Read these instructions before use and keep them safe. If you pass the toaster on, pass
on the instructions too.
Remove all packaging, but keep it till you’re satisfied the toaster is working.
Important safeguards
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 Don’t put your toaster in water, don’t use it in a bathroom or near water
contained in a bath-tub, basin or any other vessel, and don’t use it
2 This appliance should only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible
3 Position the toaster upright, on a stable, level, heat-resistant surface, near a power
socket, and out of reach of children.
4 Don’t use it near or below curtains or other combustible materials and watch it
while it’s hot, as bread can catch fire if overcooked.
5 The area round the toasting slots will get hot during use – don’t touch!
6 Route the cable so it doesn’t overhang and can’t be caught accidentally.
7 When using only one of the toasting slots, don’t let anything get into the other slot,
as both slots will become “live” when you lower the bread carriage handle.
8 Don’t let the toasting slots become covered during toasting.
9 If the bread carriage becomes jammed during the toasting cycle don’t try to release
it. Switch off the power socket (if appropriate), unplug the toaster, and leave it to
cool down before carefully removing the bread. Don’t use a knife, fork, or other
sharp implement – you’ll damage the elements.
10 Don’t toast “buttered” items or try to make toasted sandwiches in the toaster, as
this will create a fire hazard.
11 Don’t use torn, curled up, or misshapen slices of bread, as these may jam the eject
12 Unplug the toaster after use, and let it cool down fully before cleaning and storing
13 Clean the crumbs out of your toaster frequently, to avoid a build up of crumbs. This
is unhygienic and could cause a fire hazard.
14 Don’t use the toaster unless the crumb tray is closed.
15 Don’t connect this appliance to an external timer or remote control system.
16 Keep the toaster and cable away from hotplates, hobs and burners.
17 Don’t use the toaster if it’s damaged or malfunctions. If the cable is damaged, the
toaster must be returned, in order to avoid hazard.
household use only
before using for the first time
Before making toast for the first time, set the browning control to 6, and operate the
toaster without bread, to burn off any dust etc. from the new elements. This may smell
a bit, but it’s nothing to worry about. Ensure the room is well ventilated.
toasting bread
1 Sit the toaster upright, on a stable, level, heat resistant surface, clear of curtains
and other combustible materials. Don’t put it on or near anything that could be
damaged even by moderate sources of heat.
2 Plug the cable into the power socket and, if necessary, switch the socket on.
3 Put bread into the toasting slots (maximum thickness of bread 28mm 18 inch).
4 Turn the browning control to the required setting (1 = light, 6 = dark).
5 Press the bread carriage handle down fully – it won’t lock down unless the toaster is
connected to the electricity supply.
6 When it’s done, the toast will pop up, and the elements will turn off automatically.
eject 5
To stop the toaster before it’s finished, press the 5 button. The toast will pop up, and
the elements will turn off.
reheating toast m
There’s no need to adjust the browning control. Insert the toast, lower the bread
carriage handle, then press the m button. The light at the front of the button will come
on, the toast will be given a short burst of heat, then pop up. You must only reheat
plain, “unbuttered” toast.
frozen bread f
This feature takes the guesswork out of toasting frozen bread.
Leave the browning control at your favoured setting, insert the frozen bread, lower the
bread carriage handle, then press the f button. The light at the front of the button will
come on, and the toasting time will be altered automatically to give the same degree
of browning you get with unfrozen bread.
extra lift
After toasting small items (bagels, crumpets, etc.) the bread carriage handle may be
raised further, to allow them to be removed more easily.
hints and tips
• When toasting more than one slice of bread, use slices of similar size, thickness and
• Old (yesterday’s) bread makes crisper toast than fresh bread, as it contains less
• Old or thin bread will cook faster than fresh or thick bread, so use a lower setting.
• Don’t use torn, curled up, or misshapen slices of bread as these may jam the
ejection mechanism and could catch fire.
• Sweet bread products (tea cakes, fruit loaf, etc.) brown much more quickly than
ordinary bread, so should be toasted on a lighter setting.
If the bread jams in the toaster, the contacts will open and turn off the power to the
elements. You should still unplug the toaster and leave it to cool down before trying to
release the jam.
care and maintenance
First – unplug the toaster and let it cool down fully.
Wipe the outside with a soft damp cloth. If necessary, use a little washing-up liquid.
Don’t let anything enter the slots, as this might damage the elements.
Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaning agents or solvents.
Don’t put the toaster in water or any other liquid.
Crumbs will collect in the base of the toaster. Letting them build up is unhygienic, and
could cause a fire hazard, so remove them frequently.
Unplug the toaster and let it cool down fully. Press and release R the crumb tray to
unlock it. Pull it out and empty it. Wipe it with a damp cloth, dry thoroughly, then slide
it back into the toaster. Press and release R to close.
Don’t use the toaster unless the crumb tray is in place and closed.
The product must be earthed. It has a 13A BS1362 fuse in a 13A BS1363

If in doubt, call an electrician.
Don’t use a non-rewireable/moulded plug unless the fuse cover is in
place. If you remove the plug, dispose of it.
The product isn’t user-serviceable. If it’s not working, read the instructions, check the
plug fuse and main fuse/circuit breaker. If it’s still not working, consult your retailer. If
that doesn’t solve the problem:
