Is it me but I think this is a pile of crap (speaking plainly!). DD was given one for her birthday, tried to make a Slush puppie today, absolutely impossible to crush the ice. Three adults tried and failed. The picture on the box shows a five year old doing it. It was bought in Argos I believe so I might take it back and ask for a credit note.
All the Ready Seady Cook products are CRAP! DD got a milkshake maker and a chocolate factory for her birthday a couple of years ago from friends/rellies and if I'd been quick enough I'd have got them out of the house for refunds/exchanges before she'd opened them.
There should be a permanent thread on here for 'Cr@p products'.
Thanks for those replies. I am now on a mission to get my DD a replacement present. If Argos won't take it back I'm going to write to the company that makes it and ask for some money so she can buy a present that works.
Anyone know how much it costs, can't find it in the current book?
She got the chocolate maker last Christmas but I hid it - bad mama. Similar experience with Barbie sweet maker. DD even said to me "Mum, this is ridiculous". I did laugh.
They shouldn't be allowed to disappoint our kids like this on the back of a reputable (?) and popular name like Ready Steady Cook. What would Ainsley say?
You go girl! DH takes the mick out of me for the same thing. I once wrote to Matlows, the makers of the drumstick lolly, telling them their new improved drumstick was an inferior imposter to the original. Imagine my surprise when I heard a huge thud one morning and they had sent me jiffy bags packed full of sweets in the post
DH wants me to write to Nestle cos he bought a bag of fun size goodies for the kids the other day and there weren't any Aeros in it and lots of jelly tots instead. He was so annoyed I couldn't stop laughing. He's turned into my nan. !!!
I am happily eating all the jelly tots though - see other thread on "stuffing"!!
I have found in the past though if you write a civil letter you will get compensated. Ready Steady Cook will probably send me one of each of their crap products!!!!
yup-we have "popcorn maker"-10w lightbulb makes 3 kernels an hour and the ice cream maker-tiny amount of processed e numbers sludge.
They have been on watchdog for being cr*p too.
BUT they still make and sell the flipping things.
