Gourmet Club Apple Wedger Should Be Recalled

Postby Apoptosis » Wed Oct 09, 2013 4:24 pm

I bought a Gourmet Club Apple Wedger this afternoon and it broke before cutting the first apple.

This is a Chinese piece of junk made by Best Brands Consumer Products, INC. and sold at Walmart for $4. When it broke the blade came out and cut my thumb. Not a happy camper at all. I went to e-mail them and complain about the safety of this product, but guess what... The Best Brands website isn't loading - http://bestbrands.com/

Probably owned by ASRock since it was probably broken in the packaging but it was still your fault :finga:

Its a friggen apple slicer, shouldn't cost that much.

My question is why move away from the tried and true all metal design for something injection molded... oh I know, because plastic breaks. My mom has an all stainless apple slicer that she bought when I was a toddler, my kids use it now.

Key thing to notice is that it was purchased years ago, when they knew how to make products designed to last...

I bought a metal apple wedger, it lasted about 6 months before the blades came out like Nates did....

My Fiance bought a plastic one at Hannaford that's lasted about a year but is showing the plastic starting to crack where the metal blades come into it, getting an all-metal one from Pampered Chef now (just need to pick up at party host's house now) you can find the all-metal ones at many kitchen and home type stores, and maybe even Hannaford

We don't get much of anything at Walmart these days, just Lightbulbs and office supplies really
