Incident Details
  • Incident Description: I have owned a Cuisinart TOB-40 Toaster Oven for about 5 years. The last few weeks the door has started opening difficult. Today after cooking toast twice when I went to open the door the second time it was once again hard to open and then completely shattered all over the place. Luckily I was not hurt by small glass fragments that went everywhere. I was able to clean up all the small chunks and slivers of glass up after about an hour. Had this been a child or the oven was at eye level it could have seriously injured someone. I have notified Cuisinart today and they are sending me a replacement oven but not sure I really want another one of this similar model now a TOB-40N. There is already a recall on this over for electric cord. Not sure if the newer model will fix the door and glass breakage or only correct the power cord issue.
