Pros:Looks, if you're into diner chic

Cons:FLAKEY ELECTRONICS!!!! Noise level uneven toasting

My wife and I bought TWO Dualit toasters (one for my office) because they looked cool and were, we thought, supposed to be well made. Terrible mistake! Junk! The first toaster's electronics went nutty - it rarely stayed on - it would work for a few seconds and then quit. Even when we set it to the darkest setting it never toasted well - got the bread warm but it wasn't toast. So we sent it back. Faulty electronics. Under warranty. Cool. Then we got a new one which worked up until the warranty ran out and now this one doesn't work at all! Just never goes on!

WHich brings me to toaster #2: Good news? It works. Bad news, it is SO LOUD as it toasts that the only way you know your toast is done is when silence returns to the room. And then your toast still isn't evenly brown. Cold spots abound. Uneven. Dark at the top, light at the bottom.

I should have know that the Brits can't build anything electrical to save their lives. Can you say, "Pre-Ford Jaguar?" Avoid like the plague. Buy something cheaper.
