BALMUDA The Toaster brings out the best in any kind of bread.
Simply follow the 4 steps below.
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.
Before each use, pour 5 cc of water into the water inlet using the special cup. Skip this step if using Oven 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 Oven Mode, steam isn't used, so water isn't needed. Adding it can cause buildup in the boiler and lead to a malfunction.
Each mode uses a different heating method.
Read on to learn which mode is right for which kind of bread.
Heats both sides of the bread evenly at a moderate temperature. Recommended for thin slices and everyday sandwich bread.
Round-top bread2.5-3.5 min
Square bread2.5-3.5 min
English muffin3-5 min
Heats at a moderate-to-high temperature. Recommended for thick slices and fresh bread with high moisture content.
Sourdough Bread3-4 min
Rye Bread3-4 min
Heats at a high temperature, especially on top. Recommended for sliced bagels and toast with toppings to give a crisp, golden brown finish.
* With oily foods or toppings that can drip, be sure to use the baking pan.
Heats at a moderate temperature without browning. Recommended for bread that you just want to warm up, such as croissants, rolls and baguettes.
Pain au chocolat3-4 min
Heat is regulated to reach the desired temperature without the use of steam. Recommended for dishes such as gratin, cookies and even frozen foods that can be oven-cooked.

Sandwich Bread Mode is for everyday supermarket-bought sliced bread. Artisan Bread Mode heats at a higher temperature and is designed for bread with a higher moisture content, such as fresh bread from the bakery. To experience bread at its best, we recommend slicing the bakery bread a little thicker than usual (about 1 inch). When toasted this results in a fluffier interior and crisper exterior.
Use Pizza mode to toast bagels to crispy, chewy perfection.
Wait 30 seconds after heating the pastry using Pastry Mode. The butter will settle and the pastry will regain its crispiness.
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.
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.
