Great 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!"

Love My Smart Oven

"I have had several inexpensive toaster convection ovens, and have not used them, because they were not efficient. Finally we decided to take the recommendation of Consumer Reports and bought the Breville Super Oven. It is now the most used cooking appliance in our kitchen. I am so pleased, we'll be purchasing two more for our married daughters this coming Christmas. It is a quality product that is truly an asset in the kitchen, especially for just two people. Thank you Breville!"

My most used kitchen appliance

"I have only used my full sized oven a handful of times during the three years that I have owned my smart oven. This handy little workhorse has more than earned its place on my kitchen counter. This is saying a lot, because I live in an apartment and counter space is at a premium. I use the oven nearly every day and have never been disappointed by its performance. I am not a fan of microwaving foods; to me, it throws off the flavor and texture of various foods. With the smart oven, there is no need. It takes a bit of extra time, but the results are worth it. And, it doesn't heat up my apartment the way that a large oven does. If the thing was to croak tomorrow, I'd shed some tears and run out to get another."

Smart Oven

"I have only had mt oven fow a few weeks and love it. I rated it a five, but would rate it a ten if it had an oven light. Now I look at the food cooking with a flashlight since my kitchen light is not that strong. The other thing that I would like is a chart that shows for different types of food if the convection should be on or off. I noticed in the recipes that for cheese cake convection should be off. It would be nice to know this type of information for a list of foods, pies, cakes etc. etc."

I love my Breville Oven

"This oven is probably used more than my regular oven! It is a great product and cooks evenly. One of the best bridal gifts I ever received!"

Love it!

"I've had this oven 3 yrs and LOVE it, LOVE it, LOVE it!
Have owned 4 other brands, however this one is the best.
Rarely use my standard big oven."

Breville Smart Oven

"As much as we loved our new Smart Oven it just stopped working. We checked the plug, breakers, etc. and it is clearly a problem with the oven. It will not turn on. Disappointing that such a new and beautifully designed with great functionality could stop working for no apparent reason. Very disappointing."

BOV800XL #2

"This is my second Breville oven (I cried when the first one died two weeks ago). It was only a year and a half old and, considering the price, I had expected it to last much longer. In the past two weeks I purchased and returned two Oster and one Food Network oven. None of them would heat to the recommended 450 for initial set-up. My new Breville did (five minutes after the preheat signaled it was ready).

I am so totally spoiled by the performance of my previous Breville that I couldn't tolerate any of the other brands. The only thing that worries me is that I am a partially retired teacher and I can't afford a pricey new oven every other year.

Excuse me, I'm going to go bake my grandchildren some brownies!"

Outstanding product

"Our fourth oven and without a doubt blows the others away! The only time that our full size stove is used is to heat liquids. This is one of the best purchases that we have made."

Pumpkin Pie

"I just got my oven a week ago and have been using it daily. All I get is perfect results. At first I thought the size was a bit small, but it's very deep and handles everything I want so far. Tonight I tried a pumpkin pie. There were no instructions, so I placed the pie in a glass pie plate on the first level shelve, and turned on the oven at 425 for 15 minutes, then 40 minutes at 350 without preheating. I did this to better cook the bottom of the crush with the healing element glowing in pre-heat. I have never seen a pumpkin pie come out so perfect. Usually I have to cover the crust edges so it doesn't burn, but the entire pie and the crust were perfect.

I'm so pleased with this oven that I'm now totally spoiled. It's just too easy to use and a blessing to own and use. If more people knew how good this oven is and how much nicer it is than using range oven, everyone would want one, and they've all love it as I do. Thanks for a great product.

PS 1800 watts is awesome because the oven heats up very quickly and is ready for use in a few minutes time."
