Possible Toaster Solution

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!

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.

xxx Happy New Year!

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.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
