For many people, a slice of toast is just as essential and obvious a part of breakfast as coffee or tea. Since 2010 it has been possible to brown one's toast in a genuine designer item "made by ritterwerk": The models volcano3 and volcano5 are furthermore among the slimmest toasters in the world. This minimalist highlight is normally to be found in the kitchen in the colours black, red or white. Customers have also been able to design the glass plates of the volcano5 individually. Whether it be a work of art, graphic design or wedding photo – favourite motifs can be send to email@example.com and make each toaster a unique item.
- Quality product made in Germany
- Incomparably slimline with only 9 cm depth
- Integrated bread and roll rack
- Memory function of the toasting degree
- Defrosting and reheating function
- Crumb tray
The fronts of the volcano5 toaster consist of high-quality glass, which doesn’t just look chic, being available in the colours of white, black and red, but also caters for a thermally insulated housing. If you would like to have your own pattern on the glass fronts of the toaster instead of the three standard colours, you are welcome to send an individual picture to ritterwerk. The glass fronts will then be printed with the desired pattern, and you will have a special toaster which is unique.
Unlike the volcano5 toasters, the volcano3 toaster has aluminium fronts. These also cater for a thermal insulated housing, and create an equally elegant impression in your kitchen.
The toaster not only looks elegant with its aluminum or glass outer casing, but is also thermally insulated from the outside. The automatic switch-off on clamping the toast and a separate stop button to interrupt the toasting process also ensure absolutely safe toasting.
With a depth of shortly 9 cm, the elegant elongated slot toaster is incomparably slim-line and a real eye-catcher in any kitchen.
The elongated slot toaster volcano3 and volcano5 can toast two slices at a time and does have an automatic toast food centering.
The bread and roll rack is integrated in the toaster and can be easily raised and lowered. This means that sometimes thicker slices of bread or other pastries, such as croissants and rolls, can be quickly warmed up or toasted.
With the crumb tray, which is quick and easy to remove, the toaster is easy to clean.
The degree of toasting can be set as required, this is displayed digitally via LEDs and is retained by a memory function during the next toasting process.
The warm-up function makes it easy to reheat toasted bread within 30 seconds without toasting it again. Using the separate defrosting function, frozen slices of bread can also be defrosted and then toasted in one operation.

Do you have any questions about our toasters? Here are some frequently asked questions and the corresponding answers. If your question has not been not included or still isn’t sufficiently clarified, we will be pleased to assist you.
How does a toaster work?
In contrast to other toasters, ritter toasters do not have two slots for toasting purposes, but just one elongated slot – hence the name “elongated slot toaster”. The toasting process is started by simply pushing down the lever. After the set time/toasting degree has elapsed, the toasting process ends and the toasted food is discharged upwards.
Which toaster is the best?
Different designs of toaster are available from ritter, depending on what you want from your toaster. Each toaster is a high-quality product which is also quick and easy to use.
How much does a toaster cost?
The prices of our toasters varies according to the model. You can choose between volcano5 (with glass fronts in black, red or white), volcano3 (with aluminium fronts) or an individually designed volcano5 toaster (with your own pattern on the glass fronts).
How much electricity does a toaster use?
We aren’t able to say with certainty. It is generally the case, however, that the higher the performance (as shown on the type plate) and the longer the operating time, the higher the power consumption.
How many Watts does a toaster require?
All ritter toasters require between 850 – 1,000 Watts.
Does the toaster have a safety stop function?
If the food gets stuck in the toasting shaft, the toaster will still switch off after the set toasting degree has been reached.
What type of heating does the toaster use?
We use “heating wires” which are wound on a carrier (mica plate). Heating wires, or quartz heating rods, are two different but equivalent processes. They don't have any particular advantages or disadvantages.
Will the toaster remember the set toasting degree?
The set toasting degree is displayed digitally on LEDs, and is retained with the memory function for the next toasting process so it doesn’t always have to be set again – this also applies when the toaster is disconnected from the mains.
Does the toaster get hot on its outside?
The slim design of the toaster means its glass fronts can heat up. However, the temperatures achieved are within the standard specifications. There is therefore no risk of fire.
How wide is the slot of the toaster?
The toasting shaft of the toaster is approx. 10 cm high and approx. 25 cm in length.
Do maxitoasts also fit inside the toaster?
The toasting shaft is approx. 10 cm high and approx. 25 cm in length. It is therefore suitable for maxitoasts.
How long is the toaster’s power cord?
The cord is approx. 108 cm in length.
