I bought this item back in April 2015 and pulling it out of the box it looked really sharp. I t also performed well for the first couple of months. After a couple of months it would not power up. I tried troubleshooting it myself but it was definitely something internal. Figured possibly fuse or power supply. Even though Breville customer service replaced it when I called them with this issue, it was still disappointing and trouble some to return it. You can either wait for the new product to ship to you or you can give them a $100 deposit for them to send the new one right away and of course you will get the money back once they get the damaged product. I gave it a 2 star is because with the new one they sent it damaged. The "function knob" was very hard to turn, there was no postal damage to the box. After a little tweaking I got it to turn smoother. The only issue now is after about a month the convectional fan is now making a loud noise for about 10 minutes. Its still under warranty and I am sure Breville will replace it again but its the hassle. Well at least I hope they replace it.
The design of the oven looks great on my counter. I love that there are so many functions and I can tell it how many pieces of toast or pizza are in the oven. I Bought this toaster oven because my mother in law raved about how great hers worked.
You really get what you pay for in this unit - it is very easy to use and does a lot of different things. Of course it toasts but it roasts, bakes, keeps things warm and more. The convection feature is great and cooking times can be reduced a little as well. It has generous capacity and the included baking/roasting pans are very good quality. The user interface is very attractive and easy to use and I would recommend this item to anyone.
