Helpful browning notes
Toasting is a combination of drying and cooking
the bread. Therefore, differences in denseness
and moisture level from one bread to another
can result in varying toasting times.
For slightly dry bread or thinly sliced bread, use
a lighter setting than you normally would, as it
will toast more quickly.
For very fresh bread, thickly sliced bread or
whole wheat bread, use a darker setting than
normal. Dense, moist bread may also require a
Breads with very uneven surfaces (such as
English muffins) will require a darker toast
setting. For English muffins, we suggest you use
the Total Touch
browning selection on the
custom settings panel and setting #6.
Thickly cut pieces of bread (including bagels)
will take longer, since more moisture must be
evaporated from the bread before toasting
occurs. We suggest you use the Total Touch
browning selection which will add to the normal
toasting time. For moister breads or very thick
pieces, you may need to make the toast setting
darker than you normally would. Very thick
pieces may require two cycles.
Before toasting bagels, slice each bagel into two
equal halves. Select the Bagel button, which
adds the extra time needed for toasting most
