Not all countertop ovens or toaster ovens can perform the tasks of a real oven and still toast bread. Until now, we had not been able to find one toaster oven or countertop convection oven that was able to toast, cook, bake, roast, broil and reheat perfectly.
With the Breville Smart Oven Convection Toaster Oven, we were able to achieve all the cooking, baking, roasting, broiling and yes, also toasting bread. Because of the “Element IQ”, the pre-set functions and the versatility in personal settings, we have been able to satisfy different preferences of doneness for toast, bagels, pizza, cookies, breads, casseroles, vegetables and more than I can list. The Breville Smart Oven Convection Toaster Oven has allowed me to cook, bake, toast, broil etc. more quickly than with our larger oven and with much less energy expended (mine and the electric!).
