If you are looking for Breville BOV800XL accessories, you are in luck! Of all the toaster ovens that I have reviewed, the BOV800XL model is the one that has the most accessories made specifically for it by the manufacturer.
The BOV800XL is Breville’s top of the line smart oven. Breville clearly believes in this product because they have created several accessories that are meant to help you get the most from this machine.
I’m going to be honest with you. Not every Breville accessory is made with the same standard of quality as their toaster ovens. Therefore, I am also including third party accessories that will fit in the BOV800XL toaster oven, all of which I own and use in my BOV800XL.
Bamboo Cutting Board
The Breville bamboo cutting board is one of the most popular accessories for the BOV800XL toaster oven. It is made to sit on the top of the oven when not in use, which also gives it a second role. If you want, you can place the cutting board on top of the toaster oven, then place pretty much anything you want on top of the cutting board.
The board is thick and has rubber feet on the bottom that it will prevent the top of the board from getting hot. This means that you can either use the cutting board as a cutting board, or as an insulated exterior cover so you can set items on top of the toaster oven, decorative or otherwise. You can even use this board to store the pizza pan and broiling rack on top of so that these items won’t scratch the exterior of the machine.
I do not own this accessory so have no personal opinion of it. What I can tell you is that the reviews are overwhelmingly positive for the cutting board. One person went so far as to say that this is pretty much an essential accessory.
Breville includes a baking pan but it is of very poor quality. The nonstick stops being nonstick after just a few uses, and it is very easily scratched. I got rid of the Breville baking pan and bought a different one.
When I looked for a replacement baking pan, I didn’t want one with a nonstick coating because I didn’t want to worry about scratching the surface. I also didn’t want it to be made of aluminum. That limited me to steel or porcelain coated pans.
The pan that I bought is made by Granite Ware and has a porcelain coating. The pan measures 8″ x 11″, which is a bit smaller than I would like it to be, but it works beautifully. The dark surface absorbs heat so it heats up quickly.I bake all kinds of things on my Granite Ware baking pan, from frozen biscuits to leftovers to frozen chicken wings. This baking pan gets used almost daily.
My favorite aspect of Granite Ware products is that you can safely cut food on them. I don’t ever have to worry about scratching the surface, and they are also very easy to clean.
Breville includes a nonstick broiler pan and rack with the BOV800XL, but I hate it. The nonstick surface starts sticking after just a few uses, and it flakes off. I got rid of the one made by Breville and bought a stainless steel broiler pan made by Nopro.
The perforated top for the broiler pan that I use looks very odd, but it works well. However, I use the wire rack from the roaster that I have (and is listed below) as the broiler portion of this pan. I’ll share a picture of what I do below when I discuss the roaster.
The material is stainless steel so you don’t have to worry about scratching the surface like you do with nonstick surfaces. I use the pan portion of this broiler for cooking things that can be messy, like BBQ chicken wings, and use it as a broiler for things like chicken and steak.
Breville made a pizza crisper, which looks a lot like a pizza pan except that the bottom is full of holes. The holes allow air to flow over both the top and bottom of a pizza, and the result is a wonderfully crisp crust.
The crisper is coated with nonstick material and will cook up to a 13″ pizza. Unlike the pizza pan that comes with the BOV800XL, this is a highly rated item. I do not own the pizza crisper, but am seriously considering getting one. I truly wish Breville included this with their toaster oven, instead of the pizza pan.
You can use this crisper for more than just pizza. I found that people use it to cook french fries, garlic toast, and to reheat leftovers. Basically, you can use this any time you want to heat or cook something that should be crispy. Just remember that you shouldn’t cut your pizza on the crisper or you will damage the nonstick coating.
You can cook pizza that measures up to 13″ in this machine, so it only makes sense that Breville created a pizza pan that fits perfectly inside. The problem is, the pan they made is junk. I own the Breville BOV800XL smart oven and agree with all the negative reviews about Breville’s nonstick pizza pan.
I got rid of Breville’s pizza pan and replaced it with a stainless steel one made by Maxam that I love! Perhaps the best part about this pan is that I can leave the cooked pizza on the pan to cut and not worry about damaging it.
You can cook more than just pizza on this pan. I’ve used mine for a variety of foods, from chicken wings to biscuits to leftovers. I’ve even made pancakes in my Breville BOV800XL on this pizza pan!
Here’s a little tip: You can store this pan underneath the BOV800XL, which is where I keep mine.
I haven’t used a pizza stone in my Breville, but I found that people who own this stone love it. People use it to cook pizzas up to 13″ as well as artisan and pita breads.
Using a pizza stone is a bit different than a pizza pan. Unlike a pan, you should not wash a stone. The dirtier it gets, the better it will work. You will want to clean the cheese and other drippings from the surface of the stone, but do not use soap or attempt to wash off the food that is embedded in the stone. Grease will build up within the pores of the stone over time and improve the way the stone bakes pizza and bread.
The roaster is my favorite of all my Breville BOV800XL accessories. The roaster that I own is made by Granite Ware and includes a pan, cover, and wire rack. The roaster is large enough to hold an entire chicken as well as vegetables. And, yes, it fits perfectly inside the BOV800XL toaster oven when the lid is on.
The chicken that I make in this roaster is the best chicken I’ve ever made! The secret is to add 1-2 cups of water or broth to the bottom of the roaster and cook the chicken with the lid on. The result is chicken that is incredibly moist and delicious!
I use my roaster to make chicken soup in my toaster. If you are curious about how I do this, you can read How I Make Chicken Soup in a Toaster Oven.
Combining the Roaster and Broiler Pan
Earlier I said that I combine the wire rack from the roaster with my broiler pan. It just so happens that the roaster rack fits perfectly on the top of the broiler pan, and it is easier to clean than the one that comes with the pan.
Here is how the broiler pan looks with the rack that it came with:
And here is how the broiler pan looks with the wire rack from the Granite Ware roaster – you can see how the lip around the edge holds the rack in place perfectly:
