Our Ethos

No frills. No gimmicks. No compromise. It must be Dualit.

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.


70 years’ on, and as inventive and charismatic as ever.

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.


Products that perform win awards.

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.
