Operation
Preparation
1 Remove all packaging and sticker
materials and dispose of them according to
the applicable local regulations.
2 Before using the appliance for the first
time, clean the appliance (See the “Cleaning
and care” section).
3 Make sure that the appliance is in an
upright position and on a stable, flat, clean,
dry and non-slip surface.
Note
When using the appliance for the first time,
smoke can develop due to production
residues. However, this does not mean the
appliance is defective. The first time you
switch it on use the appliance as you
normally would but without bread. It is
recommended to use the medium setting of
the browning control C to burn in. Ensure for
proper room ventilation.
Toasting

socket.

values of 1 and 7.
Notes
Pushing the browning control down to 1 will
give the lightest degree of browning and up
to 7 the darkest. The browning degree can
vary depending on the type of bread.
When toasting several slices of bread
consecutively, the toaster will become hotter
and therefore the bread will gradually
become darker. Therefore select an
appropriate browning degree. Let the toaster
cool down after each toasting process for
minimum 30 seconds.
The degree of browning of one slice is
darker than two slices, although the
browning control C is set to the same level.

slices out of the toaster as the metal
parts of the toaster and also the bread

the toaster off immediately by pressing the
stop button G. Pull the power plug out of the
wall socket. Let the toaster cool down
completely. Carefully try to take the bread
out of the toaster without damaging the
