No other kitchen counter top appliance company comes close to Breville. Sure, they happen to also be Australian (so I grew up with Breville on moms countertops), but that's not why I only use Breville in my kitchen. They're kind of like the Apple of appliances - tremendously thoughtfully designed, do exactly what they promise, but also look beautiful doing it. All stainless steel construction, so built to last years and all intelligently intuitive and smart. Ill tell you upfront you can get cheaper counter appliances out there, but when you're ready to buy a coffee maker, or blender or smart oven that will last a lifetime and deliver perfectly everyday Breville is it.
