Max Gort-Barten, the man behind Dualit, always knew he wanted to create and manufacture his own inventions. His first successful product was a patented commercial toaster, from which today’s Dualit Classic toaster range has developed.
Dualit is a company with a clear set of values. These include its focus on high quality, well-engineered products, a hard-won reputation amongst professional chefs, and a loyal and family-orientated workforce. From Max to his son Leslie and grandson Alex, Dualit continues to grow, inspired by the same spirit of invention, entrepreneurship and gut instinct.
From the first flip-sided toaster in 1946 through the steady growth of a commercial product range in the 1950s and 60s to its explosion onto the consumer market in the late 70s, Dualit has remained true to Max Gort-Barten’s original vision.
At Dualit we are very proud of the awards that we have won over the years. Our product awards prove that we are creating well-designed, well-engineered products that work and are truly ‘best in class’. We also win awards for innovation, a hallmark of our success.
