Product Description

Size: 4-Slice

The Breville 4 Slice Smart Toaster has an internal smart chip that lowers bread into the toasting slots with a single touch and also regulates the toasting time. On the "a bit more" setting bread is automatically lowered for additional toasting time. The auto lift and look feature automatically raises the bread carriage during toasting without canceling or resetting the cycle. This enables you to view, and if necessary, cancel the browning cycle at any time. The LED panel illuminates according to the selected setting on the variable browning control. The display acts as a toasting progress indicator, counting down how long is left in the toasting cycle. The toaster beeps when the cycle is complete. Made of brushed die-cast metal the exterior wipes clean with a soft cloth. The heating element is 1800 watts and each side operates independently of the other. Four wide slots accommodate waffles, bagels or toast. Defrost, reheat, bagel and cancel functions. Complete with a Breville assist plug for easy cord removal and cord wrap storage underneath.

Bottom line is this toaster works well, the outcome is predictable, the controls are easy to operate, and it looks GREAT!
In addition, features such as "lift and look," "a bit more," and the bagel option (also works great on English muffins) are handy and really work.
Charles Heywood
It is a tad expensive but worth every penny and we are hoping this is the last toaster we will ever buy so worth the money.

I had two false starts: A T-Fal delux had slots too short for my favorite bakery bread, a Haier did a very disappointing job on English muffins (using the bagel setting) and did not toast both sides of bread the same. The price of this Breville is a bit hard to take, however it performs beautifully and is built like the sturdy toasters I remember as a kid while having very modern features. It has a "frozen" choice that actually compensates for your bread if it is frozen, as well as a 2 other features that make this a really good choice - the "just a bit more" button drops the toast for just what it says and works quite well, second, the "lift and look" button pauses your cycle while it raises your bread/bagel to check it. Handy if you are working with a brand/density of bread that's new to you. But the real selling point is that it actually toast both sides evenly - the outsides of the bread are nicely golden while the inside is still tender. That seems such a simple thing, but it's amazing how difficult that is to find.

I spent about a year looking at toasters on Amazon. Needed one for my renovated house. I just could not bring myself to pay $128 for a toaster, but after reading features, was also unable to buy anything else. I convinced myself that it would look so great with my black soapstone counters and brushed stainless appliance junk that I should really consider it a renovation cost. Problem solved!
Toaster arrived last weekend, have taken several days off from job to make toast. First, let's just say how cool the thing looks and works. Yes, it is weighty, but I don't carry it around much. But, it's got these cool tech buttons that do all the heaviest work, like moving the toast up and down. Then there is that row of LEDs that flash to show how much toasting time remains. Also very cool! And it wasn't until I read revies here that I understood what "bagel" settings were. This one has 'em. "Lift and look" takes away some of the dark side of toasting, but is great for the anxiety-ridden. "A little bit more" is also fun, though there is no "little bit less". Anyway great fun and great looks. I can't wait to see how house-guests respond. I have to find a house-guest.
One of my biggest hesitations about the Breville, aside from humorous price, was the reviews suggesting it was unable to toast evenly. I immediately bought bread at Acme and found even toasting, slice after slice. The local sparrows were happy with the experiment and urged a repeat run. I guess reviewers here must have gotten bum units? I am surprised Breville does not want to take back the product they bought? I noted in the manual (RTFM) that they recommend a dedicated circuit (and what next, a dedicated toast house?), but they do say if it doesn't get sufficient amps it may perform poorly.

I'm 44 years old and have been eating cereal all my life for breakfast. About 3 years ago I decided I had eaten enough cereal and needed to shake things up a bit. So, I decided that I would convert to eating toast and bagels for breakfast. Not so easy. There are a lot of bogus toasters out there, and I have had my share of them. I'm an aerospace engineer and am pretty picky when it comes to home appliances! They either burn it black in a matter of seconds, or there is no way to accurately predict the outcome of any given slice of toast or bagel, and they often look cheesy! I have a custom house and gourmet kitchen (Sub-zero and Wolf appliances), so I wanted a toaster that looked good on my quartz countertops. We are a family of three, and my old toasters were always 2-slice models, so serving 3 persons at exactly the same time was always a challenge (we have it tough - eh?). This Breville toaster fixed all our toast problems!

First of all, it is not THAT expensive, as there are some brands that push the price range that easily doubles the cost of this toaster. Indeed, it is a middle-to-high priced toaster but worth every penny. What do you get for your money? For starters, you get a toaster that actually works - it makes great toast! The buttons are pure simplicity to operate. The graduated LED indicators for the toast time duration is perfect - it is time-based, so it cooks toast exactly the same time each and every time. I find that 3 works well for English Muffin bread, 3.5 for Thomas' English Muffins and Whole Grain bagels from Panerra, and 4 for very hearty and crusty homemade bread.

Size Name: 4-Slice Verified Purchase
First, I'm a technology geek who is always attracted to gadgets. However, I'm demanding in that they must be high quality and work well. I want the best performance for the dollar and am usually willing to pay more to get it. I first tried the KitchenAid 4 slice toaster that has received high marks on this site. I opened box and immediately felt the parts were cheap and likely wouldn't last long.
I then decided to get the Breville 4 slice which by comparison is built like a "Sherman tank". It feels like it is twice the weight; the controls are simple and ingeniously logical. Important to us is that it toasts evenly, consistantly and every side of the toaster stays cool to the touch except for the very top (makes sense to me). The clean out trays are super easy to use.
My wife is the opposite of me - not impressed by technology and will usually look for the lowest priced item out there even if it becomes a "throw away" after 3 months. Even she felt the KitchenAid lacked durability and OK'd its return.
After my 15 second Breville lesson for her she said things I never heard from her before like: "Wow this is built so logically and well this will last forever"; "Boy that (lift & look) feature will save a lot of wear on this unit because that seems to be why other toasters break most- lifting up on the front lever spring to check how much it is toasted"; "This is the first toaster that had slots long enough for Rye bread".
Like I said she is never impressed by gadgets so what surprised me most after I did an errand was when she excitedly welcomed me at the door with "That was the best toast I ever had!" Who gets that excited over a toaster? Certainly not her.
My experience with Breville has led to my son buying the variable speed juicer (5 stars); I'm going to get myself the Breville Smart Oven and for our anniversary I'm going to get the Breville Coffee maker. By year end everything on our kitchen counter will be Breville. Do they make a microwave yet?
