'An indispensable appliance': This smart, do-it-all Breville toaster oven is nearly 40% off

I have a small kitchen, which means every inch on my countertop is precious. That's why I almost always opt for appliances that are compact yet versatile. A toaster oven is one of the most essential of them all — I mean, c'mon, it's a toaster and it's an oven — add some smarts to it and it becomes a must-have. Based on the specs, reviews and my ever-positive experiences with Breville products, this Breville Compact Smart Toaster Oven looks to be one of the best on the market. The best part? It's on sale on Amazon for nearly 40 percent off! Time for to upgrade, everybody.

This smart little toaster oven is a kitchen hero. Want to bake cookies? Press "Cookies" button. A perfectly toasted bagel? Hit "Bagel."

The Breville's smart element iQ system employs up to four independent quartz elements to heat up your food, depending on what mode it's in. Smart algorithms drive the power to where it's needed most. If, say, you're toasting bagels instead of bread, only the top elements will heat up, as that is the side you'll want toasted. Indeed, the eight cooking functions — Toast, Bagel, Bake, Broil, Pizza, Roast, Cookies and Reheat — take out the guesswork.

"Everyone should get this oven!" raved one shopper, who called it "an indispensable appliance in my kitchen" and said "with the 'brain' in this oven, everything heats perfectly."

Just because it's compact doesn't mean it's not roomy! Its medium capacity makes it ideal for four slices of toast, a 6-cup muffin tray, a 12-inch pizza, a 3- to 4-pound chicken and more! The nonstick coating in the cavity also makes this easy to clean.

But its multi-functionality is where it really shines.

"I did a lot of research before buying this oven," said this five-star review. "...My old Kitchen Aid died. I need a small toaster oven to fit in a particular space. This model is compact but a powerhouse. It toasts more uniformly than my previous brand. The controls are a little confusing at first, but within a few uses we have it down, and now we find it's easier to select our settings than our old oven. We have baked, broiled and toasted in it with great results."

Another impressed shopper added: "We have used the oven several times daily for toast, casseroles, baking cookies and biscuits. The size is perfect for our countertop. The crumb tray is very handy for cleanup. My smaller casserole dishes and biscuit pan with no handles fit well in the oven. I like being able to use the top of oven as a warmer."

"At our place 90% of the use of this thing is for toasting, so it's important that a toaster oven is as convenient and effective as an ordinary toaster" this reviewer said. "Long and short: this is a very upscale oven that's also a very convenient and effective toaster. Perfect."

Another added: "After using an ancient analog toaster for too long the Breville is way cool."
