Beware of the warranty--the shipping costs are on you

We have a 6 month old cuisinart toaster oven with a defective switch or timer, will cost likely $50 to ship to them across the country. Cuisinart's 3 year warranty is worthless! Buyer beware! please add to your blog!

We Got Satisfaction!!

We complained to Cuisinart's customer service and asked whomever received it to forward our complaint to the highest authority possible. We really expected nothing to come of it...

our complaint explained that the warranty was worthless due to the shipping requirement - after 34 days or so, we received a reply from someone named Oral England.

This was his response:

"Please advise if someone from our consumer service has further contacted you in reference to your Cuisinart Toaster Oven and a replacement. If this matter as not being cleared up please allow me to send you an immediate replacement. We apologise for any inconvenience."

Oral did not mention his position in the company, but I am guessing he is likely the manager in charge of customer service staff.

It is terrible that it took 2 complaints, some pushing, and a long wait, but they did take care of us in the end.

our problem is resolved - the new toaster oven does not shut off randomly, nor does it make a hum when it is plugged in like our first one did.

I have a K-cup coffe maker model SS700NC that would not stop pumping at end of cycle.
Unit was purchased with gift card at Kohl's in Feb of 2012. Well, it failed 12/22/12 and I called Cuisinart to complain. Turns out the pump was a manufacturing defect and should had been returned by the store before I had even gotten it. The rep also informed me it was almost 3years old!! Thanks Kohl's for cycling your stock! So she took my info and told me I should receive a replacement unit soon and mentioned nothing else but me being responsible for the return shipping charge, fien with that. Then it came and to find I was Being charged $10 to ship it to me!! What balls to do this to a customer, let alone it was also defective from maufacturing!
Argued with the supervisor with no result and cited that no company would expect to bill you shipping to send the new one to you. As I was not informed of this "charge" when I talked to the rep, they will not receive it. It was a known defect and I will not pay for it.
