    It kind of ruins the whole idea of toast, even with a new toaster.

    We also have a glass kettle so we can see inside it, just in case.

    Ours didn't get binned until the mouse got roasted in there while I was using it. Not a pleasant smell.

    Thanks...I just checked inside my kettle. It certainly needs a good clean but thankfully no boiled residents.

    I've heard of mice being roasted in ovens...

    My sisters dryer caught fire a few years ago from being too fluffy!! So I de-fluff mine every time!

    I do empty the toaster when I notice the build up of crumbs around the toaster. it has a regular spot on the counter, but it has been put inside the cupboards more often of late. I do think about the creepy visitors that could get into it, but so far we have not had any. I would think the build up of crumbs could be fire risk too. I know the smoke alarms will often go off when we make toast. marie

    I give the toaster a good shake upside down just before I clean the kitchen floor.

    Dp told me he has a friend who had a deep fryer years ago. They used to allow the oil to cool and solidify before packing it away to reuse at a later date. When he went to empty it one day after many many uses apparently they found a well fried mouse.

    So, for that reason I am not allowed to own a deep fryer.
