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 nonslip 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 D to burn in. Ensure for
proper room ventilation.
Toasting frozen bread
To toast frozen bread, place the bread into
the bread slots and select the desired
browning Setting. Press the carriage control
lever down until it clicks into place then press
the Frozen Button.
Reheating toast
The toaster allows you to reheat toast
without additional toasting. To reheat, place
toast into bread slots, lower the carriage
control lever until it clicks into place and
press the Reheat Button.
In the unlikely event that the bread or
crumpet becomes jammed, switch the
toaster off at the power outlet, remove the
plug from the supply socket and carefully
ease the bread out of the toaster, ensuring
that you do not damage the element..
Toasting
Insert the plug into a suitable mains supply
socket and turn the power on.
Place up to two slices of bread, muffins, or
bagels into bread slots.
Select the desired browning setting, from
No.1 to No.7 on the browning control knob.
(No.1-lightest, No.7-darkest).
When using the toaster for the first time we
suggest you toast on number 3. Varying
types of bread and personal preference may
require a different browning setting.
Press the carriage control lever down until it
clicks into place. Toasting cycle will
automatically commence. Please note: if the
toaster is not plugged in and switched on at
the power point the carriage control lever will
not click into place.
The toaster turns off when the desired toast
colour is achieved and automatically raises
the toast. The toasting process can be
stopped at any time by pressing the cancel
button.
