Gluten Free Toasters and Three Bakers Bread

I am in love with Three Bakers Gluten-Free 7 Ancient Grains bread. It is hearty, and it is delicious. This totally beats out Ud’s millet chia bread. Yeah, I said it.

Three Bakers Ancient Grains

It contains amaranth, hemp, quinoa, teff, sorghum, flax, and millet. Unfortunately it has eggs, but no dairy! It’s full of beefy grains and it’s a hearty bread. That means it keeps you full longer! I love this bread. Makes me feel like I’m eating something substantial in the morning! More awesome? It’s made in a dedicated gluten-free bakery! *DISCLAIMER: Three Bakers Bread shipped me a complimentary loaf of their bread to sample and review – however, it does not affect my positive review*

Here are the ingredients:

WATER, BROWN RICE FLOUR, CORN STARCH, MILLET FLOUR, SORGHUM FLOUR, TEFF FLOUR, EGGS, CORN DEXTRIN, SUGAR, NON-GMO CANOLA OIL, POTATO FLOUR, HONEY, RICE BRAN, SUNFLOWER SEEDS, SESAME SEEDS, WHOLE GRAIN QUINOA, WHOLE GRAIN TEFF, FLAX SEEDS, WHOLE GRAIN MILLET, AMARANTH FLOUR, HEMP SEEDS, BAKING POWDER, YEAST, XANTHAN GUM, SALT, VINEGAR, ENZYMES (CALCIUM SULFATE AND ENZYMES).

You can learn more about Three Bakers and their line of frozen bread products here. It retails from $5.99 and you can order it online (unless you’re in PA that is!).

However, I am not in love with the size. Like most gluten-free bread, Three Bakers bread is smaller. And even though it says you don’t have to toast it to enjoy, I like having toast in the morning.

 And that’s where I get burned. Literally.

I bought a new toaster – a Sunbeam brand toaster to be exact – that looked bad-ass with its stainless steel exterior. It also had a warming setting and a bagel setting.

This thing burns every gluten-free item so unevenly. But that’s not even my gripe.

This thing has now burned ME! Every day, it’s like a game of Operation, trying to retrieve my small slices of bread out of the toaster when it is done. Although the toaster “pops” the bread out when it is done, because GF bread slices are so small, they don’t actually pop out. They’re not even near the top. I physically have to burn myself to get my bread slices. The other day, I turned the toaster upside down in order to avoid burning myself, and then all the crumbs came out of dead toast from the past (RIP) and my toast still didn’t come out!

I’m not going to return the toaster because I refuse to let the toaster win. Also, I lost the receipt. If you’re a rep from the Sunbeam toaster company, please contact me. We have a lot to talk about.

    For that reason alone, that’s why I prefer a toaster oven. It works so much better for GF bread.

    I feel your pain re: GF toast–literally! Invest in a pair of toast tongs…they’re a lifesaver! I think they cost around $5, and you can get them at pretty much any store that carries kitchen utensils (or you can order online). It’d be great to find a toaster redesign, but in the meantime, toast tongs are the way to go!

    Two words for you: Toast Tongs

    Yep, toast tongs. I use them to reach in and pull out my tiny, toasted Gluten Free bread. They work wonderfully!

    I bought a relatively cheap toaster at Target and it works great. I do hate that gf bread is so small though, but I tell myself it’s keeping me from overloading on carbs.

    Sounds like you need some toaster tongs! (Most underrated gluten-free kitchen gadget ever?)

      HOW HAVE I NEVER HEARD ABOUT TOAST TONGS UNTIL NOW???

    I manually pop the toaster up real hard and try to catch the bread as it pops out. Yes…it feels like I’m in 1950.

      While I also enjoy pretending like I’m living mid-century modern 24/7 – I would prefer toast that doesn’t get lodged in the toaster after toasting. I feel like if we put a man on the moon we should be able to make toaster that work properly for $30.

    I’ve had this issue so many times! Try a skewer stick and poke it out. Just don’t splinter your bread!

    Yup on the bread!! It’s all I buy now and I love it. It’s way better than Udi’s and Udi’s is still pretty darn good.

    I have found my toaster/oven does a much better job of toasting gf bread. The seven grains has excellent texture and taste, toasted or just room temp. Kudos to Three Bakers for creating a deliciously different gluten free bread.

    Holy cow, can’t believe how good 3 Bakers bread is! I have gotten used to the small size and I love that I don’t have to heat it or toast it to make and enjoy my saundwich. It’s hands down the best store bought bread I’ve found, my non gf family was even pilfering some!
