Cookery programmes are becoming even more popular on television, especially competitions to find the best amateur chefs and cake makers. People are getting more interested in cooking at home, either as a way to relax or as a way to enjoy different types of food. There is also an increased interest in healthy drinks and juices made from a variety of fruit and vegetables. There is no need to spend time chopping up all the fruit and veg, as a gadget such as a Blixer can do this for you. This appliance is a blender and a mixer in one.
