Breville Smart Convection Oven

Before Kevin and I got married, we talked about what we REALLY needed in a kitchen.  We didn't want a bunch of small appliances sitting on our counters.  When we lived at our condos uptown, neither of us had a toaster (we just used the oven) or any small appliances.  We just got by with our oven, microwave and a small blender.  

So we knew how to go without if you know what I mean.

This Breville Smart Convection Oven is the best thing we have on the counter.  We use it all.the.time.  One of my Mom's friends gave it to us as a shower gift and when we plugged it in after our honeymoon, we knew we'd use it often.  And we do.

We cook pizzas in it, heat leftovers when we don't have time to fire up our big oven, it keeps things warm.  

One of my favorite things is that I can put a dish in while it is preheating, set the timer and it doesn't start cooking it until it is preheated.  Then when the timer goes off, the oven turns off.  So if you're out back with the dog, the food has stopped cooking and you don't have to run in and take it out immediately.

It bakes, roasts, toasts, broils, reheats, warms.  It really does anything you could want.  

So add this to your Christmas or birthday list.  You'll be glad you did!

Helpful! We have lots of little gadets (hidden away), but we don't have one of these : )

What an awesome mini appliance. And so much better than a microwave that emits radiation.
Life as I know it

We have a regular old pop up toaster but I am CRAVING a toaster oven - it's a House Purchase. There is just zero room in our apt.

I have had that on my wish list for awhile now! Glad to hear from someone who actually has it!

We loooove our toaster oven. I use it almost every night at dinner! Potatoes, roasted veggies, warming up leftovers....I couldn't live without it!
