Before you use the appliance for the first time, we advise you to let the
appliance complete a few toasting cycles without slices of bread on the highest
browning setting in a properly ventilated room.
This burns off any dust that may have accumulated on the heating elements
and prevents unpleasant smells during toasting.

of the appliance (Fig. 2).

The browning setting lights light up quickly from left to right and back a few
