This term is advice for someone who appears to have left the house without looking in a mirror.
Their appearance is so disheveled, it is assumed that they used the reflection of a toaster to check their look. (makeup, clothing, etc.)
It traces back to a time when banks gave away free toasters to new clients, and refers to a faulty toaster being the cause.

Dano: "Yeah. It's like she used her toaster as a mirror. She needs to 'switch banks'."
