Does anyone have a Breville toaster oven?

I'm considering this but am confused by the dimensions. At Amazon Product Features lists the dimensions as 18-1/2 by 12-1/2 by 10-3/4 inches. Produce Details lists the dimensions as 18.5 x 16.2 x 11.2 inches.

I've also checked the Breville site, Williams-Sonoma and Bed,Bath, Beyond but can find no reliable clarification.

The four inches in depth makes a difference in fitting my space. Can anyone who has one help me with an accurate measurement?

Also, how do you like it?

    A wonderful device, it even toasts toast well which most toaster ovens do not.
    18.5 wide 12.5 deep 10.75 counter top to top.
    There is an additional one inch bulge on the rear wall (depth) to protect the cord entry to the body.
    This thing does everything well, looks great and reaches temp in a few minutes as opposed to a full sized oven.

    We use it almost daily.
    Enjoy.

      You're going to need a lot of spacing around the oven; it gets extremely(!) hot to the touch.

        This is a superb unit. It has a large capacity and a very good power reserve (1800W) so that it heats up quickly and has a powerful broiler. It looks good and it has a number of "smart" features that allow you to tailor your preferences in a number of ways. The broiler, for example, has 3 heat settings. The toaster not only has a range of "doneness" but also a setting for between 1 and 6 slices. (The large capacity allows it to hold 6 slices of bread.) The bagel settings allow you to toast the top of a cut bagel and only lightly brown the botton. The oven roast is even heat. It has a convection option. It's a cut above every unit I've had including the top-of-the-line Cuisinart.

        I don't find the outside surfaces particularly hotter than other units. The top gets hot but that's true of most units. There is a newly available heat resistant bamboo cutting board that can sit atop the unit even when the the oven is on.

          Any details on that bamboo cutting board? I'm in the midst of buying the oven... grazie!
