SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
SPECIAL CORD SET INSTRUCTIONS
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting
from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer
extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised
in their use.
If a long extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the
extension cord should 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 pulled on
by children or tripped over.
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.
10. Do not place toaster on or near a hot gas or electric burner or
in a heated oven.
11. Do not use this toaster for other than intended use.
TABLE OF CONTENTS:
12. Oversize foods, metal foil packages or utensils must not be
inserted in the toaster, as they may involve a risk of fire or
electric shock.

INTRODUCTION
Heavy cast metal construction gives this premium Cuisinart toaster
an “industrialized” look - the style of choice in today’s upscale
kitchens. Cuisinart combines simplicity of operation with expert
technology. A solid black lever lifts high to let you remove small
items easily. A vintage-look green backlit shade control includes
Reheat and Bagel functions.
A “CD-style” pop-out crumb tray makes this toaster easier to
clean than most. And both the smooth cast metal and the
brushed stainless center panel clean up with a damp cloth.
Enjoy toast at its best, with Cuisinart!

Some notes on browning:
Toasting is a combination of cooking and drying of the bread.
Therefore, differences in moisture level from one bread to another
can result in varying toasting times.
Single Slice Toasting:
If you are toasting a single slice of bread, set the heat selector to a
lighter setting than you normally would. The toaster is designed to
heat the whole toasting chamber for two slices. By lowering the heat
for a single slice, you won't overtoast.
Toaster pastries: Exercise caution with toaster pastries; the filling
can become quite hot, long before the surface of the pastry
becomes browned. Never leave toaster pastries unattended while
toasting or warming.
3. To Begin Toasting:
Press the carriage lever until it locks into the down position.
4. To Stop Toasting:
When the toasting cycle is finished, the toast will be raised.
If you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply lift
carriage lever to interrupt.
Tips:
• Never force foods into the toasting slot. Foods should fit freely
between the guide wires.
• For slightly dry bread, use a lower setting than you normally
would.
• Do not place buttered breads or pastries with fillings or frostings
in the toaster, as this could create a fire hazard.
• For very fresh bread or whole wheat bread, use a higher setting
than normal.
• Uneven toasting is usually due to bread slices of uneven
thickness.
• Breads with very uneven surfaces (such as English muffins) will
require a higher toast setting.
• After use, unplug your toaster from the electrical outlet.
• Thickly cut pieces of bread (including bagels) will take longer to
toast, sometimes significantly longer, since more moisture must
be evaporated from the bread before toasting can occur. Very
thick pieces may require two cycles.
• When toasting raisin or other fruit breads, remove any loose
raisins, etc. from the surface of the bread before placing into the
toaster. This will help prevent fruit pieces from falling into the
toaster or sticking on the guide wires in the slot.
• Before toasting bagels, slice each bagel into two equal halves.

Reheat Function
The reheat feature allows you to reheat bread without browning
or toasting.
1. Insert slice(s) of bread.
Be sure that multiple slices do not overlap and the carriage is in
the up position.
2. Press the carriage control lever until it locks into position.
3. Turn shade dial to reheat setting.
To stop cycle:
When the reheat cycle is complete, the toaster will raise the bread.
If you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply lift carriage
lever to interrupt.
Bagel Function
The bagel feature adds extra time to the toasting cycle to allow for
thicker breads.
1. Insert slice(s) of bread.
Be sure that multiple slices do not overlap and the carriage is in
the up position.
2. Press the carriage control lever until it locks into position.
3. Turn shade dial to bagel setting.
When the bagel cycle is complete, the toaster will raise the
bread. If you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply
lift carriage lever to interrupt.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Always allow the toaster to cool completely before cleaning.
1.
Always unplug the toaster from the electrical outlet.
2.
Do not use abrasive cleansers. Simply wipe the exterior with
a clean damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Apply any cleansing
agent to a cloth, not to the toaster, before cleaning.
3.
To remove crumbs, slide out the crumb tray and discard
crumbs. Wipe clean and replace. Never operate the toaster `
without the crumb tray in place.
4.
To remove any pieces of bread remaining in the toaster, turn
the toaster upside down and gently shake. Never insert any
hard or sharp instruments into the slot, as this could damage
the toaster and cause a safety hazard.
5.
Never wrap the cord around the outside of the toaster. Use
the cord storage cleats on the underside of the toaster.

LIMITED 3 YEAR WARRANTY
This limited warranty is available to consumers only. You are a consumer if
you own a Cuisinart® Toaster which was purchased at retail for personal,
family or household use. Except as otherwise required under applicable state
law, this warranty is not available to retailers or other commercial
purchasers or owners.
We warrant that your Cuisinart® Toaster will be free of defects in materials
and workmanship under normal home use for three years from the original
date of purchase.
We suggest you complete and return the enclosed product registration card
promptly to facilitate verification of the date of original purchase. However,
return of the product registration card does not eliminate the need for the
consumer to maintain the original proof of purchase in order to obtain the
warranty benefits. In the event that you do not have proof of purchase
date, the purchase date for purposes of this warranty will be the date of
manufacture. If your toaster should prove to be defective within the warranty
period, we will repair or replace it at our option, without charge to you.
To obtain warranty service, simply send the defective product to:
Cuisinart, 150 Milford Rd.,
E. Windsor, NJ 08520, or call our Consumer Service Center
toll-free at 1-800-726-0190.
To facilitate the speed and accuracy of your return, please also enclose
$7.00 for shipping and handling of the product. CA residents need only
provide proof of purchase and should call 1-800-726-0190 for shipping
instructions. Please be sure to include a return address, description of the
product defect, product serial number and any other information pertinent to
the product’s return. Please pay by check or money order.

that is being returned, we recommend you use a traceable, insured delivery
service. Cuisinart cannot be held responsible for in-transit damage or for
packages that are not delivered to us. Lost and/or damaged products are not
covered under warranty.

BEFORE RETURNING YOUR
CUISINART PRODUCT
If you are experiencing problems with your Cuisinart product, we suggest
that you call our Consumer Service Center at 1-800-726-0190 before
returning the product for servicing. Often, our Consumer Service
Representatives can help solve the problem without having the product
serviced. If servicing is needed, a representative can confirm whether the
product is under warranty and direct you to the nearest service location.
*Important: If the nonconforming product is to be serviced by
someone other than Cuisinart’s Authorized Service Center,
please remind the Servicer to call our Consumer Service Center at
1-800-726-0190 to ensure that the problem is properly diagnosed,
the product is serviced with the correct parts, and the product is

CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY
California law provides that for In-Warranty Service, California residents have
the option of returning a nonconforming product (A) to the store where it was
purchased or (B) to another retail store which sells Cuisinart products of the
same type. The retail store shall then decide to either repair the
product, refer the consumer to an independent repair facility, replace the
product, or refund the purchase price less the amount directly attributable to
the consumer’s prior usage of the product. If either of the above two options
does not result in the appropriate relief to the consumer, the consumer may
then take the product to an independent repair facility if service or repair
can be economically accomplished. Cuisinart and not the consumer will be
responsible for the reasonable cost of such service, repair, replacement, or
refund for nonconforming products under warranty.
California residents may also, according to their preference, return
nonconforming products directly to Cuisinart for repair or, if necessary,
replacement, by calling our Consumer Service Center toll-free at
1-800-726-0190. Cuisinart will be responsible for the cost of the repair,
replacement, and shipping and handling of such nonconforming
products under Warranty.
