SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Your toaster needs no special care other than cleaning. If servicing becomes necessary, return appliance to The West
Bend Company. See Warranty section in this booklet for service details. Do not attempt to repair it yourself.
For household use only.
WARNING: To prevent personal injury or property damage caused by fire, always unplug this and other appliances
when not in use.
SPECIAL NOTE: This booklet contains instructions for 2-slice and 4-slice toaster models. Be sure to follow the
correct care and use instructions for the model you have.
Electric Cord Statement
Caution: Your Toaster has a short cord
as a safety precaution to prevent personal
injury or property damage resulting from
pulling, tripping, or becoming entangled
with the cord. Do not allow children to be
near or use this appliance without close
adult supervision. If you must use a
longer cordset, or an extension cord when
using appliance, the cord must be
arranged so it will not drape or hang over
the edge of a countertop, tabletop or
surface area where it can be pulled on by
children or tripped over. To prevent
electric shock, personal injury or fire, the
electrical rating of the extension cord you
use must be the same or more than the
wattage of the appliance (wattage is
marked on underside of appliance).
To avoid circuit overload, do not operate another high wattage appliance on the same circuit.
CAUTION: To prevent burns or personal injury, always use protective hot pads or oven mitts when touching or
handling hot toaster. Appliance surfaces are hot during and after use.
CLEAN BEFORE USING – Both Models
Wipe outside of taster with damp soapy cloth, then dry with a soft cloth. Your toaster is now ready to use.

WARNING: To prevent personal injury, electric shock or property damage, NEVER INSERT METAL FORK
OR OTHER METAL OBJECTS INTO TOASTING SLOTS.
CAUTION: To prevent personal injury or electric shock, do not place anything in toaster to remove food while
