Sounds like you are not having a good day. Sit down, put your feet up and have a nice cup of tea.

I just blew up my hand blender! Sparks, flame, smoke! I'm sad! This was the very first kitchen appliance I ever had! That and a coffee grinder. WAAAAAAA!

That sucks! I broke mine trying to make homemade pumkin seed butter. Darn I miss that thing, taking out the food processor is such a pain.

Bummer.

How old was it?

They got really cool ones now, with attachments. Mine has a whisk and a mini-food processor.

Relaxing with a glass of wine. I've done all my shopping, paid my bills, and made a low and slow braised pork sirloin. It's resting too.

It was 25. It owed me nothing, but I loved that thing! It was a Braun. I'll go shop for a new one now.

RIP, Alix's hand blender. I felt similarly when my 25 yo spice (coffee) grinder bit the dust awhile ago.

I had a braun and it was the best one that I have ever owned, gave it to a friend. My cuisinart works fine, but that braun was tough!
