This article is a review of the Breville Smart Oven
Countertop ovens don’t only save you time, but they’re also energy efficient, thus saving you electricity AND money. However, choosing a countertop oven should be done carefully.
They come in different sizes and shapes, but they also come equipped with a lot of useful features and functions that might make you forget about the standard oven you’re used to.
The Breville Smart Oven Air is one of the best countertop ovens you can get on the market right now. Breville specializes in kitchen appliances, and they’re a leading brand when it comes to the countertop ovens.
I’ve mentioned how countertop ovens come equipped with a bunch of features and functions, but Breville still always amazes me with the number of helpful and useful things it comes with. It’s specifically designed to help you get the best out of your recipes without a need for a standard oven.
Breville’s quality isn’t limited to countertop ovens only, they excel in everything they do!
This Breville Smart Oven Air comes with a unique feature, it’s the Element IQ. It features 6 heating elements that are independent so they can be moved inside of the countertop oven.
That way, you get to place the heating elements exactly where you need the most power. They’re located both above and below the food you’re cooking.
Each element adjusts to the type of cooking you’re doing, and therefore, the Breville Smart Oven Air oven delivers a precise and stable cooking temperature at the right time.
Whatever the meal you’re cooking, you’ll always get it perfectly right and evenly cooked, without a doubt!
Breville Smart Oven Air Frying
In case you didn’t know, most countertop ovens heat and cook the food through heating elements but also as an air heater.
Therefore, the Breville countertop oven comes with an air frying function on top of the Element IQ feature. Such high heat is made to maximize airflow and will make sure that the food you’re cooking ends up crispy.
Better Cooking Control
For even better cooking control, Breville has added two-speed fans that will allow you more cooking control. You get to choose between regular and super fan speed.
When you choose a super fan speed, it will move more air which will ensure that the food you’re cooking is cooked faster. It will even improve the roasting of the food.
This Breville countertop oven has a capacity of 1 cubic foot, which is exactly 16″ x 13.5″ 7″. It’s good enough to roast a 14 lb turkey, but also fit 12 cup muffin tray, or 9 slices of a toast.
It also comes with multi racking option that allows you to use the space in the countertop oven the way you want.
You can fit up to 4 racks at the same time and cook at all of them at the same time. The interior is that big, and heating elements definitely don’t stand in a way.
Breville has featured a PID temperature control which is made to reduce overshoot of temperature. It now gives you a precise and stable temperature between 80 F and 480 F.
Temperature is chosen by a big rolling button that is very smooth and responsive. You won’t have problems choosing your right temperature.
For quick food cooking and baking, you will have 13 programmed settings that you can use at any given moment. They also cover a variety of most common cooking modes.
You will be able to choose between toast 9 slices, broil, bagel, slow cook, cookies, reheat, roast, pizza, warm, bake, airfry, proof, and dehydrate.
That will save you lots of time, and it will make choosing settings easier. If you have something in mind that’s already programmed – just choose the setting.
A good thing which I really like is how this Breville countertop oven comes with a bunch of useful accessories which doesn’t only save you money, but also time and the energy of not having to get them separately.
You will get everything that you need to start cooking, which includes 13″ pizza pan with non-stick coating, 2 heavy duty racks, broil rack, enamel roasting pan, and airfry/dehydrating basket.
In case that’s not enough, Breville has many other accessories you can order from them.
Design and Usability
This Breville Smart Oven Air is made from brushed stainless steel material that doesn’t only provide durability and reliability, but also a great sleek modern premium look.
What I really like about this countertop oven is the big LCD design and big good feeling buttons that are simple to use.
Everything is written on a big display, and you navigate through the settings and functions with big rolling buttons.
Also, a big handle on top of the door is very conveniently placed and it brings a safer experience to users.
On the other hand, inside, you will be able to fit up to 4 racks and cook on all of them at the same time. It’s very convenient to use, and the whole Breville countertop oven doesn’t require a lot of space and you will be able to place it anywhere in your kitchen.
It doesn’t attract too much attention, yet will be able to fit into any kitchen interior since it has a neutral finish color.
You will be able to cook any recipe, and it’s integrated settings will definitely help you. With the amount of space inside, you won’t even realize you’re cooking in a countertop oven instead of a standard oven.
In case you’re still thinking whether this Breville countertop oven is the right choice, I personally think that it’s good enough to meet anyone’s needs and I think it’ll exceed your expectations.
It offers a lot and has everything that is necessary to make any cooked meal inside. In fact, I think that this Breville countertop oven offers way more than standard ovens do.
Also, looking at the number of accessories and programmed settings, you can make almost anything in this countertop oven.
And do you know what’s the best part? How convenient and easy to use it is. Finally, although it’s pricey (like all Breville products), it’s high quality and it’s innovative features will make you love it for years to come!
