Can foil be placed over meat when roasting
no, not to try foil in oven
Can I spray chips from the super market in Australia with small amount of oil to air fry them
If it is not in the manual just ring and ask service number
Can I use baking paper to line the air fryer basket in the Breville 860 smart oven to minimise drip onto the elements which are apparently difficult to clean? If the extra airfryer baskets become available in NZ again, can I successfully use 2 at once with the air fry function? Like many other members, I obviously would have preferred to purchase the larger 900 model. Can’t understand why Breville could not offer it to their AU/NZ customers. We don’t have smaller families than in the US!
What did Breville say when you contacted them directly?
I heard that the AU version does not have the dehydration function, can anyone confirm this?
Hi team I am considering purchasing a Breville Smart Oven but I have not been able to find out if it is possible to install it into my caravan using the space I have for my microwave. I am concerned that it might need more breathing space around it. Could please advise me if it possible to safety install it in my van. Many thanks. Cheers Gayle
It is the same size as a micro wave and will fit in a caravan but don’t waste your money I sent emails and pictures of my air fryer with a question of how to clean it , it is a nightmare to clean and after several times asking I got a very sarcastic email try using a scourer and soap and water :/ I will never buy a breville product again Customer service sucks
Thanks Linda did not think about it being up high and difficult to clean. Cheers
Can a pan be lined with foil and used only for baking in the BOV860BSS oven? Like to heat food on the supplied non-stick pizza pan or the enamel roasting pan. To help with clean up.
Space required for both air fryers length depth and height
yes more space in both side
Breville.. I love your products in general. Beautiful appearance and quality. Please is there any update on when us Australians will see the 13 function larger capacity unit?
Can this be put into the space of a microwave? and are there minimal space dimensions required so the unit can ventilate etc? Thank you :)
What is the difference between Breville The Smart Oven Air Fryer BOV 860 BTR and BOV 860 BSS models. Which one is better? (Both seems to be same in price)
This is just from my personal research and not in anyway a professional opinion but there appeared to be differing options on the function panel. Basically the one I bought had me at the air-fryer function. Compare the function options for the one that fits your needs.
Both models have identical functions, the only difference in the models is the item code for the type of finish and colour of the unit. I have the BOV860BSS model which is Brushes Stainless Steel. a great kitchen appliance. My gas top cooker and gas oven have not been used in the passed four years.
Thank you very much for the information. Just bought my one and I love it.
Is it true that if you have solar the oven doesn't work...seems very strange
I have solar system at home and I use this oven nearly everyday with no issue at all.
What is the difference between the normal oven and the air fry oven, other than the price .
You can use it as an air fryer as well.
Hi everyone, i am considering buying the Breville Smart Oven (air fryer) i just wondered do any of the functions create a lot of smoke?
Yes they do, i have to have the kitchen exhaust fan on at the same time
When air frying, can you use a liner to place in the sealed tray on the bottom rack and , if so, what should the liner be made of.
Than you, Mickey.
Yes I like everyone here from Australia decided to purchase the Breville Air with all the additional features eg bread proofing and dehydration features to get rid of other appliances as featured in many YouTubes only to discover the so called latest Smart Oven Air does not include these features. So ripped off. Why are we always behind the US in everything. Looks like I did not do enough research. I always put in search for Australia only and I am still provided with incorrect information. I regret purchasing a Breville product, I should have gone for the Cuisinart product at least it was a lot cheaper. Not happy!
I agree. The smart oven *air fryer in US is also a microwave....not in Australia, you still need a seperate microwave. Plus no food dehydrator like US version.
I also purchased after watching YouTube thinking the difference in name was just because US and AUS often have different names.
I'm very disappointed as well.
Same here just went to proof some dough and saw that this is not on the australian model, and after reading this to find that there is no dehydrator as well disappointed didnt enter my mind after googling breville smart oven air fryer when only one came up that I had purchased the correct one
I just found that out myself. I am wondering if Breville have misled us as consumers. In none of my research, did it ever say NOT AVAILABLE IN AUSTRALIA. Imagine my surprise (which very quickly turned to disappointment) when I opened up my box only to find that there is no dehydration or proofing feature.
Can silicone mats be used for easier cleanup?
Why is Australia considered the poor cousin? I felt totally cheated as I did an immense amount of research before buying the product. Sadly though, I did not realise we down under truly were considered underlings and were being sold a much smaller, and lesser quantity machine. My family also were unimpressed when it could not do as many things as I had promised, nor fit many of our own cooking trays it in. I thought Breville was a company to be trusted but have had my fingers well and truly burnt!
I have to say, i was in the same boat here Therese. I had watched many youtube videos on this product and hadnt realise after purchasing that the ANZ unit was infact the smaller version of the 2 offerered in the US. Whilst i am very impressed with it, i would have liked to have fitted all my existing trays into it!!
Can meat be cooked in a glad oven bag in the air fryer
I have absolutely no idea what this oven can do. After it failed completely during the pre-use heating I returned it to the shop and got my money back.
