Comment:
Purchased this oven and just before the warranty expired it died. Breville was responsive and we returned the oven, after finding a box and packing material. Well, the replacement just died and the warranty is up.<br /><br />Would be a great toaster oven if it lasted, but yours will die soon too...just pray you are under warranty. Keep the box and the receipt.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Two adults used this machine daily, but just for toasting, baking potatoes, things like that...no casseroles or heavy use.<br />A little over a year later (coincidentally, the expiration of the warranty period,) the bloody thing died.<br />It's a non-functioning controller, which likely has a repair cost as much as replacement of the whole oven.<br />Our next purchase is for a junky, cheap toaster oven.<br />At least we won't feel ripped-off after the thing dies right after the too-brief warranty period.<br />Most expensive and junkiest toaster oven we ever bought.<br />Never again.<br />Paid over $160 at Williams-Sonoma when it was on sale; shame on them for selling such a poor product.

Comment:
The day after I submitted the previous post I was able to again contact Breville Customer service and on this occasion the company satisfactorily rectified my problem with the oven. As one of the more costly toaster ovens on the market I had hoped for a more resilient product. However, as it is with any family of products I realize I may have received a 'lemon' the first time. The main thing is when the oven was functioning it was fine and in the end the company stood by their product and corrected the situation. After my initial post I felt strongly that it's only right to give Breville the credit it deserves for their handling of my issue and to communicate that fact to the Consumer Reports community.
