Breville BOV800XL The Smart Oven 1800-Watt Convection Toaster Oven Review

When you aren’t cooking a big meal for a large family, it seems like a waste of energy to use the kitchen oven. After doing a little research, I found an appliance that solves this problem. If you are going to make smaller size meals and don’t want to waste energy using a large oven, then you should use a smaller electric oven that sits on your kitchen counter top. I’ve looked at some of these types of counter top ovens but the Breville BOV800XL was one of the few which caught my attention because of the many favorable customer reviews it received.

Temperature Control


While I was gathering information for this Breville BOV800XL Convection Toaster Oven review, one of the features that stood out is that it lets you have control over the 1800 watts of power that it delivers. While the heating elements of other countertop ovens remain on full power when in use, power to the Breville oven heating elements are adjustable just like a dimmer switch. So if you are baking food at a lower temperature then you can turn down the power and if you are baking food at a higher temperature you can turn it up for more power.


User Friendly Features


Although the temperature control is an impressive feature, it’s all the other “small” things of the Breville BOV800XL Convection Toaster Oven that make it truly hassle-free and convenient to own and use. Take for instance the non-stick surfaces and the removable crumb tray that make clean up a breeze. Then the Breville does the “thinking” for you with nine pre-set functions: Toast, Bagel, Bake, Roast, Broil, Pizza, Cookies, Reheat, or Warm. And when you open the door, the wire rack ejects automatically halfway out of the oven for safe removal of hot items.
