This was well worth the extra cash. I toast, bake and broil so many things in this oven! Not sure how I did without it! Oh wait, yes I do, I wasted energy heating up my large oven for all those little things. All of the controls are lit up, very precise and yet very easy to use. It cooks evenly and accurately. Don't hesitate, buy it!
I have wanted a toaster oven for years! Based on consumer report magazine, I checked Overstock.com and found the Breville. I only gave 4 stars as I haven't done anything but toast in it but am looking forward to really giving it a workout soon. The instruction manual is easy to follow plus it lists recipes I've never tried before but I certainly will! I definitely recommend this toaster oven to anyone!
We've had this oven about a month now and it is just what we were looking for. It seemed a waste to heat a big oven for 2 potatoes or a small cake pan. This is just the right size. I have toasted bagels and bread in it, warmed rolls, baked artisan bread, done casseroles, baked frozen pizza, and cookies. It takes a little adjustment for times, heat etc but nothing rocket science. The biggest down side is the cost compared to other toaster ovens, but it does the job and is well made. We like it and expect it to serve us many years.
Have had the oven less than a month. Toast is great. Dinner Rolls for holiday were fair. Rolls closest to the door cooked faster but unevenly. Sort of disappointed with performance. Frozen dinner and pizza were great. Jury is out until I try a roast/chicken. Hoping it will be as good as other reviewer experiences. Plan to use it a lot (for a family of one), The instructions are very straight forward and the function, temperature and time settings are very user friendly. The unit is larger than I expected but is acceptable. Bought the cutting board for the top so I could use it to set things on without causing issues with overheating. Plan to use the plate warming feature at times.
Now this is a quality project well worth the money. I have 2 kids in their early 20's and they have friends. and when its video game time that poor oven never gets a break. We've had it about 4 years now and its still going strong.
We shopped around a lot. We found this had high ratings. Once we received it and started using it we soon found out why. Just out of the box we were impressed. The quality was obvious. The controls are state-of-the-art. It is easy to set the functions. It toasts so evenly it's like it was done in a science lab. The convection feature is great! We have replaced using our full sized oven almost completely. (We got a 13" pizza stone from ***** that fits perfectly.) Overstocks had the best price and we found an online coupon code that made it even better. If you are in the market for this type of unit- my wife and I recommend this Breville. If you by the Breville, we recommend you buy it here.
Got it two weeks ago. Finally... a toaster over that makes great toast. We've baked and broiled in it too with wonderful results. It looks nice, is well made, is easy to operate and works just the way you would want it to. What more could you want?
