I think the best thing about countertop ovens is their convenience they’re small and they heat up quickly without you having to crank up your big oven that they can be harsh on your food. the elements simply cycle on and off they’re a bit all-or-nothing which makes them handy for leftovers or toast but not much else bigger built-in ovens on the other hand are great for baking and roasting.
They take a lot of time and energy to get up to temperature so the challenge for us was how do we create a new kind of countertop oven one that can bake and roast exceptionally like a big oven up with fast radiant heat for Peterson toast our mission was to get the best of both worlds looking for an answer isn’t just about design at Breville the Test Kitchen worked closely with our design team trying hundreds of recipes in all kinds of different ovens.
TShe more we tested the more we came across the same problems we couldn’t find an oven that was good at all tasks toasting was on even cakes were cracked before they had a chance to rise and pizzas were burning on the top before the base was crisp we learned that different foods need different heats in different areas looking back the solution now seems simple create variable power eating elements.
that can operate independently of each other this gives us control of exactly how much heat gets pushed into each part of the oven no more just on or off we call this element IQ and it’s the technology at the heart of the Breville BOV900BSS Smart Oven.
we spent months and months in the kitchen taste testing fine-tuning until every type of food came out perfectly the tastes were using tents heat to evenly Brown both sides at once for baking cakes and souffles we use convection heat that’s more gentle like turning down a dimmer switch in your house we create the perfect environment for helping cakes to rise for roasting.
we moved more heat to the bottom so the inside can cook through without burning the top for pizzas we achieve the perfect balance between melted toppings and crispy crusts you select whether you have a fresh or frozen pizza and we adjust the heat and cooking time to suit we wanted the oven to be incredibly simple to use in fact whether you’re baking roasting or toasting it is turn the dial press Start and the oven does the rest the smart oven recommends the cooking time and temperature based on your selection.
it knows when to turn on the convection fan and the oven automatically switches off once it’s finished cooking the toast rack even slides forward automatically as you open the door using hidden magnets we also wanted the accessories to complement the quality of the oven so the baking tray and broil rack are made using hard-wearing and m/l the crumb tray pulls out the front to make it easy to clean a large nonstick 13 inch pizza tray is included and you can also purchase a pizza crisper or a ceramic pizza stone also available is unique temperature resistant bamboo chopping board to fit on top of the oven it’s great for creating extra storage space on the counter we’ve also designed.
The compact smart oven for those with smaller kitchens which has a lot of the features of its Big Brother there’s already a lot of consumer reviews for the Smart Oven online and I think I’ve read all of them it’s great to hear that people are so excited with the results they’re getting a lot of people are telling us they’re not even using their big ovens anymore the Smart Oven really does bake beautifully and we think we’ve achieved what we intended to the countertop oven does everything well you.
