CORNINGWARE 9 CUP PERCOLATOR RECALL

Hi, I know that the cornflower blue non electric coffee pot percolator was recalled in the 70's. Because of this, is it not allowable to list this item? Thank you for your help.

No, Ebay won't let you list them. And it's all the tall non electric percolators no matter the design.. It's because of how the handle is glued on. The glue will wear out and the hot pot will fall from the handle.

I tried to list a coffee pot and it got pulled. Mine even had the screws to hold the handle on, and they said no.

We had one of the Corning electric percolators and used it for years.

We heard about a recall notice from Corning for the coffee pot, and I contacted them. They sent a cardboard box (with prepaid mailing), and you were supposed to send them a part (I don't remember which one) from the percolator (which rendered the percolator inoperative).

As a replacement, Corning offered a catalog that offered Corning items at a "special price".

Well, it turned out that you could buy the same Corning items at local stores for cheaper prices than their "special prices".

So, in essence, Corning was offering less than nothing in return for the recalled coffee pots.

We kept our coffee pot and used it for years. We checked the handle frequently, but it never came loose. On one of our several moves, the electric percolator assembly disappeared, and we gave the pot to someone else who also rejected the corning "special prices" offer.

Yes, the other posters are correct - you cannot sell the coffee pots on eBay.

Pyrex you can sell, it's the Corning coffee pots you can't.

The Pyrex ones have screws holding the handle on. The Corning ones without the screws on handles are the ones that were recalled and are banned from Ebay.

I had a Corning coffee pot, one of the first ones made with the screws and they stopped my auction. The reply was that they ban all the Corning pots. It doesn't make sense, but what can you do? You will see them here though, by people who don't know and unless they are caught or reported, they will sell. But I wouldn't want to take that chance now.

Strange, because I see them all the time at the local Flea Markets.

Just one of many items that should not be sold that can be found at local flea markets.

I contacted Corning concerning this 9 cup Cornflower pot. This is the response I got..........

Dear Consumer,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us with your concerns. The pot in question that you sent us a photo of with details is NOT part of the recall. This pot is one the the replacement pots that we gave to our consumers who had the older recalled pots. This pot IS safe to use.

If you have any future questions, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for being a Corning Customer.
The Corning Team

Since I received this email, I have listed AND SOLD SEVERAL of these pots on ebay, yet my most recent listing WAS cancelled. I sent a copy of the email to ebay showing them this IS NOT a recalled pot and they did not want to hear what Corning had to say. You can still go to stores in my local town and PURCHASE these pots with NO problem, yet ebay DOES NOT allow them to be listed

Interesting reply you got from Corning -"This pot is one the the replacement pots that we gave to our consumers who had the older recalled pots.

I can attest to the fact that no such pots were offered as replacements when the recall occurred. I had several back and forth correspondence letters with Corning about that recall, and all that was offered was a discount book from which you could purchase items (at a higher cost than I could get the same items for locally).

Just for the 9 cup? why not the 6 cup? Guess I too learned the hard way, listed one today and they pulled it within 10 miniutes.


Said I can sell the inside parts, just not the ceremic pot, so guess that is what I will do.

Sell it locally - at a garage sale or on Craigslist.

There are currently 159 of these pots offered for sale on eBay, and from looking at the photos and Corning's recall photos, only 3 of them fell into the recall. Mine got booted and it was not one of the recalled ones

Would it be possible to post a link which would show a picture of this safe pot?

Sellers of the recalled Corningware percolators are just skating around the legalities of selling them.



Almost all the listings that actually have the pot and all parts, just say Corningware coffe pot (or percolator) parts, and list that all parts are included.



It would sort of be the same as if a seller sold any other recalled item (e.g. a child's toy that could be disassembled) by saying that their listing was just for the parts for the toy, and all parts were included.



Usually, such listings are pulled because someone reported the listing, not because eBay actively pursued such listings for recalled items.

Well I just had my auction for a 4 cup coffee pot pulled and the 4 cup ones were never in the recall.  The pots that were recalled were only the ones with the metal spouts.  They never even made 4 cuppers with metal spouts.  I called to complain but they said it is easier to just ban them all than to go through all the listings.  Why not just ban the ones with metal spouts?  What the heck?  The stinkin thing was sold and this was the last day.............I am ticked......
