My name is Scott and I have a $300 toaster

For the most part, I do not spend extravagantly. I drive sensible cars (and drive them to death), most of my wardrobe comes from Target and K & G, and I bought a house for about a forth of the amount the mortgage company wanted to loan us. I do, however, own the world's most expensive toaster.

You see, over our first ten years of marriage we went through at least a toaster each year. Sometimes the heating element would go out. Other times it was something else. About four years ago I set out to find the world's best toaster. That is when I discovered the Dualit. This product of the UK is built to last. In the US it is distributed exclusively through Williams-Sonoma. We had an eye on the Dualit for several months.

What pushed us over the edge is when they came out with one that was the exact color the walls in our recently remodeled kitchen. We made the purchase and have never looked back. It has been four years and we've had perfect toast everytime we wanted it. The Dualit gets a lot of use and works as well today as it did the first day we bought it. This morning, in fact, it was raisin toast for Lisa, cinnamon toast for Henry, and toast with strawberry jam for me.
