TYRONE, PENNSYLVANIA -- I bought a Toastmaster hand mixer back in November 2018. Its has been used maybe 10 times. This morning I am mixing up icing for a cake & was beating the ingredients together. When almost finished the mixer just up has a fit & quits working. Well for all the longer I have had the stupid mixer & all the more it's been used it a lousy waste of my money. Sorry I ever bought the piece of junk! Needless to say Toastmaster I will never ever buy another product of yours. I will never recommend your product to anyone. JUNK crap that all needs pulled off the store shelves!
MELVIN, MICHIGAN -- Purchased a Toastmaster coffee pot from Dollar General 8 months ago. The thing worked fine until Sunday February 11, 2017 when I turned the coffee pot on and a flame shot out of the on/off switch causing burns to my finger and to my counter. I have been trying since Monday 2/13/2017 to make contact with the company and have been passed around from department to department with no help, everyone states they need to transfer me. Please if you have this model throw it away. This is beyond upsetting that it seems to be a common problem and yet no recalls.
Started coffee maker this morning and walked away... Roommate went to get a cup and the coffee had fully brewed but light was off. He went to switch it, felt it was loose, and a flame shot out and shocked him! Scary indeed. And I've read this is nothing new for this product. :O. Can't seem to find who to report to either. I'll dig through receipts and booklets I know I have as I bought it less than six months ago.
After believing it was just a fluke, I was dumb enough to go and get the second one. The lid is manufactured to spill half the coffee straight from the pot. Never again!!! Both will be put in the garbage and I'll never buy another. I figure they've wasted more coffee than the pot costs. Just look at the lid and you'll see that the spout opening is rotated to the right. It should say "Built especially for spills". I'm done. I'll spend more money next time and buy a product that is usable!!!
GATES, NORTH CAROLINA -- Toastmaster Model TM122Cm - I went to make a pot of coffee on Sunday morning and the on/off switch blew up and I had it just about caught a fire but lucky I unplugged it and I am very unhappy it was not even 2 months old so they need to take them off the shelves. Would be nice if the company would repay us or replace it with something better, nothing less will do.
MANSFIELD, OHIO -- We bought a Toastmaster 12 cup coffee pot model # TM-122 CM from Dollar General in Oct 2014, worked like a charm for 3 days! It would not put the water through, okay no big deal. We returned it for another one thinking it was just a fluke. I was pleased with the coffee pot and used it almost every day. Today I made a pot of coffee, poured a cup, got busy doing my housework, came back about 45 minutes later and poured another cup.
I was upstairs and heard a pop. I came down to investigate the odd sound. There on my kitchen floor was the on/off switch from the coffee pot! The whole thing was black! You could see where the inside of that switch had sparked! Thank God we had it plugged into a GSI outlet that turned the power off to that outlet as soon as the coffee pot popped otherwise it could have caused a fire!! I am totally disgusted with Toastmaster's quality. When I called the store I bought it from the lady who answered told me I wasn't the only one who has had a problem with this coffee maker.
I just bought 2 of these cheaper kettles for our office. They are both going back, the handles get hot when the kettle boils, not good at all! A fire hazard and safety issue!!! One of the kettles leaked when we boiled it for the first time. Terrible product and for something so simple to be so wrong, it's a huge concern. DO NOT BUY, spend the extra few bucks and get strong brand name!
I bought your electric can opener because in the old days your name stood for something. This is just another example of imported crap that we pay our good money for. Model 2247 is stamped passed by an inspector for what a paper weight? When are you people going to wake up? I will think twice before I buy anything Toastmaster again.
