Bamix Classic Hand Blender Black 125.160 5 "Built to last" Mrs Hughes 02 January 2019 My mother bought one of these machines from the ideal home exhibition over 50 years ago, I bought one for myself and my daughter in law's, as I can't rate them highly enough. Make no fat cream from skimmed milk, one step mayonnaise, whip cream in seconds. You do need a tall container when using it. Washing up couldn't be easier as long as you don't put it down and run it under the tap straight away. Couldn't make our Xmas pat'e without it. I do have a hand mixer but my bamix is on the counter all the time and I use it everyday, if you like frothy coffee, it's fantastic.
