What Are The Breville Smart Oven Main Functions?
Roast: Roast mode is designed to cook thick cuts of meat or poultry in the Breville Smart Oven. Ideally, roasting adds a crisp exterior to what you're cooking while leaving the insides moist and tender. Note that when you're using Roast, use rack position 6 in the oven (the rack positions are indicated on the oven's window to help you know where position 6 is located).
Bake: Bake mode in the Breville Smart Oven is designed to use heat evenly in the top and bottom of your oven for cooking cakes, muffins, and similar food. Baking also works well with dense savory frozen dishes like lasagna or pot pies in your included baking pan or on the wire rack. Like in Roast mode, use oven rack position 6 when using Bake mode, and use the rack position indicator on the oven window to tell where position 6 is located.
Broil: Broiling is about searing the top side of your food at high temperatures. Broil mode in the Breville Smart Oven uses the heating elements at the top of the oven at their highest power to crisp open-faced sandwiches, thinly sliced meat, fish, sausages, and vegetables.
Toast: Toast is what you might expect in this smart oven, same as in a toaster oven but with a lot more control. Toast mode basically cooks the top layer of bread while keeping the inside soft and moist. Use Toast mode in the Breville Smart Oven to also heat and crisp English muffins and frozen waffles. Use oven position 4 in Toast mode (see the rack position indicator on the window). The oven is designed to fit up to 9 slices of bread. Use the "Time" dial on the oven's control panel to select the number of slices that you're toasting.
Bagel: Bagel mode in the Breville Smart Oven is designed to cook the inside of a bagel, crumpet, or specialty thick bread and only lightly toast the outside. Use rack position 4 in Bagel mode (see the positions indicated on the window). The oven is designed to fit up to 10 bagel slices.
