  1. Have you checked your renters insurance policy to see if you can be reimbursed for the cost of the new oven? Considering it was a power surge, it may be covered. Worth looking into.

  2. Looks like a nice appliance but how is it different than a toaster oven? It looks like it has more settings but is there something else besides the convection function? I have a toaster oven that still works well but I'd like to get rid of my microwave and replace it with another oven as my wall oven is not very big and for holidays I always have more things to bake than I have oven space. Wonder if the Breville would be a good solution.

    Brenda, are you feeling any better? Hope you are and will continue to. Take care.

  3. I have the same oven. Have had it about a year and love it. The only time I turn on my regular oven is when I am using full-sized cookie sheets, extra large baking dishes, or when Tim makes a frozen pizza. I got mine on amazon. At the time, it was cheaper than at Williams-Sonoma.

  4. I am definitely going to look into these when my current toaster oven dies some day. I was tempted during a recent sale to buy one but I held out since my toaster oven is still fine. Good thing I did because I just had to replace my microwave, as a bag of popcorn went on fire and fried it! It's always something, isn't it?

  5. I read & enjoy your blog everyday. I'm just a blog reader, not a writer. I've wanted to ask, how much heat the outside of the Breville generates. My kitchen is small & enclosed. Thank you for any info. Shirley

    If the apartment complex will allow you to you can have an outlet wired and a little red button will spring when power goes out. I believe that will save anything you have plugged into that outlet when the power goes out/comes back on. I don't think this costs to much. Thank you for telling us about the wonderful new Breville Smart Oven.

    1. Isn't it a code violation not to have GFCI outlets in kitchens and bathrooms? If the apartment complex won't allow it, maybe consider buying a very good quality surge protector, remembering those too will also eventually need to be replaced. They wear out, simply by doing what they're designed to do. The replacement Breville looks awesome!
