"While I am an avid Amazon buyer I bought my Breville at Williams Sonoma
I am a fan of Breville and own several of their appliances.
Bought this compact smart oven and exchanged it two weeks later for the full size model, heres why
The compact oven has two major design flaws:
1. the rack has no stops on the travel, the rack keeps on pulling out until it falls out, we all expect and count on stops, virtually everything has a stop at the end of its travel! so this is a surprise and being hot its scary as well, a hot oven rack with hot food on it sliding uncontrollably out of an oven, not cool at all.
The issue is made worse still because the inside of the oven is non stick and very slippery, thus the rack slides easily and uncontrollably having virtually zero resistance.
2. the feet are designed poorly, they do not keep the oven firmly on the counter, and because the unit is light it moves uncontrollably when you open the door, not a good scene.
The user is left balancing the oven on the counter to prevent the machine pivoting while opening the door, then balancing the food / tray on the rack and the rack from falling out, all at hundreds of degrees, just a bizarre oversight in design.
However, the unit does cook really well.
I returned the compact $179. model and bought the full size, $249. model, happy to say this model has the stops on the racks and is designed so it does not move around the counter when opening and closing the door.
The full size is an awesome machine, I suspect these where built by two different design teams, they are absolutely not the same machine in two different sizes as one might infer from the naming protocol.
Breville should consider recalling this compact model and modifying stops into it."
May 19, 2013A Farewell to Microwaves
"I had been considering a convection oven for some time because of the shortcomings of microwaves. Having an extremely active day to day life traditional cooking is not always an option, but food from a microwave has always yielded this ethereal, somewhat unpalatable result. I bought the Breville oven with the notion that I would do a side by side comparison....with the less practical unit going into the kitchen cabinets or a closet. In short after using the Breville oven for the first time I ruled a "no contest" and the microwave is gone. Food tastes like food again....the sensation of heat feels natural and organic, and everything I put in the unit comes out with the taste and texture it should have. The few extra minutes it takes to heat food is of no consequence. and am sure that anyone discovering the advantages of this product would feel the same."
January 5, 2013Great small oven
"I have had this oven for about a month and love it. It is perfect for 2 people. Love the fact that I can bake potatoes in it and use the large oven for large roasts and turkeys. I also love the toast/bagel settings! I never wanted a toaster oven because I have had them in the past and they were awful. This is certainly not a "toaster oven", but a counter top oven. Two friends that have seen it, bought one. I would highly recommend this product to everyone."
January 5, 2013Awesome!
"This is our first Smart Oven. We absolutely love it! It is so easy to use. We can fit a frozen pizza in it and it cooks perfectly. The grandkids thought it was cool. The electrical plug has a hole in it...perfect for our arthritic fingers. "
December 23, 2012Fantastic
"This is the most fantastic appliance I have ever owned. It was ordered after hearing about it on America's Test Kitchen program. I have used it for toast, baked pumpkin pie, appetizers, breakfast rolls....it will do everything. I would highly recommend it. It bakes much better than my big oven. Can see that the oven on my electric stove is going to be sitting idle! Thanks Breville!"
November 14, 2012Love this Oven!!
"We've had this oven for nearly a year and I absolutely LOVE it! I actually cook in this more than our regular full size oven, which I hate using because it heats up the kitchen. I really like that it has different settings for toast, bagels, baking, broiling, etc. I especially like that you can set whether what you're cooking is frozen or not. We have two younger children, so fixing things like waffles, chicken nuggets, and fish sticks is an absolute breeze. We've cooked frozen pizzas in it several times and they come out wonderfully (the big oven never cooked evenly and the edges would get burned). I had never broiled anything before, but now we make melts for lunch and it works great, although do have to move the rack to the middle position because we pile the melts so high they hit the top burners.
I was worried at first about the price tag - we never paid so much for a toaster. But my husband asked how much I thought we'd use it (to justify the price). We use it literally every day, so that we have more than gotten our money's worth out of it. I wish it did come with an extra wire rack, so they could be cycled through for cleaning. But no worries - I've added that and the cutting board to my Christmas list. :)
If you do anything more than make toast, I would highly recommend this oven. You won't be disappointed!

"I just bought the Compact Smart Oven and love it. It is so easy to use.
I had company over and made salmon using the recipe in the book...it cooked it to perfection in 15 minutes.
I owned a DeLonghi for many years and was reluctant to change brands until my neighbor told me about this brand which she bought at Bed, Bath & Beyond. This one is so much better and has so many more functions. I love the pull out tray at the bottom which makes it easy to clean the crumbs that drop. I am sorry I didn't buy this oven sooner.
February 26, 2012Great product
"After finally tosing out my old T.O. I bought the Breville compact.
Great addtion to my kitchen. Perfect size for me.
Pros: looks great

First time I pulled out grate, it fell out, but now I have
a handle on it. Hasn't happened since
Totally recommend this product.
December 30, 2011Cautiously hopeful this one will keep working...
"Save your box, your receipt and be sure to register your oven with Breville. And buy it from a vendor with a good return policy so that you don't have to mail the oven to Breville.
I chose this oven because of the Consumer Reports reviews. However, my first BOV650XL oven worked for less than 12 hours--just long enough to perform the one-time-start-up function before the coils refused to heat. Bells/timers worked, but no heat on any setting. No troubleshooting instructions in the manual. Unplugging and hoping it would "reset" didn't help. I returned it to Bed Bath & Beyond and got a new one. This one is still working, but I've only used it four times. I've read numerous complaints on various web sites about this same problem, or very similar....both for brand new units, and units that are several months old. So I'm not throwing out the box or the receipt.
December 1, 2011Breville Compact Oven
"I love this oven with its even heat and depth for cooking and use it on a regular basis. I know I will use it for roasts and steaks as well a for toasting.
My one recommendation is that the tray be redesigned to catch in the oven so that it doesn't pull out all of the way and fall out. i've had two instances of burning myself trying to catch it falling from the oven while turning over a steak. In order to reach the steak, the tray has to be pulled out far enough, and both times it fell from the oven, steak and all, onto the open door and I had to catch it."
