Created by Bill O'Brien and Harry Norville in Sydney, Australia, in 1932, Breville makes small kitchen appliances. The company is credited with manufacturing the original sandwich toaster, which was a hit upon its debut in 1974 and is now popular around the world, to the point wh
ere the word "Breville" in many places now means "toasted sandwich."
Breville also makes simple-to-use grills, kettles, coffeemakers, microwave ovens, bread makers, deep fryers, and woks. The Custom Loaf bread maker has an automatic fruit and nut dispenser and a no-fuss interface that computes temperature and baking time, so you can let the bread maker do most of the work. The Deep Fryer makes french fries, egg rolls, and donuts, and can produce both fancy appetizers and classic snacks; it "flash fries" food and employs an inventive flat "cool plate" at the base of the pan, which make for less oil absorption and a clean flavor.
