Regrets...this is one of them
Bought this 12 years ago and this is second time an element has blown. One of the marketing phrases that sold me was "parts are replaceable" but I found that it costs as much to replace element as to buy a new fancy toaster so this time I don't think I will replace it. What a shame, as it cost a few hundred $$$ and I thought the kids would leave home before the toaster did. Long on style but short on substance.
Purchased in June 2008 for A$300.00.

We love our toaster
This toaster looks amazing on our kitchen bench. We have used or for English muffins and crumpets and they have come out beautifully. We love the simple dial for time and the simple lever to lift up the bread. Knowing the name of the person who assembled it is another beautiful touch. We wanted something simple and worked well (after our previous Breville toaster with all its sliding dials and buttons failed) and this totally fits the bill. I love it!
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.
looks awesome in the kitchen
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
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!
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.
over priced and lacks good design
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.
