Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven Review

Breville BOV800XL Convection OvenCooking food is a chore and definitely something that is going to be very difficult to do if you do not have the proper equipment. I know that from experience because it is a pain to fire up your oven as well when you are only making a smaller meal for one or two. While this may seem like it is a big waste of time, you need to realize it really is not that big of a waste as you can find a smaller item that can make the same food for you at almost the exact same quality as well and that is by using a toaster oven. If you are like most of us, though, you head to the computer and fire up the search engines to look for the item you want to buy only to realize you have hundreds of models to pick from. That is why we are going to do a complete review of the Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven.

Features Of The Breville BOV800XL

  • Using the latest in Element IQ the system is going to allow you to have a meal that is prepared properly, but also going to have the power and time adjusted to what it learns as being what you are looking for in the taste.
  • This is a toaster oven that will actually have 9 functions that are already set for you. These make it quite a bit easier for you to get the cooking done in a timely manner and not have to be concerned about the toaster oven not working for what you need to have it working for because you just have to flip the switch to the selection that you want to have for the food cooking option you want to have.
  • The instructions that you have on the screen are the LCD screen and that makes it very easy for you to be able to read the instructions that you have on the screen and with the way the display is setup, it is rather easy for you to be able to see and know you are not going to make any mistakes on how you have it set.
  • When you look at the Breville BOV800XL you will notice it is going to look large, but that can be deceiving as the interior dimensions are 13.25 inches wide and only 11.25 inches deep. The height is somewhat small as well at 5.25 inches. When you go to move the toaster oven you may be shocked at the weight as the size can look smaller, but it does weigh in at 22 pounds.

How Much Can This Toaster Oven Hold

I have to say that the claim is this is a toaster oven that is able to hold 6 slices of bread or a 13 inch pizza. Now, the downside is I would have to question this as the experience I have with the claim of the six slices of toast is how big are the pieces that are being used for the bread. As I tend to use homemade bread and often I can get a couple of pieces of my bread into the toaster oven before it is full. So while the claim is six pieces of toast, I would have to say that for me it typically is less because I use homemade bread with larger than normal slices.

Does The Breville Have PTFE Or PFOA?

Sadly, this is one chemical type of item that people are going to know is important to keep away from is your own birds. The bad news is according to multiple reports on the Internet this is one toaster oven that actually has both of these items inside of it. So it will work for cooking the food, but at the same time you could have the chemicals put out into the air as well so if you have pet birds it is important for you to know about this.

What Kind Of Dishes Can You Use In The Toaster Oven?

With some of the toaster ovens that I have looked at before you could only use a certain type of dish or inside of them for it to properly cook. Well, the good news is with this model and brand it does not really impact the cooking or the cook time on which one of these you are planning on using as all cookware tends to do really well in the toaster oven. This makes it easier for you to get the cooking done and not have to worry about buying a new of cookware. The big difference you will notice is the size can impact which of your cookware pieces you are able to use as it is smaller than what most people are used to.

What Does The Different Color On The LCD Lights Mean?

This is a common question and one that you would find confusing at times. However, what you will find is the lights are going to make a difference in telling you in what is going on with the toaster oven. This is a toaster oven that when the baking process starts up will actually have the LCD lights turn into the orange color. This is completely normal so you do not need to freak out when you see this happening and know that it is normal.

What Do I Like About This Toaster Oven

I really have to say this is a toaster oven that is going to hold quite a bit of food. Granted, it does not hold as much food as I would like, but for the size that it has it is going to actually work out really well and provide me with enough food to cook the food I want to have. So I do like the amount of food the toaster oven is able to hold and this helps me in getting all the food cooked in a timely manner.

The presets that are on the toaster oven help out as well. I have kids and while they are learning to cook, they are not expert chefs like Gordon Ramsay. I would see their level of cooking is improving, though, and that does make my life a lot easier. However, the preset selections that are on the toaster oven really helps me in getting to have the kids get the food ready that they want to have.

With the method of cooking that is used it almost always guarantees that the food is all going to be finished at the same time. This allows me to time out my entire dinner at the right time and know it is going to make it easier for me to get the meal all on the table without having to worry about anything getting cold on the table.

What I Did Not Like About This Toaster Oven

While I do have a lot of good things to say about this toaster oven a negative that I did find is the way the cooking is being completed you may find yourself limited to only doing a single dish at a time. This is where it comes in for you to know exactly how to plan out the cooking you are completing with the toaster oven and how you are going to be able to balance out all of the cooking with the smart cooking sensors you have available to use.

My Final Thoughts On The Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven

While I do like the Breville Toaster oven it did not secure our top spot for the toaster ovens for smaller spaces. Yes, I know that a lot of people would like to think that this is the best one, but I have to say for the smaller spaces I like the toaster ovens that are able to handle multiple tasks at once. With that being said, I do like this toaster oven and really enjoy all that it has to offer, but I prefer the toaster ovens that are able to offer me multiple options like our top rated model the Cuisinart TOA 60 Air combination. Overall, though, this is a great option if you are looking for a nice toaster oven that will cook food for you in a timely manner and you do not want anything like an air , then the Cuisinart TOA 60 air is a great option.
