I think it will be an investment into our future in terms of saving time making dinner. Particularly when I head back to work more.
I like your terminology - very clear! My stick mixer is not in good shape at 6 years but was a cheap one given to me for my birthday. When I read up on the reviews of the combo ones many said not to overload it if using the food processing bowls, so I think we will definitely need a heavy duty food processor instead and a stick mixer on the side!
Thank you for your help - much clearer now.

I just got a breville kitchen wizz. That was reduced to $60 at big w a few days ago. It seems good.
It has a 2 ltr bowl.

I think mine is a sunbeam (I'll check in the morning).
I bought it almost 10years ago for about $50. It's still working great. I only have the stick blender attachment, but I've got a food processor for everything else.

I have a Braun stick mixer which came with whisk and herb chopping bowl. I also have a Kenwood food processor, which has a coffee-grinder (so same size as the herb bowl). I tend to pull out the stick+herb bowl for small quantities over the Kenwood as it's just easier to grab and set up.
If I had to replace my stick mixer, without a doubt I would get a metal one so I could wizz hot soup without worrying about it melting!

I have a breville all in one and never had any issues. It's almost 2 years old now and still going strong. My fav attachment is the potato masher.

I have the kenwood stick tri blade and the kenwood food processor and I rate them both they are used quite regularly for DH and I. The only trouble I have is with the stick blenders little food processor lid is difficult to clean especially after hubby submerged it in water so it's more operator error than the stick blades fault. I use the processor for dough and baking no worries - it was a 21st gift and going strong (ahem) nearing 8 years now

It sounds as though the reviews for many of these machines aren't the norm then. Will pop into a couple of shops and ask them about some of them and which ones have the most call-backs I think.
Thank you for all your input - I've put off getting something for years due to cost so I didn't want to buy one with constant problems. I'm in the middle of turfing out a lot of things at the moment - maybe I can put those funds towards it. Have bags of things out everywhere! It's right about now that one would expect a large amount of guests to turn up
