Dualit’s new Domus range promises “the perfect tea and toast”
Dualit has teamed up with design company Seymourpowell to produce its latest kettle and toaster range.
‘Domus’, the label given to the new range, features ergonomically designed appliances in a choice of black or porcelain coloured finishes.
The toasters, available in 2- or 4-slice models, are produced in chrome-plated steel and are controlled using soft-touch LED illuminated buttons. Both models have high output wattages – 2100-2250W for the 4-slice and 1000-1200W for the 2-slice version. Dualit’s Perfect Toast Technology provides quick and even browning and full coverage of the bread, while its patented Peek & Pop function allows users to lift the bread with the ejector lever while toasting and drop it down again without interrupting the toasting cycle, thereby giving greater browning control.
The 1.5-litre kettle has a stainless steel body and a concentric circular design with an ergonomic silicone handle. It features Dualit’s patented Sure Pour, providing a simple lift and pour that requires a low pouring angle, thus putting less pressure on users’ wrists and reducing the amount of water wasted through dripping.
The appliance is BPA-free and uses a fast-boiling 3kW mechanism which is concealed in the base in order to reduce the level of limescale. A boil-dry safety feature switches the kettle off when empty, and dual measuring window-lettering shows the water level. One side features a cup level indicator and the other a litre measurement.
Dualit Director Alex Gort-Barten commented: “Having enjoyed a longlasting relationship with Seymourpowell over the years, it was a natural choice for us to task them with bringing the Domus collection to life with a new and innovative style. We wanted the Domus to feel and look easy to use whilst being aesthetically attractive. Seymourpowell have captured our vison perfectly, creating an ergonomic toaster and kettle which are an integral part of many a household in the UK.”
