Breville Die-Cast 2-Slice Silver Smart Toaster, Model BTA820XL

Intelligent one-touch auto lowering toaster

Key Features:

  • Die-cast construction
    Die-cast construction molds molten metals together at intense temperatures. The result is durability and more refined finish.
  • LED countdown
    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 and beeps when the cycle is complete.
  • Intelligent auto controls
    An internal smart chip lowers the 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.
  • Auto “Lift and Look™”
    This innovative 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 anytime.

Features:

  • Motorized lever that gradually lowers the toast and steadily raises the toast when the cycle is complete
  • Innovative "Lift and Look" feature that raises and lowers the toast mid-cycle to monitor the browning without having to cancel or re-set the cycle
  • "A bit more" function allows the user to lower the bread carriage for additional toasting time, when only a short time is needed
  • "Bagel" button activates additional heat to the center heating elements to toast the inner side of the cut bagel, whilst warming the outside of the bagel
  • LED toasting progress indicator
  • 5 variable-browning settings
  • Slide out crumb tray

Approximate Dimensions:

  • Depth: 11"
  • Height: 7.75"
  • Width: 6.75"

Approximate Weight:

Gave one of these toasters to my sister for Christmas. Talked to her on the phone on Christmas morning. Her first comment she was embarrassed at being so excited about a toaster, but seeing as her husband, son and daughter-in-law were in the kitchen playing with it maybe she shouldn't be. A week after Christmas she was still talking about it. Her favorite feature: the "little bit more" button. Two slices can be started at her prefered level of "doneness", when the toast pops up, one slice is removed and at the touch of a button, the second sliced is finished slightly darker for her husband. Since my sister was so impressed, I ordered one for myself. Have used it for a little over a week. My favorite feature is the bagel setting. This is a feature new to me, but one that I would certainly recommed looking for when shopping for a new toaster. Its great for English muffins, one side toasted sandwich bread as well as bagels. The only change I would make would be to lengthen the slots for oversized deli-bread slices. The Breville is a little better in this regard than my old toaster, but still not quite enough for really oversized slices. The only reason I gave it a four instead of a five. I don't think any of the manufacturers have quite caught up with this, as it seems to be a shortcoming with all the toasters I looked at. The only other objection is that at the price you would think it could have been made somewhere other than China. Seems solid and well made though.One additional comment about Abt. Never heard of them until about a year ago. Have made four purchases since, the first being a mirco-wave convection oven. On that occasion I had a product information question which was answered by someone who actually seemed to know what she was talking about. Shipping has been prompt. Prices seem very competiative as well. Based on my experience, albeit limited, I would give them Five stars.

Surprisingly short life

This toaster only lasted us a little over one year. It does a nice job of toasting but didn't hold up. Very disappointing.

    This toaster is awesome. Gather your friends around so they can watch the bread silently glide into the slots, only to emerge beautifully toasted a minute or so later.

        Comments about Breville Die-Cast 2-Slice Silver Smart Toaster:

        This is the best toaster I've ever owned. I love the way the coils seem to "wrap around" whatever you are toasting. This eliminates crumbs while toasting a slice of banana bread, etc. It's also great for toasting frozen items; they come out perfect every time. Another feature I like are the controls; all automatic.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The toaster was delivered promptly and packed very well to avoid damage.

        Comments about Breville Die-Cast 2-Slice Silver Smart Toaster:

        This is a better then average toaster, but not 5 star perfect in my opinion. I find that the heating isn't always even & it doesn't always function the way that I would hope for. That said, it is better then a lot of other toasters out there.

            Compact so takes little counter space. The exterior does not get hot and the design of the plug is fantastic. Wish all plugs are designed the same. Toast is even & we are happy with the product.

                    This is a very neat toaster. All the buttons on top make the toaster do things as no other toaster I have ever looked at or owned. My problem was I expected the ubit to make toast that was nearly the same color on both sides. When the toast was the brown I like on one side, the other was black. It was unacceptable and I returned it. I must add-- customer service was fantastic in helping me get another model toaster.

                        This toaster makes good toast once you figure out the darkness settings depending upon the type of bread. A nice feature is the bit more button and the bagel and defrost work well too.
