Pampered Chef Toaster Bags
0

7 posts in this topic

I was looking at the new Pampered Chef catalog thinking about purchasing a pizza stone when I saw something new. They are making toaster bags that you can put your bread, french toast, pizza etc., into and toast in any toaster and not contaminate your toast or the toaster. They are reuseable up to 10 times each and cost $10.00 for 4 bags, kinda pricey. They say it toasts golden and crispy. Has anyone used them yet? Do they work?

I am especially interested since my student will be returning to college and it may be difficult to guarantee a dedicated gluten free toaster in the cafeteria.

Also, would anyone recommend baking stones for pizza and/or cookies over air bake type cookie sheets? Thanks everyone!

I bought a baking stone from Pampered Chef. Since purchasing it, I won't use a regular pan anymore. It toasts things evenly, doesn't burn, etc. Also, if you bake something like french fries, it gets nice and crispy because the moisture from freezing it is absorbed into the stone. Cookies are great baked on the stone also. I highly suggest it and am actually planning on buying another, sometimes 1 just isn't enough!

No, haven't tried it.

As long as those bags don't have holes in them or something to let the heat through, they should work :D

Sounds like a good idea for someone in a situation like that at college, though for personal use at home, you'd be better off buying a toaster for $10 instead of four bags for $10.

My mom's friend gave me a toaster bag and I just got back from my aunts house where I used it. It worked well. You just put the gluten-free bread in the toaster bag (defrosted) and it toasts well!! Just be careful when taking it out of the toaster as it catches steam and can burn you. I'm going to buy another pack since my aunt accidently threw it out. (they're good for 10 uses I think....)

I bought some of the Pampered Chef Toaster Bags to use when we went on vacation this past December. They worked good as far as toasting the bread, and I was glad to not have to haul our gluten-free toaster along with us! It is a huge 4 slot thing that works great for us at home, but would have been a pain to bring. My only complaint with the bags was that after a few uses(about 5) they got holes in them from touching up against the heating elements. I had to throw them out before I used them "10 times" like it says on the instructions. Also, I was concerned about the crumbs that they picked up on the outside of the bag. I still had to be careful not to contaminate the toast. They are also a bit pricey, so I figured next year when we go on a vacation I will spend the money on a cheap lightweight two slice toaster that can be our traveling gluten-free toaster! It would be easier and less work trying to reduce the cross contamination and much cheaper. You can pick up a cheap toaster for less that $10 at Walmart, Target, Kmart, etc...

God bless,

Mariann

    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
    • Ok guys, I messed up. I ate a bag of marshmallows the same day... low and behold, with wheat starch. I did not expect that. Sneaky sneaky marshmallows with with wheat starch. fml
