    Just went to make a milkshake and the blade in my blender isn't spining around but I can hear the motor still going. I am so annoyed I could scream!

    I've been off SS for a month due to personal reasons and met my new CDC on Thursday (she lives so much closer and doesn't seem to rush me in and out of our appointment) ready to start SSing again and lo and behold my blender decides to give up on me. Whats really annoyed me is that it's an Antony Worral Thompson intelligent blender made by brevile and I literally bought it the day I started CD in April, and it cost me £40! I'm sure it has a warranty but I have no idea where I've put the receipt so it looks as though I'm going to have to fork out for a new one.

    This thing has been a life saver because it makes my shakes so frothy. I used my mums handblender when I went to visit and the shakes weren't half as nice.

    Does anyone here use a blender? I'm looking for a cheaper one, but one that is still meant for ice crushing (one that doesn't break after 3 months would be a bonus too!). Any recommendations?

    hand blenders in asda less than £5, keep the receipt handy as they exchange them no questions asked when they break, i'm on my 3rd one and yes they crush ice.

    I have a Sainsburys blender, the brushed steel effect one and it's pretty good, I have had a replacment but thats because DH tried washing the jug by pouring boiled water over the glass. (we were in our caravan hence the boiled water) Sainsburys were excellent and gave us another no questions asked. and it does crush ice too, £19.99 I think.

    If you bought it was a debit or credit card the store will be able to trace the transaction so you could get it replaced.
    I had to do this in Currys and they got the transaction details and refunded me.
