Celebrating 70 years, Dualit searching across the globe for its oldest toaster

As part of its 70th anniversary celebrations, British small appliance manufacturer Dualit has launched an international competition to find its oldest working toaster.

According to the company, it regularly hears from customers who have had their Dualit toaster for years, some of which have been passed down generations.

The customer who can prove they own the company’s oldest toaster will win a Dualit Classic Kettle, Hand Mixer, Hand Blender Set, Blender, Coffee Machine, Milk Frother, a selection of coffee and tea capsules, as well as a limited edition 70th Anniversary, two-slot Classic Toaster, which will be just one of 70.
