Smaller than the Breville Smart oven, this 1800 watt counter-top oven has smart features, but takes up less space. The oven’s easy-to-read back-lit LCD screen displays current settings. This oven’s Element IQ “smart” sensor technology adjusts automatically for each of the eight preset functions to deliver efficient and correct cooking time and temperature. With eight pre-set functions, Element IQ automatically adjusts the power and calculates the cooking time.
The LCD also illuminates orange to indicate preheating and cooking, then blue to indicate the end of the cooking cycle. Convenient features include a Celsius conversion button, and a button for frozen foods defrost. Accessories included with oven: one 10-inch by 10-inch enamel baking pan and one 10-inch by 10-inch enamel broil rack. There is an included one year warranty.

Here are some great features of the Breville BOV800XL:
- 1800-watt 3/5-cubic-foot 4-slice oven with 8 preset functions and Element IQ technology
- Backlit LCD screen; time/temp control dial; defrost button; temperature-conversion button
- Tempered-glass door; 3 rack positions; removable crumb tray for quick cleanup
- Includes 10-by-10-inch enamel baking pan and 10-by-10-inch enamel broil rack
- Measures 16-1/2 by 14-1/4 by 10 inches; 1-year limited warranty
Fully electronic control promises to be more accurate in both functions. Some users did do miniature muffins, and they came out fine. It remembers your last setting for each cycle, so if you determine the ‘perfect’ setting for your favorite bagels or pizza, it’s preset and ready to start when selecting the cycle. The door is very easy to open and there is a nice crumb tray empties out the front, as opposed to some competitor models that open out the back! If you want a solid built, handsome, small oven that does a great job toasting every possible piece of pastry ever invented or will be invented, then the Breville oven is just the right ticket. This machine is built to last forever.
Here’s what one of the owners had to say about the BOV650XL:
I’m not one to write reviews, but this toaster is worth the time investment! This oven meets our family’s criteria: a small toaster/oven, not complicated to use, no convection cooking (I already have two full size convection ovens), and no annoying ticker timer. The day I came across this Breville toaster, I was impressed. This toaster is so easy to use, my 8 and 11 yr old can operate on their own with minimal supervision. I will definitely be recommending it to anyone who’s looking for a good toaster oven, and … is well worth every penny! (B. Sheyam)
