    Better than expected!

    I couldn't be happier with this oven. It reheats, bakes, fries, and keeps-warm and has basically replaced the use of both my microwave and wall ovens. Casseroles in 9x13" pyrex, cookies on cookie sheets, dinner plates, pizzas on rounds...it all fits just like the description says it should. And the interface is fool-proof. Its worth the up-spend from the "Pro" unit. Take note that there are two different ways to fry. Add a little oil spray and use the multipurpose "roast" pan or spare yourself cleanup from fatty things. Save the wire fry rack for dry things that won't drip fat or oil everywhere.

    I have been very pleased with the oven so far. I love the large size and ability to bake at different levels at the same time. The sides do get hot so be careful. I have to work on timing since it is a convection oven. I overbaked banana bread this week. Rarely use my large oven. I purchased from a store further from my home simply because they actually had the oven out on display and the one near our home did not. I was willing to go a little out of my way since this particular store went out of their way to take up display space with something other than electronics. Thank you to the Elyria Ohio store.

    This Smart Oven is awesome. Ive never had a toaster oven before. I thought why bother when you an oven and a microwave. But this is a game changer. Where i would not cook as much because it’s much more effort to deal with the oven, it’s so easy to put some food in the Smart Oven, set the time and the oven does the rest. So easy. I got this oven because of the ‘air fry’ function. It’s amazing. I’m loving my homemade chunky fries and edges now. I already love and have only used 1 or 2 functions. I’m looking forward for to trying all the other ones too.

    Wife has wanted one for years. Seen that this model was on sale and I had a mystery ticket for extra $5 off. It has a lot of different cooking options. Trick was finding a Dutch oven for it. Found one! Yes. I slow cooked a roast, roasted a 9lb turkey, pizza, toasted cheese. I find this oven a great advantage during holiday cooking sprees. Only downside is, that it doesn’t come with recommended cooking times. It cooks really fast. Most items I purchase doesn’t state convection cooking times, so I’m surfing the web to a lot.

    This unit is large enough to bake just about everything. It works well, and is easy to use. 3 things to be aware of: 1. It does get hot, so you need a little space around it. 2. For air-frying, you have to have a little oil on the item. Reheating french fries or an egg roll with the air fry works great without additional oil (it's already in it from its initial frying). 3. If you cook something that drips (like using the air fry), clean the grease that dripped off right away, otherwise it becomes difficult to get off.

    So it looks like a confusing toaster oven. A very expensive confusing toaster oven. Then you take it home, and start using it. Only then do you understand how AWESOME this thing is. Toaster oven? Makes toast better than my old toaster oven, or toaster for that matter. Bake? Small things you no longer need to use your big oven for. Airfryer? You don't need to buy one of those, this thing does that as well, and has more capacity than most airfryers. It's one of those rare multi-purpose devices that actually does things well.

    We have the smaller Breville oven that we've had for years, we wanted to upgrade to one we could use larger cookie sheets in. We tried a couple other brands first and too be honest they put out so much heat through doors etc that they felt like cheap fire hazards. This breville is top of its class and made very well, no cheap feeling with this one. It can do anything you can think of like air fry,dehydrating, keep warm, it has all the functions! Breville is made to last!

    I was hesitant to buy this oven due to the price, but I do not have any regrets at all. I have only used it a few times so far, but what I cooked in it turned out great. First I roasted potatoes and pork chops which were cooked perfectly. Second I made a frozen pizza which turned out great with a perfectly crisp crust. Third, so far, was frozen fish sticks on air fry which weren't so great, but I didn't keep them in long enough. I have only had it a couple of weeks at this point, but I can foresee daily use as I get back into the swing of daily cooking.

    This oven was an upgrade to my Breville Smart Oven Pro and it doesn't disappoint. The large size is fantastic. The oven preheats quickly and bakes and cooks accurately. I do find, as I did with the smaller version of this, that baked goods need to be done at a temperature 25 degrees lower than the recipe states. We've used the airfry function twice already and my family loves this. If you are considering an air fryer, I'd skip one of those and buy this oven considering all of its other features.

    I've been wanting to get an air fryer for a while but wasn't a fan of the egg shaped and hard to store traditional air fryers. Came across this oven while looking around and decided to give it a try and am really impressed. The air fryer works great. The oven part makes great baked potatoes and the toaster makes perfect toast. That's the only three functions I've tried so far and they all worked perfectly so I'm sure this will be a keeper. Very satisfied..

    Let me start by saying that this is my first convection oven and I believe that my expectations were very high so I am a little disappointed. As an oven /toaster it does what it is supposed to do although not as fast as I thought it would,but with that being said it cooks really nice and evenly. I really wanted it for the air fryer and this is what really sucks. The air fryer only work for already cooked foods like chicken nuggets and french fries. So if you looking for this feature you might want to look into a different oven

    This Oven Does It All

    It heats up so quickly that we no longer use our big oven. The proof function really helps with bread making (picture of my bread below). The airfryer function is probably used the most. It makes everything crispy. The slow cooker function is also wonderful. I was worried that it would be too big based on the dimensions listed but it worked out perfectly.

    This oven replaces a previous Breville I have owned for 5 years, it is slightly larger and has the addition of air fry option. The oven itself is very high quality, which was expected, and the air fry worked very well; very nice to be able to "fry" food without using oil and having the mess to clean up. I will continue to use Breville products as for me personally to be able to get 5 years of service out of a appliance nowadays is extremely rare in my experience.

    This oven Cooks!! Literally it seems to cook food faster and doesn't heat up the whole kitchen. The air fryer works quite well (even if you overload the tray a little ) My wife and I haven't hardly used our regular big oven since we bought this Breville Oven and now that we have two air fryers (we had a smaller one before we purchased the Breville ) we can make Fish and Fries at the same time and they are both Hot, instead of cooking one at a time.

    The Breville Smart Air replaces a Breville Smart Oven we've had for quite a few years. We pretty much use it every day and never use our large oven. So far we have used the Air Fry several times and really like it. The only down side is there really isn't a recipe/cookbook with it as did our old one. It would be nice to have more detail on how to prepare the items to be air fried i.e. use some sort of spray, turn the items, etc. It is sort of learn by trial and error. Other than that, is is excellent oven.

    Upgraded from the regular Smart Oven and have not been disappointed. Air frying works exactly as advertised. The display is bigger, the controls are tighter and feel nicer to interact with than the prior model. Have not used the dehydrator function yet but expect similar results. Breville has a customer for life in this family. We had an issue with their personal blender and they shipped us a brand new complete replacement. Will never buy from another manufacturer.

    Favorite feature, definitely being able to put a 13 X 9 casserole dish in the oven.Now we have an excellent back up to our full size oven. Does a nice job on toast, just make sure you do not put rack on the lowest level. You will burn the bottom. Glass door has recommendations on what level to put the rack for various operations. Have not tried all the possibilities of this oven. Looking forward to this in the future. Terrific appliance!

    So far this oven is very impressive. My wife has started baking own pizzas, dehydrated fruits in addition to the usual toasting/baking. The oven is big and takes up decent amount of space. It’s a good alternative if you don’t have double ovens in your kitchen. Be careful that you’ll want to reduce the time slightly than what’s preset/recommended as it will be slightly over baked/burn.

    We enjoy the multi functionality of this oven. Size is good, easy clean up. Have used it a few times and the only thing that threw me off was that when we air fried some french fries it did not change the color much on them. I expected them to look like they were crispy brown. They tasted great, this could just be to us not leaving them in long enough. Will have to try again.

    I bought mine 2 years ago at least.I use it all the time almost every day.I no longer have a toaster.I also use this instead of my oven.I have tried several toaster ovens but this one is the best.The only complaint I have was heat was rising from the top so I bought the breville cutting board and set it on top.Problem solved cause the top does get very warm.Would def.buy the same one..love the brand..if this one evwer breaks.You get what you pay for.
