I have wanted a Dualit toaster for a while now, and finally decided to go and get me a 4 slice polished steel toaster.
So I went down to NK and found it, and they wanted 4995:- ! for one.

I knew it was gonna be rough, but 5K!

So I went online and bought one from the UK and shipped it here.
And even with DHL shipping charges etc, it came to 1820:-

Thats a saving of over 3175:-

Next up is a vacuum cleaner ...
I want a Dyson and they cost 5500:- for the old model over here.
And yet if I order the newer model from the UK ... ship it over.
I will still make a HUGE savings (over 2k).

So the moral of this story ... buy from abroad (in europe) and reap the savings.
New plugs dont cost much ... So dont be afraid to look.

Yeah, the moral of the story is also to never shop at NK. The only thing that makes them unique are their prices and their snotty customers.

While NK can have a snooty image at times, generally speaking their prices are not always that bad (apart from this toaster) . ICA has a food department in NK and I have to say its one of the better ICA's I know of and I shop there a lot. And to be quite honest the food department is fairly cheap on common / everyday foods.

I still think the moral of this story is if you are interested in somethings it can be quick and cheaper to buy some stuff from europe.

Perhaps the moral of this story could also be not to attach so much importance to consumer junk. 1820 SEK for a toaster?

You got to be kidding! I don't know where you shop elsewhere, but everytime I've done a comparison they are 50-100% more expensive than normal shops.

No I am after a DC23T2
they dont have any of those on prisjakt.se or pricerunner.se

And in regards to the 1800:-, yes it was pricey for a toaster ... but I wanted it and treated myself to one. And if it should break, then technically I could get spare parts for it since its a commercial designed product.

No I am not kidding, have a look again and see.

I used to shop ICA Globen, and ICA Artsa. (before moving into the city)
And NK ICA is generally cheaper on allot of everyday foods.

Check out price runner - they have Dualit 4 slice toasters starting at 1500-3500 - depending on what model you want - I still like my thick and thin 4 slice toaster that I got in Dalarna for 600 kr

At NK you pay the prices of the rich and famous

What sort of Dyson are you after?

Yes, ICA is no difference. I'm talking about the rest. NK Mode, NK Hemma etc...

Cheers,
but the duralit vario 4 slice toaster is still allot more expensive over here than ordering one from the UK.
Its still a 2k saving.

If, as it appears, you have lots of money you just can't wait to get rid of, I will happily put it to good use. wink.gif

Dysons are noted by Which magazine as one the most unreliable vacuums on the market. In addition the treacherous James Dyson outsourced production to Korea despite having very profitable UK operations. Workers who had been with him since production began and sometimes worked for reduced pay before things picked up were thrown on the industrial scrapheap.

I gather it has become a growing factor of life in Britain, with it becoming the poorest value for money despite the high salaries.
