# 1 Rated Convection Oven
Often overlooked, a convection oven can be a key tool in your kitchen. These counter top appliances are perfect for small dishes and small jobs such as baking, broiling, re-heating and other kitchen tasks. Yes, people make jokes about the inability to make toast properly in a toaster oven but why would you even want to make toast in one when you already have a toaster? Ignore the less than witty jokesters and get a high quality convection and use it for the things it was designed to do.
This convection oven by Breville is the best of the ovens that we tested. Well made and with ample cooking power, you will be able to handle most baking and cooking tasks with this product. There are 10 cooking functions for you to use: Toast 6 slices (yes, I know I just trashed using convection ovens for making toast), Bagel, Bake, Roast, Grill, Pizza, Cookies, Reheat, Warm and Slow Cook. The manual (included) will help you decide which function you need and how to use it. Overall this appliance is very easy to use.
Breville has a propriety system called Smart Element iQ. This system transfers heat accurately across 5 quartz elements for precise and stable heat. This system works very well and the end result is well made foods prepared quickly and perfectly. Super-fast 1800 W preheat helps you to get your meals on the table more quickly.
How Does A Convection Oven Work?
Convection ovens have a built in fan that circulates the hot air within your oven. Convection (the air movement) speeds the cooking process by raising hotter air and sinking colder air. This leads to less dense air for quicker and more uniform heating.Once you try it you will be amazed by the results you can get with this convection oven.
We liked how sturdy this convection oven is. The inside chamber is non-stick which really helps with clean up. You can usually just wipe the mess out with a towel. There is an inside light to help you watch what is being cooked and a nice handle on the top of the door for ease of opening.
The LCD display controls are very well laid out and easy to read. One of the unique and very nice features is a slow cook option. This allows you to set and forget a dish for up to 10 hours at slow cook, then the oven will automatically keep it warm. When you want to slow cook a tough piece of meat you will find this a wonderful option and it keeps you from running your oven all day. The casing is stainless steel and the whole unit is solid and well made.
The Breville Smart Pro Convection Oven is our #1 choice for convection ovens.
