This is the only kind of toaster I will ever buy, and probably the last one you will every need to buy.

Summary: It is expensive, but it lasts like the old fashioned toasters your grandmother had. I have had one for over 20 years and it still works like new. I bought this as a gift. When my children needed toasters, we got them this one. It is dependable, and makes great toast. It does take up a bit more counter space than some other models as it is a bit deeper, but it has an attractive retro quality.
Summary: This is the first time I've been compelled to write a product review. I saw all the mixed reviews before purchasing, but didn't want them to be true because I love the look of this toaster and at this price figured it has to be a quality item. It didn't work the first time I tried it. Then it worked fine for about 2 months. Now it will only heat up about 50% of the time. What a rip off.
Summary: I've had this toaster for at least 12 years. It's a workhorse. The only complaint that I have at this point is that the chrome gets some marks on it that I can't seem to keep off. I've tried just about everything and even though they are small, I don't like it. The toaster is fine and it gets a workout when I have a full house. We have had absolutely no problems with it.
Summary: This toaster was very nice until the timer kept getting stuck and the heating elements stay on, so you would go do something, come back and your kitchen is filled with smoke and depending on what you may have in there, this could be a MAJOR fire hazard.
No better than any other toaster, but 10 times the price!

Summary: No better than a $25.00 toaster… Who needs to pay all that money and then have to preheat every time… And still get uneven toasting… Thanks to Amazon's great return policy we were saved for wasting a whole lot of money on this no-better-than-average toaster.
Summary: This is a difficult review for me. My new Dualit is replacing one that I had to replace after 13 years of very, very happy ownership and daily use after the heating elements failed, and that I would easily give 5 stars. My new Dualit has several improvements - the mechanical timer is noticeably quieter than the older unit (though that makes it harder to hear across my kitchen).
Dualit 2-Slice Toaster Chrome, what a cool Toaster.

Summary: This is a quality made toaster, designed very well, the toast as others have said once toasted brings out flavors that a cheap toaster could never bring forth, High makes to Amazon that stated this toaster was like new, yet could not be sold as a brand new toaster, good job Amazon, and to the crafts man and woman from England that produced a quality product, the question posed, is the Dualit toaster the Rolls Royce of toasters?
Summary: I replaced my old Dualit 2 slice toaster with this new one. I like this toaster better than the old one because dials are easy to operate and the place where you put your toast or bagels are wider. I would recommend this toaster to anyone.
