"Gluten free" means making your diet and home as FREE from cross contamination as possible.
Here are a few links that discuss what is suggested regarding cc issues. They explain that YES, you need a separate colander, cutting board, toaster and you should not use scratched teflon pans, etc. Porous surfaces are what you need to replace.
Hidden sources of gluten:
Beer is not gluten-free, unless it is a gluten-free beer.
Blue cheese made from starter bread molds is not a common practice in the US anymore, but certainly, check the labels. If wheat is an ingredient, it should be listed.
Hope you feel better ASAP.
