit that can toast well, then this is way too large for your needs. For this, there are plenty of smaller but good toaster ovens around that you can look at.

Hence, the Oster TSSTTVDGXL-SHP extra large digital toaster oven is worth a buy for those who need the additional capacity. For the size, it is not too expensive and there are also not many models in the market to choose from for such a big-sized unit.
