Clear Plastic on the Inside Grates - Toaster

Possible Solutions

Should the clear plastic on the inside of the toaster be removed?

Some toasters have clear plastic covering the inside grates. They are high-temperature silicone sleeves to ensure the toaster bread elevators operate quietly when the bread is raised and lowered. They should not be removed.
