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.

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.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
