Problem with Warranty
by Chloe (1 out of 5 stars)
November 27, 2018

I loved this oven! Until it stopped working (no heat) after 3 months! I have been trying to get it fixed under warranty for 2 weeks now, without success. Is this always a difficulty when you buy things through Amazon?

I will post an update, if and when I have any luck finding someone who will respond to me. If not, I guess this product is just a dud.
*2 weeks later - still no luck getting any response to my problem!

Quality in design, features, and functions which makes it well worth the money
by Hart (4 out of 5 stars)
June 1, 2017

Before posting a review on this oven I wanted to give it a really good work out. We've now been using the oven almost daily over the last 3 weeks and we're pretty happy.

Out last toaster oven was a competitors with a steam function which worked beautifully and reheated leftovers as well as cooking meals that always came out nice and moist. Other than this one feature I can't say that I miss the old oven.

There are a number of features that make this an almost ideal countertop oven. One thing that stands out is the design and functionality, something that Breville has done very well on all of their products that we own. By the way, if you already have their microwave oven this is a nice matching counter mate for it.

Ease of use is an important item when we shop for appliances. Sure, everything we look at these days has a ton of things it can do but in most cases trying to get anything done is so complex that the manual has to stay very close unless its something that you do every day. The controls here are laid out in such a way that makes sense and like most things that come home with us, I try them out without looking at the manual first. Here I was able to pretty much use every feature without the manual. Something that I like with the controls, you can alter and change settings while in use and without disturbing the current function. With other ovens, making a change necessitated stopping the current program and then restarting with the new one. Something new to us with a counter top oven, when using a rack in the center slot there are magnets on either side of the door window. As the door open is draws the rack out raf enough where its easy to get at it for removal or for checking the cooking progress.

Temperature control is very accurate. When we compared what the dial showed vs. an oven thermometer we found that the oven was right on.

Appearance wise, it's a beautiful addition to the kitchen. The fit and finish is well done and in general the design should go well with almost any kitchen decor.

I also appreciate that it came loaded with enough accessories to get us through almost anything we would want to do in a counter top oven. This is the first such oven we've gotten hat has enough racks to fill every slot. The drying rack is a nice touch and is used for air frying. This particular feature, if we didn't already have an air fryer would be used a lot. We do however find that the air fryer we have does a better job but it doesn't do anything else. The actual oven is large enough to get a good-sized turkey into it. Not big enough that it would feed a family of 20 but we've done a 5 KG turkey and had a lot of room to spare. The 5 quartz heating elements provide more than adequate coverage from top and bottom to get every area of the turkey nicely browned.

So far we've done:
◊ Roasted turkey and chicken
◊ Air fried carrots, potatoes, and sweet pepper
◊ Cookies
◊ Oven French fries
◊ Spaghetti squash
◊ Trout, snapper, and salmon
◊ Reheated a number of different leftover dishes

We've not use the dehydrator feature. We have a very nice dehydrator that allows for a larger quantity to be processed at one time making it more economical.

The two convection speeds are interesting. Our other ovens are convection but only a single speed. We thought that the higher speed would work best for air frying but in our experience it hasn't. We still have yet to find something that the higher speed will do better but I appreciate that it's an option which could become useful in the future. On the slower speed, the fan is very quiet. Yes it can be heard but its not annoying. The higher speed setting is very obvious in comparison.

For clean up the oven design makes it easy. The drip sheet which covers the entire bottom is easily pulled out and washed off. Its light weight and it slides back into the oven as easily as it was removed. The only thing that I found was a little difficult to clean are the two bottom heating elements. They have protective bars on either side which limit the access to each side of the element for wiping down. Its not something that keeps them from being cleaned, it just makes things a little more difficult.

The large window and internal light make using the oven in the evening or in a darkened room easy. This is one feature we haven't had in a counter top oven previously.

Looking inside, you can see that the back wall has a section in the middle which is curved outwards. This accommodates the round pizza sheet that came with the oven. It's not very deep, just enough to allow the sheet to be inserted. Again, a feature we've not had previously.

For use on counters that aren't very deep, the back has two rubber bumpers which stop the oven from being pushed right up against a wall. This allows for some air circulation around the backside so the oven can cool off but also so that when hot the back side doesn't heat up and discolour the wall behind it. As with any counter top oven, the top does get hot. We store the extra racks here as well as some silicone oven mitt's. This still gives us about three inches of clearance to the bottom side of the shelves above it.

In each case, we've been very happy with the results. This isn't the least expensive option when it comes to this kind of an appliance but like anything else, you get what you pay for. This is a high-end counter top oven that happens to make toast, we found this a better description than the name typically given to this kind of appliance, toaster oven.

An excellent design (not perfect), but good enough to earn a place in our limited countertop space.
by Kindle Customer (5 out of 5 stars)

Wow, glad I bought mine (4) weeks ago before the price increased by $80. But even at the current price, it is one heck of a small, 2nd oven for our kitchen. I've cooked a 4lb whole chicken in it, a fresh (home-made) pizza, pies at Thanksgiving, canned cinnamon rolls, used the broiler to crisp left-overs and more. I wanted to wait until I'd really used this thing before posting a review since there is so much that can be done with this smart-oven.

The oven has excelled at everything that I've given it with exception to toasting bread and bagels. Toasting bread/bagels takes 2-3 times as long as a conventional counter-top toaster and the results are not better with the Breville. It tends to cook darker toward the rear half of the oven for toast/bagels and other things that are being cooked that way. Also, toast tends to stick to the cooking rack which is messier to clean-up afterwards vs a regular toaster. So, I still use our standard-old toaster for toast/bagels and let the Breville do other things that are more useful.

My wife and I have found that the Breville is our go-to oven for most things. It pre-heats faster than our large floor oven and it does not heat-up the entire kitchen. I've found the controls to be both intuitive and useful. I especially like the temperature control selections for broiling which our large oven does not offer. I can choose "low broiling" on our Breville while our floor oven has one choice "max heat". The "low broil" temp is way better at putting a crisp on left-over french fries without burning them.

The Breville does get hot on the sides and top, so pay attention to the required clearances and little-fingers from kids. We also bought the Breville cutting board for this oven and that thing has been great. It sits as a heat barrier on the top and provides a usable spot to place hot items removed from the oven. Also pay attention to using the "convection" only for foods that need it. Not all foods benefit from convection heat and I'm happy that the Breville gives me the option to deselect it.

One thing that I wish they had done differently is the oven light. It automatically turns off after 30-seconds and I wish it had the ability to be turned off when "I want it off". I find myself having to keep pressing that small button for the light repeatedly for some cooks as they near being done.

Oven died in less than a year.
by Kindle Customer (1 out of 5 stars)

I loved this oven for the first 3 months. At that point the count down timer stopped working. Now, at one year the oven is dead. We not only wasted the money $400 spent on the oven, we spent money to buy extra racks, and a pizza stone.

a whole bag of french fries and chicken nuggets-(not really possible with regular air fryer) Stainle
by Monica K (4 out of 5 stars)
June 16, 2017

Update: I still like the machine but the heat is not even. The left side of the oven doesn't get browned as fast as the right side(see bagel pic below). I wonder if anyone else has a similar issue. Not sure if this is something that needs to get attention.

I bought this machine because it had an air fryer function.

The positives are,

Large capacity- A whole chicken, a whole bag of french fries and chicken nuggets-(not really possible with regular air fryer)

Stainless steel- I love the stainless steel. The racks are relatively easy to clean. I just put them in the washing machine.

It replaced my oven in summer.

Bagel function toasts bagels like just-baked texture. Conventional toaster just dry out bagels while toasting but this bagel function actually makes it crispy outside and moist inside.

Multi function- love the broil and proof function

Negatives are,

While air fryer function is great and it is the number one reason why I bought this machine, it is not as efficient as the regular air fryer. Regular conventional air fryer works faster and crisps up better...it still does the great job but slightly less efficient than regular air fryer.

Price of course, never thought I'd pay $400 for a toaster oven but good stuff comes with price so I am not complaining.

For air frying it is questionable.
by NWs kitchen (2 out of 5 stars)
December 2, 2017

I went to this oven from the wonderful Philips airfryer which was just too small. This Smart Oven has many good features but the airfryer section is a failure for a major reason. This air fryer basket has a built in metal sign stating: "DO NOT USE WITH FOODS THAT DRIP WHILE COOKING." The Philips air fryer came with many recipes in three books where over 50 percent left lots of oil in the bottom pan that was removed through air frying. These included chicken pieces, lamb racks, salmon steaks, pork chops and all kinds of reheating to bring back crispness in crusts. This leaves me only dry French fry potatoes of what I air fry. If I put the broil pan under the air fryer basket it cuts off the air fryer heat. Breville knows that most air fryer foods drip, why is this oven not designed to do it right?

A Real, Capable Oven that happens to double as a Proofer, Air Fryer and Dehydrator
by Rick G. (5 out of 5 stars)

Breville Smart Oven Air

This week I've been testing the new Breville Smart Oven Air. It has exceeded my expectations in every way and so far I absolutely love it. Not only does this oven look great on the counter, it doesn't take up too much space, and the versatility of this oven is amazing. And the new industrial design is timeless and will fit in with any style.

A true oven, I think people who bought the slightly smaller Smart Oven Pro like I did, found that it can actually replace their large oven for cooking a lot of items. This is really a true oven that can cook anything that your main oven can, even a 14lb turkey, but with more efficiency. The interior of this oven is huge, measuring 16 inches wide by 12 inches deep, and 7 inches high, giving you more room for tall loafs of bread or cooking roasts without grazing the top elements. There's one extra element on top, making 6 quartz elements in total. The 8 rack positions offer a range of heights for cooking a variety of different sized foods, and will easily fit a large dutch oven.

The range of functions on this model makes it much more versatile than the Smart Oven Pro, now with 13 different modes. In addition to the 10 modes found on the Pro, the Air adds nifty features such as a proofing mode, giving you a proper way to rise dough for perfect baking results. They've also added a dehydration feature, letting you dehydrate a variety of foods such as fruit snacks or beef jerky, and lets you dehydrate up to four trays at a time. The new Super Convection mode boosts the fan speed enabling crisper results and faster cooking speed than ever before, and I've had nothing but good results so far.

Most interesting is the Air Frying mode. Not only does this eliminate the need for a separate appliance, this is a great way to cook frozen snack foods like fries and onion rings, evenly browning and crisping perfectly.

Baking in this oven is precise and yields consistent results. Cookies came out evenly browned all around. I roasted a chicken that came out amazing, using the new phase cook feature. Phase Cook allows you to set two back-to-back cooking functions, so you can for example quickly crisp and brown the outside of a roast and automatically switch to a lower, slower cooking method for the remainder of the time. This is one of my favourite features, and makes it possible to achieve incredible results with little effort. Also new, is a Rotate reminder, that alerts you half way through to turn the pan around for the best most even results. I really found that helpful, especially for times when I'm using two racks at once.

With all the baking and roasting this oven does, it's easy to forget that it also functions as a 9 slice toaster! This oven puts heat exactly where it's needed, providing the most even toasting I've seen. Bagels were browned on top while the bottoms remained soft and lightly toasted. And if you just finished toasting a bagel or making toast and the oven is still hot, the it's smart enough to adjust the cooking time if you want to make more, so your toast is always the same colour whether you start with a cold or hot oven. A bagel took about 6 minutes with a cold oven, and when I wanted to toast another it took just over 3 minutes. This oven does take slightly longer to toast than the smart oven pro, but only about a minute longer.

Some of the negative reviews for the Smart Oven Pro were regarding the control panel failing... so they've added a cooling fan inside the Air's control panel to keep the sensitive electronics safe from overheating and prolonging the life of the oven, and they've upped the warranty to two years instead of one. Although the fan is annoying, if it helps keep the oven working longer, I can live with it.

In our house, this oven gets used several times per day and it never let us down. But I could go on forever about this oven, so I'll just list the things I liked and disliked the most.

Things I liked most about this oven:
-Light comes on when you open the door
-Timer pauses when door is opened
-Beeping sound level is adjustable and can be silenced completely
-Seal on door wraps all around to keep more heat in, increasing efficiency
-Oven Door stays open 1 to 4 inches without the need to prop it open
-the thick, high-quality racks
-Broiling feature works better than the Pro
-Auto-eject for the toast and air fry levels
-New magnetic rack-puller design
-New fan design moves more air
-Big, bright display is easy to read and interpret
-2 racks instead of one
-fits a 11lb roast turkey comfortably and gives amazing results
-Bakes two pies at once or two sheets of cookies, and reminds you to rotate half way
-Heats to within 10 degrees of set temperature
-Proofing feature is a huge convenience
-Phase Cook for combining two cooking cycles into one

Dislikes
-Convection Fan is incredibly loud especially in super mode
-Front panel fan is loud and comes on any time the oven is activated, even in toast mode where the fan isn't really necessary.
-I wish oven light would stay on until I turn it off
-Takes longer to reach temperature, 20 minutes to reach 400F
-No recipe book - I wish there was a book of recipes designed for this specific oven that take advantage of the Phase Cook feature , dehydration and other features
-Rack edges rub on the glass in the 3rd or 4th rack position when opening and closing the door
-Oven Size may be a bit large for smaller tasks

Who's it for?

I think this oven is for serious cooking, a bit overkill for a college student for example. It is really a real oven that can be used as a toaster oven. If you think you will need a second oven at times, this is a great option. Actually, this oven would make the ultimate wedding gift for newlyweds.

Recommended?

Yes! Although slightly on the pricey side, if you're looking for a countertop oven that can replace your range and can double as a toaster, the versatility, the convenience and features of this model will exceed your expectations as it did mine. With all the performance and capability of a large range oven, you'll absolutely love the top-of-the-line smart oven Air.

one for things that are low in fats and a second pan used for high in fat products like chicken wing
by Ruel777 (5 out of 5 stars)
February 23, 2018

I am a professional chef and this product delivers! First and foremost it is a top of the line toaster oven the size of a small oven. You can fit a 1/2 pan, mid sized turkey is about its limit. It has no hot spots because of its 6 computer controlled heating elements and a turbo fan to seal the deal. It fits a standard frozen pizza or a Large Pap Murphy's Pizza. Incredibly simple to use and accurate at low or high temperatures. Yes you can dehydrate to make MSG free beef jerky, yes you can caramelize meats with precision with broiling, yes you can even proof bread! The darn thing preheats in 2-4 mins!

Not only does it do all this... it is a top of the line air fryer! It comes with 2 air fry pans, one for things that are low in fats and a second pan used for high in fat products like chicken wings. My personal suggestion, spray a small amount of oil on low fat items to get an authentic fried food texture and flavor. With out it things get hard... instead of deliciously crispy.

In short I don't use my home oven unless its a bigger project. (family get together's) Re-heating food from work has never been simpler! I refuse to use microwaves! Enjoy a high end product!

The only warning I have is if you have kids or irresponsible roommates... (same thing haha!) The oven gets hot. Keep things off it and around it. There are 2 air vents and the oven needs its space for proper air flow. To me, it comes with the territory.

Glass crack shattered with 3 uses
by whalemeal (1 out of 5 stars)
November 29, 2018

Potential buyers be aware: The glass may be shattered and pop out up to everywhere in your kitchen while cooking.

The front glass unit shattered and popped to outside with 3 uses of roasting(using the exact preset setting). I didn't see any indication of this when we first inspected the unit. This could have potentially hurt my family if anybody had been near the thing. At our first use, I was actually standing right in front of the glass to see how it works and I don't want to imagine what could have happened there. Those 400 degree glass pieces right into my face.

Of course, I will return this thing and will never purchase anything from this brand. Very disappointing.
