Dualit is hotting things up in the kitchen with its ‘affordable’ Dualit Lite range, designed by Seymour Powell in pressed and polished stainless steel. The idea behind the design for the range of two- and four-slot toasters is to ‘capture the essence of the classic Dualit brand, without slavishly emulating it’, according to Seymour Powell director Dick Powell. He says the designs are ‘more friendly and less austere’ than the traditional models, relying on their functionality rather than making a ‘lifestyle statement’. The toaster retails at £39.99 and other products in the range are expected to follow.
