Cuisinart PRC 12 Cracked Base?
I have been very happy with my Cuisinart percolator unitl the base cracked for no apparent reason. It may have been set down too hard for the very thin plastic base. It is more fragile than an egg shell and about as thin!! I figured the brand would be a long lasting product but I have used it daily for only about six months. The website offers no replacement for that part and it is held together with a brad not a screw that would allow for replacement of the broken base. Surely they never anticipated that part breaking but with it made with such flimsly plastic I am sure I am not alone with this problem!!
