June 30, 2011fabulous piece of kitchen equipment
"Just purchased the BOV650XL. This is a beautifully engineered piece of equipment that performs exactly as promised. Although it is expensive, as far as I'm concerned, it's definitely worth the money. The first attraction for me was the easy-to-pull-out crumb tray. I make all my own bread which tends to be "crummier" than store versions. Cleaning my older toaster ovens meant standing on my head wrestling with drop trays and watching all the toaster's guts fall into the sink just to get the crumbs out. The Breville is so easy to clean I can do it every day if I want to.
Although I bought this for its toasting capability (which is fabulous), I think it's going to retire my two big ovens. I've been firing them both up to bake dishes for 2 people and to heat plates (which in our 58 degree winter house is important!). Looks like the Breville will be able to do 95% of my baking and plate heating. In fact if I make my bread and pizzas a little smaller it will be doing all my baking. And my microwave is going to be miffed as well as no more reheating (and getting soggy pizza)in that!
So I could not be happier with this product. It is a fabulous piece of kitchen equipment that any serious cook will appreciate. Yes, it's a bit bigger than the average toast-oven but it's worth rearranging your kitchen as I did to accommodate it. Yes, it's more expensive but you really do get what you pay for.
I also want to compliment Breville's customer support which was very prompt with some pre-sale questions I had about cord length and a post-sale question about finding the serial number for product registration. The customer service person was great which influenced my decision to buy. All in all I am just tickled pink with this product!

"I am loving my Breville, I wish I had bought the larger size. It is truly the best thing since slice bread, I reheat, bake, roast, broil, and toast in it. Once you reheat food, like fries, sandwiches, fish, and chicken, you will never want to place anything else in the microwave. I have a Butcher block table that I bought and it is has the center stage all by itself. I did not have anywhere else to store another small appliance and the Butcher block table is just the right thing for it, and I have extra storage space under it as well.
My friend came over and said, oh, you have a toaster over, and I let her know this was not some old toaster over, it was much more than that, I actually got offended that she called my Breville a toaster oven.
It is worth the price, the extra space it takes up, and I love that I can cook what i want and when it is complete it automatically turns off. The Breville gives recommended times and settings to cook various foods.
Now if I can only get it to do my prepping : )"
April 12, 2011Smaller is better
"I second the Web Diva, March 18, 2011, review. The BOV650XL looks marvelous. I even downloaded and read the manual and watched the video on your website. But, it is too big. I am searching for a replacement for my 13 year old Black & Decker, 14 3/4 X 10 X 7 1/2. It has worked great for toast and baking potatoes, etc. However, the upper element has failed. For a replacement, I have consulted Consumer Reports, looked online, and gone physically to 9 local stores, looking for one that will fit in our kitchen. Most of them are far too large. I also prefer a button to push for toast. Most models have dials which make clicking noises. We brought home one about the same size as BOV650XL, a Cuisinart ($80). Alas, the footprint and height are too large. And its color, black, made it the dominant object in our kitchen. We prefer white or silver. While I would prefer a lower cost, at this point, I'm even willing to pay $100 or $150 for your quality and reliability -- if the oven is small enough. So, for now, I guess I'll buy a small piece of junk, listen to the clicking noises, and wait until you produce a really compact toaster oven."
March 17, 2011Still too big - and too expensive
"It's a great toaster oven, IF you have the space for it -- I don't, but a friend does and loves it, and I've seen it work at her house -- but it's still too big and costs too much. Specifically, there's no way you can call this a compact toaster oven: a truly compact toaster oven by definition *can't* accommodate a 12-inch pizza because a compact oven is no more than 9 to 10 inches in depth. In fact, a 9-inch depth is all I can fit in my kitchen, and that's the depth of a classic toaster oven of years past (e.g., the old style Black & Deckers, not the new ones). Moreover, it's ridiculous that a good compact toaster oven should cost more than $100! If Breville really wants me for a customer, it will make a toaster oven with the quality and reliability of the BOV650XL but with a smaller footprint and a considerably lower price tag -- or I won't be buying one from them.
Dear Web Diva,
Your comments and feedback are greatly appreciated. Your great suggestions will be given to our Engineers for future consideration. We look forward to having you as a consumer and thank you for having our products in mind.
January 31, 2011I've used this almost everyday since I bought it last spring.
"I've gone through several "Toaster Ovens" during my lifetime. I threw them away because they took up more counter space than they were worth.
The Breville is a fantatic appliance that I use almost everyday. It heats quickly. Cooks perfectly. The temperature is always accurate and it's faster than the big oven. It makes life so easy when time in the kitchen is so very limited.
November 5, 2010Great product!
"I just love this new toaster oven! It cooks everything quick and although I don't use it for toast, it does toast great. My other toaster oven either burnt it or not enough. I would have gotten the bigger oven but it was too big for my counter. This one fits perfect."
October 7, 2010Precisely!
"As Joanne stated, this unit cooks quickly and precisely.
On a lark, I threw my oven thermometer into the 650 when it "beeped" 425 for pizza insertion (not that it matters that much for pizza...).
Thank you, Breville: My thermometer registered EXACTLY 425 F !
I cook a lot, so believe me, accurate temperature control in contemporary ovens is like hitting a basket from the half-court line in basketball, or kicking 60 yard field goals in US football.
Kudos to the folks who engineered this baby.
PS: LOVE the ability to warm serving plates on top. Priceless!
September 26, 2010Love this oven!
"Compact oven is a great description. No doubt excels the toaster oven and am so impressed with the cooking functions. Thank you!
August 5, 2010Awesome
"Greatest compact oven ever...very fast and fuctional!!"
July 24, 2010SMARTEST OVEN--EVER!
"I don't know where to start with this compact oven! I have not ONE complaint. I love the size, the way that it heats up, the time frame that it heats..... everything about it. This Compact Smart Oven is stainless steel, so it has a very modern look and its technology is beyond any of the other brands. I've had mine for a couple of months and it is amazing! It takes no time to cook food. The microwave is no longer an option (unless using it for tea/coffee) in my household because this oven takes the cake on heating, re-heating, and making sure the food tastes fresh! The handle doesn't EVER get hot which is a bonus! The only 'con' (which really isn't that big of a deal because I am sure to stay within the area of the kitchen) that I have with the oven is of course, what another person mentioned.... the timer ring is not that loud. The pros.... The pre-set timers are amazing and I like the different shelf levels to sit certain foods on. Food comes out evenly cooked, always!
I HIGHLY recommend this. It'll be an addition to one of the best investments you've ever bought. I felt a little guilty spending so much for a "toaster oven" but for this, it was SO worth it! My first time purchasing a Breville item and I will purchase another item in the future!"
