It, and the attachments are still going strong... although I think I have only used the grater/slicer 3 times. My Mum got her Kenwood as a wedding present in 1960 and that is still going having been used at least weekly for its entire life as my Mum loves to bake. Your chef is an excellent investment @rad

    As for my Christmas presents , Mr gee40 bought me a lovely new bag

    I got a handbag, a couple of books of studies for the French Horn, a subscription to Private Eye, and some new car mats amongst other things.
    I have my mum's Kenwood Chef which she bought in the 70's. It is still going strong and has all its attachments

    Most impressive!

    I got lots of lego - technic car, x wing and a replica drop ship. Considered the r2 / Death Star purchase but no idea where I'd put it!

    Not a Xmas present as such - but when I was up visiting my folks my sister gave me her Kenwood Gourmet food processor which had been a wedding present in the early 80s - with all the blades and the ice cream maker attachment - she said she had on;y used it a couple of times - its a glorious "champagne" colour

    I remember these words from a good while ago:

    "When is a boy not a boy? You actually ask for socks for Christmas. You get socks. You are happy."
