Great oven! Great experience with Overstock. My first purchase and I made a mistake - they went above and beyond and followed up on the fix. Very, very impressed with customer service! Oven arrived in 3 days, hard to explain how great it is (and the quality feel, which is why we chose this over the Breville). We have all KitchenAid appliances, major and small, and love them and their performance but we were really on the fence between this and the Breville. Let's face it, this is a lot of money for a countertop oven and I wanted to be sure it was worth it. In my opinion, it is. We plan to use this much more than our wall ovens. The first time I used the convection feature I thought it was broken (like our old Krups did...just after the warranty expired), but it's just that quiet! We have a convection wall oven and a convection microwave that are loud by comparison. Very even cooking, toasting, broiling! Love all the settings and they seem to really work! Made a couple of splattery meals in it already and was worried about it getting dirty (I'm a freak about new things looking brand new for a long time), but the walls and elements seem to almost magically make soils disappear - didn't even have to wipe down. The crumb tray removes and its nonstick coating (similar to the walls) wipes clean sooo easily! Pleasant surprise was that the interior was a little bigger than I was expecting. Such a great replacement for our Krups convection countertop oven that never lived up to expectations! Tip: lift up slightly in the oven and you can store the included pan and broiling rack discreetly on the countertop underneath ; )
We upgraded from a *** pod machine to the Breville. Before purchasing the Breville we researched several other machines, and are very happy with our decision. It is easy to use and works great! If this is your first espresso machine, for optimum performance, invest in a good quality grinder as well. We went with a Breville grinder. In this regard, I would stay away from the the Breville combo espresso/grinder. Although you'll be taking up less counter space, you'll pay extra for the 2 in 1 convenience, and double your trouble if something breaks on down the line. In terms of performance, the Breville makes a great cup of espresso and the milk steamer creates a wonderful layer of froth. We highly recommend! As an aside, Overstock had the best price - free shipping, no sales tax, and with a 12% off coupon, still over ***less than other sellers.
It doesn’t get any better than the Breville. Cooks like and oven should and toasts perfectly too. The added interior light to this model is a great improvement. High quality and worth every penny. Overstock’s was the lowest price I found.
There is no better smart oven. This is my second breville purchase- the first one is still good as new after years of use but I just wanted to upgrade to the newer model with the light while cooking. Very user friendly. (i.e. reading the manual is optional)
