Toveling pop up toaster

Question:

Hello, my Rabbi said to follow the view that pop up toasters do not need toiveling because they are plugged in (I know not everyone agrees). Does it matter which part of the toaster touches the bread? (E.g., the metal on top is thicker so is that “worse” than the little strips of metal inside?)

 

Answer:

According to this veiw no electronic utensils need tevila, which is not the view of most poskim. Regarding the toaster if the two parts of an item are attached they are considered one regarding tevila.

Best wishes
