Next time take it to Costco. If they carry it they will return it for you. They are wonderful about gifts.

This was before there was a Costco in town, several years ago. Besides, that would be kind of like the woman who bought jeans and Sears taking them to JCPenney to return them, wouldn't it? He didn't buy the Braun at Costco so why should they have to handle the return and give me my money back?

If you find it a real fuss and bother using the food processor to puree stuff, this neat little appliance comes in handy for pureeing soft veggies right in the pot for soups and gravies!

Here is what I use...

http://www.surlatable.com/common/pro...?PRRFNBR=16524



It's made by Cuisinart. It's very easy to clean as it's almost all stainless. The whisk attachment is pretty much useless, but the blender and processor attachments see regular use in my kitchen. $50 isn't a bad price either.

I don't even own a large food processor. I use the little mini processor attachment for almost everything, from making bread crumbs to emulsifying dressings.

I own an older Cuisinart stick blender.

It still works, so no need to replace it.

Based on this thread and the one earlier on stick blenders; I ordered a Braun from Amazon on Saturday and got it in the mail today!!! Thank you to all with your suggestions and experiences; it really helped me make up my mind to get one. Now, to plan on what to make so that I can play with my new kitchen toy!!!!!

It's hard to find Cusinart, my preferred brand, in this part of the world. Can't buy it in the U.S. either because of the 220 volt requirement in most of Asia (as opposed to the 110v of the U.S.).

So I make do with what's available. My slightly used Moulinex immersion blender started hiccuping on me so I got the Braun 600 watt professional immersion blender with multiple attachments. Even came with an ice crusher and a mini-blender for very small jobs. It's the most frequently used gadget in my kitchen.

Cuisinart has gone by the way of cheap flimsily-made products and poor customer service.

Conair (a hair dryer co.) bought them out. The make their food processors with smaller feed tubes and wimpy motors, which is why I switched to the K'Aid Pearl Metallic Food Processor.
