Pro: Compact. Con: Not as good as some others
on January 25, 2007
I bought Oster electric knife after using a bulky Toastmaster electric knife with top handle at my mother-in-law's (not sure about exact model, but it looks similar to the Toastmaster Electric Carving Knife 6110).
I had good experience using the Toastmaster and I liked the compactness of the Oster knife. I also liked that Oster came with a storage case (the bonus fork was not a deciding factor for me. As a matter of fact, I wish it was not included, so that the storage box could be smaller).
The Toastmaster performed great cutting London Broil into nice uniform slices; I expected the same from Oster, but it did not perform as well. Due to it compact handle and lighter weight Oster knife was harder to keep straight and it required more pressure than the Toastmaster.
Oster has nice looks and it is NOT a bad product, but, compared to the Toastmaster knife I used, the performance was not as good.
