I got a letter in the mail today from Kohl’s.  No, they didn’t send me a discount, they sent me a letter telling me the crock pot I bought last November was being recalled.  So, I called the 1-800 number and waited on hold for 6 min and 45 sec. for them to tell me to go to the website that was on the letter and download, and fill out the form.  Why didn’t go to the website first?

I filled out the form, pulled the sticker off the botttom of pot, cut the cord at the base of the crockpot and then went to look for the original cash register receipt.  I put my receipts in a pocket of a calendar for every month.  I bought the crockpot on black Friday, I didn’t find the receipt in the November envelope, so I thought I might have put it in the Dec. envelope.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the  Dec. envelope.  I found all the envelopes for the rest of the year and the previous year, but not Dec.  I did find the bill from Kohl’s, so I was able to at least give them the info they asked for even if I don’t have the original receipt.

My next question is, how long can I live without a crockpot?  I use it at least once a week.  I don’t want to buy a new one until I know how much they are going to reimburse for the one they recalled.  I’m afraid they might not pay me, because I couldn’t find my receipt.

What kitchen appliance or tool can you not live without?

    I am so impressed with your receipt system!!! I suggest trying a few garage sales this weekend. You never know…

    I’d find it pretty hard to live without a microwave! That’s a no-brainer, huh? Actually I LOVE my Pampered Chef food chopper.

  • Robin,

    Good idea about trying a garage sale.

    If you need to borrow my crock pot until yours gets returned, let me know. I don’t use mine as much as you do (once a month, if I’m lucky). I couldn’t live without the microwave, stove, oven, and most importantly, the FRIDGE!!!!! Tool I use the most – my kitchen knife. It never seems to be clean long enough to get put back in the drawer.

    We probably COULD live without our griddle if we had to, but I sure wouldn’t want to right now. My 3-year-old is OBSESSED with pancakes and we use that silly, cheap griddle quite often. Sorry about your crock pot!!

    Bummer! I love my crock-pot. I use mine a lot during the winter. I don’t know if you are a crock-potter in the winter, but if so, better to get fixed now.

    Hey Amy! I have 2!! Ha! Ha! I’m more than happy to lend you one. Especially if you or Bill are planning on entering the chili cookoff on Sunday. I’ll be heading your way on Thur or Friday evening if you want me to bring it by.
