How to use
BALMUDA The Toaster

BALMUDA The Toaster brings out the best in any kind of bread. Simply follow the 4 steps below.

STEP 1

Place bread

STEP 2

Add water

STEP 3

Set timer

STEP 1

Place bread

The ultimate toast starts with the right technique.

Place bread right-side-up and evenly spaced

Every loaf of bread has a top and a bottom. For best results, place each slice with the top facing out. For “mountain-shaped” bread, the “peak” is the top. For square and other bread, check which side is on top when the bread is on the shelf. If you’re toasting a single slice, place it in the center. If more than one, spread them out evenly.

If your toaster has breadcrumbs in it from previous use, they will absorb energy and prevent your bread from being properly toasted. Be sure to clean your toaster regularly for a reliably delicious toasted finish.

STEP 2

Add water

Before each use, pour 5 cc of water into the
water inlet using the special cup. Skip this step if using Classic Mode.

Use the same amount of water every time

Whatever kind of bread you’re toasting, and however many slices you’re toasting at once, always add the same 5cc of water.

In Classic Mode, steam isn’t used, so water isn’t needed. Adding it can cause buildup in the boiler and lead to a malfunction.

STEP 3

Select mode

Each mode uses a different heating method.
Read on to learn which mode is right for which kind of bread.

Toast Mode

This mode is grill until golden brown. It delivers a delicious contrast between a crisp exterior and a moist interior. In addition to toasting, you can also use it to crisp up bagels and English muffins sliced ​​in half horizontally.

Cheese Toast Mode

This high-temperature toasting mode, it's perfect for cheese toast and other menus with uncooked ingredients on top. It can also be used on pizza toast or as a menu to heat vegetables and fruits.

Baguette Mode

Warm the inside thoroughly without browning the surface. Warm Baguette, rolls, bean bun, and muffins until they're fluffy and freshly baked.

Croissant Mode

Designed to emulate a baker’s oven, this mode reproduces the flavor, texture, and moisture that could once only be experienced with freshly baked bread. Buttery croissants become warm and crisp without burning. It goes well with Danishes and scones when you want them to be crispy.

Classic Mode 170 / 200 / 250°C

Utilizing heat without steam, this mode offers three different temperature settings (170°C / 200°C / 250°C) just like a traditional oven. It is a great way to prepare various smaller dishes such as gratin, cookies, or even frozen foods that can be oven-cooked.

Note:

* Do not put bread higher than 5.5 cm. in the toaster, as it could burn or char if too close to the heating tube.
* With toppings or ingredients that could drip or fail, be sure to use a heatproof tray or dish.

Wait 30 seconds after heating the pastry using Croissant Mode. The butter will settle and the pastry will regain its crispiness..

STEP 4

Set timer

Press the power button on the right side to switch the toaster on,
and then turn the dial clockwise to set the timer. After this, just wait
for your delicious toast to be done.

No extra time needed for extra slices or thickness

Even if you are toasting thicker bread or more slices, you don’t need to add extra time. Check the recommended times and experiment to find the timer setting that gives the results you prefer.

Why isn’t more time needed for thicker bread?

The changing temperature inside the toaster is precisely measured and automatically adjusted by switching the heater on and off. This precision lets the toaster give any kind of bread the same toasted finish in the same amount of time, from thicker slices that are hard to warm up to thinner slices that warm up quickly. 

Put slices in the toaster frozen and add an extra 1 or 2 minutes to the timer.
* Freezing bread preserves its flavor better than refrigerating it. We recommend freezing any bread you don’t eat on the day it was baked.
