    I've noticed a lot of people swear by 'em and I'm tempted to try coz I feel like I'm losing half of my packs getting stuck in my blender stick-thing. The only one I've spotted online is the 'Coffee Magic' one?
    I know Leah said she got hers from EBay but I think someone said they'd got one from a pound-saver shop and I wondered which one? I can't find the post now and delivery (ergo EBay or Amazon) isn't a convenient option for me here.
    So, has anyone seen these or similar in shops and, if so, where?
    Many thanks in advance
    :thankyou:

    Hi Claire

    I love my coffee magic mug and look everywhere I go (and I travel to over 40 town centres some weeks) in case I can buy one from the high street anywhere, but not had any luck yet.

    I now have 4 - all from ebay, although my first one is past it's best and needs binning.

    I will keep my eyes open though and let you know what I come accross on my travels.

    I must be doing something wrong with mine, because I used it and it just got clogged up with lumps of powder :sigh:. Haven't tried it again since. Amber34 - any tips on where I'm going wrong would be well received, how do you use yours?

    thanks

    Thank you guys!
    Thanks Leah - the problem is actually the delivery aspect coz I'm out at work and if I miss delivery all the depots seem to be miles away and there doesn't even seem to be a post office near enough to where I work at the moment to arrange collection from there.
    Hopefully someone will spot something (thanks Amber) and if not I can do it online when I get home in a couple of weeks.

    I think they are completely useless. I really don't understand how anyone manages to get them to get rid of the lumps with them. When I try (holding it at all different angles, with more and less water) the lumps just move around and bounce out of the whisky thing. I would say, don't waste your money. I would glady send you the one I bought free of charge - which shows how much I think it was a waste of money but you are welcome to try mine.

    if you are looking for something that you can use at home then I HIGHLY recommend the kenwood frothie maker. It perfectly blends and it makes them cold or hot (it heats the water in very little time) i just wish they could create a smaller battery powered version

    gotta be honest
    i got a coffee magic mug off ebay and loved it - - - for two days - - then teh swirly wheely whizzer thing fell off AND when i tried to unscrew the mug into two halves so i could wash the non mechanical part - the actual mug bit cracked

    since then ive managed with an aerolatte and a fork

    but i wont judge - perhaps i got a faulty one!

    I usually put just enough cold water in to cover the whisk, a little buit of hot then add my sachet. Once that is smooth, I add the rest of the hot water, whisking all the time. I have never tried to make a cold shake in them though and always use my smoothie maker for cold ones so I can add ice - I wonder if that is what is different?

    I must admit I received one from ebay that didn't work properly, but I dropped him a quick email and had a new one within a few days and didn't have to return the faulty one. Basically, they are a cheapo, non-quality product that have potential to fall apart very quickly, but they cause a lot less fuss and washing up than using my smoothie maker or even stick blender.

    I had lumps at the beginning but i tried various ways of mixing.

    I put the right amount of water in the cup, and press the whisk button. I then add the sachet into the "whirlpool" bit by bit and voila - No lumps.
    Been using it for months now, hot or cold!

    And with washing, mine has been accidentaly submerged a few times and still works brilliantly.

    It keeps getting scratched cos i keep my engagement ring on while washing dishes so the diamond has cut a few nice big scratches.
    I tend to fill it to the brim with hot water and washing up liquid and whizz!!! Hahaha brilliant xxxx

    That's exactly what I did - but I ended up with a lumpy mess! I'll give it another go before I consign it to the bin!
