If you have trouble getting toast out of your toaster because the toast doesn't pop up enough above the top or because you have sensitive fingers I highly recommend using wooden tongs.
I have 3 kids who all love toast. In order to help them with their independence, I got these awesome wooden tongs that make it easier to grab the toast out without the risk of burning or electrocution. My 4-year-old has been able to make her own toast for the last year (with supervision).
The tongs have a magnet in them that allows me to stick them straight on the side of the toaster.
It is a simple tip but I hope it helps someone.
