Comment:
About a year ago the LED control panel began to flicker and grow dim. Continued dimming and now is off completely. Only way to read it is to use a flashlight! Breville has been contacted for advice but is unresponsive. Do not recommend buying this item.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I decided to go for the best rated on CR and I haven't regretted it one second. I love this thing. Heats us fast. Great for rewarming food. I love that it shuts off and you have precise control with the digital display. It's nice and big so you can fit a 9 by 9 baking tin inside. I have baked banana pancakes and breads in it and all turned out great. <br /><br />Love that the trays automatically come out so you can get food more easily on the middle and top racks when it is hot.<br /><br />I haven't owned it for very long but I feel it is a great addition to my kitchen. I have used it in place of both my microwave and oven for the past 3 to 4 weeks without need to use either and been extremely happy with the results. I use this in place of my microwave every day to reheat food. It turns out much better and much more evenly heated than any microwave ever would. I work from home so that means at least 2 meals a day it is getting used.<br /><br />You shouldn't wash the trays in the dishwasher but I haven't needed to. After use I simply soak for a few minutes in soapy water and then sponge off/dry.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Worked extremely well for almost a year. Controls then went 'bonky'. Took it in for warranty work over 7 weeks ago and we are STILL WAITING for the part!
