Late at night, a melting savory cheese sandwich can be an indulgent moment of sustenance. The Artisan Toaster truly offers the ultimate toasting experience: the Auto Sensor automatically lowers and lifts all types of toast before browning according to seven grades of “golden”, counted down by an LED timer. Like a thoughtful friend, if you’re called away, the Artisan Toaster will also keep your toast warm. It also features a sandwich rack to prepare delicious, no-drip toasted sandwiches and a bagel function for perfect bagels and buns. If the kitchen is the heart of the home, our Artisan Toaster will be the heart of your kitchen. The automatic lift and lower sensor automatically lowers bread into the self-centering racks upon sensing bread in a slot, then lifts bread as soon as it has reached the selected shade. The Auto Keep Warm initiates when toast hasn't been removed from the toaster within 45 seconds. Toast automatically lowers to keep warm, for up to three minutes.
