Lizzzombie Tue 17-Jul-07 16:00:37 I missing the point of it? Am I doing something wrong? Its a piece of cr*p, I could mash things better with a piece of old toenail.
I'm cross that I wasted all my boots points on this. Grr.
Has anyone found other uses for their AK moulis?

i used it well once i realised if i stuck an old tea towel underneath to catch all the juice and if i used a sharp pointed knife to lock the grate into place it was fab

used it over a space of for hours to make four weeks of purrees then did blw instead

bng it on ebay and get some money back

Think I may have to. Unless I can make it work for producing DIY facepacks? Or maybe guaceomole/hummous for me. Or crushing up frozen magarhita mix!

A straightforward handblender is much more effective and much easier to clean (and much cheaper...)

OMG NO you are so NOT being unreasonable, I loathe mine too!! You end up with cramp in your arm, and cramp in the other hand holding the bloody thing.

It's such a piece of crap. I'm going to flog mine on Ebay.

Hello love. My el cheapo one from RANGE is brill. You can't hand blend certain things - a mouli is designed to remove the hard indigestible husks from things such as sweetcorn, dried apricots etc that would give LO tummy ache.

Take it back to boots and demand a refund. I would.

Yep potato and sweet potato you are not meant to hand blend, as it goes all starchy and horrible

Ok, so I can use it for potatoes and that is all right?
So really it should be sold as a potato moulis.
piece of shit!

Total piece of crap. Put mine in bin!! (Thought was unhygienic to sell/donate)

I just put the potatoes in with other stuff when using hand blender.
