the CSB ( Cuisinart Comi Oven ) makes the finest toast ive ever tasted.
you can read about that and other things is does above.
the BV-XL makes a type of toast that's more 'baked' than intensely 'heated' then the elements turn off
think what an old style toasted used to do : blast away until the desired color is achieved then pop-up
the BV has some sort of logic chip that varies the intensity of the heat source near the end and gives in my
opinion a sort of baked toast : on the dry side. you may like this or not.
I cant see what the cuisinart toaster offers other than it might be bigger than the CSteamBoy
the CSB does not fit a 1/4 sheet pan, the BV-XL does
all the smaller expensive toaster ovens seem way over priced to me based on there size and what they do for that $$
the CSB does things no other small appliance can do.
read through the thread.
I was very surprised at the Steam Results, which I wanted to explore, and very late to the CSB fantastic toaster Fx.
you cannot put the CSB under a cabinet, or the steam released will destroy that cabinet. that's my opinion on placement.
