Cuisinart Recall

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.

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.

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.

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.

 

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.
