This warranty supersedes all previous warranties on Cuisinart® Can Opener.
This warranty is available to consumers only. You are a consumer if you own a
Cuisinart® Can Opener that was purchased at retail for personal, family, or household
use. Except as otherwise required under applicable state law, this warranty is not
available to retailers or other commercial purchasers or owners. We warrant that your
Cuisinart® Can Opener will be free of defects in material or workmanship under normal home use for three years from the date of original purchase. We suggest that you
complete and return the enclosed product registration card promptly to facilitate
verification of the date of original purchase. However, return of the product registration
card 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.
If your can opener should prove to be defective within the warranty period, we will
repair it or, if we think it necessary, replace it. To obtain warranty service, please call
our Consumer Service Center toll-free at 1-800-726-0190 or write to:
Cuisinart, 150 Milford Road, East Windsor, NJ 08520
To facilitate the speed and accuracy of your return, please enclose $10.00 for shipping
and handling of the product. Please also be sure to include a return address, daytime
phone number, description of the product defect, product serial number (stamped on
bottom of product base), and any other information pertinent to the product’s return.
Please pay by check or money order. (California residents need only supply proof of
purchase and should call 1-800-726-0190 for shipping instructions).
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.
Your Cuisinart® Can Opener has been manufactured to strict specifications and has
been designed for use with the Cuisinart® Can Opener accessories and replacement
parts. These warranties expressly exclude any defects or damages caused by
accessories, replacement parts, or repair service other than those that have been
authorized by Cuisinart. These warranties do not cover any damage caused by
accident, misuse, shipment, or other than ordinary household use. These warranties
exclude all incidental or consequential damages. Some states do not allow the
exclusion of or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the foregoing
limitation may not apply to you.
California Residents Only
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 which sells Cuisinart® products of the same type. The
retail store shall then, according to its preferences, 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 either of the above two options does not result 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, at 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.
Before Returning Your Cuisinart Product
If you are experiencing problems with your Cuisinart® product, we suggest that you
call our Consumer Service Center at 1-800-726-0190 before returning the product for
servicing. Often, our Consumer Service Representatives can help solve the problem
without having the product serviced. If servicing is needed, a Representative can
confirm whether the product is under warranty and direct you to the nearest service
*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.
