Positives

As with the 4-slice the Dualit Classic 2-Slice Toaster has an all metal construction with replaceable parts so they can be replaced individually instead of having to buy a new toaster. The Dualit 2-slice toaster has two simple knobs. There is an upper dial for the number and/or type of bread that’s being toasted and a lower dial to decide the time settings. Between the two knobs is an indicator light (LED) which shows if the heating elements are on or off. It glows when the heating is turned on and of course has now glow when heating is not in use. Compared to the 4-slice it toasts food more evenly and efficiently. It actually toasts the grains so if you are using nice bread, it really brings out the very best flavor and aroma in your bread. It doesn’t dry out the toast as much as other toasters so as a result it takes longer to toast the bread.

Complaints

The fact that you need to pre-heat the toaster in order to make it work should’ve been an unnecessary thing to do. Its too easy to burn your toast, leave it in a few seconds longer and that could be the difference between acceptable toasting and incineration. If you really want things toasted uniformly then you really should rotate your toast 180 degrees half way through since the side facing inward gets toasted much faster than those facing outward. It’s unfortunate that even some of the best toasters need to have roundabout methods to get the best toasting. However even without turning your toast around the toasting is still fine. Toasting time is slower then some customers wanted who were disappointed the 2-slice wasn’t a fast toasting toaster.

Summary

Thanks to the Dualit Classic 2-Slice Toaster’s proheating elements it can toast well with consistency and longevity. Having replaceable parts is another plus so if a part breaks down you can replace that individual part instead of needing to replace the 2-slice.The metal is strong, has a nice sleek stainless steel feel and looks great in the kitchen. Out of all the Dualits I found this to be the most consistent in terms of even toasting which should be expected given its price point. This is a very solid toaster that won’t disappoint you. For its price point its on the expensive side but if you’ve been having problems with other toasters then you should look into this one as most common toaster problems eliminated with this one
