The crumb tray is not emptied

It’s easy to forget that toasters have a crumb tray at the bottom.

Be sure to empty it and clean it well from time to time.

If you allow too many crumbs to accumulate over years, it can pose a fire hazard.

Also, it’s not very hygienic to leave crumbs lying around forever.

neglect of settings

If you want to get your toast right and avoid burning it, you should really mess with the settings.

Whether it’s different types of bread or you need to defrost a frozen slice, take a look and don’t be afraid to experiment a little to find your perfect combination.

Forget the extra lift lever

Don’t try to get your toast out.

Most toaster levers can be raised slightly to allow you to reach the goods.

Try it next time – and by no means try to pry it out with a knife.

Insert bagels incorrectly

Bagel lovers beware, as you might put them upside down in your toaster.

You need to place your bagel with the slices inside.

The wires in the center of your toaster will get hotter, which means the outside of the bagel can stay chewy, but the inside can get a nice browning.
