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.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.

      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Hi CeliacMommaX2, 'Yes, you must treat oats like wheat in a situation where gluten free oats cause the same response. I would also not use pots or pans for your daughter, that you have cooked oats in, as there is always a chance that there are traces left in the pans after washing up.  It's better safe than sorry.

      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.
