RE: The tariff classification of a hot air popcorn popper and an automatic breadmaker from Korea

Dear Mr. Learn:

In your letter dated September 22, 1992, on behalf of Regal Ware, Inc., you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise consists of a popcorn popper and an automatic breadmaker. Both are portable devices with electro-thermic functions. The Proctor-Silex Hot Air Popcorn Pumper popper has a fan and heater in a plastic body and a plastic chamber with a chute on top. The heated air causes the popcorn to pop out through the chute. The Regal Automatic Breadmaker, Model K6772, is a single appliance for kneading dough and baking bread. In our opinion, the principal use of this item is baking.

The applicable subheading for the popcorn popper will be 8516.79.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other electro-thermic appliances of a kind used for domestic purposes. The rate of duty will be 5.3 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for the breadmaker will be 8516.60.4070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for cooking stoves, ranges and ovens. The rate of duty will be free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
