help you to use your Cuisinart® Toaster Oven Broiler to its fullest so
that you will achieve consistent, professional results.
15. Do not place any of the following materials in the oven: paper, cardboard,
plastic and similar products.
SPECIAL CORD SET INSTRUCTIONS
16. Do not cover crumb tray or any part of the oven with metal foil. This will
cause overheating of the oven.
A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
17. Oversize foods, metal foil packages and utensils must not be inserted in
the toaster oven broiler, as they may involve a risk of fire or electric
shock.
Longer extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised
in their use.
18. A fire may occur if the toaster oven broiler is covered or touching
flammable materials such as curtains, draperies, and walls, when in operation. Do not store any items on top of the appliance when in operation.
Do not operate under wall cabinets.
19. Do not clean with metal scouring pads. Pieces can break off the pad and

24. Slide the function dial to the off position to turn off toaster oven broiler.
IMPORTANT
As a safety feature, we have designed this unit to remain “Off”, when
unplugged or due to a power failure. To begin using your toaster oven
or to restart it, turn function dial to the “Off” position; then choose
desired oven setting (i.e., “Toaster”, “Bake” or “Broil”).
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
If a long extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the extension
cord must be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance, and
the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be tripped over or pulled on by children.
NOTICE
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a
safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact
a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

BEFORE THE FIRST USE
USE AND CARE
Place your oven on a flat surface.
Unwind the power cord. Check that the crumb tray is in place and that there
is nothing in the oven. Plug power cord into the wall outlet.
Before using your oven, move it two to four inches (5 – 10 cm) away from the
wall or from any objects on the countertop. Do not use on heat-sensitive
surface. DO NOT STORE OBJECTS ON THE TOP OF THE OVEN. IF YOU
DO, REMOVE ALL OBJECTS BEFORE YOU TURN ON YOUR OVEN. THE
EXTERIOR WALLS GET VERY HOT WHEN IN USE. KEEP OUT OF
REACH OF CHILDREN.
GENERAL GUIDELINES
Baking: Baking function can be used as you would normally use your
kitchen oven for roasting meats including chicken, or baking cakes,
cookies and more.
Broiling: Broiling function can be used for beef, chicken, pork, fish and more.
Caution: Aluminum foil is not recommended for covering the drip tray. Foil is
extremely dangerous when broiling fatty foods. Grease will accumulate and
may catch fire. The use of foil is not recommended, but if foil is used to cover
broiling pan, be sure foil is tucked neatly around the pan and does not touch
the walls or heating rods. Never cover crumb tray.
Turning off the toaster oven broiler: Slide the function dial to off. The
indicator will turn off.
Broil
Note: When broiling, add approximately 1⁄4 cup (50 ml) water to the bottom of
the broiling pan to reduce sizzling and splattering. Place the drip tray in the
broiling pan.
To broil, set temperature and function slides to broil. Preheat oven for five
minutes with door closed. After the five-minute preheat period, place the
broiling pan in the oven.
Note: Never use glass oven dishes to broil.
To stop broil operation, slide the function dial to off position.
Bake
To bake, set temperature slide to the desired temperature and move function
slide to bake position. The oven indicator light will turn on. Preheat oven for
five to ten minutes (time will vary depending on desired temperature); then
begin to bake.
Toast
If toasting two items, centre them in the middle of the rack. Four items should
be evenly spaced – two in front, two in back.
Browning Selection
Set function slide to toast. Move toast shade slide to desired browning setting. Press “Start/Cancel” paddle to begin toasting.
Stop Toasting
When the toasting cycle is finished, the oven will beep 5 times and turn off.
If you wish to stop the toasting cycle before it is finished, simply press the
“Start/Cancel” paddle. The toaster oven broiler will cancel your toast cycle.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
RECIPES
Always allow the oven to cool completely before cleaning.
1. Always unplug the oven from the electrical outlet.
2. Do not use abrasive cleansers, as they will damage the finish. Simply wipe
the exterior with a clean damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Apply the cleansing agent to a cloth, not to the toaster oven, before cleaning.
3. To clean interior walls, use a damp cloth and a mild liquid soap solution or
a spray solution on a sponge. Never use harsh abrasives or corrosive
products. These could damage the oven surface. Never use Brillo pads,
etc. on interior of oven.
4. To remove crumbs, slide out the crumb tray and discard crumbs. Wipe
clean and replace. Crumb tray is dishwasher-safe. To remove baked-on
grease, soak the tray in hot sudsy water or use nonabrasive cleaners.
Never operate the oven without the crumb tray in place.
5. Wire rack, broiling pan and drip tray are dishwasher-safe. If heavily soiled,
soak in hot sudsy water or use a nylon scouring pad or nylon brush.
6. Never wrap the cord around the outside of the oven. Use the cord storage
cleats on the back of the oven.
IMPORTANT:
After cooking greasy foods and after your oven has cooled, always clean top
interior of oven. If this is done on a regular basis, your oven will perform like
new. Removing the grease will help to keep toasting consistent, cycle after
cycle.
All of our recipes have been tested in our kitchen and specially developed to
work in the Cuisinart® Retro Toaster Oven Broiler. These mouth-watering
recipes are just a sampling of what the Cuisinart® Retro Toaster Oven
Broiler can do.

1-inch (2.5 cm) thick boneless pork loin chops
(about 7-8 ounces [198 – 227 g] each)
tablespoons (25 ml) finely chopped shallot or green onion
tablespoons (45 ml) chopped dried, pitted apricots
tablespoons (45 ml) chopped dried, pitted plums
cup (50 ml) lightly toasted chopped pecans
tablespoon (15 ml) medium dry sherry
tablespoon (7 ml) grainy Dijon-style mustard
teaspoon (5 ml) soy sauce, divided
teaspoon (2 ml) dried thyme
teaspoon (1 ml) freshly ground black pepper
teaspoon (5 ml) unsalted butter, melted
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste (optional)
Preheat toaster oven to 400°F (200ºC). Use a sharp, pointed knife such as
a boning knife to cut a deep, wide pocket in each pork chop horizontally,
leaving the back and sides uncut. Reserve. Lightly coat the broiling rack

Divide the fruit-pecan mixture evenly and stuff each pork chop. Skewer
pockets closed with toothpicks or skewers if necessary. Combine remaining
soy sauce with melted butter and brush on chops. Season chops lightly
with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste if desired. Arrange
chops on rack or lined tray and bake for 17 to 20 minutes. Use tongs to
turn chops over. Continue to bake until pork is cooked through (will measure 155 - 160°F (68 - 71ºC) when tested with an instant-read thermometer
and juices run clear), about 5 to 10 minutes longer if necessary. Let pork
chops rest, loosely covered, for 5 minutes before serving.

buttermilk or yogurt, soy sauce, dry minced onion, and granulated garlic.
Stir to combine and let rest for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, preheat toaster oven to 425°F (220ºC). Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat
with cooking spray.
Drain the chicken fingers. In a shallow dish combine the breadcrumbs,
cheese and paprika. Dip the chicken fingers in the breadcrumb mixture and
coat well. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Lightly spray chicken
fingers with cooking spray, turn and spray second side. Bake in toaster
oven for 15 minutes. You can prepare the sauce while chicken is baking.
After 15 minutes, turn and bake for an additional 12 to 15 minutes, until
chicken is completely cooked, crisply browned and juices run clear
(not pink).
For the sauce, place the mustard and honey in a small bowl and stir to
blend. Chicken fingers may also be served with other prepared sauces
or condiments such as BBQ sauce, ketchup or warm marinara sauce.

teaspoon (1 ml) kosher salt
teaspoon (1 ml) freshly ground pepper (black or white)
tablespoons (60 ml) chopped fresh chives, divided
Prepare and bake potatoes as in preceding Baked Potatoes recipe, but do

refrigerate.) Arrange potatoes on baking tray (can be lined with a sheet
of aluminum foil). Melt 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of butter and drizzle on potatoes.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes (add 5 to 10 minutes to baking time if potatoes
were prepared ahead and refrigerated), until potatoes are hot and golden
on the tops. Sprinkle hot potatoes with remaining tablespoon (15 ml) of
