My Cuisinart BRK-200 died this week. As many loaves and stuff I roasted in that thing, the writing was on the wall. But what a dissapointment after so many nice things came out of it including porchetta, croissants, muffins, chickens, and the list goes on.
I tweeted Cusinart to see if they could help fix it. They offered me the 1- 800 number, but... no use. The voice on the other end basically said the company doesn't fix them once they die. "And what if I wanted to replace it?" I inquired. "We don't make them anymore!" I was abruptly told.
So I am back to heating my huge stove, using crude untested methods to make what were once amazing pizzas in a mini oven that topped at 500 F. Creuset pot is back in use to get the sheen of a brilliant loaf as well, and it gets hot in summer. What's wrong with manufacturing, service and repair? We waste too much! C'mon Cuisinart, snap out of it!
Guess the only thing to do is open a bakery and get a Bongard?
