    Yep dont ever buy those brands because they are cheap & will kill you??!!

    (not forgetting Bosch, Neff & Seimens with their 500.000 killing machines out there ---- YES that is half a million machines that might burst into flames tomorrow)

    But this has to be the best...

    No one buy Daimler & Mercedes cars because they bust into flames too.

    75000 apparently bbc.co.uk/new…504

    So... Buying the expensive brands does not excuse you from burning to death or your house & garage ending up as ash.

    I have no idea. But if it did burst into flames whilst I was driving my Daimler then I hope my £60 retro pumas would be covered

    Your seemingly snooty comments are misguided, cheap stuff is not more likely to be faulty, they are all meant to follow the same rules on safety and many electronics at least come from the same factories and use the same components.

    Cheaper things sell in larger numbers, Beko is the biggest selling brand for white goods so when they have a recall or fears over a product it sounds awful because it affects thousands, if a more expensive brand has a recall it sounds better because the numbers are less, even if more product lines are affected.

    Also I'd imagine there's less chance of a faulty product remaining in the home of someone with money, if we look at Indecit or whatever its spelling is, they told people to use their tumble dryers and they'd get round to replacing them, poor people would do that, rich people have the money to splash so would be more likely to just be on the safe side and buy a new one, put the faulty one into storage until its replaced.

    Also richer people are more aware, the reporting of faults in this country is crap, unless you have internet and specifically hunt your unlikely to find it and we have two generations now who wouldn't be in the loop, the elderly who don't have internet and the young who only use internet on their phones and have a limited amount of things they do, i.e social media, shopping and app games.

    ​do you know any poor people without access to the internet but who own white goods?
    (both rich old and poor old people are similarly fearful or enthusiastic about the internet)
