Consumers warned on safety of kitchen appliances sold online

Online shoppers have been warned to check safety licences on electrical appliances and toys before making purchases. The warning came after the Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) said it was expanding its investigations into the source of online products, after finding that many are not registered with the TISI.

 

Wanchai Phanomchai, secretary-general of Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI), announced the move after an inspection of DMall Commercial and Trading Co warehouses in Onnut district revealed more than 1,400 illegally imported electrical appliances and toys worth Bt2.3 million.

 

Among the unregistered items stored at the warehouse for sale online were more than 1,000 air fryers, grill pans, shubu pots, sandwich makers, ovens, and toys. TISI officials seized the items and are taking legal action against the company.

 

"Cheap electrical appliances are becoming popular among consumers, resulting in the smuggling of large quantities of unregistered and unsafe products for sale in Thailand – especially low-price air fryers, which are gaining popularity with people who are staying home amid the Covid-19 outbreak,” said Wanchai.

 

He advised consumers to carefully check products before purchasing them online, as those without a TISI licence number might not be safe to use.

If it's just rusty it isn't as bad as plugging it in and touching the box for flickering lights and unintended dance performance...

Mrs bought a backpack rechargeable garden poison spray machine from Shoppee, Bht 650.

The input socket on the unit is a 'kettle plug' as used on many hifis, kettles etc. Great I thought.

On further opening of the box I found a power supply 220V AC to 12 V DC, with....you guessed it, a KETTLE PLUG.

The one that always gets me is the twin core flex with a 3 pin plug on the end.

So strange, I buy all my Miele online. Never had a problem.

 

Of course that was in Germany.

That, BTW, is just about the only brand left that still has quality. Some German made Bosch appliances as well. And Kitched Aid from US - classic american overengineering. 

 

A very, very far cry from the 3C (Cheap Chinese <deleted>) products. Price sticker matches, of course. You can buy quality item once and be happy using it for a decade, or buy 1000 3C products in that 10 years and be miserable ( and lose money at the end ).

 

Don't buy CCC(P).

Yeah well, even if it was 3-core, how many houses actually have the ground connected all the way and properly ...

 

Schuko is the best type of plug IMHO. And again .. German.
