Quality enjoyed long after the price is (almost) forgotten!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dualit 3 Slice Combi Toaster Polished Stainless Steel 31213 (Kitchen & Home)
If you are thinking of buying this toaster, you will no doubt be doing a deal of soul-searching as I did. You'll canvass opinions, seek out on-line reviews and generally find ways of justifying what does seem an awful lot of money on a toaster! Well, je ne regrette rien!
The build quality is superb and you know from the feel that you will have years of trouble-free service from this little beauty. It has the quality feel you would expect and it blows inferior brands clean out of the water. It's like the difference between driving a clapped-out Ford Fiesta and taking the wheel in a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow.
Supremely easy to use, there are no pop-up gimmicks, no snarled-up pieces of toast sliced too generously to fit in the slot and you cannot begin to put a price on the smug expression you'll adopt when making your breakfast! As for the toast, well fruited teacakes are our weakness and they come out well-browned on the 2 minute setting with the inside light and fluffy, not all dried-out and semi cremated as with this machine's predecessor.
Grit your teeth, pay the money, and enjoy the Rolls Royce of the toaster world! You'll not regret it.

More than five years later - an update: Well, I am still using it almost daily and it is still providing excellent service! I reckon I would have gone through 3 'El Cheapo' toasters by now, so I remain well-pleased.
