It's an oven I could get on board with. I just wonder about the supplied TWO (2) oven racks which I don't see in use in the video. Steam would be nice though. But the 5qt dutch oven for bread :x

 

Watch the video again.  You'll see both racks in use, although not at the same time.  Looking at the setup, however, it seems that under some circumstance both racks can be used together.

Steam is Beyond Nice

 

Its de rigueur.

 

you folks do have a conventional oven , no ?

I do have a conventional oven. A very satisfactory one but bending and lifting a 5 quart enamelled, cast iron Dutch oven from oven height to counter height is no longer as feasible as it once was. The Breville is at counter height so presents much less of a challenge. Old age is not for sissies as they say. :D:D

I agree.  but as these counter top ovens get bigger and bigger    you want to put your money where steam is an option

 

of course  , a small apt , a dorm room etc etc 

 

Steam would fit in there too .   no problemo

Has anyone here played around with trying to fool the Breville Smart Oven into keeping its elements on full blast (without cycling) for toast?

No, but if you can hack it this way, let me know.  The big one sucks at toast.
