It is a high-end machine with an interface designed to be used easily by people when they’re in a rush in the morning.
- Browning Control
The smart toaster offers a browning control option to allow the user to get the desired level of browning. Some people love dark toasts, while others want their toasts to be lightly done. This toaster has LED lights to indicate the level of browning too so that you know at what shade your toast is right now. If you want a light or medium brown toast, you can set the browning control option accordingly and get your toast done perfectly.
- Easy Cooking of Bagels and Frozen Items
You can also cook your bagels, waffles, and different types of bread in this smart toaster easily. Even if you have frozen bread and bagels, this toast will easy cook them for you.

This feature is very handy, especially when you have no time for breakfast.
Negative Points of the Breville BTA820XL Die-Cast 2-Slice Smart Toaster
- Uneven Toasting
Breville BTA820XL has some reports of uneven toasting. The machine toasts bread in an uneven manner and thus, this can be counted as a negative point. I tried toasting the bread from both sides, but it has fewer bar marks on the upper side as compared to the lower side.
- Not for Large Families
If you have a lot of people at breakfast, this toaster might not be the right choice for your family. This is because it can only toast two pieces of bread or slices at a time, which can be very time-consuming. It can accommodate only one bread in one slot and thus, larger families can’t use it efficiently.
The Breville BTA820XL Die-Cast 2-Slice Smart Toaster is expensive, but it is equipped with lots of functions and adjustability controls to make the toasting easier. The Lift-and-Look buttons are also very handy and for me, it worked very well. This small machine is very helpful when you want a toast of your desired shade because you have the option of browning control too. The LED lights also let you know about the progress of your toast, which is very helpful. This toaster offers easy toast preparation for all those who are in a rush in the morning.
