Breville BMO870BSS oven

In my Breville BMO870BSS Review (preview, actually) I will lay out what I have found abount the new Breville oven – The Combi Wave™ 3 in 1.

The Breville BMO870BSS combines 3 oven types in one appliance – air fryer, convection oven and microwave.

The brushed stainless steel oven features tried and tested  Element iQ system that provides power where and when it is needed for perfect results.

Breville Combi Wave 3 in 1 Features

Five Cooking Modes

The oven offers multiple cooking modes:

  • Convection oven
  • Microwave oven
  • Airfry
  • Fast Combi – cooks by combining convection oven, grill and microwave functions to get the results as fast as possible
  • From Frozen – cooks perfect meal from frozen ingredients
  • Food Menu – select the food from the list (see image below), and your Breville oven will do the rest

19 Presets

The Breville BMO870 has 19 smart presets built in. Some of the presets are Smart Cook, Smart Reheat and Smart Defrost.

If you have read my guides about cooking frozen pizza in toaster oven and reheating cinnamon rolls, you know it is possible if you know how to do it. The smart mode presets makes your job so much easier.

Quite Operation

The oven beeps less and works quiter. It also features soft close door that is 8-% quieter than the previous model BMO735.

Shortcuts

When you open the door, you can access a number of shortcuts to commonly used tasks like popping popcorn, softening butter, melting chocolate, and more.
