Our crew on the ground at IFA, though not exactly master chefs, still know a good kitchen appliance when they see one. And they were very impressed by a demo of the Philips Robust Collection, five premium kitchen appliances fashioned from modern materials such as shockproof glass, plastics and metal die cast, with couplings made of Zytel plastic, a light metal replacement used by BMW and Mercedes for their sports cars. The result is a blender, food processor, hand blender, juicer and mixer that Philips says proved virtually unbreakable in drop tests, as well as looking good in any modern kitchen.
November 5, 2004 The Daiquiri Whacker from SR Leisure Time Products isn't your mother's blender. This petrol-driven, portable daiquiri blender has motorcycle-like handles and a twist-grip throttle so you can mix that daquiri just right! At the twist of a wrist, you can have 23cc of raw power whip your ice into a frenzy not to mention making a lot of noise. An ideal Christmas present for the missus. The Daiquiri Whacker gas powered blender is totally portable and needs no extension cords or generators to take the fine art of blending drinks out of the kitchen and into new party zones. The 23cc Homelite motor has enough power to whip up a batch of your favourite blended drink faster than you can say "Dos Margaritas Por Favor!"
