Note: This toaster has a polarized plug
(one blade is wider than the other). To
reduce the risk of electrical shock, 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 modify the plug in
any way.
A short power-supply cord is provided
to reduce the risk resulting from
becoming entangled in or tripping over
a longer cord.
Extension cords are available and may
be used if care is exercised in their use.
If a longer extension cord is used,
• The marked electrical rating of the
extension cord should be at least as
great as the electrical rating of the

not drape over the countertop or
tabletop where it can be pulled on by
children or tripped over
