Perfect toast every time!


So when you think about it, Dualit Vario's are not that expensive when you think about it in the long run, (( if you spend $100 every year on a toaster that ends up getting tossed out because it's terrible or just stops working, within five years you...

Best available toaster


Beautiful industrial look and feel and as a bonus it makes perfect toast. You do need to set the timer by hand; there is nothing electronic in this purely mechanical device. You even need to raise the toast by pushing a little lever. Imagine! The only...

This is my second Dualit, my first, which I've had for 9 years, has been left behind with my daughter in Melbourne, and unable to live without it in London, I bought another, replacing the one which was in my flat when I rented it. Not only does this...

10 years and still going strong.....


I have had my 2 slice dualit toaster since 2002 and are very happy with it. I love the analogue feel of the timer, set it to 3 for crumpets 1.5 for toast. Has not missed a beat! I am upgrading ours to a shiny 4 slicer because we now have toast munching...

The sexiest toaster in the world. The manual timer.

Looks great but don't waste your money


I bought the Dualit Vario, thinking I had finally found the nirvana of all toasters. The beautiful stainless steel case is indeed a work of art. However the beauty is only skin deep. Even when you finally figure out where to set the low-tech rotary...

Stainless steel construction looks beautiful

Cannot cook two consecutive pieces of toast to save its life

This toaster is beautiful, with its brutalist form-over-function retro good looks. This really is retro—I don't think it has been redesigned since they first built it, beyond the addition of new colours to greet the twentyfirst century. And everything...

The timer can be a bit temperamental. Over twelve years it has gone missing three times leaving me with a month or so of tapping the timer and watching the toast. I could have replaced it, but this last time a blast of WD40 and some cycle chain lube...

st a day, the elements are near dead and the timer sticks. Which means underdone toast or burnt toast – take your pick. Aha! You can order the parts and service it yourself! But the cost of these combined items, is 40% of the price of a new Dualit...

Good looks. Sturdy build to outlast other cheaper toasters that die prematurely and are flung into the waste stream. Easy to clean, makes good toast and the timer chirp is strangely comforting.

Expensive – given that it contains just two elements, and a dirt-cheap mechanical timer – which doubtless deters most toaster buyers. Heck, it's a toaster, not a status symbol! (Or is it?)

toaster too highly. As has been indicated it WAS expensive but it has been worth every penny we spent on the purchase ..... kbelle

A truly wonderfull addition to our kitchen. Easy to clean, very reliable toaster which we would hate to be without.... Fantastic sandwich maker - my choice is toasted chicken.... and many a meal we have had of soup and toasted sandwich over the years.

I honestly cant think of any dislike other than maybe the price.... but believe me it is well worth every dollar you spend on making this purchase....

I absolutely love this toaster, we've had our 4 slicer for 10 years & it's been fantastic. I love that the toast doesn't pop up, so if you can't get to it the minute it's done, toast stays warm until you lift it out. Toasts extremely evenly, so if you...

Great toaster! Simple design with no fancy buttons. Stylish looking & will never out date. Quality is absolutely superior. Built like a tank.

Expensive, but well worth it.............. if you appreciate quality you won't mind paying for it.

One of my favourite possessions - absolutely love it. Sure, they cost a bomb but they last forever. I've been through three cars since I bought this beauty.

Looks fabulous & makes good toast. ; I've had it for many years, used every day and never had a problem.

It cost a lot (but worth every cent).
