Chick-Fil-A Employees Can't Believe This Disgusting Bun Toaster

Chick-fil-A is, without a doubt, one of the most beloved fast food restaurants in the United States. According to USA Today, for the seventh year in a row, the "Eat Mor Chikin" quickservice eatery was at the top of the heap on the list of best fast food chains on the recently released American Customer Satisfaction Index. Clearly, this venture that Truett Cathy began in 1946 with his now-famous Dwarf House grill, where his original chicken sandwich was born, is something that would make him proud today. From its iconic waffle fries to its refreshing lemonade to its sandwich selection, Chick-fil-A just does things right. Perhaps, that's why a recently posted photo on Reddit of what appears to be a Chick-fil-A bun toaster has us scratching our heads.

First, it should be noted that Chick-fil-A's buns are like none other. Just the thought of that toasted-to-perfection bun with a little butter and those two pickles – no more, no less – gets our taste buds going. But after seeing the photo of a very dirty toaster, we are feeling, well, conflicted, and if you read through the comments of others on the thread, you'll see we're in good company. 

Seeking a clean bun toaster

If you check out the ChickFilAWorker Reddit post, the Redditor seems to have posted the photos as a cautionary tale, encouraging readers to "clean your bun toaster!

They went on to share that the toaster was acting weird, and upon further inspection (i.e., they opened the front cover), they found that it was absolutely filthy inside. Crumbs were stuck and coated on just about every working and nonworking part inside the bun toaster. This definitely prompted some interesting comments from the community. One individual wrote, "This is disgusting." But then they quickly followed up with, "Imma keep eating there tho." Like we said, it really does incite some conflicting emotions for those who love Chick-fil-A. 

Still, another asked for step-by-step instructions regarding how to open the toaster, while another helpful poster suggested that the toaster needed new conveyor belts and went on to share how to do it. And then there were those indignation posts with one Redditor writing, "This would never fly at the location I was at. We cleaned the toaster like twice a week at least." But, we find ourselves with the Redditor who said they would like to see some after photos. They wrote, "Oof that's pretty bad, but would love to see a picture of it after cleaning!" Amen.
