When using an electrical appliance, basic safety precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
17.Do not operate your appliance in an appliance garage or under a
wall cabinet. When storing in an appliance garage, always unplug
the unit from the electrical outlet. Not doing so could create a risk
of fire, especially if the appliance touches the walls of the garage
or the door touches the unit as it closes.
1.Read all instructions.
2.Always unplug from outlet when the appliance is not in use,
before putting on or taking out parts and before cleaning. Allow
to cool before cleaning or handling.
4. To protect against electrical shock, do not place any part of the toaster in water or other liquids. See instructions for cleaning.
5.This appliance should not be used by or near children, or
individuals with certain disabilities.
3. Do not touch hot surfaces, use handles or knobs.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Extension cords
may be used if care is exercised in their use.
6.Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, or after
the appliance has malfunctioned or has been dropped or damaged
in any way, or if it is not operating properly. Return appliance to the
nearest authorized service facility for examination, repair, or electrical
or mechanical adjustment.
If an extension cord is used, the marked electrical rating of the
extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance, and the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not
drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by
children or tripped over.
7.The use of accessory attachments not recommended by Cuisinart
may cause injury.
8. Do not use outdoors.
NOTICE: This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than
the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet
only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the
plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not
attempt to defeat this safety feature.
9.Do not let cord hang over the edge of the table or countertop
or touch hot surfaces.
10.Do not place toaster on or near a hot gas or electric burner or
in a heated oven.
11. Do not use this toaster for other than intended use.
12.Oversize foods, metal foil packages or utensils must not be inserted
in the toaster, as they may involve a risk of fire or electric shock.
13.A fire may occur if the toaster is covered or touching flammable
materials, such as curtains, draperies or walls and the like when in
operation. Do not operate under wall cabinets.

Some notes on browning
Toasting is a combination of cooking and drying the bread. Therefore,
differences in moisture level from one bread to another can result in
varying toasting times.
•Never force foods into the toasting slot. Foods should fit freely
between the guide wires.
•Do not place buttered breads or pastries with fillings or frostings in the
toaster, as this could create a fire hazard.
• For slightly dry bread, use a lower setting than you normally would.
•Uneven toasting is usually due to bread slices of uneven thickness.
• For very fresh bread or whole wheat bread, use a higher setting than
• Breads with very uneven surfaces (such as English muffins) will require
a higher toast setting.
• Thickly cut pieces of bread (including bagels and English muffins) will
take longer to toast, sometimes significantly longer, since more
moisture must be evaporated from the bread before toasting can occur.
Very thick pieces may require two cycles.
• When toasting raisin or other fruit breads, remove any loose raisins, etc.
from the surface of the bread before putting into the toaster. This will
help prevent fruit pieces from falling into the toaster or sticking to the
guide wires in the slot.
• Before toasting bagels, slice each bagel into two equal halves.
•After use, unplug your toaster from the electrical outlet.
Defrost button
The Defrost button is designed to first defrost and then toast the bread,
which extends the toasting cycle slightly.

Settings 1–2
For refrigerated breads and thinner frozen items such as

Single slice toasting
If you are toasting a single slice of bread, set the heat selector to a lighter
setting than you normally would. The toaster is designed to heat the
whole toasting chamber for two slices. By lowering the heat for a single
slice, you won't overtoast.
Settings 6–7
For thicker frozen items such as bagels, hand-cut bread and
thick French toast.
