We use a Zip toaster bought from Briscoes for about $16. Does much better toast that the $$$ Delonghi one my mum has at her place.

So when you're talking Dualit toaster you're talking about this: http://www.dualit.co.nz/product/dualit-newgen-4-slice-toaster ?

 

 

 

 

Yup - that is the one I am after and the updated version of the one that has served my friends well for so very many years

you realise that the same thing happens when you bake bread/cake, grill meat, roast potatoes, make steak, fire up bbq, etc .... 

 

 

 

 

...and from general interaction from the world around you, breathing, living, existing etc...

I've had the Magimix see through toaster for 5 years. Best purchase ever! Every other toaster is old tech.

Ages ago, before moving here, I had a toaster (Philips, I think) that had an IR sensor in that was supposed to 'read' the brown-ness of the toast surface so that if you set it to, say, level 4 and then used a different or frozen bread, it would alter the timing so that you still got the same level of toasting. Never seen one since.

Probably because it was a piece of crap. What is such a huge problem about just monitoring the toast, and putting it back in if it isn't done? There is an awful lot of gimmickry for its own sake in today's world. Alexa, make some toast. Dark on one side, not on the other. Don't forget the butter.

 

Sheesh!

I like Dualit because you can easily just lift the toast and look!

 

As far as the one I mentioned above goes, I think it worked well enough in general but I cannot recall for sure whether it performed better than an average toaster in terms of what it was trying to do differently.

I also like the conveyor belt toasters they have in some hotels. We had them in the dining room at one school I was at and (as teens we ate a lot of toast..!) it was great - you could catch 8 slices and then pile butter on top, let it melt, lift the top slice and drain the melting butter onto the next one and so on. Brilliant!

The ultimate toaster?

 

The Mitsubishi TO-ST1-T single slice, available in Japan.
