Burn hazard leads to recall of popular espresso machine

A manufacturer has issued a safety recall for some of its espresso machines. There have been some minor burn injuries associated with use of the machines. Only one model number of the SOWTECH espresso machine has been recalled. The glass carafe included with the espresso machine can break, causing burns or other injuries. Consumers should stop using the machines immediately to eliminate the risk of injury.

Recall specifics

The recalled espresso machines are manufactured by LoHi Tech and sold under the SOWTECH brand name. This mid-level machine, which was priced at around $60, was manufactured in China. The machines were sold from March 2017 through October 2020. They were available for purchase on the company’s website and other online retailers. Over 24,000 units of this model were sold.

All recalled machines have CM6811 as the model number. For reference, this number can be found on the front panel of the machine. Recalled machines are black, and they have a metal panel on the front that lists the brand’s name. Consumers are advised against using the machine. They can reach out to the California-based company through a phone call or email to request a replacement metal carafe.
