It takes longer too toast bread that has less sugar content, so with no-knead, I let it go with my normal setting, then re-start it when that's done so I can get more color.

Someone here said that he/she felt that toast in the BSO was more like baked than toasted.

After giving it some thought, I actually agree.  I think it's because the elements are located so far from the center rack.

Still, it's very convenient and not really all that much different than in a toaster.

""   I think it's because the elements are located so far from the center rack. ""

 

its also because the elements do not stay on 'full-blast' until you get to the degree of 'toasty-ness'  you like

 

that's what made me think of 'baked'

 

Ive had the medium BV, and now the XL

 

to my taste they make mediocre toast

 

the CuisinatSteamOven  make the finest toast ive ever had

 

using the same substrate :  my home made machine bread and commercial EM's

Oh, I didn't think of that, the elements not staying on.  That does make a lot of sense.

More and more, I'm thinking that when it comes to replacing my BSO I need to test drive the Cuisinart.

Too bad there's not room for both.
