I purchased the ConAirMan Simple Cut haircutting clip as I just usually cut my hair really close all around. The first use was great as expected from ConAir. The next use was not so great. I put on a #1 guard and proceeded to start cutting. Things didn't seem quite right so I went to a bigger guard to see if it helped, but it did not. So went down to no guard and continued to cut. After a couple of passes, it was done, it was pulling my hair out and not cutting it. So I ended up throwing the set away. Don't recommend getting this kit.
I purchased a Cuisinart motorized toaster model CPT-420C in October 2021 from The Bay. I noticed that after about 4 months only one side of the bread would toast. I thought that this was because I was using only 1 slot and if I put 2 slices of bread then perhaps both sides would be toasted - well: sometimes yes and occasionally no. I wanted to speak to someone at Cuisinart and quickly learned that Conair takes over. Conair did call me, but I missed the call and when I called back, a message to leave a message discouraged me. I finally found the Canadian email address and then wrote wondering if this is indeed a problem with this toaster.
To make a long story short, I was offered three choices of toasters and realized that Conair was willing to provide me with a new toaster. You would think that this would be the end of the story, but in order to receive the new toaster, I would have to cut the electrical cord of my toaster, send a photo of this. Not wanting to destroy this toaster before knowing that the replacement toaster Model no. CPT-520 C would be a reliable replacement, Conair offered to send me the new toaster to try out and then in order that the warranty could be transferred to the new toaster, I would have to cut the electrical cord of my toaster. This did not feel good because I can live with one sided toasted bread as I was willing to give away my toaster, but not disable it.
I came to the conclusion, like many reviewers of both these models, that is CPT-420C & CPT 520C, many wrote that it's best to avoid either of these models. Then why change one toaster for another? In the end, while Conair insisted that this is their policy and that there is no phone contact whatsoever, I decided to just keep my current toaster. I could understand that if I had the toaster for a couple of years and used it more often than once or twice a week, but after a couple of months...

I purchased this item approx 2.5 years ago and then it stopped working. I contacted Conair consumer and supplied them with my receipt as well as an explanation about my problem. They replaced my air fryer after pictures were supplied as per their request. It was a very positive and refreshing experience to deal with these people. The product has been great but this one glitch is a cause for concern but they covered it. They deserve the 5 stars I gave them.
I was gifted this dryer 23 years ago and just had to put it away for good dec 2021. I am amazed this dryer has last that long. So impressed. It's nice to see a product with impeccable longevity and performance. Most you think ah no way, I will have to buy a new one in a couple years. We'll, this one was 25.00 and 23 years, I am surely out can say it was an economical and proficient product.
I purchased the Conair Active Life Heating Pad (Model HP09C). Having a sore back the product looked ideal for me. The strap design was quite nice, however there is very little heat even on the high setting. The reason I ordered this was because it was advertised as having significant heat. Having the heat next to nothing, should not be advertised that way. It is very deceiving. Adding insult to injury I now found out the Company is not available for communication. I am now stuck with a product that does not deliver and I will be throwing it away.
My hair dryer sparked and caught on fire in my hand while using it. The cord blew apart from the dryer and burnt my bathroom a counter. Very scary and dangerous. Should be on the news considering how dangerous. Didn’t know there was a recall until I looked up the company to contact customer service. I sent an email but no response and called, but was left on hold for 15 minutes just trying to reach someone.
I purchased a Silverbird blow dryer. Only had it for a month and it blew up on me. Sparked fire damaged my left eye as well as the outlet in my home. Conair refuses to pay me a dime. My medical bills and time missed from work are over $3,000 not to include a permanent scar on my left eye and blurriness I am stuck with for life.
This hairdryer (Model #270TXT) was 5 ½ years old before it had quit working … Although it had a 4-year warranty, I’m giving it a very low-rating because it was hardly ever used - I kept it in my guest bathroom for guests and was rarely used. I called Conair’s Customer Service to see if they would repair it at no-charge as I felt due to hardly ever being used, it should have not become defective with such little usage. The service rep I spoke with had me on the line for almost half an hour when he finally said there was nothing they could offer due to the extended time past the 4-year warranty. I really felt due to the circumstances of it hardly ever being used, they could have at least offered to repair it, or compensated me with a discount for a new hair-dryer. If this is the type of quality I can expect from their products, I won’t be purchasing any more Conair products.
The blow dryer caught fire while in use. Pops, sparks, fire at the end of cord right at the plug. Plug is way too large for someone to pull it out improperly so that wasn’t the cause. At least they did something right. It caught my wall on fire. This happened in August 2019 and I’m still waiting for them to follow up on my request, calls, emails. I’m not sure why they don’t care. Horrible customer service.
I have had this hair dryer for about a year and when I was drying my hair the plug caught on fire and Electrocuted me!! I still feel tingling in my arm due to this. It even set my house fire alarm off!! My last Conair hair dryer blew up in tiny pieces everywhere!!! Do NOT buy this product!!!
