Cuisinart Recall

173 posts in this topic

I have one of these.  I've spent some time redialing 877-339-2534 (the supposed number to call) and getting nothing but a busy signal.  My last call tells me the number has been disconnected.  Does anyone have a number that works? I am so sick of Chinese made garbage.

I just filed the report online. My canned reply tells me they're  sending me a new blade, and asks me to accept their apology.    Accept their canned apology?   This infuriates me.

Like most places, there are all kinds of items of really incredible quality coming out of China, along with the duds. And not every product I have purchased that was made here at home has been the best, though I do feel better about keeping the work and money here.

My blade did exactly what this recall describes! And yesterday my Osterizer blender blade broke while whirring up salad dressing (!!!). Cheap expensive crap.

Feeling for y'all. I'm still using/loving my 80s-vintage Japanese-built Cuis, but hope to pick up a spare from eBay or Kijiji against the evil day that it finally gives up the ghost.

The website doesn't load.  I called.  Got a busy signal several times, then a recording that told me to drop dead.  Actually it said they couldn't answer their phone, and I could submit a claim on online or by email.  But didn't tell me how I'd do that.  So, yeah, drop dead.

i got through.   

 

they didn't need the SN  which is impossible to decipher  Ill give them that.

 

its not just the models mentioned .  may of those models have letters after them and they count

 

ie  DLC-2011   includes a zillion w letters after the initial sequencxe

 

just keep trying.

I was easily able to register for the new blade for my DLC2014!

like someone else here mentioned, with 8 million recalls, I just wonder how long it will actually take to get my replacement.

interesting question    I have not gotten an email back yet , but I copied the ' ticket '

 

it seems that < 100 or so issues were reported , including cuts in the mouth.

 

so lets say  its under reported by 1/2

 

that's  200 out of potentially 8 million blades out there.  as this goes way be to the end of the 90 ' , 1/4 are retired, 

 

that still 6 million blades.   say 50 % of the people see the recall and act

 

3 million blades     I recall a replacement blade was around 30 + bucks.  say 33 % profit  

 

thats a hit to the company of about 60 million dollars.

 

cuisinart is owned by Conair Corporation.  its a private company

 

Rats !    I wanted to see how its stock was doing today.

 

at least its not snowing here.
