These vertical toasters can accommodate their maximum number of slices, five for the TC55 or six for the TC66 or a reduced number of 2 slices in quieter periods. Both models utilise an automatic element timer for consistent results. Once cooked, the toast can remain warm in the machine before being manually ejected. Note that the units are designed for continuous use. A change in selection to the number of slices toasted will require a period for element temperatures to equalise. Uneven toasting may result during these transitional periods.
