Breville Quick Touch Crisp Inverter Microwave Revolutionizes Microwave Cooking #QuickTouchCrisp

This post contains an affiliate link as a service to readers. 

The Breville Quick Touch Crisp Inverter Microwave is a thing of beauty, which makes microwave cooking fun. I am very familiar with Breville Canada appliances and I have several here that I love. Recently I was invited to a Breville Canada event in Toronto that showcased seven of their newest products. The Breville Quick Touch Crisp inverter Microwave was one of the showstoppers because it turns microwave cooking and baking on its head and makes your kitchen fun again.

Here’s what you need to know about this awesome new kitchen appliance.


Breville Quick Touch Crisp Inverter Microwave

This new small appliance uses inversion heating technology for more even heating across the board. In fact, the Breville Quick Touch Crisp inverter microwave is amazing. That inversion heating is combined with an integrated crisper pan and a built-in preheat function working in conjunction with the microwave to prepare foods that normally become soggy and gross in normal microwaves. Pie, quiche, pastry, and pizza taste better when the crust is crispy.

All That and More

Of course the Breville Quick Touch Crisp inverter Microwave can do the usual reheating and thawing, but this crisper microwave does much more – in fact it cooks food beautifully. Plus it reheats foods that normally get soggy from microwaving and makes them crisp instead. So you really can cook almost anything with them.


Smart Button Technology

Another feature of the Quick Touch Crisp inverter microwave that I love – and that I’ve been making use of – is its smart button technology which allows for one-button, automatic power levels and times. These favorites make it simple to cook with the most commonly used microwave methods like cooking, reheating, defrosting, grilled cheese, and more.


My Favourite Buttons

The Quick Touch Crisp inverter microwave even has a chocolate button and a soften butter button! I’ve been using those two a lot. But best of all for me is the crispy pizza crust. I love the difference. And also, for your information we witnessed roasted pine nuts and gourmet grilled cheese being done perfectly also in this microwave at the event.quick_touch_crisp_inverter_microwave

More Even Heating

One of the best side effects of this style of microwave cooking, for me as a parent whose old microwave was typically a mess, is the fact that the microwave heats so differently it rarely splatters. The inverter technology regulates power for more even heating. Essentially, it heats slowly, efficiently and cooks the food well. The Breville Quick Touch Crisp inverter microwave is the smartest microwave you’ve ever had.

A Crisper Microwave Like No Other

I am in love with my Breville Quick Touch inverter microwave. Not only is it great for everyday microwaving, but it’s a magical unicorn of a microwave when it comes to anything crispy. So far, I’ve enjoyed crispy pizza in my Breville, as well as made full use of this crisper microwaves function buttons.

I’ve been impressed by the Breville Quick Touch Inverter Microwave. It’s the nicest looking microwave I have ever owned. It has a pretty brushed stainless steel finish on the outside and a polished stainless steel on the inside. I love the beautiful digital display which fits beautifully with my two newest kitchen appliances – a fridge and dishwasher we upgraded this past year.

Funnily enough, the handle on the door matches our brand new third rack dishwasher in stainless steel. That was not planned at all, but it makes me happy. Read more about the product here – > Breville Canada

    A microwave that also makes your food crisp – that is awesome. I love crispy food and the ability to cook it faster makes this a must have.

  • Dana

    Such a cool idea for a microwave – any time I cook something in my microwave, it turns out mushy! I am also a big Breville fan – we have their convection toaster oven and it is the best!

    It’s about time to replace our microwave so this might be the perfect solution for us. There’s nothing worse than soggy food coming out of the microwave.

  • Noelle Pion

    I just got one of these and I’m confused as to how to get it to grill and crisp things other than the limited presets. Pie for example. Any tips would be appreciated.
