Cuisinart Stainless Series 2-Slice Toaster



For your safety and continued enjoyment of this product, always read the instruction book carefully before using. For household use only. Cleaning and maintenance: Always allow the toaster to cool completely before cleaning. 1. Always unplug the toaster from the electrical outlet. 2. Do not use abrasive cleansers. Simply wipe the exterior with a clean damp cloth and dry thoroughly. Apply any cleansing agent to a cloth, not to the toaster, before cleaning. 3. To remove crumbs, slide out the crumb tray and discard crumbs. Wipe clean and replace. Never operate the toaster without the crumb tray in place. 4. To remove any pieces of bread remaining in the toaster, turn the toaster upside down and gently shake. Never insert any hard or sharp instruments into the slot, as this could damage the toaster and cause a safety hazard. 5. Never wrap the cord around the outside of the toaster. Use the cord storage cleats on the underside of the toaster. 6. Any other servicing should be performed by an authorized service representative. Use and care: Unwind the power cord. Check that the crumb tray is in place and that there is nothing in the toaster slot. Plug power cord into the wall outlet. 1. Insert Slice(s) of Bread: Be sure that multiple slices do not overlap and that the carriage is in the up position. 2. Set the Browning Control: Turn rotary dial to the desired position: Dial Setting - Color. 1-2 - light. 3-4 medium. 5-6 dark. Some notes on browning: Toasting is a combination of cooking and drying of the bread. Therefore, differences in moisture level from one bread to another can result in varying toasting times. For slightly dry bread, use a lower setting than you normally would. For very fresh bread or whole wheat bread, use a higher setting than normal. Breads with very uneven surfaces (such as English muffins) will require a higher toast setting. Thickly cut pieces of bread (including bagels) 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 placing into the toaster. This will help prevent fruit pieces from falling into the toaster or sticking on the guide wires in the slot. Before toasting bagels, slice each bagel into two equal halves. 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 over-toast. These breads and pastries should be warmed using the defrost button. Frozen waffles, pancakes, French toast and frozen bagels. Toaster pastries: Exercise caution with toaster pastries; the filling can become quite hot, long before the surface of the pastry becomes browned. Never leave toaster pastries unattended while toasting or warming. 3. To begin toasting: Press the carriage lever until it locks into the down position. 4. To stop toasting: When the toasting cycle is finished, the toast will be raised. If you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply press the cancel button. Tips: 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. Uneven toasting is usually due to bread slices of uneven thickness. After use, unplug your toaster from the electrical outlet. Defrost Button: The defrost feature is designed to first defrost and then toast the bread, which extends the toasting cycle slightly. 1. Insert slice(s) of bread: Be sure that multiple slices do not overlap and the carriage is in the up position. 2. Set the Browning Control. Setting 1-2: For refrigerated breads and thinner frozen items such as frozen pancakes. Setting 3-4: For toaster pastries, frozen waffles and (thin) French toast, and refrigerated bagels. Setting 5-6: For thicker frozen items such as bagels, hand-cut bread and thick French toast. 3. Press the carriage control lever until it locks into position. 4. Press the defrost button. Red LED indicates feature is activated. To stop cycle: When the defrost cycle is complete, the toaster will raise the bread. If you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply press the "Cancel" button to interrupt. After use, unplug the toaster from the electrical outlet. Reheat Button: The reheat feature allows you to reheat bread without browning or toasting. 1. Insert slice(s) of bread. Be sure that multiple slices do not overlap and the carriage is in the up position. 2. Press the carriage control lever until it locks into position. 3. Press the Reheat button. Red LED indicates feature is activated. To stop cycle: When the reheat cycle is complete, the toaster will raise the bread. If you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply press the Cancel button to interrupt. Bagel Button: The bagel feature adds extra time to the toasting cycle. 1. Insert slice(s) of bread or halved bagels. Be sure that multiple slices do not overlap and the carriage is in the up position. 2. Press the carriage control lever until it locks into position. 3. Press the bagel button. Red LED indicates feature is activated. To stop cycle: When the bagel cycle is complete, the toaster will raise the bread. If you wish to stop the cycle before it is finished, simply press the cancel button to interrupt.

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.
Save these instructions for household use only.
Special Cord Set Instructions:
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord. Longer extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
If a long 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 unintentionally.
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other).
As a safety feature to reduce the risk of electric shock, 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.
