There’s a hidden compartment in toasters and it's blowing people's minds

The hidden compartment in toasters has left people mind-blown

A toaster is a kitchen staple in most households, but have you spotted this hidden compartment in yours?

A lot of us rely on the device every morning for a quick bite to eat before the commute to work.

But after all these years, foodies are only just noticing this hidden feature that will make cleaning the kitchen appliance a great deal easier.

The discovery that left many shocked was shared to TikTok by Australian cleaner Kacie, who is better known for her large following as The Big Clean Co on the popular video platform.

According to Kacie, the hidden compartment is supposed to catch all the leftover crumbs.

She said: "There are cleaning hacks going around the internet that are not really hacks at all, they make it harder.

"This week I was sent one. 'Clean your toaster with a hairdryer'. Just tip it in the bin."

The TikToker then put her hand under the toaster and pulled out a tiny tray that was filled with crumbs.

The video has racked up more than 2.2 million views on the platform, with a big debate taking place in the comment section.

While some claimed that they always knew about the tray, others couldn't believe it was even a thing.

One person said: "Omg I can't believe this. I always stare at it and get annoyed because of all the crumbs."

A second added: "There's a TRAY?!?!?!?"

Meanwhile, a third remarked: "Um I didn’t even know a toaster had a toaster tray?"

And a fourth said: "I didn't even know it had one until it fell out the bottom the other day."

But another user was in disbelief that so many people were unaware that toasters have a hidden compartment.

They said: "OK I understand ya'll not understanding about some things but, ya'll didn't know about toaster trays??? Like your house could catch on fire."

A lot of people didn't know about the secret tray in a toaster.

In other nifty hacks, a woman has shared a 'genius' way to remove manicure that doesn't damage your nails.

In the clip, TikTok user Emilia mixes up a solution of hot water, hand soap and oil, which she then soaks her hands in.

After soaking them for 15 to 20 minutes, she is able to gently remove the press-ons using a cuticle stick.
