1 Safety Instructions
The safety standards of AEG electric
appliances are in keeping with the
recognised rules of technology and the
law governing the safety of appliances.

consider it our obligation to make you
aware of the following safety information.
General Safety
• The operating voltage of the appliance
and the mains voltage as well as the
type of current must match (see the
rating plate on the underside of the
• Only plug into a correctly installed
earthed mains socket.
• Never pull the plug from the socket by
means of the mains lead!
• Prior to cleaning or in the event of a
malfunction, unplug the appliance
first! Loosen jammed pieces of toast
with a blunt wooden implement (e.g.
the handle of a cooking spoon). Ensure
that you do not touch the heater elements during this process.
• Do not reach into the toasting slot
with your fingers or metal implements
– there is a risk of injury and damage
to the appliance.
• The outer housing of the toaster is
thermally insulated. However the metal
parts in the toasting slot and on the
base of the appliance will become hot
– there is a risk of burns!
• Do not use the appliance if the mains
cable is damaged or the housing is visibly damaged.
• The mains cable is of a special type
and is only to be replaced by an AEG
customer service centre since special
tools are required for its replacement.
• Repairs to electrical equipment may
only be performed by qualified service engineers. Improper repairs may
lead to serious hazards for the user.
• In the case of a malfunction, please
therefore contact your dealer or AEG
customer service direct.
• If the appliance is used for purposes
other than those intended or used
incorrectly, no liability can be accepted
for any damage that may be caused.

at a PE collection point for recycling.
Padding materials made from foam
polystyrene (PS) are CFC-free and can

Operating Instructions
3 Prior to Using for the First Time
To avoid the build up of unpleasant
odours, the appliance should be placed
near an open window and operated a
few times at the maximum browning
setting without any bread. Leave the
toaster to cool to room temperature
between the heating phases.
Switching On (Figure 3)
0 Plug the mains plug into the mains
0 Insert bread for toasting.
0 Select the browning setting and press
down the start lever.
When the required degree of browning
has been reached, the toaster switches
off automatically; the slices of toast
are lifted up ready for removal. By lifting the start lever (bread lift function) the toasted bread can be lifted
sufficiently such that it is easy to
remove (Figure 4).
Adjusting the Browning Setting
(Figure 2)
Using the rotary knob you can continuously adjust the browning setting
from 1-6 as required. Setting 1 for
lightest browning. Setting 6 for darkest
Use a setting between 1 and 3 when
you first start toasting. If the toast is
not browned to your liking, set the
adjuster lower or higher, higher for
example when toasting rye or dark
bread. When toasting only 1 slice and
also when toasting bread that is no
longer fresh, use a slightly lower
browning setting.
The electronic toasting time regulator
ensures that once a browning setting
has been chosen, the results are always
the same for the same type of bread.
Once you have finished toasting we
recommend always turning the rotary
knob for the browning setting to •.
This prevents the appliance being
switched on accidentally.
Stop Button
If you want to interrupt toasting, press
the stop button. The appliance
switches off.
Once chosen, the browning setting
remains unchanged.
When using frozen bread or rolls, set
the browning control to
depress the start lever. The toaster
defrosts the bread and then automatically switches off.
Once the bread has defrosted, turn the
browning control to the browning setting of your preference, as described
above, and depress the start lever
Roll Rack (Figure 6/7)
0 Due to the nature of the function of
the appliance, the roll rack will become
hot during toasting, therefore never
touch the metal parts.
0 First, make sure the toaster is switched
Gently squeeze the roll rack by the
hand grips, and push it onto the toasting slot until it clicks in place.
0 Place rolls or other bread for crisping
on the rack, turn the browning control
to the required browning setting.
0 Switch on the toaster using the start
0 When the toaster has switched off,
turn the bread. Repeat the process.
Never place rolls or bread directly on
the toasting slot. Do not use the roll
rack as a carrying handle.
0 To remove the roll rack, first allow it to
cool down. Gently squeeze the roll rack
by the hand grips, and pull upwards to
Cleaning and Care (Figure 8)
0 Before cleaning, always unplug and
leave the toaster to cool down.
Crumbs dropping from the bread during toasting collect in the crumb
0 Pull out to the side and remove the
Do not use caustic or abrasive cleaners
to clean the thermally insulated outer
housing. Only clean the housing with a
dry or slightly moist cloth.
Liquid must not be applied to the
toaster, the toaster must also never be
immersed in liquid.
Thermally Insulated Outer
The appliance is enclosed in a thermally insulating outer housing that
makes it possible to move the appliance even when it is still warm after
