We are a family of four. my husband has celiac, do I have to really have two toasters or can I buy a 4 slice, and split the slots...two for him two for my family or regular bread?

If it were me, I would buy myself a $10.00 toaster for myself - the risk is way too much.

A single crumb can make me sick ... I'd never share a toaster because there's no way to be 100% sure that a single crumb doesn't fall into my side. In fact, I don't even allow regular bread into my kitchen at all ... it's not worth the risk.

too much of a risk for a couple of reasons.
1. you can't guarantee that an accident will happen and a piece of bread will end up on the wrong side

2. all the crumbs go to the bottom from all slots (we had a 4 slice toaster and the bottom is shared, theres just 4 different slots.)

Not to mention that when the toast pops up, that it doesn't throw glutenous crumbs onto his side. You could also invest in some of those toaster bags, if you really don't want 2 toasters.

I advocate "separate but equal" toasters :P

Husband has Celiac Disease and
Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -
The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis
Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,
most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as
being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."
Serious Depressive state ensued
Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003
Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.
Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle
Developed neuropathy in 2005
Now has lymphadema 2006
It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Not worth the risk.....crumbes can end up anywhere...even in that dishcloth you used to wipe the counter with....i personly bought a cheap 2 slicer and my bf knows NOT to use it...i also took extra percaution and put mine on the other side of the kitchen this way theres no mistakes.....as for the dishcloth.... after he cleans up his "toaster-leavens" that dishcloth goes right into the washer......like what was said in a earlier post....gluten-free not gluten lite!!!!

To piggy back what everyone else has said, definately not worth the risk.

I wouldn't share my whole kitchen if I didn't have to B)

We use a toaster oven with a little baking sheet in it. My husband uses the rack for his wheat bread, and I use the baking sheet for gluten-free stuff. It works for us. I keep the baking sheet separate from the toaster and clean the whole toaster every few days if he is using it.

I would not risk the CC on a 4-slice, I would invest the few dollars to buy a toaster of my own. I would rather shell the money out than feel horrible from getting glutened.
