Great toaster with a multitude of settings and a stylish look. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and have had no problems. My favorite feature so far is the super easy to remove crumb tray which keeps me from filling my house with smoke from burnt odds and ends.

This is a beautiful piece of failed technology. This Australian company, Breville, needs to learn a few lessons about customer service. From the day it arrived, quickly, (yay Zappos!) the toaster oven didn't work at all; we got a service call indicator on the LED display (E01, go figure...) and we were advised via the service manual to call the 800# for assistance. The wait time each time I called was 26, 48, and 56 minutes respectively! Forget it! Then I googled the toaster oven and found an assortment of irate and disgusted customers who bought the same attractive but useless toaster oven. it's back to the no-frills Black and Decker for me.

I am impressed. This is a replacement for a KitchenAide that died on its second use. It is clearly well made, and well designed. The controls are easily managed (important to folks like me with disabilities) and require little force. It bakes and broils well.

This is the absolute best! Having had just simple Toaster Ovens I now understand why spending a few dollars more and understanding the power of the product it is worth it.

Just had this for a month and it works great, I went through 2 (other brands of) toaster ovens before, and this is by far the best. I like the compact size and the very simple design. The toaster part of it tends to brown the bottom a bit more, but overall I'm very happy with this!

Excellent toast...and everything else. Purchased a month ago and a bit wary of the price -- however, is solid, well made and worth every penny.

It's expensive but should last - very sensibly designed and solidly made. Wish I'd bought one years ago...all the small details add up to a great machine.

Great product - I love this oven! I decided to purchase the Breville Smart Oven to replace our expensive Dualit toaster after it died. I settled on this toaster oven after reading reviews and comparing it's features to other toaster ovens. I liked the styling, quality, and the fact that the rack is adjustable, which isn't usually the case in most toaster ovens. After ordering from Zappos I received the oven super quickly. Zappos service is the best!

We are very happy with this product. This is it. This is the one. We have tried many others but this Smart Oven does just what it says. We can bake, broil, toast anything better than a real oven and it does it perfectly The bamboo tray is a great visual addition and also functional. The Smart Oven is not cheap but it is worth every penny to us.

The oven is great -- love it -- but when you get it be sure to peel the plastic cover off the function screen! Didn't know there even was a shield on the screen until someone at Breville set us straight. All's well that ends well.

This oven looks good and heats well. However, the controls are not that great. There are some counter intuitive controls (never really start the timer) and the light stays on when it is done (which just takes a while to get used to). The worst thing is that 2 weeks after owning the start button seems to have problems (not recognizing taps and other random behavior). I guess I got a lemon (but at this price they should not sell lemons).

Toaster oven is very well made. Would have liked to buy the newest model but it was a bit pricey. But the quality is so much superior to all the lesser brands I looked at. Very happy with it so far.

Without a doubt this is the best toaster oven on the market and the only one I've ever owned that toasted bread perfectly. It gets 5 stars from me!

First of 5 stars to zappos. Customer service and shipping is great as always. Second, I do not use microwave and have been looking for a good small oven. I have had some other counter-top ovens and this one beats them all by far. It's easy to use, heats up very fast and i like the display. Great product from Breville. So far had a chance to cook the following: hash-browns, veggies, salmon, asparagus, toast bread, warm up different foods. It's great for everything.

My husband talked me into this oven. I didn't want it - thought it was too big and a little pricey. But boy have I been won over. This is not only a great toaster, but a little powerhouse of an oven. I use it so much more than I ever expected to and it cooks just as well and as consistently as my regular oven. Thumbs up.

Superb Toaster Oven! Perfect for me! Best thing was Zappos fast free shipping with the promise I could ship it back for free if I didn't like it. A no-risk purchase. But I love it! Bakes, broils, toasts to perfection.

Love this toaster! Well built and worth the money. Debated buying it for a while as it seemed very expensive for a toaster but glad I did. Toasts perfectly and without taking too much time. Door works great and knobs/settings easy to use.
