Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro
The Best Air-Fryer Toaster Oven: Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro
Since air fryers are essentially mini convection ovens, it’s no surprise that several manufacturers have added air-frying functions to toaster ovens to create a hybrid appliance that can toast, bake, broil, and air-fry a variety of foods. We wanted to see how the food cooked in these air-fryer toaster ovens compared with the food cooked in our favorite air fryer, the Philips TurboStar Airfryer, Avance Digital, and our top-rated toaster oven, the Breville Smart Oven. Could a single air-fryer toaster oven combine the functions of these two handy appliances?
Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer Pro
WINNER - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Our top pick had intuitive controls and consistently made the best food in the bunch. We liked its clearly labeled knobs and digital interface that displayed the time, temperature, and cooking setting. It made excellent toast (it has adjustable settings that you can customize depending on your slice of bread); produced tender, browned broiled asparagus; yielded roasted chicken that was golden all over; and made air-fryer french fries and chicken Parmesan on par with recipes made in our favorite traditional air fryer. To use the air-frying function, we had to preheat the oven, which we found a bit annoying. We also thought that the oven was a bit hard to clean—grease clung to its sides and door after roasting the chicken and the air-fryer basket wasn’t nonstick, making it tough to remove melted cheese from. This model can also accommodate more food than our favorite air fryer, which is helpful if you frequently cook for more than two people.
We maintain strict objectivity in all testing.*
