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 This toaster should only be used by or under the supervision of a responsible adult.
Use and store the toaster out of reach of children.
2 Don’t put your toaster in liquid, 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
3 Sit the toaster upright, on a stable, level, heat-resistant surface, near a wall 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 a pair of 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 a bread carriage gets jammed during the toasting cycle don’t try to release it. ,
Switch off the wall socket, if appropriate, and unplug the toaster. Leave it to cool
before carefully removing the bread. Don’t use a knife, fork, or other sharp
implement – you’ll damage the elements.
10 Don’t try to force oversized bread into a toasting slot, it may jam and create a fire
hazard. If the bread is too big to fit easily in the slot, trim it to size before toasting.
11 Don’t toast “buttered” items or try to make toasted sandwiches in the toaster, as
this will create a fire hazard.
12 Don’t use torn, curled up, or misshapen slices of bread, as these may jam the eject
13 Unplug the toaster after use, and let it cool down fully before cleaning and storing
14 Clean the crumbs out of your toaster frequently, to avoid a build up of crumbs. This
is unhygienic and could cause a fire hazard.
15 Don’t use the toaster unless the crumb trays are fitted and closed.
16 Don’t connect this appliance to an external timer or remote control system.
17 Keep the toaster and cable away from hotplates, hobs and burners.
18 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
1 Set both browning controls to the highest setting (6).
2 Operate the toaster without bread, to cure the new elements. This may smell a bit,
but it’s nothing to worry about. Ensure the room is well ventilated.
toasting bread
3 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.
4 Plug the cable into the wall socket. If necessary, switch the socket on.
5 Put bread into the toasting slots (maximum thickness 25mm ).
6 You can treat the left and right pairs of toasting slots as two independent 2-slice
7 Turn the browning control to the required setting (1 = light, 6 = dark).
8 Press the bread carriage handle down fully – it won’t lock down unless the toaster is
connected to the electricity supply.
9 When it’s done, the toast will pop up, and the elements will turn off.
, If you’re using both pairs of slots, they’ll probably pop up at different times.
eject 5
10 To stop a pair of slots before the toasting cycle has finished, press the 5 button
next to that pair of slots. The toast will pop up, and the elements will turn off. This
will not affect the other pair of slots.
frozen bread f
11 This feature takes the guesswork out of toasting frozen bread.
12 Leave the browning control at your favoured setting, insert the frozen bread, lower
the bread carriage handle, then press the f button next to that pair of slots.
13 The light by 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.
caution don’t try to defrost bread – you’ll probably wreck the toaster
a) toasting frozen bread changes ice to steam, which escapes via the toasting slots
b) defrosting bread on a low setting changes ice to water, which drips into the
toaster, over the electronics and maybe the elements, causing mayhem
reheating toast m
14 There’s no need to adjust the browning control. Insert the toast, lower the bread
carriage handle, then press the m button. The light by the button will come on, the
toast will be given a short burst of heat, then pop up.
15 You must only reheat plain, “unbuttered” toast.
hints and tips
16 When toasting more than one slice of bread, use slices of similar size, thickness and
17 Old (yesterday’s) bread contains less moisture, so makes crisper toast.
18 Old or thin bread cooks faster than fresh or thick bread – use a lighter setting.
19 Sweet bread products (tea cakes, fruit loaf, etc.) brown much more quickly than
ordinary bread, so should be toasted on a lighter setting.
20 Clean the crumbs out of your toaster frequently, to avoid a build up of crumbs. This
is unhygienic and could cause a fire hazard.
21 Unplug the toaster and let it cool down.
22 Pull the crumb trays out from underneath the rear of the toaster.
23 Empty them
24 Wipe with a damp cloth, dry, then replace them in the toaster.
25 Don’t use the toaster unless the crumb trays are fitted and closed.
