Toaster Ovens

All~

I am in need of some advise/answers if you know. My husbands ex wife claims that their daughter (who is recently diagnosed w/Celiac) Can not use our toaster oven as it has traces of wheat & that she has to have her own appliances. Is this true? Should we get her her own toaster oven/toaster or any other appliance? She claims her food can not come into contact w/any traces of wheat/gluten. What if I clean the toaster oven regulary? Would that help or just buy her her own?

Please help.

Thanks. :)

I would put all her food on foil in the toaster oven.. there shouldnt be anything wrong with that as long as her food doesnt come into contact. and of course wash your hands and the counters and everything else really well

now the toaster... she will need her own one of those. you can't get those completely clean and there are ALOT of crumbs.

but i have cooked gluten free and regular food in an oven at the same time and never had a problem. if she is extremely sensitive i wouldnt recommend that though!

I got glutenned heating food in and unclean microwave, and the food was covered. I wouldn't let her use it. Absolutely new toaster.

Thank you for the information. Do you know if any chemicals have gluten in them? I would assume not but well I have no idea about chemicals. I use Fantastic antibacterial however I can always buy something organic like Moo Cleaner which I use sometimes as well.

Thank you for that information . It was helpful. She is sensitive even to cough drops that do not specify gluten/wheat in general. Thanks again.

I am not sure about the "cleaners" but be sure to watch hand sanitizers they have alcohol in them and that is bad. I know Purell is gluten-free and as far as hand soap goes soft soap and Dial are gluten-free but of course you always want to check the ingredients and with the manufacturers as the recipes and solutions can change without notice. You for sure need to get a new toaster for just her and I too always make sure I wipe out my microwave before I use it myself. You should also keep a set of pans that you only make her food in as pans tend to absorb what is cooked in them over time.

Thank you for the helpful information. See we have 6 people in our house. 4 kids & 2 adults. We don't have enough space in our house for her to have seperate pans etc. We were hoping that with my OCD & cleanliness that that would help out a little. Thank you for the valuable information :)

I wanted to say Kudos to you for actually taking the time to investigate this, and not taking the easy "oh she's just the ex-wife" approach. Not everyone would have their forst response to be respectful of the ex.

I agree--very refreshing! :D

Welcome Chrissy,

I would get her a new toaster to use for her gluten-free breads--they can be bought very inexpensively at WalMart or the like for about $10. As for cleaning the inside of the toaster oven or microwave, I use a cloth and hot, soapy water. I use Clorox Greenworks dish soap, but there are may other gluten-free brands like Dawn or Ivory.

Washing out the oven and being careful to place her food on a plate or foil should be just fine :)

Let us know if there's anything else we can do for you.

It would be far easier just to have a separate oven for her. But I'm curious what you put in it? We don't have one and have no need for it. I have a separate toaster for my daughter. Just a cheap one. Works just fine.

I had a toaster oven many years ago. I guess I thought I needed one because my parents had one. They do use theirs a lot for some kind of meat that I don't make. London Broil I think.

You can get bags for use in the toaster. Not sure if they will work in a toaster oven or not.

I have had two countertop convection ovens and I use them a lot. I cook chicken breasts often and it not only is faster, uses less energy, doesn't heat up the kitchen, but it bakes/broils a beautifull piece of chicken.

I've never used a pop-up toaster. To me, real toast was putting the butter on the bread first, and then toasting. Of course, just like there are two kinds of families for real mayonaise vs. salad dressing (miracle whip), there are two kinds of toaster families. We never had a pop-up toaster when I was growing up. :D

best regards, lm
