I read other reviews before purchasing this toaster as I am so tired of buying bad ones. We love this toaster! Bread toasts evenly as does frozen items. Love the sophisticated 'push-of-a-button' technology. I highly recommend this toaster.

I bought this toaster about 5 months ago for my wife (don't judge me, she asked for a toaster). It looks fantastic, and the toast comes out...toasted. A week ago though the lights on the left side of the toaster started randomly blinking, and that side is no longer functional. I have emailed Breville costumer support, and await their reply. I am currently giving it two stars because when I buy an expensive kitchen appliance I expect it to work for years without having to ever use the warranty.

This toaster is simply amazing. I have come to conclude that when you buy Breville, you buy quality and I'm happy to spend the extra money to get it! The other feature this toaster has that other reviewers have not touched upon yet is the defrost button. This is especially nice for people who keep bagels, breads, etc. in the freezer and want to only take out a slice or two at a time. (Especially nice for singles or couples) This toaster does a remarkable job when you put a slice of frozen bakery bread or a frozen bagel in the slot and press "defrost" and then "toast." It delivers you a perfect - and I mean perfect - slice of toasted bread. I've been buying wonderful bakery breads and slicing into thick slices when I get home from store and freezing it just because this great toaster makes it possible for me to buy the loaf without wasting most of it from going stale in a day. The toasted slices come out perfectly crisp on the outside and deliciously chewy, hot and flavorful on the inside. I would highly recommend this toaster and would buy again in a heartbeat!

We purchased the toaster because of the excellent performance of our Breville Smart Oven. The Die-Cast 4-Slice Smart Toaster does not achieve the same level of satisfaction. The toaster only toasts on one side of your bagel, toast, or English muffin. That is not widely published and may disappoint many buyers. It takes some getting use to. The toaster should be set at level four to begin and you'll be close to your desired browning level. Frankly there are many less costly toasters that will toast the bread, simply without the bells and whistles.

I received a two slice Breville toaster about 9 mos ago as a gift and it worked well for the first few mos. but now it's coils in several places did not glow consistently so the toast is often very light on one side and the other browned well. I've tried blowing on the faint coils and that did help some but not always. Any other suggestions?

First class sums it all up. This toaster is worth every cent plus it has a sleek and smart look to it. I am very happy with my decision to spend a little extra and purchase the very best.

Spending this kind of money on a toaster, our expectations were expectedly high. I'm happy to say the Breville Die-Cast delivered on those expectations and then some. The motorized action and even browning combined with the unique "quick look" and "a bit more" features make this the best performing toaster we've ever owned. It makes our old Cuisinart look like a cheap toaster by comparison. As an added bonus, it just plain looks good sitting on the counter. A must have for kitchen techies.
