http://www.planitpro...toastabags.html
So, I found these in the health food section of my grocery store, conveniently placed near the gluten free foods. They are toastabags. I use to get a mild upset stomach when I used the toaster for my gluten-free bread. Now, I have no problems at all. As far as I can tell there is no cross contamination going on. These were advertised on the package as a way to make grilled cheese sandwiches in your toaster. Since I only toast plain bread, I don't wash them much. They can be cleaned with soap and water or put in the dishwasher if you wish. They have other products, but I haven't checked them out yet.

Our Kareng invented those!.

No, just kidding, but she did turn me on to them for travel . :D

They are called Toast It bags here in the states.

And yes, they are very helpful indeed! Glad you found them ---as using a shared toaster is a dicey
proposition. and a big No-no.

Cheers!

Jess found a link & previously posted it, for making them yourself, too:

Just a friendly FYI, it pays to stand by and watch it you use the toaster and parchment paper combo. My toaster started on fire the 2nd or 3rd time I used the (homemade) sleeves.

I bought a new toaster for around $6.00, it works like a charm and has for 2 years.

Really glad I wasn't in the shower...

Oh no! I sometimes put my frozen bread in the toaster for a preliminary toast, myself!

And...Congrats on finding a $6 toaster! That earns you the frugal shopper of the day award! I wanted a red one so I think I paid $20.

Red is always best IMHO.

I prefered my indoor grill for heating up gluten-free bread or biscuits when I wasn't hovering over the toaster.

I have to giggle because like Marilyn, I found one (I think it was $7 maybe? ) at Walmart's when we were in Florida last year.

I decided I preferred direct toasting and not the bags and so, it became part of the traveling kitchen we lug around. :lol:

Fire extinguisher or spare $6 toaster, inquiring minds want to know.

Purple toaster, 10 I think, not checked the exchange rate. I gave up gluten-free bread about 2 weeks later, but it still has a place on my counter becauze I love it so much. It is kind of symbolic of my space and stuff.

Not sure if that's what you meant. I guess the toaster bags are a bit hypothetical too really. Self delusion is a wonderful thing :)

I would assume at some point it would become cheaper to have purchased a seperate toaster than to keep wrapping toast up to protect it from the shared toaster.

Wrapping or toastit bags are great when travelling. I know people who get them and don't eat gluten-free. They hate the dirty toasters at the hotel breakfast. They were advertised many, many years ago as a way for college kids to re-heat pizza.. Back in the day we were allowed a toaster in our rooms, before microwaves.

OK, that does make sense. Not so much at home, though, if you're making toast a lot.
