The Breville bov800xl toaster oven is attractively housed in reinforced stainless steel, this 1800-watt convection toaster oven features a 4/5-cubic-foot nonstick interior and Element IQ technology, which provides smarter control over the heat. It comes with several pre-set functions, as Toast, Bagel, Bake, and Roast.
The unit’s broil function activates just the top heating elements to melt and brown food; its toast function activates the top and bottom heating elements to seal and crisp; and the bake function uses both the top and bottom heating elements, as well as the convection fan, to ensure thorough cooking.
Thoughtfully designed, the oven’s push-button and turn-knob control panel, as well as its blue back-lit LCD screen, makes it effortless to operate the unit and to see the current function, temperature, and adjusts made.
The breville 800xl is available on Amazon for a 17% off retail price.
The Breville Smart Oven is a must-have kitchen appliance. In most cases it can serve as a replacement for a larger oven. However, the Smart Oven is much more energy efficient (using roughly 50% less electricity) and can fit into the smallest of kitchens.
Here are some great features on the Breville bov800xl:
- Element IQ technology for smarter control over the heat; 9 pre-set functions
- 5 quartz heating elements; user-friendly control panel; LCD screen; 3 rack positions
- Auto-eject wire rack; removable crumb tray; pizza pan, baking pan, and broil rack included
- Measures 18-1/2 by 12-1/2 by 10-3/4 inches; 1-year limited warranty.
The timer on the Breville turns the oven off at the end of any kind of cycle as you would expect – toast, bagel, bake, broil, pizza, etc. This is hugely wonderful compared to the Cuisinart unit which only turns itself off after toasting – you have to remember to turn it off when in any other mode. (The Cuisinart’s timer is ‘dumb’ – just a beeper.) Also, each Breville cycle has smart default settings, and can remember your own settings for temperature and time, or slices (toast) and darkness, etc.
Here´s what one of the owners had to say about the Breville bov800xl:
I am totally in love with this toaster oven! It is a heavy, quality appliance, with numerous handy, smart features. I just got it today, and I will update my review later if needed. I cooked some *perfect* cupcakes in it a little while ago, so I’m going on that experience.
