Worked well and the food was cooked well in this oven. I loved the oven but it was replaced after the initial shipment with a replacement on August 2014 due to heating issues. Now it is less than 2 years and the oven is not heating and making a rattling noise. For $249 this is a great disappointment. I have had previous oven that last greater than 6 year. Cost does not equal quallity. Huge disappointment.
Saw this reviewed on America Test Kitchen. This is one marvelous kitchen appliance going way beyond toast!. Gentle convection even allows nice looking cakes and cupcakes. Perfect for a 12" pizza and roasts a little fat hen nicely without heating up your whole kitchen.
It's got lots of room inside for baking and toasting. It has a lot of selections that help give you exactly what you want and need. Looks great, but it's large so make sure it will fit on your countertop. Breville has the best products and that's all we buy now.
We wanted something that would match our existing kitchen appliances and this met the requirement although a bit pricey. However you get what you pay for. It's easy to operate, sturdy and full featured with a very nice design. I recommend it highly.
This is far more than a toaster oven. I actually do most of my cooking for just myself or myself and one other person in this oven, which keeps me from having to heat up my much larger regular oven. Most frozen pizzas will fit in here. It will hold a 9x13 casserole. When I'm cooking for a much larger party, it serves as a great second oven or warming drawer.
This toaster oven has exceeded my expectations. The controls are simple and easy to use. The instruction booklet is concise and provides all the information needed to operate the oven. The interior is large and the pans that come with it are good quality. Features like the convection option and frozen indicator make the oven very versatile. It cooked a pan of frozen biscuits to golden brown perfection, as well as a bruschetta that crisped the bottom and lightly browned on top. I would strongly recommend this toaster oven.
