Especially as they could just remove the parcel after taking the photo!


Never thought of that Pampy, has it really happened anywhere?

yea, I know it seems daft, but not having to be woken from afternoon nap to give a signature is a bonus! :D

We had a Dack and Blecker stick blender; in fact it´s still there; but it´s awfully slow. I think I´d probably go for a Cuisinart when I eventually get round to changing it.

Tuesday I made a batch of tomato sauce ready for ragus and such like.

Stick blender worked fine and less washing up than a Magimix! :clap For the reason we bought it, very happy.

Still I haven't mastered the skill of fixing the blending stick to the bowl, to try chopping onions and bread crumbs. Still use the Cuisinart for those things.

Having looked online at what I think you have Dennis ... it seems, like my Braun stick blender, that the stick arm comes away from the motor by pressing a lug on each side (just under the name ) ... then the whisk and/or chopping unit clips into place ???

Hahaha!! Yes they do - or did. We had a B&D mini oven, a stick blender (which we only used for blending sticks :gonzo :gonzo ) and a mini-food blender. The latter was terrible and began to break up after about two months.

Thanks Patsy for your help but didn't get around to doing more with the stick blender; only now caught up with KK’s use of his!

You will see from the photo that I did get the stick to join the bowl, but haven’t had an opportunity since to try it out.

According to the instructions, the attachment that fits to the bowl, locks by turning to the right, left to unlock. I realise the graphic is a two way arrow, but think the lock symbol should be on the right and vice versa, but it works, bingo. :thumbsup

Ah .,.. each make has a different way of connecting and also my Braun stick blender is quite old too ... but glad it gave you an idea ... I rave about my Bamix stick blender but the Braun sits on the other side of the kitchen - very convenient when I run out of space where the Bamix sits. Now realising this must appear that I have an enormous kitchen, to big to get from one side to the other ... it's the sockets ;)

Tell me about it!

BiL has just built himself a summer house, it's got more sockets than our kitchen! :twisted:

Glad to hear dennispc has trained his blender into submission.

Re lack of sockets that drives you dotty, I was delighted to have one of these fitted that converts a double to four sockets without needing to change any house wiring. I'd suggest the electrician does a supply and fit so there should be no quibble over quality and let him fit what he's happy with. Mine charged £40 all in IIRC.

They are fitted using the existing back box behind flush sockets, not surface mounted sockets.

You should still treat as two sockets for loading, so not for four washing machines or the like.

I've got to have a couple of sockets looked at by an electrician - both ordinary switched double sockets but one is completely dead and one the left hand point is dead
It seemed odd, but they are both about 10 years old and, critically, out of the same batch of sockets put in when some renovation was done so my guess is it's a slow burn manufacturing fault

This is very useful - only needs 1 wall socket to plug into and also has USB ports https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07 ... UTF8&psc=1
