The company Dualit has been manufacturing high quality designer kitchen appliances in England since 1945. Max Fort-Barten, who was born in 1914 in Germany, was the founder of the creative business.
Max Fort-Barten was in England when World War II broke out. After five years in the army, he bought a factory in Camberwell, intending to produce one of his many inventions there. He had many ideas including the electronic fire Dual-Light, from which he later derived the name of his company Dualit. But he only successfully aroused the interest of the people with just one product. It was the toaster from 1946.
Six years later, in 1952, Max Fort-Barten created a new Dualit toaster, which is said to have caused great excitement. It was the first toaster with 6 slots, a mechanical timer and a manual eject lever to keep the toast warm until he came to the table. All the residents of Picton Street and his entire family were involved in the production of the toaster.
In 1954, the government compulsorily bought Max Fort-Bartens factory so he could build a new Dualit production facility on the Old Kent Road with the proceeds. The growth of the company seemed to know no end.
The design and construction of the toaster gradually emerged in the 1960s. The Dualit toaster soon became an integral part of many kitchens in England. In 1964 the Dualit Waffle Iron was added to the range and in the 1990s Dualit produced its first wireless electric kettle with a 360 degree base.
Today, a wide variety of kitchen appliances are produced in the Dualit creative workshop. The company is still managed by Max Fort-Barten’s son Leslie. Reliable, well-designed products continue to be the core business of the company.
Today the toasters have a nostalgic retro design that echoes the first Dualit toaster from the 1950s. Many Dualit products have been awarded prizes such as the Good Housekeeping Approved Award, the Which? best buy award and the Good Housekeeping Consumer Award.
