The Breville Mini Smart Oven is the smallest version of our favorite full-size toaster oven. This review originally appeared in a 2014 issue of Cook's Illustrated magazine. Since that time, we have used the Mini Smart Oven for an additional 2 years in our kitchen and confirmed with Breville that the product remains unchanged. The Mini Smart Oven still receives our highest recommendation for a small-size toaster oven.

Breville Mini Smart Oven

WINNER - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

With four quartz heating elements, an easy-to-use dial for selecting from eight cooking functions, three baking rack positions, and a front slide-out crumb tray that simplifies cleanup, this small version of the Breville Smart Oven is well designed and a solid performer. Toast was a tad uneven to start (we got browning primarily on the middle of our slices) but improved greatly on batches in succession. Likewise for broiling: Follow-up rounds melted cheese more evenly across the surface of open-faced tuna melts. Its real brilliance was baking: A bone-in, skin-on chicken breast emerged golden brown and evenly roasted, and a batch of eight cookies baked evenly. With the same heating technology as the bigger Breville, it was also accurate. After just five minute of preheating, it reached its target temperature of 350 degrees and stayed near there, never dipping below 319 degrees or above 375.

How We Tested Toaster Ovens

The Breville Mini Smart Oven is the smallest version of our favorite full-size toaster oven. We selected 10 toaster ovens, priced from about $40 to about $270, based on information about availability and popularity provided by major manufacturers. All but one of the toaster ovens had convection capability. We made toast and prepared Best Baked Potatoes, Simple Broiled Asparagus, Weeknight Roast Chicken, slice-and-bake sugar cookies, tuna melts, and frozen pepperoni pizza in each model. We used thermocouples to track the accuracy of each oven when set to 350 degrees over 2 hours, and tested how well various baking pans and sheets fit in each oven. Finally, we evaluated the user-friendliness of each oven, noting how intuitive the ovens were to operate and how easy they were to clean. We also made 365 slices of toast in our winning oven to evaluate its durability over a year of simulated use.
