Ok so I wanted to take a few quick moments to share with you the secret to how you can share your gluten-consuming family’s toaster without fear of contamination!

Toasters are usually a hazardous looking object for coeliac disease sufferers.

With harmful crumbs all over the place, it if often a coeliac’s worst nightmare to try and create “safe” toast.

I have spent many hours laboriously grilling my bread, and even considered buying my own specific toaster.

However, living between my house, my boyfriend’s house, and my student house – this would not have been fun to lug around with me!

Toaster bags are a great way to make gluten free toast, without the hassle of carrying round your own toaster!

The best way to gluten free toast!

Available at many online and superstores, these handy bags (I got mine from Wilkinsons!) are great for creating perfect toast.

Just literally pop the bread in the bag, and then toast as usual!

I was worried the bread would go soggy or toast funny, but it was as if I was toasting it as normal!

You can reuse these bags many times, (I’ve had mine for months!) and even fill them with sandwiches to toast in one go!

So for any of you that have been struggling with the contamination issues of toaster, grab yourself a toaster bag and try it!

  1. Cheese and onion toasties made in these are the best – much better than a sandwich maker!

  2. I use these all the time in the toaster at work. Without these I would be stuck. I live in New Zealand and I get my kids living in the UK to send me the toastie bags as there is only 1 shop here that stocks them and they are so expensive.

    1. where can we purchase the toaster bags- also tired of taking my own toaster along- last time I forgot it and had to buy another one as I left it 4 hrs away

  3. After using the reusable toaster bags for a while I started to worry a bit; on one occassion there was a hole in the bag, which made me think that they are not so safe as they say… I’m now trying to find good paper bags… please let me know if you know of any good brand (and where to get them!). Best, Julizach

  4. Did you ever find an alternative that would work with conveyor toasters? I found that the normal toaster bags don’t work with hotel toasters sadly
