What the Toaster’s Bagel Button Actually Does
By Chad Upton | Editor
Some toasters have a bagel button and it’s obviously meant for when you want to toast a bagel. But, what does that button actually do?
Firstly, it increases the toasting time since bagels are thicker. Secondly, it increases the heat of the inner elements and decreases the temperature of the outer elements so you don’t burn the outside of the bagel.
It’s also useful for English muffins or other thick items.
