USE AND CARE
Unwind the power cord. Check that the crumb tray is in place and that there
is nothing in the toaster slot. Plug power cord into the wall outlet.
1. Insert slice(s) of bread.
Be sure that multiple slices do not overlap and that the bread carriage
is in the up position.
2. Set the touchpad browning (shade) control.
If you do not make a selection, the Total Touch® Toaster will
automatically set itself to make medium toast (selection number four
on the LED bar). This selection will remain in memory until you press
the “Cancel” button, change the setting, or unplug the toaster.
To make lighter toast, press the “Lighter” button located to the left of the
LED bar. Each time you press this button, the browning selection will get
lighter by one setting.
To make darker toast, press the “Darker” button located to the right of the
LED bar. Each time you press this button, the browning selection will get
darker by one setting.

Your selected setting will remain in memory until you press the “Cancel”
button, change the setting by pushing the “Lighter” or “Darker” button, or
unplug the toaster.
The browning selection can be made either before or after pressing down
the carriage/ start lever.

3. Make selection of custom settings.
If desired, select a custom setting(s). It is recommended that you
make your choices before the carriage / start lever is pushed down.
If no custom settings are selected, the toaster will brown your toast
based on the selection you made with the touchpad browning control,
for 2 slices of normal toast.
The custom settings will adjust the time required to achieve the browning
shade you selected in step 2 above.
If you desire a custom setting, select one or more of the following:
1-Slice - For preparing one slice without overtoasting. Reduces
toasting time.
Bagel - Adds correct amount of time to toast cycle for bagels. This button
can also be used for English muffins and thickly sliced breads.
Defrost - To defrost, then toast. Adds time to the toast cycle for defrosting.
Reheat - For reheating pre-toasted bread.
When one or more custom settings are chosen, a red LED light will come on
above the selected feature button(s). You can combine as many as three of
these custom settings simultaneously to customize your toasting cycle. The
reheat setting cannot be combined with other custom settings. You can also
change the custom settings after pressing the carriage / start lever, although
it is recommended that selections be made prior to starting.
4. Begin toasting.
Press the carriage / start lever down until it locks into the down
position. The toaster will start.
5. To Stop Toasting.
When the toasting cycle is finished, the toast will be raised. If
4
you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply press the
“Cancel” button. You can also lift up the carriage / start lever to
stop the cycle. Note that pressing the “Cancel” button will also
reset the Browning Setting to the default medium setting (4).
Helpful Browning Notes:
Toasting is a combination of cooking and drying of the bread. Therefore,
differences in denseness and moisture level from one bread to another
can result in varying toasting times.
• For slightly dry bread, use a lower setting than you normally would.
• For very fresh bread or whole wheat bread, use a darker setting
than normal.
• Breads with very uneven surfaces (such as English muffins) will require
a higher toast setting. For English muffins, we suggest you use the
Total Touch® Toaster’s “Bagel” button on the custom settings panel.
• 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. We suggest you use the Total
Touch® “Bagel” button which will add to the normal toasting time. For
moister breads or very thick pieces, you may need to make the toast
setting darker than you normally would. Very thick pieces may require
two cycles.
• Before toasting bagels, slice each bagel into two equal halves. Select the
“Bagel” button which adds the extra time needed for toasting most bagels.
• When toasting raisin or other fruit breads and muffins, remove any loose
fruit, etc. from the surface of the bread before placing into the toaster.
This will help prevent fruit pieces from falling into the toaster or sticking on
the guard wires in the slot.
• A single slice of toast requires less toasting time than two slices of bread.
To prevent overtoasting, follow the directions under “Set the Touchpad
Browning Control” (page 4) and “1-Slice Button” (page 6). This toaster can
be adjusted for a single slice of toast by pressing the “1-Slice” button on the
custom settings control panel.
Notes on Specialty Uses:
Toaster Pastries:
Exercise caution with toaster pastries: the filling can become quite hot, long
before the surface of the pastry becomes browned. A low setting should be
sufficient. Never leave toaster pastries unattended while toasting or warming. Avoid iced pastries. The icing can melt onto inside of toaster or burn
easily.
Muffins:
Require longer toasting time than regular breads. Slice muffins vertically and
remove paper wrapper before toasting.
Regular Size Corn Muffins:
(3-4 oz., 3-1/2” diameter) can be toasted using the “Bagel” button and a
light to medium setting.
CUSTOM SETTINGS
1-Slice Button
Regular Size Blueberry Muffins:
(3-4 oz., 3-1/2” diameter top) may require 2 cycles. We recommend using
the “Bagel” button and a medium to dark setting. Dense, moist muffins like
these require long toasting cycles.
English Muffins:
Require longer toasting time than regular breads. We suggest you select the
Bagel Button on the Custom Settings control panel to increase the toasting
time, and use a medium to dark setting on the shade control.
Thick Sliced Breads:
Require longer toasting time than regular breads for medium brown toast.
We suggest that you select the “Bagel” button on the custom settings control
panel. You may also need to increase the darkness setting with the shade
control buttons to increase the toasting time. We recommend that thick slices
be kept to a maximum of 1-1/4” thick. Thick sliced Italian or Portuguese
loaves normally require a lighter shade control setting than other thick
sliced breads.
Croissants:
Croissants should not be more than 5” long. Slice in half horizontally. Use
the “Bagel” button and a light to medium setting for toasting. To warm with
minimal toasting, do not use the “Bagel” button.
Frozen Waffles, Pancakes, French Toast and Frozen Bagels:
Press the “Defrost” button when defrosting frozen waffles, pancakes and
French toast. For bagel halves, press the “Defrost” button and the “Bagel”
button. For waffles, pancakes and French toast, better results may be
achieved by using a few toasting cycles at a light setting.
Tips:
• Never force foods into the toasting slot. Foods should fit freely between
the guard (guide) wires.
• Do not place buttered breads or frosted pastries in the toaster, as this
could create a fire hazard.
• Uneven toasting is usually due to bread slices of uneven
thickness.
• Never insert hard objects into the toasting slot.
• After use, unplug your toaster from the electrical outlet.
Other toaster browning controls are preset to toast 2 slices of bread, which
requires more heating time than a single slice. The unique 1-slice feature
will prevent unexpected overtoasting when preparing only one slice, by
subtracting time from the toasting cycle.
1. Insert slice of bread:
Be sure that carriage is in the up position.
2. Set the shade control:
Select desired shade of browning using the “Lighter” and “Darker” buttons
on either side of the LED bar.
3. Press the “1-Slice” button.
The LED will illuminate when this feature is selected.
4. If defrosting a frozen bread slice, also press the “Defrost”
button.
5. If you are toasting a bagel half, half an English muffin, or one slice
of wide toast, you should also press the “Bagel” button.
6. Press the carriage / start lever down until it locks into position.
You can change these custom settings after pressing down the carriage /
start lever, although it is recommended that selections be made prior to
starting.
To stop cycle:
When the 1-slice 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, or
lift up on the carriage / start lever. Pressing the “Cancel” button will reset your
toaster to the default setting for 2 slices of medium browned regular toast
(setting 4).
Bagel Button
The bagel feature adds the appropriate amount of extra time to the toasting
5
cycle to toast your bagel at the color level selected with the touchpad shade
control. The “Bagel” button is designed for the most popular bagel size
(3 ounces). For deli-size bagels (3-6 ounces), increase the darkness setting
on the shade control. The “Bagel” button can also be used to toast English
muffins, a number of thick sliced breads, corn muffins, and thick sliced
specialty Italian or Portuguese breads which require longer toasting times
than an average slice of white bread.
3. Press the “Defrost” button.
The LED will illuminate when this feature is selected.
4. If you are defrosting bagel halves, English muffin halves or extra
wide toast, you should also press the “Bagel” button.
5. If you are only toasting one slice, you should also press the
“1-Slice” button.
6. Press the carriage / start lever down until it locks into position.
1. Insert bagel half or halves:
Be sure that multiple halves do not overlap and the carriage is in the
up position.
2. Set the browning control:
Select desired shade of browning using the “Lighter” and “Darker” buttons
on either side of the LED bar.
3. Press the “Bagel” button.
The LED will illuminate when this feature is selected.
4. If defrosting frozen bagel halves, also press the “Defrost” button.
5. To defrost and toast half a bagel, you may also want to press the
“1-Slice” button.
6. Press the carriage / start lever down until it locks
into position.
You can change these custom settings after pressing the carriage / start
lever, although it is recommended that selections be made prior to starting.
To stop cycle:
When the defrost and toast 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. Pressing the “Cancel” button will reset your
toaster to default setting for 2 slices of medium browned regular toast
(setting 4).
Reheat Button
You can change these custom settings after pressing the carriage / start
lever, although it is recommended that selections be made prior to starting.
To stop cycle:
When the bagel 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 or lift up on the carriage / start lever. Pressing the “Cancel”
button will reset your toaster to default setting for 2 slices of medium
browned regular toast (setting 4).
Defrost Button
The Reheat feature allows you to reheat bread without browning or toasting.
1. Insert slice(s) of bread:
Be sure that multiple slices do not overlap and the carriage is in the
up position.
2. Press the “Reheat” button.
3. Press the carriage / start lever down until it locks
into position.
You can change custom settings after pressing the carriage / start lever,
although it is recommended that selections be made prior to starting.
The “Defrost” button is designed to first defrost and then toast the bread,
which extends the toasting cycle slightly.

Be sure that multiple slices do not overlap and the carriage is in
the up position.
2. Set the shade control:

clean and replace. Never operate the toaster without the crumb tray
in place.
To remove any pieces of bread remaining in the toaster, turn the
toaster upside down and gently shake. Never insert any hard or sharp
instruments into the slot, as this could damage the toaster and cause
a safety hazard.
Never wrap the cord around the outside of the toaster. Use the cord
storage cleats on the underside of the toaster.
