service, please call our Consumer Service Center toll-free at 1-800-726-0190 or write to:
Cuisinart, 7811 North Glen Harbor Blvd., Glendale, AZ 85307. To facilitate the speed
and accuracy of your return, enclose $10.00 for shipping and handling. (California
residents need only supply a proof of purchase and should call 1-800-726-0190 for
shipping instructions.) Please be sure to include your return address, description of the
product’s defect, product serial number, and any other information pertinent to the
return. Please pay by check or money order. NOTE: For added protection and secure
handling of any Cuisinart product that is being returned, we recommend you use a
traceable, insured delivery service. Cuisinart cannot be held responsible for in-transit
damage or for packages that are not delivered to us. Lost and/or damaged products are
not covered under warranty.
This warranty is available to consumers only. You are a consumer if you own a Cuisinart
Baby® Electric Steam Sterilizer that was purchased at retail for personal, family or
household use. Except as otherwise required under applicable law, this warranty is not
available to retailers or other commercial purchasers or owners.
We warrant that your Cuisinart Baby® Electric Steam Sterilizer will be free of defects in
materials and workmanship under normal home use for 3 years from
the date of original purchase.
We recommend that you visit our website, www.cuisinart.com for a fast, efficient way
to complete your product registration. However, product registration does not eliminate
the need for the consumer to maintain the original proof of purchase in order to obtain
the warranty benefits. In the event that you do not have proof of purchase date, the
purchase date for purposes of this warranty will be the date of manufacture.
Your Cuisinart Baby® Electric Steam Sterilizer has been manufactured to the strictest
specifications and has been designed for use only in 120-volt outlets and only with
authorized accessories and replacement parts. This warranty expressly excludes any
defects or damages caused by attempted use of this unit with a converter, as well as
use with accessories, replacement parts or repair service other than those authorized
by Cuisinart. This warranty does not cover any damage caused by accident, misuse,
shipment or other than ordinary household use. This warranty excludes all incidental or
consequential damages. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of these
damages, so these exclusions may not apply to you. You may also have other rights,
which vary from state to state.
California law provides that for In-Warranty Service, California residents have the option
of returning a nonconforming product (A) to the store where it was purchased or (B)
to another retail store that sells Cuisinart products of the same type. The retail store
shall then, according to its preference, either repair the product, refer the consumer to
an independent repair facility, replace the product, or refund the purchase price less
the amount directly attributable to the consumer’s prior usage of the product. If neither
of the above two options results in the appropriate relief to the consumer, the consumer
may then take the product to an independent repair facility, if service or repair can be
economically accomplished. Cuisinart and not the consumer will be responsible for the
reasonable cost of such service, repair, replacement, or refund for nonconforming
products under warranty. California residents may also, according to their preference,
return nonconforming products directly to Cuisinart for repair or, if necessary,
replacement by calling our Consumer Service Center toll-free at 1-800-726-0190.
Cuisinart will be responsible for the cost of the repair, replacement, and shipping and
handling for such nonconforming products under warranty.
Important: If the nonconforming product is to be serviced by someone other than
Cuisinart’s Authorized Service Center, please remind the servicer to call our Consumer
Service Center at 1-800-726-0190 to ensure that the problem is properly diagnosed,
the product is serviced with the correct parts, and to ensure that the product is still
under warranty.
