Stick Blender

I have a mini food processor called 'little oskar' . it would be around 15+ years old & It's never missed a beat & such a strong little machine which gets used a heap. Reliable brand, I reckon.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I will take them on board when looking.

Love my breville, it comes with a mini whiz and whisk which some part of it gets used most days now my hands are all twisted.

My Russell Hobbs one isn't good. It comes to bits too easily and it couldn't cope with chopping cashews for bliss balls. The chopper doesn't work now which is annoying as I liked it for making hummus.

Positive vote for the breville. use it more often than my f/processor. has whisk, mini processor also.

I've had a Kambrook one for the last 5 years and I can't fault it! It comes with a small mixing bowl + a blender cup.
If I wanted something a bit more powerful, then I'd get a Bamix.

We have had a bamix for quite some time, and a kenwood with a lot of attachments that even make it into a small (not tiny) food processor. Both do what they are supposed to very well, BUT . if I was looking for a plain simple stick mixer again I would go for a kambrook or similar. You can replace them half a dozen or more times for the price of a bamix

This. Also it gives you an opportunity to discover if it is going to be just another appliance cluttering up valuable kitchen storage space. I have one and hardly ever use it anymore. I find my whisk and masher do most jobs just as effectively. I probably only use it for pumpkin soup and quick hollandaise sauce now so I'm glad I only bought a cheaper one.

Don't be sad on my account!

buzzy110, Jan 1, 4:37am
I agree.

wasala, Jan 1, 4:55am
Well, you sort of have to, don't you!

Happy New Year to you both.

I've been very happy with Breville. My first Breville finally gave up after about 8 years of very heavy use, I replaced it with an updated model and it's powerful and reliable. I use the mini-processor that comes with it a lot too.

My wand's Electrolux and it's OK but nothing has ever worked as well as the Oskar we got for a wedding present. I really wish I'd kept it as it was still going - just old, and the Kenwood processer we have now is useless. It can't even handle crumbling gingernut biscuits for a cheesecake base!
