    need manual

  • ljdh Aug 19, 2008

    I received this toaster in brand new condition but without the manual or cup...just the toaster with egg cooker. I would like to know how to operate the egg cooker....does it have an auto timer for shut off? Do I need to manually time the egg and shut off the machine myself?

    I love this toaster...I think!

The egg cooker does not work at all

On small baord near the poacher, viewing the bottom of board with plug at 6:00, the relay on the left may not be working. It may be getting 24 volts energization, but not operating. Cannot find part on i-net, less than 600 quantity.

Egg poacher tray

Pans, if they are in stock, can be ordered, but they will peel just like the first one. I refuse to pay $5 plus shipping for a faulty product. If the pan is that replaceable, it should be available retail in the stores. I finally just scrubbed what I could of the peeling coating off and (surprise!!!) the pan does not stick any more than it did with the coating. It doesn't look as nice, but save your money - just keep using the pan. I love the toaster, but the company has a great money maker in this faulty item and that dissapoints me that they settle for such mediocrity. At minimum, the company could make the pans more readily available for those who are concerned about the aethetic appearance of the poacher pan or develop a nice looking pan without the apparently useless coating. I use a nonstick spray and the egg comes right out.

$5.00 plus shipping or somewhere around $10. How much is a new toaster? I just scrubbed the remaining coating off my replacement pan that also peeled and it works fine. $10 is too much money for something that will peel just like the original. Too bad they won't make them available in stores that sell the toasters and at least save the consumer shipping.
