SPECIAL CORD SET INSTRUCTIONS
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.
If a long extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the extension
cord must 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 tripped over or pulled on by children.
NOTICE
This 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.

BEFORE THE FIRST USE
USE AND CARE
Place your oven on a flat surface.
Unwind the power cord. Check that the crumb tray is in place and that there
is nothing in the oven. Plug power cord into the wall outlet.
Before using your oven, move it two to four inches away from the wall or
from any objects on the countertop. Do not use on heat-sensitive surface.
DO NOT STORE OBJECTS ON THE TOP OF THE OVEN. IF YOU DO,
REMOVE ALL OBJECTS BEFORE YOU TURN ON YOUR OVEN. THE
EXTERIOR WALLS GET VERY HOT WHEN IN USE. KEEP OUT OF
REACH OF CHILDREN.
GENERAL GUIDELINES
Baking: Baking function can be used as you would normally use your
kitchen oven for roasting meats including chicken, or baking cakes,
cookies and more.
Broiling: Broiling function can be used for beef, chicken, pork, fish and more.
It also can be used to top brown casseroles and gratins. Caution: Aluminum
foil is not recommended for covering the drip tray. Foil is extremely dangerous
when broiling fatty foods. Grease will accumulate and may catch fire. The use
of foil is not recommended, but if foil is used to cover broiling pan, be sure foil
is tucked neatly around the pan and does not touch the walls or heating rods.
Never cover crumb tray.
Toasting: Always have the rack in rack position “B”, as indicated in the
diagram on page 5, for even toasting. Always center your item/items in the
middle of the rack.
WARNING: Placing the rack in the bottom position or in the top position
with the rack upwards while toasting may result in a fire. Refer to rack
position diagram for proper use.
Turning off the toaster oven broiler: Turn the function dial to off. The
indicator will turn off.
Broil
Note: When broiling, add approximately 1⁄4 cup water to the bottom of the
broiling pan to reduce sizzling and splattering. Place the drip tray in the
broiling pan. Note: There are two positions for the drip tray so that a variety of
thicknesses of foods can be broiled. Also, the oven rack can be turned up or
down depending on the thickness of the food being broiled. In most cases the
oven rack should be in the higher position (position “C” – see rack position
diagram on page 5).
To broil, set temperature and function dials to broil. Preheat oven for five
minutes with door closed. After the five-minute preheat period, place the
broiling pan in the oven. Always leave door ajar when broiling.
Note: Never use glass oven dishes to broil.
To stop broil operation, turn function dial to off position.
Bake
To bake, turn the temperature dial to the desired temperature and turn
function dial to bake position. Make sure oven rack is in position “A” – see
rack position diagram on page 5. The oven indicator light will turn on.
Preheat oven for five to ten minutes (time will vary depending upon desired
temperature); then begin to bake.
Toast
To toast, make sure the oven rack is in rack position “B”, as indicated in
the diagram on page 5. If toasting two items, center them in the middle of
the rack. Four items should be evenly spaced – two in front, two in back.
Six items should be evenly spaced – three in front, three in back. Close the
glass door.
Browning Selection
Set function dial to toast. Turn toast shade dial to desired browning setting.
Press “Start” button to begin toasting.

Stop Toasting
When the toasting cycle is finished, the oven will beep 5 times and turn off.
If you wish to stop the toasting cycle before it is finished, simply press the
“Stop” button. The toaster oven broiler will cancel your toast cycle.
Important Notes on Toasting
The oven rack must be in rack position “B” as indicated in the diagram
on this page.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Always allow the oven to cool completely before cleaning.
1. Always unplug the oven from the electrical outlet.
2. Do not use abrasive cleansers, as they will damage the finish. Simply
wipe the exterior with a clean damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Apply the
cleansing agent to a cloth, not to the toaster oven, before cleaning.
3. To clean interior walls, use a damp cloth and a mild liquid soap solution
or a spray solution on a sponge. Never use harsh abrasives or corrosive
products. These could damage the oven surface. Never use Brillo pads,
etc. on interior of oven.
4. To remove crumbs, slide out the crumb tray and discard crumbs. Wipe
clean and replace. Crumb tray is dishwasher-safe. To remove baked-on
grease, soak the tray in hot sudsy water or use nonabrasive cleaners.
Never operate the oven without the crumb tray in place.
5. Wire rack, broiling pan and drip tray are dishwasher-safe. If heavily soiled,
soak in hot sudsy water or use a nylon scouring pad or nylon brush.
IMPORTANT
After cooking greasy foods and after your oven has cooled, always clean top
interior of oven. If this is done on a regular basis, your oven will perform like
new. Removing the grease will help to keep toasting consistent, cycle after
cycle.

small shallot (1⁄2 ounce), peeled and finely chopped
ounce fresh dill weed, finely chopped
teaspoons sugar
teaspoon kosher salt, divided
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6-ounce portions salmon fillet, skin on
tablespoon soy sauce
Place the yogurt, mustard, olive oil, shallot, dill weed, sugar, 1⁄2 teaspoon
salt, and 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Stir with a whisk to blend.
Let stand 30 minutes or longer to allow flavors to develop. The sauce may
be done up to a day ahead. Makes about 11⁄4 cups sauce.
Brush the salmon fillets with the soy sauce and sprinkle with the remaining
salt and pepper. Let sit for 15 minutes at room temperature. Place the rack
in the toaster oven in position B and preheat on the broil setting. Place the
drip pan in the broiling pan so that the fish will be about 11⁄2 to 2 inches
from the upper element. Lightly coat the broiler rack with cooking spray
and add 1⁄4 cup of water to the drip pan. Arrange the salmon fillets skin
down on the prepared pan. Place in the oven and broil with the oven door
ajar for 14 to 18 minutes; salmon should test 145°–150ºF when tested with
an instant-read thermometer. Serve hot or chilled with the Dijon-dill sauce.
*For a thicker sauce, strain the yogurt for 1 hour or longer using a yogurt
strainer or a strainer lined with a coffee filter; discard the whey (liquid).

In a small bowl, combine the cumin, sugar, salt, thyme pepper and

on a non-metallic plate, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until
20 minutes before cooking. The spice rub may be put on the meat up
to 24 hours before cooking. The longer it is on the meat, the more
intense the flavor will be.
Place the rack in position B and preheat toaster oven on broil setting,
keeping door ajar. Put 1⁄4 cup of water in the bottom of the broiler pan;
place the drip tray in the broiling pan so that the meat will be about 1 inch
from the upper element. Lightly coat the rack with cooking spray. Arrange
the meat on the broiler rack. Broil with the door ajar for 16 to 20 minutes;
turn the London broil halfway through cooking time, until meat is done to
desired taste*. Let stand for 10 minutes before carving to allow the juices to
set; the meat will continue to cook during this time. Test for appropriate
doneness with an instant-read thermometer. After the meat has rested,
slice across the grain in very thin slices to serve.

Roast the tenderloin for 15 to 18 minutes, turning after 9 minutes. While the
pork is roasting, heat the reserved marinade until it bubbles for 5 minutes;
lower heat and cook until reduced by half and thickened – this can be
served as a sauce for the pork. When pork has reached an internal temperature of 150°F when tested with an instant-read thermometer, remove it
from oven. Cover loosely and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing.

Place the rack in position B and preheat the toaster oven to 350ºF. Lightly
coat a 9-inch pie tin with cooking spray.
Beat the eggs in a medium bowl until frothy. Stir in the sugars, beat until
smooth. Stir in the melted butter. Add the flour, cocoa and salt; stir to
combine. Add the vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts; stir. Pour into the
prepared pan.
Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, until just barely set (pie will not test done in the
center – do not overbake). Remove from the oven and let cool completely
on a rack before cutting. If you wish to serve it warm, let it cool to set, then
re-warm gently for about 10 to 5 minutes at 200ºF. Cut into wedges and
serve. Very good when topped with ice cream or frozen yogurt, and a
drizzle of fudge or chocolate sauce.
Variation: Substitute milk chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter or
butterscotch chips for the chocolate chips; substitute other nuts such as
peanuts, hazelnuts or almonds.

cup chopped almonds
jar (10-ounce) raspberry preserves (about 1 cup)
Place the rack in position B and preheat the toaster oven to 325ºF. Lightly
spray a 7x11-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Place oats, flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl and
stir to blend. Add vanilla and butter, and using a pastry blender or two
forks, cut butter into dry ingredients until the mixture is evenly moist and
crumbly. Remove 1⁄2 cup of the mixture. Stir chopped nuts into one of the
half cups of the crumb mixture and reserve for topping.
Press the oatmeal mixture without the nuts evenly into the prepared
baking pan. Spread the raspberry preserves over the top. Sprinkle with
the reserved oat/nut mixture. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden.
Let cool completely in the baking pan set on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

WARRANTY
LIMITED THREE-YEAR WARRANTY
This warranty supersedes all previous warranties on the Cuisinart® Classic
Toaster Oven Broiler.
This warranty is available to consumers only. You are a consumer if you
own a Cuisinart® Classic Toaster Oven Broiler that was purchased at retail
for personal, family or household use. Except as otherwise required under
applicable state law, this warranty is not available to retailers or other
commercial purchasers or owners.
We warrant that your Cuisinart® Classic Toaster Oven Broiler will be free of
defects in material or workmanship under normal home use for three years
from the date of original purchase.
We suggest that you complete and return the enclosed product registration
card promptly to facilitate verification of the date of original purchase.
However, return of the product registration is not a condition of these
warranties.
If your Cuisinart® Classic Toaster Oven Broiler should prove to be defective
within the warranty period, we will repair it, or if we think necessary, replace it.
To obtain warranty service, please call our Consumer Service Center toll-free
at 1-800-726-0190 or write to:
Cuisinart
150 Milford Road
East Windsor, NJ 08520
To facilitate the speed and accuracy of your return, please also enclose
$10.00 for shipping and handling of the product (California residents need
only supply proof of purchase and should call 1-800-726-0190 for shipping
instructions). Please also be sure to include a return address, description of
the product defect, product serial number, and any other information pertinent
to the product’s return. Please pay by check or money order.

NOTE: For added protection and secure handling of any Cuisinart® product
that is being returned, we recommend you use a traceable, insured delivery
service. Cuisinart cannot be held responsible for in-transit damage or for
packages that are not delivered to us. Lost and/or damaged products are not
covered under warranty.
Your Cuisinart® Classic Toaster Oven Broiler has been manufactured to strict
specifications and has been designed for use with the Cuisinart® Classic
Toaster Oven Broiler accessories and replacement parts. These warranties
expressly exclude any defects or damages caused by accessories, replacement parts or repair service other than those that have been authorized
by Cuisinart.
These warranties do not cover any damage caused by accident, misuse,
shipment or other than ordinary household use.
These warranties exclude all incidental or consequential damages. Some
states do not allow the exclusion of or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the foregoing limitation may not apply to you.
CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY
California law provides that for In-Warranty Service, California residents have
the option of returning a nonconforming product (A) to the store where it was
purchased or (B) to another retail store which sells Cuisinart® products of the
same type. The retail store shall then, according to its preference, either
repair the product, refer the consumer to an independent repair facility,
replace the product, or refund the purchase price less the amount directly
attributable to the consumer’s prior usage of the product. If either of the
above two options does not result in the appropriate relief to the consumer,
the consumer may then take the product to an independent repair facility if
service or repair can be economically accomplished. Cuisinart and not the
consumer will be responsible for the reasonable cost of such service, repair,
replacement, or refund for nonconforming products under warranty.
California residents may also, according to their preference, return nonconforming products directly to Cuisinart for repair or, if necessary, replacement
by calling our Consumer Service Center toll-free at 800-726-0190. Cuisinart
will be responsible for the cost of the repair, replacement, and shipping and
handling for such nonconforming products under warranty.

BEFORE RETURNING YOUR CUISINART® PRODUCT
Important: If the nonconforming product is to be serviced by someone other
than Cuisinart’s Authorized Service Center, please remind the servicer to
call our Consumer Service Center to ensure that the problem is properly
diagnosed, the product serviced with the correct parts, and to ensure that
the product is still under warranty.
