Very very disappointed died after less than 17 months of light useI bought this item in January 2015. Wanted something better than a discount store toaster oven. I travel a lot so it was only used on weekends to make toast and reheat stuff. Today I put in 4 pieces of toast and when I went to hit the bit more button the unit went dead. Thought perhaps the gfi outlet needed to reset. My husband tested the circuit and we plugged it back in, nothing. What disappointment to have it die after not even 17 months. I HAVE HAD BARGAIN STORE UNITS LAST A LOT LONGER . I thought I was buying a quality product that would give years of service. I would give zero stars if possible. 1problems with toaster1. There is no ding or any sound at anytime: functions that the manual says a ding will sound as the cooking progresses are silent. I consider this a serious impediment. I have had many toaster ovens and all have had an alarm, even the cheap ones. I had to purchase a kitchen timer to use when I cook anything, but it is not as effective . 2. Bread does not toast evenly even though I have tried all the adjustments available. 3. The functions around the chrome knob are almost impossible to see. I have decided to just leave it on the Bake feature all the time. 4. The wire rack is difficult to place properly without being uneven. Also it will fall out if it is pulled out a little too far. Should have a catch. 5. I called the customer's service two times, but was unable to get a response. and I have been unable to find an email contact address for them. 6. Since the time has expired, I have no way of returning this item, I will have to use it until I can afford to buy another toaster oven. I am presently looking for a suitable cheap one on Amazon. 1A very different reviewThis is my first Breville product of any kind. I don t have anything against the brand, it seems the vast majority of people who own them like them or even love them. And the few negatives I ve read never really explain in detail any fault of the product itself, it s usually something to do with user error or not choosing the right product for their needs. My only issue with the brand is that sometimes it costs far more than it should and I don t see enough of an advantage in it to pay that much more. This time though I could see a few advantages to this model which took it to the top as my first choice (after several weeks of extensive shopping and comparing numerous other toaster ovens).SIZETopping the list of why I chose this model is size. I have a wonderful Cuisinart TOB-100 which to me is the ideal size for a toaster oven. It s served me well for over five years and still works fine except, as happens, the heating elements are getting old and everything takes longer to cook. These days the popular trend is for manufacturers to be pushing extra-large toaster ovens as a replacement for a full size oven. I don t agree, my stove works better as an oven than any toaster can possibly do and between it and a microwave and an air fryer (not to mention hotpot, steamer, slow cooker and other small appliances) using a toaster oven is nothing but a compromise and not a good one at that. The Breville Mini is the right size to toast bread, bagels, English muffins and similar things and occasionally heat up a leftover single slice of pizza. I mean, really, who really gets one of these things to bake pizzas, especially tiny eleven-inch ones?CONVENIENCEWhen I want to toast a bagel or something I just want to be able to walk over to my appliance, put the thing in, and push one button. This model does that, it remembers my last setting and if I want to make a slight one-time adjustment I don t have to read a service manual and push and turn a bunch of knobs to do so. The button layout on this model in my opinion is far easier to use than the next model up, the Compact, which requires you to push and turn a knob and have to think about which mode it is in every time.SPEEDThe Breville line of toaster ovens use quartz tubes for heat. That is not my preferred choice. I ve had plenty of ones that use this technology and while it is definitely faster than the metal rod elements my Cuisinart uses the quartz tubes have several downsides. First off, in reality they are nothing more than a high power light bulb and like most bulbs the more powerful they are the more heat they give off. Being a glass tube they are fragile and delicate and like most bulbs they have a relatively short life then they burn out (they are replaceable if you re handy with such things). Metal heating element rods usually don t get quite as hot and they take a lot longer to heat up to temperature than quartz tubes which are instant on. But metal rods can last far longer than a glass tube, especially if they get splashed with grease, which is a common event in a toaster oven. A metal rod can simply burn the grease off but a glass tube can shatter or instantly burn out. So I only consider ovens of this type conditionally acceptable if you use a lot of care to protect the tubes from getting splashed.SMARTThey use the word smart loosely, this oven doesn t really sense the doneness of your food like some toasters I have owned. It simply determines how much heat to use for how long depending on what you tell it to do, so you are really the one doing the smarts. To me the word smart really goes back to the word convenience being able to choose a setting with one simple dial, adjust time and temperature with simple push buttons, having a large clearly marked on/off button, having the display change color to tell you it s cooking, and having a convenient button to add a little more cooking time if you need it without resetting everything from scratch.WISH THEY DIDN TI mentioned that the size of the oven was my most important factor is choosing this model. The layout of the controls was second and the speed was the third. None of the other models I considered had all three. There are a few minor things that I don t care for though. One is the etched on writing on the door reminding me which shelf position to use to cook various things, I think it is useless and the painted on labels detract from the look of the device and of my kitchen. I also don t like that there is no hook to slide the wire shelf out when I open the door. This used to be standard on every toaster oven. I think it s inconvenient and dangerous not to have it. The last thing isn t a negative, it s an observation I cannot understand why anyone would complain about this or any toaster product because it gets hot . What are they expecting, on what planet does an appliance meant to toast something not get hot? For the record this model doesn t get much hotter or stay any cooler than any other toaster I ve owned, in fact using professional grade thermography test equipment I measured the outer cabinet to be slightly cooler than the Cuisinart. The simple answer is that your mom should have taught you a long time ago not to touch a hot stove. There is one review I read suggesting to use an extension cord so you can push this toaster right up to the wall in your kitchen. DON T! You will burn your house down. If the little pull tab on the power cord bothers you, simply plug it in to another outlet that s not located right behind the toaster. But never use any extension cord on any toaster and never push it any closer to the wall than the manufacturer tells you to.MORE ABOUT IT BEING TOO HOTSince there are several one star reviews that dismiss it for the sole reason that it gets hot , here are some extra facts about that topic. If you set your oven for 400 degrees its temperature is going to be 400 degrees. It doesn t matter if you have a Breville, an Oster, a Cuisinart or a no-name brand they will all be the same temperature inside. If it s not getting hot and your oven is cold it s not doing its job and that s what someone should be complaining about, not that it gets hot. A toaster isn t a toaster if it doesn t get hot. The more powerful it is, the higher the wattage will be and the faster it will toast and the result of that is heat. It s simple science. A hot toaster is a good thing and people who buy it should be adult enough not to touch it, place it close to a wall, put anything on it that can melt or burn, or allow children to play with it like a toy. I don t know how anyone can expect any stove or toaster to cook and not get hot, and I m even more baffled why they would complain about it and consider it a defect or a reason to give it a negative review. I attached those professional thermal imaging photos showing my highly rated Cuisinart next to the Mini to directly compare the amount of heat created by both of them. See for yourself.TROUBLESHOOTINGBased on user comments there are most commonly misunderstood concerns about this product s reliability. Here is some info that may be helpful in determining the true cause for a perceived issue.1. It gets hot as discussed earlier that is not a fault but rather simply how a toaster works2. It smokes that s steam, a normal byproduct of what food does when it heat it. If it s real smoke then your food is burning, that would be a user error3. It s too small they make other sizes, if this model is too small don t buy it4. The dial is hard to read choose another model or brand, after using it 2-3 times you will learn where your favorite settings are without having to even look at the dial5. The weird plug keep complaining, maybe they will eventually listen. That hook doesn t make much sense but if it s in the way just plug it in to a different outlet6. It broke I have yet to read any review giving details what they mean by broke. As I have explained earlier this model (as well as many other brands) use glass tubes that are essentially light bulbs. Those are delicate and can break and they will absolutely burn out. That s not a defect, it s the trade off for an oven that gets hot fast. If that concerns you buy an oven with metal heating rods7. That clicking sound again, not a defect. Quartz tube ovens work by turning the light bulb on and off, the temperature of the bulb itself can t actually be controlled. What you are hearing is the relay that powers the bulb on and off, it s normal and it has to do that. If it really bothers you get an oven that uses metal heating rods, they don t click. Oh, and I really can t even hear the clicking unless I m standing right in front of it.A DOSE OF REALITYI am constantly amused about comments about how some users either love or hate the way a toaster oven cooks, as if they could really tell a difference. This appliance is one of the most basic things in a kitchen, a technology that goes back to the stone age. In the simplest terms, it's a metal box with a wire rack that heats food to a certain temperature and cooks it for a certain time. There's nothing magic about that, it can't make food taste better. In theory every model sold does the identical thing the same way, the only difference is how it looks and whether you manually choose the time and temperature or a built in program does that for you. But the process of the heating elements getting hot and cooking your food never changes no matter how much or how little you paid for the thing. If it burns your food it s not the toaster's fault, it has no idea what you put in the oven and what you consider "properly done". So, sorry to rain on any parades but no, this gadget won t and can t make your food taste any better nor will it make you the next Julia Child.YES OR NOThis product met all of my needs as expected and I think it is in fact designed and made to a higher quality standard than cheaper ones. And the reality is that if you are looking for one that takes up a minimal amount of counter space you probably know that most of the more deluxe ones aren t this small. It fits a niche, it may not be for everyone, but for the reasons listed above I chose this one and I m satisfied.I m neither here to defend nor condemn this product, I paid a lot of my hard earned money to buy it which entitles me to my opinions. I simply believe in facts versus baseless accusations. I hope this information has been useful to you and if so please feel free to comment. 5Great smart oven, worth the moneyI purchased this to use during our house renovation. We needed something that could substitute for a lack of kitchen oven. I am pleasantly surprised with how great this smart oven is. We have used it for multiple things from simple toasting to baking a whole chicken. The Breville is easy to use and heats up quickly. I love how easy it is to clean, one of my issues with other toaster ovens was not being able to clean them well and crumbs burning. This is super easy, the bottom tray comes out and there are no crevasses for crumbs to fall through. The oven offers multiple settings and we have used every one. It bakes well and broils well. Did have to try several attempts to get the toast setting right. It doesn't toast evenly on top/bottom if the rack isn't positioned right and you will need to "test" the setting to get your preferred darkness. As some other reviewers mentioned, it does get very hot on top. As suggested, I placed a wooden cutting board on top (see pic) to avoid accidental burning if touched or if something is placed on top. This works great. Since we are without a kitchen I have not placed it on a counter top under cabinetry so I cannot speak to whether the heat will be an issue for cabinets. As to some of the complaints about the beeping being too loud, I do not agree at all. I'm not sure if theirs is different than ours, but it is not loud at all. It is also looks nice and is not too big or bulky. Should look great in our new kitchen. I can say that thanks to this smart oven I am able to cook some decent meals while our kitchen is being built. Saved us from having take out every night! It was worth the money. 5If the plug in was flat like many others today, this would have got 5 starsI can't really speak on even toasting because I don't like eating hard toasted bread, but this toaster nicely crisps up my bread and I love it! Very happy with overall purchase.Pros:The look! It fits in perfectly with my other stainless steel appliances.The size! It's one of the only smaller toaster ovens I could find (with decent reviews)The crumb tray! So very easy to clean!Ease of use. All I really have to do is select bake or toast and move the tray.Interior space. Deep and wide enough for many of the things indeed to cook for a 2 person family.Cons:Cannot mount under cupboardCannot place anything on top of it during and immediately after use. ( burned a plastic lid just by toasting something) although someone on here placed a wooden cutting board on top and that would work!The plug in. Seriously?! Why does it stick out so far?!There's no on/off button, it just turns off after a few minutes of inactivity. 4TIPSHave had it a year now ... some thoughts. The top gets a bit hot so I keep two silicone trivets on the top and I can keep things up on top without worry. The trivets let you reclaim some counter space and maybe add a little color to your kitchen. The back has bumpers which protrude an inch to keep oven away from the back wall taking up more space. Gets up to temperature real quick, a hugh advantage over my gas oven. Even though my gas is free and I pay for electric, I don't hesitate to use the Breville when I'm in a hurry. The "alarm" is not loud by anyone's standard ... a couple of pings and that's it. You have to stoop down to read the dial settings ...unless you have them memorized. Mine seems to run a little hotter than temperature settings but not a problem. Don't forget to remove the pan when it's not called for ... like toasting bread. Here are max pans sizes from the instruction booklet:The following bakeware will fit into the oven:- 7 x 11 baking pan no handles- 9 square baking pan- 6 cup muffin tin- 9 loaf pan- Up to 11 pie plate 4Adequate But Requires ImprovementI like that the oven is small and compact and can fit below my cabinets. It also heats very quickly and seems to hold a uniform temperature while baking. I also like the execution of the crumb tray which is easier to remove and clean than most of the toaster ovens I have used in the past.On the negative side, it does not toast all that evenly. There are definite hot spots which sometimes force you to rotate the bread during the toasting process. The controls are also not as useful as they could be. Attempting to control toasting by darkness and number of slices takes a lot of trial and error to find an optimum combination (I have used this product for several weeks and am still adjusting the settings to meet my requirements).Finally, the rack inside the pan is not well designed. Rather than having a stop or mechanism to hold it in place, it just slides out. This can create a difficult situation when attempting to work with food that is not positioned at the immediate front of the oven. Several times the hot rack has fallen out and I have experienced minor burns. This oven definitely needs to be used extremely carefully to prevent injury.REVISION:After many frustrating efforts, I find myself forced to revise my earlier review. No amount of playing with the settings appears to result in toast which could remotely be called uniform. On occasion, I have had toast where the top is burnt but the bottom of the bread almost white. In addition, I have found that, although the oven is capable of holding temperature relatively during the bake cycle, the heating elements on the bottom appear to be doing the majority of the work leaving items dried out or burnt on the bottom while getting the top of an item browned is almost impossible. I would definitely return this if it was not past the permitted time - too frustrating. 1BEWARE: don't buy this oven--too hot to use safelyI've used toaster ovens for years, and I'm used to the amount of heat they can generate, but with this model, we managed to fry two other appliances, when their electrical cords came in accidental contact with the back of this unit--and that's during a 3-4 minute toasting cycle, not even using the longer-timed oven features. And this is that fancy model I'd been eyeballing for awhile--worth the investment you think, right? Not! There is a metal shield on the back of the unit that still manages to get hot enough to melt heavy duty appliance cords really quickly. We are used to wrangling cords--and use wraps and such to control them, but it's not unusual, in a typical kitchen, on a typical counter to have a few cords, right? Beware--this unit may look lovely, but is not safe! I would absolutely return it now if I could. :-( 1Wife hates it.Me, even if a bit pricey I m completely satisfied, but my wife hates it. Her main complaint is the complications of all the settings. That s fine I could teach her how it works but she can t read the dial either. I have to admit she has a point. Even I have to lean in and squint at that tiny black text on brushed stainless steel. If someone made an aftermarket label kit To upgrade the readability of the controls I d be a buyer of that kit. 3At first my husband and I were very pleased with its performanceI bought this toaster oven in March 2016. At first my husband and I were very pleased with its performance. But now, in February 2018, it's starting to burn the bottom of our toast. Is this what we've come too - a shelf life of two years before you have to replace an appliance? What concerns us, too, is that, because we liked the product, last October we gave one as a gift. Now, we also have to worry about being embarrassed. Buyer beware! 1
