1.Read all instructions.
2. Always unplug from outlet when not in use and before
cleaning. Allow to cool before cleaning or handling.
3. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
4.To protect against electrical shock, do not place any part
of the toaster in water or other liquid. See instructions for
5.Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used
by or near children.
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 nearest Cuisinart Repair Center for
examination, repair or mechanical or electrical adjustment.
7. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Cuisinart may cause injury.
8. Do not use outdoors.
9. Do not let cord hang over the edge of the table or countertop or touch hot surfaces.
10. Do not place toaster on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated oven.
11. Do not use this toaster for other than intended use.
12.Oversize foods, metal foil packages or utensils must not
be inserted in the toaster, as they may involve a risk of fire
or electric shock.
13.A fire may occur if the toaster is covered or touching
flammable materials, such as curtains, draperies or walls
when in operation. Do not operate under
wall cabinets.
14. Do not attempt to dislodge food when the toaster is plugged into electrical outlet.
15. To avoid possibility of fire, do not leave toaster unattended
during use.
16. To disconnect, push the cancel button, then remove plug
from wall.
18. D
o 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.
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.
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 unintentionally.
NOTICE:This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider
than the other).
As a safety feature to reduce the risk of electric shock, 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.

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.
1. Insert Slice(s) of Bread
Be sure that multiple slices do not overlap and that the carriage is in the up position.
These breads and pastries should be warmed using the
Defrost button
2. Set the Browning Control
Turn rotary dial to the desired position:

Some notes on browning
Toasting is a combination of cooking and drying of the bread.
Therefore, differences in moisture level from one bread to another
can result in varying toasting times.
3. To Begin Toasting
Press the carriage lever until it locks into the down position.
Toaster pastries
Exercise caution with toaster pastries; the filling can become quite
hot, long before the surface of the pastry becomes browned. Never
leave toaster pastries unattended while toasting or warming.
• For slightly dry bread, use a lower setting than you normally
• For very fresh bread or whole wheat bread, use a higher setting
than normal.
To Stop Toasting

you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply press the Cancel button.
• Never force foods into the toasting slot. Foods should fit freely
between the guide wires.
• Breads with very uneven surfaces (such as English muffins) will
require a higher toast setting.
• Do not place buttered breads or pastries with fillings or frostings
in the toaster, as this could create a fire hazard.
• 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.
• Uneven toasting is usually due to bread slices of uneven
• After use, unplug your toaster from the electrical outlet.
• When toasting raisin or other fruit breads, remove any loose raisins, etc. from the surface of the bread before placing into the
toaster. This will help prevent fruit pieces from falling into the
toaster or sticking on the guide wires in the slot.
• Before toasting bagels, slice each bagel into two equal halves.

California law provides that for In-Warranty Service, California residents
have the option of returning a nonconforming product (A) to the store
where it was purchased or (B) to another retail store which sells Cuisinart
products of the same type. The retail store shall then decide to either
repair the product, refer the consumer to an independent repair facility,
replace the product, or refund the purchase price less the amount directly
attributable to the consumer’s prior usage of the product. If either of the
above two options does not result in the appropriate relief to the consumer,

service or repair can be economically accomplished. Cuisinart and not the
consumer will be responsible for the reasonable cost of such service, repair,
replacement, or refund for nonconforming products under warranty.
