... My Sous Vide circulator started overreading the temperature - 15 ~ 25C over - so it's not cooking properly. So ... this close to Christmas, I order a new one - and realize it's coming from Germany, where they use Euro plugs instead of UK ones.
Not a problem - to keep the warranty I order a plug converter.
Then I contact the manufacturer that I bought the original from 21 months ago and ask if there is any way to fix it.
They reply that's it's under warranty and they are sending a replacement! OMG | :OMG:
Two year warranty I didn't know about ... Big Grin | :-D

So the German one arrives yesterday, but the adapter doesn't because of "real world events beyond the courier's control".
Still not a problem.
Adapter arrives today, in a battered box and courier apologizes profusely for the late delivery, explaining the original van it was on has an accident.

Open the box. A pair of UK Size 8 jeans. Sigh | :sigh:

Looks like when the accident happened everything got spilled and random objects were stuffed into random boxes and I got the booty prize. Laugh | :laugh:

So now I organise a return, and re-order - but this has "Mission Failed" written all over it ... today isn't going well, perhaps I should just go back to bed?
