Sometimes though you have to take a chance. I bought my Breadman breadmachine in the States. That was a brand not available in Canada and I've never had a problem with it. I would have been out of luck I guess if it had malfunctioned. I'm fortunate to live right on the US border though. The Cuisinart is a bit more costly so I don't think I would take a chance on it. Just for your info I sent an e-mail to Tweed & Hickory to see if they were going to carry it soon. Haven't heard back from them yet.
