Comment:
The oven was great for 2 years and now the entire control knobs are not functioning . The Frozen alert continues beeping, the heating does not stabilize and the unit is pretty much defunct. Called Breville and for $120 bucks we can return and be fixed and returned . They weren't much help on trouble shooting other than to suggest to unplug and retry. Very disappointed considering the unit is secondary to our main oven so usage is not but 3-4 times a week.
How long have you owned it:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Performs all functions to perfection, but once the LED backlight on the control panel display goes out, becomes very difficult to use. Replacing the whole oven because the light is not replaceable is maddening. Similar complaints on other review sites.

Comment:
This was an expensive appliance and I expected it to last longer than 2 years. Esp since my husband and I don't use it on a daily basis. The appliance looks in perfect condition - really seems a waste to just toss it, but the company charges $99 to repair it (with only a 6 mo warranty) or if can't fix will send reconditioned one - or can choose to accept 30% off purchase of new oven through them. As much as I liked this appliance - $100 a year is more than I want to spend on a toaster oven.
