So, inf the middle of the night, the cats set it off, which is quite annoying. The freezer drawers were so poorly designed ( at least for me , anyway). Its annoying when there is a power outage, I have to reset like 100 digital clocks ( and you have to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to do each one).
Hi Larry

Sounds like you don't have much luck with your appliances. The fridge seal in most cases should push into a tight groove which you may be able to do yourself with a flat screwdriver. I will look into the timer issue! I know what you mean about the freezer draws, all of ours are broken. Thanks for your message Larry, have a good Christmas.

Why not, we have thread with all kind off cooking tricks and advices, etc.

Is dirty filter above the stove considered a problem? If yes, I hate cleaning mine. I wish there was an easier way to deal with it.

Thanks for your constructive input.
Is it just me or does anyone else smell an agenda coming or some type of self/company promotion? I do believe you can buy ad space here.

It's not just you. The question is so vague that, to me, it's meaningless.

Perhaps not agenda but student project?

Could even be simple market research?

This here internet is the wave of the future.

Since The Cooker Man was asking about problems with cooking appliances, cooker's, ovens etc. I'll answer with this.

I don't care about all the fancy stuff new products offer. Being able to access my stove from the internet holds no interest to me.
I also don't care how many functions it has or if it can tap-dance while it cooks.
What I want is a product that preforms the basic need I bought it for and will last for a long time and not crap out .00001 second past it's warranty date. (Sorta like things were made in the past.)

If you can offer me a product like that at a price I can afford I'll buy it.

If that's what it is, it's pretty amateurish.

No, Chuck, that's the instructions for shampoo.
And tire rims.

It's an innocent enough question, albeit vague and difficult to answer within an unspecified context, but why be so cynical?

Be creative. The guy wants to work, so allow him to the task.

Ok, so, solutions to problems. I have one.

What is the best small toaster oven that will heat up quickly, but also cleans up easily, and doesn't have features that I don't need that can break down, and will last a long time.
