Question of durability

Comment:
I have now owned 2 of these units. Neither was subjected to heavy use and like all our kitchen tools was taken care of. The first units LED display malfunctioned and I will say that after a long but polite conversation with Breville customer service they did replace the unit. Now fast forward about 2-3 years ---- the unit just died. I normally keep the oven unplugged when not in use, went to plug and I thought at first the power was out but no such luck. <br />Breville said that for $119 they will fix or replace the unit with a Re-manufactured unit. They will also cover shipping. Although tempting, at this writing I don't believe I will do that but instead buy another brand. I have to say that this oven gets very good reviews on a number of sites/forums but I am not happy with the quality. For this price this unit should last far longer than it has, especially as this was not subject to heavy use at all. Based on my experience I think I will be wasting my money. If you purchase I hope you have better luck than I.

Comment:
Nice and well designed product. One of the best on the market while working!!<br />The product seems to be not robust, the on/off switch in my item, is not working properly.<br />Reading the others reports, the product has to be redesign, based on customers feedback.<br />Another issue is the customer service and also the warranty period that is too short for this problematic product.

Comment:
This toaster oven worked great for the first year. My family enjoyed all of the features and it looked great too!<br />The LCD control knob started to go just after the first year. The knob to select the options does not work or light up. It will soon become impossible to use and will need to be replaced.
