Comment:
As a single person, I use this for almost all of my baking needs. I've had this oven for more than 4 years, and 4 moves; it still works perfectly. Excellent for baking brownies, fish, chicken, potatoes, heating frozen dinners, etc. The automatic shut-off feature ensures you don't have to worry about overcooking or burning--if you've set the time and temperature correctly. I highly recommend this oven.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Works ok, when it's not broken

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.

Imprecise Controls
Best Uses
None Once It Breaks
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.
