Dualit 46205

EXTRA WIDE SLOTS FOR PERFECT TOASTING

One of the frustrations that people often have with toasters is that the slots are often too narrow, allowing only narrow bread slices to fit in perfectly. Many of us are familiar with the unpleasant memories of having to remove thick bread slices that got stuck in a slot, and burning a finger in the process. Thankfully, there is a toaster out there that confines this unpleasant memory to the past, and it is the Dualit 46205 4 Slot Lite Toaster. This Dualit Lite Toaster includes extra thick slots that help ensure that almost any type of bread at any thickness can be evenly toasted without fears of the slices getting stuck.

The extra wide slots provide the ability to toast more than just standard slices of bread, and are actually perfect for bagels. In addition, many of the other standard toasting features are here, including controls that allow for 8 different levels of toasting, functions for defrosting and toasting in the same process, and a clever Look and Lift function that allows for checking the toasting progress without interruption. About the only thing missing from this model is a reheating function, but this is a minor complaint in comparison to everything else that if offers. Anyone who likes toasting bagels or other thick types of bread will easily fall in love with this Dualit 4 slice toaster.

Dualit 26523

Compact yet Powerful

This compact Dualit Architect toaster is capable of making up to 60 toasts per hour thanks to its powerful heating elements. With this appliance, you won't have to wait too long until your breakfast is ready. Like other Dualit models, it has a toasting lever allowing you to check if bread slices are just as brown as you like them. It also features a defrost function so you can make delicious toasts right out from the freezer. 36 mm-wide slots make it easy to warm thicker slices of bread as well as bagels, and buns (the unit has a special setting for toasting the latter two just on the inside).

Delicious breakfast is not the only thing that affects our mood, ergonomics and design of the appliances we use are also important. Like other brand's models, this toaster has an intuitive operation, user-friendly design, and stylish appearance. It has even more: a special feature of the Architect Dualit models is that you can design and redesign your kitchen by changing the unit's side panels choosing the colour that matches your interior the best.

Toasts are perfect for breakfast or snacks, but how about more substantial meals? If you are looking for a handy appliance for cooking delicious succulent chicken and other poultry at home, we recommend you to buy a rotisserie oven.
