Broken Product? I ordered the Breville Smart Oven after researching similar ovens from the B&B Store. It was shipped to me. After using it x2 it no longer turns on. Will have to take it back to the store. June 13, 2013
Love it!**Helpful Info regarding oven accuracy! The general stuff... It's attractive if you have to have it out on display and the clean up is easy with the stainless exterior and a front loading pull out crumb tray. Regarding function-My uses for this oven have been pretty simple. Baking biscuits and cookies, heating a few convenience foods and toasting. I love that it preheats/bakes so much faster than my conventional gas oven as it saves us a great deal of time in the morning. Having gone from a family of 6 to just 3, it's great being able to bake just 1-2 biscuits or cookies for our son's lunch or as a quick treat, as any more than that would get thrown out long before they'd get eaten. Much less waste. I did find there was a bit of a learning curve to getting some things just right, but it really didn't take long. Because of that learning curve (and the fact that there were several complaints about inaccurate oven temps) I decided to test the oven temp using an oven thermometer I had that I knew was accurate, as it was always dead on in my gas oven. I was surprised to find that the oven would signal it was pre-heated long before the oven thermometer would reach the set temp, yet I was still getting good results. How could that be?! Despite the good results, I was concerned that there may have been an issue with my particular oven so I searched the Breville website for information and found the following in response to a post complaining about the preheat indicator signaling long before the oven had reached the set temp. Breville's response: "The Preheat signal sounds at 75% of the target temperature. You may not be allowing enough time for the oven to reach target temperature. For complete temperature stabilization at the max temperature of 450F from start-up, including opening the door at the pre-heat signal, and then allowing full temp recovery it takes 10 minutes to stabilize. Why does the Preheat sound at 75% of the target temp? The software of the oven is optimized to provide the user with the fastest heat-up time to cook a given item. The critical factor to consider is that after the preheat time is indicated, and the door is opened, the temperature inside the oven drops dramatically. When the door is closed the oven must then recover back to the target temperature. This happens with every oven, big or small. By notifying the customer at the 75% mark we achieve the fastest overall cooking time." Then a follow-up question .... "So, are we supposed to put the food in the oven at the 75% mark when the beeper sounds or do we wait until we think it's reached maximum temperature??" Breville's follow-up: "This pre-heat indicator is when you should put your food into the oven. If you wait until it reaches set temperature to open the door for the oven, you will lose a lot of the contained heat, and it will have to try to stabilize in order to reach that heat again. With testing in our machines, our engineers have found that putting food in when the beep sounds is the best time to cook the fastest and most efficiently with our ovens." So sure enough, I tested mine again and it signaled at exactly 75% of the set temp. Well there you go! May 18, 2013
Does It All This "Smart Oven" really does it all. Everything is regulated by your specifications. It's the best convection toaster oven I have every bought to date. I definitely recommend it. May 17, 2013
Breville Toaster Oven I love this toaster oven so much that I recommended it to my son & daughter-in-law (and anyone else that might be looking for a toaster oven!). Since it is just my husband & I at home now, this oven is perfect for us for pork chops, baked potatoes, toast or pretty much anything you would cook in a regular oven. Because it's just us we don't need to use the big oven therefore the house doesn't get heated up. Everything I have tried turns out as good if not better than when cooked in the big oven. And if something needs to be done quickly, the convection oven works like a charm! My son & daughter-in-law love theirs as well. I have had mine a little over 2 years now. I would not hesitate to buy Breville products for any other appliance we may need. May 14, 2013
