Automatic electric toasters, 1956 In our tests of 22 models, three that are otherwise high in overall quality also present a serious shock hazard. We rate them Not Acceptable.

Candy pellets, 1973 For a nickel, a kid who buys Orbits with Blower gets a packet of tiny, hard candy pellets and a fairly large-bore plastic straw. It's dangerous to other kids when used like a pea shooter--and dangerous to a kid who might easily inhale the pellets.

Steam irons, 1951 During tests to measure the life of steam irons, a Silex iron is judged Not Acceptable. The thermostat failed to function, and the soleplate melted in two different test samples.

Carpet sweepers, 1959 Most are relatively easy to empty: Spread newspapers on the floor, tip up the sweeper with one hand, and reach down with the other hand to pull on a metal tab. Empty the sweeper each time before you store it, we add, or whenever it gets too full.
