    Another question,

    Kenwood Frothie Maker, do you guys still use yours?? Do they still blow your electrics?? I'm thinking on investing in one, would love to have hot chocolate over the winter, would also make soup easier for mum and dad if they do start CD.
    Thanks
    Mel:D :D :D

    Must admit the only blender I use is a cheapie hand blender from Asda (cost £4.97). Does the job, and if something goes wrong (which so far it hasn't) seriously cheap to replace! ;)

    Thanks Pea, I have one just don't use it, suppose I could give it a go using hot water rather than cold, hmm looks like some experiments are in order

    Same here - I used a stick blender (like a braun Bar mix, but cheaper), much easier than anything else and simple to clean.

    Hiya Mel

    I do have a Frothie Maker but have now passed it on to someone else as I bought a FANTASTIC Genie Blender from T J Hughes for £20 and it really is marvellous.....you can order online and it only took a day or two to arrive! It is just soooo fantastic as it makes just about everything!

    I'm not doing CD at the moment doing Slimfast. But I have to swear by the Hinari Genie! have a frothy maker as well but I find that hard to clean. Genie is fab and you drink straight from the cup you mixed it in! and it comes with loads extras too. Oh and yes you can stick the cups in the microwave! So I mix my pack with water...add a few sweetners and microwave for 1 minute to get the most amazing frothy hot choc etc...Soups not bad in there either! As for the mousse and jelly! OMG what more can I say! And they are on offer at T J HUGhes online and shops at only £20.00! Click on the link....

    re blenders

    I have a Bullet you see them on sell a vision it comes with two whissy lids and many differrent shaped cups which you sit on the base and bobs your uncle . I think it has been invaluable. Its advertised at £29.99 on tv but i got it on cash carry for £14 its does all sort of weird and wonderfull stuff. I know its a bit pricy

    Mines called a Rocket, but it's the same as the bullet and genie - cost me £16.99 in Sainsburys. It's brilliant, only takes seconds and is very easy to clean :D

    I have both the Rocket (JML version) & the Frothy Maker! I use my Rocket for cold shakes & mousses & the FM for hot soups & hot shakes.... they are both fab in their own way, FM does make perfect soups though & always the perfect temp.

    My FM has never tripped the power switch... maybe it's a newer version, I don't have it for long.
