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

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.

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Olivia....what country are you located in?  I just bought a bag of regular M&M's from the vending machine at work. They are the milk chocolate ones and it is a 1.69 oz. bag.  The allergy warning states: Contains milk and soy. May contain peanuts.  The "best before" date on it is for April of 2017 so this is a recent bag.

      Getting a diagnosis like celiac an be overwhelming because it's so complex and there's a lot to learn. If you're unhappy with your doctor, switching to a new one and/or getting a second opinion are options. It's really important to find someone you feel comfortable with who listens to your concerns. That being said, as you're preparing for your next appointment, take time to write down any questions that come up as you go about your day beginning to manage your condition and track any symptoms you're experiencing. Did your doctor discuss lifestyle changes and treatment options with you? Here are some examples of things to ask: What tests do I need? What treatment options are available? Should I take nutritional supplements? Are there any dietary restrictions that I need to follow? How will I learn which foods contain gluten? Should I see a dietitian? Can you recommend nutritionists who work with celiac patients? The Celiac Foundation is another resource. Their website has lots of information and resources. There's also the Celiac Support Association – they have local chapters, or the National Foundation for Celiac Awarenes. And check out magazines like Gluten-Free Living, Delight Gluten-Free and Living Without.

      Totally agree Cristiana!
    • Kidney disease question
      Icelandgirl and I often remark, "There's always something [to be worried about]"! Whilst  is obviously important to have all these tests and there is good reason to check them (one reads that very occasionally doctors miss something) it has done my health anxiety absolutely no favours having blood test after blood test!    
    • Celiac Night Vision
      On 4th June I posted on the ehealth vision forum under the title seasonal night vision scotomas, but there were no replies. I have just had my eyes tested by an optometrist. Acuity is 20/25. She did field testing and Topcon tomography and did not find anything alarming for my age. However in dim lighting against a light background I can sometimes see a round slightly greenish area about 20 degrees across with lateral extensions to the blind spots. Shutting the eyes suddenly makes it a light area. The scotomas occur within this area. I can also see those intriguing blue arcs of the retina with both eyes (though they always look violet to me). Trying to identify what causes migraine, scotomas and possible celiac symptoms is notoriously difficult which is why there are no good papers on how to do it. I continue to keep a daily record of foods, symptoms and anything else which seems relevant listing what is being avoided and highlighting possible clues. notme! - we are eating tomatoes and potatoes this year! Good luck to other celiac detectives!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
