Not bad if you are into metal shavings and flying blades

This is my Cuisinart Sucks story:: A few years back I bought the CUISINART SMARTPOWER PREMIER BLENDER, Model #CBT500/CBT500C. I can say In the few years I've owned it that it has been used no more than 40 times. I decided to use it yesterday to mix a cocoa drink and heard I very loud grinding sound. After pouring out the drink I looked underneath the solution holder and found that the nut holding the bolt to the blade was not there. There was also a large amount of metal shaving sitting on top of the motorized assembly. What in the world happened! It's not like I used it a few hundred times and things started to wear away. Plus this situation was potentially very dangerous, with a blade spinning at a high RPM could have come up the shaft and slammed into the glass cup area. I called CUISINART, they asked for my first name and wanted to sell me a new blade. What kind of company is this anyway?  I'll never buy any of their products ever again. MADE IN CHINA, that tells me a lot.

of course the obvious biggot consumer, well mr biggot, lets first start off by saying, 90 percent of american businesses are using manufacturers in CHINA, so before you blame the chinese blame corporate america first, second did it ever occur to you that maybe the shaving occur possibly when you most likely to the jar off the base while still in use, sure lets exclude that part of it to put the blame on others for a user error, what we call an id.10t little technical humor.... good day mr biggot
