Toaster ovens have developed over recent years to become more than just machines which can help you make your morning toast. Many can cook, bake and even broil a wide variety of foods and the Breville BOV800Xl is no exception. This review will be looking at the design, features, pros, and cons of this machine to see whether or not it deserves a place in your kitchen at home! 


This Breville oven has “Element IQ Technology” which allows you smarter control over the heat settings for your cooking. With 1800-watts of power, having more precise controls over the heat setting for this oven should ensure that all of your food is cooked to perfection. The “Element IQ Technology” works by adjusting the power of the five individual quartz heating elements to cook food more quickly, evenly and efficiently, meaning not only will you save time, but you will also save on your electricity bills! There is a backlit LED screen which helps you to see your selections clearly, and easy to use dials for precise cooking.


This oven was designed with the customer in mind. It was constructed from very durable stainless-steel which not only makes it long-lasting, but also a striking yet attractive proposition to any kitchen. It is larger than most toaster ovens, with dimensions of 18.5 x 16.24 x 11.25 inches and this means that you can fit up to 6 slices of toast in it at once. The dials and screen have been made very visible on the front of the machine, so there will be no confusion when you are selecting the cooking settings.

The user friendly interface is the biggest positive on this machine. With a clear LED screen which displays temperatures and times, you are able to precisely cook whatever food item you have placed in the oven. The interface is simple, easy to use and works straight out of the box. Other positive elements to the machine include its aesthetics, the removable crumb tray (for easy cleaning) and the smart cooking technology which all result in less work for you when you are using it to cook a meal. 


The main complaint about this toaster oven is that on occasion the build quality may not be the best on the market. Elements of the oven have been known to fall off after heavy use, but these complaints are few and far between. The machine is also heavy at 28.6 pounds, which means that if your intentions were to use it in multiple rooms in the house, it may not be the best oven to choose to do so with.


The Breville oven is a heavyweight in every sense. It may come in at a whopping 28.6 pounds, but it has the big features to back its big weight up. The technology in the machine should make your life easier as it will automatically adapt cooking temperatures depending on which food stuff you decide to cook in the oven. It’s an attractive piece of machinery, easy to clean, and has many uses, so all in all you should at least consider this Breville oven toaster when making your choice!
