The 33 year old Revolta is going to god. Although it still works, both of us are finding it so heavy to haul around and hard on our backs.
It has been replaced by this. Well it will be once I assemble it.
There you go. It runs from a rechargeable battery and is very light and a breeze to use and to clean. It's a Dyson Animal. There seems to be not a thing that has not been thought about in its design. It just works.
We bought a new microwave when we first moved here some 11 years ago. It did not take long for the display to fail to the point where it could barely be read. The interior had started to corrode and the last straw was the light stopped working. I will add it was extremely cheap. So this is our new Whirlpool. Of course it is loaded with features, most of which will never be used. It is reasonably quiet, which is good.
Last Thursday was a Mother Day. I had to get something for Mother at the local Ritchies Supermarket and I was asked if I wanted a free coffee tin. It is quite nice.
