TOASTING TIPS
Here are a few tips to help get the best out of your toaster.
3 2 1

Ensure your toaster is
unplugged and cool.
REMOVE CARDBOARD
INSERTS FROM THE
SLOTS BEFORE FIRST USE.
A fire may occur if incorrectly
positioned.
7
4
Place the toaster on an
open level surface. Ensure
the toaster is positioned at
least 200mm CLEAR FROM
ANY OVERHANGING
CUPBOARDS.
DO NOT STORE OR USE
YOUR TOASTER IN AN
APPLIANCE GARAGE OR
UNDER CUPBOARDS. A
fire may occur if incorrectly
positioned.
5
DO NOT STORE OR USE
YOUR TOASTER CLOSE
TO CURTAINS OR
FLAMMABLE MATERIAL.
A fire may occur if
incorrectly positioned.
6 THE CRUMB TRAY
Ensure the toaster is
positioned at least 200mm
CLEAR FROM WALLS.
08
CRUMB TRAY MUST
BE IN PLACE DURING
TOASTING.
• Different breads will toast at different rates, wholemeal bread takes longer than white bread,
fresh bread will take longer than day old bread. Remember to adjust your browning control
to allow for your particular type of bread.
• Your toaster is fitted with patented Perfect Toast Technology which calculates the
temperature of your toaster and surroundings to derive the precise toasting time. After the
first round of toast, the elements and toaster body will be heated up, subsequent rounds
will take less time to toast. You do not need to adjust your Browning Control.
• At any time during the toasting cycle you can lift the toasting lever and check the progress
of the toasting.
• Use the bagel setting to toast burger buns, bagels, muffins or tea cakes, this setting toasts
one side whilst gently warming the other.
• The thickest slice of bread that will fit in your toaster is 36mm thick. Forcing bread which
is too thick or too long into the slots will be difficult to eject once toasted and could cause
burning. If jammed, unplug and allow to cool before removing the bread.
• You may find it easier to use a ‘sandwich cage’ to toast smaller items. Inserting and removing
items will be easier (sold separately).
• You may need to reduce the Browning Control time (see page 6) when toasting one
slice. There may be a slight variation in colour between each side. Equal size, thickness and
freshness are recommended when toasting two slices. When hand cutting a fresh loaf, cut
the slices as evenly as possible. Uneven slices will toast unevenly.
• Keep elements free from breadcrumbs and broken pieces of bread. If left these may burn
out the elements (see page 16 for Cleaning & Care).
• To reheat recently made toast set the browning control to 1.
• Cancel toasting manually at any time by pressing the cancel button on the browning control knob.

SIGNATURE TOASTIE
• Medium sliced bread
• Rocket Leaves
• 2 Slices of Cheese
• Spreadable Butter
(thinly cut)
• Sliced Tomato (thinly
sliced) seasoned with Salt,
Pepper and Oregano
1. Butter the outside of two slices of bread and place one buttered side down on the cage.
2. Place one slice of cheese on the unbuttered side of the bread. Cover with a layer of seasoned tomatoes. Add a few leaves of rocket. Top with a second slice of cheese.
3. Place the other side of bread on top, buttered side facing out.
4. Toast for 2 minutes or until golden brown. Leave sandwich in the toaster for a further minute after toasting to allow cheese to melt fully.
5. Enjoy your delicious toastie.
NOTE: Ensure the buttered side is on the outside against the sandwich cage. This slows down
the toasting, allowing all the filling to heat and gives a delicious golden finish.
