Never stick anything into a toaster that isn't meant to go in there – you’ll be risking a severe electric shock or fire.

Make sure you clean out the crumb tray frequently. This will help keep your toaster working properly and prevent fire.

If you notice an odd smell or any sparking, unplug the toaster immediately and contact the retailer and/or manufacturer.

Always store the toaster away from the sink or any liquids that could spill on it.

When the toaster is unplugged and cooled down, wipe the toaster down with a soft dry cloth, but never use water or any sort of cleaner inside it.

If it’s cracked or damaged in any way, stop using it and either contact the retailer and/or manufacturer or buy a new one.

Always turn off the toaster at the socket when not in use.
