TOASTING SINCE 1945
CONTENTS
For over sixty eight years, Dualit toasters have reflected an attitude that’s fundamentally
British. They are a symbol of the fact that it’s the simple things in life that are the most
rewarding and the most important.

Dualit toasters can turn out hundreds of crisp,
golden slices per hour. They are gleaming, sturdy
and tough as old boots. And as much a part of
British life as toast itself.

It should come as no surprise that the man who
invented the Dualit toaster was an engineer. In
1946, Max Gort-Barten produced the original
Dualit toaster from his workshop just off
London’s Old Kent Road.
Warming Rack
Combining strength, versatility and ingenuity it
was a toaster that set new standards, soon
followed by a commercial toaster, incorporating
a time switch among its many (entirely) original
features.
Manually operated and designed for heavy-duty use, each Dualit toaster is a blend of the
simple and highly sophisticated. Each toaster is assembled by hand, much as it always was.
The assembler’s individual number will be found on the base plate.
In an age in which so much becomes obsolete overnight, the Dualit toaster is built without
compromise. It remains one of the few objects to survive the passing of the years with
grace and style.

Your Dualit toaster has patented proheat
elements. These elements need to be
conditioned before toasting for the very first
time. Then continue to toast as per the
instructions.
Set the selector switch so ALL the slots
are active, with NO bread in the slots, turn
the timer all the way round and let it run
back to the off position.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must
be replaced by the manufacturer, its
service agent or similarly qualified
persons in order to avoid a hazard.
WARNING: This appliance must be
earthed.
Some smoke may vent from the slots,
THIS IS NOT A FAULT and is perfectly
safe. There may be a slight popping crinkling
sound, this is due to heat expansion of the
elements and is perfectly normal.

TOASTING TIpS
here are a few tips to help get the best out of your toaster.
ThE SANDWICh CAGE
•
FULLy LOAD ALL HEATED UP SLOTS. If a slot is heated but no bread is
inserted, the bread in the adjacent slot will toast unevenly.
Convert your toaster into a toasted sandwich maker with
this quick and easy to use accessory.
•
ALwAyS LOAD yOUR SLOTS STARTINg FROm THE LEFT.
•
DIFFERENT bREADS wILL TOAST AT DIFFERENT RATES, wholemeal
bread takes longer than white bread, fresh bread will take longer than day old bread.
Remember to adjust your timer to allow for your particular type of bread.
•
After the first round of toast, the elements and toaster body will be at full operating
temperature, subsequent rounds will take less time to toast.
•
use the bagel setting to toast burger buns, bagels, muffins or tea cakes, this setting
toasts one side whilst gently warming the other.
ThE WARMING RACK
•
The thickest slice of bread that will fit in your toaster is 28mm thick. Forcing bread
which is too thick or too long into the slots will be difficult to eject once toasted.
The ‘warming rack’ is a universal accessory for all Dualit
NewGen Toasters.
•
You may find it easier to use a ‘sandwich cage’ to toast smaller items. Inserting,
checking and removing will all be easier (sold separately).
•
When hand cutting a fresh loaf, cut the slices as evenly as possible. uneven slices will
toast unevenly.
•
Keep elements free from breadcrumbs and broken pieces of bread. If left these may
burn out the elements. With the toaster unplugged use a soft brush to clean inside
your toaster, do not use a knife!
using a cage also offers greater toasting control, for
toasting smaller items such as crumpets, scones, teacakes
or muffins.
perfect for warming or lightly toasting any bread product
that will not fit inside the slots. Such as croissants, scones,
pastries or tortillas.
use for a maximum of 3 minutes and then allow to cool
between each use.

•
To reheat recently made toast set timer to ‘defrost’ symbol.
•
Cancel toasting manually at any time by rotating the timer back to ‘O’.
This will not damage your timer.

set the ‘timer’ to the ‘circle’ indicator, the extra time is
because the metal body will absorb some heat. After the

circle indicator then insert your bread
into the active slots.

Ensure size and type of bread being
toasted is the same.
