Re: Blenders?Hi Omah that's a super find but it does have shocking reviews! Lots say that it's nowhere as robust as the old model. It's a pity as I'd have snapped it up.
Re: Blenders?It is the way of the world but it's shocking and frightening how fast this is has changed. In a way it's a great opportunity for new entrants, but who wants to enter when the economic and business environment is so hostile and the investment upfront costs so high?
Re: Blenders?I won a blender as 3rd prize in the War Veterans Lottery in about 1976, It sat unused in my cupboard until I threw it in the bin about 5 years ago.
Re: Blenders?I seldom use my blender. I use my Mini Whizz (A small scale food processor which still does just about everything a larger one does) all the time, an electric citrus juicer (They are easy to get here- why not there?) a fruit juicer for apples, carrots, pears etc. I find blenders are a hassle. Also I try not to buy cheap Chinese stuff. It's hard to find things that aren't made in China but it's worth the search. I'd rather pay more for something of real quality. That goes for absolutely everything.
Re: Blenders?I have a good working Moulinex that dates back at least 45yrs. It was bought to help mix our last daughter's milk formula which was National Dried and a pig to mix thoroughly by hand. It has a slight leak again from the spindle so I'll be repacking the gland again sometime soon. I can't remember the price but my wife seems to think it was under a fiver, so money well spent
Re: Blenders?I use a Magic Bullet from Argos, It does a good job, I'm heavily into fruit and green smoothies and I wouldn't be without mine. Nutribullets are good too but more expensive.
