After browsing the link to KitchenAid's repair/recall section by the link, one would think that the company would get the hint that the c**p coming out of China is not good for the safety or goodwill of thier customers.

If you check out some of the other recalls in this section, you'll see a disproportionate number involving Chinese-made electrics.

I've made it a point of staying away from products made there whenever possible.
