The Dualit Lite 2 Slot Toaster combines style and brilliant design. Dualit, the British toaster company are considered to be the best on the market. Their toasters are built to last and made from the finest stainless steel and robust elements, with a non-marking sprayed rubberized finish. Features include: wide (28mm) slots for toasting bagels and tea-cakes - high lift mechanism (for easy removal of smaller items) - the highest possible wattage so toast is produced faster and crispier than ever before.

Good price that for a dualit toaster, the catering ones are superb, dont know how these compare.

Still its a good price if you like toast.

I couldn't believe it when my mrs bought one of these a year ago "to-match-the-kitchen-colours"...They look great but what a waste of money!!!

...I feel a little stupid saying it but it definitely makes the best toast & I love it! I bet she paid a lot more than this deal too.

Biggest triumph of style over substance. I paid £100 for one and it is hopeless. It doesnt even adjust for different thicknesses of bread. I realy regret buying it.

Quality brand, quality toaster. We have one, and it's ace. It does cater for all thicknesses of bread, too.

I have had a 4 slice vario for about 5 years, and the timer keeps getting stuck which is a pain, it's hard to clean, very expensive, elements only last a year, takes up a lot of space - but I LOVE my Dualit as the toast it makes is fantastic. I'd have no hesitation in buying another.

Had this toaster for over a year now and it's fab! Great price

I bought the four slice toaster a few years ago. The timer sticks, the illuminated switch flickers or doesn't work at all and the first slot toasts unevenly meaning the bread has to be turned half way through toasting.
I made the mistake of buying the sandwich cages too - don't even think about toasting anything that will turn runny such as cheese. OK if you want a toasted ham sandwich but that's about it!

Expensive for a basic toaster

Well..,Speak as you find.Have had the "Four" slice version for several years, and it is "Great". Having been employed as an Applianc Buyer for a very large Electrical Retailer, I can assure all that the failure rate for Dualit Toasters is "Miniscule" compared to the majority of "Junk" out there.

and you can buy spare elements meaning you dont have to throw it away if they fail.

good price, Im sure I seen this in Selfidges for £80

This toaster is amazing. I too thought it was basic and overpriced at first, but the toast it produces is perfected. It takes a large slice without needing to turn and creates a really nice crisp outside.

Ironically many more feature packed models make rubish toast, which is kind of the point of a toaster!

We have the 4 slot version of this - nice looking toaster, but it is pretty crap. I've tried all sorts of things, but I have yet to have a slice of toast that is brown on both sides ... I normally get 1 corner burnt, the other 3 corners still un-toasted and the other side is only just thinking about toasting ... it fascinates me how they could have built a toaster that is so bad at actually doing what it is supposed to do ...however, it's still in our kitchen as it makes a nice decoration

Sorry, total rubbish. I've had to maintain these toasters before in a commercial environment. The elements are prone to breaking, the timers stick, the switches fail. The parts are massively overpriced. They rarely toast evenly. The timer is innaccurate and needs to be set each time. There is so much thermal mass in the toaster that I need to take into account how much it has been used in the last 30 minutes before deciding how long to toast for. Why should I need to set the time every time and manually pop up the bread?

The reason they don't get returned is that people can't believe something so expensive is so useless and keep on persevering with it.

Have had a Dualit 4 slot for many years.I don't care for it at all, browning is eneven and each slot yields toast of differing colours.Far left slot only really toasts one side.
Interestingly, a mouse took up residence in the crumb tray last Winter, got the shock of it's life one late evening when I fancied some toast and I've been traumatised ever since!!!!!

Arghhhhh! Every time i use my toaster from now on i will be imagining a mouse jumping out of it !!!! I'm shuddering just thinking about it ! oO

Have the 4 slice version & it is tremendous. Makes nice brown toast in 2 mins or less!!!

Bought one for £30 from Argos, worked for a year or so, then element burned out in a frightening blue flash!
I fixed it with a soldering iron and five minutes, only for it to go again a few months later.
Phoned Dualit and they offered me £25 discount off a replacement which they'd sell for £80.
Tried explaining the maths of why that didn't please me and she couldn't have said 'don't care' in so many different ways.
Bought a Bosch from B&Q for £25ish and loving it ever since.

Same happened to my Kenwood toaster and another toaster I had, what happens is when you say toast a fruit loaf a bit of the fruit gets caught between the element and the casing and as the fruit acts as an earth when you switch the toaster on "bang" and you get a blue flash.
