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

Gayle

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.

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.

Hi Danika,
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.

Hi Alan

Probably, but check the space surrounding it - it gets hot, just like an oven, only smaller...

possibly
it needs clearance around it and ac power
dunno the power usage

It uses a normal 240v power outlet. It would be perfect in a caravan, you would not need an oven, only a hotplate.

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

Anne

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.

Thereseasked

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!!

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.

Hi,
Can the Breville Smart Oven/ Air Fryer model BOV860 go into a microwave slot or does it need a lot of air movement around it?

Robert Reeves
Robert Reeves

It gets really hot on top of the unit and i see vapor coming out the left hind side when air frying or roasting. It would need some clearance on left and top.

Yes to a using the baking pan on the shelf under the Airfryer rack . Yes to using silicone or baking paper and yes to foil .. it’s not a microwave so any containers you use in a standard oven can be used
