Important Safeguards for Electrical Appliances

• Place the appliance near a suitable wall power socket to connect the appliance directly to a protected mains power supply with protective conductor (earth/ground) connected properly.

Ensure that the voltage rating of your mains power supply corresponds to the voltage requirements of the appliance (220/240 V, 50 Hz, AC, rated for 16 A). Exercise caution, when using an extension cord. The extension cord must be rated for 16 A. Do not use a multi socket

outlet.

The installation of a residual current safety switch with a maximum rated residual operating current of 30 mA in the supplying electrical circuit is recommended. If in doubt, contact your electrician for further information.

• Always handle the power cord with care. The power cord may never be knotted, twisted or squeezed. Do not pull or strain the power cord. Do not wind the power cord around the appliance. Do not let the plug or power cord hang over the edge of the table or counter. Take care that the power cord will not get tangled up, and no one will pull the appliance by the power cord, especially when young children are near. Always grasp the plug to disconnect the appliance from the power outlet. Do not touch the plug or appliance with wet hands, when the plug is connected to the power supply.

• Always switch off (cancel button X) and unplug the appliance when not in use and before moving or cleaning the appliance. Do not leave the appliance unattended while con-

nected to the power supply.

• Do not place the appliance and/or the power cord on or near hot surfaces (heater, gas burner, grill or oven, or even hot parts of the appliance). Do not place the appliance on the power cord. If the power cord warms up during operation or is likely to be damaged, it must be replaced by an authorised service centre. Do not attempt to repair the power cord!

First use

WARNING: DO NOT let young children play with the appliance, or any part of it, or the packaging!

It is important to carefully remove all packaging and shipping materials as well as any pricetags, but do not remove the model label on the bottom of the appliance. Ensure that there are no foreign objects (e.g. packaging) in the slots, before operating the appliance.

Unpack the appliance carefully and check, if there are any parts damaged or missing.

Tip: The carriage lever engages in the operating position only, when the toaster is connected to the power supply.

When using the toaster for the first time, you may notice a fine smoke haze, because of the first heating of some of the components. There is no need for concern. To prevent smell and taste of your food from being affected, you should heat the appliance on browning level 6 before placing any foodstuffs in the slots (see: Operation). If the burnt smell occurs again on later use, clean the toaster (see: Cleaning). If the burnt smell persists stubbornly even after thoroughly cleaning, return the appliance to an authorized service centre for examination and repair.

Operation

WARNING: Before operation, always ensure that there are no foreign objects in the slots of the appliance. NEVER poke in the slots with any foreign objects (e.g. knives, cooking utensils) or your fingers to avoid injuries or damage due to high temperatures, fire or electric shock or damage to the internal mechanism of the toaster or the heating elements.

DO NOT attempt to dislodge jammed food when the appliance is in opera-

tion. If food becomes stuck in the appliance, switch Off (via the cancel button X) the appliance, disconnect the plug from the power supply and wait for the appliance to cool before attempting to remove the food. DO NOT use violence when removing jammed food to avoid damage to the internal mechanism or the heating elements. When removing foodstuffs immediately after toasting, be aware that the foodstuffs are very hot.

Note: Always ensure that the crumb tray is in place before operating the toaster. Otherwise crumps may become charred on the bottom of the toaster and stick to the surfaces.

The bun warmer rack is intended only for warming up rolls and buns as a whole.

For toasting bread slices and halved bagels in the toasting slots, the bun warmer rack may not be placed on the toaster.

1. Make the toaster ready for use.

Place the toaster on a suitable surface. For toasting bread slices or halved buns/bagels, remove the bun warmer rack from the toaster. Ensure that the crumb tray is inserted properly on the back of the toaster. (See Cleaning) Insert the plug in a suitable wall power socket. (See Important Safeguards for Electrical Appliances)

Toasting Bread Slices

2. Using a sharp knife, cut the food (bread or similar bakery produce) in slices of even thickness and appropriate size: max. 12 x 12 cm; 0.5 to 2.5 cm thick. Try to get a smooth cut and remove the crumbs.

3. Insert a slice of bread in each slot of the toaster.

4. Turn the browning control dial to the desired browning: 1 (light) to 6 (dark). For the first use, it is recommended to select a medium browning level (3 – 4; see: Tips for Best Results).

5. Press the carriage lever down gently until it engages in the operating position. The red operation indicator illuminates (above the cancel button), and the toasting starts.

21

Tip: The carriage lever will only engage in the operating position when the toaster is connected to the power supply.

The power will automatically turn off after the heating period is completed and the carriage lever will return to the idle position. Toasting can be stopped manually at any time by pressing the cancel button (X).

6. Carefully remove the toasted slices in which please keep in mind that just toasted foodstuffs are very hot. For better access, you can lift up the carriage lever for ca. 2 cm.

CAUTION: Always ensure that the toaster is disconnected from the power supply when not in use.

7. When you finished toasting, unplug the toaster, let it cool down to room temperature, and clean the toaster. (See: Cleaning)

Toasting Frozen Foodstuffs Using the Defrost Button

The defrost function enhances the toasting time for toasting frozen bread without prior thawing.

1. Prepare the toaster for operation. (See Toasting Bred Slices)

2. Carefully press down the carriage lever until it engages in the operating position.

3. Thereafter, immediately press the defrost button. The power indicator of the button illuminates until toasting is done. Thereafter, the carriage lever returns to the idle position and the toaster switches back to normal operation automatically.

Warming Cold Toast Using the Reheat Function

The reheat function shortens the toasting time for warming cold toast.

4. Prepare the toaster for operation. (See Toasting Bred Slices)

5. Carefully press down the carriage lever until it engages in the operating position.

6. Thereafter, immediately press the reheat button. The power indicator of the button illuminates until toasting is done. Thereafter, the carriage lever returns to the idle position and the toaster switches back to normal operation automatically.

Toasting Halved Buns on One Side Using the Bagel Function

You can heat the two sides of your foodstuffs differently using the bagel function that activates more heating power for the heating elements in the centre strip than for the elements on the outer sides of the slots. Use the bagel function for crisping up halved rolls, with the soft inner side of the sliced rolls facing to the centre strip of the toaster.

1. Cut the buns or bagels into halves using a sharp knife, and remove all loose crumbs.

Important: Ensure that the halves are up to a maximum of 2.5 cm thick; otherwise the buns/ bagels could jam in the slots.

2. Place one cut half in each slot.

Note: The cut side that is to be toasted must face towards the inner heating elements that are between the two toaster slots. The other side will be gently warmed.

3. Press the carriage lever down, and thereafter, immediately press the bagel button to start this function.

The power indicator above the bagel button illuminates until toasting is done. Thereafter, the carriage lever returns to the idle position and the toaster switches back to normal operation automatically.

22

Using the Bun Warmer Rack

The bun warmer rack is intended for warming up buns and rolls in a whole.

Note: Do not place the buns or any other objects directly on the toaster to avoid overheating.

WARNING: Do not touch the metal parts of the bun warmer rack during and/or immediately after operation, as the bun warmer rack will become

very hot during use. If you wish to remove the bun warmer rack, do so with care using the grey thermally insulated handles on each side. Do not place the hot bun warmer rack on or near heat-sensitive surfaces. Let the toaster and all parts of the toaster cool down for at least 10 minutes, before moving, cleaning, and storing.

Do not warm up foodstuffs that have liquid content or any ingredients that may melt and/or drip into the toaster when hot. When removing the foodstuffs from the toaster, be aware that just toasted foodstuffs are very hot.

1. Place the bun warme rack on the toaster with the crosswise running wires upwards (see figure).

2. Adjust the browning control dial to the required setting. (See Tips for Best Results)

3. Place up to 2 (whole) buns on the bun warmer rack. The buns may not contain any ingredients that may melt when heated and/or drip.

Tip: To avoid that the buns get charred at the surface, just moisten the buns a little immediately before toasting. Doing so, ensure that no water will drip into the toaster.

4. Gently press the carriage lever down to start.

The power indicator above the cancel button (X) illuminates until toasting is done. Thereafter, the toaster switches OFF automatically.

• You may cancel the toasting process at any time; to do so simply press the cancel button (X).

• The required browning level depends on your special liking and the type and freshness of the toasted bread slices, cakes and pastries. For example: a short toasting time

(low browning level) is sufficient for toasting raisin pastry and fine white bread; but for toasting rye bread you must select a higher browning level to get a similar result.

• You can crisp up bagels and rolls by cutting the rolls in halves, using a sharp knife, and activating the bagel function. Ensure that the slices are max. 2.5 cm thick and will

23

not jam in the slots. (See: Toasting Halved Buns on One Side Using the Bagel Function)

Alternatively, to toast rolls as a whole, place the bun warmer rack on the toaster and then place the rolls on the bun warmer rack.

• Small foodstuffs may be removed easier by using the lifting function (lifting the carriage lever ca. 2 cm above the idle position).

• Ensure to make an even and smooth cut. Use a sharp bread knife for cutting. Remove crumbs and protruding rims, especially when crisping up halved buns.

WARNING: Never insert your fingers in the slots. Always switch off and unplug the appliance, and wait for the appliance to cool, before removing any jammed bread or crumbs.

• If foodstuffs stick or jam in the slots, switch off (via the cancel button X) and unplug the toaster, and let the toaster cool down. Than remove the bread slices carefully and without violence to avoid damage to the heating elements or internal mechanism.

• It is good advice to remove crumbs from the crumb tray after every use to avoid crumbs becoming charred and sticking on the crumb tray (see Cleaning). Always ensure that the

crumb tray is installed properly before using the toaster. Keep the toaster always clean, as it comes in contact with food.

• The toaster will automatically switch back to normal operation after using the special functions (defrost, reheat, or bagel).

• The bun warmer rack can also be used to serve the toast. Just place the bread slices vertically between the crosswise running wires.

Cleaning

WARNING: Always switch off (via the cancel button X), unplug the appliance, and wait until the appliance is completely cool before removing the crumb tray and/or cleaning or moving the appliance.

DO NOT immerse the toaster or power cord in water or any other liquids or pour any liquid over the appliance. DO NOT let any liquid be spilled on or under the toaster to avoid the risk of electric shock and/or fire.

DO NOT place the toaster or any part of it in an automatic dishwasher!

DO NOT use abrasive cleaners or any aggressive liquids, solvents or detergents as they may damage the finish of the toaster. DO NOT poke around in the toasting slots with any objects or your fingers to avoid damage to the internal mechanism and/or the heating elements. DO

NOT use violence.

1. Switch off the toaster via the cancel button (X) and unplug and let the toaster cool down to room temperature.

2. Carefully remove any residues of the toasted foodstuffs completely.

In doing so, ensure not to damage the internal mechanism or heating elements of the toaster, especially if foodstuffs are jammed within the slots.

3. Pull out the crumb tray at the back of the toaster by the handle, remove the crumbs and clean the crumb tray.

4. You may use lukewarm dish-water for cleaning the crumb tray and bun warmer rack.

Thereafter, thoroughly dry these parts and let dry naturally for about half an hour.

24

5. Wipe the exterior of the toaster with a soft dry cloth.

In most cases, this is sufficient, but if there are stains on the housing of the toaster, you may wipe the exterior of the toaster with a soft damp cloth.

Ensure that no liquids drip on the toaster. Thoroughly dry the housing of the toaster thereafter.

CAUTION: Do not insert the crumb tray, when it is still wet. Always ensure that the crumb tray is properly installed before using the toaster again.

6. Insert the crumb tray in the slot at the back of the toaster and push it in gently. Only the knob of the crumb tray may protrude.

Storage

WARNING: Always unplug the toaster, when it is not in use. Always wait until the toaster is completely cool before storing. Do not wind the power cord around the toaster!

To move the toaster, grasp it with both hands on the side panels. Always place the toaster on a stable, clean, and dry surface, where it is save from inadmissible strain (e.g. fall, shock, frost) and out of reach of young children. Do not place any hard or heavy objects on the toaster.
