The Breville RM BTA820XL looks and functions like new and offers an affordable way to toast your bread. This die-cast toaster is one of the best available on the market.

Best Features of the Breville RM-BTA820XL Die-Cast 2-Slice Smart Toaster
- Push Button Controls
The push button controls of this smart toaster allow easy access to the functions of the machine. It has an intelligent one-touch system that allows auto lowering. The Lift-and-Look functions and controls also allow the user to operate the machine easily and toast the bread according to their preferred tastes.
- LED Indicators to Check the Progress
The machine consists of LED indicators that are very handy as they allow the user to check the progress of the toast. It was very helpful as I knew the illumination level of the LED at which my toast will be ready. The LED indicator is perfect for those who want the desired level of browning and bar marks on their toasts.
- Wide Slots for Bagels
The toaster has wide and spacious slots and can easily toast a bagel for you. You can even add more bagels and frozen items for defrosting in the machine. The slots are deep and wide (1-1/5 inches) and can hold a big slice easily. Even if you have large bagels, the slots will accommodate them because apart from being deep or long, they are wide too. The beep at the end of the cycle also helps knowing the completion of the toast.
Another big benefit of this toaster is that it comes with a 6-month warranty. The toaster is a 900-watt one and toasts two slices at a time. Even if you find any defect or manufacturing fault or it doesn’t work well according to your requirements, you can easily get the machine changes within 6 months of the purchase of this product.
Negative Things About the Breville RM BTA820XL Die-Cast 2-Slice Smart Toaster
- 2 Slices at a Time
The smart toaster can toast only 2 slices at a time and thus, it is not suitable if you have many people at breakfast. Though the slots are wide and deep enough, they can accommodate only one bread in one slot. I tried putting more than two slices in one slot, but it’s impossible. To get the right shades and level of browning, you must only put one bread in one slot at a time.
- Not Very Durable
This remanufactured machine is not very durable as compared to other toasters. Though it functions and looks exactly like the Breville BT820XL, it is not as sturdy as the one that was first manufactured. This casts a doubt on its durability. Many users have reported that the machine lasted only for a year or two.
