Not Your Mother’s Mixer
January 19, 2011 § 3 Comments
I don’t know what it is about saving the boxes from household appliances. It always seems like a good idea. Thoughts such as, “What if I have to return it? ” or “I might want the box when I move” pervade the mind that is already overexcited about having a new product in the home. The thing is, if the appliance is still in your house, chances are you’ll never return it. And if you move, you’re probably going to be using non-specific boxes anyway. Who has the time and discipline to pack up their items so methodically when approaching a move? If you’re reading this blog, chances are you’re not that person either.
By the way, I love this Black and Decker hand mixer. Sleek in shape and black in shade, it comes in its own self-contained case–it’s not your mother’s hand mixer. As a woman who fully supports my gender’s liberation but also enjoys cooking from time to time, I can fully appreciate a kitchen tool that feels more like a power tool when you use it. Very sexy.
I’m keeping the appliance but getting rid of the ridiculously extraneous box.
If what you crave is empty boxes, apparently you can order a high-end version.
