    Bamix. Very, very happy with it...it is considered one of the best!!
    And if I have to buy another, would still buy that one.

    We have a Braun and its over 10 years old gets used about twice a week
    for REALLY heavy stuff such as pumpkins Mango and Ice Lupins Chick peas


    We picked up some no name cheapies at Bunnings at $7.00 each in a bin
    so bought 4 (thinking they would fail over time)

    3 still in packaging but the cheap one tends to get very hot and
    tired compared to the Braun when doing the heavy work .

    On lighter stuff No problem Made in Thailand sticker on the el cheapo
    things .

    Bamix is pretty good and the commercial kitchens I go into seem to
    favour them but strewth they are expensive !

    Very much so.

    It was a gift...can't afford to replace...but if I had to and could, I'd get
    the same thing.

    It doesn't say. It was inexpensive so it's probably a Hamilton Beach or
    Rival or something like that.

    > b. happy with it?


    The button fell off and it doesn't fit right but it still works, so I
    guess I got what I paid for

    > c. if had to buy another, what brand?


    Probably Cuisinart. I've been very happy with their stuff over the years.

    I have a Braun I'm happy with, but I read a lot of reviews before buying
    for my daughter and got her a KitchenAid, I believe.

    Braun, my second. Very happy. First one
    was broken in an accident when a friend was
    hired to clean my house, not due to any fault
    of Braun.

    Do not buy Rival. I had one, and I could smell
    ozone and see flashes of light from contact
    arcing coming from the motor. Any machine which
    does that will have a very short lifetime.
    I returned it.

    I love my KitchenAid, but I wish it had a stand. It was about $50 at
    Target when I bought it.

    i bought a hamilton-beach (for about twenty bucks) on the strength of a
    review here:

    <http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/19/AR2008021900696.html>

    ....which has a couple recommendations.

    it's not in constant use, but it seems to do what i ask of it with no
    problems. i like it.

    Braun (made in Spain) with interchangeable heads. I use the power whisk
    head at least as often as the regular blender head.

    I've used a Braun for a while quite successfully. The attachments are
    useful too and I find I use the food processor one quite a bit. So much
    so that I am going to look for a dedicated small processor even if I
    have a 2-cup Cuisinart.

    I have a Braun Multi-Mix that's the bomb. Unfortunately, it doesn't
    seem to be available any more. It was a multi-use thing -- mixer,
    blender, chopper, whisk, dough hooks.

    I also have a Braun stick blender. I like it but I have to be careful
    when putting it into a narrow container (like a can of diced tomatoes I
    want to break up) it very often churns up a big splashy mess! Then I
    say naughty words.

    Braun Multiquick, model MR 430 HC

    > b. happy with it?


    Quite. 200 watts. Lots of power (to the point where you really need
    to hang on if you're dipping it in something thick). Cleans up easily
    since drive motor detaches from ends. Lidded jar is useful for things
    like salad dressings and small quantities of sauces. Chopper is good
    for herbs and modest quantities of things that need to be chopped
    finely and would take longer doing it by hand. Don't use the whisk
    attachment much.

    Another Braun.

    The mini food processor attachment is perfect for stuff like pesto.

    Don't remember the brand but the price was about $20.00 - many years ago

    It works perfectly.

    Unless you plan to use it daily and a lot daily don't waste your money on
    the big expensive ones.

    Love my Braun - it was about thirty bucks and has the whisk (not used)
    and a mini processor. That used to get used a lot for raisins, spices
    herbs etc till I replaced my Zyliss non electric [ great for banging
    on and releasing frustrations ;-) ] and the blender part which I only
    use for stuff in deep pots or bowls (right Barb!)

    Absolutely "never found a use for it."

    I gave my daughter my old one she thought it was cool and if I gave
    mine to her, I'd have an excuse --- er-r-r, *reason* to buy a new one.
    Hers lives in her linen closet (not far from the kitchen) and I doubt it
    has ever seen the light of day since she acquired it. ** There's not
    a doubt in my mind ** that I'll ask her some day if she uses it much
    and the response will be, "You know, I never did! I thought I would but
    I didn't so I gave it to Goodwill!! No sense keeping it around."

    Shortly after I bought my new one, my portable mixer died and in seeking
    its replacement, I came across the Braun Multi-Mix. A friend bought it
    as a gift for me. Lucky me! I still have the second stick blender.
    Hardly used. I use my Multi-Mix a lot: mixer, blender, shopper;
    occasionally the whisk. I've never used the dough hooks.

    Around here, I would have absolutely no compunction walking into the
    thrift store carrying a covered jar of water (a widemouth jar, maybe a
    quart, 1/3 to 1/2 full) and asking the shop staff if I could plug one in
    and test it out. And they would certainly allow it, because all sales
    are final. They've seen stranger things than me, I'm pretty sure. :-)
