Why is it...?

When pulling things from the toaster, why is it:

*Regular toast is hot,
*English muffins are noticeably hotter!

*But Bagels are like handling fireballs from Hades!!!

(I leave the cold water faucet running to save time whenever I fix a toasted bagel!)

Density. The denser the food the hotter it will feel.

That is what paper towels are for. Fold one up and use it to hold the bagel. Then you can use it to wipe the creamed cheese off your chin

Call me crazy but you could let the bagels cool a bit before spreading the cream cheese. Not only will that keep your hands from burning but the cooler bagel won't melt the cream cheese while you're trying to spread it.
