BROWNING CONTROL
The browning control regulates how much
the bread is toasted—in other words, the
colour of the toast. Lower settings produce
lighter toast and higher settings produce
darker toast.
When setting the browning control,
remember that dry or thin slices of bread
will toast quicker and require a lower
setting. Moist or thick slices of bread will
require a higher setting.
CANCEL BUTTON
The toasting process can be stopped at
any time by pressing the cancel button.
HIGH LIFT FEATURE
The high lift feature uses the loading
handle to help you to remove the toast.
When toasting has finished, simply lift
the loading handle upwards from its rest
position to raise the toast and make it
easier to remove.
LIFT-AND-LOOK FEATURE
The lift-and-look feature allows you to
check the progress of the toast without
cancelling the toasting process. Just lift
the loading handle up at any time during
toasting and lower it again to resume
toasting. If you find your toast is cooked to
your preference, press the cancel button to
stop further toasting.
FROZEN BREAD BUTTON
The frozen bread button allows you to toast
bread straight from the freezer. Insert the
bread into your toaster, press the loading
handle down and then press the frozen
bread button. Your toaster will extend the
toasting time to allow the bread time to
defrost. Watch the toast to ensure that it
doesn’t burn.
REHEAT FUNCTION
The reheat function will heat up toast that
has cooled or gone cold. Press the loading
handle down then press the reheat button.
4
Watch the toast to ensure that it doesn’t
burn. Don’t use the reheat function on
buttered toast.
BEFORE FIRST USE
Never force bread into the toasting
slots. Bread should fit easily into the
toasting slots. Never toast slices of
bread that have been buttered. Take
extra care when toasting items that
contain sugar, jam or preserves, as
there is a risk of the ingredients leaking
into the toaster, causing overheating.
Don’t use bent, damaged or broken
bread in your toaster as it may cause it
to jam.
Carefully remove your toaster from its box.
Remove all packaging from inside the
toasting slots.
Position your toaster on a stable, secure,
dry and level work surface away from the
edge. Bread may burn therefore do not use
the appliance near or below combustible
materials such as curtains. Never use the
toaster below wall cupboards or shelves.
Before connecting to a power source,
make sure your mains supply voltage
is the same as the one indicated on the
appliance. Connect the plug to a suitable
power outlet and make sure that the power
cord does not overhang the work surface.
When you first use your toaster, there may
be a slight odour as the heating elements
warm up for the first time. This is quite
normal and not a cause for concern. To
remove the odour, simply operate your
toaster for the first time without any bread
in it.
USING YOUR TOASTER
1. Set the level of toasting using the
browning control. The higher the
number selected, the darker the toast
will be.
2. Place the bread into the toasting slots.
You can toast one, two, three or four
slices of bread but only place a single
slice in each slot. Press the loading
handle down until it latches. The bread
will be lowered into the toaster and
toasting will begin.
The loading handle will not latch if
your toaster is not connected to the
mains supply, and may not latch if the
browning control is set to its minimum
or lowest setting.
3. When toasting has finished, the loading
handle will rise and the toasted bread
can be removed. You can lift the
loading handle upwards beyond its rest
position to help you remove the toast.
4. If the toast is not done enough it can
be toasted again. Turn the browning
control to a lower setting and keep a
careful eye on the toast to ensure that it
doesn’t burn.
5. Toasting can be stopped at any time by
pressing the cancel button.
TOASTING TIPS
• Toasting is a combination of drying
and cooking the bread and, because
moisture levels differ from one bread to
another, toasting times can vary.
• For slightly dry bread, use a lower
setting than normal.
• For fresh bread or whole wheat bread,
use a higher setting than normal.
• Bread which has a very uneven surface
will require a higher setting.
• Thicker cut pieces of bread (including
crumpets) will take longer to toast—
sometimes significantly longer. This
is because more moisture must be
evaporated from the bread before
toasting can occur. Very thick pieces of
bread may require two toasting cycles.
• When toasting raisin or other fruit
breads, remove any loose raisins or
fruit from the surface of the bread
before putting it into your toaster. This
will help prevent fruit pieces from falling
into your toaster or sticking to the guard
wires in the toasting slot.
SINGLE SLICE TOASTING
If you are toasting a single slice of bread,
set the browning control to a lower setting
than normal. By using a lower setting when
toasting a single slice of bread, it will not
be over toasted.
IF YOUR TOASTER JAMS
Never use a knife or any other
utensil or implement to remove jammed
bread. Never insert your fingers into the
bread slots.
1. Switch the toaster off at the mains
supply socket and unplug it.
2. Allow the toaster to completely cool
down.
3. Carefully ease the bread out of the
toaster being careful not to damage the
heating element.
CLEANING
Always switch off, unplug and allow
the toaster to cool down before moving,
cleaning or storing. Never immerse the
toaster or power cord and plug in water
or any other liquid.
• Clean the outside of your toaster with a
damp cloth then dry thoroughly.
• Never use harsh, abrasive or caustic
cleaners.
CRUMB REMOVAL
It is important that crumbs are not
allowed to build up inside your toaster.
Excess crumbs are unhygienic and
could catch fire.
Crumbs can be removed by sliding the
crumb tray out from the bottom of your
toaster. You can then tip the crumbs
out. Always make sure that your toaster
has completely cooled down and is
disconnected from the mains supply before
removing crumbs. Never use your toaster
without the crumb tray fitted. Always
replace the crumb tray before using your
toaster.
