Jury trial should precede the acquisition of any new kitchen appliance, eg, a Tesco blender (£15)
DO WE NEED IT? How come we’ve reached our seventies without having this thing before? Has our life-style changed? Surely not - we live like Auvergnat peasants.
Counsel for the Defence,VR I need it to homogenise certain home-made soups. Cleaning the Magimix food processor (otherwise the love of my life) for this simple task is too onerous. Of course our life style is evolving: 50% of what we now drink comes from Burgundy
WILL WE USE IT? Is it simple to use? To clean? Are the benefits blindingly obvious? Can it be made readily accessible ? (See also below)
CftD, VR. Usage – idiot proof. Cleaning - 10-second job. Benefits – leek and potato soup; I rest my case. Readily accessible – yes, readily.
WHERE WILL IT GO? Any new appliance must be paid for in that most precious of kitchen commodities – work surface. Stored in a cupboard? Forget it!
CftD, VR. Admirably small footprint. Will sit next to the £75 Krups coffee percolator.
Judge. Field trial to begin when?
