    This may not be the best place to put this...but does anyone know of a product that will mix my shakes and soups to perfection, wont annoy me and doesnt sound like a maching gun going off??? Oh, not too expensive either....

    I'll second that! I've got a Genie and it's ace!! :)

    I bought mine online but I've just checked TJ Hughes and it looks like they're out of stock.

    I found an online outlet (studio 24) but it's £24.95 - still a bargain IMO!

    Girlies, thanks sooooo much for the recommendation!!! My genie finally arrived today....after like, how many weeks?!

    Anyway, sw this humongous box and thought 'oh no, wat have I bought'. Took all the bits out, and used it this evening....its the dogs b*llox!!! I love it, so easy to use, so easy to clean....and without all the bits its quite small too so I will be able to bring it to Dublin with me without too much hassle (my car is probably going to sink the boat with the aount of stuff that will be in it!!)

    Anyway, just wanted to say thanx!!!

    I got a genie. Great for doing my breakfast smoothies. Also good for the shakes, but I found it made the soups too frothy.

    When I was on CD, I mainly used one of those braun hand held thingies. It was perfect, and easy to clean too.

    You can get cheaper ones that are similar.

    Well I couldnt be dealing with the loudness of my blender!! Especially considering I usually make a shake after mini me has goe to bed and do be afraid of it wakening her up!!! Did soup in my genie earlier and it was perfect, no froth...I was a bit confuzzled by it at one point, but its ace!!
