Breville BOV650XL Toaster Oven

Our Rating: ★★★★½ 

The Breville BOV650XL Compact 4-Slice Smart Oven with Element IQ is a compact, stainless steel toaster oven that is both attractive and multi-functional. This oven is very similar to its “big brother” the Breville Smart Oven, but comes in a more compact size and will work well for those who don’t have the room for the BOV800XL. The toaster oven uses 1800 watts of power and features a 0.6 cubic foot capacity interior that will hold up to four slices of toast or up to a twelve inch pizza at one time.

Featuring the unique Element IQ technology, the Breville Compact 4-Slice Smart Oven has a smart sensor that increases energy efficiency by continually adjusting and controlling the temperature and putting power where it’s needed most.

The toaster oven has 8 preset functions including toasting, bagel, broil, reheat, and roast, along with pizza and cookies functions. There is a dial setting for adjusting the timer, which can be set up to 2 hours. The dial is also used to adjust the temperature and to choose the darkness setting for toasting, from light to dark.

A backlit LCD screen displays the current function setting, the temperatures, along with any adjustments that have been made. The color of the LCD goes from orange to blue, indicating oven readiness and the end of the cooking cycle.
