  • Besides what everyone else has already covered about the can use a toothbrush to brush the "gunk" off the coils etc...that stuff kind of sticks and after awhile gets built up. I know the kind of toaster you're talking about and I would try to keep it also.

  • Usually the crumbs and stuff go to the bottom and you just open it up and dump the crumbs. You could try and get a toothbrush or small brush in there to knock them down. Now if you have something sticky in there, I have no clue because I would not get it wet.

  • i would usually get a new one but they dont have this kind anywhere for a reasonable price. its stainless steal and it has the old fashion look to it. it was one of those free gifts from the bank lol, i know kinda pathtic but i love how it looks and i priced others similar in style and they wasnt 50 and up for them, thats a little much for a toaster.

  • Did you turn it over and see where the little opening is? That's how to clean it but like simplicity said, unplug it first.

  • turn it upside down & hit on it.

  • I unplug mine and open the door to the crumb tray. I then use a small brush to brush away all the crumbs that I can reach. I usually set the toaster on an old newspaper before I start because it makes clean-up much easier. I then take a damp cloth and wipe everything down, close the crumb tray and plug her back in. I wish you hadn't brought this up, 'cause mine needs cleaning right now!!
