well, not exactly a recommendation, but a warning. I'd say watch out for black and decker. Mine functions well except, i read a lot of comments about the handle and lo and behold, my handle, which was wobbly, has snapped off. I think they have improved the design, but something to watch out for.
Also, I found, even when it was intact, the handle was much too short. I think these things need long handles to enable 2 handed use. so i would look out for that if I ever replace mine.
