Pampered Chef Toaster Bags

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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

    • Teresa,  You posted this same question yesterday.  You did get a response, but you did not answer the questions asked which might help you.  We can not diagnose you over the internet.  We are not doctors, but just people who can not consume gluten.  We share tips, our personal experiences, and ask questions about the gluten free diet.   If you have or suspect DH, read through the DH section for coping strategies.  Keep to the gluten free diet.  Talk to your doctor!  It might NOT even be related to celiac disease!  
    • My suspicion is dehydration caused by too much fiber. Combined with your cold, fever and perhaps any medications, loss of appetite and the high fiber content of the chia, slowing down the passage of the post nasal drip thereby giving it more time to irritate. I had a similar experience with Graviola during a phase of anorexia, when I would take it without food. By the way, Cold-Eze does work.
    • Welcome!   Let me put your mind at ease.  While is true that some celiacs have fertility issues, it is usually because they are undiagnosed and not being treated.   I think your approach of focusing on your health for the next six months to a year prior to conception is an excellent idea.  Not only will it help insure a healthy pregnancy, but you will be able to handle and care for that baby for the next few decades!   I was in a dedicated gluten free bakery and saw a young family with a six month old baby boy.  I love babies and struck up a conversation.  They said that the wife had been sick with odd issues  and finally got diagnosed with celiac disease.  Six months  this later, she got pregnant after they had been trying for three years.   So, learn the gluten free diet.  Choose healthy foods and try to avoid processed junk foods (not good for anybody), excercise gently, reduce the stress in your life, and I bet you will be fine!   Green stools can be a sight of rapid transit. It could be gluten, a virus, or food poisoning.  Stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Celiacs have leaky guts, so you might have developed an intolerance.  How long have you been gluten free?  Try reading our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.   Take care.  
    • I have granuloma on both of my feet and got them after I had my daughter. She's now 2!! Not eating gluten has not effected it in the least.  I had a major flair up after my colonoscopy and an exploratory surgery, neither had anything to do with my feet . 
    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
