Dualit Architect 2-Slice Toaster, Black

Product information

Arriving with a 2-year guarantee that's exclusive to John Lewis, the 2-slice Dualit Architect toaster not only boasts a contemporary industrial-inspired look with clean, smooth curves but also benefits from intuitive and reliable functionality.

Fed up with burnt toast? Thanks to the nifty 'peek and pop' feature with this toaster, you can raise your slice for inspection without interrupting the toasting process. Thanks to its excellent design and build quality, this toaster’s elements work hard enough to keep up in a commercial kitchen, so you know it will always work hard at breakfast time to provide enough toast for everybody.

The 36mm extra wide slots allow you to accommodate bread of various thicknesses, and in conjunction with a bagel and bun feature you’ll enjoy perfect results - toasted one side while warmed on the other.

If you’ve just discovered that emergency loaf of bread in the freezer you’ll appreciate the defrost option and with a cancel button onboard you shouldn’t be hearing the sound of your smoke detector too often.

The attractive canvas white main body and stainless steel panels are easy to clean ensuring the toaster will always look in great condition. The concealed crumb tray will also prevent any debris from spilling out onto your worktop.

Different coloured panels can be attached onto the sides of this toaster, so you can mix and match with your kitchen decor.

Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stylish Appliance This toaster looks superb in my kitchen, I also purchased the matching kettle. So easy to clean, can easily remove any loose crumbs which get caught inside. Lovely product! Would definatly recommend. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Neat and smart We deliberated over the four and two slice toasters but went for the more compact version. The black and chrome look modern but don't look out of place in our traditional kitchen. As always JL staff were extremely helpful 06 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Toaster This is a well built toaster that works well. The ability to look at toast without ending the toasting cycle is particularly useful. Looks good as well! 03 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Looks good but... Had a problem with the first one of these I purchased - kept burning toast even on less than the lowest setting. Have a replacement which seems a bit better but still only able to use it on a low setting. Can be very uneven on occasions as well. 14 October 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beautiful, yet almost totally useless This is a gorgeous piece of kit with silk smooth controls and a look to match the price. The slots are just long enough to accommodate large sliced bread so this was cruising to a 5* until... ... I tried to use it: the central elements heat a lot faster than the outside one, resulting in toast burnt on one side every time. It is even mentioned in the instructions! A call to customer service confirmed this: there is heat leakage between the compartments when toasting a single slice. Tried again with two slices: much better; but useless with a single slice. Finally, Dualit is another manufacturer charging £££ yet skimping 10p on cord length. Bad form. 19 September 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by well made Good points, looks good, toasts your bread quickly & I do like the feature that you can lift the bread to check the browning, but my machine toasts unevenly & sometimes burns one side & for this sort of money it should work. 18 August 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Perhaps third time lucky The toaster is aesthetically pleasing and having had a Dualit toaster previously for many years had high hopes. The first purchase was returned as it burnt and cooked the bread unevenly. Our second one (which I think I will have to return) pops up within seconds but only occasionally, so irritating if you leave the room and return to find it uncooked, then it burns the bread if you don't keep an eye on it. For some strange reason it cooks bagels really well; this seems to be the only function that works properly. I am fed up with the kitchen smelling of burnt toast. Having read other reviews, is there perhaps a bad batch and we have been unlucky twice. 05 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by A toaster that doesn't fit bread!! Unbelievable! I cannot understand why this hasn't been highlighted already. The slots didn't allow standard Warburton's sliced bread in landscape and it didn't toast the full slice in portrait. What are Dualit doing?! Purely form over function. 05 August 2015
