This is the most satisfactory small appliance I have ever owned. Sweeter still, was purchasing it from Zappo's, with no shipping charges. I couldn't be happier. This is well worth the higher cost from the rest of the toaster ovens.

Brands I'd also recommend: Haven't found any comparable.

Love this oven! Large enough to use as second oven. Love the way the rack pulls out when you open the door so you do not burn yourself. Worth the money. Love Zappos!

This is a fantastic toaster oven! It's large enough to roast a chicken or a pork loin or roast, but it also makes perfect toast and bagels. I've even baked bread in here. It heats up fast and cooks fast. It'll even fit pans with short handles, like a 10" Lodge cast-iron skillet. The buttons do feel a little cheap, and it does put off a significant amount of heat off the top (some see this as a feature, for warming plates), but for the expressed function of cooking food, you'd be hard pressed to find a better toaster oven.

Fabulous toaster oven! Large enough to act as a second oven. Even cooking. Love the way the rack pulls out when you open the door and so you do not burn yourself getting the toast out of the oven. Very pleased! And Zappos is the best!

Great little oven. We are a family of two so this is about all the oven we need 90% of the time. The programmed settings are very handy and easy to operate. Also looks nice as we have been upgrading our kitchen.

No more microwaves for us! Ours broke and we replaced it with this oven. We love it! We've had it for about three weeks now and have used it most days for toasting, broiling, warming or baking. Can't think of one negative thing to say! It works well and is really nice looking.

I love my Smart Oven ! I use it all the time and have no complaints. I had two others of a different brand and didn't like them at all. The Smart Oven is great.

I had been considering something like this for a while and when I read a review of the Breville Smart Oven in Consumer Report I knew it was the one I wanted. This oven can do everything! It bakes, roasts, toasts and is also a convection oven. It is easy to use, cleans up nicely and is easy to store. The fact that I could purchase from Zappos was an added bonus! It arrived in two days and I have been using it almost non-stop. If you are looking for something that you can use instead of your big oven, I would recommend this model. Breville does make another model without the convection but I like that option.

I bought this Breville convection/toaster oven a little over a year ago. It is worth the extra price, because it is high quality and not chintzy like my previous toaster oven. I like it so much that I cook most of my oven meals in it, since it holds a true temperature and is perfect for making a meal for two (or one). And is much more energy efficient than my regular oven. In fact, I like this so much that I sent one to my son for his birthday. I hope he likes it as much as I do.

Without any doubt, this is the best counter top oven available on the market. I have been using small ovens for decades now, and I am an avid cook. It is easier to clean, functions better,and uses less energy than my large oven. This price is exceptional and Zappos customer service is unsurpassed.

I love this oven. It is counter top height, so it will fit under upper cabinets. It heats evenly and is perfect for heating pizza and other frozen foods or making a quick snack when your oven would be too much for the task. The crumb tray also helps this oven stay looking new. Great workhorse; great money and time saver.

Love the ease of use and the many well thought out pre-programmed but fully flexible settings. Truly smart in adjusting time for preheating or sensing if it already is hot. Toasts, bakes and reheats very effectively. Great to see through the window as a cake rises or toast browns. Looks good, too. Exceeding my expectations.

I've had this oven for just over a month now and I like it very much. I did lots of research and read lots of reviews before plunking down this much for a toaster oven, but, I must say, it was worth it. I've hardly turned my stove's oven on since I've had this item. I use it every day for various things -- toast, pizza, roasting, baking, broiling and it has handled everything beautifully. I would definitely recommend it. Also must mention that Zappos is incredible. I ordered this item Christmas night and received it the next day -- how do they do that?

Great product and well made and very dependable temperature controls. This is the only toaster oven that is actually large enough to bake a four portion meal and a two person pizza. Breville makes well engineered quality stuff.

Brands I'd also recommend: Staub, Mauvielle and All Clad

Best counter top oven ever. Did a lot of research and this one always came out on top. Easy to clean, looks attractive (or as much as a counter top appliance can be attractive), heats evenly and stays that way. Not just a "toaster oven"...a full appliance in itself. Great for those days you want to cook something too small for a big oven.

Have had my Smart Oven for about two months and love it. My son's schedule is such that he cooks most of his own meals and he uses this oven exclusively. Takes a few times to find which toast setting is preferred because of the number of choices, but am pleased with the results.

I really love my new smart oven. When you toast bread it toasts one side like grill marks and the other side like regular toast. The toast comes out really nice and when you open the door to remove it the rack come out halfway so you can easily remove the toast without getting burned. I also love the warming function. I use it at 160 degrees to keep plates warm or 170 degrees for food. It saves the last setting that you set when you use it again. All functions work great.

I love this toaster oven. I have only turned my real oven on twice this summer since I got this Breville. It does everything great except broiling steaks; I think it can't get quite hot enough for that. It doesn't heat up the whole kitchen and is fairly quiet and easy to use. Highly recommended!

Due to the price, we hesitated to buy this oven to replace our Krups FBC2, which after six years the buttons started to stick. The Krups works on the same "smart" principle with infra-red heating elements, has convection, and the same foot print on the counter. However, the Breville has a larger interior and cooks and bakes more evenly...and the presets are completely adjustable to one's liking and they actually work. This thing, compared to all other toaster ovens on the market is expensive...but is the best one out there bar none...worth every penny.

A 3-1/2 pound chicken roasted last night came out crispy skinned but moist inside. (350 degrees in convection mode). The oven preheats much faster than my larger electric oven. This is a really great oven which I plan to use regularly. (And Zappos delivered the next day!)
