2015 is an exciting year for Dualit as it marks 70 years since
the company was founded in 1945. Over the years we are proud to
have kept product innovation at the forefront of what we do,
providing safe, high quality products that make life in both
professional and domestic kitchens, much easier.
In celebration of this landmark we have launched an exciting
competition to win an array of Dualit prizes, as well as
fascinating facts and stories from our heritage.
In celebration of #Dualit70 we
launched a worldwide search to find the oldest working Dualit
toaster. We received entries from all over the world, often
accompanied with the story behind where the toaster came from and
how it's been used.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to send in photos and
tell us about their toasters. We hope to publish some of the
fascinating stories and photos on our website very soon.
The winning toaster was made in the Dualit factory in London,
just off the Old Kent Road in 1973! Hand built by Dualit's Factory
Foreman at the time, the 4 slot toaster with cream end panels was
sold to a customer from Southampton on the south coast of England,
who bought it to use in her busy bed and breakfast to make toast
for the guests.
The toaster worked steadily for the next 16 years, then it was
passed down to the owners' son in 1989. Then it was used in his
home, where his teenage son, Andrew Ruddick used it regularly. Mr
Ruddick inherited the toaster as his own in 1993 and these days it
can be found making toast for himself, his wife Zoe and their four
children at their home in Hampshire everyday.
That makes the winning toaster 42 years old!
To commemorate 70 years of product innovation, we have designed
an exclusive, limited edition "Anniversary Toaster".
Dualit's in-house design and engineering team have selected key
design features from toasters from the 1940's to today to create
the 2 slot Anniversary Toaster.
You'll probably know a little about Dualit, such as we are a
family run business and that we know quite a lot about toast! But
there is probably more that you don't know. Our team at Dualit have
put our heads together to come up with 70 facts about our company,
some of which may be surprising!
We have been digging through our archives to find what we think
are the most interesting stories from Dualit's history.
Here are a couple of our favourites to start off....
