Overstock.com Complaint - Made in the USA...Not!
We attempt to buy products made in America whenever possible. When needing to replace our coffee maker, we did research on the Internet and Overstock.com advertised a Cuisinart coffee maker as being "made in the USA." We ordered it, and upon receipt the box clearly indicated that it was made in China. Just to be certain, we contacted Cuisinart customer service and were told that "all our products are made in China." Disappointed, we wrote a negative review on Overstock's site. This review was never posted. We contacted Overstock customer service and they agreed to accept the return of this product without additional shipping charges to us (hence the 1 star). We asked the very polite and helpful customer service representative from Overstock to have this Cuisinart coffee maker and all other Cuisinart products (and there were a number of them under the coffeemaker section alone) removed from their "made in the USA" designated list. Approximately a month later this coffee maker (Cuisinart DTC-975 ) along with at least another 6 Cuisinart coffee makers are still being touted as "made in the USA." I would doubt if many, if any, of the products they advertise as "made in the USA" actually are. It just seems like an underhanded way of moving some merchandise and taking advantage of the American consumer's desire to bring/keep business in the USA.
