Breville BOV845BSS Smart Oven Pro is equipped with interior light so you can clearly see the food being cooked.
Walls inside the oven have non-stick coating which makes them easier to clean.
As with many convection ovens the exterior does get hot, particularly the top side. Keep in mind that instructions clearly state you need to keep a minimum distance of 4 inches (10cm) of space on both sides of the oven and 6 inches (15cm) on top. These are the minimum distances so more wouldn’t hurt for even better air circulation.
