Love my air fryer! Use it 3 or 4 times a week and can pretty much cook anything in it. Thankfully, it’s not this brand…
Another question would be, if we saw this brand in a home during an inspection sitting on a counter, do we note it even though it it’s out of the SOP? I probably would for seller/LA info for information/potential hazard.
I don’t do recalls for plug in appliances. Hell there’d be no end to it. How about all that recalled baby furniture. . . it just goes on and on! Besides the report is for the BUYER. The seller is going to take all that portable crap with him.
Was only matter of time, the air fryers are all the rage nowadays.
To each their own Bob. If I see one during an inspection, I probably wouldn’t put in the report for my “buyer” client, but would mention it to the LA or seller. Who knows, you could be thanked or referred for the tip later down the road.
And on a side note, if you observed a space heater in a house that was recalled because of potential fire hazards, would you just pass on it because the “portable” crap will be taken with them? I know it’s out of SOP, but if you have knowledge of it, should you mention it or ignore it?
Honestly, even if I saw one on the counter on Monday I wouldn’t remember what brand was recalled or what model numbers. That goes with most recalled stuff. That is one area I am going to stick tight to the SOP on. It’s just too much to keep track of.
I was blessed with a photographic memory. Helps out in some occasions…
If I remembered seeing a recall on something, I see no harm in mentioning it verbally, if someone was present.
This has nothing to do with the air fryer recall. A week or so ago, I was standing behind a guy at Robin’s Donuts, waiting to get a coffee, and I noticed he was wearing an Helly Hansen brand hoody. I remembered the recall I had read about in the news. I let him know about it. He thanked me, and said he would check about it.
Is that why you take so many selfies? Its a wonder that camera still works.
“Why you lookin’ at my hoodie?”
Lol!! I don;t have a clue how to take a “selfie”…Please educate me…
I was thinking the post might help us out personally. I am sure some of us have air fryers. Thanks JR.
It does us personally and I appreciate the info. If I see one sitting on a counter top of a home I inspect, I’ll pass on the heads up to who’s using it. Over the SOP, yes, the least I can do to help notify.
We get a little caught up in the “exceeds the SoP stuff”. And certainly some inspectors get too far out over their ski’s. But if the inspector understands 1. When they are exceeding the SoP. 2. They know they are on an island when they do. 3. The fully understand the consequences…Then I think they will be fine.
Make sure you get the model number right. There are 21 different models recalled and they are not in any kind of sequence. Who knows how many models are OK.
The only recalled item I’ve ever called out in a report was the Square D AFCI breakers,
I did mention the recalled garage door opener to a client a couple weeks ago that ha one that looked like the one that was recently recalled, but I wasn’t 100% certain if it was the actual recalled model or not.
As far as a portable appliances are concerned, unless I own one, like Ryan, I’ll forget the brand name, model numbers etc. before I see one.
But good info just same for us, or for those of us that know someone who might have one.
