Salton Inc. - Maker of Melitta in Trouble?

sallton_a.jpgCould the maker of the Melitta Single Serve Coffee maker be in trouble? Will this pave the way for Keurig and Senseo?

"Stock in Lake Forest-based Salton Inc., distributor of the popular George Foreman grill and Westinghouse home appliances, plummeted 50 percent after the company said lagging sales will force it to restructure its U.S. operations and reduce marketing costs.

Salton has long depended on the Foreman grill, whose sales have dropped in the United States as the product ages, while overseas they've grown. The company recently added new product lines, including a single-serve coffee maker and a cordless vacuum. It also markets other home appliance, lighting, personal care and wellness products under the Westinghouse, Toastmaster, Melitta and Stiffel brands.

Update: Salton replacement parts and owners manuals can be ordered at 800-233-9054 or by emailing

1. I have a Salton Hotray Model H 928-A, Series S, and I need a new cord. 220v. preferred, but 120v. is fine. I live in the Philippines and would like to order with my credit card and have the cord sent to New York City, where my friend will pick it up and bring it back. Please advise.

2. I want a Melitta cone, preferably in plastic, for #4 filter papers. Same story - I will have it sent to NY, where my friend will pick it up.

He is leaving for NY very soon, and so I would appreciate a prompt response from you. I will be glad to phone you with my credit card number (I don not give this out over e-mail) and the name and address of the recipient in NYC. Thank you very much.

I need instructions for Maxim Expres 120-S. It worked fine when I bought it new a number of years ago but I don't know how to get steam through the pipe (rod). I ran clear water through and there is no sediment. Water flows quickly through coffee part but nothing in the rod. If I put in more than 2 cups, it gushes through the coffee part.

reply to newsview: gee, isn't it wonderful that you are so frakking smart that you gave us all a slap upside the head about how to search for manuals.... how did we ever live without you!? Oh wait, I bet we've all already tried those routes of search various manual website and the manufacturer websites and probably have already even talked live to some customer service people. If anyone has a manual for any of the ones we are all looking for, please post a current link. I'm looking for a Salton EX-20 manual. Thanks all. evt

I need A instruction manual for A Melitta Model Mex1B is there any way to obtain one on line ?

Posted by: Aaron George at February 9, 2010 3:37 PM

For those looking for product use and care instructions: If you don't have the name and the model number already, look on the bottom of your unit. Here are your choices: 1) VISIT THE MANUFACTURER WEBSITE and look at their "support" information, 2) After doing a search for the company website, go to the "contact us" link and call or email the company directly with your question regarding the owner's manual, 3) Try putting the model number, name and the words "PDF" and "manual" into a search engine. If nobody has a download of the manual available online, it won't show up in the search results. If it does show up it will be a PDF that you can download or view in your web browser and print. In this way, you don't have to post questions on a site that doesn't have anyone here to answer you except other people looking for the same info.

I received a Melitta "hot pot" model MEK 17 W as a gift. It is made by Salton and it shows that it draws 1500 watts of electricity. It has blown two 15 amp delayed fuses on my electric range. I called Salton, on Melittas instructions, and their "rep" says that since it does not draw more than 15 amps on its own the unit is safe by US standard. I said that had I know, understood that 1500 watts cinverts to 12.5 to 13.6 amps, I would not have wanted this unit. It was used to heat tea water for my wife and I but now becomes a peice of electronic junk. I told the Salton rep that it should be labeled with amperage used instead of wattage and that there should be a warning label that it may need a dedicated 15 amp line just like my microwave did when I purchased it!
