When you're short on counter space, you need multifunction appliances that truly earn their real estate. A toaster oven is fine. But one that's also an air fryer? Yes, please. That's why we're impressed with the Breville Smart Oven Air, which also has a dehydrate function (jerky, anyone?). Right now this sleek machine from one of the top names in kitchen goods is on sale for a whopping $180 off at Amazon, down from $500 to just $320.
You'll get free shipping from Amazon on this product. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more, including speedy delivery and discounts at Whole Foods. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.
The Breville Smart Oven Air can be a lifesaver during the holidays. With an extra large capacity, it can fit everything from a 9-by-13 casserole dish to a 14-pound turkey (and on regular days, nine slices of toast). It's a boon in warmer months too, because it won't heat up your house the way your regular oven will.
One reviewer of nearly 5,000 five-star fans said the Breville Smart Oven Air actually replaced their large oven for a lot of their cooking. “This is really a true oven that can cook anything that your main oven can,” he said. “Most interesting is the air-frying mode. Not only does this eliminate the need for a separate appliance, this is a great way to cook frozen snack foods like fries and onion rings, evenly browning and crisping perfectly.”
In super-convection mode this Breville circulates a greater volume of hot air than normal ovens. Able to detect (and eliminate) cold spots, it's a champ at cooking (or reheating) foods evenly.
Programming options are impressive. For example, there's a “Phase Cook” feature that allows you to program two different cooking modes one after another. “You can for example quickly crisp and brown the outside of a roast and automatically switch to a lower, slower cooking method for the remainder of the time,” this reviewer explains. “This is one of my favorite features, and makes it possible to achieve incredible results with little effort.”
Even pros love it: “I am a professional chef and this product delivers! First and foremost it is a top-of-the-line toaster oven the size of a small oven.... It has no hot spots because of its 6 computer controlled heating elements and a turbo fan to seal the deal.... Incredibly simple to use and accurate at low or high temperatures. Yes you can dehydrate to make MSG-free beef jerky, yes you can caramelize meats with precision, yes you can even proof bread! The darn thing preheats in 2 to 4 mins!”
“My wife and I have found that the Breville is our go-to oven for most things,” raved another shopper. “It pre-heats faster than our large floor oven and it does not heat-up the entire kitchen. I've found the controls to be both intuitive and useful. I especially like the temperature control selections for broiling which our large oven does not offer. I can choose "low broiling" on our Breville while our floor oven has one choice "max heat." The "low broil" temp is way better at putting a crisp on left-over french fries without burning them.”
Grab this workhorse at a phenomenal sale price while you can. Save $180, transform your holidays and make cooking a joy again.
