Cookies in the Breville Smart Oven Air

Today I decided to try baking cookies in the new Breville oven.

Delicious! I am so happy with this oven!

After mixing up my dough, I decided caution was in order, and did a test bake with one cookie, using the included pizza pan, and the default cookie settings of 325 degrees, convection, for 11 minutes.

I wasn’t too happy with the result. The cookie wasn’t brown enough on top, and too brown on the bottom. I changed the temperature to 350 degrees, convection, which is what I bake them at in my regular oven, AND I put one of the oven racks on the bottom, with a cookie sheet on it to diffuse the heat from the bottom elements.

I cooked them an extra minute as well, so 12 minutes total, and they were perfect! I was able to fit nine cookies on the included pizza pan, no rotating was needed.

  1. Cookies look good! I’m making Newman Marcus cookies tomorrow for our first visitors (because of this VIRUS thing!!!!) since Christmas. Our daughter and son-in-law are helping granddaughter move into college dorm in Chanute KS, then spending a few days with us. Love reading about your oven. I have an Oster counter top oven that I’ve used several years. Bakes good Mexican cornbread when we have beans. I love it most in the winter as I have a large walk in pantry and keep it on the counter in there. On chilly mornings, I stand in front of it to get warm while the home made English muffins toast!! 😃

      A Butler’s pantry has been a dream of mine forever Gwynette, OH how I’d love that! I’ve had two Breville convection/toaster ovens in the past, and loved them, but this one is just large enough to hold all my standard bakeware, and that, along with the bottom heating element, convinced me to try it. SO glad I did!

    I use my counter top oven for so many things. Saves using the propane and keeps the kitchen cooler in summer. I’m going to check out the Breville oven and keep it in mind for when my oven eventually fails and it will!

      I have a NuWave that we use nonstop… it holds a lot and is far easier to clean, so I use it for messy stuff like meat.
