Breville Smart Oven Fryer a definite winner in our household, work place and farm.
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 April 2020 for $480.00.
We love this little oven. So useful and fast. Got the air fryer to go on top of the straight oven/toaster.
Very useful combo
Its very easy to program and so is useful.

Love love love
This is a fantastic oven . We live in a rental property with a really terrible oven , so i bought this oven as substitute for anything i wanted browned instead of steamed . I cook roast meats , great roast potatoes , cakes, pizza and muffins to name a few .The reheat and warm options are very helpful. I can't live without my new oven .

Great machine, don't even use the oven any more!
Great product, perfect for a family of three, best toast ever and have used every function. Only thing is it can take about 20% longer to cook then packet would suggest
Purchased at JB Hi-Fi for $350.00.
Very, very happy with this oven.
The air fryer function works really fine, although I much prefer the Sunbeam DuraCeramic Air fryer -my favourite Air Fryer, I call it Buzz Aldrin!- (which contains all bit and pieces that may come out during the cooking process) . We made boiled-in-the-skin-then-peeled whole tiny potatoes in the air-fryer and they came out fine .
The oven gets hot real fast, and the temperatures are reliable (unlike our big oven). Easy to control. And it has many functions, grill toast crumpet bake roast pizza reheat warm air-fry and slow-cook.

Rusty air fryer basket
Initially I was excited to buy the product however the product is not even 1 month with me the air fryer basket started to get rusty on my first use. If this is made for food it should not rust at all plus it is a stainless steel it should not rust. Tried contacting Breville and their customer service representative is useless, I was promised they will send air fryer basket 5 to 7 business days and I've even given them chance to extend it till 3 weeks the basket hasn't come yet. Tried calling again and was advised they still need few more days to get it delivered. How ridiculous this company can be!
Will never buy their products again and will never recommend to everyone.

Couldn’t live without it.
This oven is the utter best. I would be lost without it. It’s versatility is second to none. It grills, toasts, bakes, roasts, slow cooks reheats. I bake cakes, roast meat slow cook casseroles reheat snacks bake vegies. If you need an over then this does it all & so easy to clean.

So glad I made the investment
I procrastinated for several months after my Phillips XL Airfryer stopped working. Searching through so many air fryers when I stumbled on the Smart Oven Air Fry by Breville. I started to do my research, Yep like going down the rabbit hole, watched plenty of youtube videos and finally decided it was the one for me. The added bonus is that its also a mini oven. I have a large oven which takes a long time to heat up so having a mini oven really appealed to me.
My oven arrived in record time and I couldn't wait to get started.
Before the first u...se you have to run the oven empty for 20 minutes to remove protective substances from the heating elements. This was good as I got to familiar my self with the oven. First cook had to be of-course home made hot chips with the skins on. Well... all I can say is wow they were delicious. I have since baked cakes, slices, pastries Pizza's and bread. Everything I have baked cooked and airfryed has come out perfectly. I am yet to use the slow cooker function. The oven is extremely easy to use and heats up quickly. You just set and go.

The Breville BOV860 Smart Oven is the best thing since sliced bread!
I would be lost without the Breville! It is simple to use, compact, doesn't heat up the whole kitchen when in use; pre-heats quickly and cooks perfectly each time. It does everything it is designed to do, with ease. It actually does take the guess work out of cooking! The thing is, is that it is not just an airfryer! It bakes, roasts, heats, toasts, grills, cooks pizza to perfection, slow cooks and more. I use it for everything. I rarely ever use the normal oven for cooking anymore. My Breville smart oven gets a daily workout, several times a...day. The exterior of the oven gets hot, of course, but it does not affect what surrounds it, as long as the air vents have a couple inches of breathing space...you can sit it most anywhere. The only drawback is that it isn't all that easy to clean. The crumb tray and oven rack and airfryer basket are easily removed and washed, and the glass on the oven door is easily cleaned, however, the rest of the inside of the oven is not really cleanable at all. You can wipe it with a damp cloth but you cannot use elbow grease or any abrasive products or pads as it will damage the walls. But overall, for the ease of use and for absolute cooking convenience, and use I get from it, I give it an 11 out of 10 even with the cleaning drawbacks. It is well worth the money I paid for it and I will never be without one!

So far so good
I bought this Breville oven 2 weeks ago and so far I am happy with it.
My reason for buying it was I wanted something that could
- cook snack foods quickly as we have a large oven that takes awhile to warm up
- be easy for the teenagers of the house to use
- something that could air fry
- something that could do grilled toasties etc as we do not have a grill on our oven
- an extra oven if our oven was in use cooking something else on a different temperature
I did a lot of research prior to buying it, including reading the negative reviews I...had come across. I am happy to say I have not had the same problem that others have mentioned. To me there is no issue with the crumb tray, it slides in easily and has no impact whatsoever with the door opening or closing or the crumb tray being hard to remove.

Needs to be recalled. Buy BOV845 instead.
As a reviewer has stated, the crumb tray does come out after the door closes. Burnt my finger trying to push the crumb tray back after preheat. The external chasis temperature is burning hot, Breville needs to improve the insulation to at least warm to touch. There are many cheaper alternatives with better insulation than Breville.
Also as stated by the same reviewer before, the LCD is not readable from the front, only readable from an angle.
Same issue as BOV845, needs independent plug as this oven draws a lot of power. It will trip the f...

Questions & Answers
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!
