However, many consumers were left disappointed when their Copper Chef pans turned useless soon after they bought it. A few of these complaints include:

“This washer is supposed to be top of the line material!” This type of frustration has been voiced by a significant number of LG washer owners during the past few years. LG promotes their washers as “energy efficient” and tout their LG TrueBalance anti-vibration system as being “designed to reduce washer noise and vibration for smooth, quiet performance in any room of the house[.]” Unfortunately, LG washers and their TrueBalance technology has been anything but “top of the line.” Consumers around the country have observed LG washers continually running into “rebalancing” issues—generally identified by the error code “UE” flashing on the machine screen—that force consumers to pay for new control panels and/or software fixes, as well as causing the washers to use more water and energy than normal so as to avoid future “rebalancing” issues.

It has only been installed for 5 months and already the water line is leaking just before the connector. It was a slow drip and ruined our wood floors.

All 6 water supply lines that came leaked and had to be replaced by new ones bought at [L]owes, products were cheap but are not I got what I paid for, I wish I could return just the water lines but I don’t think amazon will allow me to do that.

CCMS HAS ENDED ITS INVESTIGATION INTO THIS ISSUE.

Rock-hard, 6-pack abs … we all want them, right? If you live in America and watch enough late-night television, you’ve probably seen commercials for everything from the “Ab Roller” to “8 Minute Abs” and everything in between. And it’s clear why—Americans want to look good, but due to our busy lifestyles we want to do as little as possible while still maximizing results. Enter the Flex Belt, Slendertone and Contour ab belt systems: wearable electrical-stimulation belts that tie around your stomach and force your abdominal muscles to contract repeatedly for anywhere from a few sections to a few minutes. Both products are manufactured by the same Ireland-based company and make identical promises: “TONE, TIGHTEN, FIRM AND STRENGTHEN YOUR ABS” … “Get strong, toned abs in weeks” . . . “Slendertone toning products include everything you need to tone, firm and strengthen your muscles. All Slendertone products are clinically proven to deliver results.” And according to the Flex Belt website:

The Flex Belt will stimulate all your major stomach muscles at the same time providing you with the perfect abdominal contraction – that means your upper abs, the lower abs and even your obliques are going to get worked from The Flex Belt… and it does all the work for you. You don’t have to worry about your form or come up with the time to get it done. The Flex Belt is clinically demonstrated to deliver firmer, stronger and more toned abdominal muscles while you are: at home, at work, watching TV, exercising, folding laundry, helping your kids with their homework, taking a walk… virtually anytime and anywhere.
