Newly Diagnosed Celiac Daughter

Recommended Posts

I have two firsts here: 1.) This is my first time to post a message. I hope I'm doing this right! 2.) My 22 year-old daughter has recently been diagnosed as having celiac - a first for our family. I've been doing lots of reading recently, and read somewhere that a toaster oven would be good for the celiac person to have. My question is: is this really the case? I have bought a toaster oven for her but it is still in the unopened box. I'm trying to decide if she really needs it or not, therefore I would take it back to the store if she doesn't really need it. Can someone please advise? And, thanks!

A toaster oven is only good for toasting Gluten Free Bread. I dont have a toaster. The gluten-free bread that is store bought tastes nasty to me. So I have no need of one.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

If your daughter is going to toast gluten-free anything, she cannot use a toaster that has ever toasted regular gluten-containing bread. So, yes, she needs her own toaster. It doesn't matter if it is a regular toaster or a toaster oven, but it needs to be dedicated to gluten-free foods.

Welcome :D

I have my own dedicated toaster (I feel that the toaster oven takes too long). I make my own bread and then freeze it in groups of two laying flat in a big zip loc (as many pairs as you can get in there). I put my frozen bread in the microwave for like 15-30 seconds and then toast it. I also use the toaster for gluten free waffles.

My husband uses our toaster oven (he grew up with one so we registered for one when we got married couple years ago). The only thing I ever used the toaster oven for was making french bread pizza (before I knew I was gluten intolerante -long time ago). My husband eats gluten so the toaster oven is his.

I agree with the other posts, if you get store bread (already made) it does taste better toasted. The best bread is home made bread (a lot better than already made bread). I like Gluten Free Pantry white sandwich bread. It is really easy to make in the oven (about 30-40 minutes to rise and then 30 minutes in the oven).

Good Luck.

Hi,

A dedicated gluten-free toaster oven is a great idea...not just for toast, but to bake gluten-free pizzas, gluten-free garlic bread, to heat up and toast gluten-free muffins and cakes, to bake gluten-free cookies, etc. Also great for roasting entire chickens, pieces of chicken, fish, gluten-free pies and quiche, french fries, mini-meat loafs, baked potatoes, baked apples, etc.

Make sure all the pans are gluten-free, and all the utensils too.

I'm getting hungry just talking about this :-)

Hope it helps!

I just use my regular oven to heat up all of those things, but could see the value in the toaster oven. I have a 100% gluten free home and a brand new oven even, so no worries here. But using tin foil under food in the regular oven would offer protection.
