Two things we want advice on: 1. Breadmaker 2. Dustbuster

170 weeks ago
We have a 6V Black and Decker Dustbuster. It works just fine for little tasks and messes around the house.
It's also got three different attachments for different tasks, and a wall charging mount so it's always charged and ready to go.
We didn't go for a wet and dry one, which adds to the price, as I'm not sure of the benefits of hoovering up anything 'wet'...
Main advice is that you may want to go above 6V - it does OK but sometimes feels a bit underpowered.

We have this one (the picture is a second hand unit on sale at Amazon). As breadmakers go this gets the job done. There are a bunch of more premium models that have more functions, bread types etc.
Breadmakers are convenient in that you throw everything in, press go and that's it.
But in terms of total time they take longer, and I don't think the bread tastes as good as making your own and oven baking. You can just use it to make the dough, but that's an expensive dough maker...

Cheap as chips (/bread) at Amazon. At this price why not have one? Unless the bread comes out tasting nicer from a more expensive option I can't see any benefit from some of the functions they're installing (like automatic fruit/nut dispensers... really, if you're THAT busy why are you making your own bread? :)

I'm tempted to get this one because it looks cool... not sure if will be powerful enough though.

I saw this in B&Q the other day, and it didn't strike me as easy to use. Very odd design.
This one looks tempting too. The cyclonic system makes it seem a bit like a Dyson. It's well reviewed on John Lewis. But it's not cordless.

This is actually battery powered. It is for picking up little bits of food, so perhaps wet and dry is a good idea...

Seems a bit more powerful than the others. Apparently the 18v Pivot is the one true dust buster, but it's much more expensive.
