Cuisinart History

cuisinart 1

Cuisinart was founded in 1971 by Carl Sontheimer in Chicago, Illinois. After a trip to France where Sontheimer and his wife saw an early version of a food processor, Carl decided that he could make something similar which would drastically reduce the preparation time for cooks.

A graduate of MIT, Sontheimer took apart the prototype that he brought from France, he streamlined some items and refined others. In 1973, Sontheimer introduced “The Food Processor” at the National Housewares Expedition in Chicago, Illinois.

cuisinart 4  It didn’t catch on right away. Most people thought of the food processor as nothing more than a high priced blender. By 1975, however, his product was being used by Julia Childs and James Beard, as well as being featured in Gourmet magazine.

In 1977, the market suddenly turned for Cuisinart, with orders going from a few units each month to hundreds of units each month. By the end of 1977, sales had hit the $50 million mark.

Cuisinart began making several different models of food processors before branching out in 1986.

Today, the company makes toaster ovens, blenders, coffee makers, cookware, slow cookers, stand mixers, and much more. Cuisinart 2   The company sells its products in almost every brick and mortar store, as well as online stores and their own online site, in the US, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, Canada, and Hong Kong. The company has a manufacturing facility in Rantoul, Illinois and headquarters are located in Stamford, Connecticut.

Conair Corporation acquired the company in 1989 for $60 million. Cuisinart 5

RE: Customer Service interaction concerning a defective product (other previous emails not shown).

Not COOL! Your letter identifies me as a Valued Customer yet you deny me help even though your warranty rhetoric in the manual that came with my Cuisinart PrepExpress states the follow: “This warranty is available to consumers only. You are a consumer if you own a Cuisinart PrepExpress that was purchased at retail for personal, family or household use.” It does not say ‘except if purchased on eBay’. I purchased this item at retail price and I AM a consumer. The box was brand new and unopened. The problem is a defect in the product that occurred in the making of it. There was no damage to the item upon receipt, nothing broken, nothing used to make this problem evolve once it left the manufacturer. Unless of course, your company knew that this and other units were made at that time were prone to defects and sold the lot to someone that would sell them anyway?

I was honest and forthright with you about buying it on eBay, for which I am being denied my warranty rights. If I had been dishonest and told you it was a Christmas Gift and I wasn’t sure where it was purchased, would I have been treated differently?

So pardon me if I call your company hypocritical and not working in the best interest of a Valued Customer. Whatever happened to “Satisfaction Guaranteed”?

A Very Angry Consumer,
Zackra Mark
