Hunting for appliances
For example, an electric mixer spun the blades when we turned it on, but there was no way to get the blades to release, which we discovered after using it to mix a cake. The microwave turned on and then at about 15 seconds in, popped a circuit breaker each time we tried to use it at home. When we tried to return these items, we couldn’t. Most of the stores had an “All Sales Final” policy. So, I learned my lesson. Now I only buy mechanical or electrical items from stores that test and inspect them thoroughly, and I make sure that their policy is to refund my money if they fail.
Have a great week!
