Almost perfect

I was persuaded to buy the Breville Smart Oven by a relative. With me being single now it has been an invaluable addition to my kitchen. It Roasts, Bakes, Grills, Airfrys and Toasts. There is only one fault, and that is the Toast Function. Foure slices of toast range from light cream to brown when toasted together. This infuriated me to the point that I complained to Breville, and the oven was replaced, free of charge. Theproblem still exists with the new one. As "toasting"is not the main use, I am prepared to have different shades of brown for my breakfast. I will not bother pursuing another complaint. Show details

Excellent product - daily use

This has been my main kitchen appliance. I purchased this a few months ago and have used all of the functions, cooking a wide range of foods, including roasts, pizzas, muffins, and also used the reheat function and slow cook. The airfry appears to work as well as a standalone that I used to own. When I airfry though, I do put the baking tray underneath to collect any mess, and this perhaps makes it a little less effective but does aid in clean up. Like all appliances, one has to learn how to get the best out of it, and it may take a bit of trial and error, but this is the most useful appliance I own and it is easy to use and clean and the build quality excellent. Show details

A good oven we use almost every day

We bought this oven a year ago to use it for most of our daily baking / cooking and warming of food. Very convenient, it reaches the temperature very quickly although not as soon as it rings, as I placed a thermometer inside to check the actual internal temperature. Real temperature takes longer to be reached than indicated so I leave it longer to warm up. Once temp is reached it holds it very well as it has a double glass window, so it doesn't loose too much heat through its body. It also has a bottom tray/drawer that you can easily remove to clean. Overall it is a good oven but a bit pricey for what it is, but still recommended. Show details

Perfect for lazy day cooking

I gifted my boyfriend this Breville Smart Oven Airfryer and he loved it so much. You can literally do anything on it. If you are living in a flat this is a very compact and efficient appliance you can have. Roast, bake, re-heart, slow cook, GRILL, and so much more! Very easy to clean to ,just pop it in the washer! Very happy with it! Show details

Worst design possible for an air fryer

If you ever air fry something that splatters you might as well throw this in the bin ... completely im possible to clean .. i have breville everything and love the brand ( well not any more after their response) but this product is a disaster... too many internal parts that can't be cleaned Show details

Overrated

All the positive reviews helped make my decision to purchase. Reheat function on main meals heats edges and cold in the middle - rice dries out and is cold. crumpet cooked around edge.
want a refund. Show details

Using Grill, that function turns on and off on the unit I have when the oven reaches some temperature after a couple of minutes as though the thermostat is intervening. This is with the oven door wide open and on even shorter on and longer off cycles with the door closed.
What is the fix for this please?

Just wondering does this have the dehydrate feature?

Thanks Geoff

The temp is ok as you can keep an eye on its progress, but also depends on what is dehydrating as light items (I've done parsley in the previous model using warm) can fly around if using the fan.

Convection button? If I have it on should the fan run ?

Yes the fan run when convection button is on, you will hear the sound.

It should come on automatically unless you specifically turn it off.
The fan is known to fail in the previous model oven, as in my experience.
The fan is loud enough and should be more obvious with this upgrade.

Features

  • Comes with 10 pre-set cooking functions, which are: toast, crumpet, bake, grill, roast, air fry, pizza, slow cook, re-heat and warm.
  • A large 22-litre capacity allows you to toast 6 slices of toast, cook a 30-cm pizza, roast a chicken, or place a 9-cup muffin tray inside the Smart Oven.
  • Uses Breville’s trademarked Element iQ system ‘super convection’ method. This maximises airflow and directs power to where it’s needed, for more even cooking and a crispy exterior on foods.

  • Comes with the following accessories: an air fry basket, enamel roasting pan, 30cm non-stick pizza pan, wire rack and grilling rack.

  • Food is crispy on the outside and soft on the outside.
  • The 22-litre capacity is spacious, allowing home chefs to cook large batches of food (barring, perhaps, a large family roast).
