The 4 Slot Die Cast Toaster
Breakfast will never be the same.



Not Your Average Toaster

Every Breville product begins with a simple moment of brilliance. The Breville die-cast toasters are for toast lovers and breakfast enthusiasts. Make the perfect piece of toast every time. White, wheat, sourdough, Cinnamon Raisin, English Muffins, frozen waffles, and bagels, you name it - you can toast it. Utilize the 'Lift and Look' feature and stop under cooking and burning your toast. Now with the Breville Die-cast toasters you can see how the browning is going, without stopping the toasting cycle. The toasting carriage lifts up automatically to let you view your food, and then returns down into the toasting for continued browning.






Designed with the consumer in mind

The Breville die-cast toaster features several consumer driven innovations to help you make the perfect piece of toast. The Breville 4 Slice Smart Toaster has an internal smart chip that lowers 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.  The auto lift and look 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 any time.

Fruit Bread
How will you PERFECTLY TOAST ANY SLICE no matter what type of bread?






Levers Are a Thing of the Past

The die-cast toaster uses a motorized carriage system so simply place your favorite type of bread into the slots and press the 'Toast" button. You can also use the 'Bagel' and 'Defrost' buttons to select the perfect option for your food of choice. The die-cast toaster features and LED toasting indicator so you can see the progress of your food. You can also adjust the degree to which you want your toast browned with the variable browning controls.

Breville toasters are a striking addition to any kitchen counter top. The body of the toaster is carefully constructed of die-cast metal, as are the button controls and power level sliders. The toaster features the Breville Assist Plug, making it safe and easy to store and take out the toaster at a moment's notice. The toaster also features hidden cord storage to help de-clutter your counter or kitchen cabinet.

From the Manufacturer

Attractively housed in brushed die-cast metal, this four-slice toaster features an internal smart chip that automatically lowers bread into the toasting slots with a single touch and regulates the toasting time. The unit provides dual control panels and each side operates independently of the other. Push-button controls allow for easily selecting toast, a bit more, bagel, defrost, and lift-and-look functions. With the "a bit more" setting, bread automatically lowers for additional toasting time. The lift-and-look function automatically raises the bread carriage during toasting without canceling or resetting the cycle, which allows for viewing, and if necessary, canceling the browning cycle at any time. The unit's LED panels illuminate according to the selected setting on the variable browning control. The display acts as a toasting progress indicator, counting down the time remaining in the toasting cycle. A beep indicates the end of the cycle. Other details include 1-1/5-inch-wide by 5-1/5-inch-deep slots, an 1800-watt heating element, a Breville assist plug for easy cord removal, and cord storage underneath. To clean, simply wipe the exterior with a soft cloth as needed. The toaster measures 13-1/4 by 13-1/4 by 9-1/2 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

Yes it makes toast. Yes it is cool to look at and use....but very poor realiability. First one had several burned out LEDS, so back it went. Second one would not beep when left side toast was done. Third one now also has burned out LEDS. I emailed Breville with the issues and the pictures. Their response:
"Good day. We are sorry for this rare situation with your Breville toaster. We have a good overall quality rating on this product. We would recommend to return to the place of purchase for an exchange. We are sorry for this inconveniennce.
The Breville team "

What are the odds that I have the only 3 failed products. I don't think so. I am packing it up today and taking it back for full refund.

Nice look, nice features and it performed well for a few months. Between my wife and I, we are no intensive users and I probably used "my side" less than than 20 times before it just quit functionning. The left side will no longer load the toasts, the motor does not seem to respond anymore. It quit will all light flashing and after unplugging and replugging, it never worked again. The other 2 slots are still working well and when it works, this is a fine toaster.

After researching on my problem, I found that several other people have had the exact same problem. I think that with the premium price this toaster is commanding, such poor reliability is simply unacceptable.

I would certainly not recommend this product to anyone.

after going through a bunch of toasters over the years, I found that the biggest cause of death was a stuck mechanism. So when I saw motorized toasters I was like... why not, at least it could die differently this time!

What I truly like about this one is that the toasting is consistant.
the bit more function is brilliant and the led indicators are working really well.

It's been a couple months already and it is used daily by kids and adults and so far we are using it more often than ever because it toasts well without dehydrating the bread, making for wonderful toasts (i.e. the distance between the toasts and the burners is optimal, roasting the outside, drying the whole thing).

*** Update ***
Updating my review after some more use. As with many user I am now suffering from the right side staying stucked in the low position. Breville Customer Service took 15 days to answer my first email and only asked for information that was already in the email I sent (problem, and toaster serial) they never ever replied to my (harsh but deserved) reply. To me this is a deal breaker for future Breville appliances. At this price point you should get 5 star customer service, not two weeks later didnot read your email.
Anyway self found the solution to the problem, which is electronical and thus should be considered a defect, you just need to unplug the toaster for 15 minutes.
Yup... you would assume that they could put that information on their website and save the customers a lot of trouble. Instead they will just ignore you.
Even though the toaster itself works perfectly and is the most even toasting toaster I used, I am lowering from 5 stars to 2. Items with a higher price point are expected to have a good customer service as well.

we bought this a year ago. it was fantastic ... when it worked. within 6 months the right side slots no longer toasted, and now the left side ONLY toasts on the inside, so we have to flip the bread over to toast the other side. basically it's the slowest toaster on the planet and for 4 people, at this point, useless. we need to get it replaced somehow.

I was looking for a Viking toaster to give as a gift but found they stopped making them. So I went searching for a solid, die cast toaster and found the top of the line Breville ones. I normally don't like their lower end products but this toaster is terrific. The gift was a success and the whole family loves the way you can peek at your toast to see if it's ready or needs a few more seconds. The blue lights are cool. It's extremely sturdy but be warned that it is very heavy. If you have trouble lifting things and can't leave it on the counter you might consider a lighter-weight toaster. The evenness of toasting is impressive and you can tweak the setting for the perfect toast every time. I still like my Viking but I would say they are pretty much equal.
So - a good choice for those who really love their toast.

The toaster is definitely very nice looking and the electronic controls make other toasters seem ancient. However, it wasn't very long before the slots on the right started toasting on only one side. The LEDs on that side no longer work and the ones on the left side are hit and miss. I contacted breville but it's more than a year old now so they only offered me 30% off a new one. No thanks. It's too bad, it looked good next to my breville toaster oven, kettle, food processor. I had been thinking about their Dual Boiler espresso maker but reports of quality issues with it have me thinking twice about dropping $1k+ on another breville product.
