Dualit NewGen Classic Toaster
Price: $319.95 for 4-slot toaster; $239.95 for 2-slot toaster
Dualit toasters may look playful, but they command some serious cash. These insulated steel units, which come in a range of colors, are assembled by hand in England and are designed in a way that the company says “increases toasting efficiency and element longevity”. The toaster boasts extra-wide slots for sandwiches, which will stand vertically and keep their shape when used with a sandwich cage (sold separately for $19.99).
Can be purchased at Sur La Table.
