- When it comes to pre-sets, the Quick Touch Crisp has 18 cook and grill menus, 7 reheat menus, 4 defrost menus and 2 melt and soften menus. The Quick Touch has 13 cooking menus, 13 reheat menus, 2 defrost and 2 melt and soften menus.

Which One Should You Buy?
While both microwave ovens have somewhat similar smart features, how you’ll be using your microwave should help you with you decision:
- The Breville Quick Touch Crisp has the true innovation and solution to a long-time problem: soggy reheated food. This magical microwave actually crisps your reheated food, let’s say we’re talking about pizza here… reheating pizza in any microwave will turn it into a soggy piece that you’ll have to eat right away before it hardens. The Quick Touch Crisp will reheat and crisp up your pizza like a toaster oven so you get a fresh-like pizza.
- The Quick Touch Crisp also has a grilling function. It has more cooking and grilling pre-sets. So this model is geared towards someone who likes to use their microwave for cooking as well as reheating.
- The Breville Quick Touch (which lacks the browning and crisping feature) has a lot more reheat and defrosting pre-sets, so it’s probably a better choice for someone who uses a microwave for reheating or melting purposes.
