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.

You may notice that they is no manual levelers like you normally would find. Don’t worry they thought of everything. The lift and look feature is genius.
Unlike traditional toasters you don’t have to cancel the cycle to see if it is just right. When your toast is done but you want it a little darker just push the “bit more” button.
You also have left and right controls so you can use both sides on different settings.
I created a video review of this toaster so, If you want to see this toaster in action search YouTube for ”The Best 4 Slice Toaster - Toast Has Never Tasted So Good!”
High quality is certainly applicable to the BTA840-XL, a handsome chrome 4-slice toaster with all the bells and whistles you could possibly want. At about $175, it sure ain't cheap, but I'm confident I won't be shopping for another toaster anytime soon. Though not small, the BTA840XL is more compact than it looks in photos, and it does an admirable job of producing nicely browned nicely warmed toast. It features 4 slots with dual controls: You set the desired degree of toasting on a slide on the bottom front and press the red start button. The toast is lowered automatically, and the toasting counts down with easily-read LED status bars above the sliders. When done, the toast automatically lifts for retrieval and beeps to let you know you're done. Need a bit more toasting? Press the "A Bit More" button and the toast goes back down for a little more time. Unsure if it's getting too done? Press the "Lift and Look" and the toast lifts up for you to assess without cancelling the original setting. There are also controls for Bagels and for Frozen products.
So far, I'll give the Breville BTA840XL a solid A. Positive features:
-- Handsome design
-- Heavy and solidly made; nothing cheap about this toaster
-- Easy-to-use controls
-- Delivers nicely browned toast quickly and efficiently
-- Toast is nice and warm; toaster stays completely cool to the touch
-- "A Bit More" and "Lift and Look" features are quite useful
Less than Positive Features:
-- Slots are not quite long/deep enough to take "long" slices (such as Italian bread/panini); that said, the slots seem to do better than most with this kind of bread, and the "A Bit More" feature allows you to flip the end of the toast and get the whole slice nicely toasted
-- Pricey for a toaster
Since I have never been disappointed with a Breville product before, I decided to return this toaster as defective. Since the seller was not Amazon, the seller expects me to pay return shipping for a defective product. This is totally unacceptable, and I have reported this situation to Amazon. I have decided that I will give Breville another chance on this toaster, and will update this review if my experience with this product improves.The seller did finally email me a return shipping label with the help of Amazon customer service.
I have increased my star rating from 1 star to 5 as we now really like this toaster. Just in case we still didn't like it, I ordered it from Bed Bath and Beyond so that the return would be easier. They don't have the 30 day limitation on returns and we have a local store. When we first got this toaster, I did toasting with no bread a couple of times to burn off anything that might be on the elements. This was recommended in the instructions. During this process, I noticed that all of the elements did not heat as much as the other side on one side of each slot. Many more heated than with the previous returned toaster, but still not all of them. Having had problems with the first toaster, I called Breville customer service the next day. They told me that the toaster was designed to make "restaurant style" toast. One side of each slice is not toasted as much as the other side so that toppings can be put onto the softer side, and the other side is crisper. The explanation sounded good, but I wasn't sure that I would like "restaurant style" toast. Our first test of the toaster was bagels. I set the toaster at level 5, pressed bagel and the toast. Our old toaster had to be set at the highest level to get anything browned. Before the toasting cycle finished, I checked the bagel and it was almost burned. The next bagel I set the toaster to level 3, and the toasting was perfect. The inside of the bagel was golden brown, and the outside was still soft. Perfect!!
The ultimate test was toasting homemade bread, All of our bread is homemade and is primarily made from fresh milled whole grain flour. This type of bread is heavier than store bought bread, and takes much longer to toast. I also freeze loaves after slicing, and we take slices out as needed. For 100% frozen whole wheat bread, I set the toaster at level 5, pressed the frozen button, and then toast, and the bread went down to toast automatically.The bread was beautifully, evenly toasted.
A couple of things that should be noted. Although the outside of the toaster gets only warm, it does give off a lot of heat from the top. I initially had it in a space on the counter that was under a cabinet. The underside of the cabinet got really hot - too hot to touch. I also mentioned this to Breville customer service, and was told that it should not be placed under a cabinet. I love and would recommend this toaster, but this may be a point to consider if you are considering purchasing it.
