  1. Susan Conover via Facebook says

    I love, love, love my Breville toaster oven. I use it several times a week- roasting potatoes and vegetables, cooking chicken breasts or fish fillets, reheating leftover bread/rolls, making pizza, anything that is small enough to fit in it instead of using my large oven.

  2. Jennifer Anaya via Facebook says

    I have that oven! Love love love it!!! I make everything from roasted chicken to bread in it, it’s so awesome. Completely did away with my need for a second oven.

  3. Michele Brown via Facebook says

    going to right now. We lost all three toaster ovens in the fire (one was missing the dial for cooking (toaster only),one to cook, and one for camping.

  4. Nikki Ake via Facebook says

    I love my toaster oven! No microwave here for over two years. If I can use my toaster oven, I will! Pizzas, biscuits, potatoes, reheating leftovers, etc…

  5. Deoxy says

    I’m wanting to move away from the microwave for warming left-overs, but, with the non-stick coating on the inside of this oven, isn’t that just trading one bad form of cooking for another?

  6. says

    Wondering if it’s possible to give up my microwave. How difficult is that? What about defrosting? Have to think about it the night before you want something? Don’t know if I can. Sounds like a smart idea, but will require a big paradigm shift!

    • says

      Hi! We haven’t used a microwave in a couple of years. We don’t even own one at all now. With a toaster oven, it IS more simple than you think. Some of them even have “defrost” settings. If you’re speaking of defrosting meats, I generally fill the kitchen sink or large bowl with warm water and toss in the frozen meat (in package). It is typically defrosted in no time!

  7. dan zimsen says

    I was pushed to buy a Breville stick blender by my son. Great machine.
    Some say they use their microwave several times a week! We use ours several times an HOUR during waking hours. (Grandkids you know.)
    If I don’t win, I might buy one of these anyway.


  8. Ann says

    This sounds like a winner. Our dependable old toaster oven was hit with a power surge during a storm awhile back, so I would love having this one. We saw a Breville at one of the stores but it was too expensive and I think it might have been smaller.

    Thanks for offering it, and thanks for the ‘always informative’ newsletter.

  9. Terri says

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway. Great brand and sized oven. Like that you can fit 6 toast slices and a 13 in. pizza in it.

  10. Amanda Hearn via Facebook says

    Food Renegade I am very interested in your thoughts on the use of non-stick coatings used in this and other toaster ovens. I realize the grates may be stainless, but I am concerned about fumes during heating.

  11. says

    Amanda Hearn – I am not too concerned. The biggest danger comes when foods touch heated, non-stick surfaces. So long as I keep the food from touching those surfaces, I eliminate that risk. According to Dupont, the danger from fumes doesn’t really start to happen until the non-stick coating is heated to 660F. These ovens won’t get that hot, so I’m not worried. I *do* usually plugin new appliances like this on my back porch when I unpack them, then turn them on to their highest setting and let them air out for about 15 minutes or so. That usually gets rid of any fumes from residual factory coatings/treatments/cleaners.

    • Ann says

      Thanks so much for taking time to explain this, as I, too, have been concerned about the coating in toaster ovens and other modern day appliances.

  12. Julia Cleary via Facebook says

    WOW! Take advantage of this opportunity to possibly win this fantastic convection toaster oven!

  13. says

    I have used a Presto convection oven for almost 30 years but it finally died. In the past two years, I have tried two different units, one of which died – timer stopped working – and the Oster still works, although with only one cooking shelf, it’s not possible to cook a layer cake, as in the lowly Presto model. I would love to have a Breville convection/toaster oven it looks like it

  14. Rosa says

    I would love this! We already kicked our microwave to the curb and have been surviving, but this would be so nice! Thanks for the opportunity!

  15. Betty Barrett says

    I just entered and used as many of the ops as I could. Our youngest daughter has celiac’s and this would be absolutely wonderful for her…we have separate pans, and baking items to use with her food products and this would add another level of safety to keep her as gluten free as possible. Thanks for the give away and luck to all!

    Hi. I have clinked on the link at least a dozen times. From my desk top, iPad and cell phone. I have been on the email list for about a year. Not sure why I am unable to register for this giveaway. I haven’t had problems in the past.

  18. Jeanne Thelwell says

    My broiler is on the bottom of my stove, requiring me to get down on my creaky, 63-year-old knees to use it. I *really* need one of these!

  19. Jeanie Kochis via Facebook says

    I have never had a toaster oven. I don’t use the microwave that’s in my apartment, so this would be awesome to have!

  20. Shirley Weaver Jones via Facebook says

    I’m in an apartment and the “cook stove” is terrible, it heats the whole apartment within 30 minutes when the oven is turned on. I “LOVE” cooking and have had to give up oven roasting and baking but would be sooooo happy to be able to do “oven cooking” from roast beef to cream puffs again!

  21. Rosemary Whitworth via Facebook says

    this would be fabulous…but live in new Zealand and don’t know if im eligiable to enter…….

  22. Jamie Dunn says

    I don’t own a microwave! I know, I know. I’ve been thinking a toaster oven would be so much better for reheating and even some cooking instead of needing the stove every time!

  23. Sandi says

    I know Breville is a good name in kitchen products, and since I NEVER bake during the summer months because it heats up my little kitchen so much, it really would be nice not to have to wait for cooler weather to bake. Thank you for this opportunity.

  24. Jeannine says

    This would be really nice I don’t have a microwave, or toaster oven and I know this I’d a good brand.

  25. Penny Peterson Murray via Facebook says

    I am anti-microwave and would LOVE this fancy-schmancy toaster oven from Breville!

  26. says

    How very generous of you to give away such a nice appliance! I’ve been saying no to my microwave for a few years now- having this Breville will allow me to finally kick it to the curb! (meaning recycle it responsibly! ) :) Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  27. misty says

    thank you so much for all your giveaways!!!!
    i have been looking for a new toaster oven. i use it more than any appliance in my house. it’s been 2 weeks since mine decided to leave us….sadness!!!!! this one is a bit out of my price range but all the things it can do are AMAZING!!!!! christmas in july…that’s a real thing, right?

  28. Beverly Linton says

    My toaster oven bit the dust last week. Took it apart but couldn’t fix it. Absolutely cannot afford to buy one. Would love to win one.

  29. says

    We have a microwave that is built in that came with our house. We only keep it around because it is our vent hood for stove. We use the microwave to store spices in it! Haha. Makes good conversation when people see us open up our microwave and see a bunch of stuff stored in it. Great way to tell them the destructive properties of a microwave

  30. Michelle Conn Bingham via Facebook says

    I would be so grateful to win this. It looks and sounds amazing. You are the best.

  31. Sonia Shapiro says

    I couldn’t find the raffle widget at the bottom of the page — would still like to win, though — ever since I read about this toaster oven in the ad-free cooking magazine.

  32. Teresa Myers says

    Could side use this, moved from gas range home to electric, which I hate. Just treated for cancer this year, and big bills mean less disposable income, or toaster oven would have been bought by now.

  33. Andrew G. says

    I could definitely use this when I move out! The toaster oven is my preferred method of reheating foods.

  34. says

    I use my current toaster oven for soooo many things! I hardly have to use my oven or my microwave now that I am used to it. It makes better pizza, crispy on the bottom and melted on top. I use it for potatoes and reheating everything. I wet hard baguette bread and then cook in the toaster oven on 350 for 10 minutes and outside is crunchy and inside soft like when you first buy it. We eat a lot of burritos and I heat the toaster oven and while I am preparing fillings and then I turn it off and put the tortilla in for few minutes and it is cooked perfectly. Mine is getting ready to die, the fan sounds like a monster (10 years old!) and I really don’t want to be without it so I am excited to enter this contest!!!

  35. Gene Ulmer says

    I would love to win this toaster/oven. Our kitchen has no airconditioning(cool air)so we do not use the large oven all summer and we do have an older toaster/oven that is used for toasting and baking in small doses. Amazon says that this oven is their #1 best seller. Gets great reviews.

  36. Cyndi says

    PROBLEM. Saddened heart. Longtime subscriber. First time giveaway attempted. I do not have facebook. Haven’t owned a microwave in many, many years. Loved your defrost method. So wish there was another way to attempt a win at this lovely oven besides facebook. It would be most helpful and so delightful. Thank you for all you do =)

    • says

      I’m confused. You don’t have to be on Facebook to enter the giveaway; nor is Facebook the only way to gain extra entries (you could also choose, for example, to email 5 friends).

      To enter the giveaway, you just need to #1 click on the link and #2 be a subscriber. If you’ve done those things and verified your entries with the Raffelcopter widget, you’re entered.

  37. C says

    I too am concerned over the non-stick interior, I wish Breville made a model without it! The safety issue with non-stick coatings is not really at all it touching food (in fact ingested teflon seems to be inert, though I’d like to see more research on this), it’s the fumes released as it is heated that cause “teflon flu” etc…this is why bird owners are fastidious about what toaster oven they choose, I guess if it can kill a bird I’d still be concerned about it! But you have helped solidify this decision for us, we’re going to look for a stainless-interior toaster for reheating and put the microwave in the garage!

  38. Mari says

    FYI: The Google+ follow link is broken.

    Count me in on the “hate using the stove oven in the summer” – I do have AC in the main room of my apartment (kitchen is just part of one wall of the living room), but it seems absurd to heat up the apartment with the horribly inefficient, badly insulated electric stove just to spend more electricity cooling it back down. Especially since it takes 30+ minutes to heat the big oven up to 450, for the 10 minutes it takes to bake a pizza! I have NO counter space so if I won this I’d probably end up storing it IN the oven! LOL

  39. Catharine says

    I have never owned a microwave and never will. But I definitely would love to own this towster oven!

  40. Lily212 says

    Thank you so much for this wonderful giveaway! I need a toaster oven so I can stop using my large oven in the summer. Such a waste of energy.

  41. says

    Hi. Thank you for this giveaway. Always looking for ways to save energy in the kitchen… considering I make all my own foods from scratch. And, just thought the other day about upgrading my toaster over (which is pretty old), and still works great. This would be an amazing addition to my kitchen items. Thanks again!!

  42. says

    I’m a rebel with a cause, too. I am a Nutritional Therapist with three grown children and five grandchildren. My passion is supporting people with their health concerns through traditionally nutrient dense foods. Thank you for the giveaway offer of the toaster oven. I appreciate your recipes.They are so helpful to many people.

  43. Maryanne says

    Boy, I sure would love to be the winner of one of these! It looks fabulous! Thanks for the opportunity!

  44. Karen Wood via Facebook says

    I would bake everything in it. If I weren’t saving up to move I would buy one asap.

  45. Ignacio says

    I get the pop-up to enter the contest, follow through with the entry procedures only to be notified when I confirm my entry that the contest is “no longer accepting entries”…

    Got my hopes up and dashed them within seconds…

    manage the site better to avoid discouraging future readers

  46. Ann says

    I’m uncertain how to know who won this, as I checked back everyday afterwards and never saw a winner listed. I also check all my emails. I’ve entered several giveaways from others as well, and for some reason, it’s difficult to know who won. Now and then, I see a winner mentioned on the original page but mostly, nothing. And apparently, the winner isn’t notified by email. I’ve seen other comments on different blogs asking why it’s a mystery about who wins.

    I really enjoy your newsletters but guess I may not participate in the giveaways again, as it’s too confusing wondering how to find out who won.

  47. Kristen B. says

    Just wondering if the winner was posted yet (and maybe I missed it?) or if the winner will be posted soon?…

  48. Teresa says

    Just discovered your website and definitely advocate what you advocate! Thank you very much for giving your readers a chance to receive one of these top rated toaster ovens. After my microwave ended, I knew this was the moment I had been waiting for to change direction and after doing some research, the Breville Oven was at the top of my list. I’m excited for this chance to win one! I look forward to your future newsletters and browsing your website in the future. God bless you!
