Dualit retro style Vario 20245 toaster is a model, first designed in 1947 and hand-built in England, as identified by the individual assembler's mark on the base plate. This 2-slice toaster with original features, such as the manually operated ejector level, which means that rather than 'popping' the toast up, it keeps the bread warm until you eject it by pressing a lever. It is versatile with extra-wide slots (28 mm) that will accommodate larger items, e.g.: thick slices or bagels. All Vario toasters also fit the optional sandwich cage for toasted sandwiches and warming rack for heating buns and croissants.

Style IconThis is a very stylish toaster, very expensive but said to be the best. I have had my eye on one for a long time and eventually thought I would treat myself. As well as being very sturdy, it is very easy to use once you get the hand of the traditional timer knob.
I also got a pair of sandwich cages, and it really does make an excellent toasted sandwich.
The crumb tray is huge and the simple design makes the whole thing very easy to keep clean.

A great looking toasterThis is a great looking toaster Dualits are made in the UK and the build quailty is very high.
If you've bought other toasters that only last a year of two then buy this it will last a long time and it's easy to replace the elements.
Turn the knob on the front to one slice or two (saves power if you only want one slice) and select how long you want it toasted for.This is trial and error at first but produces excellent results.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Legislation
From 1st July 2007, all retailers of electrical goods must comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation.
This is a scheme to prevent all such waste being disposed of in general landfill sites and to promote recycling of components and materials. The legislation aims to minimise the impact of electrical and electronic equipment on the environment by creating products with recycling in mind and encouraging reuse, recycling, and recovery of WEEE.
How do I know what product is "WEEE"? The definition of a WEEE product is one whose primary function is dependent on electrical currents to carry out the main function, e.g. a toaster. However, some product, such as a child’s soft toy with an electric circuit, is not classed as WEEE as its primary function is a toy. For further details on product definitions, please click here.
You may also take the item(s) to your local authority Civic Amenity Site if this is more convenient.
