IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed,
including the following:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Read all instructions carefully.
Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse cord or plug in water or other liquid.
Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or
taking off parts.
6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions,
has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Return the appliance to EURO-PRO
Corporation for examination, repair or adjustment. Always call EURO-PRO first if appliance
needs servicing. See warrantee.

10. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner, or in a heated oven.
11. Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
12. Oversize foods, metal foil packages or utensils must not be inserted in a toaster as they may
involve a risk of fire or electric shock.
13. Do not toast “buttered” items or try to make toasted sandwiches in the toaster, as this will cause
or result in a fire.
14. Do not use torn, curled up, or misshapen slices of bread in the toaster as these may jam the

FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
SPECIAL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance has a short cord to reduce hazards of becoming entangled or tripping over a longer
cord. An extension cord may be used if the electrical rating of the extension cord is equal to or
greater than the rating of the electric grill. Use only an extension cord rated 15 amperes or greater.
Care must be taken to arrange the extension cord so that it will not drape over countertop or
tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of
electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not
fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not
attempt to modify the plug in any way.

How to Use Your Toaster
Toasting:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Position the toaster on a firm, level surface, away from any flammable surfaces (such as
curtains, etc.).
Plug toaster into electrical wall outlet.
Insert slices of bread or bagels into Bread Slots (1). (Maximum thickness 25mm/1 inch.)
Select the desired degree of toasting using the Browning Control Knob (2), (#1 being the
lightest and #7 being the darkest). Should you find that the setting that you have
selected is too dark for your taste, press the Cancel Button (8) and reset the Browning
Control Knob (2). Moving the Browning Control Knob (2) after toasting has begun will NOT
change the degree of browning.
Fully depress the Bread Carriage Lever (3) until it engages and locks into position - the
Bread Carriage Lever (3) will not lock down unless the toaster is plugged into the electrical
supply. Power On Light (9) will light up.
When the toasting cycle is completed, the toast will automatically pop up. For small items
such as English muffins, the Bread Carriage Lever (3) may be raised to allow for these items
to be removed after toasting cycle is completed.
Should you find that the Browning Control Knob (2) setting is too dark, press the Cancel
Button (8), reset the Browning Control Knob (2) setting and press the Bread Carriage Lever
(3) down until it locks into position and “Power On Light” (9) comes on. You MUST press the
Cancel Button (8) when resetting the Browning Control Knob (2) at all times.
When the Toasting Cycle is complete, the toaster will raise the bread. If you wish to stop the
cycle before it is finished, simply press the Cancel Button (8) to interrupt.
After use, unplug the toaster from the electrical outlet and let it cool thoroughly before
cleaning and/or storing.
Note: The Bread Carriage Lever (3) will not lock down unless the toaster is connected to the
electrical supply.
Caution:
1. Relatively dry slices of bread or bread that has already been toasted once, will
become brown much more quickly and may, under certain circumstances, catch
fire. Set the Browning Control Knob (2) to a lower setting if toasting the same
piece of bread twice and do not leave toaster unattended.
2. Do not toast food products or toaster pastries with frosting or runny fillings
that could drip into the toaster and cause possible damage or result in the risk of
fire.
3. Never toast buttered breads or foil-wrapped foods as they will damage the toaster
or result in the risk of fire or shock hazard.
Note: Should a piece of bread become trapped in the slot(s), the automatic safety cutoff will turn
the toaster “Off”, avoiding a fire hazard. To remove the bread, unplug the toaster and let it
cool thoroughly. Carefully remove the item without touching the heating elements.
Caution: Never use metal utensils to remove bread from the toaster.
Settings on Browning Control Knob (2):
1-3 Light
3-5 Medium
5-7 Dark

Tips on Toasting:
Please note that when toasting different breads the different moisture levels from one type to
another can result in varying toasting times.
• If bread is slightly dry, use a lower setting than you normally would.
• For very fresh bread or whole wheat bread, use a higher setting than normal.
• Breads with uneven surfaces (such as English muffins) will require a longer toasting time.
• When toasting raisin or other fruit bread, remove any loose fruit from the surface before placing
into the toaster. This will prevent them from falling into the bottom or sticking to the guard
wires in the slots.
• Sweet bread products (tea cakes, raisin bread, etc.) brown much quicker than regular
bread, and should be toasted on the lighter settings.
• Thick slices of bread (1/2” to 1” in thickness) may require 2 cycles of toasting.
• Do not use torn, curled up or misshapen slices of bread as these may jam the ejection
mechanism and could catch fire.
Defrosting:
The Defrost Button (6) is designed to first defrost and then toast the bread - this slightly extends the
toasting cycle.

• Setting 5-7: Thicker frozen items such as bagels, hand cut breads and thick French Toast.
Press the Bread Carriage Lever (3) until it locks into position and the Power On Light (9)
comes on.
Press the Defrost Button (6), Defrost Light (7) will come on. Bread will defrost first, and then
go right into toasting cycle.
When the Defrost/Toasting Cycle is complete, the toaster will raise the bread. If you wish to
stop the cycle before it is finished, simply press the Cancel Button (8) to interrupt.
After use, unplug the toaster from the electrical outlet and let cool thoroughly before cleaning
and/or storing.

cleaning and/or storing.

Bun Warmer Rack (12):
The Bun Warmer Rack (12)can be used to crisp buns which have become limp or to warm
rolls or croissants that are too large to fit inside the toaster slot(s). For faster warming or to
prevent over browning, cut the bun/roll in half.
Note: Foods being warmed or crisped should not completely cover the toaster top, allow
space for adequate air flow.
Important: Do not place food containers such as plates or foil
pans on top of the Bun Warmer Rack (12).

Care & Maintenance
1. Unplug toaster from electrical outlet. Make sure that toaster is completely cool before
cleaning.
2. Removable Crumb Tray (11) should be cleaned every 4-5 uses.
(See “Cleaning the Crumb Tray” Page 6)
3. Do not use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents. Outside surface may be wiped clean with a
soft, damp cloth and dried thoroughly. If necessary, a mild dishwashing detergent may be
applied to the cloth but not directly to the toaster.
4. Do not immerse toaster in water or any other liquid.
5. Do not allow plastic wrappings to lay against the toaster while toaster is being used. This
will result in melting the plastic onto the outside surface of your toaster.
Cord Storage
1. Unplug the toaster from the electrical outlet and let the unit cool thoroughly.
2. Turn the toaster on its side and wrap the cord around the inside base for storing. (Fig. 3)
