• Dishwasher with German name made in China. Insists on 2hr20min wash. Must do fancy manipulation to get 2hr05min wash. Often wash dishes by hand, simpler.

• Toaster with French name made in China. When bread too thick, or for no reason, goes nuts, flashes lights, must be unplugged to reboot. Often eat bread untoasted, simpler.
