Dualit has produced its line of toasters since 1946. Engineer Max Gort-Barten created the original toaster from his workshop in London. His goal was to make a toaster with features different than the toasters on the market, motivating Barten to install a time switch in his first model. Dualit, a England-based small appliance company, offers a line of two- and four-slot toaster. All models have a stainless steel finish, with varying colours available to complement your individual style. The company started by producing its first toaster, and since has produced several more models with a variety of features.
