Someone left a plastic bag on top of my red toaster oven and it melted into the finish. How do I remove the melted plastic without damaging the red finish?

You may want to try Goo Gone. It can be found in many places and while I was at the local Dollar Tree store, they had small bottles of it there:
Not sure it will work but it doesn't, really shouldn't, harm the finish on your t-oven. Good luck!
If you have a chrome toaster you can use nail polish remover. I've done it.
You could try contacting the manufacturer.
My wife accidentally placed bread on a hot burner on the glass top stove and the plastic melted on the burner. I made a paste from dish washer powder and let is sit over night with a damp paper towel over top.
Just yesterday, I had a similar experience! A plastic bread wrapper (with bread) melted on a burner cover. What a mess!
I applied Goo Gone to the cover, and let it "soak" for awhile. I was able to remove SOME of the plastic wrapper/color printed residue. But, there is still enough of it left, that the cover will have to be treated with something else, or just "trashed." Do try the Goo Gone, and see if that works completely, in your situation. Good luck!
Try just warming the toaster just until the bag is slightly soft and than peeling it off.
Many many thanks for all of your suggestions. I really appreciate your trying to help me with this! I thought it might be helpful to someone else with this problem to post some feedback. I have tried the Goo Gone and the ammonia. Neither helped. I don't want to try the acetone because my toaster oven is candy apple red and I'd prefer the melted plastic on it than to take the color off.
I used a damp Mr. Clean magic eraser and it actually worked on my black toaster over. OMG. I thought that bread bag would be on there forever. Yea!
Just wanted to thank the person who posted about the Magic Eraser! I had put off trying to clean my red toaster oven for three months, not wanting to ruin the finish. I heated it just slightly, gave a tug at the plastic, and was amazed that it actually pulled off with little resistance, except at the edges.
The Magic Eraser works on stainless steel finishes, too! Thanks for the help!
I had my toaster/convection oven door open and the plastic wrap from some tortilla shells fell on the inside of open door. How can I remove this? Any help would be appreciated.
Have you tried WD40 It has cleaned anything I have applied it to It would not damage any thing to try it. and then wash off good when complete with a mild vinegar water.
