If You Bought, Received or Acquired a KitchenAid Brand Stand Mixer Marketed With A Horsepower Designation, You May Be Entitled to Benefits From The KitchenAid Class Action Lawsuit Settlement.
Whirlpool Corporation has reportedly agreed to a proposed settlement of a consumer class action lawsuit against it in the 11th Judicial Circuit Court in Miami-Dade Florida (captioned as Stuart Bornstein v. Whirlpool Corporation, Case No. 12-1532 CA 42) alleging, among other things, that Whirlpool over-stated the horsepower of certain 6-qt., 7-qt., and 8-qt. KitchenAid -brand stand mixers manufactured by Whirlpool and marketed with a horsepower designation, purportedly in violation of consumer protection statutes and in breach of express warranty, according to the KitchenAid stand mixer horsepower class action settlement notice.
Who Is Included In The KitchenAid Class Action Settlement?
The KitchenAid mixer settlement class reportedly includes, unless otherwise excluded, all persons in the United States and its territories who before June 18, 2014 either (1) purchased a Mixer or (2) received a Mixer as a gift or (3) acquired possession of a Mixer through other lawful means.
What Settlement Benefits Does The KitchenAid Class Action Settlement Provide?
The KitchenAid stand mixer class action settlement reportedly provides, among other things, that Whirlpool will change its records to extend the written warranty two years for all covered KitchenAid mixers and will provide on its website and in marketing materials that reference horsepower the following statement:
“Motor horsepower for our mixer motors was measured using a dynamometer, a machine laboratories routinely use to measure the mechanical power of motors. Our 1.3 horsepower (HP) motor reference reflects the horsepower rating of the motor itself and not the mixer’s horsepower output to the mixer bowl. This robust motor, the backbone of our new mixer, delivers .44 HP to the bowl enabling your mixer to deliver consistent power to small and large loads with less heat build-up; resulting in years of dependable mixing. When combined with and guided by our new advanced motor control board, this is our longest lasting and most efficient motor yet. Simply put, our new, highly efficient, special purpose motor delivers the power you need when you need it.”
