Yes, Socci. You can buy them cheaper but they're usually nowhere near as good - the juice isn't as pure and they're harder to clean. Mine is pretty mid-range, you can spend £1000 on one if you're that way inclined !!! Mine was a birthday present too
Well I got my sexy new Moulinex food processor today (last one finally gave up the ghost after 10 years heavy use and constant dishwashering when it wasn't technically dishwasher proof!). This one I can shove in the dishwasher!
Of course, I've had to devote a whole cupboard in the kitchen to it and all its accessories [rolls eyes emoticon]
Our Mouilinex thingybob broke There's a flimsy little bit of plastic on the lid that acts as a saftey thingummy and the gadget will only start if the bit of plastic is slotted into a particular gap. Of course the stupid bit of plastic has now snapped off and will not glue back on again so that's £99 up the spout
