    Buy an ex-commercial one. Commercial food equipment comes up all the time on the various auction sites (im not talking about ebay btw).

    Im not familiar with any auctions up in syd. Ive been attending auctions for work long before any of this online stuff came along. If you want to pick up a bargin attend the room or onsite auctions. If your prepared to wait you can pick up some amazing stuff.

    Be very carefull with the buyers premium and gst. Grays are the worst when it comes to that, im talking an extra 25% on top of the hammer price. Their postage rates are rather high as well. As soon as they started to adverts on ACA and TT they went to shit.

    Just do your research, I cant tell you the number of stories where people have paid many many times the retail value for a used clapped out piece of crap. The worst one was someone paying $650 for a winch that was selling on ebay for just over $100 delivered.

    I went into Victorias Basement today to buy a Cuisinart Duet. When I got to see it in person I was surprised how small the bowl was. I thought it was the same model I've used in the past.

    So instead I bought this for $199

    This thing is solid and feels as though it has the grunt of the robot coupe we use at work. It also comes with a juice extractor which I used this afternoon to good effect. The whisking attachment looks like it'll do a great job. The bowl is massive! Comes with a blender also.

    How's that Tefal going for you now?

    Our Breville died recently so it's time to get a new one. That thing looks like the goods.
