Exploding frying pans


Last year there was a recall of exploding frying pans. For some reason I found this funny.

"The pans can explode or separate when preheated, used on high heat or used for frying," the safety commission said in a statement.

It explodes when you fry something in it.

Apparently "frying stuff" was not in the test plan for the frying pans.

  1. Maybe it were just Whack-Your-Husband(tm) pans and they failed to mention that on the wrapping.

  2. this is hysterical; that link and that quote are going directly into my presentation on writing better use cases…

  3. Aarrgghh says:

    Sounds like their QA department has been taking lessons from ours.

  4. Microsoft QA (not really) says:

    I don’t get it – what’s wrong with that? The developers assured me that it would be fixed in the next release.

  5. ROFLMAO…

    This is why they need to do Unit Testing, actually testing the unit in a real life situation;-)

  6. Follow the link to The Old New Thing. This says it all.

  7. Candles can create a fire hazard, safety commission concludes.

  8. Amazing. Just Amazing… Not to be outdone by frying pans that explode when you use them for frying, Nature’s Finest Candles has issued a product recall [pdf] because the candles catch fire when you light them. This is not…
