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:

Some notes on browning
Toasting is a combination of cooking and drying the bread. Therefore,
differences in moisture level from one bread to another can result in
varying toasting times.
• Do not place buttered breads or pastries with fillings or frostings in
the toaster, as this could create a fire hazard.
• For slightly dry bread, use a lower setting than you normally would.
• Uneven toasting is usually due to bread slices of uneven thickness.
• For very fresh bread or whole wheat bread, use a higher setting than
• Breads with very uneven surfaces (such as English muffins) will
require a higher toast setting.
• Thickly cut pieces of bread (including bagels) will take longer to toast,
sometimes significantly longer, since more moisture must be evaporated from the bread before toasting can occur. Very thick pieces may
require two cycles.
• When toasting raisin or other fruit breads, remove any loose raisins,
etc. from the surface of the bread before putting into the toaster. This
will help prevent fruit pieces from falling into the toaster or sticking to
the guide wires in the slot.
• Before toasting bagels, slice each bagel into two equal halves.
• After use, unplug your toaster from the electrical outlet.
Defrost button
The Defrost button is designed to first defrost and then toast the bread,
which extends the toasting cycle slightly.

If you are toasting a single slice of bread, set the heat selector to a
lighter setting than you normally would. The toaster is designed to heat
the whole toasting chamber for two slices. By lowering the heat for a
single slice, you won’t overtoast.
