Breville Joule Oven Pro review: Smart and sophisticated countertop cooking tool


Broil, Bake, Broil, Air Fry & Dehydrate with Guided Recipes

Content of the article

We approach every review of a small appliance from the same perspective: how it impacts counter space. Whether you live in a small town dwelling or a sprawling country castle, kitchen counter space is valuable real estate for prep, cooking and serving. So when it comes to reviewing small kitchen appliances, we don’t take it lightly.

The Joule Oven Air Fryer Pro earns its place in the kitchen if you’re looking for a machine that can broil, bake, broil, roast, air fry, slow cook, proof, dehydrate and more. (and frankly looks pretty good doing it).

In general, we like Breville products because they are top of the line in terms of quality, efficiency and appearance. Breville products are generally expensive, but they tend to stand the test of time.

About the Joule Oven Air Fryer Pro: The Joule oven looks like a large toaster oven. It’s bigger than your average toaster oven, but it also does so much more. You can use the device alone or you can operate it using the applicationwhich also has built-in recipes.

The app guides fancy recipes, like croissants, chocolate soufflé and fish tacos, step by step, and also controls the machine. But if you’re not an app person (I’m not), the machine is fully functional on its own. It has seven built-in settings: convection oven, air fryer, slow cooker, dehydrator and toaster, broiler and pizza oven.

Who should consider buying the Joule Oven Air Fryer Pro: It’s not a small, small device. It’s a commitment to counter space, yet it’s compact if/when it effectively replaces many kitchen utensils. I use it as a toaster, oven, air fryer and dehydrator so it earns its place.

You might also want to consider the appliance if you’re looking to have fun and fancy cooking, or want an elevated oven/toaster experience and appreciate Breville’s sleek design.

My favorite features: I like Breville’s reliable quality and modern look. The presets do exactly what they say they will do. I use it most often as a convection oven and toaster and always get even baking, baking and toasting. There are other products that can perform a similar function effectively, such as the Ninja Foodi 8-in-1 Digital Air Fry Oven ($229.99). The main differences from $400 are design, capacity, quality, and customer service. La Nina Foodi is also a fantastic product, but I know Breville products are built to last (based on family and friends who will only buy Breville products and my experience with the Barista Touch) and I love how it looks in my kitchen.

I tried cooking with the app, and it was fun and worked like a charm. The recipes are extremely interactive and enjoyable. I’m deeply not an app person, as I don’t want to be tethered to my phone every moment of my day, but it certainly does what it’s supposed to.

The features I like least: The app. It works well, but I like to use the Joule oven independently. It is the most realistic for my everyday life. I also wish the machine came in a smaller size. The appliance, which is about the size of a microwave, seems to be able to accommodate many mouths, which is great for families, pot meals or leftovers, but I’d appreciate an oven the size of a condo. Maybe Breville will make a mini.
