But, after owning it for just three weeks, all the lettering on the 'Start' button started flaking off, probably from light contact from fingernails as the button is pushed.
For $300, twice the cost of other brands of similar size, I'd expect the buttons to be nearly impervious to minor wear, especially after minimal use over 21 days.
At first glance, this is a microwave that looks like Apple designed it. But Apple wouldn't outfit a product with a button that deteriorates merely by touching it.
I've contacted Breville support and was offered warranty coverage. Instead, I'm returning it. If its primary button is of inferior quality, what else is? I'm not waiting to find out.
Breville, I expected better.
UPDATE: I have compared 'Start' buttons on Breville microwaves at two local stores that carry it. The buttons are entirely different. At one store, the button is smooth and feels like plastic, like the one on the microwave I had. At the other store, the button has ridges and feels metallic. The printing is buried in the ridges, and the button feels/looks like the Stop/Clear button. I expect the printing does not wear off the metallic version.
I'm updating my rating from 2 to 4 stars. It's an outstanding microwave. But be careful. If you buy one and you can't feel ridges when brushing your finger across the Start button, return it for another, if you're fond of the printing on the 'Start' button.
Last fall I bought the Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven and I really liked it (I still do). The Quick Touch microwave is styled very much like the Smart Oven, with a stainless steel front and knobs instead of lots of buttons. Breville's videos make much of the lack of buttons, but the extra buttons are just hiding behind the door. Instead of a now-standard touchpad to enter cooking times and power levels, there are two rotary knobs that do this. The advantage of the knobs is that you can change the settings on-the-fly while your food is cooking, which on other ovens would require stopping the cooking, re-entering the new settings and starting again. So that's goodness. But the knobs also collect grime and are more difficult to clean than the usual smooth-surface touchpad.
Like most microwaves nowadays, the Breville has a bunch of preprogrammed cook and reheat modes, where you select the food type and quantity. This is not unique to Breville. There is also the typical "sensor cook" and "sensor reheat", but the buttons for those are inside the door. The sensor modes did work very well in my tests. The hidden buttons also include dedicated buttons for popcorn (all the microwave popcorn makers say not to use popcorn buttons!), melt chocolate and soften butter.Read more ›
So I had hopes for this, being the similar concept to the toaster oven.
One thing I do like is that it has a volume option for the beep and alarm - high, medium, and low. Even my highest end LG range fan microwave unit doesn't have that.
It is surprisingly quiet, relatively speaking. Even quieter than my 1200w LG, which I had thought was a pretty silent unit.
Another quality I liked is that unlike every other microwave I've had, this one will automatically shut off the light if the door is left open. This is ideal for getting moisture to evaporate after you've cooked, without having the bulb burn the whole time. I don't know how many times with other microwaves, I've left it opened to dry it out, and then four hours later I go into the kitchen and see it open and the light burning, and thump myself on the forehead since I forgot it was even still open. And this is an important thing on this unit, since I've found that moisture builds up a lot in this one. There seems to be a lack of air movement compared to other microwaves I've used. So anything I cook, there's always a film of water, or beaded water running down the sides and inside of the door. I had thought my LG was getting bad that way, but it seems like nothing compared to the moisture that collects in this one. I have nothing anywhere near the fan outlet, so it's not a matter of blocking the airflow or impeding it in any way.Read more ›
