Excerpt: Loved the features and look of this toaster. For the first year, it worked well and toasted evenly. Just out of the one year warranty, the unit failed. Trying to receive help from Breville is completely useless. This product is too expensive to justify such a quick trip to the garbage can after infrequent use.
Summary: I love Breville products. Ebay offers me the opportunity to get the biggest bang for my buck. This is a perfect case. I got exactly what I wanted - it works & looks great I got it at a very good price - thanks to Ebay.... Should I need a 2nd one.... I will do it all over again. And.... let my mouse do the walking......
Conclusion: "I ordered on line this toaster and literally had it plugged into my kitchen two days later. I researched toasters and was looking for the best, despite cost, and am pleased to report I am pleased with this product in every way. Came package to perfection and once plugged in, its functions were obvious. Very well defined and clear.
Excerpt: I rec'd this great toaster as a wedding gift and loved it at first. I never knew I'd love a toaster so much...and a reputable brand. Now it stopped working entirely. Really? I sure hope the store takes it back, very disappointing!
Summary: We've had this for about 3 weeks to replace our old toaster. Grabs bread and gently lowers and rises the toast, as opposed to the old one that shot the toast out on to the counter. Getting used to best light/dark settings. I like the "little bit more" button. We moved the placement on the counter because it gets hot on top. Didn't want it under the upper cabinets.
Excerpt: We have had this toaster since for a few years. The first one broke, the second one broke (both replaced by Breville without hesitation). I was in despair because I loved the toaster, but just knew it could happen again when we were just past the warranty.
Excerpt: Beautiful appliance, but does not toast evenly and often times gets stuck in the middle of toasting. The lights begin blinking and buttons don't work. I have to unplug and use a wooden spoon to get my item out. For the price, I am beyond disappointed.
Excerpt: I had been looking off and on for a toaster, but asked my husband to buy one at Christmas. We were at the Williams-Sonoma Georgia Outlet store in Dawsonville and happened to see this toaster. It was gorgeous and exactly what I wanted for our new home. Thought about it, then went back and made the purchase at a discounted price. Still pricey, but less than retail. I read some reviews which didn't do it justice, and was surprised that some people didn't like it.
