Description / Abstract:

Scope and object

This International Standard applies to electric toasters for household and similar use.

The purpose of this standard is to state and define the main performance characteristics for toasters, which are of interest to the user, to describe the standard methods for measuring these characteristics and to give some guidelines for the evaluation of test results.

Taking into account the low grade of accuracy and repeatability, due to variations in time and origin of test materials and ingredients and to the influence of the subjective judgement of test operators, the described test methods may be applied more reliably for comparative testing of a number of appliances at approximately the same time, in the same laboratory, by the same operator and with the same utensils, rather than for testing of single appliances in different laboratories.

This standard is not concerned with safety.

It does not apply to appliances designed exclusively for commercial or industrial use.
