Breville Combi-Wave 3-in-1 Microwave Aifryer Review

Feb 20, 2022


  • Soft-close door
  • Very nice LED screen
  • Sleek design
  • Decent microwave ability


  • Dealbreaker: must preheat using microwave-mode, prior to using air fryer mode, for 3 mins! If you accidentally open the microwave during preheating, it restarts for another 3 mins — it’s not temperature-based.
  • The dials are a bit annoying to use when scrolling up/down large time amounts. This is apparent when selecting combi-wave mode which defaults to 30 mins.
  • Airfryer is relatively weak unless you use it on the crisper stand. This is annoying in comparison to regular basket air fryers.
  • No mesh plate, just a grill plate, Brussel sprouts fall through.
