Pros: large capacity for roasting or baking
While shopping for a replacement toaster oven that would be easy to clean (i.e., a removable crumb tray) I spotted the Breville BOV800XL and was amazed by all the convenient features. Basically, this is the Cadillac of convection ovens.
The first feature that had me at hello was a crumb tray that simply slides out the front, without opening the door. Nothing could be simpler or easier to keep clean.
When you open the door, and the rack is in the middle position, magnets partially pull the rack out. Very clever.
This convection oven does it all: toast, broil, bake, roast. It has settings for bagels, pizza and cookies, and perfectly gives you an evenly crisp outside. The digital control panel retains the settings of the last feature used.
For those who make home made pizza, a 13" pizza stone is available. Your pizza will come out perfectly. The stone must be pre heated in order to achieve the perfect crust.
The Breville Smart Oven has basically replaced my old gas oven. There's nothing you can't cook in this compact, yet powerful, versatile appliance.
