The Evolution of My Toaster Oven Life…and a ROCKIN’ Giveaway.

This giveaway is now closed, thank you!

I didn’t grow up with a toaster oven. So…when Nate and I were engaged and registering for our wedding and he insisted on adding a toaster oven to our registry, I just didn’t get it. Thankfully Nate added it to the list anyway and we ended up receiving this beauty.

Let me introduce you to ‘the little toaster oven that could.’ For more than 11 years it’s been sitting on our counter toasting toast and reheating all kinds of food…pizza, muffins, baked french toast, and more. To this day I’m grateful Nate was such a smartie pants. I simply couldn’t live without a toaster oven now!

While ‘the little toaster oven that could’ has been loyal and hardworking, it’s on its last legs. Half of the time I have to bang it on the wall to get it going. So, while I felt somewhat disloyal to our little friend, I started thinking about getting a new toaster oven.

Right as I started contemplating a new toaster oven, Breville contacted me about their Smart Oven. As a great appreciator of toaster ovens, as soon as I started reading about this lovely Smart Oven, I was enamored. And then I said, “YES, please, I will happily take an oven off your hands!” It arrived a few weeks ago and I must say I had good reason to be excited about its arrival.

First off, just look at it.

But since good looks aren’t everything, here are some of the other reasons I’m liking this oven. There are magnets in the door that automatically pull the tray out – and it works like a charm! SO much better than my old toaster oven, which had little hooks that pulled the tray out. There’s about a billion different settings – roast, toast, bake, convection, pizza, and I’m sure I’m missing something since that’s definitely not a billion. So far we’ve made toast (6 pieces at once!) and lots and lots of cookies. Oh, and some really yummy garlic bread. The convection cooks pretty evenly (better than my regular oven, actually) and the preheat time is way shorter than my big oven. Also, I love how in toast mode if I open the door, the oven stays on. It’s the little things that make me happy. πŸ˜‰ I’ve yet to try roasting meat and cooking pizza, but you can be sure I will!

The Smart Oven is definitely bigger than my old toaster oven. But in the end it’s really not taking up that much extra space in my kitchen. And it’s worth having the extra capacity inside the oven. It does sort of seem like toast takes longer to cook than in my old toaster…but it toasts really evenly AND I kind of think some of it might be mental. On my old oven, I would hit toast and just wait for the ding. On the Smart Oven, there’s a timer. I don’t know, when you actually KNOW how long something is taking, I think sometimes that makes it seem longer.

Bottom line – I’m so glad I have this Smart Oven. It’s great! Thank you, Breville!

You know I’m always thinking of you, right? Not only did I get an oven for myself, but Breville is giving one away! One of you lucky, randomly-selected commenters will receive your very own Smart Oven (retail $249.99). Just like always, simply leave a comment on this post and you’re entered to win!

  2. 2

    that toaster looks awesome! would love to win one. thanks!

  3. 3

    Huh, I was just looking at one of these at Williams-Sonoma.

  4. 4

    Toaster ovens are the most under-appreciated appliance in the kitchen. I LOVE a good toaster oven but I have to say the Breville looks like an oven you’d expect to see stuck in the wall. Most impressive.

  5. 5

    I’ve been pondering a toaster oven for a while now but can’t decide-this sure looks awesome! Plus the extra oven type space would be awesome on holidays.

  6. I would so LOOOOOVE this!!!! I can never have enough kitchen appliances…never πŸ™‚

  7. 7

    We don’t have a toaster oven and i would sure love one!

    That’s a great looking toaster oven!

  10. I need this super toaster for the Summer, when it’s too hot to turn on the big oven.

  11. 11

    My grandmother had a toaster oven when I was growing up and I have the fondest memories of the best toast in the world! Would love to win this!

  12. 12

    Oh man, that looks amazing! I’m absolutely addicted to my toaster oven (which sadly is also on it’s last legs).

  13. 13

    I too grew up without a toaster oven and have often wondered at the appeal. Your post makes me really want this one!

  14. 14

    This looks super swanky. It would look even more swanky on my kitchen counter.

  15. The best pizzas I’ve ever had have been made in one of these! I would Love to win this. Thank you for hosting this awesome give-away!!

  16. 16

    I have just the place for this wonderful oven. How did you know I needed one?

  17. 17

    Oh, awesome! I would LOVE to win this…we’ve never had a very good toaster oven. Our first one was a freecycle find, and it was old and the door was permanently grease-stained. We upgraded recently, but you have to flip the toast periodically unless you want soggy toast. So, um, I guess it wasn’t much of an upgrade. πŸ˜‰

    I’ve never had a toaster oven. Now that it is only me (kids finally left home), I’ve been think a toaster oven is a better option for just one. Don’t need to always heating up the big oven.

  19. 19
    Amber L

    We’ve never been toaster oven people, but now I might be convinced!

  20. What a classy looking machine! Definitely a 2011 device! Compare it to your 1995 toaster oven and you are sold!

  21. I’ve never had one, but I’ve always loved using them at friends’ and families’ homes.

  22. We’ve had a current toaster for less than a year and little arm doesn’t stay down to toast unless you finesse it πŸ™ This would be AWESOME!

  23. 23

    That looks SUPER! I think I need it now πŸ™‚

  24. 24

    That toaster looks amazing. I’d love one.

  25. 25

    I was just about to add this to our wedding registry! We are definitely in need of a good toaster oven:)

  26. 26

    I’m shocked that your little old oven lasted 11 years! We had something similar and we’ve had to replace it a few years ago. AND I can’t how clean yours look. I didn’t grow up with either and we bought ours due to my husband. He cannot live without one!

  27. 27

    Considering I just accidentally set my toaster on fire (not my fault!), I am in desperate need of a new one! Oh please, random number generator, pick me!

  28. 28

    What a gorgeous toaster oven…who knew? The microwave will never replace the toaster oven, we use ours constantly!

  29. 29

    I would love a chance to win – awesome toaster oven!

  30. Oh my goodness, Jane! I’m in love with it…sad, I know. I have a very similar toaster oven to your old one, and it’s going on 10 years. My husband, like yours, insisted on a toaster oven on our wedding registry. We use it everyday and I know I would put that Smart Oven to work immediately! Pick me please!!


  31. I’ve never had a toaster oven. I’m crossing my fingers!

  32. This is a super duper giveaway. This would be so perfect in my kitchen!

  33. This toaster oven would be great addition to my kitchen! πŸ™‚

  34. 35

    Awesome! My mom swears by her toaster oven but I’ve never pulled the trigger. I’ve always been curious though! An I LOVE Breville products!! Pick me! Pick me! πŸ™‚

  35. 36


  36. I just got a Breville juicer and am LOVING it. I’ll be a Breville cheerleader anytime. I mean look at that thing!

  37. 38

    While I’m not sure there’s room in my kitchen for this device, it would be nice to have an oven to use for smaller items and reheating leftovers instead of having to heat up the oven all the time.

  38. 39
    Karen T

    I use my basic toaster oven now. But OH THE TOASTING I WOULD DO WITH THAT BEAUTIFUL SPECIMIN! Like I want to write a song about how beautiful it is and would be on my countertop!

  39. 40

    I’ve been having to live a life with only a toaster! It’s a sad state of affairs. πŸ™

    I would looooooooooooooooooooooooove this in my kitchen!

  40. 41
    Nancy from Mass

    I have been looking around for a toaster oven for a little while now…Would I love to win this one!

    Please pick me, random generator, please?!

  41. 42

    Can you believe I’ve never had a toaster oven? I might be a toaster oven convert. πŸ™‚

  42. 43

    this is my toaster over comment.

  43. 45

    I have TOTALLY been wanting to try out a toaster oven, and the Breville one looks the best!

    Tammy Blais

    Oh Jane! I am 53 years old and have been married for 33 years and I have never had a toaster oven in my life! I stayed with a friend a couple of weeks ago and she has a toaster oven and I used it for a whole week. I had no idea what I was missing!! I would so LOVE and appreciate this beautiful Smart Oven from Breville if I was lucky enough to win it! Thanks!!

  46. 48
    Kathy J.

    I have not yet owned a toaster oven, but this little beauty would make me a believer! Thank you – great giveaway!

  47. 49

    oh man – the rolls royce of toaster ovens. i feel like i shouldn’t even call it a toaster oven! either way, what a beautiful appliance. thanks for the contest!

  48. 50

    My son loves his cheese melted sandwiches under the broiler. I just said yesterday that if I had a toaster oven I wouldn’t have to heat the big oven and waste all that energy.

  49. 51

    Wow!!!! I have been eyeing toaster ovens for awhile. I didn’t grown up with one either. While it’s difficult to give up the counter space, I’m thinking it would be put to great use!

  50. Oh man. The toaster of all toasters! *Ahhhh…*

  51. 53

    That is one sexy toaster.

  52. 54

    Wow. Count me in!

  53. 55

    Could not live without my toaster oven either! And this one looks awesome πŸ™‚

  54. 56
    Chaka Campbell

    I wish I had a toaster oven like this!!!! I love baking and this would make the early morning food prep so much easier!!! LOVE!

  55. 57

    We’ve mastered using our toaster oven for toast, warming up Chris’ breads and leftovers. but I’ve not ventured on to cookies yet. sounds like a perfect way to get the baking hankering out without having to heat up the oven (and the house) in the summer!

  56. 58

    Got this for my ex. Miss it lots! Would love to get another one.

  57. 59

    I love toaster ovens! The one I have right now is a struggling little $20 oven. I love it, but you an totally tell it is cheap.

  58. 60

    Since my kitchen oven had the clock ripped out of it when it shorted, a broken temperature dial, and rust inside of it I do believe I need this wonderful little gem! It looks so high tech and fabulous!

  59. 61

    Does this mean I can stop having those nasty toast crumbs every time I put my toaster away? πŸ™‚

  60. 62
    Nikki S

    I miss my old toaster oven, this one would be a lovely replacement.

  61. 63
    Theresa Bish

    I didn’t grow up with a toaster oven either … Just had to buy my THIRD one in 10 years! With 3 busy teenage daughters, we use ours’ a LOT … not liking the new one much ~ the knob is awkward and “tight” … but, I still could not live without one! Yours’ is beautiful!!! =)

  62. 64

    I feel like an energy hog whenever I turn on my oven, but the microwave just doesn’t cut it for most foods. This would be perfect!

  63. 65

    My husband was like you and never had a toaster oven. He calls it the mysterious “Toast Roven” and pretends he doesn’t know how to use it. We got ours 10 years ago when I melted a loaf of bread on my brother-in-laws toaster oven. He didn’t like the melted plastic mark it left so he gave it to me! I love toaster ovens!

  64. 66
    pam baumer

    This would be amazing!!!!!

  65. 67

    i’ve never had a toaster oven, but people who have them LOVE them. I’d love to try it out.

  66. 68

    Perfect timing! I was just thinking I need a new toaster oven that has more capacity. Your review has me convinced!

  67. 69
    Lindsey P

    My toaster oven is just about to croak… would love this one!

    Camilla Nelson

    I have never had a toaster oven in my life.. but after your discriptions i think I NEED one. Specifically this one since its free and all πŸ™‚

  70. 72

    My toaster oven just died and I’ve been so sad as I use it all the time! This one looks AMAZING!

  71. 73

    Wow! That looks amazing. I would LOVE a toaster oven. I don’t dare turn on our regular oven in our small apartment (w/o A/C) during the summer because it literally heats up the whole house! I’ve been thinking the solution is to get a toaster oven.

  72. 74
    Laura D

    Used to have a toaster oven, but haven’t had one in a few years. I would love to have one again now that we have the counter space for it.

  73. 75

    I have never had a toaster oven, and to be honest I thought they were old fashioned and nobody used them anymore. I obviously don’t know what I am talking about!! Looks like perfection to me!

  74. 76

    I’ve never had a toaster oven! Would love to give it a try though!

  75. 77
    Katie B

    WEll, I need to get myself a toaster oven now! Winning this would would be great.

  76. 78

    This is a great looking oven. I had an old Black and Decker toster oven I would the handle off the door I used it so much … my how they have changed!


  77. I’ve never had a toaster oven so this would be great to try

  78. 80
    Gina Wilson

    Looks like a great oven. Thanks for the opportunity! I didn’t have a toaster oven growing up either. πŸ™‚

  79. 81

    That is a good-looking toaster oven! I’m a fan of them as well.

  80. 82

    My husband is always wishing we had a toaster oven. He would be SO excited if we won this! Thanks for the giveaway!

  81. 83

    I didn’t grow up with one either! I have since learned there one million different things it can do. I would be ecstatic to win this one! It looks awesome. Thanks for the chance to win it!!

  82. 84

    That looks great!

  83. 86

    We have loved having ours — now on at least #3. Would love to have a heavy duty, mixed use like this beauty.

  84. 87

    I have a little extra counter space that would be perfect for this oven!

  85. 88

    I am being optimistic and finding a spot in my kitchen for this baby!!! =)

  86. 89

    This sounds amazing…

  87. 90

    I never even thought about a toaster oven (don’t they just make toast? I was so naive!) until recently, when magazines and blogs and friends have raved about how wonderful they are. This one is so much nicer than my real oven, which is older than I am and makes up its own temperature every time I use it. Thanks for this giveaway!

  88. 91

    My junky toaster oven just kicked the bucket a few months ago. Please help!

  89. 92

    This looks great!! You had me convinced at garlic bread mmmm…

  90. 93

    Oooh! Such a pretty oven! That would be perfect for baking in the summer too! I don’t have air conditioning.

  91. 94

    I use my toaster oven almost every day. This looks awesome!

  100. Is it possible to get dewy-eyed over a toaster oven? This I have achieved!!

  101. 104

    We use a toaster oven at work all the time, but don’t have one at work. This one looks super cool!

  102. 105

    Would love to replace my ancient one!

  103. 106

    Sign me up – that looks great!!

  104. 107
    Missy Martineau

    love it, want it!

  105. 108

    I’ve always wanted a toaster oven! Reheating pizza in the microwave never has good results!

  106. 109

    This would be the perfect addition to our kitchen!!

  107. I NEED a new toaster oven! Mine is too small and not doing as good as it used to when it comes to toasting and heating! The only thing it does well is look just like it did 8 years ago when I got it.

  108. 111

    Haven’t had a toaster oven since college, but have heard great things about this one. Plus, it sure is pretty!

  109. 112

    I can not live with out my toaster over! LOVE them! thanks for the giveaway!

  110. 113

    What a beautiful toaster over! I love mine, but it is old and not doing so well! I would love to win!

  111. 114

    This has been on my wish list for a long time!

  117. 120

    I’ve never had a toaster over, but I’m starting to think it might be worth getting.

  118. 121

    Looks good! I wouldn’t mind trying one out πŸ™‚

  119. 122

    my friend has this and i salivate with jealousy every time o go to her house. i love the versatility! while i would miss my little toaster oven, if it were replaced by the convection oven, i am sure the pain would recede very quickly.

  120. 123

    I have never owned a toaster oven, but would sure love to figure out what they can do!

  121. 124
    Anne L

    I would love to win this! I have a Breville toaster and I absolutely love it!

  122. 125

    Like you I also received my toaster oven as a wedding gift…22 years ago! Does it look 22 years old..YES! Would I love a new toaster oven…YES!YES! =) I would love to use the new technolgy!

  123. 126

    This would look so nice in our new kitchen! Maybe a reward for being kitchen-less for more than four months! πŸ™‚

  124. 127

    I want to try! If it makes my life easier, I’m a fan!

  125. 128

    I have never owned a toaster oven and think it would be fantastic to see what it’s all about. Thanks!

  126. 129

    I haven’t replaced my last toaster oven, but I bought my first one 10 years ago while living in an upstairs apartment of a mortuary. There was no a/c, just a pathetic swamp cooler thing, and heating up the big oven wasn’t an option. I have been through 2 toaster ovens, and I LOVE them. I think I am loving this fancier upgraded version!

  127. 130

    My husband didn’t “get” the toaster oven thing when I insisted, either! Now he does.

  128. 131
    Kassie b

    Wow. That is an impressive toaster oven! I love that it stays on when you open the door! That could have been really useful this last week, while my broiler was not working.

  129. 132

    Wow! What a nice toaster oven!

  130. 133

    I would love one!

  131. 134

    Toaster ovens are wonderful for whipping up a small batch of cookies!

  132. 135

    I love my thrift store bought toaster oven , but I’d happily replace it with that beautiful Breville. My oh my!

  133. 136

    I have been thinking about getting a toaster oven for awhile, I didn’t grow up with one either. This one looks awesome!

  134. 137

    My big oven is an AB Battlecreek beauty from about 1920. She is a gorgeous girl, but high maintenance and very moody. SHE decides the temperature at which items will be cooked, and she doesn’t like baked goods – burned edges and raw middles. My biggest beef, however, is the way she heats up the entire house in the summer. I think this sexy little toaster oven would be a perfect companion for her!!!!

  135. 138

    I have NEVER owned a toaster over and would really love to. Crossing my fingers for sure!

  136. 139
    Jenny Rose

    I want! I want!

    Toaster ovens really have come a long way! Really great when you’re cooking for one and/or want to re-crisp something.

  138. 141

    This is awesome- I have been drooling over the commercials for it!

  139. 142

    This is beautiful! I’d love to win one!

  141. 144

    I also did not grow up with a toaster oven, but my siblings have adopted this practice and swear by them….I’m ready to join them! Good Luck everyone!

  142. 145

    So beautiful! I want one.

  143. 146

    Awesome! Love toaster ovens!

  144. 147

    Oooooooohhhh, I’ve never had a toaster oven either. My best friend’s mom had one when I was growing up and I always thought it was so fancy. πŸ˜‰

  145. 148

    I have never owned a toaster oven.. but I love the idea of it. Plus, this seems like so much more than just toast.
    πŸ™‚ I could definitely make room it in my kitchen.

  146. 149

    I’m panning my wedding registry in the next few months. A toaster will definitely be on the list. πŸ™‚

  147. 150

    What a great little oven…I’d LOVE to win this!

  148. 151

    Gosh, I would love one of those! I’ve never even had a plain toaster before!

  149. 152

    I think this is the most beautiful appliance I’ve ever seen ;_;

  150. 153
    Erin Garner

    I need to have that toaster oven!! I deseperately need a new one! Please pick me.

  156. 159

    My mom convinced me to get one years ago. I love it too. Our toaster is on it’s last leg too. I would be very thankful for an upgrade, and I know my mom would be jealous. πŸ˜‰

  157. 160

    I am so on the toaster oven fan train! Would love this great product!

  158. 161

    I have been shopping for one! Mine also is on its last leg – we have to shove scissors in the gear to make it stay on… and that just can’t be safe!

  159. 162

    THIS is my witty comment that everyone will see when I win…? πŸ™‚
    I would LOVE to find out what life in the kitchen would be like with a toaster oven! Here’s hoping!

  160. 163

    I would love this! I’ve never had a toaster over but would love to try it!

  161. 164
    Rachel J

    Love using my toaster oven- less time then oven and turns out better then using the microwave. Still using my 9 1/2 year old model with the hooks that never really do their job. Love seeing others do not think it is a waste of space- think I would build a special space for one if I ever design my own kitchen! Thanks for the chance to win a top of the line model!!

  162. 165

    This looks fantastic!

  163. 166

    I had lunch with a 90 year old friend who pointed to a really really old microwave that she says she has never once used. She sent her husband to get her a toaster oven and he came home with the microwave. She said she had no interest in it and let it sit all these years in silent protest for having not gotten her toaster oven. I’d love to have one as nice as this!

  164. 167

    Your comments convinced me that I need one of these!

  165. 168

    Mmmmm….I’m dreaming of open-faced cheese sandwiches…..

  166. 169

    Oh. My. Goodness. I. Want. This. Oven.

  167. 170

    I’ve owned the Smart Oven for almost 2 years now and I don’t go a day without using it. Like you said, it is much better looking than other toaster ovens and it is much bigger without taking up any extra counter space. It heats up so quickly. I have used it to make toast, pot pies, cookies, cakes, warming up everything as I dislike microwaves. I even made a roast chicken in there once when my regular oven broke. I had my kitchen completely redone a year ago but insisted that the Smart Oven stay on the counter. That’s how much I love it!

    Still I would love to win another one!

  168. 171

    WOW!! Awesome, awesome giveaway!!!

  169. 172

    This is amazing!!! Just what we need around here. I so hope I win this!!!

  170. 173

    I would love to have this oven!! With two teenage boys – I know they would help me make good use of it!

  171. 174

    I would love this toaster oven. I don’t have one and I’m sure it would come in handy!

  172. 175

    FINGERS CROSSED….oh, the things i could do with this beautiful toaster! : )

    Oh, how I can ‘one up’ this story πŸ™‚ My toaster oven belonged to my grandmother and I inherited it. I think it was made in the early 80’s… my husband hates it, but it still works quite well actually. So, this entry is for him. I’m a little sentimental and not sure I could just toss my grandma’s aside, but winning this sure would help!

    Linda Olore

    I’ve never owned a toaster oven. This would be so amazing!

  175. 178

    Imagine the toast possibilities!

  176. 179

    I’ve never owned one, but you make a good argument! (:

  177. 180

    Great giveaway :]

  178. 181

    BOY ! Could I use this! Is it smarter then the “person” (cough-cough)that lives in my home and she was toasting sesame seeds, went to a recipe blog, time got away from her AND I caught my toaster oven on fire πŸ™
    Can it YELL ((( HELLO !!! ))) step away from the computer and pay attention to me !!!”

  179. 182

    I’ve never had a toaster oven, like you, and they seem so exotic! I would adore to own this Smart Oven. Oh yes.

  180. 183

    I’ve never had a toaster oven myself, as I just thought they were another bulky kitchen gadget that took up counter space, but you make them sound very useful!

  181. 184

    This smart oven looks amazing! Thanks for the chance to win one!

  182. 185

    LOVE IT!

  183. 186

    This looks like a wonderful toaster oven!

  184. 187
    Carolyn M.

    Oh that would be SO nice for my apartment!! I’m really getting sick of dorm food. Lol.

  185. 188

    We also received one for our wedding that is about to go out. Would love to win this amazing toaster. We use ours even more now with two young kids. Thanks!

    Jessica Hansen

    As you know, Jane, my toaster oven is JUST AS OLD AS YOURS so I must need a new one too?! You gave me an extra one that you had nearly 11 years ago. πŸ™‚

    Ellen Grant

  188. 191

  189. 192

    I’m in love…mmmmmm!

  190. Whoa baby! This giveaway is just in time, our toaster oven only toasts on the lightest setting, or it will burn the bread in a minute flat…. We think the heat seating is off on the cook/temp. part too.. so its heading for the garage soon. Rest in Peace oldie but goodie toaster over…ready to win this beauty πŸ™‚

  191. 194
    Lena K.

    oooh, it looks nice. My husband grew up with one, but I didn’t. It makes sense to not heat up the huge oven for something small!

  192. 195
    Jen R.

    Wow that does sound like a pretty Smart Oven and my toaster oven is in it’s last leg!

  193. 196

    i just started following your bolg, it really helps me plan my meals. a giveaway just makes it even better!

  194. 197
    Liz Brown

    Wow! What perfect timing…my toaster just died..well at least half of it died. So I need a new one. This Breville oven sounds fabulous! Thanks for running the giveaway!

  195. 198

    Toaster ovens, also one thing I never had growing up, but now wish I did, thanks to my sister always talking about using her’s for “everything”!

  196. 199

    That looks so cool. I would love to win one.

  197. 200

    I would love a new one!!

  198. 201

    I got unnaturally excited reading about the features of this toaster oven. Mine is a hand-me-down from my mom circa 1991 & I could definitely use an upgrade!

  199. 202

    Uh, oh my goodness. Super cool giveaway! Thanks so much, Breville!

  200. 203

    I too share your love affair of toaster ovens! I’ve never heard of this Breville genius contraption and I would love to get to know it better. πŸ™‚

  201. Our toaster is falling apart, I’d love a new fancy one!

  202. 205

    looks fantastic, would love to win.

  203. 206
    Ann Marie

    I have coveted my mother’s Breville for over a year now… she loves it!

  204. 207

    Much better than my grandma’s toaster oven.

  205. 208

    Perfect timing. I have been thinking about getting a toaster-oven. Thanks for the review.

  206. 209

    I’ve never had a toaster oven, but since we don’t have a microwave right now I think this would come in handy! Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  207. 210

    Oh, I’d love a new toaster oven, especially a really really nice one like this. I’d like to see what kind of toasts it’d make because I LOVE toasts. Even though I LOVE toasts, it never occur to me to buy a really expensive toaster or toaster oven. But if I won this, I’d swoon!

  208. 211

    I’ve grew up with using a toaster oven and now that I’ve moved to college having no toaster oven of my own its kinda of not convenient. Would love to win one! πŸ™‚ Thanks for awesome giveaway!

  209. 212
    Ruth Jordan

    Have looked at toaster ovens for a while, but haven’t purchased one yet.

  210. 213

    That is a beautiful toaster! Enjoy! And thanks for a great give away!

  211. 214

    ahhhh! i would love this!!

  212. 215

    This toaster-oven is light years beyond my current! Thanks for the chance to win!

  213. 216

    My little white $20 toaster from Walmart just doesn’t cut it for my family of 5. My husband has been begging me to go out and buy a new one…I think I’ve found what I want in this toaster oven.

  214. 217

    Wow. Don’t tell my poor toaster oven it’s over between us…

  215. 218

    My 4 year old just asked why we don’t have”one of those things to cook cheese toast, you know one of those little ovens” this one would be amazing.

  216. 219

    the toaster oven is the most-used appliance in my kitchen!

  217. 220

    Wow, that is a beautiful appliance!

  218. 221

    We haven’t had a toaster oven for a few years and I miss it!

  219. 222

    That looks much nicer than the old one I have sitting on the counter! ;o)

  220. 223

    I grew up in a household that cooked nearly every day in a toaster oven! It is so handy I would love to have one. Like a grown up version of the easy bake oven…on steroids!

  221. 224

    WOW! A free toaster oven? How lucky are you. I bought my mom once for a mothers day or Christmas gift (I know, how kind of me…I was probably 17) and she still has it. I have never owned one on my own. We have a four slice toaster (and I thought that was fancy) I can not imagine only heating a small appliace to make some quick cookies or pizza. Oh how we would love to win one of these…..

  222. 225
    Kari C.

    How Cool! I would love to win one of these! Thanks!

  223. 226

    I was afraid of toaster ovens, but I could probably overcome my fear for that lovely appliance.

  224. 227
    Molly C

    I can imagine making a lot of cookies in that : )

  225. I’ve never had a toaster oven, but it looks like a great convenience appliance. Plus, I bet it uses less energy than preheating your conventional oven for smaller dishes.

  226. 229

    I would love to win!!

  227. 230

    AH! We ONLY have a toaster oven in our tiny apartment.. and it’s probably worse than your old one. This would be AMAZING!

  228. 231

    My husband has been wishing for a toaster oven – he would LOVE this one. Hope I win!

  229. 232

    Mmm. I have a friend whose oven was broken for almost a year before she replaced it because she cooked everything in a toaster oven.

  230. 233
    Casey B.

    This looks so awesome! I’m sure as a newlywed I’d use it a lot. Thanks!

  231. 234
    Lisa M

    Oh how I’d LOVE this toaster oven! Currently, I use my broiler to make toast! Lame! Please save me from further injury!

  232. 235

    oh, my mother in law has one of these and I have been so jealous!

  233. 236
    Hayley M

    My hubby has been wanting one of these forever. Great opportunity….maybe I can just win one!!!

  234. 237

    Sign me up – that thing looks awesome!!

  235. 238

    Oh Jane this is it! I’m over the Cambria cove one…didn’t need that stuff anyway (not that I need a toaster oven), but I’d like to have one!!!

    p.s even if I don’t win this one, I’m still following thisweekfordinner, lol

  236. 239

    Oh I’d love to cook up some easy meals in this oven! Awesome giveaway! Thanks!

  237. 240

    please pick me. Nice looking oven.

  238. 241

    Holy cow!! What an awesome gift!!

  239. 242
    Kirstjen Pratt

    We love using a toaster oven! In fact…we no longer have a microwave. I’d love to upgrade to the Breville!

  240. 243

    My in-laws gave us with a toaster oven (nothing like the Breville, more like your wedding gift) and I have grown to appreciate it. I love it in the summer, when I just don’t want to turn on the oven, I’m willing to do multiple batches of nuggets and tots in the toaster oven instead of heating up the house. This will be an awesome prize for anyone, thanks for hooking someone up!

  241. 244

    fingers crossed, eyes TIGHTLY shut, jumping up and down while whispering, “Please, please, please, please, please!”

  242. 245

    What a high tech looking toaster oven! I would love to have one!

  243. 246

    Toast me in! Or something clever involving the word toast haha!

  244. 247
    Donna B

    I have a twenty-five-year-old beauty like yours. It’d be great to replace it!

  245. Please! I would love a toaster oven. I’ve never had one, but my in-laws do and I think it’s awesome.

  246. 249

    My toaster oven is getting jealous that I’m lusting over the Smart Oven!

  247. 250

    wow, would LOVE to win this- we don’t have a toaster oven! πŸ™‚

  248. 251

    I introduced my husband (and subsequently my in-laws) to toaster overs–couldn’t live without it!

  249. 252

    I got a convection toaster oven several years ago with “employee recognition award $”. My husband was immediately in love. Although our double oven stove has both a toast option on the top stove and a convection oven on the bottom, it was his go-to appliance to cook lunches and breakfasts for him and our boys…. Sadly, it died this fall and, in the interest of saving money, I have convinced him to use the amazing oven that we have for all his cooking needs… This would make an AWESOME valentine’s day present for him (and reward him for being such an amazing daddy!)

  250. 253

    I would love, love, love a new toaster oven. The door won’t stay closed on the one I have now.

  251. 254
    Whitney S.

    I have never had a toaster oven! This makes me want to try one though! It looks quite cool too! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Janna M

    I love my toaster oven and would love to upgrade it.

  253. 256

    Would love to win this. Have never had a toaster oven but have heard wonderful things about them.

  254. 257

    I would give this to my husband for Valentine’s Day and he seriously would love it!!

  255. 258

    I have never owned a toaster oven…but, I had recently decided that I wanted one! Perfect timing…

  256. 259

    I have never had a toaster oven, but I could see many useful ways to make it help me out in the kitchen!!

  257. 260
    Lynn BB

    What an awesome toaster oven! I’d love to win it!

  258. 261

    I have never had a toaster oven, but it sure sounds like a I need one. I am trying to think of what I could remove from my counter so I could have a toaster oven. I know one thing … it can’t be my coffee maker, that would be no good.

  259. 262

    I have a similar story. My husband convinced me to get a toaster oven when we were married too. The Smart Oven looks like it could run circles around my old model.

  260. 263

    OOh my!! I get strangely over-excited about kitchen appliances and gadgets!! This thing looks AWESOME!!

  261. 264
    Christi P.

    Wow…how exciting it would be to have this amazing toaster oven. I have never had one before, but always wanted one!! I will keep my fingers crossed for this one πŸ™‚

  262. 265

    I’ve missed having a toaster oven at home — crossing my fingers for this one!

  263. 266
    Barbara Brown

    oooooohhhh I love toaster ovens! This one looks like a beauty!

  264. 267

    I would love to win this. We have been thinking of trading in our microwave for a toaster and this would be a good replacement πŸ™‚ Thanks for the opportunity!!

  265. 268

    We too are great lovers of toaster ovens. In fact we have never owned a taoster in our 13 1/2 years of married life because we have alwasy had a toaster oven to do that for us. Our current t/o is not so great. The toaster function no longer works so I have to use the broiler to make toast and I usually burn at least one batch or one side of one batch. Lots of scraping at the sink!! A new one is on our list, but other things keep getting in the way.

  266. 269

    That is one fine toaster oven. It is so much more than a “toaster oven”!!Breville has the best apppliances. Hope I win it!!

  267. 270

    Such a beautiful toaster oven! It really looks like so much more!

  268. 271

    I would love one of these. thanks for the giveaway.

  269. 272

    I am new to toaster ovens, but I would love to give this one a try!

    LOVE it!!!
    i have their espresso machine and LOVE it as well. I think they would look nice side by side,
    (although i don’t really have that much room:)

  272. 275
    Laura Z.

    Looks nice! I want one! πŸ™‚

  273. 276

    After 23 years of marriage, our second toater oven passed on. With two in college and one still to go, it would have to be a freebie for us to get one. Can I beg?

  274. 277
    Laura R

    Holy Shazzam! Now that’s a toaster! It’s a beaut!

  275. 278

    I would love one of those! I grew up with a toaster oven, and now I miss it!

  276. 279

    Love my toaster oven. A new one would be nice!

  277. 280

    Toaster ovens are a big hit in our family…every one of us has been given a hand-me-down toaster oven when we moved out (or just moved again). Mine finally gave up the ghost not too long ago and I had to get a new one. But it’s definitely not as nice as the Breville. In fact, my parent’s toaster oven is sickly…I think I’d have to pass on the Breville to them. πŸ™‚

  278. 281

    ooooooo…… That’s beautiful!

  279. 282

    I grew up with a toaster oven and my parents still have one, but I don’t. We had a small kitchen when we were first married and my hubby didn’t “get” it at the time. Now, as our children approach the time they will want to do a bit more in the kitchen, a toaster oven would be great! Crossing fingers here!

  280. 283
    Shannon Korger

    I have never had a toaster oven – I have never been totally convinced it would be a piece of kitchen equipment that would be beneficial to us. But hearing how much you love it and how versatile it is, it’s tempting to go check one out. I know my husband’s been bothering me to get one.

  281. I came into the toaster oven thing way late and now I am hooked. I can’t imagine one that sophosticated since we use our to toast and to heat tator tots! Very cool.

  282. 285

    Our toaster oven also came as a wedding gift, and 7 years later it is on it’s way out. It is our most commonly used kitchen item. Don’t know what people do without one. This one looks like a beauty!

  283. 286

    Pretty sure I need to have this!

  284. Beautiful! I bet I could find a happy home for this somewhere. πŸ™‚

  285. 288
    Katie Boyer

    We would love this!

  286. 289

    Oooohhh, pretty, shiny! Do you think this could eliminate having a microwave?

  287. 290

    I had a toaster oven in college but not this pretty!!!

  288. 291

    I’ve got just the right spot picked out on my kitchen cabinet:)

  289. 292

    This toaster oven looks awesome! I’d really like one!

  290. 293

    This looks like something I would LOVE to have. We need a new toaster anyways!

  291. 294

    How wonderful! We’ve been wanting to get a toaster oven, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet. This one looks lovely.

  292. 295

    I grew up with one in my house, and my husband just didn’t get it when I told him we had to register for one. I still remember the wonderful person who knew how important it was to have one….but alas, ours is on it’s last legs too. We try to use it more than using the microwave – because whether that’s unhealthy or not remains to be seen and it keeps us from re-heating food in plastic containers. It’s amazing how fast these little buggers heat up and can reheat food, cook meals, breads, etc. I would definitely be excited to own a new one!

  293. 296

    I’ve never had a toaster oven but they sound great. I would love to have one. Thanks for the giveaway

  294. 297
    Nickie S.

    Ooohhh!! I can foresee so much fun with this gadget! I’ll take anything that makes life a little bit easier!

  295. 298

    This looks great. I bought a much less expensive “smart oven” which I use a lot and like very much. I wish I had seen this before. Still, I would not turn it down if I won!

  296. 299

    Sign me up for this one! Thanks and good luck everyone!

  297. Wow! Look at the size of that thing! Impressive and so sleek πŸ™‚
    Hmmm, if I win, I have no idea where on earth it would live in our little kitchen, but I’ll enter anyway πŸ™‚

  298. 301

    My kitchen would love one! (and so would I!)

  299. 302

    I would LOVE one!

  300. 303

    that is one sexy toaster!

  301. 304

    Wow! That is definitely something that I could use! I am always using my toaster oven, but would gladly move over to a Smart Oven! Thanks for introducing me to something new.

  302. 305
    Jamie Raley

    I have never owned a toaster oven.

  303. 306

    Its so FANCY!! Love it..I’ve never worked w/ a toaster oven..please pick me! πŸ™‚

  304. 307

    For whatever reason, I was never sure what the point in toaster ovens were. But then, my boyfriend-who-doesn’t-cook informed me of there wonderful uses, and how even he liked using them, and I think I get it now! haha

  305. 308
    Jenny Smith

    I’ve never used a toaster oven but this post makes me want to start.

    I’d love a toaster oven for reheating leftovers. Beautiful appliance.

  309. 312

    That is one appliance that would look great in my kithen I could do so many things with this nice looking toaster.

  310. 313
    Jenn A

    I have been using a toaster oven ever since I got married 15 years ago. I have 4 kids now and could definitely use the capacity for 6 pieces of toast at once – plus the other “billion” things it can do. It looks and sounds great!

  311. 314
    Michelle D

    I love all kitchen stuff! This looks like a must have!

  312. 315

    I have never owned a toaster oven. I never even knew their purpose… until I lived with my sister for a few months. I have wanted one ever since and this one seems like a pretty good place to start! πŸ™‚

    I was also introduced to toaster ovens by my husband and ours is quite worn out. This one is gorgeous!

    I don’t think my kids even know what a normal toaster looks like!

  316. 319

    I love your blog! I use the menus shared to plan ours. One of these days I will actually post.

    Lynn Edwards

    I have been looking for a new toaster oven. This one really looks like it is the one for me.

  318. 321

    We were given a toaster oven for our wedding too. We lived in Austin, Texas and I loved the idea of being able to make cookies in the summer without turning on the oven and heating up our whole apartment. Unfortunately the oven we had did not cook evenly, and I’d have to turn the pan once or twice during cooking. I know I’d love a better version of this great appliance.

  319. i would LOVE to own a toaster oven!!

  320. 323
    Sarah C.

    I too became a convert when we got a toaster oven for a wedding present. Would love to win one!

  321. 324

    Living in the South, I have fallen in love with my toaster oven because I can cook without heating up the whole kitchen in the summer. However, mine is on its last legs too, so I’d love to replace it with this one!

  322. 325

    Wow, that looks AMAZING! I didn’t have a toaster oven until I was married either and I love mine. AND it’s a hand me down from my husband’s mother, so it’s really old.

  323. 326

    Would loooooove this!

  324. 327

    Beautiful. I love my toaster oven too and this would make things even better!

  325. 328

    Sign me up! I have yet to replace our toaster oven that we also received as a wedding gift 11 years ago. It was amazing, but finally died. I loved to broil salmon steaks, bake cookies, and make toast as well.

  326. 329

    With just my husband and I, we do the majority of our baking in our little toaster oven. This would be a huge improvement over what we have.

  327. One word…. AWESOME!!!!

  328. 331

    I have thought one of these would be nice to have. My sister-in-law has one and loves it. It would make some of the little meals easier to do.

  329. 332

    This would be great. My wife would love me if I showed up with this in hand.

  330. 333

    I’ve been wanting to get a toaster oven but haven’t known how to choose. This one looks wonderful!

  331. 334
    Chelsy E.

    My toaster oven bit the dust three months ago…oh how I miss those thin-crust proscuitto,basil, and ricotta pizzas I used to make in that thing. This would be a great addition to my kitchen!

  332. 335
    Jessica Z

    I didn’t know you could make cookies in a toaster oven?! I want one!

  333. I have always wanted a toaster oven, but have never gotten one yet. Thanks for the review. I will have to grab this one. Great giveaway!

  334. 337

    I’ve been wanting to try one of these! Thank you!

  335. 338
    Amy C

    WHo knew??? We are finally finishing the kitchen remodel. Thanks to your hubby. Maybe we’ll add one

    Wow! What an incredible give away! I would love to win one!

  337. 340

    I have always wanted one of these, maybe I’ll get lucky and win one! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  338. 341

    This would be a perfect birthday gift for my friend who just moved to NYC and is venturing into cooking her own meals! I love mine aldeady and I’m sure she would too!

    I’ve never had a toaster oven and never “got it” either. Maybe I’ll win one and have my epiphany!

  341. 344

    I’ve never had a toaster oven – would love to try one out.

  342. I don’t qualify for your giveaway πŸ™ but boy oh boy, I love the idea of a toaster oven! When we return home later this year, I will be sure to look for one.

    Looks great! Congrats for the new toaster! πŸ™‚

  344. 347

    Looks awesome, I want one!

  345. 348

    I love this post…toaster ovens are a big deal in our family. My mom & dad, my sister and I all had one that looked just like your old when, and when they all died (not at the same time) we had a very hard time finding new ones we liked. They just don’t seem to make them like that anymore. What a treat this would be to try out the Smart Oven!! Thank you!

    WOW, this looks amazing! We have been microwaveless for the past 4 years, and I keep looking at toaster ovens – I think this one is a keeper.

  347. 350

    Wow. It seems it can do everything but slice and dice. I currently have one of the generic toaster ovens. Very useful, but the smart oven seems to be a good replacement when the old one dies and I can save enough (It is a bit pricey)

  348. 351

    Love toaster ovens!

  349. 352

    Hi! I am new to your blog…. just found it this morning and love it! And my toaster oven is 8 years old and looking pretty poor lately πŸ™‚

  350. 353

    I also never had a toaster oven growing up by my husband insisted on one! Ours is going out the door as well and this looks like a great upgrade! Hope I’m the winner!

  351. 354
    Lisa F

    Wow. That is beautiful!

  352. Like so many other in here, I am a toaster oven virgin. I have not only never had one, but I’ve never even used one. That being said, based solely on your post, I now want one. I want one bad! I did t know you could bake cookies in there, and you can cook meat? Seriously? Why have I never used one of these magical little contraptions before? It sounds amazing! Maybe I will be a lucky winner this week, if not, I think I’ll be making a toaster oven purchase soon. Thanks for the great blog! I really enjoy your posts.

    Please Please I need a toaster Bad! I rock the $5 wal mart special!

  354. 357

    I recently moved and gave up my toaster for space reasons – I’ve been using the oven instead. A toaster oven seems more practical and fabulous!

  355. 358

    I just moved into a new place and this toaster oven would look great in my kitchen!

  356. 359

    Hook me up, homey! πŸ˜‰

  357. 360

    I would be sooo happy if I won this toaster oven. I use my very old one, every single day, for everything!

  358. 361

    I haven’t used a toaster oven since college but reading this reminded me why it was so easy and fun to cook with one. I’d love to bring one back to my kitchen.

  359. 362

    Oh I really, really want to win this! Fingers crossed!

  360. 363

    My husband has wanted one of these, but I have always associated toaster ovens to really old people. Upon further research, it appears that I may actually save a lot of time and money using one of these versus firing up the oven every time?!!

  361. 364

    I LOVE toaster ovens!!! This would be such a wonderful addition to my kitchen.

  362. 365

    The toaster oven looks like a dream! I hope that I win! πŸ™‚

  363. 366

    It’s a must have in the kitchen. Mine too is on its last legs. Hope I win! πŸ™‚

  364. 367

    I don’t have one and it would be great to win it!! We are a family of 3 (husband, baby & me) so this seems like a must have πŸ™‚

  365. 368

    I was converted to toaster ovens when I lived in Switzerland & France, but I can’t get my husband to budge on giving me some countertop space to purchase one. PLEASE random number fairies — let me win!

  366. 369

    this toaster oven is SO pretty! <3

  367. 370
    christine lucero

    I agree, a good toaster oven that has lasted forever is hard to say goodbye to… BUT I do love the look of the new toaster oven!

  368. 371
    Lindsey S

    I’ve never owned a toaster oven, so this would be amazing to win πŸ™‚

  369. 372

    So I can’t even begin to tell you how much this would rock! We have a propane stove that is going out. Every time we try to use the broiler, flames come shooting out the door when you open it and the CO alarm is set off. I miss yummy garlic bread!

  370. 373

    My old toaster is on its last legs!!! I would love to win this πŸ™‚

  371. 374

    Oh my goodness, I would loooove this amazing machine!! πŸ™‚

  372. 375

    Oh my I would LOVE this toaster oven!

  373. 376

    I would love to see some toaster oven tips or recipes. Is there a website out there?

  374. 377

    I have never had a toaster oven, but now I really want one!

  375. Here is our menu:

    SUNDAY: Cream of Cauliflower Soup, Spinach Salad, and Light Whole Wheat Baguette

    MONDAY: Caramelized Onion Quiche and Butternut Squash, Pomegranate + Roquefort Salad

    TUESDAY: Leftovers

    WEDNESDAY: Chinese Beef Broccoli and Jasmine Rice

    THURSDAY: Leftovers, then Wicked: The Musical & Dessert

    FRIDAY: Homemade Pizza, Salad

    SATURDAY: Chicken and Rice Soup with Vegetables

    THIS WEEK’S TREAT: Homemade Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows

  376. 379

    Cool! I’ve never had or even used a toaster oven and this looks like the granddaddy of them all!

  377. 380

    I didn’t grow up with a toaster oven, either, but had one in the office. It’s great for making quick lunch items for the kids and reheating! Not to mention, is there really a conventional toaster that works for more than 6 months?

  378. 381

    This is very pretty, would go great in our new kitchen!

  379. 382

    Just found your blog looking for menu ideas for the week. This toaster oven looks sleek! I’ve been considering removing our microwave and replacing it with a toaster oven. This one would do the trick. πŸ™‚

  380. 383

    Ours is on it’s last leg too :/ My teenagers use it daily!
    Been holding off on getting a new one…maybe because I might have a chance to win the awesome Smart Oven πŸ™‚

  381. 384

    I always envied my friends in college who had the toaster oven – would be a good idea especially if you don’t want to heat up the entire house! Sounds like a fun product.

  382. 385

    Wow, I could totally make myself a yummy lunch in this beauty!

  383. 386

    I don’t even have an old toaster oven. This would be thrilling!

  384. 387

    I adore my toaster oven. We use it constantly to reheat food. Far more than the big oven!

  385. 388

    OMG!!!! I needed this sassy toaster last week. My gas oven/stove has decided it was tired and needed a break from all of the cooking (or maybe that was me!:) I would really love to win this toaster oven, but more than me, my little girl would love it much better. She saw this toaster giveaway and said “mommy, please respond to this. I am so sick of fast food!” So here I am leaving OUR reply!!!!!!

  386. 389

    This looks like such a great multitasking toaster oven, I would love to give it a good home, lol.

  387. 390

    What a beautiful toaster oven. I’d love to be in the lottery!

  388. 391

    That looks like a great toaster oven! We almost never use our microwave any more since we have a toaster oven (also from our wedding registry). I would probably just get rid of our microwave altogether if we had a toaster oven like the one you have now!

  389. 392

    Wow! Cool! A toaster oven would be just dandy.

  390. 393

    I never had a toaster oven growing up either and I’m curious about all the hype. This one sounds fantastic…you’ve convinced me to give it a try.

  391. 394

    Yes please…I need a simpler , smaller oven that can do it all!

  392. 395

    That toaster oven looks amazing. An upgrade is always nice : ) Thanks for sharing.

  393. 397

    I hope to win this one!! πŸ™‚

  394. 398

    This would look great on my countertop!

  395. 399

    I DID grow up in a toaster oven family and we’ve somehow never gotten one… years of living overseas and tiny apartments. I have a real house now and would love one.

  396. 400

    Hey! I have not had a toaster oven since I moved overseas a 8 years ago, but this one looks great!

  397. 401

    I am a total toaster oven lover! I don’t think I could live with a toaster! How do you heat stuff up without it getting soggy??? My Krups door doesn’t close all the way anymore…not so effective anymore! Winning this would just about make my life right now!!

  398. 402

    Toaster ovens rock!

  399. 403

    I really need a new toaster oven! Mine is like your old one and is ready to be replaced πŸ™‚

  400. 404
    Lisa Spiegel

    Oh wow…I have had the same toaster oven since my DH and I got married 19 years ago…and it is time to retire it..I would LOVE to upgrade to this…just to be able to toast 6 pieces of toast at a time (with our family of 5) would be amazing!!

  401. I am a complete LOVER of toaster ovens, as well. I love the convenience of not having to heat up a big oven just to put a nice crisp on leftover pizza – or to bake corn dogs that aren’t soggy like they get in the microwave, and about a billion other reasons that I’m sure you could guess. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  402. 406

    This looks like a ‘real’ oven, nice and heavy duty. Looks like it will on my want list now. Would be great for small pizza’s.

  403. 407

    I love our toaster oven so much; could NOT live without it. This one appears to be a beauty…I’d gladly make room on my counter. What a great give-away! Thank you (:

  404. Let’s give it a try…I’d love to personally rave about it πŸ™‚

  405. 409

    Neat, a toaster oven! πŸ™‚

  406. Well you’ve convinced me I need a toaster oven. I have never owned one! I have a microwave and a toaster. And both are on their last legs. This toaster oven looks supreme. Would be so happy to win!

  407. 411

    That toaster oven is of the future. Shiny buttons! πŸ˜‰ My neighbors had a toaster oven, growing up, and I never quite understood their beauty until recently. They.Are.Awesome.

  408. 412

    I was looking for a toaster oven and was totally blown away how many poor ovens are on the market. Everything within my price range had poor ratings so I put off getting one. I was looking at Breville, but it was too pricey. Would love to get this.

  409. 413

    Oh, Hello Smart Oven! I felt as if I was reading a blog written by myself…my Cuisinart, my love as well, is also on it’s last legs, and I’m sure it would understand the Smart Oven moving in it’s place. <3 your blog!!

  410. 414

    Wow it looks great! Would love to win this and give it to my mom – she deserves something new and shiny in her kitchen more than anyone I know!

  411. 415

    Wow! What an amazing giveaway – the toaster oven looks great.

  412. I LOVE my toaster oven, but it’s on its last leg. The heating elements are starting to warp which I’m guessing is a bad sign! I use it all the time, and I’d love a new fancy-dancy one!

  413. 417

    I don’t have a toaster oven, but my regular toaster is my favorite and most used appliance. I’m sure I would love the Breville toaster oven.

  414. 418

    I got rid of my old Black & Decker during a recent move and I would love to have this beauty to replace it! Thanks for the give-away!

  415. 419
    Stacey Van Eck

    I have never had a toaster oven, nor did I feel I was missing anything. Now that I am seeing this beauty, I want one!!!!!! Stunning!

  416. 420

    Wow, would love to upgrade to one of these! Looks amazing!

  417. 421

    I don’t think I’ve ever had a toaster oven but would love one of these! Thanks for the giveaway!

  418. 422

    Oh my! This looks amazing!!

  419. 423
    Krsitine N

    I love my toaster oven also. I have the same “old” one as you and would love to have a brand spankin beautiful one….

  420. Since my birthday is this week I should win! Ha! As always thanks for the giveaway and good luck to everyone!

  421. 425

    I have never owned a toaster oven. I would love to give it a try.

  422. 426
    Brandon S

    I really want this!

  423. 427

    That’s a fancy schmancy toaster oven!!!

  424. 428

    I’ve never had a toaster oven, but would love to try one!

  425. 429

    I’ve never had a toaster oven, but you have me convinced, it would be an awesome addition to my kitchen! Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  426. 430

    I would so love this! A great think to keep my oven from heating up in the summer, please pick me!

  427. 431

    I have never used a toaster oven and have been looking for one recently. I’m overwhelmed by all of the choices. Love the look of this one. Thanks for the chance to win.

  428. 432

    That toaster oven looks amazing. Thanks for the contest!

  429. 433

    After 3 years without electricity- we built our own house. We finally have a need for a toaster oven. That was 3 years of toasting bread in the broiler of the oven, remembering it was in there oh and you have to turn it over too. So first on our list was a toaster oven- this one would certainly be quite a reward for 3 years without electricity!!

  430. 434

    oh..I’m in love! I just love that toaster oven. And they are right…it does seem to be a “smart” oven.


  431. 435

    I would love to win the toaster oven…Our little white toaster hit the transfer station last Wednesday.
    Just want to mention-I have browsed your site a few times, but never read through all your stories etc…I really have enjoyed the site. Also BizhdeBah, my daughter wanted to do community service so she choose to make a meal for her teacher that just had surgery. She made Funereal Potatoes and Bistro Chicken.-Thanks! for the recipes-
    She was pleased that her teacher called and raved about her cooking skills. The meal was delicious.
    A toaster oven would of been great to have to toast garlic bread which would of been included with the meal.

  432. 436

    Our microwave just kicked the bucket and I think this little beauty would be able to replace it!

  433. 437

    Toaster Ovens weren’t a part of my growing up experience either. But my husband has almost talked me into this appliance when our “on the way out” toaster finally kicks the bucket. Would love to win this and put it to some serious use! Thanks for the chance.

  434. 438

    I miss my toaster oven SO much! It used to come in so handy for certain things and it had a special spot on our counter! Another one would look great there!

  435. 439

    Oh my! I love toaster ovens!

  436. 440

    my family got their first toaster oven in 1990. it was the same exact one you posted a pic of. that just brought back lots of memories. over 11 years jane!?! that toaster oven has not only survived that long, but has also made the move from east to west coast! <3

  437. 441

    Interesting…I’ve never had a toaster oven and I’d love to try it.

  438. Hope to soon have a new kitchen, how fitting to have a new toaster oven for it!

  439. 443
    Allison Rufelth

    We loooooooooove our toaster oven, but it has seen better days! The smartoven seems too good to be true, and I would love to make some room for it on our counter!

  440. 444

    What fun! Thanx for the chance

  441. 445
    Michelle P

    As a newlywed that forgot to register for a toaster oven I would love to win this! Thanks for the offer πŸ™‚

    Kathy D.

    I think I had the exact same Black & Decker oven! I loved it; but unfortunately, mine did not last quite as long as yours. I’ve had two since and haven’t been thrilled with either one. I would love to have one of Breville’s Smart Ovens!!!!

  444. 448

    Love my basic toaster oven, can’t even imagine the possibilities with this one!!

  445. 449

    I’d love to try this out!

  446. 450

    I had a roommate who froze cookies in the freezer. She would then warm in the toaster oven, and it was like they had just been cooked.

  447. 451

    That is one beautiful toaster oven!!

  448. 452

    I got one for my sister for Christmas and she LOVES it. Since then, I’ve been wanting one for myself. It’s been on my wishlist. That’s one awesome giveaway.

  449. 453

    This little toaster looks amazing! I want it!!!!

  450. 454

    Oooh, been contemplating a toaster oven….

  451. 455

    Got one of these for my sister-in-law. She loves it and now I want one for my wife. Please help me score some points!

  452. 456
    Andrea M

    I did the same thing to my husband on our registry!!! And similar circumstances… it is ready to be put to rest. I COVET this oven! (yikes!) πŸ˜‰

  453. 457

    The toaster oven I currently have is the same as the old one in the first picture! Would love to upgrade!

  454. 458

    I grew up with a toaster oven and loved using it! It would be nice to have one for myself now. πŸ™‚

  455. 459

    Thanks! That toaster oven looks awesome!

  456. 460

    Can you believe that I don’t have a toaster oven? We had really basic one when our family was young but now that it’s just the two of us… I just never replaced the Olde English muffin pizza toaster Marvel when it flamed out! It was like a beginners oven for training the kids.

  457. 461

    I would love to have a new toaster oven so I can prepare a wholesome dinner for my husband on a daily basis. Ha!

  458. 462

    wow! looks impressive!

  459. 463

    I just heard the ding on our toaster oven reheating leftovers. L

  460. 464

    This looks so cool. I hope I win it!!!!

  461. 465

    i really really really really really really really want this!!!!!!

  462. 466

    I haven’t had a toaster oven in years and this one looks rocking!!!

  463. 467

    This is a cool toaster oven!

  464. 468
    Jess S

    Oh how I would love to win this! We don’t have one now and we’re always wasting gas turning on the oven to reheat last night’s pizza or make a plate of nachos. This looks amazing!! πŸ™‚

  465. 469

    We dont have a toaster oven. I would love to win this awesome one.

  466. 470

    I too have a barely functional toaster oven that I received for my wedding 10 years ago. I’d love this one!

  467. 471

    OMG! This oven looks amazing. I have been through so many toaster ovens in my life and I have not found one that works well. I would LOVE to win this oven! For those of you who do not have a toaster oven…get one and you won’t be able to live without it ever again!

  468. 472

    Since my boys are never home anymore something like this would be really perfect for hubby and me! Thanks for such a great site!

  470. 474

    I’ve heard wonderful things about toaster ovens. They provide a myriad of uses, for all meals and snacks of the day. Who wouldn’t love it?! My “in-laws” basically swear by it! I recently gave them this book I found that was just perfect for them. It is called “The Gourmet Toaster Oven: Simple and Sophisticated Meals for the Busy Cook” by Lynn Alley. Major kudos to this book!

  471. 475

    Looks great! Thanks

  472. 476
    Liz Konstanty

    Just started following your blog and love it. We would also LOVE this amazing toaster oven. We don’t have one now and can think of so many things we could do since there’s just 3 of us…yum, makes me hungry just thinking about it!

  473. 477
    Suzanne Robinson

    I’d love to discover why this is a necessary appliance!

  474. I would love, love, love a toaster oven…my kitchen has needed one for a long time. Fingers crossed.

  475. 479

    Perfect for cheese toast! One of those kitchen appliances I have wanted for a while, but haven’t gotten around to getting it.

  476. 480

    I love toaster ovens!

  477. 481

    I’d love a new toaster oven. We got ours for less than $20 almost 10 years ago. πŸ™‚

  478. 482

    I’m in the market for a new toaster oven, and this one looks amazing! I recently discovered this site, and I’m loving it. Thanks!

  479. 483

    Wow, what a beautiful Smart Oven! I gave away my toaster oven years ago and I regretted it! This would be great… if I won!

  480. 484

    My son, who is getting engaged next week, was just commenting about the fact that it was time for me to replace my old toaster oven. Now that he’s moving out and starting his new life, a toaster oven will be just enough oven for little ol’ me. This one is a bit out of my price range, so it would be sweet to win one! Fingers crossed….

  481. 485

    Our Old Reliable toaster oven finally keeled over dead. It’s about time I replaced it, and I think this might just be the perfect oven to fill the void in my life… or my counterspace. πŸ˜‰

  482. 486

    Never used one……Hum… I’m in the mood of experimenting.

  483. 487
    Sarah Darby

    Yes please!!! I would love it!

  484. 488

    I would love this!

  485. 489

    That toaster oven looks awesome!

  486. Yikes! That’s alot of comments! I’ve never had a toaster oven, but would love to be converted. πŸ™‚ Love your blog, BTW.

    Kimmie S

    Oh this toaster oven is gorgeous! Our toaster top element went out and it would be lovely to replace it with this beauty!

  488. 492

    My toaster oven is on its last leg too so this would be awesome!

  489. 493
    Kim McLaren

    Wow! This looks lovely!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  490. 494

    after reading your story, i am feeling a little guilty that i did not “let” my husband register for a toaster oven when we were married 10 years ago (Feb.24th)
    if i win, i will have to give it to HIM as a Happy Anniversary and I’m Sorry gift!

  491. 495

    I less than love the toaster oven we received as a wedding gift. It’s a Cuisinart and it takes about 10 minutes to make a piece of toast. I’d gladly swap it out for this beauty!!

  492. 496

    I could seriously use one of these babies!

  493. 497

    Oh, this would be nice. Mine is junk – won’t shut off unless you unplug it. Sounds safe, huh?

  494. 498

    please please pick me

  495. 499
    Linsy Holyoak

    This Toaster oven sounds amaizing! I have never used one before, i’d love to try this one!

  496. how fun! I’d love to win!

    I have been thinking about getting a toaster oven. Didn’t grow up with one and I wonder if I would really use it. This would be a great way to find out πŸ™‚

  498. 502

    I NEED this oven! The bottom heat coil of the Black & Decker I have is half burnt out! This would fit perfectly on my counter! Send to me in snowy Coho, pretty please!

  499. 503

    I’ve never had a toaster oven. Seriously, I caught tostadas on fire in the toaster oven in 7th grade, causing the west wing of the school to have a fire drill. However, this toaster oven looks so cool, I couldn’t burn anything in it. Really…

  500. 504

    I was just thinking about getting a toaster oven!

  501. 505

    great giveaway; I found this blog through Two Peas and their Pod.

  502. 506

    Oh WOW wonderful giveaway. My fingers are crossed!

  503. 507

    What a hot looking toaster oven! A friend introduced me to your blog a couple weeks ago. Love it.

  504. 508

    I just ran across your blog today, looking for weekly meal plan’s and got sidetracked by some of your other entries.
    Very enjoyable read. And the toaster is nice too!

  505. 509
    Kristen Malan

    You should ask your sister how I made anything in college. I bet I used the real oven for purposes of baking cakes only. My toaster oven is my wing man in the kitchen…I’d find a real nice home for it if I happened to upgrade to that beauty.

  506. 510

    this would be awesome to replace my microwave and toaster! love the concept.

  507. 511

    We also have a “toaster oven that could” although I feel like we’ve brought it back from the dead a few times. From my research, this one is THE toaster oven … but a bit spendy so we’ve held off. Here’s hoping…

  508. 512
