Longer extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use. 6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, or after the appliance has malfunctioned or has been dropped or damaged in any way, or if it is not operating properly. Return the toaster to store or retailer where purchased for examination or repair. 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 unintentionally. 7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Cuisinart may cause injury. 8. Do not use outdoors. NOTICE: This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).

Foods should fit freely between the guide wires. Some notes on browning Toasting is a combination of cooking and drying the bread. Therefore, differences in moisture level from one bread to another can result in varying toasting times. • Do not place buttered breads or pastries with fillings or frostings in the toaster, as this could create a fire hazard. • For slightly dry bread, use a lower setting than you normally would. • Uneven toasting is usually due to bread slices of uneven thickness. • For very fresh bread or whole wheat bread, use a higher setting than normal. • Breads with very uneven surfaces (such as English muffins) will require a higher toast setting. • 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 putting into the toaster. This will help prevent fruit pieces from falling into the toaster or sticking to the guide wires in the slot. • Before toasting bagels, slice each bagel into two equal halves. • After use, unplug your toaster from the electrical outlet. Defrost button The Defrost button is designed to first defrost and then toast the bread, which extends the toasting cycle slightly. 1. Insert slice(s) of bread. 2. Set the browning control. Settings 1-2 For refrigerated breads and thinner frozen items such as frozen pancakes. Settings 3-5 For toaster pastries, frozen waffles and (thin) French toast, and refrigerated bagels. Single slice toasting Settings 6-7 For thicker frozen items such as bagels, hand-cut bread and thick French toast. 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. 3. Press the Defrost button. Blue LED indicates feature is activated. Frozen waffles, pancakes, french toast and frozen bagels These breads and pastries should be warmed using the Defrost button. 4. Press the toast button to start. 4 Fail-Safe • Should the unit sense that it is over-heating it is designed to activate a “Fail-Safe” to ensure it can cool down quickly and be able to return to a safe, usable state. To stop cycle When the defrost 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 to interrupt. • After use, unplug the toaster from the electrical outlet. Reheat button The reheat feature allows you to reheat bread without browning or toasting. When the Fail-Safe is activated all the LCD and LED lights will come on and the unit will sound (3) one-second audible tones. The LCD and LED lights will remain on until the unit is unplugged and re-plugged into the outlet. 1. Insert slice(s) of bread. CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE 2. Press the Reheat button.
