One of the readers admitted that he knew about the “secret” function of the toaster, but it took 15 years to achieve such a discovery.
A forum user was shocked to discover a “hidden” tray at the bottom of his toaster. He believes that other toast lovers are not aware of this convenient feature. He published a post about this on Reddit.
Having discovered an unexpected compartment in an everyday item, its owner felt it necessary to share such a find with others. He realized that he had been cleaning his toaster incorrectly his entire life.

Over time, toasters can become very dirty due to the build-up of crumbs. Previously, the author of the post believed that it was enough to disconnect the device from the network and shake out the excess in the trash.
However, there is a much less complicated and effective way to do this, which he had no idea about before. He suggested to the Reddit audience to “clean toaster trays,” which until recently he had no idea existed.
“I didn't know about this thing, I usually just unplug and dump it in the trash. So there are toaster trays and I'm sure others don't know about them either,” he wrote.
The forum user also shared a photo of his toaster, showing the tray pulled out from the device. All the crumbs collect on it, and all that remains is to simply remove them and throw them away.
It turned out that he was right. He's not the only one who didn't know there was an easier way to clean a toaster.
“I haven't looked but I bet mine looks like the top of an apple,” one person wrote.
Another added: “Wow I just found a whole loaf worth of crumbs.”
“Very strange, I just made this yesterday for the first time in a long time. Besides, we might have the same toaster!” – wrote another.
Someone admitted that he had been working towards such a discovery for 15 years, another user warned that if you do not clean the tray in a timely manner, there is a risk of fire.
According to an expert from Morphy Richards, such cleaning should be done “at least once a week.” The crumbs in the tray may smoke or burn, so this must be done regularly.
