    I didn't think there was that much difference between hand/stick blenders, but I think I've been proved wrong.

    I had an existing blender when I started the diet (a Woolies one, only a couple of years old) so I used this to do my blending. Poor old blender - it was too much for it and an important plastic bit snapped off and made the blender useless, so I had to go and find another one.

    I ended up with a Micromark one (Micromark MMK9897) that I got off eBay for about a tenner, and it's great. My porridge was lovely before, but now it's transformed - it's even more smooth and creamy than before! You wouldn't think that there could be such a difference between two blenders which look pretty much alike - but there is.

    All I would say is - it's worth shopping around! And the most expensive isn't necessarily the best for your needs either.

    I must be going mad-when I first read your post I thought that you meant a 'right hand' blender-and I wondered how the hell you'd notice the difference between a right hand one and a left hand one!:doh: :D
