Dualit 20245 Vario 2-Slot Polished Toaster

The Classic Vario toaster is a design icon, first designed in 1947 and hand-built in England, as identified by the individual assembler's mark on the base plate. This toaster has innovative features, like the manually operated ejector level, which means that rather than "popping" the toast up, it keeps the bread warm until you eject it by pressing a lever. It is versatile with extra-wide slots (28 mm) that will accommodate larger items, eg: thick slices or bagels. All Vario toasters also fit the optional sandwich cage for toasted sandwiches and warming rack for heating buns and croissants.


Features

Special features include a mechanical timer to control toasting. There is also a selector switch to use only the slots required and an adjustable inner wire guard to grip the toast. The high lift mechanism is useful for removing small items easily. The rear foot of the toaster is also adjustable. The toaster’s output per hour is 65 slices.

Patented Pro Heat
ProHeat Elements & Accessories

Dualit Vario toaster, ProHeat elements are the only toaster elements available that have protective layer over the wires, making them virtually unbreakable.



Components and Care

The toaster is made up of a stainless steel wrap with aluminium polished castings and the parts are replaceable or repairable. The sandwich cage and warming rack are also stainless steel.

Easy cleaning with a stainless steel cover. Wipe with a damp cloth and dry or use a microfibre cloth to shine. Sandwich cage and warming rack are dishwasher safe and the toaster comprises a concealed crumb tray.

and that's pretty much it. Solidly made, in the UK, the mechanical timer gives an idiot proof way to make toast. All evenly brown and no burnt slices so far in a month of every-other-day use.
There's a rocker switch to allow a little energy saving if you only need one slice. It is however quite large and needs a square foot of worktop. Make the space.

Colour Name: Silver
We wanted a toaster that would last more than a year or so, was repairable and wouldn't end up adding to landfill. The Dualit seemed to fit these requirements, and works very well, but with a serious caveat.

We have had our toaster for around three years now, and the timer has failed twice in that time. This is potentially quite dangerous as the toaster is then permanently on and could cause a fire. While the toaster itself is built like a tank, the timer is a very cheap, plastic and poorly-made component, made in China. When my first timer failed, I took it apart, and found that it had, apparently, been wrongly assembled in the factory.

We still use the toaster daily, but are keeping a close oye on the third timer. As a chartered engineer myself, I'm completely bemused that the manufacturer hasn't sourced a better quality component given the price-point of the product.

We bought this model because Dualit had a reputation for robust quality and the toaster was stylish. The design is simple enough so we foresaw no problems - but how wrong can you be? The problem is the mechanical timer, which began sticking during the toasting process thus leaving the toaster full on when it should have switched itself off. This was annoying at first because toast got burnt, but my daughter alerted me to the fire risk (which should have been obvious). If you were dashing about in the morning (which is, let's face it, pretty normal) and left the toaster to do what an automatic toaster SHOULD do - I.E. make the toast then switch itself off - the whole device could become dangerously hot and dangerous.

When we approached Dualit with this problem they were astonishingly unhelpful. Their first response was to tell me that I should not leave the toaster unattended! I replied that the whole point of an automatic toaster is that you CAN leave it and that if I wanted to hang around watching it I might as well use the grill on the cooker and save myself the (high) cost of the toaster.

Dualit then changed tack and offered a new timer - but expected me to pay! Needless to say I was unimpressed.

It is interesting to note that I have since talked to several people who also report the same problem with the toaster and with the man who answers the phone at Dualit. (He claims to be the manager...)

Colour Name: Lime Green
In lime green this toaster is really going to make a style statement in your home -- be aware that other colours tend to cost a little less...
This is one of the more robust original styles of Dualit toasters -- they have also introduced a 'lite' range which cost a lot less, but which do feel flimsy by comparison.
The standard range comes in a variety of enamel colours or even completely stainless steel, and they operate differently to most run-of-the-mill toasters. There's no auto or timer pop-up action. Instead you manually raise the bread up, away from the heat, to see how brown it is. This is a lot more flexible than most machines -- plus you can choose to heat one set of elements for just one slice, or both to do two simultaneously.
Ours has worked perfectly for nearly eight years. It felt like a ludicrous amount of money to pay when we bought it, but has been totally reliable. Once I understood how to use it, it's easy to adjust how long you toast bread for to get the ideal crispiness -- and you can suit several people without having to faff around.
There's no pop-up mechanism to malfunction, and the main body feels very substantial. I did have to stop one guest from almost twisting the dial off in his hand when he tried to turn it the wrong way!

You can get plenty of replacement parts for these, so if anything does wear out (as it surely must... eventually) I'm pretty confident we'll be able to keep the toaster going indefinitely, which actually makes it reasonably good value. It's also a handsome thing to have on display, and has been very easy to keep clean.
8/10

IF YOU CAN'T BE BOTHERED TO READ ALL THIS JUST PUT 'DUALIT TOASTER TIMER' INTO GOOGLE AND YOU'LL GET THE IDEA.

This is the first time I've ever written a review on amazon. I do so because I am so disappointed in this toaster and Dualits customer service.

I'm willing to bet all the good reviews for this toaster are by people who have owned it for less than a year!

I bought this toaster for £160 in 2009. I loved the way it looked and, as many have said, it looked simple and well built. My logic was, 'yes it may be expensive but it will last so long it will be worth it' - I was WRONG!

Before the toaster was three years old the timer started to stick, leaving the toaster permanently on. The first we knew of this was when our kitchen nearly went on fire! Alarmed by this I contacted Dualits customer services by email. They replied that firstly it was my fault it nearly burned down my kitchen as it says in the instruction manual it should be watched at all times and secondly, as the timer was a 'mechanical part it was susceptible to failure'. They offered to sell me a replacement timer for £27.50 that I would have to fit myself. I pointed out that a £160 toaster should last for a lot longer than 2 and half years and that they should supply the timer free of charge. I was certainly not paying £27.60 for something that will only last another 2 years. I could buy a replacement toaster for less than that, and that one might last more than 2 and half years. The reply I got was frankly staggering. In an email that was aggressive in tone (and called me by the wrong name) I was told that this timer was not a low quality one made in China but an excellent piece of engineering made in France.
