The browning control regulates how much the bread is toasted—in other words, the colour of the toast.
Lower settings produce lighter toast and higher settings produce darker toast.
When setting the browning control, remember that dry or thin slices of bread will toast quicker and require a lower setting. Moist or thick slices of bread will require a higher setting


The toasting process can be stopped at any time by pressing the cancel button.


The high lift feature uses the loading handle to help you to remove the toast. When toasting has finished, simply lift the loading handle upwards from its rest position to raise the toast and make it easier to remove.


The frozen bread function allows you to toast bread straight from the freezer. Insert the bread into your toaster, press the loading handle down and then press the frozen bread button. Your toaster will extend the toasting time to allow the bread time to defrost. Watch the toast to ensure that it doesn’t burn.


The reheat function will heat up toast that has cooled or gone cold. Press the loading handle down then press the reheat button. Keep a careful eye on the toast to ensure that it doesn’t burn. Don’t use the reheat function on buttered toast.


Always use bread slots 1 and 2 when toasting one or two slices of bread. The   symbol above the loading handle indicates that this should be the first handle to be engaged.


When toasting more than two slices of bread, use slots 3 and 4 in addition to slots 1 and 2. Lower the handle marked  first, then lower the handle marked . Loading handle will not latch unless loading handle is already in the latched position.


Never force bread into the toasting slots. Bread should fit easily into the toasting slots. Never toast slices of bread that have been buttered. Take  extra care when toasting items that contain sugar, jam or preserves, as there is a risk of the ingredients leaking into the toaster, causing overheating. Don’t use bent, damaged or broken bread in your toaster as it may cause it to jam.

Carefully remove your toaster from its box. Remove all packaging from inside the toasting slots.
Position your toaster on a stable, secure, dry and level work surface away from the edge. Bread may burn therefore do not use the appliance near or below combustible materials such as curtains. Never use the toaster below wall cupboards or shelves.
Before connecting to a power source, make sure your mains supply voltage is the same as the one indicated on the appliance. Connect the plug to a suitable power outlet and make sure that the power cord does not overhang the work surface.
When you first use your toaster, there may be a slight odour as the heating elements warm up for the first time. This is quite normal and not a cause for concern. To remove the odour, simply operate your toaster for the first time without any bread in it.


  1. Set the level of toasting using the browning control. The higher the number selected, the darker the toast will be.
  2. Place the bread into the toasting slots. You can toast one, two, three or four slices of bread.
    If you are toasting one or two slices, place them into the right hand pair of slots. Press the loading handle down until it latches. The bread will be lowered into the toaster and toasting will begin.
    The loading handle will not latch if you are toasting one or two slices of bread and they are placed in the left hand slots or if your toaster is not connected to the mains supply.
  3. When toasting has finished, the loading handle will rise and the toasted bread can be removed.
    You can lift the loading handle upwards beyond its rest position to help you remove the toast.
  4. If the toast is not done enough it can be toasted again. Turn the browning control to a lower setting and watch the toast to ensure that it doesn’t burn.
  5. Toasting can be stopped at any time by pressing the cancel button.


  • Toasting is a combination of drying and cooking the bread and, because moisture levels differ from one bread to another, toasting times can vary.
  • For slightly dry bread, use a lower setting than normal.
  • For fresh bread or whole wheat bread, use a higher setting than normal.
  • Bread which has a very uneven surface will require a higher setting.
  • Thicker cut pieces of bread (including crumpets) will take longer to toast—sometimes significantly longer. This is because more moisture must be evaporated from the bread before toasting can occur. Very thick pieces of bread may require two toasting cycles.
  • When toasting raisin or other fruit breads, remove any loose raisins or fruit from the surface of the bread before putting it into your toaster. This will help prevent fruit pieces from falling into your toaster or sticking to the guard wires in the toasting slot.


If you are toasting a single slice of bread, set the browning control to a lower setting than normal. By using a lower setting when toasting a single slice of bread, it will not be over toasted.


Never use a knife or any other utensil or implement to remove jammed bread. Never insert your fingers into the bread slots.

  1. Switch the toaster off at the mains supply socket and unplug it.
  2. Allow the toaster to completely cool down.
  3. Carefully ease the bread out of the toaster being careful not to damage the heating element.


Always switch off, unplug and allow the toaster to cool down before moving, cleaning or storing. Never immerse the toaster or power cord and plug in water or any other liquid.

  • Clean the outside of your toaster with a damp cloth then dry thoroughly.
  • Never use harsh, abrasive or caustic cleaners.


It is important that crumbs are not allowed to build up inside your toaster. Excess crumbs are unhygienic and could catch fire.

Crumbs can be removed by sliding the crumb tray out from the bottom of your toaster. You can then tip the crumbs out. Always make sure that your toaster has completely cooled down and is disconnected from the mains supply before removing crumbs.
Never use your toaster without the crumb tray fitted. Always replace the crumb tray before using your toaster.
