Know Your Oven
The Compact Smart Oven® is a smaller version of our popular Smart Oven® – this 1800 watt countertop oven has smart features, but takes up less space.
Independent heating elements put the power where it’s needed most. Elements adjust automatically for each of the eight preset functions to deliver the right cooking temperature at the right time. Presets include: toast, bagel, bake, roast, broil, pizza, cookies, and reheat. The oven remembers personal preferences as well.

The Breville Smart Oven® features Element IQ™ — a unique cooking technology that adjusts the power of the cooking elements for optimum results.
It is normal to notice the following during the cooking cycle:
- During the BROIL function, the bottom set of elements turn off while the top set is heating at full power.
- The ends of each heating element will glow more brightly than the middle of the element.
- The elements are heating even if they are not lighting up.
This cooking technology allows foods to cook more evenly and quickly, significantly reducing cooking times. The oven’s preset cooking temperatures and times, as well as the cooking temperature and time directions on prepackaged foods, may need to be changed depending on the recipe, the amount of food and your personal taste. We recommend experimenting with the temperature and time settings to produce the desired results.
The cooking temperature and time can be adjusted before or during the cooking cycle.
- The cooking temperature is displayed as the top figure on the LCD screen. Turn the TEMPERATURE dial to the left to reduce the temperature or to the right to increase the temperature. The cooking temperature can be adjusted in 10°F increments, from 120°F to a maximum of 450°F (or in the Celsius mode, 5°C increments, from 50°C to a maximum of 230°C.)
- The cooking time is displayed as the bottom figure on the LCD screen. Turn the TIME dial to the left to reduce the cooking time or to the right to increase the cooking time. The cooking time can be adjusted in one minute increments up to 1 hour, and in 5 minute increments between 1 and 2 hours.
Place the oven on a flat, dry surface. Ensure there is a minimum distance of 4″ (10cm) of space on both sides of the appliance. Ensure there are no items on top of the oven. Once the oven and all of the cleaned parts are dry, insert the washed Crumb Tray into the bottom of the oven, and the plug for the oven can be inserted into the outlet for use.
Getting The Oven Ready To Go
Remove the Crumb Tray, Wire Rack, Broil Rack, and Baking Pan from the poly-foam packaging.
The Wire Rack, Broil Rack, Baking Pan, and Pizza Pan are dishwasher-safe, though we recommend washing them by hand.
Wash the Crumb Tray, Wire Rack, Broil Rack, and Baking Pan in warm soapy water with a soft sponge. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Wipe the interior of the oven with a soft damp cloth or sponge. Dry thoroughly.
NOTE: Do not use abrasive cleansers, metal scouring pads, or metal utensils to clean any of the accessories as they may damage the porcelain enamel finish of the Baking Pan and Broil Rack.
Before First Use
Before cooking or baking for the first time we recommend running the oven without food for 15 minutes. There may be a slight odor during this initial heating period or when grease has built up within the oven cavity. Ensure there is proper ventilation by turning on a fan or opening a window. First unpack and assemble the oven as described within the Instruction Booklet.
Please note: There is a protective display covering the LCD panel which must be removed before operating the oven. Once removed, plug in the unit. The oven will sound twice and the LCD screen will illuminate.

Care and Use
Rack Height Positions
Cooking results are significantly affected by the position of the Wire Rack as this determines how close the food is to the heating elements. We highly recommend following the rack height position for each function as printed on the right hand side of the oven door’s glass window.
However, these are a guide only. Certain foods may require a different rack height position depending on the recipe, the amount and size of the food and your personal taste.
|Top rack height position||BROIL function.|
|Middle rack height position||TOAST, BAGEL, PIZZA and COOKIE functions.|
|Bottom rack height position||BAKE, ROAST, and REHEAT functions.|
NOTE: When using metal foil to cover accessories, pans, and dishes, it is recommended that the Wire Rack be in the middle or bottom location.
For optimum cooking results:
- The Wire Rack should always be inserted into the rack height position with the spokes facing upward.
- Food should be positioned on the center of the Wire Rack, Broil Rack, Baking Tray, or the optional Pizza Pan to let maximum airflow reach the food.
For optimum results:
- Use oven-proof baking dishes, roasting pans, pizza pans or cookie sheets with very low sides, and place on the center of the Wire Rack to let maximum airflow reach the food.
- For the same reason, do not cover foods with metal foil or any other type of lid or covering for maximum airflow.
- Most recipes recommend reducing temperatures by 25°F when using convection cooking. Always check the food 10 minutes before the suggested cooking time is complete to avoid overcooking.
Temperature Conversion Button
The temperature reading on the oven is preset to Fahrenheit. Pressing the TEMPERATURE CONVERSION button allows the Fahrenheit temperature reading to be converted to Celsius. The corresponding ‘C°’ or ‘F°’ symbol is displayed on the LCD screen.
The TEMPERATURE CONVERSION button may be selected when using the BAKE, ROAST, BROIL, PIZZA, COOKIE, REHEAT and WARM functions.
NOTE: The TEMPERATURE CONVERSION button can be used as an electronic temperature conversion tool, particularly convenient for international recipes.
NOTE: If you have changed the default Fahrenheit temperature reading to Celsius, the setting will remain in the memory of the oven until the TEMPERATURE CONVERSION button is pressed a second time or the oven is unplugged from the wall outlet. When the oven is plugged back into the wall outlet, the temperature reading will automatically return to the preset Fahrenheit setting.
The FROZEN FOODS button adds the recommended additional time required to defrost and then toast frozen bread or bagels and cook frozen pizza or cookie dough.
The FROZEN FOODS button can be selected before or during the cooking cycle and is selectable on the Toast, Bagel and Cookie functions and is the default setting for the Pizza Function. When cooking fresh pizzas, deselect the Frozen Food button before the cycle begins.
When the oven is plugged into a wall outlet and turned ON, the oven alert will sound twice and the LCD screen will illuminate for 10 minutes before entering standby mode. When in standby mode, the LCD screen will cease to illuminate, however, all function options will still be visible.
To reactivate the oven from standby mode, press the START/CANCEL button on the control panel, or turn any dial. The LCD screen will re-illuminate. Press the START/CANCEL button to activate the oven.
The oven is ON (cooking) when the oven alert sounds and the button surround is illuminated red, and is OFF when the START/CANCEL button is pressed a second time and the button surround illumination goes out.
Plate Warming Tray
The top of the oven is very hot during and after operation. Do not store any item on top of the oven when in operation.
The only exceptions are:
One layer of ceramic plates for warming or The optional Bamboo Cutting Board and Serving Tray accessory.
THE USE OF ANY ACCESSORY ATTACHMENTS NOT RECOMMENDED BY BREVILLE MAY CAUSE INJURIES. THE OUTER SURFACE OF THE OVEN, INCLUDING THE OVEN DOOR, IS HOT DURING AND AFTER OPERATION. ALWAYS USE PROTECTIVE HOT PADS OR INSULATED OVEN MITTS WHEN INSERTING, REMOVING OR HANDLING ITEMS FROM THE OVEN. ALTERNATIVELY, ALLOW THE OVEN TO COOL DOWN BEFORE HANDLING.
Your Breville Compact Smart Oven® is made of the highest quality materials and was carefully designed and engineered to let you enjoy your baked goods for years to come.
However, as with any machine, it needs your care in order to operate as it is intended to. Please follow our care tips below.
NOTE: Do not use abrasive cleansers, metal scouring pads, or metal utensils on any of the interior or exterior surfaces of the oven, including the Crumb Tray. Do not use abrasive cleansers, metal scouring pads, or metal utensils to clean any of the accessories as they may damage the porcelain enamel finish of the Baking Pan and Broil Rack.
Cleaning the interior
The walls on the inside of the oven feature a nonstick coating for easy cleaning. To clean any spattering that may occur while cooking, wipe the walls with a soft, damp sponge. A non-abrasive liquid cleanser or mild spray solution may be used to avoid buildup of stains. Apply the cleanser to the sponge, not the oven surface, before cleaning. Avoid touching the quartz heating elements.
USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN CLEANING THE QUARTZ HEATING ELEMENTS. ALLOW THE OVEN TO COOL COMPLETELY, THEN GENTLY RUB A SOFT, DAMP SPONGE OR CLOTH ALONG THE LENGTH OF THE HEATING ELEMENT. DO NOT USE ANY TYPE OF CLEANSER OR CLEANING AGENT.
Let all surfaces dry thoroughly prior to inserting the power plug into a wall outlet and turning the oven ON.
Cleaning the outer body and door
Wipe the outer body with a soft, damp sponge. A non-abrasive liquid cleanser or mild spray solution may be used to avoid buildup of stains. Apply the cleanser to the sponge, not the oven surface, before cleaning.
To clean the glass door, use a glass cleaner or mild detergent and a soft, damp sponge or soft plastic scouring pad. Do not use an abrasive cleanser or metal scouring pad as these will scratch the oven surface.
Let all surfaces dry thoroughly prior to inserting the power plug into a wall outlet and turning the oven ON.
Cleaning the Crumb Tray
After each use, slide out the Crumb Tray and discard crumbs. Wipe the Tray with a soft, damp sponge. A non-abrasive liquid cleanser may be used to avoid buildup of stains. Apply the cleanser to the sponge, not the tray, before cleaning. Dry thoroughly.
To remove baked-on grease, soak the Crumb Tray in warm soapy water, then wash with a soft sponge or soft plastic scouring pad. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Always ensure that you reinsert the Crumb Tray into the oven after cleaning and prior to inserting the power plug into a wall outlet and turning the oven ON.
Cleaning the Wire Rack, Broil Rack, and Baking Pan
Wash all accessories in warm soapy water with a soft sponge or soft plastic scouring pad. For stubborn, baked-on grease, soak in warm soapy water then wipe with a soft sponge. Rinse and dry thoroughly. The Wire Rack, Broil Rack, and Baking Pan are also dishwasher-safe.
Unplugging your oven after every use.
As standard practice, we would recommend unplugging all appliances when not in use as they continue to draw current when they are plugged in.
The BAGEL function crisps the insides of your cut bagel while only lightly toasting the outside. This function is also ideal for toasting crumpets or thick sliced specialty breads, which require one side to be toasted more than the other.
NOTE: If you like your bagel halves equally crisp on both the top and bottom, we recommend using the TOAST function to toast your cut bagel.
The TOAST function browns and crisps the outside of your bread while keeping the inside soft and moist. This function is also ideal for English muffins and frozen waffles.
The REHEAT function is ideal for reheating leftovers without browning.
The BAKE function cooks food evenly throughout. This function is ideal for baking cakes, muffins, brownies, and pastries. The BAKE function is also ideal for cooking prepackaged frozen meals including lasagna and pot pies.
NOTE: The following bake-ware will fit into the oven:
- 7 1/2″ X 11″ Baking pan with no handles
- 9″ square baking pan
- 6 cup muffin pan
- Up to 11″ pie plate
- 9″ loaf pan
The BROIL function is ideal for open sandwiches, small cuts of meat, poultry, fish, sausages, and vegetables. Broiling can also be used to brown the tops of casseroles and gratins.
Broiling Time Table
Breast or Thigh
|1 lb (500g)
0.5 lbs (250g)
|Fish||0.5 lbs (250g)
1 lb (500g)
|Cheese Melt||3-5 mins|
The COOKIE function is ideal for baking homemade or commercially prepared cookies and other baked treats. This function is ideal for baking ready-to-bake crescent rolls, cinnamon rolls, biscuits, and strudels.
NOTE: It may be necessary to lightly grease or line the enamel Baking Pan with baking paper to prevent cookies from sticking.
The PIZZA function melts and browns cheese and toppings while crisping the pizza crust.
Note on pizza stones
When using a pizza stone, it is necessary to first heat the stone (without a pizza) for optimum results.
The ROAST function is ideal for cooking a variety of meats and poultry that are tender and juicy on the inside and roasted to perfection on the outside.
Roasting Time Table
NOTE: We recommend limiting the weight of meats and poultry to be roasted to 4.5 lbs (2kg). However, the actual maximum weight will vary depending on the type, cut, shape, and size of the meat.
|Type||Cut||Roasting time per 1 lb (500g)|
|Beef||Rib Eye, Round, or Rib Roast||30 minutes|
|Pork||Loin (bone in/out)||35 minutes|
|Lamb||Leg (bone in/out)||30 minutes|
NOTE: When roasting, the Breville enamel Broil Rack may be inserted into Breville enamel baking pan. When assembled together, the Broil Rack is designed to drain grease and fats away from meats for healthier cooking. The Baking Pan collects these pan drippings and helps prevent spattering.
NOTE: Caution should be exercised when using pans and dishes constructed of materials other than metal. If using ceramic or glass pans or dishes it is important that they are oven-safe to prevent cracking. For questions regarding the use of oven safe and specialty bakeware in compact ovens, please contact the bakeware manufacturer directly.
NOTE: Caution should be exercised when using metal foil to cover accessories, pans, and dishes. Be sure that the metal foil is fitted securely as close contact with the oven’s heating elements can cause overheating and risk of fire. When using metal foil to cover accessories, pans, and dishes, it is recommended that the Wire Rack be in the middle or bottom location.
NOTE: Caution should be exercised when using lids in the oven, as pressure buildup in a covered pan or dish may cause hot ingredients to expel or the dish to crack.
