Electric toaster – useful kitchen appliance but needs to used properly
A toaster is indeed a useful everyday appliance but when used improperly it can be dangerous.
As one of the leading kitchens appliances brands, we share with you insights on using the toaster safely:
1. Clean your toaster regularly: If you use your toaster every day, a weekly cleaning schedule is the best way to remove crumbs. Leftover bread crumbs can clog up the vents and can cause an electrical fire. Turn the toaster upside down and shake out all the crumbs and wipe off the grease. Before you attempt to clean the toaster, always unplug it first.
2. Our toasters come with removable crumb trays that allow easy cleaning. Remove the tray and wash it with water. Make sure at no point water should come in contact with the toaster and its electrical parts. Do not clean heating elements or get them wet by any chance.
3. Store your toaster carefully: Toasters can get hot and it is, therefore, important to keep flammable items such as cooking oil, paper towel and flour away from the toaster. Keep it on the kitchen counter in such a way that it has proper ventilation. Do not keep the toaster near a source of water.
4. Never leave a toaster unattended: It is never a good idea to leave the toaster unattended while it is in use.
5. Unplug your toaster when it isn’t being used: Just like all other electronics, the toaster should also be unplugged when it is not in use.
6. Signs of damage: If you spot any signs of damage like frayed cords or broken buttons, replace the toaster at the earliest.
7. Always buy a good quality toaster: There are many brands in the market, you should only buy from reputed ones like us. Our toasters come with a 2 years warranty.
