IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
(Con’t.)
15. Use Toaster in an open area with 4-6 inches air space above
and on all sides for air circulation. A fire may occur if Toaster

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
CAUTION: This product is hot during operation and retains heat
for some time after turning off. Always use oven mitts when
handling hot materials and allow metal parts to cool before
cleaning. Do not place anything on top of the Toaster while it
is operating or while it is hot.
CAUTION: This appliance generates heat during use. Proper
precautions must be taken to prevent the risk of burns, fires or
other damage to persons or property.
1. All users of this appliance must read and understand this
Owner’s Manual before operating or cleaning this appliance.
2. The cord to this appliance should be plugged into a 120V AC
electrical outlet only.
3. If this appliance begins to malfunction during use, immediately
lift Toasting Lever manually and unplug the cord. Do not use or
attempt to repair the malfunctioning appliance.
4. Use the Toaster on a hard, flat surface. Do not place it near a
flame or heat or on a soft surface (such as carpet). Avoid

CAUTION: A short power supply cord is provided to reduce
the risk of personal injury resulting from becoming entangled
in or tripping over a longer cord. Extension cords are available
from local hardware stores and may be used if care is exercised
in their use. If an extension cord is required, special care and
caution is necessary. Also the cord must be: (1) marked with an
electrical rating of 125 V and at least 10 A., 1250 W., and
(2) the cord must be arranged so that it will not drape over the
countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children
or tripped over accidentally.
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug, (one blade is wider than
the other). As a safety feature to reduce the risk of electrical
shock, this plug is intended to 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.
ELECTRIC POWER
If the electric circuit is overloaded with other appliances, your
toaster may not operate properly. It should be operated on a
separate electrical circuit from other appliances.
This product is for household use only.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE FIRST USE
• Carefully unpack your Toaster and remove all packaging
materials.
• To remove any dust that may have accumulated during
packaging, simply wipe the Toaster exterior with a clean,
damp cloth.
• Do not use abrasive cleansers.
• Do not put the Toaster, cord or plug in water.
CENTERING BREAD GUIDES
Lowering the Toasting Lever closes the Bread Guides, holding the
bread centrally in the Bread Slots.
NOTE: Bread slice size should not exceed 4.5” x 4.75” x 1” thick.
SELECTING TOAST COLOR
Lighter
The Adjustable Browning Control Knob
is located at one end of your Toaster.
Simply turn the Knob clockwise to
the desired toast color: the furthest
position to the left is for warming
and very light toasting; as you rotate
the Knob clockwise, toasting will be
progressively darker.
To end the toasting operation turn the toast
color knob counter clockwise until the toast pops up or the
toaster shuts off.
Darker
The first time you toast, it is best to position the Knob at the middle
of the range;
then adjust each subsequent toasting to your preference.

TOASTING BREAD
1. Place your Toaster on a flat, level surface.
2. Plug power cord into a 120V AC outlet.
3. Adjust the Adjustable Browning Control Knob to the desired
lightness or darkness. Turn Knob to the left for lighter toast or to
the right for darker toast.
4. Remove all protective wrappings from food before placing in
Bread Slots. (Avoid toasting torn slices of bread and broken
pastries, which may get lodged in Bread Slots.)
5. Place bread or toaster food into Bread Slots and depress the
Toasting Lever. The Bread Slots will automatically center for
even toasting.
When toasting a single slice, the bread or toaster food may be
placed in either Bread Slot, but may toast slightly darker on the
inside than on the outside.
6. Toast will automatically pop up when the selected color
is reached.
7. Unplug cord from wall outlet when not in use.
NOTE: To prevent a risk of fire, never place bread over the
opening of the Toaster, but always place it into the
Bread Slots.

REMOVING LODGED TOAST
If a piece of toast becomes lodged in the Toaster, unplug the
Toaster and allow to cool. Press the Toasting Lever down. Turn
the Toaster upside down, and shake the toast loose.
IMPORTANT: Never use a fork or sharp-edged utensil to
remove toast. Doing so may damage the heating element
or cause injury.
PASTRY
For best results, follow the instructions printed on the pastry
package. If the package does not have instructions, position the
Adjustable Browning Control Knob in the middle. Some pastries
may require a second toasting cycle.
NOTE: Do not use this Toaster for toasting pastry items with
runny-type frosting or open fillings.

IMPORTANT POINTS
• Remove all protective wrappings from food before placing in
Bread Slots.
• For best results, clean Crumb Tray frequently.
• Different breads require different color settings.
• Do not block top openings. Do not place any object over the
top openings.
• Do not toast buttered bread or buttered pita bread. Melted butter
will cause fire.
• Bread which has been toasted but not buttered may be reheated.
Use a lighter setting and watch it carefully.
• When toasting more than one slice of bread, use slices of similar
size, thickness and freshness.
• Stale bread, thin bread or sweet bread products, such as tea cakes
and fruit loaf, brown much more quickly than ordinary bread, so
they should be toasted on the lighter settings.
• Never immerse Toaster in water.
• This appliance is for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY!
• There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Do not attempt to
service this product yourself.
• Never use a fork or sharp-edged utensil to remove toast. Doing
so may damage the heating element or cause injury.
