Why the Breville Smart Oven?
Every Breville product begins with a simple moment of brilliance. The Breville Smart Oven began with the simple fact that different foods require different methods of heating: some, like baked goods, need to be cooked evenly; others, like meats, need to be seared on top. Most toaster ovens fail to distribute heat in a consistent way throughout their interiors, let alone change heat distribution to suit the different foods being prepared. This is how the Breville Smart Oven stands apart: whatever the food, it adjusts its heat distribution for perfect results.
An oven that does the thinking for you
The Smart Oven is equipped with Element IQ cooking technology, which adjusts the power of the five individual quartz heating elements to cook food more evenly and quickly. This sophisticated heating system distributes heat throughout the oven when and where it is needed, to guarantee more efficient cooking. Nine different menu options allow users to choose the best setting for the food they are cooking. In addition to dynamically distributing heat to different areas, the Smart Oven can adjust the wattage of its heating elements for even more cooking flexibility. Most ovens have elements with fixed wattage that can only switch between ON and OFF, but Element IQ functions much like a dimmer on a light switch, increasing or decreasing element power with a simple turn of the knob.
For example, broiling requires high heat from above in order to melt and brown, so the Smart Oven activates 1500W of high heat from the top elements of the oven. On the other hand, toast needs to be cooked evenly on both sides without drying out the inside, so the Smart Oven uses high radiated heat from above and below (1800W distributed between four elements) to crisp the outside quickly.
Baking utilizes another feature of the Smart Oven that contributes to even heating: convection heating. Convection cooking uses a fan to circulate hot air so all sides of the food cook at the same rate. This is particularly important for baked goods, such as cookies and cakes, which need to be cooked evenly all the way through.
Each of these nine functions is preset with recommended settings, taking the guesswork out of cooking. However, each can be customized according to recipe, volume of food, or personal taste. Customized settings will remain in the memory of the oven until changed or until the oven is unplugged from the wall outlet, streamlining your cooking process.
Designed with the consumer in mind
The Smart Oven is carefully constructed from the most durable materials. It is attractively housed in reinforced stainless steel, a striking addition to any kitchen. The elements themselves are composed of quartz, rather than the metal elements found in other toaster ovens. Quartz responds more quickly to heat change, which results in more even heating throughout the oven. The roomy interior is coated with a non-stick material that can safely withstand high temperatures, making cleanup easier. A crumb/drip tray that is accessible from the front of the oven (rather than the back, like many other toaster ovens) also makes it easier to clean between cooking sessions. In addition, the oven includes a patented magnetic auto-eject rack: small magnets embedded on the sides of the oven door pull the wire rack halfway from the oven when the door is opened, making food easier to remove and preventing burns.
At 18.5 x16.25 x11.25 inches, the Breville Smart Oven is not too small but not too large. It is larger than most toaster ovens, with space to comfortably fit six slices of toast, a 13-inch pizza, or a whole chicken. However, as a countertop convection oven, it is more space-efficient than a conventional wall oven. A smaller oven means less time to heat up and less time to cook, perfect for preparing a meal in a hurry (or for cooks who like to create in the heat of the moment). This also translates into a cooler kitchen (particularly convenient in the hot summer months) and less energy consumed.

I'm going to contact Breville customer service but I'm not holding my breath for a favorable resolution outside the warranty period. I'll update this review with what comes next.
If you are set on this oven, I'd recommend paying extra for the warranty. Otherwise, look elsewhere. But even the extended warranty is only two years, and if it is necessary to replace this every two years I would still say your better off looking elsewhere for both a durable and quality product. I'd say this oven is good quality but not durable enough to warrant the cost.
EDIT: My friend recommended a solution to my problem - contact American Express and use their 1-year warranty extension program. I did this instead of trying to navigate through Breville's customer service (which seemed harder and more time-consuming than it should be). AMEX did a great job, and just refunded me my money. I did some follow-up research to see what compact oven to buy, and it seems like enough people are having issues with their Breville out-of-warranty that I didn't want to risk it again. I ended up going with the new Cuisinart TOB-260N, and I'm so far very pleased with the purchase. It isn't as intuitive to use as the Breville, but the build quality is just as nice and the cooking results are as good if not better. The extra accessories with this oven were really nice (pizza oven and extra rack on top of broiler pan and baking sheet). I also think the Cuisinart baking sheet is higher quality than the one I got with the Breville. Oh, and the most important thing - there is a 3 year warranty on the Cuisinart! I think that says a lot about the longevity that Cuisinart expects from this kind of product. Also, when I purchased my Cuisinart it was $190, nearly $100 less than the Breville.
The dials feel cheap and flimsy. Sometimes when making selections the screen will move two choices rather then one at a time. So the dials are not calibrated very well.
The oven operates very well. I have seen reviews about the temperature being off. I have not yet noticed this.
This oven has been out for some time now. I would have thought the company to fix these issues a little more proactively.
So, my first impressions are not that high for a machine that cost this much. Price to quality of the product should be higher. 3 of 5 stars. It works well when you don't have to mess with glitchy LCD screens and over sensitive dials.
After some more time with the oven I decided to get a thermometer and make sure I was getting the right temperature to see if the other reviews had some truth. To my surprise there is. I have been frequently using the oven to bake between 400-450 degrees Fahrenheit. The thermometer I just purchased reads roughly 100 or more degree cooler than what the ovens display says it should be at when the preheat is completed. With this being said I am going to have to reduce my 3 star rating down to a 2 star rating.
Uploaded two photos.
A couple months ago, I realized that the screen was broken. Once it begins cooking, the screen flashes and eventually the digital display shows a few dashes. The control panel (the buttons and knobs) become very hot, and the cancel button does not work. You can't turn the unit off, when clearly it's overheating. The only way to turn it off is to unplug it. If you plug it back in, it resumes flashing. Once the unit cools down, then it can be plugged in again.
Basically, I can't use this anymore for fear that it will burn down the apartment. Also, since the display doesn't work when the oven is in use, it never tells me how hot it is or how much time is left.
I expected more for $250!
