4 Slice Toaster Trackworld
hate so say it, but as a serial toaster wrecker, Ive not managed to make the Dualit flinch yet.
It takes abuse (I want my toast NOW, no actually stay in for a bit more, no NOW! out, wait back in for a smidge, THERE! PERFECT!)
Easy to keep looking tidy too. ANd most importantly spare parts are available for repairs. I HATE throwing out cheap whitegoods because parts are not serviceable.Posted 4 years agoTracker1972Member
Our Dualit was worth the money, then again it was a gift 🙂 Seems utterly simple and totally bombproof so am going to assume some longevity. Spares available if anything did go but you could buy a cheap toaster for the price of a new element so that isn’t that much of a bargain. If I had the money to buy one, now I have had one, I would, because I like them.
p.s. only toasting the inside face of cut bagels was a revelation as well, the toaster educated me on that one.Posted 4 years agogears_suckMember
In my extensive toaster experience and consequent frustration. I can categorically state that no domestic toaster is worth a damn. You may beg to differ I’m sure, but in that instance I can state that your tastes and requirements are not as exacting as mine.Posted 4 years ago
Having failed miserably to obtain one which will do the job consistently for less than stupid money, I recommend the grill. You just can’t beat the even crispyness that an overhead element can provide.
I let the toast cool slightly and apply lashings of slightly salted butter.
There are cheap and expensive Dualits (or at least there used to be). The cheap ones are just branded/skinned but are essentially cheap and unfixable unlike their more expensive cousins so if you want one do your home work. ISTR the Classic range are the bombproof repairable ones.Posted 4 years agowoodsmanMember
Nope – Breville Cafe Series! Looked at Dualit and they’re quite shallow, can’t get a decent big loaf slice in there and toast it all was my opinion. The Breville was recommended from someone on here when I ran a similar thread some years back. Nice and heavy duty/cool thing imo! Google it…..Posted 4 years agoCougarSubscriber

I’ve never understood why 90% of toasters can’t take the single most popular ‘toastie’ bread in the country. (Or, I suppose, why Warburton’s can’t make their toastie loaf fit bloody toasters.) How hard is it to make a toaster with slots half an inch longer?Posted 4 years agocranberryMember
Another Dualit owner here, the things I like about it:
It toasts bread
It is made by an English company ( founded by an immigrant )
…Employing people in England
It seems bullet proof
ProHeat elements will fit Dualit toasters made in the last 50 years* and are easily replaced if one does fail
They cost a bit more than they should, but they are the Defender of toasters.Posted 4 years agowobbliscottMember
I’ve got a Prestige one. Does the biz and I’ve had it since 2004. One end does get slightly more toasted than the other, but it’s consistent across the 4 slots and I like it as I put the dome end of the bread to that end of the slot so that is slightly more toasted than the rest, which is nice to have medium toasted breaded at one end working your way upto well toasted at the other.
I looked at a Dualit but couldn’t bring myself to spend so much on a toaster that doesn’t pop up on its own. That has to be the biggest leap forward in toaster technology. You wouldn’t spend a premium on a car that you had to hand crank to start no matter how good a car it was when started would you? However Cranberry makes a strong case for them!Posted 4 years ago
