Review: Cuisinart TOB 195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven

Hello, Everybody!  I’m Heller Lucy and this is the Cuisinart Tob-195 Ulis has a beautiful handle. Because I will practice the best countertop convection oven review about Cuisinart Tob-195 for everybody.

Overview about Cuisinart Tob-195

It’s very wide and it makes easy to open the oven. You notice how the rack came out? Automatically when it’s in the middle position. It will actually extend the rack for you. So you don’t have to worry about? When you’re putting a pan in there the other thing. You’ll notice is along the side. There are numbers those are your rack positions and those are really important. Because we give you different directions on where to put the rack depending on what you’re cooking.

It’s point eight feet cubic feet in size and you’ll notice: it’s a very generous interior. It takes six slices of bread or any type of item you’re going to toast along with up to a 12-inch pizza or a four-pound piece of poultry or-or meat the other thing. That’s really great about this oven like I mentioned is it has a ton of great functions and you’re going to notice. When I touch the style the functions start to display themselves.

The first being toast bagel bake broil roast pizza then you have leftovers and keep warm. So first I’m going to show you the rotisserie function and you’ll notice: the first that comes up is the one that says rotisserie chicken then. There’s duck and when you rotate it shows you one. That’s blinking as the function. You’re on meat is next and then the last one is custom and the custom function is the one that.

We’re going to use today when I do these beautiful Cornish hens. So the other one is that you can use as convection. Which I’m going to show you they persist off and on again. So it clears so convection and you notice how it comes up with bake. Because you’re going to use convection on the bake setting and the automatic limb is up for 50 and then you can change the time or temperature so the other thing.

I want to show you this is the best part about this oven. It has a ton of presets so for instance when we turn the dial like I mentioned toast is the first item that comes up. You press the button in the middle and it comes up with shade five and five to six slices. You can change the shade and then when you decide what item you want it to be on like say for you press the button again that actually sets the shade setting and then the next item is to decide how many slices?

You have five to six one to two or in the middle three to four and you press that again and then you press Start and that’s what engages the oven. So let’s look at some of the other functions. So I’m going to turn the dial. we’re going to go to bake and it comes up at 350. We can choose any temperature from 150 to 450. So let’s just pick 200 picks 200 and then you can pick your time anywhere from 1 minute to 2 hours and this is also where you can engage your convection function.

You’ll notice it’s on 200 for 2 hours like I said and it’s going through the preheating function now one of the other things. I’m going to show you is pizza and the reason I’m picking pizzas. Because it’s one of the number one items consumers use a toaster oven. So we’re going to pick pizza. Because there’s a lot of great functionality. It’s on 400 but pick 400 and then notice it says 8-inch pizza 10-inch pizza 12-inch pizza or 6-inch pizza.

It just as you roll the dial it rolls around. Today we’re going to pick 12 then you’ll notice the next thing is you see a snowflake flashing that snowflake is? If you’re going to put a frozen pizza in there. So you can either pick frozen or fresh. I picked fresh and then you can actually pick the time that you want to cook the pizza for and hit start and I pick 21 minutes today at 400 degrees. So what’s going to happen?

It’s going to go through a preheat function. It’s going to let you know it’s preheated then you put yours at the end. It’ll start counting down the cooking time so one of the other things. I want to show you today is that it has a crumb tray in the front. So it makes it really easy to clean you just remove this. You know you should do it every once in a while make sure you keep it clean.

Some my Advice for You

That’s really important and then even though it has a really generous interior. It’s really easy to keep clean easy clean interior. So let’s look at some of the other items that come with your oven first to have your baking tray here and your rack going to show you how to use that in a few minutes and this is your rotisserie spit. You can also show you how to use that in a few minutes these are adjustable.

You just turn this nut and you can slide this up and down depending on where you need to place it. When you’re on basin your meat this also is a nice handle that helps you take the rotisserie spit out of the oven. After your food is cooked that’s really important it makes it really easy to handle. The next thing that we’re going to do is? I’m going to actually show you how to use your rotisserie spit and put it in the oven and cook these beautiful Cornish game hens.

So one of the important things to remember when you’re using any kind of rotisserie is that you want your meat to be uniform in size and the reason is important. Because the more uniform it is the more evenly. It will cook especially when you’re putting it on the spit. So these are two little Cornish game hens like I mentioned I really like cooking these. Because it’s not something that you’re going to cook every day.

But it’s great to make a great presentation everybody gets their own little Cornish game hen. It’s great for two people, so what we’re going to do is? I have this butchers twine here and I pre-cut it and I also want to show you that, what we did in the back? You’ll notice we turn the wings under and I like to do this. Because it makes for a good final presentation. You just turn the wings under and it keeps it compact.

So what we’re going to do is take the butcher’s twine? And I pre-cut this and we’re going to I like to do it this way loop it around the back of the chicken and tuck it underneath, then what I’m going to do is? Go to pull the legs up now sometimes I like to this is my own technique. So don’t be checking those cooking books and saying I did it wrong, but I like to just tie this up like this and I’m going to make a knot like.

So get it nice and secure what I’m going to do is? I’m going to cut the excess off. I’m going to do the same thing with the next one doing this one slightly differently underneath. I like to do this come across the front sometimes. I like to go around the leg once like this to get it tight depending on you know how cooperative your chicken is? Don’t worry about if it’s not perfect. I don’t just go to get it really nice and secure little bundles together then what we’re going to do is?

We’re going to put them on the spit. What do I like to do just so it’s much easier for you to deal with is? I like to get this one piece locked down in advance. So you’re not sliding two pieces across your rotisserie. This way it’s completely secure. You’re going to go through the middle of the chicken out the other end and just press it really tight. I’m going to do these like this today and you’ll see how nice and compact they are and then what we’re going to do is?

We’re going to put this other one in here and slide it onto the bar and you would need to get past that little notch. Because and you can go further if you really want to get it tight and they just twist until it’s really tight and the reason is that now see how nice and form and compact and tight that is? They’re not going to slide around. Because you’re going to need to get this into the oven on a notch.

So it’s stable and then this pointy end is also going to go into the oven and this notch is going to rest on another bar. So what I’m going to do now is? I’m going to wash my hands and I’m going to come back and put the chicken in the oven.  I wash my hands and now what we’re going to do is? I’m going to put this in the oven and then set it shows you how to set it so what I’m going to do is open the oven?  

I’m going to put the rack on in the first position like so and this pointy end right here is going to go into this side of the oven in this little hole here and then it’s going to rest on the bar on this side now what I’m going to do is? I’m going to put this baking pan in is that’s gonna catch your rotisserie drips going to close the oven. You’re going to go to roast press rotisserie and it’s flashing for this item.

You want to pick custom so you can set the custom setting and we’re going to put this at 425 and we’re going to set it on the custom setting 40 minutes. We’re going to hit start and you’re going to notice that I’m just going to open it. So you can see: It’s actually spinning very gently on the rotisserie and what you’re going to do is? We’re going to actually let that bake on the rotisserie function and you’re going to know.

When it’s done when you pierce the UM thigh and you have clear running juices or if you prefer. It’s always good to use a meat thermometer. If you’re not sure. If it’s done or not so let’s let that finish cooking when we come back. I’m going to show you how beautiful it looks? So there we have it our beautifully rotisserie Cornish game hen. Finally, don’t forget this oven has exact heat.
