Resumee

The Bosch TAT6A114 Toaster is a stable and safe toaster. The degree of browning is regulated by six different levels. The toaster is easy to use and the LED display shows you in which mode you are currently in. The "High-Lift" function always gives you the opportunity to safely pick out your toast by pushing it a little further up for better access. The only downside is that if you roast your toast at the highest level for too long, smoke will appear.

Pro

  • Indicator lights
  • Bun attachment
  • Up-lift function

Cons

  • Smoke formation

A rock-solid toaster which allows you to pick out the toast easily due to the high-lift function.

General information

The Bosch TAT6A114 Toaster has a firm stand thanks to the rubber feet. This prevents the 1702 g lightweight plastic toaster from slipping.

Tanning stages

The toaster has a total of six different tanning levels, as well as a warm-up and a thawing function.

Further function

In addition, the toaster has an integrated retractable roll attachment to prepare or heat rolls. To extend the top, press a lever. At medium browning level, as recommended by the manufacturer, the roll is not properly baked yet.

With the help of a separate release button, you are able to stop the toasting process individually and prematurely.

At the same time, a maximum of two toast slices can be toasted at the same time.

So that you don't burn your fingers on the radiators, the "High-Lift" function allows you to push the toast slices a little further up.

Below the toaster, there is a holder to wind up the cable.

Speed

After the toaster has been started, a red light illuminates, which goes out again when the process is finished.

At the highest level, the toasting process takes 3 minutes and 13 seconds. However, the toast slices are then strongly burnt, smoke forms and the toast is no longer edible.

If you toast on medium level, it takes 1 minute and 48 seconds until you have a brown, in some areas dark brown, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside on the plate.

On the lowest level, the toasting process takes 1 minute and 14 seconds, the toast is then slightly crispy and soft from the inside.

Power consumption

The average power consumption is about 950 W.

Cleaning and maintenance

To make cleaning easier, the toaster has a crumb tray that you can take out separately.

How thick can the toast slices be max? Or do toast rolls fit in?

The toast space volume includes L136mm x W32mm x H119,5mm per slot. The toast slice should, therefore, be somewhat smaller so that it cannot get stuck.
