“If it fits in a toaster, I can cook it!”

"If it fits in a toaster, I can cook it!” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images.

“If it fits in a toaster I can cook it” was posted on Twitter by heather gilmore on July 15, 2008. “‘If it fits in a toaster, I can cook it,’ one man said on a recent morning, reading the words off an $8 kitchen towel to the delight of his female companions” was printed in The Journal News (White Plains, NY) on August 25, 2008. The saying probably originated on a gift item such as this kitchen towel.

25 August 2008, The Journal News (White Plains, NY), “Witticisms and beyond fill Cold Spring spot” by Mary Shustack, pg. 1D, col. 1:
Spend any amount of time in The Country Touch, and you’ll likely hear something kind of funny.

It’s giggling. And it usually comes from customers reading the Cold Spring shop’s trademark collection of items bearing all kinds of sayings.

“If it fits in a toaster, I can cook it,” one man said on a recent morning, reading the words off an $8 kitchen towel to the delight of his female companions.
