We bought this oven to replace our aging BOV800XL, which we loved. With just 2 of us, we use the oven primarily for baking meat to avoid having to use the large oven in our stove. The first 2 times we used it, it worked fine. The third time it stopped with an E05 error code after baking for about 20-30 minutes. We pulled the power cord, waited a couple minutes and plugged it back in. The oven started up and we were able to finish cooking the meat. The Breville manual says to contact customer service with no further explanation of what the error code means. We were reluctant to use it again, but we did. This time it ran fine. The next time we used it, it again stopped with the same error code, so the problem is intermittent.We contacted Breville customer service on Nov 30 and after a couple email exchanges, they authorized a replacement. They emailed us a pre-paid FedEx Ground shipping label on Dec 4. Good thing we had saved the original shipping box. Saturday, Dec 9, we boxed up the defective oven and brought it to FedEx. According to Breville customer support, they will ship the replacement unit once they have received the defective unit. They stated to expect to receive the replacement oven within 7-10 days after that.They do offer a Ship in Advance option which places a temporary authorization hold on a major credit or debit card. They will then ship a replacement unit without waiting to receive the defective one. We decided not to take this option.UPDATE 05-08-2018: The replacement unit had worked fine until today, when it started shutting off with an E05 error code. They either have a design problem or a quality control issue. At this point I don’t know what I want from Breville. I hesitate to get another replacement. I have lowered my rating to 1 star. Very disappointed.UPDATE 05/22/2018 Breville agreed to send another oven (3rd oven), this time a model BOV800XL, at my request to try a different model. Within a couple uses, it shut off with the same E05 error code. Building codes where I live require GFCI circuits in bathrooms and kitchens. The circuit where I plug in the oven is a 20 amp dedicated circuit with a GFCI outlet. Running the oven has never tripped the GFCI outlet or the main 20 amp breaker, just the E05 error and the oven shuts off. Only one other device is plugged into this circuit, a power block for a cordless telephone base unit. I again contacted Breville and this is what they told me in an email: “If it is a GFCI outlet, sharing the outlet, or if the unit is not running on a 20 amp circuit you will keep getting this error.” So the bottom line is that Breville ovens cannot be reliably run on a power circuit with a GFCI outlet.UPDATE 07/06/2018: Breville agreed to let me return the 3rd oven and they issued me a full refund for the original purchase price. We then ordered a Cuisinart TOB-260N1 from Amazon. We have been using it for several weeks and so far have had no problems with it.
Good product while it works.This, and most Breville ovens, have faulty thermal fuses which are quite difficult to replace. After my oven stopped working, I googled the issue and I found out many users are experiencing the same problem. Breville should be aware of this issue and fix the units that fail, even after warranty expires – I purchased my unit 18 months ago and warranty covers one year – and use a better quality thermal fuse in new units. I’d also be a great idea to install it in such a way that can be easily serviced if it fails.A simple $5 part fails and the repair will cost me at least $150 plus the inconvenience of having to be without an oven for weeks.

I have forced my mother onto a diet because her cardiologist wants to give her bariatric surgery before he decides if any surgical intervention is necessary on her heart. One of the biggest problems about cooking when you are single is that your oven is too big for little jobs. In my mother’s case, it also holds baking sheets, cooking pots, strainers, etc. Between lugging out all that stuff, heating the oven, the wait, it is a little inconvenient.And obviously resorting to the microwave and convenience foods has hurt her. So I figured a small convection oven would be a good idea. It is convenient. It can handle a roast or a chicken. But it can also make a nice baked potato and roasted vegetables.My mother refuses to read a manual. Giving her a new phone every couple of years requires my taking dangerous amounts of Xanax mixed with alcohol. Computer pop-ups notifying her of updates result in harried phone calls. Tablets, Rokus, Blu-Ray players … God help me. I wonder why I ever do it. (The obvious answer is so the neighbors cannot speak ill of me.)But the set up on this is simple enough that even she can handle it. The first nob is for method, the second is for temperature, and the third is for time. Yes, there is a convection setting button and one for frozen foods. She even figured those out. But it is intuitive. She knows now not to have anything touching the walls of the unit. She knows that it is necessary to pull it from the wall when she wants to use it. She knows not to touch the sides unless it has cooled down.What I am trying to say is that my mother, who was a government employee, can figure this thing out. It is great for cooking a one-pound pork tenderloin. It is great for baking a pork chop. In other words, it is great for a single cook. The window tells you what level to put the baking rack at. The bottom tray pulls out for easy cleaning. And because I read the manual, I was able to explain about not touching the elements when wiping down the inside, etc.This is a great little device for the single cook. One of the hardest parts about making food for oneself is either portion size or that you have to make big food and be stuck with it all week if you don’t freeze it. This and a FoodSaver (which I also bought her) lets you buy a big roast and cut it down and vacuum seal it.Couple things I have noticed:1) People who show photos of blown-out wall outlets or burnt walls or ruined plugs didn’t read the manual. It clearly says that it should be four inches away from anything on all sides and six inches from anything above. This sucker gets hot. It is not insulated like a regular oven. Don’t put it in a hole for a microwave, even if you have heat sinks all about.2) If the thermal fuse blows on your oven, it is actually a five-dollar part and there are ample YouTube videos on how to fix this. It is easy to get the OEM replacement. There is no reason to throw the oven away. I’d also argue those who have this problem may be leaving their oven too close to walls.3) I don’t think convection saves a great deal of time. I cooked a one-pound pork tenderloin in there and followed the old rule about one-third less time at the same temperature. It didn’t really work. But if you let the oven cook and use the convection, it results in a nicely cooked outside. I wouldn’t say it is a sear, but it looks nicer than if one merely baked it.4) This thing is great with frozen pizzas. It is auto-set for this and you just put it on the included pizza plate and let ‘er rip. The convection gives a nice, even cooking to it and it doesn’t come out all cracker dry and browned like in a conventional oven. Plus you don’t have to look in on it every two minutes to see if it is done. It is hard to find a sweet spot on frozen pizzas in a big oven. Probably because of uneven cooking.I have not baked cookies or pastries in this oven so I don’t know how that goes, especially with convection. I have only cooked meats, vegetables, and potatoes. Vegetables roast so nicely. I attached a photo of some Brussels sprouts I recently did.I think a single person or a couple will stop using their large oven if they get this. I am surprised that studio apartments don’t just provide one of these and an induction top to save space. I am looking to build a very small home and I plan on doing just that. This is a fantastic little oven, and if used properly will produce satisfying results.Just read the manual. It is not as simple as just plugging in and making something. You do have to know how to use it.

Purchased this oven in Sep of 2017 . On the morning of March 16, 2018 while trying to toast a bagel the oven started smoking heavily then the top burners caught fire! Fortunately, I was able to put out the fire but it was a terrifying experience! In the past, I’ve owned several toaster ovens from other brands none of which ever caught fire. I purchased this one because Breville is suppose be a top brand and have very reliable products. I’m sorry I didn’t pay attention to the other one star reviews that mentioned this product to be a fire hazard. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND AMAZON PULL THIS PRODUCT UNTIL THESE ISSUES HAVE BEEN RESOLVED!!! PLEASE, BUYER BEWARE…DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

Terrible…..The damn thing blew up on us. We used it 2 times and the glass shattered at 400 F.I would not recommend this product to anyone as it is dangerous.

If I could rate this oven higher I would. If this oven broke today I’d get another one without hesitation. Nothing on the market compares, in my opinion. Fan is slightly loud like metal on metal, but moves air effectively. (Update: Fan became quiet after a few uses and is now nearly silent)This oven has become the main oven in our house. It is used every single day and never lets us down. Haven’t touched the large oven since we got this one. Large oven is now used only for storage! Amazing cooking results! Interior fits everything I put in it from chickens to roasts, to 13″ pizza.Not a fan of the boring looks but the usage totally makes up for it. Have yet to burn anything, it’s so precise. Also makes great toast, but make no mistake, this is no toaster, this is a REAL OVEN and it means business.

This toaster oven is like so many Breville products. They look good and work great when they’re brand new and then slowly degrade and stop working completely after far too short of a time. The fan became unbalanced within the first year I had this. For a while I could hit the side of the toast to get it to stop making a huge racket but a few months later it stopped spinning altogether. Over time the buttons became less and less reliable. At first I would have to push a second time to get it the register, then it was three or four times. Then it got to the point where I would have to mash the button a dozen times before it would detect that I wanted to start cooking something. My Breville coffee machine has the exact same buttons and had the exact same problem. Breville makes nice looking small appliances but they’re junk and stop working years before you would expect. Buy at your own risk and be prepared to replace in a year or two.

I have the previous model ( BOV800XL) Smart Oven that I bought from Amazon in Feb 2014 that is still working great.. It still gets a 5 Star rating from me.My range and fridge are both made by JENN-AIR. Three months ago the main circuit board in the range burned out and am still waiting for a new one. This has gone on long enough so decided to get another Smart Oven.This Breville model BOV845BSS has some upgraded features over the 800XL that I really like so I put my money where my mouth is and went with another one. It came on time ( I have Prime) well packaged and protected in a box that was in another box, and AMAZON put the whole thing into another box. So the chances of getting damaged goods from rough handling by shippers is almost impossible. The overall sizes have not changed so trays and racks are interchangeable. A switchable interior light has been added top left and new extended cooking times (up to 10 hours) on oven features like roasting and baking etc.is now standard. Completely new is a Slow Cooker Circuit with two setting HIGH and LOW, and believe it or not the interior is large enough for either of my two naturally black cast-iron pots and lids to be used. It’s a snug fit but if a larger container is required they could be put to work. My wife has “claimed” the New one,and I have the original. I never realized the improvements at meal times of being able to use two toaster ovens at the same time. We actually get to sit down at the table at the same time, and at last no more compromising on cooking temps & times at supper times. By raising the oven up a few inches off the countertop, the supplied roasting pan and Pizza plate store very nicely underneath.A 13″ Pizza stone fits too. Hockey pucks or small cans wrapped in foil give a nice lift. Time will tell in the long run how it will stand up. I only hope it is as good as the first oneIMPORTANT NOTE. This oven draws a heavy amperage and considerable thought is needed where to place it in the room for it to be a Plug & Forget appliance..
Amazon deserves 5 stars for their customer service.This product deserves 1 star. Used it sparingly over 6 months and the display screen began lighting up like a Christmas tree for a couple of weeks when turned on. It then stopped working all together. If I’m spending north of $300 after taxes for an oven, I expect it to last more than a few years. Six months is a tad bit shy of my expectations.

I was a bit hesitant because of the price and some reviewers mentioning reliability issues, but settled on it nonetheless after reading the many other positive reviews it received. I’ve had it for over a year now and I’ve got no complaints. I regularly use it to cook pizzas from scratch using the Breville BREBOV800PS13 13-Inch Pizza Stone (not included, bought separately) and it works great; uses less energy and doesn’t heat the whole kitchen when I’m just making a few pizzas for the family (I still use larger pizza stones and a standard oven when guests come over, though).I also bake a loaf of bread in the Breville every week and it turns out fine. The top does get charred a bit since it rises so close to the upper heating elements, so one thing I do to avoid this is to slip a length of aluminium foil between the element and the top of the loaf after about 10 minutes’ cooking time (to make sure the dough isn’t sticky any longer) and it prevents the charring.The oven is used pretty much every other day to cook meats, sausages, potatoes, you name it. Heck, I cook brownies and cakes in it too. Basically, it replaces our 30-inch oven whenever we want to cook something that fits inside the Breville.I’ve used it to toast bread and it does work, but I prefer a dedicated toaster for this: toasts faster and doesn’t seem to dry out the bread as much.There’s lots of “programs” on the oven but to me they don’t seem to be more than just presets; I normally just use “bake”, “broil” and (seldom) “toast” and play with the temperature and time as needed. The oven light is pretty useful; I don’t think many toaster ovens have one.All in all I’m very satisfied with my purchase (even if my wallet isn’t as much).

I bought this oven based on reviews, I am not impressed. The convection fan is very noisy ( rattling sound ) I can hear the it rattle from twenty feet away. The cooking trays provided are flimsy and warp when heated. The outside of the oven gets very hot.For the price Paid I thought it would of been of higher quality. We have owned similar ovens @ a fraction of the price that were very good. My wife wanted a toaster oven so I told her to pick the best. This was not a good choice.
Of all my brand new appliances this is my absolute favourite! It kicked my Gordon Ramsay toaster to the curb, and reduced my microwave to a bagged popcorn machine lol! It makes amazing toast, cooks like a charm, no cold spots! It even lights up, and looks so nice I actually WANT to leave it on the counter. No more hiding the heavy toaster because it’s been replaced. This is an investment you will not regret! It’s not the old toaster oven of yesteryear – pound for pound it gives my oven a run for it’s money!
I’ve had this oven for a couple years now.The door started making this horrendous screeching noise when opening and closing.The rotary encoders in the selector knobs have also become buggy so they skip over menu items.Another issue this oven has from day one is that you cant just hit “start”. The oven has to take a few seconds to “wake up” after you hit one of the controls before it’ll respond. It’s pretty infuriating.I bought two of these. One for myself, and one for my in laws and they both have the same exact problems.
I was expecting a good quality oven and they delivered. I was really impressed with the quality of the materials. After years of toaster ovens with thin metal shells and even.thinner baking trays this is closer to a full sized oven than the pale imitations. The broiler pan is as heavy as the one that comes with a standard oven. The inside is easy to clean. In terms of performance the instructions are clear. I am still experimenting with the settings and temperature settings. Right from the box I not only got great toast. I have mad or roasted vegetables, chicken and brownies all came out well. This is an appliance worth the price. As an aside I was also looking to replace my.microwave. Between this oven and a single induction burner I can do every thing that I could do with a microwave. That makes this oven even more of a.bargain
Just finished celebrating the New Year with my almost new but broken oven ! The thing lights up like a Xmas tree and crackling sounds can be heard just like a fireplace … Maybe I should have paid a million dollars to have an oven that lasts more than six months … I know have I to invest time to see if the thing still has a warranty … Merry Xmas Breville !After contacting Breville, they offered to replace the defective item with a brand new one. Shipping was free and got the new oven within a week [07 days]. Great and easy service. Thank you Breville ; )
