Excellent toaster. Bought to replace a short-lived toaster
4 October 2014
Summary: Excellent toaster. Bought to replace a short-lived toaster, and this one is going strong so far. The feature where you can lift the toast to see how it's doing, whilst toasting is still in progress is very useful. Ditto the 'bagel' setting which lets you toast just the inside of the slice. Well made and shouls last for years (I hope!).
Summary: Took me a while to choose a toaster and I am happy with this. Toasts evenly, fast enough, consistent. I like the sandwich cages for toasting small items like slices of baguette It is a little hard to clean as there is a ridge between the chrome and the colour finish so crumbs stick in there.
Summary: I have found that no matter what setting it is on it does not brown evenly - not impressed. Should have gone for a cheaper toaster - am sure that on this occasion paying more does not mean you get a better product.
Summary: Nobody gave us a toaster for our wedding, so we finally decided to buy our own. We have been married 28 years! This 4 slice toaster from Dualit is both a joy to look at and a joy to use. The controls feel solid and well made with an overall impression of quality. Some reviewers have said it only toasts on one side. I wonder if they have accidentally pressed the bagel button which is designed to only toast the insides of a sliced bagel. We love it.
Summary: Apparently, Dualit have resisted the urge to make a pop up toaster for years. I wish they had resisted it a little longer. Toaster looks nice. It makes adequate toast - and when I say "adequate" I mean as good as a 10 pound pop up off of the 80s. Your first piece will take a lot longer than subsequent ones because the plates aren't hot yet. Most toasters now compensate for this but not the cunning folks at Dualit!
Summary: I've wanted a Dualit for years, so treated us to this - which is considerably cheaper than the premium Dualit toasters. It does toast okay, but I found the 'browning' is not even throughout, despite whatever it toasts.
