How do you perfectly toast any slice no matter what type of bread? Add an extra 30 seconds for well that little bit more. The Breville BTA720XL Bit More toaster also features a 'Lift & Look' Lever which raises and lowers the carriage to show the browning progress without interrupting the toasting cycle. Additionally, the high lift feature raises the carriage approximately a 1/2 inch making it easier to remove smaller items such as English Muffins.

If you have a short pieces of bread, and you make sure you place them near the edges, and you happen to get one of these with filaments that light/heat up in most places, this might be an ok toaster for you.
On a side note, I have also tried the slightly cheaper BTA630XL. It performs far better at toasting then the BTA730XL, but its plastic housing leaves a lot to be desired (especially with reviews claiming it turns yellow over time, and all the buttons/text rub off). The BTA630XL is suitable for toasting long pieces since the heating elements span its entire width.
It’s not easy to innovate in the world of toasters. After all, there isn’t too much that a toaster needs to deliver on. I just wanted something that:
1. looked nice
2. toasted evenly
3. was compatible with bagels
4. had a simple interface (no frivolous features)
5. didn’t take up much room (I opted for the 2 slice variant)
My favorite lifestyle/home products review website, The Sweethome recommends The Bit More as their “Upgrade” pick. I honestly went with this one over the Oster Jelly Bean Toaster (which costs half as much) because I thought this one would look really nice in my new kitchen, which has an abundance of brushed metal appliances (and it does). The “Bit More” feature sounded really handy as well (and it is).
Since you already know that I really like this toaster, let me give you a quick rundown of what I like and dislike about this product in the form of readily digestible bullet points.
- Beautiful industrial design. The brushed metal body blends in with my kitchen really well, and I think the texture in general is a pretty universal fit in most kitchens (unlike the solid colors Oster’s Jelly Bean comes in). The LED lights that indicate toasting time are absolutely delightful. The row of lights light up and down as you move the knob, and it’s a strange feeling to have such a simple little kitchen appliance behave this way. Even the power cable is designed to be unplugged effortlessly, with an actual hole for your finger to pass through when pulling.
- Toasting levels are REASONABLE. This one is huge. A lot of toasters usually come with a timing system that really doesn’t care about setting your bread on fire on the maximum setting. While I don’t set my The Bit More’s timing knob on the maximum setting ever, I don’t think it will burn your bread to charcoal levels of blackness (although you can use the “Bit More” feature to achieve that if you want!). No more worrying about overdoing your toast. You can feel free to turn up the timing and still not have to worry.
- The “Bit More” feature is more than a gimmick. I often change bread and bagel brands, because why not? The amount of toasting required for the perfect crispiness varies between them. It’s really nice to be able to hit that button, start toasting and walk away for a bit. Regardless of the timing knob’s current position, it automatically toasts for 30 extra seconds.
- Toasting is fairly uniform. I mostly use it for bagels, but it works really well for bread slices as well. It’s not extremely uniform, visually. But I can never tell if one part of my bagel has been toasted more than the other by taste. You can see an example of what my bagels look like after toasting in one of the attached images.
- It's sufficiently easy to clean. Crumbs (and seeds from my everything bagels) go through several different gaps and holes throughout the body and collect at the bottom. It's not perfect, but can be cleaned using the removable crumb tray and by shaking the entire device over a sink. So far, it seems there aren't many corners where crumbs can get trapped.
- The “Lift and Look” feature is only moderately useful. Maybe it’s just the size of my bread slices and bagels, but the lift doesn’t seem to make much of a difference. You can peek in just as well without lifting, although it may help slightly when picking the bread up and out of the slots.
- The toaster body gets hot. I never move mine off my kitchen counter, so it isn’t a big deal to me. But keep in mind that most of the metal body conducts heat and you may have to wait a bit if you like to put your toaster away after use.
If you don’t mind spending this much on a toaster, I think it really is worth purchasing. The “Bit More” feature is actually handy, and despite its mostly meaningless shortcomings, this is a very solid toaster. But hey, I’m not a toaster aficionado.
Good-looking, zippy toaster with a high-dollar name that worked wonderfully for 14 days. Sadly, the elements went completely wonky two weeks after arrival. The outside elements stopped working completely on any setting. Called Breville, they asked me to use a different outlet (because, obviously, I was out of my mind) and had the same results. To their credit, Breville sent me a shipping label to return the toaster and as soon as they got a report from UPS that it was on the way, they shipped a new one to me. This super sleek return process tells me they must have to do this quite often. All this equals a big pain in the patootie as I have now been without a working toaster for a week.
Will report back after I've taken toaster #2 on a test run. But for now, buy one of these toasters at your own risk. As soon as you get it, look for the batch # stamped into the plastic on the bottom. If it is 1509, good luck to you. IF it works, it is great!
