    I have a Braun paid around a tenner from Asda, you could get the £5 ones that all the superstores sell but we batter them that much worth paying a bit more !!

    LOL! I became obsessed with stick blenders! I hate the ones that I bought as they sound like a drill, which is a bit embarrassing, especially in work! The best one I got was a Moulinex mixer with three attachments - it's a stick blender and I use the whisk attachment usually - think it has an attachment for lattes too. Anyway, it's rechargeable so has no lead on it. I'm not sure if you can get it nationally, but my mum bought it for me from B&N store in Southport for about £7!!

    The cheaper ones definitely sound like a jumbo jet they are that loud, and they also smell of burning when you use them in my experience. Definitely worth buying a more expensive one, as they are used a lot!

    I bought a cheap one............and I agree with Poppysparkle they are rather loud.
    The best one I ever had was a Braun...........I had it for years but sadly it died on me.

    I too use the Braun one (have 4 of them in fact). The cheaper ones were definately too loud and packed up far to easily :(
