Time For A New Toaster

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We did replace our toaster with an inexpensive toaster and we hate how it toasts. We are finding the gluten free breads toast differently.

What brand of toaster do you like?

I'm looking for the same thing! I've bought two toasters since I went gluten-free and don't like either one of them.

I bought myself a new crumb-free toaster oven as it is so nice to broil/heat, roast, etc. small quantities sometimes in addition to making toast. It is a Black and Decker and got it half price.

Is that the one that takes you 3 hours to toast two slices of bread? laugh.giflaugh.giflaugh.gif

The very one! I was wondering whether that would be mentioned. That bread was something special, that's for certain. Thank goodness it only takes a few minutes for all other breads I've tried. :P

I had an ancient (like 20 years old!) black & decker toaster oven. It still worked, but cleaning the inside was hazardous, it had sharp edges, and no slide out crumb catcher tray. After reading something on here I decided to bite the bullet and got a new one, also a black & decker. It's taking some getting used to, but cleaning is much easier! And I often also use it to warm up left-overs, which is why I prefer it over a regular toaster.

We toast a LOT in our house and have a Red (heart healthy!) Hamiltion Beach Toastation.

My daughter eats Trader Joe's gluten-free bread and it leaves little BLACK, burnt crumbs. It needs

to be "swept" out daily with a little brush or it builds an awful crust fast. I keep the pan that

came with it on the oven grill all the times. There is a lot of fat

in this bread?! That's all I can come up with. Not so with Food For Life gluten-free English muffins.

Even though there is no nutritional value in either! My pet peeve....

Anyway, I would post a link but I haven't figured out how :(

You can see them on the HB website.

Nice unit, just what you want. Because of the gluten-free nature,

it will need to get replaced every 4-6 years. I got mine

on sale at K-Mart, $27 w/o tax. It has glass bulbs, which I

find far better than metal threads.

I'm looking for a plain ol' toaster...the pop-up kind. I don't need the bread to automatically lower itself or any fancy bells and whistles...no blinking lights or alarms to tell me that it's done. I had one that had a single long wide slot and now they're hard impossible to come by. It has to fit in my appliance garage so I don't want a toaster oven. I want a toaster that just toasts and does it well...you know, the kind they used to make years ago. I'm actually thinking perhaps no manufacturer knows how that's done any more. laugh.gif

We got a cheap one. I think it was around $10. Toasts just fine. The only problems are that it isn't a cool tough and the gluten-free bread is so lightweight that it throws the toast and we then have to find it.

I was in a gluten free restaurant and had a wonderful toasted sandwich. I asked how they toasted it and they told me that they just put it in a pan on the stove with NO butter or anything, just dry, and then flip it. That's what we do at home now, and we love how it comes out! :-)
