    I love my magic bullet blender for washing (well...just put it in the dishwasher. With my stick one, I just use to add hot water and washingup liquid, and blend:eek:

    I got a frothie maker, but only used it a couple of times. Bloomin nightmare. So fiddly for just one drink.

    Have you noticed if you don't rinse your blender jug straight away the left over shake sets to the hardest substance known to man? I share your pain :D

    I've got both too... and, I must confess, there have been times when I have put on the dishwasher half full just so that I wouldn't have to wash them up myself!!! :eek:

    It's not just the washing of the blender that's getting annoying, it's only day 16 and i'm already sick of the sight of the thing.

    I love it though because it makes my shakes delicious. Small price to pay I say.

    I have to confess I have a dishwasher too. But find it a right bind to clean it if I need to use the blender before the dishwasher is full.

    Gosh that must be so annoying!! Deffinately try and get there first. And put the powder in first so that it leaves more to clean at the bottom just to teach him a lesson :) Or dont clean it after you use it, so when he needs to use it again he will get annoyed that he has to clean it and may realise the benefits of cleaning it straight after use!

    Do you know what i hate? Making the frigging milkshakes. God its such a pain in the ass! Taking the fibre tables, measuring out the water, making sure you pour all the milkshake powder out of the sachets, putting the lid on the blender, scrapping off lumps after blending. Then the hastle of washing the damn blender!! I have really started to take the milkshakes later and later as its such a mision to have it!

    it IS a mission.

    Note to important CD people - sort out the blender situation. Free dishwasher with first months worth or sachets (or free man willing to clean)

    Oi, and bev - no more plates/dishes? I drink my shakes from a glass - equally a pain to clean!!
