Comment:
Great while it worked. Suddenly it just 'died'. Contacting Breville impossible as support phone # 'dead' just like the oven and internet contact limited to US. 'Support' indeed!<br />CR should not recommend this unit so highly. Durability questionable.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I ordered the Smart Oven from Williams-Sonoma. I received it yesterday and its convection fan stopped working today after baking once and toasting once. Apparently fan failure is a common problem in the Smart Oven (among others, like failing heat elements and display backlights). I tried calling Breville customer service but the number printed on the instruction book was no longer in service (just double-checked to make sure I didn't dial it wrong). I found a working number on their website but they were closed so I called Williams-Sonoma. Williams-Sonoma customer service was open and extremely helpful in arranging a return and refund. Breville thumbs down, Williams-Sonoma thumbs up.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
