Operating Safety Precautions

  1. Oversize foods, metal foil packages or utensils must not be inserted in the toaster, as they may involve a risk of fire or electric shock.
  2. A fire may occur if the toaster is covered with or touching flammable materials, such as curtains, draperies or walls, when in operation. DO NOT operate under wall cabinets.
  3. DO NOT attempt to dislodge food when the toaster is plugged into electrical outlet.
  4. Excess crumbs and pieces of hot dog stuck inside the machine may cause the unit to smoke. NOSTALGIA NRHDT2

Instructions for the Electrical Cord and Plug

  1. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electrical 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.

    the cord does not drape over a countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on or tripped over unintentionally.
