Advantages: Lots of attachments
Disadvantages: Heavy, a bit of a faff just to use the liquidiser
I inherited one of these off my grandma so I can't tell you about cost but I had been looking to get one for quite a while. To be honest, I mainly use it for the liquidiser and because I only have a small kitchen, I have to keep it on top of a cupboard. I normally make a big bowl of soup and some passata for lasagne/spag bol on a Sunday ao I only get it down once a week and it is a bit heavy and a bit of a faff. Although, not buying soup and tom sauce is really economical so it does outweigh the disadvantages.
I just wash it in the sink along with my normal washing up, obviously the liquidiser blades are sharp so you need to be careful and definitely don't let children do it!
Hopefully, when I get a bigger kitchen, I'll be able to stand it in a corner and not have to get the step ladder out when I want to use it.
I haven't used the whisk/mixer yet but like I said, when I have enough room in my kitchen, maybe I'll become a domestic goddess! Cakes, Bread, meringues! My hubby would probably die of shock if I made that sort of thing!
Anyway, I wouldn't queue to get one just for liquidising but they are a good bit of kit, especially if you've got a mincer attachment and you can use up leftovers by adding them to mince. Like I said, I was given this when my grandma died so I don't know how much the bits and pieces cost separately. They are an investment though so you will save loads of money by making your own food etc.
It is a real work horse and quite heavy duty, I know my mum's had one for years and never had any problems with it.
Summary: Great if you've enough room in your kitchen
