A good oven we use almost every day.

published

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.

Perfect for lazy day cooking

published

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!

Worst design possible for an air fryer

published

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

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.

Nice, but misrepresented Aussie functions

published

Nice, but ripped off by AU specs. No proofing or dehydrating in Aussie unit & like others here - I thought I did my research. Love the black colour, easy to operate and cooks a charm.

Do yourself a favour

published

My brother has this unit and, while it is good, I purchased the Cuisinart Combi steam/convection oven instead and I am glad I did. It was cheaper and does a lot more than the Breville. It doesn't airfry but I also bought a small inexpensive airfryer

This pocket rocket is awesome

published

Just bought this little unit and have tried out a few functions already. So far so good. Its easy to set up and use with a pre set buttons for most things. We tried out the chip mesh tray and it was great. Chips were crispy but not too dry and nice that they weren't oily. Chicken strip's were also delicious in the air fryer. Crispy on the outside and juicy and moist inside. I will update more functions as I use them.

I use it so much more than expected.

published

I originally bought this to act as a "sort of" proofing oven but find myself using it often for many other things. I love the air-fryer for potato wedges - thanks for nothing Breville - but it toasts gluten free bread really well, grills very gently, and even fits my 26cm casserole pot. It's an excellent addition to my kitchen freeing up space in the built in 90cm oven for larger items and also quicker to heat for smaller jobs

Breville Smart Oven Fryer a definite winner in our household, work place and farm.

published

I have three of the original Breville Smart Ovens, at home, at work and at the farm. I recently upgrade to the Smart Oven Air Fryer. A great appliance that can just about cook anything. A bit small for the large family roast. I cook the vegetables in the Smart Oven and Meat or Chicken in the Smart Oven Air Fryer. My Sister and Brother have purchased the Smart Oven Air Fryer for their kitchens. No need for the gas oven.

Purchased in for $480.
