Best toaster on the market any where in the world

published

This toaster looks so good in our kitchen cool copper ends and highly polished chrome in the middle. It can switch for one slice to two slices to three or even all four slices. Also a very good switch for toast to be warmed up again with out drying out the toast. It toast crumpets and sourdough to perfection. Every part is replaceable not a throw away toaster like a lot of other expensive toasters

Purchased in September 2019 at David Jones Online Store.

Brilliant!

published

This toaster performs brilliantly for various types of bread, whether fresh, frozen or home baked. We love the ability to select one or both slots, and tailor the toasting time to suit. The controls are simple to use, the crumb tray is sensibly located for easy emptying and cleaning. Best of all, should the heat grills or timer unit fail, they can be replaced.

Purchased in January 2019 at Kitchen Warehouse.

i really like my toaster. sometimes it does burn the toast especially with people who wind up the timer too much who have never used it. i like this way better than the digital toasters. it looks awesome too so classy would recommend for looks. i have the 2 toast slice which is all you need.

Dualit older model

published

We have an older model dualit toaster - many are available second hand on ebay. They are really solidly built, will last a long time, and you can get spares. My main complaint is that the actual toasting is not very good. I probably wouldn't buy another one, they only accept thin slices of toast as well

Nice looking toaster!

published

This is a lovely looking appliance and it works well. I like the manual pop up lever. It does what it is supposed to do, makes toast, but whether it does it better than any other toaster I'm not sure. The edges sometimes burn a little but I think that's because the bread was slightly uneven perhaps, I wasn't using presliced bread.
Looks very stylish in my new kitchen. It is expensive for a toaster but seems well built. Bit of a luxury item. Pretty happy with my purchase.

Love this old school toaster

published

Expensive but worth it. The poms know their toast. Hand built in the U.K. The kids love it. They know different toasting times for different breads. Nothing on this is automatic. Use your brain and perfect toast every time. People are looking for a box to put bread in press a button and have great toast. It is still basic cooking and you still have to think.

Finally a toaster that works

published

After years of dodgy electronic toasters, I finally have a toaster that just does one thing well - it toasts. No gimmicks, no electronics, just a toaster & a rotary timer.

It seems expensive but once you use it you will realise that it will outlast 4 of those $100 gimmicky toasters.

Hopeless

published

This has been a disappointing purchase. Frustratingly variable toasting results. After only six months and only one slot works. The timer constantly sticking and hence incinerating toast but quite expensive to replace. I haven't pursued a repairer as I think it would be cheaper to get something that works .

Pleasantly surprised of the quality and workmanship

published

Compare to the UK not much information here in Australia. Went through the process of is it really worth purchasing the this toaster. Reviews from here and also in Australia we decided to bite the bullet. It is well built, toast are evenly cooked on each side. If this fails parts are easy to get and replace. We purchased two sandwich grills and can make cheese and tomato, and any other ideas that we can image.


over priced and lacks good design

published

Toasts unevenly. Smart to have a slot wide enough for a bagel. Lever does not lift high enough to bring smaller toast above the slot to retrieve. Means tuning the toaster off and then fish for the toast using a sharp pointed knife ! It is bulky and does not even toast evenly. I have other toasters in my life which were cheaper to purchase and are better than this over priced over rated piece of kitchen clutter.

Makes me smile!

published

A old-fashioned style toaster with a manual lever operation and a manual timer, from the company who made the first toasters with the drop-down doors. Mine is a Petal Pink/2 slice! They come in a wide range of colours and can be from 2-6 slice capacity. It is guaranteed for FIVE years and EVERY part is replaceable! I love it! Yes, it was quite expensive, but a good little investment. Buy online for the best deal!

Crossroads

published

Yes, Dualit do make a long lasting toaster and mine has now acquired a vintage look which I like. You can get Dualit toasters repaired but at the price of a regular new toaster and I am still not guaranteed that remaining electrical elements will also die. After 15 years of use I am now at a crossroads. I have to dig in deep for a new Dualit New Gen or buy one at quarter the price that I know will have a shorter life.

Not a good purchase

published

We paid $375 for this fantastic looking toaster. We anticipated that as it was made in England, and we presumed the English knew all about toast, it be a wonderful product.

Alas, we were sadly disappointed. It was almost impossible to regulate between burning or undercooking the bread, sometimes doing both with one piece.

After persevering for about a year we gave it up and purchased a product at a quarter of the cost which performs adequately; but doesn't look as good.

Consistently unreliable performance

Lasted 15 years and still going strong.

published

Very happy with this appliance we have had for over 15 years. Toasters seem to have short lives so I guess the two things I like best about this ate longevity and consistent quality of toast. It doesn't pop up when done. The toast lifting mechanism could be better. Because it dent lift straight up bit pivots it van squish a pice of toast if its not a regular shape loaf.
Reliable, consistent
Cn squish toast when ejecting and get toast stuck inside


Lasts almost forever

We have had the 4 slice version for 23 years. Yes 23. It is still working but the slots are too narrow for todays toast. The new models are much wider and we intend to purchase one shortly. We have replaced elements twice over the years which is expensive but at least we haven't put 10 toasters into landfill. This is a great old fashioned quality item.
Quality, simplicity, No flimsy high tech parts.
Initial outlay is expensive but worth it.

you are comparing apples and oranges your 23 year old toaster uses completely different technology, your review is invalid and should be removed

I agree with Marc. It's a history lesson, not a useful review at all.

Our timer stops - so it just keeps toasting until we smell burnt toast - where do we take it to get fixed ??

Hello,
Thankfully I have not had to repair my Dualit (I have a 2 slice toaster).
I checked the Dualit website for customer support and the link is - http://www.dualit.com/support/2-sandwich/faqs#question3
Their advice is if the timer is sticking, which sounds like your problem, then you need to replace the timer (I'm sure you already worked that one out!). You can order the replacement timer from them however the issue then is who does the repairs in Australia? I really do not know and would recommend you send an email to Dualit's customer support.
Hopefully this has helped.
Kind regards

Can you toast thick items like sourdough, crumpets, english muffins, etc?

I have not toasted sourdough bread in the toaster but you should be able to do that. I have toasted slices of brioche loaf in the toaster and they were great. We have also toasted both crumpets and english muffins in the toaster; no problems. I am still happy with our toaster and I still recommend it. It's great.
