Smart Oven

Known as the Smart Oven, the toaster oven has Element IQ technology. What does this mean for you? The technology allows the Breville BOV800XL to remember your taste preferences and cooks your food per these preferences. The nine pre-set functions allow you to cook each food on the settings with one touch. No more guessing on how long it may take to cook your toast or bagel!  If you’ve saved taste preferences, the pre-set settings will also adjust to this.

Easy to Use 

The Breville BOV800XL is a user friendly toaster oven that anyone in your family will be able to operate. While it may be smaller than your conventional oven, its heating power is likely just as good. It is still large enough to accommodate a pizza pan, and a standard 12 x 12″ baking pan.

The Breville BOV800XL is 1800 watt powered, capable of cooking anything from a baked lasagna to grilled fish. It has an LCD screen that clearly states the settings and cooking time.

Once the Breville is preheated, the LCD screen turns orange. Directly below the LCD screen there are two temperature controls, the function button, the defrost button, and time dials.

When you open the oven door, the Breville BOV800XL automatically pops out the rack using the auto-eject feature helping to ensure you are safely removing your hot food.

Have a large family and need to make a big Sunday breakfast? The Breville BOV800XL allows you to toast up to 6 pieces of bread easily.

Have you ever forgotten to turn your appliance off once you were done with it?  There’s a handy feature built into the Breville BOV800XL. It shuts off the toaster oven once the preset time has ended.

You will never have to worry about burning your food while you’re working on other things. This is also a great safety feature.

It also comes with a pizza pan, a baking pan, and a broil rack to make cooking anything in the oven a breeze.

Easy to Clean

Do you hate cleaning your conventional oven?  The Breville BOV800XL is a great alternative to using and cleaning your oven. The interior is nonstick, making it effortless to wipe the oven down with a damp cloth. Below the three layers of racks, you can easily pull out the removable crumb tray that catches all traces of your cooked food.


While this toast oven boasts several features, there are some cons that need to be noted.

No Light

The Breville BOV800XL does not have a light within the unit, which may make checking your food a little more difficult. This may also affect your ability to clean the oven.

Too Hot

While all appliances may become warm during use, the Breville BOV800XL door and top may become hot to the touch.

This could be a danger when placing the toaster oven too closely to other appliances or your kitchen wall. It’s best to make sure you keep the unit a few spaces from any other appliances to ensure safety.


The Breville BOV800XL is large enough to fit a pizza, but may not be deep enough for some pans to fit within it. Double check the size of your pans before deciding to cook with them to ensure they fit safely.

Compared to Other Products

It’s always nice to have a comparison when it comes to appliances, especially if you’re looking at things such as price, size, and efficiency. We’ve compared the Breville BOV800XL to other products that may also be an option for you.

For example, if you’re looking for a smaller version of this unit, you may want to try the Breville BOV650XL. This unit is the little sister version of the Breville BOV800XL. With the same high power wattage, the BOV650XL only boasts room for a 10 x 10″ pan, and only has 8 preset functions.

Another larger option is the Breville BOV845BSS. If you’re looking for something with more presets and larger space, a convection oven may be the one you’re looking for. The Breville BOV845BSS has 10 presets and a light inside the oven. This is a convection oven, so it is a little larger than the regular toaster oven option.


If you’re in the market for something to replace your oven, you should look into purchasing a toaster oven. The Breville BOV800XL is a great purchase for someone looking to use a smaller, more conventional option to cooking an assortment of foods.

In fact, this toaster oven could potentially replace both of your microwave and your toaster, as well as their oven! The Breville BOV800XL could be the perfect appliance if you’re looking for something that can do it all!
