17. Do not operate your appliance in an appliance garage or under a wall
cabinet. When storing in an appliance garage, always unplug the

IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using an electrical appliance, basic safety precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
1. Read all instructions.

individuals with certain disabilities.
SPECIAL CORD SET INSTRUCTIONS
5. Always unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning.
Allow to cool before cleaning or handling.
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.
6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, or after
the appliance has malfunctioned or has been dropped or damaged
in any way, or if it is not operating properly. Return the toaster to the
store or retailer where purchased for examination or repair.
If a long extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the
extension cord should 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 pulled on by
children or tripped over.
7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Cuisinart
may cause injury.
8. Do not use outdoors.
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.
9. Do not let cord hang over the edge of the table or countertop
or touch hot surfaces.

Some notes on browning
Tips
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.
• Never force foods into the toasting slot. Foods should fit freely
between the guide wires.
• 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.
• For very fresh bread or whole wheat bread, use a higher setting than
normal.
• 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.
• Uneven toasting is usually due to bread slices of uneven thickness.
• 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.
1. Insert slice(s) of bread.
2. Set the browning control
Settings 1-2
For refrigerated breads and thinner frozen items such as
frozen pancakes.
Settings 3-5
For toaster pastries, frozen waffles and (thin) French toast,
and refrigerated bagels.
Single slice toasting
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.
Settings 6-7
For thicker frozen items such as bagels, hand-cut bread and
thick French toast.

Fail-Safe
• Should the unit sense that it is over-heating it is designed to
activate a “Fail-Safe” to ensure it can cool down quickly
and be able to return to a safe, usable state.
3. Press the Defrost button. Blue LED indicates feature is
activated.
4. Press the toast button to start.
To stop cycle
When the defrost cycle is complete, the toaster will raise the bread.
If you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply press the
Cancel button to interrupt.
•
After use, unplug the toaster from the electrical outlet.
When the Fail-Safe is activated all the LCD and LED lights
will come on and the unit will sound (3) one-second audible
tones. The LCD and LED lights will remain on until the unit is
unplugged and re-plugged into the outlet.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Reheat button
The reheat feature allows you to reheat bread without browning
or toasting it.
Always allow the toaster to cool completely before cleaning.
1. Always unplug the toaster from the electrical outlet before cleaning.
1. Insert slice(s) of bread.
2. Do not use abrasive cleansers. Simply wipe the exterior with a clean
damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Apply any cleansing agent to a cloth,
not to the toaster, before cleaning.
2. Press the Reheat button. Blue LED indicates feature is activated.
3. Press the toast button to start.
3. To remove crumbs, slide out the crumb tray and discard crumbs.

tray in place.
To stop cycle
When the reheat cycle is complete, the toaster will raise the
bread. If you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply press
the Cancel button to interrupt.
4. To remove any pieces of bread remaining in the toaster, turn the
toaster upside down and gently shake. Never insert any hard or
sharp instruments into the slot, as this could damage the toaster and
cause a safety hazard.
Bagel button
The bagel feature reduces heat on one side of the toasting slot.
This toasts the cut side of the bagel slightly more than the other side.
An embossed icon located on the top of the toaster,
just above the control panel, shows you the right way
to insert your bagel. (The cut side should always face
toward the center of the toaster.)
5. Never wrap the cord around the outside of the toaster. Use the cord
storage cleats on the underside of the toaster.

representative.
1. Insert slice(s) of bread or halved bagels.
