They say it works best with old and cheap toasters, not one of the newer models.
Would you try it? Personally I think it would be safer to use Toaster Bags - make lunch or snacks for you and your family fast, and keep your kitchen appliances clean!

Milk jug to lunch box, ideal for breakfast or snacks. .... Pretty recycling!
A milk jug makes a great lunch box, because not only is it food-safe, but it is the perfect size to keep your sandwiches from getting squished!

Have you ever wanted to reuse a container, but wish you could take the printing and picture off? Well, now you can!
It's easy! You need pure acetone (located in the beauty section near the finger nail polish removers), a rag, and a container.
In a dish pan, pour enough acetone on the rag to saturate it. (Make sure you are in a well ventilated area and are wearing gloves.) Then wrap the rag around the container and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. It may take longer depending on what brand container you are working on. Check the container by rubbing the paint. If it wipes off, you are good to go! Just keep wiping! It'll come right off. If it doesn’t come of easily, keep soaking. You may need to re-saturate your rag.

Make sure to get all of the extra air out of the bags before taping them down.
