If you have a small kitchen space or you are heading off to the dorm this year, then getting a Breville mini smart oven would make a great investment.

If your space does not have the room for a full size stove with oven, or you simply don’t want big appliances for simply yourself or maybe two people, then you may want to consider what is called a “mini oven”

Breville BOV650XL Compact 4-Slice Smart Oven with Element IQ

This is not your average toaster oven that has been around a long time, this does all the things a larger oven can do and more just in a more compact size.  It not only toasts your bread for breakfast with just the right heat but it can also bake those cookies as well as cook that small roast.

It has four individual heating elements that can be adjusted to get just the right amount of heat depending on what you are cooking, backing, toasting or broiling.  With up to 1500 watts of power you can cook anything you need without burning.

The problem with the basic toaster oven is there was not much choice for heating, you simply toasted something and sometimes broiled it and that was it.  But with this oven all the guess work is taken out.

You can adjust to the temperature and whether to broil or bake or toast yourself or you can use the 8 pre-set settings for bake, broil, roast, cookies, re-heat, pizza, bagel and toast, which can all be adjusted for your own tastes.

This oven sits nicely on the counter, and can be your answer to saving money on food when away at school.  It measures in at 16.5 x 15.5 x 10.25 which does not take up too much room.

This is an energy efficient product that does not heat up the entire room like a full size oven would, which is great if you simply want to heat up something fast, as a larger oven would take much longer.

Perfect also for that last minute cook, or someone who loves to cook but doesn’t need a full size stove or oven, and needs something that will pre-heat quickly.

This would make the perfect gift for any student going away to school this year, or getting their own place with a small kitchen space.

This Breville oven also has an easy to read backlit blue LCD screen so you can see your temperature at a glance.  It has 3 rack positions and a tempered glass door so you can see everything going on inside.

You can get these Breville ovens at many small appliance stores, and department stores, but you can also get them online at sites such as Amazon.  Shopping online is a great way to see a much larger assortment and to shop from home, and in many cases you can get it shipped for free right to your door.

So, if you have a small space, or you have not been cooking much simply because you didn’t want to start a large oven up for one person, then consider the Breville smart oven and get cooking again!
