Some items in our kitchen we’d be totally lost without.
I mean where would we be without our humble toaster? Stood waiting for the grill to heat up and then battling with it not instantly burning? No thanks.
So with it being such a staple for so many of us, you might think you know your beloved toaster pretty well.
But after all this time of relying on it for a quick snack or a tinfoil-wrapped brekky to munch on the way out the door, foodies only just noticing a ‘hidden feature’.
And for those lucky enough to have it on their toaster, it will make cleaning up the kitchen appliance a whole lot easier.
Leaving a lot of people in shock, a TikToker revealed the handy little toaster secret in a video.
Australian cleaner Kacie is best known for her large following as The Big Clean Co on the popular video platform, but she's now also known as 'the toaster master' – we’ve just decided, ok?
According to Kacie, this hidden compartment is supposed to catch all the leftover crumbs from our tasty slices of toast.
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.
“When did you last clean out your toaster tray?” she asks, shaking cleaning TikTok.
The video has racked up millions of 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."
