I know your pain. I was on a toaster quest a couple of years ago and wrote about it here: http://www.flummel.com/ee/index.php/weblog/toaster_universe/

I don't yet own the Dualit, but I still lust for it. Good luck.


The other (admittedly, much less important) reason I won't buy the Dualit is that I fear I'd be disappointed -- then where would I be? At least this way I can imagine that toasting perfection exists in our world.


Why not a toaster oven which does both bread and bagels? Plus for those that don't mind a toasted cheese sandwich as opposed to the grilled cheese in the frying pan,(I prefer mine not so squished) this works for that---AND heats up frozen leftover pizza the best way, my kids say. We've been very happy with our Black and Decker.


I was at Costco yesterday, and they had a pretty fabulous looking Krups toaster for only $24.95, if memory serves, and I was pondering whether the shipping would still make it a deal. Costco usually has the same stuff in most of its stores - at least regionally if not nationally. Do you belong? $25 is not bad - even if it ends up disappointing. I use a toaster oven, too. Works for us.


I am counting the days until I can give the awful toaster oven the boot. I still need it for chicken nuggets and cheese "dreams." Personally I would go for the Dualit. Think of it this way: it's 2 years of Netflix (or so) and at the end of that time, you still own it and it probably still works. FYI - I had NO idea that the "bagel" button is supposed to toast the cut side only. I love it when I learn something new.


I hate my Cuisinart, and I am one my second one. My friends with the Dualit don't rave about it. I am considering a move back to the toaster over, but am too cheap to buy one until the current toaster is dead.


Du-aaaaa-liiiiiit. Du-aaaaaa-liiiiit.
It's calling you!

We've had ours for over ten years now - 10 problem-free years. It *is* worth it.

Stop spending your money (and wasting your time) on sub-standard toasters. You know you want one...


Personally, I'm ready to get a toaster oven. My kids really want to do more cooking and it would help in that arena. However, I found this review for the Hamilton Beach that you might want to check out. The price is certainly right. http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/ref=br_1_10/602-8679007-0163000?%5Fencoding=UTF8&frombrowse=1&asin=B00065XWEU
