Kenwood coffee makers fail quality test

ELECTRICAL problems have been found in coffee makers made by British-based manufacturer Kenwood, city quality watchdogs said yesterday.

Quality issues were also uncovered in electric kettles made by leading Chinese manufacturer ASD, reported the Shanghai Quality and Technical Supervision Bureau.

These items had been on sale at large home appliances chains, department stores and supermarkets in the city.

Coffee makers produced by the Dongguan Kenwood Electrical Appliance Co Ltd failed quality tests for protective earthing measures, said officials.

These had been sold at an outlet of Shanghai Orient Shopping Center.

Problems were also found with electric kettles made by Zhejiang ASD Electrical Appliance Co Ltd

Inspectors uncovered a number of issues with the kettles, including protection of electrical parts, the bureau said.

They had been on sale at the Tianlin outlet of Yongle, one of the largest home appliances chains in the city.

Similar problems were also found with electric kettles sold at the Changyang outlet of Auchan supermarket and Shanghai No.1 Department Store.

Also found wanting, were electric cookers bearing the brand Longli, made by a Guangdong company. Inspectors discovered potential hazards in power leaks, the bureau said.

These substandard products have been taken off shelves.

The bureau examined 60 batches of electrical appliances made or sold in the city, and found quality problems in five.
