Rated 5 out of 5 by Bookluver Highly Recommended!
Over the years I have owned a number of toaster ovens. When my smaller Kitchenaid counter top oven finally bit the dust several months ago, I knew I wanted a counter top oven that would accommodate a frozen or deli pizza. After seeing David present this model by Breville and comparison pricing, it was obvious this was an excellent bargain. I've used my Breville almost daily since it was delivered, and it is the best counter top oven I've ever used! It does everything it was demonstrated to do and the temperature setting is amazingly accurate. Love the setting options--especially the one for frozen items! QVC also carries the accessory items--cutting board and pizza pan.

Not as good as I had hoped, Oven function is acceptable but toaster function is poor.
I could have gotten the same performance for half the price. It is not defective, so I will not return it

I bought this to replace a toaster. I use it for so many meals. Very versatile and I love the sleek look. Certainly much more useful than my toaster.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Janique Great oven/toaster with small footprint
I've had several toaster ovens over the years and this one does the same or better than much larger ones that took up a lot of counter space. Its versatile and while I used the others I had for small baking or top browning, in addition to the toaster abilities (which weren't that even on some others), I find myself using all of the functions on this one. It also allows for longer cooking times than the standard 30 min. One of the best parts though is how little counter space it takes up while still having the same or larger capacity.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nhgram Love this oven
What a great little oven. I do not use my large oven any more, this small oven is just fine for my baking needs. It preheats so fast, it's ready to go while I'm still mixing the batter for the cake. I put my two slice toaster away and just use this toaster oven. It makes great toast and muffins The pull out crumb tray is so handy and easy to use. I just wish the print for the dials was easier to read. Other than that, it's perfect for me.

From a Mom of 5, place a frozen pizza in this oven, turn the knob to pizza, hit start, walk away, it will automatically shut off after a certain time. Pizza comes out perfect every time. Don't have enough time to tell you all the other great features, I have owned this model for several years.

I've bought 3 of these ovens. We use it daily in our home. Forget the big, fancy double ovens..this oven does everything faster and better! Even turns itself off. We put one on our boat; and it is all we need. Can handle 8 chicken breasts to a tenderloin. Amazing!
I bought my 90 year old mother one. No worries about her 'leaving the oven on.' She uses her other oven to store pots and pans!
Every kitchen should have this wonderful product!
Rated 5 out of 5 by srroberts Perfect Counter top oven
When I remodeled my small NYC galley kitchen, I traded having a ceiling fan for more cabinet space since my new cabinets go all the way to the ceiling. Losing the fan meant that whenever I used my new beautiful GE slide-in range oven, the kitchen was really hot!
Enter the Breville Compact Smart Oven! I debated for months over which of the options to buy and finally decided on this mid size one. (the smaller one is too small and the larger one is way too large). So far, I've loved it. Toast is perfect, I've baked a frozen pizza and baked buttermilk biscuits. I bake tater puffs instead of frying them and they come out crispy and perfect (the secret is to add a small pat of butter during the last 5 minutes of baking). I plan to make a breakfast pizza this weekend and also bake a mac and cheese So far--this is perfect and I see myself using this instead of my regular oven for most things since I'm cooking for one. Wish I had made this purchase sooner and the 5 easy pay option really helped me take the leap!
