    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.

    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?

    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!

    • OrganicUprising.com
      July 17, 2014 | 6:30 am

      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!

    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.

    Michelle Leichter I defrost meat in warm water in my sink. Takes about 30 minutes or less, depending on the cut off the meat. For thin cuts, it’s often just as fast as the microwave.

    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.

    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.

  36. Food Renegade via Facebook
    July 14, 2014 | 10:11 pm

    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.

    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

    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!!!

      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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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!!

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

    I love my toaster/convention oven. I use it everyday. The convection heats up stuff so much better than microwave

    The only thing that concerns me about this is the nonstick interior.

    wow…
    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…

    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.

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

    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!
