New Toaster?

Recommended Posts

I am about to go gluten and dairy free since my test results from Enterolab confirmed these two sensativities. We currently have a nice toaster oven that both my wife and I use for bagels, waffles etc... Now when I do go gluten free will I have to buy a new toaster or will I be able to clean the one we have now and it would be ok?

Also what kind of care products contain gluten? Deodorant, toothpaste, soaps, shampoos? Are there specific brands that dont contain gluten?

Thanks!

I agree with the need for a separate toaster--but did you say toaster oven? That you can clean out thoroughly, and if needed, line the inside pan with foil for your food.

WHEN I STARTED OUT...THOUGHT CC WAS JUST HYPE AND DIDN'T GIVE IT MUCH THOUGHT..KEPT 100% gluten-free BUT STILL DIDN'T FEEL THE WAY I SHOULD.

THEN HAD COMPANY FOR A WEEK WITH LOTS OF NON gluten-free TOAST IN THE TOASTER...EVEN THO ON THE OTHER SIDE. :lol: HA HA

WELL MY DH CAME HOME WITH A NEW BEAUTIFUL CHROME TOASTER--2 SIDED -BIG SLOTS FOR BEGALS...AND I'VE BEEN SOOOOO MUCH BETTER. HE USES THE OLD ONE ACROSS THE KITCHEN :ph34r:

GET YOURSELF A CHEAP TOASTER AND I BET YOU'LL AVOID ALOT OF PROBLEMS. I SURE HAVE.

Personally, if we would have a toaster oven (and if I could eat gluten-free bread, which I can't, since I can't tolerate any grain at all), I would just get a new, cheap toaster (okay, I did, it just sits there now <_< ). Because for me, I would find it a lot of hassle to constantly have to put foil in whenever I would use it, and would probably forget at times. Besides, in order for it to be really safe, you would really need to clean it out every time after somebody uses it for non-gluten-free food. What a pain.

Any shampoo, soap, toothpaste, lotion etc. that says 'wheat germ oil' or 'barley extract' (or whatever looks suspicious) needs to be replaced. If in doubt, give the company a shout! Ha ha. Seriously, you might have to use the 1-800 number at times to find out what the ingredients are, because not all companies actually list them on the product. Don't guess, that's not safe.

Yes, new toaster.

We have a "his" and "hers" toaster set,haha! Since I use my gluteny toaster less, mine in in kitchen closet in a plastic bag. I take it out when I need to toast gluten breads. I think I use it once every 3-4 months.

I sometimes eat gluten-free bread and toast that in celiac disease toaster and I like the gluten-free waffles in toaster too.

So the gluten-free toaster is now used the most.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

we have a toaster oven... I toss the rack in the dishwasher and I ALWAYS put foil down before toasting anything for me or my daughter. My hubby uses it for his non gluten-free breads and buns and we don't have any problems. I am also VERY sensitive and react to the smallest amount of cross contamination, so I think a shared toaster oven is ok IF you clean it thoroughly and alway use foil. But if it's a regular stand up toaster, buy a new one, because those are impossible to keep clean.
