Countdown Classic 4-Slice Toaster
For your safety and continued enjoyment of this product, always read the instruction book carefully before using.
17. Do not operate your appliance in an appliance garage or under a wall
cabinet. When storing in an appliance garage, always unplug the
unit from the electrical outlet. Not doing so could create a risk
of fire, especially if the appliance touches the walls of the garage
or the door touches the unit as it closes.
When using an electrical appliance, basic safety precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
1. Read all instructions.
2. Always unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning.
Allow to cool before cleaning or handling.
3. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
4. To protect against electrical shock, do not place any part of the toaster
in water or other liquid. See instructions for cleaning.
5. This appliance should not be used by or near children, or
individuals with certain disabilities.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. 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 appliance to the
nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair, or electrical
or mechanical adjustment.
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.
NOTICE: This unintentionally appliance has a polarized plug (one blade
is wider than the other). As a safety feature, 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 attempt to defeat this safety feature.
8. Do not use outdoors.
9. Do not let cord hang over the edge of the table or countertop or touch
hot surfaces.

heated oven.
