Expert review

Dualit's Architect 26526 toaster is a departure from its 1950s-style models in terms of aesthetics, with more modernist leanings. Its side panels are also interchangeable, with additional panels sold separately in a range of colours, meaning that you can change your toaster to match the shade of your kitchen if you repaint it. But how did this toaster fare in our lab tests?
