The Toast setting uses a combo of wet and dry heat for breakfast-worthy toast. Press this to choose your desired toast done-ness.
The Heat setting switches between Broil, Steam and Convection Bake. It can heat up anything from uncooked and frozen food to leftovers without drying them out. Press this to choose your desired length of heating time.
Turn this to adjust the Toast and Heat settings, and press it in to start cooking. Pressing it in with nothing else selected wakes up the barcode scanner.
To scan a Tovala Meal’s barcode, hold it 2 to 3 inches below the control panel and a red light will appear. If the light doesn’t appear, press the knob and the scanner will light up. The Tovala beeps when a barcode scans.
The lights in this bar illuminate to show how far along your food is in the cooking process. A full bar means your meal is done!
Water Level Indicator
These lights indicate the level of water in your water reservoir. If they’re ever red, you’ll need to fill up your water reservoir before cooking. The lights will turn off after 5 minutes of inactivity.
This indicates whether your Tovala is connected to WiFi, which it must be in order to cook a Tovala Meal or control your Tovala with the app.

You’ll use this when you connect your Tovala to WiFi. Your smartphone’s screen will flash to communicate your WiFi credentials to this sensor.
When you’re cooking, this will display how much time is left before your food is ready.
