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

The ultimate toast starts with the right technique.

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.

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

Toast mode is specially designed for toasting sliced breads, bagels and English muffins. The optimum temperature is set in correspondence to the baking time. You can adjust the baking time to the toast the bread to your favorite toast shade.

Cheese Toast Mode

This mode is suitable for Cheese Toast and other type of bread with toppings. The heater tube on the upper side is stronger so when BALMUDA The Toaster adjusts the heating process in the upper and lower heater tubes, the toppings can be heated thoroughly but at the same time it will not overbake the bottom. The temperature control can avoid burnt bread even in longer baking time.

Baguette Mode

This mode is suitable for heating bread with hard crusts like a baguette or overall soft bread such as bread rolls and spindle bread. It uses steam to recreate freshly baked texture and taste.

Croissant Mode

This mode is suitable for heating bread that has a lot of butter and sugar such as croissants and scones. It will heat the surface without burning it while restoring its lovely crispy texture outside.

Classic Mode 170 / 200 / 250°C

This mode is suitable to bake various types of food items like cookies, rice cakes, cream gratin and even vegetables and salmon by heating at a constant temperature without the using the steam option.

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.
