What everyone should remember is that when it comes to buying goods like this, which involve using components that are routinely subject to wear and tear as part of their normal function, such as cutting blades, is the availability of spare parts and their cost. At best, there will be a sole, exclusive supplier of spare parts for an Aldi blender/chopper, and even then you might find it impossible to actually get the parts.

I don't mind buying Aldi DIY tools that take generic accessories and spare parts, eg drills, but unique products like this, I would steer well away from. Mind you that issue also applies to many devices like this sold on the High Street and places like Currys and Argos as well.

I bought a 1970s Kenwood Chef with loads of attachments on Gumtree for this amount of money almost five years ago. I fully expect it to last another 40 years.

FWIW I've had a few of these types of products before - keep in mind that they come with a guarantee. In my experience this has covered the spare parts too. On a few occasions I've had to have replacement parts for similar goods. Getting hold of them was as difficult as calling the phone number on the warranty card, and the replacement cost was £0, delivered to my door. (Although the delivery did take a few weeks..)

Can't guarantee that it would be the same with this, but it's my experience so far.

That's fine as far as equipment failure is concerned, but not wear and tear or misuse.

Look, the whole spare parts field is a bit of a mine-field. I have got a Braun Multiquick that I can't get appropriate parts for because DeLonghi, who use the Braun name under licence, withdrew that product range from the UK market several years ago.

Even if you can get parts, they can often be prohibitively expensive when compared to the original cost of the whole tool or equipment or the cost of replacing the whole thing.

I know that a few people have been burned by buying certain tools from B&Q in the past that are B&Q own-brands and then being told that spare parts are not available in the UK and that they have to replace the whole thing outside warranty. It's a pretty universal issue, particularly for cheap import brands, where there is no real local support infrastructure.

I'm only really stating the obvious, but it is worth bearing in mind. I have a couple of nice little li-ion drill-drivers, one Lidl, the other AEG. I'm betting that once the warranty period expires, that if, say, the trigger mechanism fails, then that will be that because I won't be able to get a suitable spare part for either, while if I had bought B&D, DeWalt, Milwaukee or Bosch, then it would probably not be a problem unless the kit was really old. However, the B&D equivalent was poor value for money and the Bosch, DeWalt and Milwaukee equivalents were simply out of my price range. I guess it's all part of the territory when making purchase decisions, that's all.

how do these compare to the kenwood ones from argos?
