If you have been following me even in the least, you know that I love toaster ovens – they are practical and efficient – but I’m particularly impartial to Breville toaster ovens. In this guide, I will help you choose the best Breville toaster oven for your needs based on countless hours of research.

Reasons Why Breville

These are the pros of Breville toaster ovens that are common to all of them:

  • Brand authority. Unlike some Chinese brands, Breville has been around for a long time and has proven itself time and time again.
  • Longevity. Breville toaster ovens are Buy-It-For-Life material. And in the event that they do break, customer support is exceptional, going to great lengths even out-of-warranty.
  • Versatility. Every toaster oven on this list will have different capabilities, but generally, they can handle almost any kind of cooking awesomely using cooking functions like roast, bake, broil, toast, bagel, pizza, reheat, warm, cookies, and grill.
  • Easy to use. The controls are really easy to use and uninvolved.
  • Just great taste. Breville’s quality of cooking is simply top of the glass, ensuring perfect results every time.
  • Easy to clean. Breville’s toaster ovens all feature a non-stick coating and removable crumb trays, so the cleanup is a breeze

Element IQ and Design

Another reason why I like Breville is because of their implementation of cooking presets they call the Element IQ system. At its core, it’s the same as with other big brands’ versions: it controls the amount of hot air, transfers heat intelligently across, controls the time, and has a “super convection” fan to cook food the best way it can. However, with smart Element IQ technology, you get much more control over the temperature, time, and other settings.

What Element also does is remember the changes you make to the preset. For example, say you pop in a pizza, and you choose the Pizza preset. Usually, the oven would bake it for 15 minutes because that includes defrosting it, but you know you need to bake it – not defrost – so you dial it down to 10 minutes, and next time the oven will remember that.

In terms of design, we can disagree there, but I prefer the clean and industrial stainless steel look of Breville to other brands. They look top-of-the-shelf and fit in any interior.

Cons

All of this comes at a price: Breville is more expensive than the others, many times substantially so. Part of the reason is that they position themselves as a premium brand, part of the reason is that their products are really in a different league. It’s really worth it. Try to snag one during a sale.

Another con is the fact that the exterior of almost every Breville toaster oven gets hot during cooking, so the manufacturer advises against putting it under cabinets, or storing stuff on it.

Breville-Specific Accessories

Breville toaster ovens come with enough pans and racks, but some other accessories really crank the experience up a notch. And Breville not only makes excellent toaster ovens (and other kitchen appliances) but also best-in-class accessories for them.

What you really need to get is the Bamboo cutting board. It checks so many boxes:

  • It looks great and fits a Breville like a glove
  • It’s a good and eco-friendly cutting board
  • It helps you leverage the space on top (since Brevilles get hot it’s not recommended to put anything there)

I will include a link to the board for each toaster oven size below. I will also include a link to a pizza crisper and a pizza stone of the correct size.

Alternatively, I have covered other miscellaneous accessories and the best (oftentimes cheaper) third-party alternatives in my Toaster Oven Accessory Buying Guide.

Best Breville Toaster Oven: Your Choice

Most of the toaster ovens listed here share the same Breville secret sauce, but with a few notable differences:

  • size
  • capacity
  • price
  • number of pre-programmed cooking functions
  • features like slow cooking, air frying, oven light, and auto-eject rack

My Choice: Breville Smart Oven Air

  • Use super convection to reduce cooking time by up to 30%
  • Toast, Bagel, Broil, Bake, Roast, Warm, Pizza, Proof, Air Fry, Reheat, Cookies, Slow Cook and Dehydrate 
  • Extra Large Capacity
  • Interior light
Pros
  • Massive interior – it can cook for a family of four, you can roast a whole Thanksgiving turkey in it
  • Other pros mentioned above
Cons

The Breville BOV900BSS Smart Oven Air is the convection toaster oven to rule them all: it cooks whatever you throw at it, and does so splendidly. It’s really big, so it can cook for a whole family (and that’s what I need), but make sure you have plenty of counter space. It’s also the most versatile with the air fry, dehydrate, and slow cook functions. Read my full review.
