Product Description

Colour: Red

Product Description

The Dualit Vario Toaster combines simplicity and sophistication perfectly. With extra wide 28mm slots to accommodate a Sandwich Cage and the award winning ProHeat elements, a patented design which increases toasting efficiency & element longevity, every toaster has a removable crumb tray and an adjustable rear foot. Manually operated the Dualit toaster features switches to control the degree of browning and an ejector system which means that the toast does not pop up but stays warm until the ejector lever is pushed up.

Product Description

Designed to withstand the rigours of regular use within a commercial kitchen, this 4 slice toaster from Dualit in red features award-winning ProHeat elements and extra wide 28mm slots, to fit even the thickest bread, teacakes and sandwiches (using a Dualit sandwich cage, available separately). A mechanical timer allows precise control of toasting and a manually operated ejector lever keeps items warm until required, while a high lift mechanism allows easy and safe removal of small items. This Dualit toaster also features a selector switch meaning only the slots needed are heated, saving energy in quieter periods and allowing for consecutive toasting.

Colour Name: Stainless Steel
After buying many cheaper toasters we decided to see if the Dualit was really worth the money.
And yes, it is, every penny.
Its simple timer mechanism means YOU decide how you want your toast, bagels, crumpets, rolls, toasted sandwiches etc etc.
Works perfectly with frozen bread, for thicker slices you can even heat them up a bit, then leave them in the warm toaster for a while for the centre to defrost, then heat again to finish them off to perfection.
It's the only toaster we found that can cope with odd shaped slices of bread made in our bread machine without jamming up and burning them.
The build quality is robust and this is the only domestic appliance we own that we could actually repair ourselves. You can order spare parts so this toaster really might last for ever!
And it's made in the UK.....

Do you like Aga's, flagstone floors and Golden Retrievers? Do you remember when summers were hot and winters cold? When you could go out with a quid in your pocket, have a good evening and still come home with ten bob change? Well then this may be just the toaster for you. Robust, traditional and evocative of a simpler age.

The trouble with nostalgia though, is that it comes with its built-in trash filter, something that makes you forget all the not-so-good aspects of things past. Like the fact that, however cute they were, a lot of things back then didn't actually work very well. TV pictures (black and white) ghosted in and out of focus, cars invariably broke down on the family holiday, and if you went anywhere on the weekend, well it was shut.

This item is similar. It looks great, but ask it to do its basic job, expecting in return a uniform, golden slice, and you'll be disappointed. Truth is, you'd be better off throwing the bread up into the air, while your other half tries to incinerate it on the way down with a blowlamp.

In other words, the output is a tad variable. Heat distribution internally is poor, with the result that, no matter how you play with the clockwork (no really, it is) timer, one side will always come out more done than the other. Even on the same side, one part can be almost black while the rest is as white as, well, untoasted bread, really. Thin bread is better than thick (walk away after inserting thick bread and you'll be able to communicate your annoyance to the manufacturers by smoke signals).

However, all is not bad news. For a start, Dualit obviously have a sense of humour, something that is clear by the price.

Colour Name: Stainless Steel Verified Purchase
Fed up with having to change my toaster just after the warranty expires, I bought the Dualit from Amazon in 2004 (3.5 years ago) so this is a long term review. I thought that as long as parts remain available it would last a lifetime and I'd be dumping less landfill. I was attracted by its great looks and reputation. However, the performance is quite average.

+ Looks and feels great

- About ten times more expensive than a 'cheap' toaster.

- It doesn't cope well with non-standard size slices and as I make my own bread the slices often poke over the top and so taller slices may have an untoasted end.

- Bread is unevenly toasted.

- The time needed to toast a slice of bread depends on type of bread (white toasts faster) and how fresh it is. As the timing duration relies on a timer and not a sensor, it's dependent on your judgement, so rather hit or miss. Difficult to explain when mother in law visits!

- Mine is the four slice toaster. I can select whether to heat two or four elements, but heating an odd number of slices is a waste of energy in the unused slot. I suggest a four way switch be incorporated in future models.

- The clockwork timer failed after 3 years of daily use - There are many reports of failing timers on the internet so it seems to be common. More importantly THIS IS A FIRE RISK as the Dualit just carries on toasting. It really is poor design as it should have been fail-safe. Dualit charge around £25 for a self-fit timer including delivery but kindly agreed to send one out free of charge as a 'one off' which was great news and prompted me to up my rating from two to three stars.

Colour Name: Stainless Steel
Having had approx 7 toasters in the last 16 years, we decided to take the plunge and invest in a Dualit.
It arrived yesterday (full marks to Amazon as estimated delivery date was 17-19 Jan) and I can honestly say that the toast it produces is vastly different to that which you get from a normal, standard type of toaster.
For starters it's far crisper so when you bite it there's a definite crunch. It also tastes different (don't know why)and toasts much more evenly and much faster. It's very easy to keep an eye on how brown the toast is getting and the fact that it doeasn't pop up means that you can leave the kitchen and come back to hot toast instead of cold rubber.
Most people would probably faint at the idea of spending such a lot of money on a toaster but considering that it is repairable it could theoretically last forever so will pay for itself eventually. In the meantime you have the most delicious toast ever.
I have no problem with recommending this toaster to anyone who is seriously interested.
