    Default Electric fire: "there is no risk of fire"

    http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=904272784
    "Cozzy Fire runs on electricity and is completely safe, because there is no risk of fire or intoxication"

    Really? How about a wiring fault?

    No intoxication? No fun there.

    Whats the fire risk of mounting that on a wall . 1800W is a lot of heat.

    There was plenty of fire risk when a cushion fell onto the front of my electric heater . Could have serious if I didnt see it.

    I'll lay odds that it is not certified for connection to the supply in NZ.

    Somebody will be under threat in the marketing team; they forgot to say "As Seen on TV" and "Ring Now!!"

    This entire style of marketing almost invariably indicates a product that is 52.12% Marketing, 45.0826% Markup, 2% Materials and labour, with the remainder spread between support, service and the tea fund.

    The "Zero fire risk" is easily achieved by ensuring that no units are ever turned on before reaching the customer, and using a new and highly researched nano-sized font with stealth ink to add "unless switched on." right after risk.
