    Why, when I toast a bagel in our toaster, can I hardly pick the damn thing up because it's so hot, but when I toast either bread or a crumpet, for the same time in the same toaster, I can pick it up fine:wacko:

    Water content I'd guess.

    because it's more solid than bread or crumpets which loses heat quickly through their holey nature. bagels retain their heat under their 'skin'.

    Do bagels not have holes in them? :tongue:

    Ooof, yes I have been done by a pitta before. Take it out of the toaster and give it a little squeeze and a superheated jet of steam shoots out onto your fingers!! Can be nasty.

    Simple - don't use a toaster. Bagels are much nicer toasted under the grill only on their 'cut' side

    especially the cinnamon and raison ones, they get even hotter than plain ones.

    Ditto.

    My fave bagel filling has to be smoked salmon with cream cheese and a light squeeze of lemon juice. MMMMMMMMmmmmm:tongue:

    Why is everyone picking on bagels ? Have they not been through enough with being forced to smoke 40 Woodbines a day under lab conditions ?

    Yes, it is cruel to put bagels in a toaster but, apparently, Koreans love them!
