Mercy among the Appliances: Suzy writes the breadmaker company

(This is a developing story - Visit The Jimtown Enquirer for regular updates on our attempts to seek compassion from The Man ... aka Cuisinart. What follows is Suzy's letter to the breadmaker company)


My bread maker tried to commit suicide.

It rattled itself to the edge of the counter and dove off during the mixing cycle while I was taking a bath and my one year old boy was napping.

Scared the crap out of me!

I thought my kid had fallen out of his crib!

Thankfully, though regretfully, it was my reliable bread maker that has been churning out fresh bread for my husband's peanut butter sandwiches he takes on the boat at five am fishing. Dough on the floor, bits of plastic thrown across the room, lid snapped off.

I tried to salvage the loaf by letting it rise and attempting the bake only setting with the lid jammed on but it was a flat, doughy disaster. My sister in law gave us the breadmaker for Christmas two years ago and I haven't got a clue where the warranty info is and I doubt it even matters. I just wanted to let you know that my husband is quite disappointed with his store bought bread sandwiches and I miss the smell of baking bread.

Thank you for listening, 

Suzy Beswick
