Dualit adds peek function to Lite toasterFunction means you can check on toast

14 August 2009

A 'Peek and pop’ function to allow you to check on your toast as it browns has been added to Dualit's iconic two and four slice Lite toasters

They also come with bagel toasting functions and you can order a sandwich cage as an optional extra. 

Available in either cream or black, they are being sold through John Lewis at around £59 for the two slice model and £79 for the four slice model. 

The company’s Vario model already has this function, but is considerably more expensive at £135.

Kenwood’s £27 Turin TTM400 also gives you the chance to see how your toast is doing, which it calls ‘peek and view’. Its £44 Virtu TTM312 did rather better in our tests.

But both lag behind the pre-peek and pop Dualit Lite, which narrowly missed Best Buy status. Which? has tested 93 toasters currently on the market, including six Best Buys costing £22 or less.
