comment Can a toaster be cleaned from chametz for Pesach?
Happy Pesach to you too. My point was that I don't believe there is any reason to sell it even though it can't be Kashered. Don't see how edits address this

This is completely untrue. Bread is chametz, not a toaster. A toaster may have absorbed chametz flavor, which means you cannot use it on Pesach, but the toaster is not chametz. To the best of my knowledge, there is no prohibition in owning absorbed chametz flavor on Pesach according to anybody.

@Ziv Do you kasher all keilim that you do not plan on using for Pesach?

@DanF to be clear, it's not that the bracha is about nothing, but that it doesn't relate to the food that we ate. That is why the mishnah says that you don't say "anything" after eating certain foods--because the bracha of borei nefashot is not on the food eaten

@Danno yes, I never heard of it, it apparently wasn't published until relatively recently, and there are many works falsely attributed to the Rambam

@user6591 different opinions in Chazal: to look at his beauty, or because it was not yet Shaul's time to be king, or because women are talkative
