Chris is buying Made-in-the-USA from now on

This is my Cuisinart Sucks story::  I have /had a cuisinart blend central, blender /smotthie dispenser/food processor. 

After less than a year and probably only 25 uses it started smelling hot then came to a screeching halt. upon investigation I found that several screws that hold the motor in place have broken loose causing the motor to fall and contact the plastic housing. the result is the little wheel welding itself to the housing.

After talking to someone at customer service I found that there is a warrantee for this unit, after I box it up, pay to send it back and send a $10 check to cover return shipping.

I didn't break this thing, I didn't design this thing and I didn't build this thing. so why should I have to pay more to have it fixed for a manufacturing defect?

I'm done with with companies that build crap.

If I can't find something made in the USA from now on, I guess I don't need it;.

Chris, I understand your frustration, so much so that I started my own site where I've started to list American manufacturers and the products they make. I even have a page dedicated to blenders made in the USA, to date there over 1500 listings in the whole site with 3 manufacturers that make blenders, and guess what Cuisinart is one of them, but only 1 model I've been able to find (spb-600)...based on their Amazon information.

That's the thing about finding US made items, most of the time you end up having to call the manufacturer and hassle with customer service or their sales dept. to try to find out which of their products are domestic and imported, and you're lucky if they'll tell you at all...
