The Breville Smart Oven began with the simple fact that different foods require different methods of heating: some, like baked goods, need to be cooked evenly; others, like meats, need to be seared on top.

This is how the Breville Smart Oven stands apart: whatever the food, it adjusts its heat distribution for perfect results.
