“unsafe”

Written on: 14/12/2013

Others have highlighted the problem with the timer. My smoke alarm was set off by burning toast because the timer stuck - I'm sure there will be countless health & safety angels who will remind me never to leave a toaster unattended, but that kinda defeats the object of buying a very expensive product in the first place. This product could cost lives, avoid… Read Full Review

“I agree with other reviewers”

Written on: 18/11/2013 by Stewpot44 (1 review written)

We bought our first one from John Lewis (a retirement treat)in 2007. It came with a 5 year guarantee and after 4 years the timer failed (as so many others have reported). To be fair, John Lewis got a replacement for us and not a repair. Dualit should get a grip of this as it is such a dangerous isuue. On another issue, the toaster won't accept a full slice of Hovis white snd we have to turn the bread upside down to finish it off. I wrote to Dualit to ask for their comments and got a very… Read Full Review

Since writing this review I have contacted Hovis. They very helpfully that their bread slices have been the same size for more than 10 years. I got back to Dualit and, would you believe it, their current model was changed around the same time. I know who I won't be buying from ever again

“Terrible Toaster”

Written on: 03/11/2013 by hyderone (1 review written)

Never worked properly from new, first the timer stuck and burnt the toast. When I had freed that up I discovered that it would burn the toast one side and underdo it the other in three out the four slots! Tried to contact the company but received no joy or reply. Amex supplied me with the toaster through their reward scheme otherwise I would have been appalled to have paid £179 for a toaster that doesn't toast… Read Full Review

“Dualit causes housefire”

Written on: 14/09/2013

Our Dualit toaster set fire to our house recently when the timer got stuck on (we thought the timer had stopped/returned to '0', as it was silent and not clicking), so we left the house for work. On returning, the house was filled with smoke, our two dogs distressed and the kitchen unit very burnt and black. Six fire crews came out and the unit had to be hacked out to remove the smouldering shelf. The kitchen still smells of smoke. On doing some research on Google we discovered to our shock… Read Full Review

For people who live with many people like me, this toaster is a godsend. It has 4 slots, so I don't need to keep waiting for it to be my turn. The toast is even, and it does toast more quickly than others. The slots are pretty wide and I can even place large slices inside… Read Full Review

“Fire in the house!!”

Written on: 17/02/2013

Looks nice. Makes nice toast if you have your wits about you first thing in the morning. If you unplug it after use (as Dualit recommend to avoid the fire hazard), you will find that when you do want to use it you have to remember to plug it back in. Sounds obvious, but the timer switch makes a loud clicking noise which gives you the impression it's making your toast, when in fact it is simply clicking loudly round and the toaster isn't switched on. This is a bit annoying but the problem is… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/02/2013

I bought this toaster because I loved the look of it in my kitchen, and I felt that Dualit was a good brand so this toaster must be very well made and it will last a very long time. Very disappointing!! The timer switch has stopped working and now I have a fire hazard in my kitchen! I could go to many lengths to try and fix the switch, but for the money that I paid for this toaster, I should not have to. I really thought that I was purchasing a toaster that I would be using for many, many years. Well, not going to happen. Too bad, I really like the way it looks in my kitchen. I wonder how it would look as a door stop?

Never easy to get it right. Whatever toaster you buy. Even kept at the same setting, the second insert of toast always seems to come out more on the burnt side.

“Badly designed.”

Written on: 16/08/2012 by shiraz33 (1 review written)

Had this toaster five years and on its third mechanical timer. This time it nearly set fire to the kitchen. There is no safety theromstat and when the timer jams or spring becomes weak and the dial gets a build up of kitchen muck between this and the case you can be in big trouble. The get out clause for Dualit is that it is "an attended appliance" ........life's to short to watch a toaster. Expensive and not well made… Read Full Review

“The marmite of toasters”

Written on: 20/07/2012 by johnwithard (7 reviews written)

When our last toaster packed in I thought I'd go to town and spend a few quid. I'd always liked the Dualit after seeing it in the background of every great house design show. The toaster itself is unlike most. There's no "pop-up" and no simple setting on a dial. The "pop-up" functionality is replaced with a lever and the dial is a timer. Now, I love the simplicity of it, but not everyone does. 50% of the house are with me, and 50% are with my wife (who hates it). I can understand why. She… Read Full Review

“Almost burnt my kitchen down!!!!!”

Written on: 13/06/2012

This toaster looks great but it has a major safely issue. Last week I used the toaster then went to work. However the timer which switches the toaster off got stuck, and the toaster was left on all day. I returned home from work to find my kitchen cupboards completely burnt, with the covers peeling off, all the food in the cupboards above had melted and glasses had cracked. I am just so lucky that they did not catch fire and burn my house down. I phoned Dualit customer services, and I was… Read Full Review

Hi I read up on how great these toasters are and really wanted one. Well yes it looks great, feels well made & it toasts bread. I read the horror stories of how dangerous these toasters are but hoped that mine would be ok. Anyway this morning I stuck on some toast and got interrupted by a phone call so left the kitchen. During the call the kids came screaming out into the hall saying there was a fire, I ran into the kitchen which was black with smoke and pulled the toaster plug out, grabbed… Read Full Review

“Nice looker shame about the switch.”

Written on: 07/01/2012 by philnel (1 review written)

This could be a great little toaster (mines the 4 slice version)but the switch has a design fault. The mechanical part of it is like a clock.Take the switch out and wind it up, you will be able to stop it by placing your finger on the ends of the wheels that turn. The ends of the spindles just poke through the casing a tiny amount, you will also see the flywheel stop turning when you do this.I think these wheels should run in a jewel like a watch instead of the metal casing which will wear or… Read Full Review

Agree with this comment. I'm now on my 4th replacement timer for this toaster bought in 2004. Dualit do not acknowledge this is a problem but it has caused my fire alarm system to go off at least 6 times filling kitchen with smoke in normal domestic use.

Written on: 24/01/2011

I found this to be a pretty mediocre toaster but very pretty, however after about 18 months of quite light use the timer started to stick and is actually dangerous as the toast sits and burns in the toaster until the room fills with smoke and the smoke alarm goes off. Obviously I now realise I can't leave it unattended but it is easy to get distracted. I have a 2 slice toaster, I notice someone with a 4 slice toaster had the same problem. It is a beautiful but impractical item… Read Full Review

This Dualit 4 slice toaster is the best I have had after trying several and different aspects bugging me of each one. It's sturdy, cooks evenly, has a reassuring click when toast is cooked. It comes with a sandwich clamp which enables you to put a sandwich in and toast it, even melting cheese. You can select to use one, two or four slices so it is also energy efficient. Was pleased too to see the variety of colours it came in. It looks very stylish which is handy when it is on the side all the… Read Full Review

Absolute over priced junk. Toasts unevenly, but then again a lot of other toasters do the same. After a couple of years domestic use, the timer stuck and could have caused a serious fire, if it was not for my smoke detector.
