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.

Not worth it.

Gluten free...not gluten lite!

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.
