SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
• FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY. .
• No user-serviceable parts inside. Do not attempt to service this
product.
• A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risk of becoming
entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. An extension cord may
be used with care. However, the marked electrical rating should be at
least as great as the electrical rating of the Toaster Oven Broiler. The
extension cord should not be allowed to drape over the counter or
tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
POLARIZED PLUG
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. If the plug fits loosely into
the AC outlet or if the AC outlet feels warm do not use that outlet.

PREPARING YOUR TOASTER OVEN AND BROILER FOR USE
Your Rival® Toaster Oven is equipped with all of the options of a full-size
oven in a countertop appliance – it toasts, bakes and broils.
NOTE: Initial start up operation may result in minimal smell and smoke
(about 15 min). This is normal. It is due to the protective substances on
the heating elements, which protect them from salt effects during
shipment from the factory.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR TOASTING
1. Rotate the TEMPERATURE DIAL to toast
A. Open the GLASS DOOR and place the bread on the wire rack (up
to 4 slices).
B. The WIRE OVEN RACK will slide out when the door is opened.
C. Remember to remove the BAKE PAN first.
2. The TIMER DIAL is the ON/OFF switch
A. Choose your color preference by adjusting the TIMER DIAL to
select light, medium or dark.
B. To test the toasting of your type of bread, we suggest starting at a
medium setting as bread varies according to humidity, thickness
and texture. Each type of bread will toast differently according to
these properties.
IMPORTANT:
When choosing toast color (light, medium or dark) always rotate the
timer over 5 minutes and then rotate back to dark, medium or light. This
will ensure that the timer operates correctly and safely.
• When the toast cycle is finished the bell will ring and the electrical
power is automatically turned off.
• To stop the cycle at any time, turn the timer clockwise to the OFF
position and the bell will ring.
• Four (4) slices will be lighter than one (1) slice, adjust TIMER DIAL
accordingly.
• If toasting only one slice, place bread in the center of the WIRE OVEN
RACK, 4 slices should be toasted side by side.
In this cycle, both the top and bottom heating elements operate.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR BAKING
1. Place the food on the multi-use pan and then place the pan on top of the
WIRE OVEN RACK in the oven. Close the GLASS DOOR.
NOTE: We suggest to always preheat the oven at this setting before placing
the food inside.
2. Rotate the TEMPERATURE DIAL to the desired temperature.
3. The TIMER DIAL is the ON/OFF switch.
After rotating the TEMPERATURE DIAL to your desired temperature, you must
select the TIMER DIAL with the following options.
A. For short baking times, rotate the TIMER DIAL clockwise (up to 15
minutes). At the sound of the bell, the bake function will turn off
automatically.
B. For longer baking times, rotate the TIMER DIAL counter-clockwise to
the STAY ON setting. The cooking will continue until the TIMER DIAL is
manually turned off. The bell will sound after the timer is manually
switched off.
NOTE: In this cycle, both the top and bottom heating elements operate.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR BROILING / TOP BROWN
1. Place the food on the multi-use pan and then place the pan on the top of
the wire rack in the oven. Close the GLASS DOOR.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR BROILING / TOP BROWN (CONT.)
B. For long time broiling, rotate the TIMER DIAL counter-clockwise to the
STAY ON setting. The broiling will continue until the TIMER DIAL is
manually turned to the off position and the bell will sound.
In this cycle, only the upper heating element operates.
NOTE: Always monitor the food at this setting to ensure that you are not
over cooking.
We suggest using the timer as food can burn quickly at this setting.
When broiling, turn the food over for even cooking. Food should not be
placed directly on the WIRE OVEN RACK.
For top browning simply broil as long as desired.
Do not pre-heat.
Do not allow aluminum foil to touch the heating elements.
USEFUL TIPS
1. Condensation will appear on the GLASS DOOR for some foods and then
disappear. This is normal.
2. Cook food immediately after defrosting.
3. Frozen foods and thick meats will take longer to cook.
4. Avoid opening the GLASS DOOR too frequently to prevent heat loss.
5. When toasting frozen bread or more than one fresh slice, the toast
preference should be at a darker setting than if you were toasting one
regular slice.
6. When broiling, smoke will likely appear. Removing excess fat prior to
broiling can reduce this. Always use the multi-purpose pan.
IMPORTANT:
When setting the timer for less than 5 minutes, always rotate the timer past 5
minutes and then rotate back to your chosen time. This will ensure a safe and
accurate time.
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR TOASTER OVEN AND BROILER
1. Before using your Rival® Toaster Oven, wash all of the accessories –
WIRE OVEN RACK and BAKE PAN – in hot water with detergent soap.
2. Initial start up operation may result in minimal smell and smoke
(about 15 minutes). This is normal. It is due to the protective
substance on the heating elements which protects them from salt
effects during shipping from the factory.
3. Always make sure that the appliance is unplugged and cooled before
cleaning.

A. This appliance has a drop open crumb tray at the bottom of the
baking chamber. First, unplug the appliance and allow it to cool.
B. To clean out the crumbs, simply tilt the unit backwards and pull
down on the crumb knob located at the exterior center bottom of
the baking chamber and allow to drop on the counter top.
C. Washing of the interior of the crumb tray is accomplished by
placing the unit on its backside and allowing the crumb tray to fall
forward for easy cleaning.
D. DO NOT use the dishwasher to clean any of the accessories, which
are included with this product.
E. DO NOT use any abrasive cleaning products.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q
A
Unit smokes during baking or broil function
Initial start up operation may result in minimal smoke or smell
(about 15 minutes). This is normal and due to the protective
substance on the heating elements which protects them from salt
effects during shipping.
Smoke in baking function often means the BAKE PAN or interior of
oven is dirty. Clean per instructions.
Smoke almost always appears in broiling and is normal. Cut off
excess fat prior to broiling to reduce smoking.
Stop using the appliance if smoke source is the power cord.
Unplug immediately.
Q
A
The WIRE OVEN RACK is stuck and GLASS DOOR does not
operate smoothly.
Remove wire oven rack and clean inside the WIRE OVEN RACK
grooves inside the oven chamber. Also clean inside of crumb tray.
Check that hook on GLASS DOOR is properly aligned into WIRE
OVEN RACK.
Q
A
Toast is black and smoking or too light.
