I'll preface this by saying in the few days my wife has had her AirPods, they've fallen out a couple times (one time we had to use a "High Pitched Beeping for 20 Mins" video from YouTube to find them). She never seemed to have this issue with her EarPods though. So a day ago my lovely wife was roasting some brussel sprouts for dinner (yum!), when I heard her scream from the other room, I ran in to see what happened. While she was bending down towards the oven to take the sprouts out, without warning one of her AirPods had popped out, landed in the bottom of the oven, bounced once through a hole, and found it's final resting place underneath the bottom plate of the oven (in the place where the flame is firing). We turned off the oven immediately, I ran and got some tools, but it was too far out of reach. The final nail in the coffin was when I heard a faint pop, then smoke rising from the oven (probably from the battery). I waited for the oven to cool a bit, and had to partly dismantle my oven to reach the dead AirPod (pictured below). It mostly stayed in one piece, but is very roasted, a light golden brown, the color of a perfectly roasted marshmallow. After chatting with Apple Support, their only suggestion was to see if we can get a replacement under my homeowners insurance or credit card, since we don't have AppleCare+. They didn't know that a single AirPod replacement is available at this link: https://support.apple.com/iphone/repair/service/pricing So we will be exploring our replacement options. I was hoping some Apple engineers might want to examine an AirPod that went through a 400 degree roasting, and swap me for a free replacement. So just a PSA, use caution when wearing AirPods around a stove and flames. tl;dr: Lovely wife dropped an AirPod in the oven where it was unreachable without taking the oven apart. It got roasted. Apple Support won't replace it since it doesn't have AppleCare+.
