as the title says. mine has to be the hand blender. its just so useful and essential piece of equipment. ive gone through about 5 hand blenders in the past 2 and half years at work. now i've done the smart thing and bought one with product replacement cover for 3 years. been joking at work that i've gone through more hand blenders than any other chef anyone has seen and that i am likely to get banned from Argos for returning faulty kitchen equipment on a regular basis ha!
