Next, pull out your crumb tray and shake away any loose crumbs into your sink or bin.
Most toasters have a removable tray at the bottom here the majority of crumbs live.
The removal of these trays is very helpful for the cleaning process.
Smeg’s home economist, Clare Edwards says: “Choosing a toaster with a crumb tray, such as Smeg’s, is essential to keep it clean.
“Simply pop out the crumb tray, located at the bottom of the toaster, and empty it into the bin with no need to awkwardly turn the toaster upside down over the bin.
“For toasties, make sure your sandwich toaster rack has a solid base, like Smeg’s, to catch any crumbs or cheese spillages.”
