the Smart Toast™ BTA840

4 slice motorised diecast toaster

'Lift & Look™' and 'A Bit More™' at a Touch of a Button

A new world of bread needs a new world of toasting. So how do you toast any type of bread and get it just the way you like it?

Breville's Smart Toast™ motorised toaster's elegant push button controls include 'Lift & Look™' and 'A Bit More™.' Lift & Look™' activates the motorised carriage to gently raise the bread just long enough to check if it's done. Press 'A Bit More™' and the carriage lowers once more to give it just that. LEDs count down the toasting progress. Full die-cast construction, automatic raising and lowering, crumpet and defrost settings.

One touch. Perfection.

An elegant, gentle and virtually silent carriage lifts itself, and your toast, up and down. One touch push button control to start, and the motorised carriage does the rest.

A Bit More Button

For when near enough isn't quite good enough. As the name suggests, 'A Bit More' toasts the bread for, well, that little bit more without the need to reset browning controls. Together with 'Lift & Look', 'A Bit More' means you can always get toast just the way you want it.

Self Centreing

To ensure bread is evenly toasted on both sides, self centreing slots have spring loaded carriages to automatically centre the bread relative to the toasting elements.

Crumpet Setting

Crumpets and bagels need higher heat on the top than on the bottom. On Crumpet Setting the outside element switches to low heat to prevent burning. Simply face crumpets inwards.

Progress Indicator

A countdown indicator lets you quickly see where the toast is up to in the selected cycle. Combined with Lift & Look it makes it easier to check progress and get toast just the way you like it.

Toaster BTA840

"This is in my opinion the Rolls Royce of toasters, the four slots are wide enough
to toast chunky sliced bread evenly, it toasts Scone Bread to perfection, with the look and see button helps keep and eye on the toasting. The bit more is another addition where you can cater to different tastes. This product and Brand has fewer store returns and the warranty is most reasonable. Yes i would recommend this brand and type of toaster to friends, family and anyone."
