Bosch Village Collection Key Features

1. Power consumption: This toaster is minimalistic in every sense of the word, including in its power consumption. It is very energy efficient, only working with 825-980 W so you don’t have to constantly worry about power consumption as you prepare your toast.

2. Panel heating elements: The panel heating elements on the Bosch Village Toaster work together with the automatic bread centrig to toast your slices of bread evenly. To guarantee perfect results, the automatic bread centrig features two slots and an electronic sensor.

3. Variable browning control: It has manual browning control. This allows you to manipulate your bread’s toasting and browning. The toaster also has a bun warming function and integrated defrosting as well.

5. Removable crumb tray: The Bosch Village Collection two-slice toaster is equipped with a removable crumb tray to make cleaning easy. When the bread is in the toaster, bread crumbs fall on this tray which is later removed when cleaning.

7. Defrost and reheat: The defrost feature on this toaster is particularly outstanding. It is able to defrost frozen bread up to a point where both sides are evenly browned. The reheat option, on the other hand, allows you to reheat toasted bread at your own pace without burning it.

8. Safety switch off if toast becomes stuck: Bosch Village toaster has a safety switch that really comes in handy when your toast bread gets stuck in the toaster.

9. Integrated cable storage: It also has integrated cord storage that helps in maintaining tidiness in your kitchen.
