"Been suffering for years with toasters that do not toast the same color on both sides of a piece of bread. This one does! The feature I call "Take a peak" that allows me to check the color of the toast and the feature that allows me to toast the bread a little more if it is not done enough after the toaster thinks it is done are great bonuses. I've had this thing just two months. If it keeps working as it is now, it will be a winner. The only problem I have is that the toast is so nicely toasted that I am eating more toast. Rye dipped in really flavorful olive oil is my favorite."

By far the best toaster that i have owned

"I have had the toaster for over a year and it is absolutely amazing. The toast is always consistant and you can check on the amount it has toasted before the cycle is done. We had a problem that was totally our fault and although it was still working the customer service person I spoke to didn't want to chance anything so they replaced it with a new one. Not only would I recommend this toaster but I would feal very comfortable buying any of there products. Again GREAT TOASTER AND GREAT COMPANY!!!!!"

Bravo Breville, Bravo!

"This is a superb product. After a couple of years of loving this toaster in California, we have moved to Europe and I am on this website trying to find the exact same product in a 230V model.

The Bentley of toasters - Like a Rolls but with a decent dashboard."

After way over 70 years of hype, toasting perfection

"I'm pretty old now, and I have been through one heck of a lot of toasters, from Germany to the U.S.A., from the early ones where you opened up a door of each side to turn the bread around to toast the other side to the modern motor operated ones, and this Breville is the first that actually lives up to its claims. It toasts evenly on both sides, accepts all reasonably sized and types of bread and does a decent job on bagels. In fact, it is the only toaster I have owned that really toasts evenly, apparently no small accomplishment since all companies claim it, but none live up to what they promise. It is also incredibly fast in doing its job, and is very easy to set and clean up. It is true that the "A Bit More" feature is more like a re-warm function, but so what....the re-warm function is more useful anyway, and lowering the toast for a shorter setting is easily done manually. It is expensive, it fact 3 times the price of the Russell Hobbs (A past "Best Toaster") it replaced, but it actually does 3 times better a job in bread handling and toasting. No more digging around in the slots for shorter bread slices, and no more fetching light in weight pieces of toast that shoot across the room (One of the more fun features of the Russell Hobbs....really....gives it personality). 100% recommended! i own the Die-cast 4-Slice Smart Toaster: BTA840XL.
