You'll Never Need Another Toaster
The Dualit 4-slice toaster is quite simply the gold standard for toasters. There isn't a better toaster on the market. This model comes in a variety of colors including charcoal, mint green, and puple, but if your kitchen is more traditional the chrome toaster is very stylish with a fun retro feel.
This toaster is assembled by hand in England. Apparently the English take their toast very seriously as this is a well crafted piece of kitchen equipment. In a society where everything seems to be disposable these days it's refreshing to find a kitchen appliance that will not end up in the landfill in six months. For anyone who's trying to buy less and choose higher quality products this is a wise and frugal toaster for the long run.
The Dualit 4-slice toaster is very simple to operate. The controls are all manual, so you use a lever to lower the bread into the 28mm wide slot and then set the timer to toast your bread for as long as 4 minutes. You toast will not spring up out of the appliance when it's finished and get cold before you have a chance to butter it, instead you use the same lever to raise your toast out of the slot.
This toaster has a patented Pro-heat system that will brown your toast very evenly. The wide slots accommodate any kind of bread or bagel, and Dualit sells a sandwich cage for this model. That sandwich cage makes the best ever ham and cheese sandwiches, and it cleans up easily by hand or in the dishwasher. Speaking of cleaning, there’s an easily detachable crumb tray on the bottom of the Dualit toaster. It actually does contain the mess, and it’s easy to pop off when you’re ready to wash it.
This Dualit toaster is a work horse. It was originally made for catering and industrial uses, and Dualit promises that their toaster can make 130 slices of toast per hour. That’s fantastic news if you’re making toast for a crowd, but if you’re like me and just need a couple of slices in the morning, you can flip a switch and only 2 slots will heat up at a time.
This really is a hard-working and beautiful appliance that will look great on you kitchen counter. Think of this toaster the next time you're buying a wedding gift for someone. The lucky couple will enjoy perfect toast for years to come.
