The Breville Smart Oven is a great appliance to have in your kitchen. Most of the time you can use this to substitute for a larger convection oven. However, the Smart Oven is much more energy efficient and it can fit into even the smallest of kitchens. For instance, if you live in the city and have only a tiny kitchenette, as is getting common these days, you can use this Smart Oven for almost all your oven needs.

The oven comes with different settings, so you can manage the temperature perfectly. It comes with some re-programmed settings, but you can also program in your own settings.

The magnetic door really does help prevent burns, and when in use it seals tightly in order to prevent energy loss.

The design is stylish, and despite the fact that it has a stainless steel surface it's difficult to leave fingerprint marks on it.

The timer will shut off the oven at the end of programmed cycles - this is great, since you don't have to monitor too careful. And this is much smarter than other ovens which simply beep when they're done!

The toaster also works great, so you can use this to toast bread and bagels when required. When you're toasting for a few people, this is a good alternative to regular toasters which do only two (or maybe four) slices at a time - with the Smart Oven you can do up to 6 pieces at a time.

The cord is a bit on the shorter side at only three feet. Of course this is enough for most kitchens, however if you would like to extend it then you will need to use an extender.

The crumb tray pulls out easily from the front. This means that there is effort at all to clean it. Again, this is a smarter design than most toasters and toaster ovens, which require a lot of effort to pull out the crumb tray.

The top of the oven gets quite hot when you're cooking, so I'd advise against storing anything semi-permanently on top of the oven (such as plates, bowls of fruit or vases). However, you can keep ceramic plates with food on them while you are cooking, and the oven will keep the food warm!

Overall, this is just about the best toaster oven on the market, and the perfect solution for those with smaller kitchens.
