Case Name

Chepiga v. Conair Corporation,
Case No. 3:17-cv-01090
District Court for the District of New Jersey

Case Summary

The lawsuit concerns Conair Corporation’s recall of the Cuisinart machines’ riveted blades. Some users have reported that when using the Cuisinart machines, the riveted blade could crack over time, causing portions of the blade to detach. The lawsuit claims that Conair promoted the Cuisinart machines as functional when in fact they did not function as claimed, that the machines lost value when consumers had to stop using the riveted blades, and that Conair violated express and implied warranties.

  8. Lynn says:

    I have a Cuisinart DLC-10 that I received as a wedding present. I called the Cuisinart recall line and it looks like my machine may have been manufactured prior to Conair’s acquisition of Cuisinart in 1989. So, instead of being helped immediately by an operator at the recall line or via the online registration, I need to send an e-mail to their customer service department to send photographs of the blade and machine. This is an inconvenience, but I am grateful that for the most part, the machine has worked for over 30 years!

    ADMIN – Hi Lynn,

    Your blade may simply be old. Appliances are not designed to last forever.
