Comfortable in the knowledge that there are literally scores of punters who’d fork out £1,000 for a device that heats up bread, Dualit has added this 24-carat gold-plated toaster to its collection.

The virtually unbreakable device combines a gold-plated retro design with four slots that can produce up to 130 slices in an hour. Which is the same amount as one of their £195 versions but, well, this one’s gold.

In fact, the new super-toaster doesn’t really bring anything else to the table other than a bit of extra gilding. Maybe the occasional muffin. But we don’t care because it looks like it’s been created for Mr T, and that makes it fine by us.

Available exclusively at Selfridges.
