BE FOREWARNED: I just got off of the phone with Cuisinart customer care 1 hour ago to ask if a slight rattling sound IN my 10" French Classic Fryer (FCT22-25F) was normal. She confirmed it's not. Then she asked me if I can return it to the store that I got it from, I told her it was over 2 months ago, so no. She then said it's under "Lifetime Warranty", but that I have to pay for shipping back to their factory WITH a $7 check to have them ship either a replacement fryer to me, or repaired fryer... What's worst is that it can take 4-6 weeks! No loaner, nothing. It's absolutely the WORST warranty policy. What good is a "Lifetime Warranty" if they make it so hard as to discourage you from filing one? I would expect this from a rinky-dink company. Shame on Cuisinart. I will never buy another item from them again.
