Today, I came home from a funeral to find that my mother had cleaned my house. She thought it would be a good idea to put my toaster in the dishwasher to clean it. My toaster is fried, and she thinks everything's fine. FML

You lost a toaster — you’ll get over it. Just appreciate the fact that your mother was trying to help.

Edit: Unless it wasn’t motivated by her desire to help but instead a desire to control. That’s a completely different scenario.

I'm a bit curious how it got fried. I mean did she leave it plugged in when she put it in there or what? Otherwise water shouldn't do all that much to it, it's just plastic and metal.

Most toasters aren’t “electronics.” Electrical, yes. Electronics, no. If there’s no computerized parts, just let it completely dry before plugging it in and it should be fine. (I went to school for four years for electro-mechanical technologies)

A toaster won't be ruined by putting it in the dishwasher unless you are just as unthoughtful as your mom, and plugged it in while still wet.
Heating elements do not get water damaged easily. Think stove. They can, however, short out if you plug them in while still wet.
