How to Clean a Toaster


Tired of seeing toast crumbs on your counter? It may be time to clean your toaster. Learn how to clean a toaster quickly and effectively to prevent messes from occurring on your counters.

Things You'll Need

  • Toaster
  • Garbage pail
  • Damp cloth
  • Vinegar
  • Unplug toaster and allow to cool after use.

  • Turn the toaster over--upside down--over the garbage pail. Shake out any loose crumbs.

  • Hold the toaster upright and depress claps beneath the toaster. This will open the "trap doors" on the bottom of the toaster.

  • Use a damp cloth to the remove fine crumbs which did not "shake out." Press metal clasps to fasten the bottom of the toaster after it's clean.

  • Rinse cloth and wipe the exterior of the toaster to remove smudges and fingerprints.

Tips & Warnings

  • Wipe the exterior of a stainless steel toaster with a cloth dipped in vinegar to make it shine!
  • Clean your toaster regularly to prevent fires! A fire can start very easily if large crumbs or a chunk of bread gets lodged in the toaster.
