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

How come mankind can invent a dazzling technological marvel to transport humans to and from the moon but cannot make a decent toaster? Hang on, what about the Dualit, the Rolls Royce of domestic toasters, designed to not only look good but reliably...

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?)

Our Toaster is a good 30 years old now & going strong still though we have had to have it serviced for new elements during its lifetime. I just couldn't imagine life without it and certainly we did consider this before arranging for the service. The...

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....

Duelit Toaster


I have run a guest house for eight years and found this toaster to be the best yet.

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).

I was slightly apprehensive when buying this toaster because it's more expensive than any other I've bought, although it's at the lower end of the Dualit price scale. However, I need not have worried - I'm delighted with it. It does a really good job...

Classic Design


Does exactly what it says on the label! It looks good & it works. I've gone through so many cheap toasters that look good but start to fail within weeks. This one cost a little more but is worth every penny.

Very pleased with toaster, looks really stylish and is much lighter than the other Dualit models. Looks great with matching Dualit black and chrome kettle.

This is a fantastic thing to have in the kitchen. The toast it produces is spot on, mine does sandwiches too, so the kids get fed, and fast, when they storm home. It looks great, is user serviceable (note perhaps to the guy worrying about service...

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...
