The oven also automatically shuts off the heating elements after each cycle of heating, which makes it safe for your children to use.
- Top Ten Reviews
This model was excellent in ease of cleaning. How easy it is to clean both the exterior and the crumb tray.
- Consumer Reports
It has one of the sturdiest crumb trays we've encountered that easily removes and is deep enough to keep crumbs and food bits in place on the way to the trash can.
- Tech Gear Lab
It toasted bread evenly — no half-burnt pieces here — and roasted a four-and-a-half-pound chicken beautifully.

The Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven features an automatic rack ejector that pushes its rack outside when opened. This allows you to pick your food without fear of touching the hot edges of the racks.

Interestingly, we found that toasting evenness has a lot more to do with your bread than your toaster.
- Techlicious

This Breville oven has a special IQ technology that allows you to adjust the heating on five levels so that your food is prepared quickly and efficiently.
- Good Kitchen
What experts didn't like
Rare complaints about digital display screen. Large footprint.
- BestReviews
But it is slower at preheating, doesn’t toast as evenly, and costs more than our main picks.
- New York Times Wirecutter

The toaster oven consumes 1,800 watts when in use, which is more than most of the other toaster ovens in our lineup.
- Top Ten Reviews
This model had no discernible flaws in its performance.
- Consumer Reports
It is a bit on the expensive side
- Tech Gear Lab
But be careful when using the toaster oven: The exterior can get too hot to touch.

From The Manufacturer

Every Breville product begins with a simple moment of brilliance. The Breville Smart Oven began with the simple fact that different foods require different methods of heating: some, like baked goods, need to be cooked evenly; others, like meats, need to be seared on top. Most toaster ovens fail to distribute heat in a consistent way throughout their interiors, let alone change heat distribution to suit the different foods being prepared. This is how the Breville Smart Oven stands apart: whatever the food, it adjusts its heat distribution for perfect results.
