Auto adjusting bread guides

These guides are useful in toasting the bread evenly. They can center themselves according to bread thickness, and ensure that both sides receive equal amount of heat. Additionally, there are 7 different toast shade settings included. This means that your toast will be browned according to your personal liking.

The Oster 2-Slice Toaster has a Bagel operation, which allows the user to toast the bread from outsides only, while the inner side remains soft and chewy. The safety feature of auto shutoff turns off the toaster when left on for a while. It also prevents toast burning and jamming inside the slots.
