    Display stopped working in less than 30 days. Digital display is not showing anything. This means you can't use it at all. At this price it should have been more durable.

    Great for a single person who doesn't need to cook large family meals. No need to heat up the large oven and waste gas and heat up the whole kitchen just to cook a frozen pizza. I love the air fry feature. I wish it would come with the bamboo cutting board top since it gets too hot to place items on top - and in a small kitchen I can't afford to lose any counter space. The cutting board is sold separately but very pricey at about $45.

    I prefer this over my built in oven in my apartment. Some things cook a few minutes quicker. I live alone and use the warm function to heat food instead of a microwave. It's compact enough that you can bring it to a potluck to freshly bake on the spot. Price is a bit steep.

    There are only two reason for not giving it five star. One, the door had a small dent, which had to happen at the factory. I didn't noticed it until after removing all the packaging and following all the cleaning instructions. It was too much of pain return. Two, the price is too high because of the manufacture's control on the selling price.

    This oven is amazing, it does just what it says. Stand alone oven is great for so many needs. My only negative is it is pricey but you are buying quality. and it gets HOT, be careful where you place it. Please don't let those deter you. it is worth it!

    With this toaster oven I rarely use the full sized oven. Did a 13 lb turkey and it came out amazing with crispy skin. Pizza, toast, broil steaks, bake cakes and cookies, roast cauliflower. Haven't found much I can't do in it. The super convection mode saves a lot of cooking time. I had bought an air fryer and returned it because it couldn't do enough food at once to make it worth the time & counter space. This allows me to air fry a lot of food at one. Put some in the wire basket and some on the broiler rack/pan below the basket, to prevent dripping on the bottom. Although stuff on the broiler rack/pan doesn't cook as quick as stuff in the wire basket. Little larger size allows use of more pans, not just the couple special sized ones most come with.

    So it looks like a confusing toaster oven. A very expensive confusing toaster oven. Then you take it home, and start using it. Only then do you understand how AWESOME this thing is. Toaster oven? Makes toast better than my old toaster oven, or toaster for that matter. Bake? Small things you no longer need to use your big oven for. Airfryer? You don't need to buy one of those, this thing does that as well, and has more capacity than most airfryers. It's one of those rare multi-purpose devices that actually does things well.

    A nice kitchen addition. Expensive, but has worked as advertised thus far, but we have not used all the settings yet. Preheat takes a little longer than my regular oven surprisingly - one would think it would be faster, but to preheat to 400F it takes a full 15 minutes. Roast works great - nice brown, crispy skin on a pair of Cornish game hens. Pizza setting works nice and took less time than the instructions said. Toast function works well, but takes longer than a counter top toaster - about 5 minutes for med-dark toast. Looking forward to using the air-fry setting on some french fries in the near future. Be careful when setting up - the back of the unit gets blisteringly hot and the power cord tends to want to fall back against it so it could melt - tuck the cord out of the way and move to appliance at least 3 inches from the wall. All in all, if you can afford it, it is a good item, well made, and works as advertised. I'll report back when the other settings are used.

    I went through 3 other toaster ovens within a month until I decided to splurge on the Breville Smart Oven Air. This stylish appliance has all the features I wanted and much more. We use it every day for toast, but also have made air fries and many other incredible foods. From toast to roast this oven does a great job of making meals easy to do. There is only one thing that could be better and that is the preheating speed. It seems to take longer than a normal oven. This does not bother me because the food will cook faster anyway. I was wanting to bake a dessert and the instructions said it would take 45 minutes. I needed to leave in 30 minutes so I put it on super convection. It cooked in 15 minutes and came out perfectly. Although, I think that this toaster plus was quite expensive, I would buy it again if needed. I also would recommend purchasing the bamboo cutting/cutting board. I never liked when people put things on top of the toaster while it was cooking, but boys will be boys and this accessory allows for placing items on the board without touching the toaster oven top.
