" The design features are truly amazing. Whatever features one could imagine as important and convenient, this oven has. The design team for this oven knew what they were doing. It is superbly convenient and a pleasure to use. My compliments to Breville."
November 14, 2013Love this oven
"I bought this oven because my stove oven was not working consistently. Now I rarely use my regular stove oven. I've had my oven for over 2 years and still LOVE it. With my regular oven, when preheating, I have to wait after my food is ready to cook for it to finish preheating. The Breville oven is preheated before I have finished preparing the food to be cooked. It also cooks everything much faster. I love that I can set the time and not worry about it overcooking. I highly recommend this oven and have done so with anyone who will listen. "

"I was a little leery paying almost 250.00 for a "toaster oven", but this is so much more than that. I've had the old style toaster ovens that would barely toast bread, let alone heat food. My last one was a Convection Oven that did a decent job with heating up pizza and even roasting meats, but was very inconsistent when baking breads and other tasks
This oven does it all, and does it very well. A few of the things I've done so far include:
Toast - just as good as my toaster, but takes longer than it should.
Bagels - BETTER than my toaster. May take longer, but worth the wait.
Pizza - Excellent results. crispy bottom, browned and melted toppings.
Onion Burger Buns - Much Better than expected. I was leery of using the baking option on this, because it suggests you place the rack in the lowest position. Every time I've baked bread or buns, you place the rack in the middle position. I was afraid of burning the bottoms while not browning the tops enough. Couldn't have turned out any better. I guess those "Smart Elements" really are smart and cycle on and off just right. Much more evenly baked than my previous Convection oven or my fulled sized regular oven.
Brownies - Like the buns above, I was leery of the bottoms burning using the lowest rack. Also, my previous oven burned most brownies on the middle rack. Again, these came out perfect, no burnt bottoms.
Baked Chicken Breast casserole - Amazingly juicy, yet crispy chicken, and no burning of the bottom either.
I highly recommend this oven. I have never seen an oven that heats more evenly to cook just about anything. Saves time, evenly cooks, and no need to heat up the large oven"
October 17, 2013What I expected... what I got
"About a month ago Consumer Report wrote that Breville had the best counter top oven they had ever tested. I admit that I am very skeptical of corporate advertising but I accept Consumer Report information as though it came from God him/her self.
Based on CR's recommendation I bought the Smart Oven. They were right on once again. I have been cooking almost every thing with this oven. First, up to six pieces of toast always come out perfectly. There are never surprises or disappointment using factory settings for your desired level of doneness. Frozen pizza comes out perfect, and I really do mean perfect - you might have to experiment a little because my 22 minute Kirkland frozen pizza is ready in less time. Custard pudding...perfect. Roasted chicken...perfect. French onion soup...perfect. Shrimp, fish, pork roast...also perfect. That which should be juicy comes out cooked right and juicier than expected, based on many years of cooking experience, and something I have duplicated in my standard kitchen oven only by luck.
I can't wait for Thanksgiving. I'll be doing prime rib and I already know well what a good prime rib should look and taste like when it's baked right. This year I expect it will be better. I'll be expecting perfection.
I will answer your unasked question: No, I don't (and never did) work for Breville and I am not paid by anybody for this review. I'm a retired university professor."
October 11, 2013Fantastic oven
"We've had this oven for over two years now and use it daily. It's perfect for just about everything but quiche. I've tried twice and it just doesn't work. Perfect for everything else though.
Highly recommend purchasing the bamboo cutting board to put on top if the unit will sit under a cabinet.
October 10, 2013Great Company! Great customer service!
"I love my Breville smart oven -- I had it for almost 3 years, and the buttons started not responding properly. I contacted the company to ask about repair, and they sent me a newer model, refurbished beautifully, for FREE! They even sent me a prepaid overnight FedEx label to return my old oven. The new oven came only 2 days after I sent the old oven back. Great service. The refurbished oven has a warranty too, and it looks great and works just fine! Thank you so much!"
August 19, 2013Worked Great...For a While
"This unit was purchased in Feb 2011. It worked flawlessly until Aug 2013 when it died. For no reason that I know, it just quit working. It is as if the unit is unplugged...no display and all the functions are inoperative. And yes, I verified there was power to the outlet. I researched that failure mode online and discovered it is a recurring problem. I called customer support who advised that the best they could do for me was 20% discount on a new one. I was a bit disappointed since it has a known failure mode that is clearly well documented. I know the one-warranty period has expired but I expected that a company which makes such a fine product would stand behind it. I expected better...
I gave it two stars (instead of one) because it was fantastic before it broke."

"I bought my Smart Oven from Bed Bath and Beyond several months ago. Prior to purchasing it, I researched numerous brands of ovens. The Breville Smart Oven appeared to have the features and size I was looking for. I was a little hesitant to buy it because it was much more then I was originally planning to spend but I decided to go for it. After using it for several months, it was worth every penny. It is large enough to bake casseroles, pies or pizzas. Food browns evenly. There are no hot or burned spots. It produces the prettiest piece of toast I've ever seen-evenly toasted. It is also easy to use. Cooking functions are preprogrammed but can easily customized. I love my Breville and unhesitatingly recommend it."
July 26, 20132nd Smart Oven
"We purchased the Smart Oven 800XL back in 2010 and have used it almost daily. The oven has been a champ all along. I only had one minor problem which I wish I'd contacted Breville with. The bright blue LCD screen became very dim and almost impossible to read. This happened maybe a little after a year from our purchase date, so I never really contacted Breville because I was surely past the warranty period. Anyhow, the oven operated flawlessly. We love our Breville, but after recent kitchen remodel, we had all new appliances and I really wanted a screen I could easily read in any lighting condition, so I purchased another Smart Oven. I donated my "old" one to my mother-in-law who was more than happy to have it. I have noticed some changes in the new Breville as compared to the old. The lighting on the LCD panel is now more white with a slight blue tint. On our older model, the LCD backlighting was a very definite blue color. On the new model, I've noticed it is now MUCH easier to read the selection choices with this brighter back light. Also, when then oven is in operation, the backlight color changes to orange. This definitely provides a good contrast that makes it easy to read, but it also helps delineate when the oven has been actually turned on. I like that feature! As far as operation, nothing really has changed with the controls. This is probably one of the most versatile appliances we own and I'm glad to have a new one. I forgot how stunning this appliance is when it's brand new! My goal with this one will be to keep the glass door from becoming discolored due to use! Let's put it this way, if I didn't love this oven, I'd have never replaced it with the same unit. It's fantastic!"
July 18, 2013Great Oven!
"After using a smaller, lower-powered, lower-tech oven for about a dozen years, we purchased "The Smart Oven" [BOV800XL/A] in February 2013, largely because we needed a good complement to the one built-in conventional oven in our kitchen. So far we have been very impressed with our new Smart Oven's performance (Though it is early days yet). Based on past experience, we placed a custom cut-down sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil on top of the slide-in-out crumb tray at the bottom of the oven with a view toward keeping the oven as clean as possible [Caution: Aluminum foil is a conductor of electricity!]. So far the only gripe is pretty trivial: We read the manuals for items like this very carefully with a view toward safe operation, the best performance, and a long life; so far, the only negative comment we have about the oven concerns the fifth bullet from the top of the left-hand column on manual page 6 (Important Safeguards) where it is stated: "The installation of a residual current device (safety switch) is recommended to provide additional safety protection when using electrical appliances. It is advisable that a safety switch with a rated residual operation current not exceeding 30mA be installed in the electrical circuit supplying the appliance." I learned from my call to our large local electrical hardware store (supplies licensed electricians in the San Francisco Bay Area) that no employee or manager in the store had ever heard of a device with the manual's description. When I think of electrical safety devices that need to be in the circuit for an 1800 watt appliance, I think of an electrical outlet (with a high enough amperage rating of course) protected by either a GFI or some sort of surge protector. When I called the Breville CS line, I learned that the manual "had been translated from Australian English" and that, in the US what was needed was indeed a GFI-protected circuit or a surge protector. I suggested that the on-line and print manuals be updated to include this explanation for US users. Otherwise, using our new Smart Oven had been a great pleasure so far!"
