Review of Breville BOV845BSS Smart Oven Pro

The BOV845BSS Smart Oven Pro differs from normal small toaster ovens in many ways. First of all, it has a smaller interior that allows it to hold less food, but this actually enables you to cook a larger variety of food with it.

Here are some of my favorite features of the Breville Smart Oven Pro.

Review of Breville BOV845BSS Smart Oven Pro

Amazing Performance

Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven is a small, good looking, efficient and reliable oven. Cooking is best in class – I would say it’s only rivaled by its bigger brother the Smart Oven Air. It is just the best every time.

I won’t go over Breville’s Element IQ again since I covered it already, but it’s very convenient for hands-off cooking. For example, once your food is done cooking your oven activates the “keep warm” function to keep your food warm for up to two hours. With it, you can keep preparing food knowing that your food in the oven will be perfectly warm whenever you need it.

The slider over with presets is very desirable, but I wish Breville put more of them on. For example, I wish they had presets for toast, pizza and bagel. Breville put a lot of effort into the design of this toaster oven and I just wish they added a few more presets to make it even better.

The griddle is really good. The heating elements are so well designed that the griddle heats up immediately and maintains this temperature exactly. The moisture is really going to the right place, which means that it’s good for cooking anything.

Breville’s oven Element IQ is a good idea, but in practice I don’t think it is a big improvement over the other sub-$300 toaster ovens.

Easy to maintain

Cleaning this convection toaster oven is a breeze. It has a sleek and smooth finish that can be wiped clean with ease. It is not easily stained, and cleaning it is quick and simple.

The BOV845BSS can be used for baking, broiling, and toasting. It comes with a large and spacious interior, which can easily fit a 4lb chicken. You can bake 4 bagel halves at once or two 12” pizzas. The oven’s wide surface area also means that you can easily cook large dishes.

This toaster oven comes with a number of pre-programmed settings, allowing you to cook food just the way you like it. There are 9 pre-programmed settings, including:

  • Bake
  • Broil
  • Roast
  • Bagel
  • Bake/Broil
  • Proof
  • Toast
  • Warm
  • Cancel

You can bake a large chicken, 4 bagel halves, or 2 12” pizzas with ease. It comes with a digital timer, which can be set from 1 minute to 99 minutes. This allows you to select the perfect baking time, and prevents you from underbaking or overcooking your food. The LCD display is easy to read and very accurate.

The toaster oven’s interior light allows you to check how well your food is cooking, without opening the door. This means that your oven will not lose heat and that you’ll be able to cook food precisely. The interior light also comes with a 30 minute timer, so you can keep track of the cooking time.

This toaster oven has a convection setting, which allows you to cook food faster. The interior fan circulates air, which dries the food out faster and allows it to cook thoroughly. The convection setting also makes it easy to cook food in a shorter time, while still maintaining its flavor.

The BOV845BSS comes with removable crumb trays and non-sticky walls. This means that you can easily clean your toaster oven when you’re done cooking. The crumb trays are easy to remove, allowing you to clean both the top and bottom of the oven. The non-sticky walls allows you to easily wipe your oven clean with a damp cloth.

The toaster oven comes with a user manual and a quick start guide, to help you get started. It also comes with a recipe book, which offers a number of recipes for you to use with your toaster oven.

Very convenient

The BOV845BSS is perfect for those who want delicious food without worrying about anything but the job itself. The device has a brushed stainless steel housing that fits in perfectly with the rest of your kitchen.

Besides being a professional-grade machine, this appliance is also designed to make your job easier. For example, the auto-shutoff feature keeps you safe. It lets you know when your food is ready using auto-eject racks that go out halfway. The drip tray is also easy to remove and clean.
