Unit's Countdown Timer Creates a fire hazard

Pros:Looks good. Cooks well when the timer is functional.

Cons:Dangerous failure of countdown timer circuitry.
No drawer that collects crumbs.  Difficult to clean.

Like many of the other reviewers I was impressed with the Krups name from coffeemaker fame.  The Krups Model FBC213 is impressively designed, looks rugged and modernistic.  Unfortunately the electronic timer creates a fire hazard.  The unit worked well for over a year and then as other reviewers have detailed, the timer began to malfunction.  When set to toast or bake, the timer counts down until 10 seconds before it is supposed to shut the unit off and then loses it's numerical display which is replaced by what I would characterize as "Chinese Letters".  The unit continues on full power until it is unplugged.  After reading of other's less than satisfying experience with Krups consumer service , ie multiple returns of the product with the same defect my unit exhibits without returning a durable and fully functioning appliance, I am now in the market for a replacement.  Please do not purchase this unit.  It's an expensive, dangerous piece of  junk.
