If you are used to toasting, probably you do it every single day you will be sure of which setting to choose however for first timers it is best advised that you begin with the lighter setting and if bread does not brown the way you want then make a second toasting cycle to make it as dark as you wish.

Using an oven to make buttered toast

- Apply butter on bread slices: for this method you are supposed to apply butter before toasting the bread and it must be pure butter not margarine. Put the slices you want to toast on a plate and use a butter knife to apply butter on both sides of the slice or just one of them if you prefer. The main reason for applying butter before toasting is this particular method is to make butter sink perfectly into the toast giving it that extra delicious and exceptional flavor.
- Put bread in the oven: depending on the type of oven you are using put bread either on the rack or broiler. Stand close by to watch the bread toast on the upper side so that when it is ready you can turn it to the opposite side before it burns. If you want your toast dry and very dark then let it toast a little longer, but if you want the toast soft just toast it for a short period of time.
- Serve your toast: after bread browning to the extent you want it, remove it from the oven and serve. You can also add some more butter if you like.
Using a stove to make buttered toast:

- Melt the butter: turn the stove on to heat the frying pan and add some butter most preferably a half teaspoon of butter. Heat the butter until it melts completely.
- Place a slice of bread in the pan: when you put the slice of bread into the pan it will immediately get infused with butter then let it toast for about two or three minutes after it has browned you can flip the bread over to another side and allow to also cook for the same time. Make sure that the bread sinks up all the butter in the frying pan.
- Remove bread and serve: for this particular technique enough butter has sank into the bread so there is no reason for you to add more butter after, you will just spoil the flavor of the toast. Most people love this method of making a butter toast because it has more advantages than other methods as it evenly spreads butter to the entire toast and gives bread a really nice flavor and it makes it crispy.
