  1. Important: Read all instructions carefully before first use.
  2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
  3. To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse the cord, plug, or the appliance itself in water or other liquid.
  4. Never leave appliances unattended when in use.
  5. This appliance is not intended to be used by children. Close supervision is necessary when the appliance is in use near children.

  17. Unplug from the outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow the unit to cool before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
  18. Do not attempt to dislodge food when the slice toaster is plugged in.



  1. A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risk resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
  2. Longer extension cords are available and may be used if care is exercised in their use.
  3. If a longer extension cord is used:
    • a. The marked electrical rating of the extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance.
    • b. The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled by children or tripped over unintentionally.


This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other); follow the instructions below:
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.

This appliance is for household use only.

FAQs About EverStart ATS-274 4-Slice Toaster Instruction

What names do the components of a toaster go by?

A bread rack, heat sensor, trip plate, level, timing mechanism, electromagnet, catch, and browning control are just a few of the many sophisticated pieces that make up toaster ovens and toasters.

Why is there a one-slice side on a toaster?

Why does the toaster have a side for just one slice? The temperature gauge, which indicates when the toast is done, is located on one side of a toaster with a standard design. This gauge functions best if it is closest to the bread while only one slice is toasted.

Any toasters that toast uniformly?

both slots The Cuisinart toasters are among the smallest we tested, making them perfect for households with little counter space. In all the versions of both Cuisinarts we’ve tested throughout the years, even when we produced back-to-back batches, they consistently toasted bread uniformly from top to bottom and slot to slot.

Is purchasing a four-slice toaster worthwhile?

For big families or frequent toasters, a four-slice toaster is preferable. Since they are heavier and can typically toast two slices independently if you don’t need all four slots, they are more stable than two-slice toasters.

What function does a toaster serve?

A toaster’s main function is to facilitate the preparation of food. Specifically, if the user desires warming waffles, toasted bread or bagels, etc. These features are offered by the toaster.

What purposes serve the toaster?

An gadget in the kitchen called a toaster is used to toast things like bagels, crumpets, and sliced bread. Toast refers to toasted bread. Typical toasters heat bread by radiating heat from hot electric components.

How does a toaster determine when to stop?

The bread becomes toast when it is exposed to the heating element for the proper length of time, turning a light brown colour. The toast will become black and start to smoke if heated for an excessive amount of time. In order to avoid this, most toasters are designed to shut off on their own.

How come my toast is always soggy?

Use a toast rack rather than a plate when you’re ready to serve your toast. Toast will “sweat,” producing moisture that will soften the bread on the side that comes in contact with the plate. Another choice is to just reheat it in the toaster before serving; this should make it crisp again.

What do the dots on a toaster represent?

How long the bread will be toasted is controlled by the toaster’s numbers. Your toast emerges from the toaster’s top once the timer rings out.

Why do toasters cost so much?

“The finish, brand, and features make the biggest differences. Buying a more expensive model will bring you a stainless steel or fancy finish with some bells and whistles, whereas cheaper toasters sometimes have a plastic exterior.”

How is a toaster cleaned?

A crumb tray is typically seen on the bottom of toasters. Remove it, then throw the crumbs in the garbage. Any lingering crumbs on the tray should be cleaned up with a damp paper towel or cloth. The tray can also be washed in warm, soapy water, but before reusing it in the toaster, make sure it is totally dry.

Are toasters under $20 good?

Cost. You often get what you pay for when it comes to kitchen appliances, and while some less expensive models work just fine, if you use your toaster every day, it’s worth spending the extra money on a durable model that can withstand frequent use and being put in and taken out of the cupboard without breaking.

Do toasters deteriorate with use?

But as the toasters get older, accumulation makes them more likely to break. And when someone inserts something into the slots to collect toast, they are easily damaged.
