Breville BMO850BSS the Smooth Wave countertop microwave oven, Brushed Stainless Steel

Breville BMO850BSS the Smooth countertop Wave microwave oven

by Breville

SHORTCUTS AND ONE TOUCH AUTO SETTINGS: Designed with shortcuts panel on the inside door for commonly used tasks such as melting chocolate, softening butter, reheating pizza and more; Set your favorites with one touch and get great results every time

The Breville BMO850BSS is the hands-down best countertop microwave we tested, and it's easy to see why. We liked the way this microwave cooked our turkey, chicken and potatoes, and we loved that it automatically detected and adjusted the cooking time based on whether it was defrosted or already cooked. The EasyTouch control panel is easy to use, and we loved that Breville included a sound suite and mute button, which mean less noise and more pops and crunches when cooking. This microwave also included a turntable, which is a nice feature to have, and we loved the soft-close door. The smooth, low temperature cooking is gentle on food, and we loved that, unlike other microwaves, the Smooth Wave doesn't dry out food like most other microwaves. The controls are simple, and the microwave automatically sets the optimal time. The Smooth Wave is clinically quiet, and we loved that, unlike some other countertop microwaves, it doesn't use heat to dry food. We also loved the A Bit More feature, which allowed us to add a few extra minutes when we needed it. This microwave is also easy to clean, and it's relatively lightweight and compact, which makes it a good option for smaller kitchens. The only con we found was that, while the microwave is very quiet, it could still be a bit louder.

Breville BMO650SIL the Compact Wave Soft Close Countertop Microwave Oven, Silver

Breville BMO650SIL the Compact Wave Close Soft Countertop Microwave Oven

by Breville

The Breville Compact Wave Soft Close with a 25L compact footprint and an easy shortcuts and foods menu is big on convenience, and is designed to precisely reheat, defrost and cook; A countertop microwave engineered with an 80% quieter soft close door

The Breville BMO650SIL is a well-designed countertop microwave that performed well in our tests. The cook menu features simple one-touch reheat, defrost, and popcorn buttons, and it comes with a few preset options that, when combined with the Eco function, let you quickly cook a variety of foods like potatoes, vegetables, pizza, and frozen meals. While the Eco feature does help this microwave cook food faster, the microwave took almost six minutes to heat up a 16-ounce cup of water. The microwave's timer is programmable, and the door has a soft close feature, which, when combined with the microwave's auto reheat setting, is quieter than our previous pick. The defrost feature worked well, but it took almost six minutes to defrost a 15-ounce bag of frozen vegetables. The microwave does not have an automatic reheat setting, but you do have the option to turn the microwave off after cooking or defrosting food, and when you do, the microwave will re-heat your food in 60 seconds. The microwave is compact, and it has a large 25-liter capacity, and it has a stainless steel interior that's easy to clean. The Breville BMO650SIL has touch controls, and it comes with three cooking menus and 10 presets. The microwave also has nine power levels, and it has a Child Lock feature, which, when activated, locks the microwave door so your child can't open the door. The microwave also comes with a kid-friendly menu button, which, when pressed, displays fun child-friendly cartoon characters. The microwave's keyboard is large and easy to read, and it comes with a clock, a night light, and an auto sleep function, which, when activated, turns off the microwave after five minutes of inactivity.

Breville BOV845BKS Smart Oven Pro, Countertop Convection Oven, Black Sesame

Breville BOV845BKS Smart Oven Pro

by Breville

LCD Display: LCD display to easily access the built in smart functionality, choose from 10 cooking functions; The LCD also indicates when pre-heat has completed and automatically begins to count down on the cooking time for perfect results

The Breville Smart Oven Pro with Element iQ System is a capable countertop oven with plenty to offer, from its 5 independent quartz elements to its 10 cooking functions. It excels at roasting (it takes our half-chicken from 1 hour to 45 minutes), and while its baking functions are a bit spotty, it tends to cook things evenly. It also cooks pizza well, although its crispness will vary depending on its size. The oven's broiler function works well, and while the multifunction control dial is a bit small and can be difficult to use, the Element iQ system's intuitive interface makes it easy to use. The oven's interior light is nice, but its tilt feature isn't as useful as it could be. Its truest strength, though, is as a slow cooker, and it's the only oven we tested that can cook for up to 10 hours at low temperatures. The Breville BOV845BKS Smart Oven Pro with Element iQ System isn't perfect, but it's an impressive countertop oven that gets the job done.

Breville BMO870BSS1BUC1 Combi Wave 3 in 1, Brushed Stainless Steel

Breville BMO870BSS1BUC1 Combi 3 Wave in 1

by Breville

SMART COOK, SMART REHEAT & SMART DEFROST With 19 built-in smart presets including Smart Cook, Smart Reheat and Smart Defrost, the Combi Wave 3 in 1 puts all the power at your fingertips. Smooth low temperature delivers heat evenly without overheating and drying out, allowing you to cook with ease, reheat with precision and delicately defrost your favorite dishes.

Breville's new Combi Wave 3-in-1 appliance is an appealing option for anyone who likes to cook, but isn't a fan of spending hours on end in the kitchen. Its Air Fry function cooks food at 390°F, which is much hotter than your typical air fryer, and achieves results that are crispier and crisper. The Convection Oven function bakes at 425°F, which is ideal for roasting chicken, beef, and lamb, while the Inverter Microwave function can defrost food, warm soup, and reheat cooked food. The Microwave function is not as fast as a dedicated microwave, but it gets the job done. The air fryer and Convection Oven also work quickly, and it's easy to adjust power settings on the fly. The appliance's smart inverter technology uses sensors to detect when food requires more or less intensity, so you'll never have to worry that you'll burn something. The Breville BMO870BSS1BUC1 also has two an adjustment knobs, so you can increase or decrease the intensity for each function. The appliance has a touchscreen display, but it's a bit small, and it's somewhat confusing to navigate. For example, the touchscreen display shows the cooking times for each setting, but there are no labels or numbers to guide you. While it's not perfect, the Breville Combi Wave 3-in-1 is an impressive appliance that makes it easy to cook healthy meals.

Calphalon Performance Air Fry Convection Oven, Countertop Toaster Oven, Dark Stainless Steel

Calphalon Performance Air Convection Fry Oven

by Calphalon

Durable dark stainless steel metal construction provides a modern addition to any kitchen

The Calphalon Performance Air Fry Convection Oven is a very versatile countertop appliance. The convection bake function produces crisper, more evenly cooked baked goods. The keep-warm feature is ideal for keeping cooked foods warm, and the oven's interior is large enough to hold a 12" pizza. The standout feature of this oven, though, is its air-frying function. Unlike conventional air-fryers, which use a hot plate or an oven's broiler element, the Calphalon Performance Air Fry Convection Oven uses a quartz heating element, which makes it faster to preheat and cooks food more evenly. The oven's easy-to-use control panel is also clear to read, and the oven has a pleasant, easy to clean interior. Unfortunately, the Calphalon Performance Air Fryer Convection Oven is pricey, and it only has three preset cooking functions. But if you're in the market for an all-purpose countertop oven, this one is a great option.
