Use standard square cut bread. Remember that stale bread toasts faster than fresh bread; frozen bread takes longer. If a slice of bread gets stuck, switch off the appliance and leave it to cool. Unplug the appliance before attempting to remove the bread. You can then remove the bread without the risk of touching a hot element.
The toaster comes with sensor browning control to toast successively several slices of bread with a constant result keeping the same temperature setting. It has been tested in our labs that there'll be no burnt toasts.
When bread is toasted, some of the moisture is turned into steam by the heat of the toaster. If the toast is placed on a cooler surface, the steam will condense back into water leaving the little droplets some people refer to as "toast sweat". To avoid soggy toast, allows steam to escape from hot toast instead of condensing into adjacent slices and making them soggy. Suggestion: use a toast rack to maintain air gaps between slices.
Some poorly made toasters only toast a strip across the middle of the bread. Evenness and consistency of results are the key conditions to consider when buying a toaster. Each slot should not produce different results.
Broiling is a setting used to do top browning. Always monitor the food on the "Broil" setting to ensure that you are not over cooking. We suggest using the timer as food can burn quickly on this setting. When broiling, turn food over for even cooking. Food should not be placed directly on the wire rack. When broiling, some smoke is likely to occur. Removing excess fat prior to broiling can reduce this.
Yes. Baking can be used to bake frozen pizza, bacon, hamburgers, etc. Before baking, remember to preheat the oven toaster for 5 minutes. On selected model, you are able to grill/bake with the convection function, e.g. EOT4805K.
If you want to make cappuccinos and lattes you're much better off with a coffee machine. Buy a coffee maker, if you want to make large quantities of coffee as you produce up to 15 cups worth in one cycle.
Cold fresh water from the tap is best to brew coffee. Water should be fresh; if it has been sitting too long (or has been heated and then cooled), it will be missing the dissolved air that is an important component of the water's taste. Distilled water and mineral water are not suitable as too much mineral content will hasten damaging lime scale buildup inside the coffee maker, while an absence of minerals will give your coffee and espresso a flat taste while also harming the boiler inside the machine.
The filter in the kettle is a scale filter. The scale filter is used to filter out the powdery whitish layer in your kettle. Lime scale deposits on the bottom of the kettle result in loss of energy and can affect the service life of the appliance. The appliance switches off before boiling if the layer of scale is too thick. It is then very difficult to remove. The appliance should be de-scaled regularly depending on the level of the water hardness.
The boiling water is approximately 90°C and above. However, the boiling point of water depends on the water purity. Water which contains impurities (such as salted water) boils at a higher temperature than pure water.
